From the New York Times 31 years ago:

Ethnic Quota For Nigerians Is Challenged
By JAMES BROOKE and SPECIAL TO THE NEW YORK TIMES, NOV. 6, 1988

At the age of 11, Adeyinka Badejo is learning the hard way about affirmative action, Nigerian style.

The daughter of an eminent political science professor here, Miss Badejo hoped last month to win admission to a Nigerian Unity School – a Government-financed prep school for top universities here and abroad.

To Miss Badejo’s dismay, she discovered that several of her sixth-grade classmates scored lower than she did on a national test, but that they won admission to the prestigious boarding school system. In this West African nation where virtually everyone is of the same race, the difference is ”state of origin” – often a code phrase in Nigeria for tribe.

Miss Badejo scored 293 on a 400-point test – three points below the cutoff for girls from Ogun state, a southern state largely populated by members of the Yoruba tribe. If she had been born to parents from Kano state, the northern heartland of the Hausa and Fulani tribes, she would have sailed into a Unity School with a score as low as 151.

Miss Badejo’s rejection was a result of Nigeria’s policy of ”reflecting the federal character.” Through nationally mandated quotas, this policy is intended to insure that Nigeria’s disadvantaged tribal groups have equal access to higher education and to Government employment.

Femi Badejo, Adeyinka’s father and a professor at the University of Lagos, decided to sue Nigeria’s Minister of Education on the grounds that the Unity School’s admission policy constitutes discrimination.

In Nigeria, Africa’s most populous nation and one of its most diverse, the case has attracted attention comparable to lawsuits challenging affirmative action programs in the United States.

    I don’t have a problem with tax dollars going to children who, “reflect the federal character.” That seems very reasonable.

  6. “in this West African nation where virtually everyone is of the same race”

    I thought race didn’t exist? Presumably back in 1988 this settled science hadn’t yet been discovered. I just can’t remember the Nobel-winning paper that proved it – Lewontin?

    “the difference is ”state of origin” – often a code phrase in Nigeria for tribe”

    In Steve’s lumpers vs splitters world, tribe is just a sub-race of the larger racial category.

    Churchill wrote of “the grand old British race”, yet the grand old English had a lot of scraps and differences with the grand old Scottish and Welsh – and the grand old Irish too.

    We may even have had the odd difference with the grand old Prussian race and the grand old French race – and the grand old Castilians.

    In Kenya at election time people can still tell who’s a member of which tribe, when it’s time to start beating people in the streets and setting fire to them.

    Nigeria is Yoruba is the South West, Igbo in the South East, and Hausa in the North. African states are pretty corrupt, but the ethnic mix in Nigeria means that people’s energies are often spent just syphoning money to their ethnic group. This doesn’t happen in more ethnically harmonious countries like Ghana – which has roughly the same corruption as Bulgaria:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corruption_Perceptions_Index

  16. (120 languages, RH, and the Fulan are not even “West African”. Gerhard Rohlfs rated their women as the most beautiful and horniest he had seen in Africa and wondered why they fetched the highest prices, as they were said to not work as hard or be as fertile ;b)

    Given the alternative in these latitudes is abject tribalry interspersed with bloody uprisings I would not judge too harshly 😀

    … Nigeria might or might not be affirmatively actioning, but Oxford is – rot has reached the head of this fish:

    Nigeria is made up of four main tribes. Yoruba, Hausa, Fuani and Igbo. If there were no affirmative action the Igbo would absolutely dominate the schools – the Igbo converted to Christianity some centuries ago, stopped cousin marriage and are a mercantile people – a market dominate minority in Amy Chua’s framework. Their heartland is in the Niger Delta…which has the oil. In the 1960s they tried to form their own country – Biafra. The rest of Nigeria did not want to lose the oil and starved them out, hundreds of thousands died.

    About every time you hear about a black kid admitted to every Ivy League school it is almost always an Igbo.

    I am related to Jenny Jerome. My paternal grandmother was a relative of hers. Second cousin or something on Ms. Jerome’s mother’s side.

    Her genealogy has been traced back over 1000 years on her mother’s side, including British nobility and royalty, including kings both before and after William the Bastard.

    There is no evidence whatsoever of any Indian, Jewish or African ancestry.

    Because of this I know some of my ancestors from over 1000 years ago. It is interesting to see the regression of royal blood over the centuries. First kings and queens, then dukes and earls, then lords and ladies, then knights, finally well educated commoners. My favorite ancestor’s name was Sir Robert of Swinerton. Bobby, the royal knight of the pigs.

    The supposed Jewish blood was her father. Her father was from a Huguenot family that escaped the Catholics and fled to America. Despite what the Catholics said, Huguenots were Christians.

    The supposed Jewish blood was a slur by the anti-Churchill faction in the UK. The supposed Indian blood was one of those family legends that many old American families have. Sometimes they are true, sometimes not.

  32. @Steve Sailer

    As I mentioned in another post on this thread, some of Jenny Jerome’s mother’s ancestors were British big shots, and they could trace their ancestry back to royalty both before and after William the Bastard.

    A number of my ancestors were educated New Englanders.

    The less well born can only be traced to their landing in America.

    The professional class could trace their ancestry a century or two in England.

    The upper crust could trace their ancestry back to royalty.

    I would suspect much of the British upper crust have their ancestry traced back at least to 1066, often further.

    One of the top recommendations was move to North Dakota.

    The reason was likely withheld; the correlation being enough for the tipsters. Though, the tip may be useless if magic dirt isn’t the reason. Which it isn’t.

    The detailed ethnic Geography of the United States borders on the esoteric (and in fact extends into the esoteric if you have any interest in etymology of place names, knowledge of ancient caste systems, and interest in very distant history and identity).

    The Upper Midwest is the most Nordic portion of the United States, with North Dakota “the roof” being the most Nordic of those States absent modern immigration. Even relatively modern Nords (of the past few hundred years) seemed to know that bitterly cold winters were in their better interest.

    Part of the esoteric knowledge of ethnic geography here is knowing where historic Irish migration begins and ends. Most of what is considered to be Nordic territory here is heavily mixed with Irish genetics that later arrived.

    All of this information hints at why ND has always been one of the most functional States if not the most functional US State. I believe, to this day, that its State banking system is the only one that is independent from the Federal Reserve.

    AA weakens groups/nations. The New York Times wishes to weaken White nations relative to others.

  35. Is the affirmative action in Nigeria also by skin tone? Fifty shades of black!

    AA is a British legacy, part of their divide and conquer strategy wherever they colonized. They leave this poison pill on all their former colonies to ensure people continue fighting after they leave. Just look at what they did to Malaysia. First by importing all the Chindians to that country, then leave them with a race based affirmative action that’s kept those groups fighting with the indigenous Malays for the past 70 years. Truly evil.

    The same regression happened in my mother’s family. They once were wealthy merchants on Fleet Street in London. (They were also Freemasons, but let’s not get into that.) During the 18th and 19th centuries, they translated their financial success into reproductive success. One of them married three times and had close to twenty children.

    Unfortunately they overshot their niche. Not all of those children could make a living as merchants, and with each generation they fell further and further down the social ladder. Many of them went into shipbuilding, and many of their children ended up becoming peddlers or common laborers. Those were the ones who came to Canada.

    Malaysia has affirmative action, too, or more like the SBA’s loans for underserved communities. It doesn’t work, either, as customers can detect the rigging. A business sprung from social engineering usually lacks the verve and drive to get and retain customers.

    That would have been a gigantic cover-up conspiracy, with thousands of American genealogists involved.

    https://winstonchurchill.org/resources/genealogy/he-had-iroquois-ancestors/

    Jennie Jerome’s parents were married in the Western Presbyterian Church on the corner of Main and Church Streets. This is the only intersection in the US, perhaps the world, on which all four corners host a church.

    The supposed Jewish blood was her father. Her father was from a Huguenot family that escaped the Catholics and fled to America. Despite what the Catholics said, Huguenots were Christians.

    It’s not impossible for there to be a stray Jewish ancestor among the population that Huguenots came from, but that would make Churchill marginally more Jewish than the Fonda family is Italian, even though that’s what their surname is.

    One thing I noticed is Jenny Jerome was born in Brooklyn.

    I know my grandmother had New Netherlands Dutch blood. After the Revolution the Dutch were very prominent in New York. The rich English in NY almost all sided with the Mother Country during the Revolution, while almost all the prominent Dutch sided with the Colonies. The rich English were driven up to Canada, while the rich Dutch stayed and prospered in New York. As late as the early 1970s NYC had a Dutch mayor (John Lindsey). Not to mention two 20th century presidents (TR and FDR).

    I have no idea if Jenny Jerome had Dutch blood, but it is quite likely since she shared some ancestry with my grandmother and also came from a heavily Dutch area. When Ms. Jerome worked out her genealogy back to old England, she was trying to show the upper class Brits she was as English as they were. She would downplay any Dutch traitors to the Crown

    I went to an elite university that has historically struggled to pull students from the other end of the country. While I likely would have been admitted in any case, I was awarded a very generous scholarship, nearly a full ride at this expensive school.

    I later learned I was one of only 3 students from my state in my freshman class, and I gathered that the administration thought it essential that they be able to say they have students from all 50 states every year.

    I don’t know that Harvard struggles to get quality students from all 50 states every single year, but certain schools in the top 20 absolutely do and probably still think it important to address this.

    There was still a similar policy in 2013.
    https://www.vanguardngr.com/2013/06/why-govt-should-revisit-admission-quota-system/

    The test scores are different now (200 possible vs. 400). The link above has a list of NCEE cutoffs for each state/locality. And the fun part (don’t tell the SJWs, because some of the female cutoffs are higher so they might have a stroke) is for some states they have different male/female cutoffs.

    The differences in the cutoff scores are staggering (range from 2 – 139). Our little ~1 SD boost for blacks looks trivial in comparison.

    I wonder how useful these score cutoffs are for making inferences about the IQ of different groups in Nigeria.

    P.S. If you are interested in learning more about this, search for “nigeria federal character”.
    For example: https://www.legit.ng/1174879-what-federal-character-principle-nigeria.html
    From there: “The federal character was stated in Nigeria’s 1999 Constitution.”

    The Malays, who make up about 70% of the country, are the recipients of affirmative action at the expense of the Chinese.

    So the Chinese will often send their kids off to the US or UK for education, while the Malays get preference for the lower quality Malaysian colleges.

    Also, Chinese from Malaysia and Indonesia get special preferences for colleges in Taiwan. I lived in Taiwan for a while, and at one point an Indonesian-Chinese friend of mine was jumped and beaten by some Taiwanese who hadn’t been able to get into college and were upset about the special treatment given to the Indonesia Chinese.

    When the smoke clears, the Chinese are driven more and more into business, and the disparity of wealth has grown sometimes because of the affirmative action.
