"I happen to be a member of the "fun-loving" Yoruba (as the British characterized us back in the early days of colonialism). We have a reputation for being hotly argumentative, charmingly treacherous and highly pragmatic, as loose in our morals as we are in our religion — at least according to the Igbo, the other dominant ethnic group in the south. On the other hand, it is said by some Yoruba that the Igbo would be willing to sacrifice their own parents in the pursuit of money, which they get largely by trading, sometimes in drugs.
As for all the "minorities" in between, there's no telling what they get up to in their myriad languages, which few understand, even if we all speak English."

I love how we race to the New York Times to say these things.
