It’s 2016! Resolutions have been made, goals have been set. We will all try to be better, kinder, more generous, loving…but not online, behind a screen where nobody can see. There, we will continue the ‘hate’.

Anchoring our country down in bitterness and pain that comes with a people who have had to live in a world where everything religious, tribal or gender is a potential sin waiting to be branded on anyone with the misfortune to be born into a contrary group.

But #ToleranceClass is a social movement that looks set to reorient the way we communicate. Determined to curb hate speech on Nigerian blogs and social media by promoting ‘tolerance’, the movement talks about introducing ‘Tolerance‘ as a subject in Nigerian nursery, primary and secondary schools.

Watch the documentary that tells the story of #ToleranceClass

    Bella make sure you post this.The problem isn’t the people who write the comments it’s the blogs who approve the comments and still approve the hate comments.You give people the platform to hate,you control it but the hate is still approved?

      I think we can all agree on this as a fact. BN was different in the past because.they did not tolerate the hate. But it became clear in 2015 that BN was all about the clicks and significantly dropped their standard and morals to allow hate reign and get those clicks.

    But for a few intelligent comments, everyone should grab a history book from all angles, look at the realities of today and be opened minded.

    This campaign should be extended to our tertiary institutions. Education is a continuous process. We should even take it to the streets.

    What about twitter? That’s the worse place. No one is there to approve their comments. So forget blog matter

    Is the person behind the post not a human being with a brain and therefore a conscience? Nigerians should stop looking to other people to check them for them. Check yourself! You know what you’re typing you cant say it to the person’s face. You know what you’re saying will pain you if somebody said it too. But we want to continue and blame Bella or Linda Ikeji. Please I hope this thing works

    YES to this Video!!! And Oreka Godis, gosh! you have a Beautiful mind. I’m so feeling the light you’re spreading. #ToleranceClass should be mandatory in Nigeria. Not only in schools but in the work place, religious settings, political offices, our media personalities, artiste etc. Most people need reorientation in Nigeria because we are too narrow minded and we communicate a lot from our uninformed decisions. This is the first step of action we need to see positive change and for our “prayers” to begin to take shape for Nigeria! Please, my fellow BNers let us improve in 2016.

    BN refusing to post in order not to “perpetuate the hate” does not mean it is not happening and other arms of media will refuse to air it. We need to stop shying away from “facts”; we assess them, hold on to the “truths” and become better. To stop the hate, you and I need to work on our hearts. 🙂

    On an even more serious note, only Christ can change our hearts. I know this because He is changing mine to mine.
