    Nigeria, The Yoruba Wars

    The Yoruba Wars
    The Yoruba WarsOyo, the great exporter of slaves in the eighteenth century, collapsed in a civil war after 1817, and by
    the middle of the 1830s the whole of Yorubaland was swept up in these civil wars. New centers of power--Ibadan,
    Abeokuta, Owo, and Warri--contested control of the trade routes and sought access to fresh supplies of slaves, which
    were important to repopulate the turbulent countryside. At this time, the British withdrew from the slave trade and began
    to blockade the coast (see Abolition of the Slave Trade , this ch.). The blockade required some adjustments in the slave
    trade along the lagoons that stretched outward from Lagos, while the domestic market for slaves to be used as farm
    laborers and as porters to carry commodities to market easily absorbed the many captives that were a product of these
    wars.
    War and slave raiding were complementary exercises among the Yoruba, who needed capital to buy the firearms with
    which they fought in a vicious cycle of war and enslavement. Military leaders were well aware of the connection between
    guns and enslavement.

    the point is the post made you look like

    a hypocrate with the post you made after all that talk about "wisdom",
    and staleness, because there is nothing more stale, then an individual that fears to act like an adult time after time and post after post

    Now if the truth is irritating that seems more like the attitude of someone who feels they have white previliedge, and like Bush has a hatred for the truth

    FROM A SANTERIA WEBSITE;
    Slave wars between the Dahomey Kingdom and Yoruba Kingdoms as well as Yoruba inter-kingdom slave wars made it easy for the European slave hunters to come in and capture the casualties of the Yoruba wars.

    The real reason for this post, was not only to present a balance on the discussion of

    slavery,

    But actually it was the shock I felt after hearing a noted Black scholar, on The Eric Caldwell show on WBAI FM yesterday;

    the statement regading the Yoruba wars and slavery was about half way through the presentaion

    at the date of Jan/22/10 3PM

    I was shocked at what I had heard and honstly hoped tha others here with a knowledge of Nigerian history or Yoruba history would say something about the Yoruba wars

    Everyone knows about the Yoruba wars. absolutely nothing new there. as pointed out in another thread your obsession with weak old googleized information sucks. you just like to stir up ****, and then start another thread about unity. your **** is so old.
    Ghandi himself would kick your ***

    what everyone knwos about what?

    You are in a glass house or something,

    folks don't put on a dress when you make statements about other religions and slavery,

    but you put on a Rue Paul outfit, if any one asks a question about Yoruba, and then have the nerve to make a post saying this;

    To be humble is not to be weak, but to be open-minded and flexible in our thinking where no situation can unbalance us or make us lose our integrity. It was with this mindset of humility, openness, and patience, firmly rooted in the principles of Ifa, that Ifa traditional scientist used tolerance in their interactions with those different than themselves

    everyone knows about the wars instigated by the british in the area, and how that played out as regards to the slave trade. do you have something new to offer, or just more of the same putput level stupidity. Yes Yoruba elders practiced tolerance with knuckleheads, but Orunmila himself would have to slap the white outta you! lol
    what is your point in starting this thread?
    this has been discussed already ad nauseaum. did we really need another thread about slavery?
    Or is this about putput's egomania?
