Nigerian breaks academic record at John Hopkins University

A 22-year-old Nigerian has emerged one of the top graduating students of John Hopkins University in the United States. He obtained a Grade Point Average of 3.98 out of a possible 4.0 to earn a degree in Neurosciences, SEGUN OLUGBILE writes.

A 22-year-old Nigerian, Emmanuel Ohuabunwa, has made history at John Hopkins University, United States of America. Ohuabunwa from Arochukwu, Abia State, has done the nation proud by becoming the first black man to make a Grade Point Average of 3.98 out of 4.0 to bag a degree in Neurosciences in the university. He was also adjudged as having the highest honours during the graduation that was held on May 24 this year.

For his efforts, he has won a scholarship to Yale University to pursue a degree in medicine. Besides, he has been inducted into Phi Beta Kappa Society, a prestigious honour group that features membership of 17 US Presidents, 37 US Supreme Court Justices, and 136 Nobel Prize winners.

What record did he break, again?

He should marry the first female ape chess master, if there were one. You wrote that story as well.

If such stories cause you such severe psychological distress then I suggest you avoid reading them.

No, I like tall tales.

This is how the Afican Americans treated Ohuabunwa in school in America and now they embrace his achievements. PATHETIC !!!!!!!!!!

Speaking about how he moved to the US, Ohuabunwa said “my parents moved the whole family when I was 13 years old

“I went to Fondren Middle School, which was in the middle of the ghetto. That was one of the darkest years for me because I encountered a lot of peer pressure. Some of the students, ignorant about Africa, bullied me and called me names such as ‘African booty scratcher’ because to them, Africans were dirty and scratched their butts all the time.

“Some asked me if I lived in mud huts and ate faeces for breakfast.

“I remember one day, when I was walking to the school bus, a boy came from behind and punched me in the face, called me an African and walked away."

To bad he is African and Not African American. If he was African American he would be standing on the corner rapping about Bytches and Hoes or even better he would be dead, shot by another African American.

Brainiac:

Other races have individuals graduating from top colleges, law schools and medical schools in their early teens.

We're light-years ahead of you, and thanks to our interest in this area, we will be increasing the divide. Stick to basketball.

Hopkins needed the public relations. Henrietta Lacks is over the news--she just never goes away, does she?

The person who created this thread isn't AA! We aren't taking credit for this Nigerian's accomplishments.

Pathetic is the sheer amount of non-AAs on our forum; They outnumber the AAs who post here.

This is not a surprise. In America, Black immigrants especially Africans run circles around Black Americans in Education and achievements.

A lot of studies show that.

"Embrace" does not have the same meaning as "taking credit". Don't you have a dictionary?

Thats no where near the truth. And one thing non-AAs won't admit is that thats the only segment of AAs they pay attention too.
