Huge thanks to Liberia Positives on instagram for helping with this video. (Check them out! @libpositives) I honestly think I might consider going here. No joke. I might have to raise money by doing some more sponsorships and merch sales but it might be worth it..... #LIBERIA

Liberia colonized by African Americans? If so where did they send the colonized money, America? As colonizers usually send their money somewhere
Faith Richards (5 months ago)
Maybe you guys should’ve had someone who was actually Liberian help you with pronunciation and actual dialect because some things weren’t actually right. Also, we do not call ourselves “little America” and would prefer to not even be associated with that as we are African. Good video though.

Yet they rather teach you Shakespeare and other Ancient Greek history in school instead of some real information like this. I’m from LiB and never heard a mention of Liberia in American schooling from 3rd grade up to graduation. Not even in hbcu’s in college.

Correction: Liberia is NOT the only African state that gained independence without major revolt. Tanzania did that too (also, never had a civil war)

Btw they never fought back against European forces. So like they were just decided on being left. Ethiopia actually didn’t get colonised but I still love you.

The US (and Liberia) doesn't use the Imperial system. They use the US Customary System. The Imperial System describe British traditional weights and measures.

The second largest city in Liberia now is Ganta, located in Nimba County. And it is the second busier city with the second largest financial activities, with five commercial Banks.

This sounds good, it's hard to think allies of Liberia would be spoken of without the mention of Nigeria, who had about the highest no of men in peace keeping, lost a number, helped in restoring democracy, hosts camps for refugees and is still home to many Liberians. Maybe these are not enough deeds to consider one a friend. Hence Patrick Sawyer felt better goming to Nigeria with Ebola than the US where 😉 he is a citizen.

The irony of being called a coloniser
Fun fact: if this series were to go by the Shavian alphabetical order, then Pakistan (·𐑐𐑨𐑒𐑦𐑕𐑑𐑨𐑯) would be first, and Iran (·𐑽𐑭𐑯) would be last. However, if Yugoslavia (·𐑿𐑜𐑩𐑕𐑤𐑭𐑝𐑾) were still around, it would come in last, since 𐑿 ("yew") is the last letter in the Shavian alphabet.

ethiopia and liberia were colonized. how long does it otherwise take to be called colonized? 6 years? 8 years? 100 years? the only reason ethiopia wasnt colonized before ww two is because it helped the british to colonize its neighbours

Muslim religion I meant.
Evelyn Teah (1 month ago)
The Dan tribe (commonly known as gio), the Mano tribe and the Gbi tribe are from Nimba county, and has absolutely nothing to do with Muslim region. The Mandingo tribe has no country in Liberia that we the Liberian know of, they are found in every county in Liberia. Just so you know, they are not from Nimba county.

The colonization of Ethiopia by Italy is not a secondary fact. In fact, because of that, Italy was expelled from the League of Nations, and France and the UK closed their relationship with Italy (because Italy had used illegal gas to conquer Ethiopia...I wonder if Uk and France used flowers or nice words to conquer Senegal, kenya, India and their other colonies...) Because of that, in order not to be totally isolated, Italy became the first partner of the German Nazi, and you know the rest of the story...

Wow! What an outstanding presentation, so much details about Liberia that are educative. As a Liberian, I just have to say thank you and the team on this presentation. Priceless work this is, not to mention your brains.

For those who haven't read about the liberian civil war it was basically hell on earth. Literally Generals and soilders killing and eating each other for shamanic powers. They have videos of a 13 year old. Boy yelling that he killed a liberian General and was going to eat his heart.

You should've also mentioned that the current president (George Weah) was known as one of the best soccer/football players of all time that played in big European teams. He also has a son that plays for the United States national team and plays for Paris Saint-Germain (Timothy Weah)
