It is perhaps presumptuous to all it “acculturation” because this term implies a fusion of different cultures. In our case, this fusion has been extremely one-sided. The two major cultures that met and “fused” were the African culture and the Anglo-Boer culture. Whereas the African culture was ‘unsophisticated’ and ‘simple,’ the Anglo-boer culture had all the trappings of a colonialist culture, and therefore was heavily equipped for conquest. Both partners make it a point not to force his or her beliefs and values onto the other, no matter the upbringing and culture. Instead there is acceptance and understanding of each other’s cultural practices and eccentricities. This also gives room to both people to be who they are rather than forcing each other to change into something they are not. The words used by Africans in South Africa are terms like “Amadlozi”, Badimo and so forth for the word Kra, because, If one were to read the excerpt above to Africans in South Africa, they would put names and meanings that they are familiar with onto the way of bringing up youth and socializing young adults and their elders within the dictates of their customs, traditions, cultures and practices. Because of Apartheid, which started with Van Riebeeck, all the way to Botha and De Klerk, and the policy of “Total Onslaught” on Africans and their very existence, their languages, and the meanings which their languages preserved their cultures, they still retained a highly civilized scheme of political and social organization.

We know that being in modernity and becoming technophiles is in keeping up with the times-its gizmos and metadata streams. In all endeavors of man’s existence here on earth, the aim has been more or less to better one’s lot. I have collected a smidgen of our photographs of all the 11(eleven) nations of Mzantsi. I choose to see ourselves as a collectives of nations that are part of one Untied Nation of Mzantsi. for us to even think along these terms is a stretch for many of us. Cultural education and transmission should take place in ever lesson or information we impart to ourselves. We are One People, and that is a fact many will have a tough time trying to dislodge. So I have carefully chosen those images that are positive, not to try and create some sensationalism, but to put forth a positive and good image of ourselves as the Africans of South Africa.

Irish Republicans are opposed to the Queen visiting the Republic of Ireland because they perceive the British monarchy as their traditional enemy, particularly in the monarch’s role as head of the British Armed forces. In times gone past, the British army has killed both paramilitaries and civilians in Ireland in an attempt to oppose the Irish fight for independence. Although in the south of Ireland those events happened nearly 100 years ago, in Northern Ireland memories are more recent and more raw – innocent civilians were shot dead on the streets by British solidiers in the 1970s, and the communities where these events happened have not forgotten it.

What Bafana Bafana achieved on home soil, in distant Abidjan, Cote d’Ivoire. On 16 December 1995, Orlando Pirates were crowned champions of Africa after recording an entirely unexpected 1-0 win away to the might ASEC Mimosas.

While many people are exposed to all sorts of propaganda via television, radio, and to all sort of propaganda via television, radio, newspapers, few of us have been exposed to the wisdom of elders right in our own communities; let alone the wisdom of those who practiced our best traditions We have lost our understanding of the indispensable role that control of the socialization plays in our survival and destiny and thus, we have failed to ensure proper intergenerational cultural transmission.

One should seek independence from those upon whom one feel permanently dependent, for that would be an act of suicide. Also, if the Boers have their own histories and stories, no one tell them what to say or not what to write. Who then, gives them the power over us, the ability they abrogate to themselves telling us what not to say, that we should now be talking about the present and the future. Well, How can we, as African people(and this is important) talk about the present and fort about the past. Even the Jews have better and enough sense to recognize that what happened to them in the past millennia, and the Hitler nightmare, they have clearly told the world that: “We shall Not forget”. Well, why is it important to some people of different culture to come and tell us not to talk about our past because it is gone.
