Oyinbo People Just Discovered Chewing Stick (Miswak), Now They want To Call It ‘Twig Brush’

March 9, 2017

This is a chewing stick, often referred to as Miswak by Muslims- and it has been in existence since forever.

But you see, Oyinbo people recently discovered the Miswak and are now calling it ‘The Twig Brush’.

They even want to teach us how to use the chewing stick that has existed over one thousand years ago. Just watch this video.

You can watch the full ad here.

And some people will still call Muslims terrorists even after renaming the Miswak, na wa o!

Just like when they suddenly discovered braids and cornrows- renaming them ‘boxer braids’.

White people, when they ‘discover’ things that have existed even before they were born.

How white people steal people’s cultures after discriminating against them.

Can they just leave people’s cultures alone and stop ‘inventing’ things up and down? What do you think about this? Share your thoughts in the comments section.
