Jewelry and women are truly two words that cannot be separated. Our way of life is just as good as any, and will not sound culturally chauvinistic about the issue, but we are a viable and live culture that is just as powerful as any, and full of many things as anyone on the planet earth, and that really should tweak something in many of us. By this I mean, opening ourselves to the world, in all aspects and facets, rather that closing in ranks-akin to the ‘laager’ mindset is what I think is more dovetailing with the New Times we live in-wherein we explore new and revolutionary ideas of Nation building and collective upgrading of African National Consciousness techniques and tactics. We are oppressed because we are Black(African, to be more precise- my addition). It does not need to be said that it is the Black people who are poor. Black people are not oppressed as Zulus, Xhosas, Pedis, Tswanas, Coloreds or Indians(as apartheid would have liked the world to believe that Africans are all different as they comprise Ten(10) peoples). Africans must use that very concept to unite themselves and to respond as a cohesive group. Africans must cling to each other with a tenacity that will shock the perpetrators of evil. In spite of, or perhaps because of, all of these crazy beliefs, Korea actually is an amazing country, that you should visit if you ever get the opportunity. The people are warm and friendly, and will go out of their way to makeÂ sure that you have an amazing time and a pleasant stay.

JOHANNESBURGâ€”Jomo Sono, known as the Black Prince of South African soccer, was part of a generation of stars whose skin color barred them from playing for their national team.

Before colonization, Cameroon was a territory of diverse climatic zones populated by a variety of peoples and polities. The Muslim states in the north traded with trans-Saharan merchants and Arabic peoples. The coastal peoples in the south traded with Portuguese and Dutch seafarers beginning in the late fifteenth century. In 1884, Cameroon became a German protectorate (Kamerun). The Germans were defeated by British and French forces in 1916, and the territory was divided between those nations in 1916. In 1922, the French and British zones became League of Nations mandates, with the French controlling over 80 percent of the national territory. Those zones were transformed into United Nations Trusteeships in 1946. The frontier between the French and British zones cut through the territories of several ethnic groups, particularly the BamilÃ©kÃ© and Grassfields peoples of the western highlands. This later served as an impetus for the reunification of those zones at the time of independence. French Cameroon (Cameroun) became independent in 1960, and after a plebiscite in 1961, British Cameroon gained independence. The southern part of the British territory joined the Federal Republic of Cameroon, while the northern part, ethnically united with the Hausa-city states, joined Nigeria. In 1965, Cameroon came under single-party rule. It was renamed the United Republic of Cameroon in 1972 and the Republic of Cameroon in 1984.
