As Africans have adopted this alien culture, it has had negative consequences for our mental power, cultural power, physical power, and for the natural resources in the land of our ancestors. In order to survive and keep a minority of people on the planet living a wealthy life, Europeans determined that Africans and the threat of African power had to neutralized at all cost.

Romanticizes cultures: depicts people as mythical or mysterious; something to be, not something that is. In considering these figures, social scientists have long argued that discrimination in Brazil is more a matter of social class than of race. In other words, one’s life chances as a poor person in Brazil are bleak, regardless of one’s color.

Fikile also alludes to the important political debates that were confronting artists at that time. How to address the role of the artist in terms of his or her social responsibility; questions of accountability; and the constant problem of how to overcome the alienation of the black artist from his or her own community. The preceding Hub has covered as much ground as possible in trying to show the Historical, Cultural and Traditional linkages between African South African culture, tradition, custom with that of and as being the same with that of Mapungubwe. When one goes through the historical, cultural, archeological, social, and anthropological literature and records, one is struck by the attempt to sway the fact that African South African Culture is one-and-the-same with that of Mapungubwe, and some want to demonstrate that the only way for historians to understand this is by the way of understanding this culture as if it was really Shona, Zimbabwean, not really South African. Comparison of masculinity-femininity in the American and Khmer cultures. Sepra et al. identified femininity as a Khmer cultural orientation and masculinity as the predominant American cultural orientation. As such, (a) Cambodians tend to place higher value on people, quality of life, and nurturing while Americans place higher value on material possessions, power, and assertiveness; (b) Khmer citizens consider disagreement as impolite and may verbalize â€˜yes’ but act to the contrary while Americans value disagreement as a means to expressing one’s self; and (c) Cambodians value saving a person’s feelings and avoiding confrontation while Americans value the truth over sparing the feelings of another (p. interpersonal communication).
You should only use creams that contain natural ingredients from natural sources. Avocado extract, grape seed oil, manuka honey, vitamin c, water are some of the best anti aging natural ingredients. (15) It is this sharp intelligence that C.L.R. James has applied with tremendous vigour to the historical and cultural problems that have faced Africa and the African diaspora. Perhaps only a small coterie of people would dispute the view that James’ book of 1938, The Black Jacobins, which is a historical masterpiece, is his greatest work. Though the book concerns itself with the events surrounding the Haitian Revolution of 1791-1803, the only successful slave revolt in human history, in an essay of 1976, “George Padmore: Black Marxist Revolutionary”, James indicates that the real reason for writing the book was to show Africans what they would possibly have to do in order to liberate themselves from colonial and imperialist domination. Culture is a historical reality, not an ahistorical, static abstraction. Take for instance the fact that the Europeans, coming anywhere from Europe, they brought their churches with them. They brought their own foods with them and continue to get supplies of specific items from the old country if need be. They brought their own dress with them and could choose to wear it or abandon it as they saw fit. they brought their own marriage customs, their own rites of passage, their won kinship system. The Europeans preserved their old customs for as long as they were needed and gradually modified them as they moved into the main society. While some met opposition for being foreigners, they were not stripped of their foreignness overnight. With opinion so divided you are left confused and wondering what products are best suited to your skin type. You would be right in thinking that with any or all of these problems that your skin is predisposed to some form of sensitivity. What I have been saying above has been drastically captured by Iphi’ Ntombi. they used and fused all the elements of our culture, modern and tradition customary cultures of Africans and gave us what our culture here in Mzantsi can achieve and what we can do with it, should we choose to work hard on developing and manifesting our cultures here in Mzantsi.

Most Western historians have not been willing to admit that there is an African history to be written about, and that this history predate the emergence of Europe by thousands of years. It is not possible for the world to have waited in darkness for the European to bring the light because, for most of the early history of man, the Europeans themselves were darkness. When light of culture came for the first time to the people would later call themselves Europeans, it came from Africa and Middle Eastern Asia. Most history books tend to deny or ignore this fact. By writing that we need to add to the present civilization, does not mean presenting our views as poor copycats of what we still are: colonized, and enslaved and imperialized Africansâ€¦ Instead, some of us fight assiduously very hard to maintain the present and unequal status quo that we all are under forced labor and incarcerated by. Besides Morning Stars, other big rivals of Pirates at the time were Pimville Champions. This intense rivalry related to the two clubs’ positions as the leading side of the two oldest townships in the South West. Pirates’ arrivals in the Sunday League added an edge to this rivalry. But Morning Stars remained the big enemy and the dilemma between the two sides continued. After another â€˜battle’- and another unheeded complaint- Pirates quit the JBFA.

Many African American citizens know little about their extended heritage, nor where they come from in general, only that somehow through the atrocity of slavery that their ancestors were brought at some point to America’s sprawling plantations. Strangely enough though, the sheer extent of the effect that slavery and the subjugation of the African American community has had as a whole on the growth and accomplishments of America as a country have been the subject of debate in recent years. Through works such as the New York Time’s The 1619 projectâ€, many revelations about the true nature between America’s accomplishments and it’s Original Sinâ€ of slavery. Connections from slavery can be drawn from things such as income inequality, its industrial power, and even its electoral system America itself has robbed from the African American peoples more then just their lives and welfare however, it has robbed African Americans of culture, in more then one sense.
Ironically, some evidence suggests that since the 1960s Brazil has been moving toward a system of racial classification similar to that of the United States. That is, the multitude of racial terms commonly used by Brazilians may be giving way to a bifurcate system of branco and negro â€”white and black. Culture is a powerful and ambiguous force because it ambivalently establishes community and autonomy, and collectivity and otherness: it is a strange social force that both breaks down and builds barriers between people and nations. Humans are social creatures of habit and conformity. As often as people like to claim they are autonomous individuals, so much human development and life experience depends on learning and interacting with other people. Comfort is found when someone is immersed within the commonness of their culture, and alienation is felt when they are surrounded by the foreignness of another culture. People crave to be a member of something larger than themselves because this is how people establish their unique individual identity: through their culture. The ways of looking at ourselves cannot be confined to our ‘tribal’ localities, as some would stubbornly intone. It is these groups as seen together that is the main point here. If the Boers wished to divide and conquer us but making us believe that we are different, we might as well begin to see ourselves as a nation of African people, despite all our perceived differences foisted on us by our being Apartheidized. Just as I have had hard time with several Hubs, which were attacked by the White detractors of African people in south Africa, and the other ‘invisible’ and powerful forces which do not approve of my posting our south African culture as it is, nothing held back. I have tried to limit my postage of our women in their cultural gear as much clad as possible. I have caught flack to censoring the ‘appearance’ of our people in their cultural element because there are perverts and other voyeurs who will look at it as the African peoples culture in South Africa. Instead, it has become viewed as the media has seduced it users and followers to view women as sexual object. First you need to know that as we age our skin loses some firmness and elasticity because our body decreases the production of elastin and collagen proteins. However free radical oxidation is also a major cause of skin damage and it is usually our fault because we do not protect our skin correctly and we have very unhealthy lifestyle.
