Finally, Nigeria’s Kidnapped Schoolgirls Are Coming Home

"On Friday, Nigeria’s government announced it had reached a deal with Boko Haram to release the approximately 200 schoolgirls held captive by the Islamist terror group since April.

The agreement, announced by the country’s defense minister, also involves a cease fire between Boko Haram and Nigeria’s military. The government expects the terror group will not back out on the deal. “Commitment among parts of Boko Haram and the military does appear to be genuine,” an official with Nigeria’s security forces told Reuters Friday. “It is worth taking seriously.”

Boko Haram militants abducted more than 300 schoolgirls from Chibok boarding school in northern Nigeria in mid-April, sparking a worldwide outcry and propelling the group onto to the international stage for the first time. Over fifty of the girls escaped early on. The rest have remained in captivity ever since.”

As reported by Mother Jones 

AWESOME NEWS - this has been such a nightmare to follow, it is so great to hear the girls are being released!

Finally.

Wooo!!!!

Why can't white people have pride

Black people: *raises fist* Black Power!* cooks* puts on cultural clothing*
Latinos: *Raises flag of individual nation* cooks* puts on cultural clothing*
Asian: people: Raises flag of individual nation* cooks* puts on cultural clothing*
White: White power! *considers every other race inferior*forces other races to give up cultures*spreads disease*commits genocide against a race of people because they're different and have land* Steals said land* kidnaps other race of people* enslaves them* brings them to said land* calls it the land of the free* rape,tortures, experiments, kills enslaved people* frees these people for political and financial reasons* dons white hoods terrorizes these people for over a century* takes pics smiling and having a picnic while these peoples bloody and charred bodies hang from trees* Makes souvenirs of these people body parts well into the 60s*sterilizes and experiments on these people without their consent up until the 70s(hell, probably still going on)* Creates beauty standard that no else can live up to* white washes history so that history begins with white contact and we have to do our own research to find out what really happened*Claims to be the only civilized race*
And that's just scratching the surface of American history. History tells us that y'all just don't know how to have white pride without some kind of craziness ensuing.Why not just have national pride? Y'all know where y'all came from.
