    if you want I an make a new one, with 3d effects, opacity variations, and lots of filters. Would that help? Hey! then I could impress you again! My life's work and dream!
    Yes please, and can we have Canada and Australia this time, and preferably with Canada in red, and Australia in gold.

    I totaly get, and agree with your point, but I can be so shallow sometimes, and I do enjoy pretty colours, and it might help some of the others get the very obvious point too.

    I am to have very large biceps, and a tiny clogged up heart.

    Best go to the gym instead of continuing to make useless arguments here. By single 'white culture' i mean one that is common to every white person on earth.

    FACT 1: There is no such thing as 'white culture' common to every single white person on earth

    FACT 2: There is no such thing as 'black culture' common to every single black person on earth

    FACT 3: Having a 'White Society' at university is pointless and ultimately will not work, given the difficulty in even defining what 'white culture' is

    FACT 4: I can draw better diagrams than you BRO, don't let your head swell too much

    Peace out

    I'd argue FACT 3 with you. See post 205.

    Because the culture within say, Northern Nigeria is totally different to that of the Euroba in the south.

    If they dont share the same culture, then there is no Nigerian culture on your reckonin.

    I have neither the time nor patience to read all of the pages of this. However, it must be said that the MINORITIES are far better placed to have societies than the MAJORITIES who have an assumed control.

    Well, its not pointless. Why should the existance of a White Society at a university depend on agreement between its members on the definition of a white culture?

    Most universities have a Christian Society of some sorts but it isn't full of Christians who are in universal doctrinal agreement. For example, the RC members will put a lot more weight on the importance of sacramentalism than the baptists. They are all Christians but cannot agree on some of the finer points of Christianity. Does that make the Christian Society purposeless?

    And so, if a group of black students want to start a Black Society or a group of white students want to start a White Society then they should be able to do so even if they cannot identify what it is that bonds them culturally as blacks or whites. It's surely a matter of freedom of association rather than intellectual justification.
    If you have a White Society that isn't based on a common 'white culture' then what the hell would it be based on? The whole point of having societies is to bring people with common interests together! Christian Society is for Christians i.e. followers of Christ. That's the common ground, even though each sect varies from the other they have common beliefs in God, Jesus Christ, our need to acknowledge a higher being etc etc but that's goin off the point.

    NO. I'm said there was no such thing as single 'black culture' common to every black person on earth. That in no way translates to what you're saying at all.

    Tsk tsk tsk, how sad when, realising your arguments are pointless, you have to resort to cheap blows like that, which frankly don't affect me at all. Cardiff is quite lovely mind, and I'm glad I chose it when I could have gone anywhere in the world on an Open Schol. Thanks for the red gem too... proves you're so easily riled up, would love to continue this another day.

    Peace, love and an extra spicy potato roti BRO!!! mwah

    Well, they would have a common interest. Wishing to form a society for white people.

    I know this might be stating the blindingly obvious, but has anyone stopped to consider trying it here, to see what would happen?

    I know this is not a university per se, but it is a forum populated by students, that does have societies.

    Why doesn't someone go and try and set up a white society, or a black society, for that matter, and see the reactions and feedbacks?

    It would perhaps be more conclusive than mere speculation.

    So what is the SINGLE CULTURE common to two entirely different regions of Nigeria? How can you contend that there is a NIGERIAN culture - when in fact it is made up of a number of different cultures?
