With the current trend being to a lot of unisex clothing styles what we wear on our feet is sure to come to question. On the other hand common creams use chemical ingredients and synthetic substances that are not healthy for your skin like parabens, petrolatum, alcohol, fragrances and mineral oil. We acquire power if we know something and or everything about our cultures, etc. When we begin to learn and have a sense and more concrete knowledge about our culture, by looking it as it in it its whole wholesomeness(Holistically), we begin to understand, see and recognize, and observe more similarities in dancing styles, hand-clapping, voicing, circle-formations, and half moon patterns crisscrossing lines, snake-like, and choreographic back and forth movements in-sync and patterned precisely, with a flurry and changing shapes, and forms on and of their same bright and energetic colors, Polyrhythmic syncopated sounds, explosiveness, and rhythm of all the 11(eleven) African people as one unified and diverse, variegated and one common national entity. Bantu Biko knew that our culture was a ‘conscious culture,’ and that, if it was to be in the orb of Technologies and machines, it might spinout of control. So far, we have learned the other way round. We forgot all about culture and dove head-first into the emerging and merging technologies. What then happened is that, our culture was and is still well-suited for the present technology, but we, whose culture it is, do not know or have forgotten a lot about our own cultures, traditions, custom, history, music traditional dress, music, and dances. I am extending this discourse in this part of the Hub, for if you read the first Hub, “South African Culture, Customs and Practices writ-large: Re-Morphed Cultural Renaissance against Dysfunctional Existence”, the reader will notice that in it when I was giviing the narrative of a culture as it was told by those who live it; I used, in most cases, words, and sentences, where possible, of the African peoples of South Africa to give the texture, the color, the taste, the audio and the pronunciation along with accents, deflections, inflections and meaning as to how and why these words were used by them and are still being used and is the lingua franca of Africans in South africa, and in the process be creating a much more meaningful and deeper understanding about the culture of the 10(ten) peoples: (Africans of Mzantsi- African South Africans). How to get that power to the people is a matter of tactics and strategies- No one has the right to tell the masses what and how to think; what and how to write down ideas- there should be a free flowing of ideas and the ideals of free speech should be maintained and practiced, literary. In the flow of information and its dissemination, we need to the very clear about why and how we are going to do that. People are not stupid, they are the most innovative, intelligent and, along with them, I dislike tyrants, people who know it all, and those who cite thought, action and lifestyle of other people to the masses-avoiding all about the masses and their historical information and material culture.
“We must study our African indigenous traditions in order to understand and to evaluate our cultural, situation now. Many of us remain African at a deep structural level. A study of our traditions will reveal that they rival any tradition past or present, and that we have valid options for world view, values and practices, which are suitable for us today, with appropriate modification. Thus in South Africa now it is very expensive to be poor. It is the poor people who stay further from town and therefore have to spend more money on transport to come to work for the White people; it is the poor people who use uneconomic and inconvenient fuel like Parafin and coal because of the refusal of the White man to install electricity in Black areas(Today they use paraffin because it is now sold and those who cannot afford it use the fuel to cook and warm up. The Apartheid goons did a good job of destroying so much information when the ANC was taking over, that I have begun my own way of gathering all types of images about Africans here in Mzantsiâ€¦ I have, as I stated early, begun collating cultural photos. I have not yet gotten to the fashionistas of Mzantsi, as yet. The images of the greats you talk about from Frederick Douglas to everybody in-between, is the same here. I once talked about Mpanza, and if you check out his photo, even riding his horse, he was immaculately dressed. So that, what I am saying to you is that, we, under Apartheid suffered a distorted, disfigured and ugly image about ourselves bandied by the White intelligentsia. 1974 A Whites-only team defeats a Blacks-only team (2-0) in the Embassy Multinational Series at the Rand Stadium.3 June, Mr. Norman Middleton, president of the South African Soccer Federation, is refused a passport to attend a meeting of the International Football Federation (FINA) in Frankfurt on 11 June.

Away from undertaking such a therapeutic role, Emma looks after her wellbeing in the simplest of ways. Toast makes me feel comfortable, with peanut butter and a hefty bit of Lurpak,â€ she says. And, therein lies the power of Emma, just like Diana, she is relatable. 1966 The anti-racist SASL (South African Soccer League) folds due to lack of playing grounds. Many still need the affirmation of their white contemporaries to be writers or whateverâ€¦ We have these types of White authorities who dictate to our African elite, and the African bourgeoisie(and they are called so today in south Africa), are too eager and ready to please and comply with the dictates of their Masters-and be accepted as being the same as the Master-even if they will remain the underdogs.
