The search for the ultimate beauty product that can delay aging never seems to end. The 58-year-old Mr. Moosa is a rarity these days—someone of Indian descent involved in South African soccer. When he broke onto the scene in the early 1970s, Mr. Moosa played in a separate league for “coloreds” and Indians. Because of his ball-handling skills and light complexion, he was recruited to join a white team. After his first game, though, league administrators took a closer look at the person playing under the name Arthur Williams. They expelled him. For us to recognize ourselves, is to take some serious lessons from the short histories, dance and music videos with the cultural dress in full display to be of one people, Us. We are not tribes nor have we ever been tribes, but we were indoctrinated by Apartheid to think and refer to ourselves as tribes-we helped the regime ‘disappear’ ourselves, nation and culture by using the jargon from the Master in talking and referring to ourselves and our culture in those demeaning and dehumanizing terms without us being aware what we are really doing to ourselves. One cannot listen to the cultural musical videos, the short history and observe the cultural performances with the jaundiced eye of our former oppressor and detractors. Still, a ray of hope emerged with the stabilization of the Brazilian currency and the rapid decline of inflation in the mid-1990s. Estimates suggest that some nineteen million Brazilians moved from the working poor to the lower middle class. For the first time these people had money to spend on consumer goods; those who remained poor also benefitted from stable prices and were better able to afford staples such as meat, chicken, eggs, and beans. It is these traditions that African chroniclers have to critique, and if a need arises, work had on improving them so that they square up neatly with contemporary challenges that are facing African people globally, and south Africa in particular. Understanding our own indigenous socialization practices will enable and help us to have a clarity of purpose and a better vision to move forward into the future as a united African Family. Traditionally, varied rituals address every occasion in African traditional life. The rituals provide individuals with an opportunity to stand before the community for naming ceremonies, enstoolment ceremonies, initiation rites, harvest festivals and other times to link and collectively give thanks to god, the ancestors, and nature. These rituals, customs and traditions, and the purposes for them, are common in Africa and the Diaspora. They provide an opportunity to promote community unity, to outline purpose and expectations, to reinforce the positive aspects of the culture, and to acknowledge the power of the Creator-as envisioned and conceived by the African people.
Alternatively, if your face cannot stand water and soap, try a mild cleanser making sure it is free from harmful properties. When you wash your body do so as gently as you clean your face.

No one who underwent the Grind of Grand Apartheid does not know that Africans in South Africa as a people have undergone all what Cabral so clearly states. What went on for the Africans is that they know what happened to their struggle, It is the duty of ALL South Africans to put san end to all injustices, miseries and suffering- If other ethnic groups are not willing to participate in clearing all wrongs under the umbrella of African ‘Ubuntu’, there is no reason why Africans should not do it for themselves. As a people we must put guarantees for the children born in our land today and tomorrow a certainty that no barrier or wall should be put in their way; As African people of South Africa, we must see to it that they go forward according to their capacities; Our children must no be encouraged to envy other peoples cultures morals and mores at the expense of their own homegrown culture, customs, traditions, languages, rites and practices. Africans in South Africa must and have to constantly improve the lot of their people and land, and this must serve the interests of the Africans in South Africa; and once these are secured, known, owned, controlled and disseminated by African’s, as they see fit. The Struggle for Africans of South Africa today is how can they create a cohesive African collective to begin to fix the governance of their lot according to their will. Debate now centers on how to revive the same broad participation in a new era. That elite soccer is now largely confined to black townships needs to change, says Ephraim “Shakes” Mashaba, who is South Africa’s newly appointed “Under 23” head coach and also a former apartheid-era soccer star. “What we have to deal with is a question of attitudes. It’s time to open the doors,” he says.
In citing this piece by Chancellor Williams, I am also saying that this applied in many ways to the culture of African South Africans, as I have demonstrated in the Hub prior to this one “South African Culture, Customs and Practices Writ Large: Re-Morphed Cultural Renaissance against Dysfuncritional Existence”, by talking extensively about the Basotho, Swazis, Xhosas, Zulus, Pedis and Vendas in regards to their cultures, customs, traditions and practices, that, they are one, and bear a lot in common that if looked at in that way, form a nation with a cultural, customary, traditional mosaic in a myriad and diverse setting, but common and the same in its manifestations, and embedded within the African Society core and psyche. So that, as we use this media which collates our information and sells it to the highest bidders to do as they please with our profiles, we cannot then allow ourselves to curtail our meagre freedoms to achieve narrow ends. The problem Facebook spooks had against me was that I was posting original articles written on and about African history from an African perspective. This did not endear me to the Facebook police and the very people I was writing the history for. Most jeans come in distressed styles and various cuts. From everything from bell bottoms for the ladies, which includes a variety of different shades and styles. You can purchase a distressed style, as well as plain denim. You can match jeans to just about any style or look, that’s the main reason that jeans have already become so popular. Most men or women like to wear collared going out shirts with tight jeans, although some like to match it with a tight shirt as well. Once you hit that proper style you’ll be rocking in no time. Do keep in mind though that skinny and jeans really look best for those that have a good body and work out. You’d have better luck hitting the millionaire then fitting into slim jeans, also it will really really stupid. I recently read a newspaper reportage in the Press that about 43% of African South African do not know anything about their Bill of Rights in their country. I have gone around and asked people at random what do they know about Their Bill Of Rights enshrined into their Constitution. Nearly all of the respondents to my unscientific (sic) probing, did not have a clue what I am talking about. Many of us are Afraid when they look at the mirror and see what’s starring them back. A lot of us use the examples of Black children ‘liking’ White Dolls rather than Black ones, but we have never examined ourselves as grown-ups how we still carry on the ‘liking’ of Imperial Cultural values, languages, behaviors, mannerism, and these same people, push back, very hard, on many of the posts I post here on my Timeline, and throughout FB-in many ways.
“White people now despise Africans of South Africa, not because they need to reinforce their attitude to justify their position of privilege, but simply because they actually believe that “Black” is inferior and bad. This is the basis upon which Whites are working in South Africa, and it is what makes South Africa a racist society. The racism we meet does not only exist on an individual basis; it is also institutionalized to male it look like the South African way of life. Yet, the same people who perceive and write about these differences are perplexed by the “oneness” of these cultures, the interaction they had maintained with each each other, form antiquity and other interrelated and same customs, languages, cultures, customs and teaditions. Linguistic and biological evidence does point to the fact that the Khoi lived in Natal as well as the eastern Cape; what is not further elaborated upon is the intermixture and intermarriage and assimilation of the Khoi into the systems of the Xhosas, Pedis, Basothos and so forth that in effect makes the superficially discussed ‘differences’ amongst them, bogus and misleading. Almost all the names on this manuscript map are Portuguese, proving that up to 1682, a period of more than 250 years since the first discovery of south-east Africa, neither Dutch, nor French, nor English, had added much to the geography of the country. In Maps of 1670, however, the Dutch colored South Africa as their own. They may be supposed to have done this for two reason, the first being their actual occupation of the Cape in 1652, an occupation which, as we know, they considered to give them first claims to the whole of the Hinterland, and to the coasts and regions of Natal(Hakluyt). Brazil also has a tradition of folk literature that is little known abroad. The literature de cordel (literally, literature on a string)’”derived from the custom of displaying booklets of verse by hanging them from a thin string or cordel’” is a form of rhymed verse still popular in the Northeast interior. In the region with the country’s highest illiteracy rate, these verses disseminate news and carry on cultural traditions. The cordel singer, who travels from town to town performing his verses to the accompaniment of a guitar or accordion, writes the verses, composes the melody, prints the lyrics in a booklet’”which he also sells’”and may even illustrate the work with his own woodcuts or sketches. 1906 The All-White South African soccer team tours South America.Soccer case back in Court.
