When it comes to having beautiful skin, it does not have to cost you a fortune in order to purchase all of those chemicals to treat it. There are many different beauty products that you can purchase for your skin, but those skin products are not all natural. “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 Mzantsi… 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. He had refused to give an undertaking to the Minister of the Interior that he would do nothing to harm South African sport at the Frankfurt meeting. He said he considered the issue of a conditional passport to be blackmail.”14 October, The Minister of Sport, Dr. Piet Koornhof, says in the House of Assembly that the Government’s aim is to move away from discrimination in sport, disclosing that a champion of champions” soccer tournament would be held, probably in February: White and non-White clubs could take part”. Further, he invites the major cricketing bodies for round table talks on their problems. He confirms that a Black boxer would meet a White boxer for the South African championship. Under specific questioning, he replied that the Coloured Proteas could play against the Rugby Springboks any time.6 November, The executive committee of the International Football Federation (FIFA) rejects an Ethiopian proposal to expel South Africa. It decides that the matter can be dealt with only at the next congress, during the Olympic Games in Montreal,in 1976. South Africa remains suspended, meaning that foreign players, not teams, can still be imported to South Africa. FIFA decides to send a delegation to South Africa early in 1975 to investigate conditions.

In conclusion, there are many aspects of Welsh life that can be identified as part of the culture of the country. Some of these are unique to Wales, such as the language, costume, songs and emblems. Others such as the popularity of drinking hot tea and the tradition of castle building are shared with the other countries that make up the British Isles and can be identified with by their populations. Other options for men who are embracing their downtime are white Oxford shirts, pinstripe shirts, or blue gingham shirts. Sport jerseys, generally don’t generate style points, unless you are heading to a game. Rugby shirts are considered stylish and have the bonus of being comfortable and structured enough to wear almost anywhere. Shirts should be worn fitted, when they are too loose, they pass the comfort realm and begin to dip into the under-dressed area. They(the oppressors) evolved systems of subjugation listed above are the ones that were used and applied to aggressively attack and carry out a Total Cultural War African history, culture and its people relentlessly. As this was taking place, the effects on Africans was monumental. “The task of reclaiming even a portion of the best indigenous socialization practices in Africa is enormous. The continent of Africa is some 11,608,000 square miles; twenty percent of the earths land. Over 853.6 million(Censors as of July 29, 2012), African people populate the continent. Add Africans in the diaspora and that brings the total of Africans in the world to more than a billion and a half. Africans speak at least 1000 different languages, practice a variety of rituals and traditions, and foster distinct cultures. On the other hand there were artists who openly sided with the opposition and produced works that were used to mobilize people. Some of these artists produced work that required a sophisticated understanding of the artists’ use of references to other works of art like Dumile Feni’s ‘African Guernica’ (Figure 1). In all earnestness, we have lost our bearings, moorings and geographical campus in life. We are under great and grand delusions of grandeur, that if one were to accumulate more money, and sacrifice ones soul and human beingness(Culture, Customs, etc), that does not matter, but money does. We have dug ourselves, we Africans of South Africa, into a hole that we cannot climb out of. We glorify, cherish, and work very hard to be a poor copies of other cultures and are strung-up on material wealth and technological gadgets and nothing more.

This is a style that originated in the 80s ( as part of the grunge music) with a heavy emphasis on layering and oversized silhouettes with a casual nonchalant attitude. The staples of this style include leather jackets, flannel shirts, metallic jackets, ripped denim, crop tops, cool slogan t-shirts, combat boots, fishnet stockings, beanies, mom jeans, and slouchy sweaters. Baggy, torn and messy clothes are constants in this working-class fashion style. Of all the beauty skin care tips for staying young, one of the most important involves using sun protection. Ideally, you should stay out of the sun as much as possible – this includes tanning. If you cannot avoid going out, make sure that you wear plenty of sunscreen. Many beauty skin care products are now starting to include minimal sun protection elements in them to make this easier. “In war, the songs reassured those who were scared, highlighted the determinate of the regiment to win a particular encounter and made much more urgent to the need to settle the score; in suffering, as in the case of AfricanAmerican slaves. At work, the binding rhythm makes everybody brush off the burden and hence Africans can continue for hours on end because of this added energy. This is a fashion style that originated among the British working class and features football t-shirts, anoraks, loafers – the casual dressing styles of middle-class boys and girls. Where Heels if You Can Although they are not right for every occasion or activity, heels always make your feet look smaller. Heels tend to break up the long, straight line of your foot that flat shoes only emphasize. Not only that, they make your legs appear longer and more toned. And don’t worry, heels don’t have to be stilettos to accomplish this. Wedge heels and shorter chunkier heels work just as well as 4-inch spikes. Heels look good with a large variety of clothing, too. Even a nice pair of jeans takes on a little edge of sophistication when teemed with a good looking pair of heels. Today, white players face obstacles if they want to stick with soccer, according to Matthew Booth, the lone white member of South Africa’s national soccer team. The black-owned professional teams haven’t effectively reached out beyond their support base, he says, while mostly white schools pressure students into playing rugby and cricket. However, given that cultures are now easily “transferred” from one place to another, clearly distinguishing one culture from another through clothing has become a little more difficult. But in the past, the way people dressed was highly reflective of their own specific culture and other aspects of their way of life. This was especially true in colonial America.
