It is a well-known and documented fact that Africans were tortured,killed for practicing their traditional religion, speaking their traditional mother-tongues, using African names, playing their own original music, doing their long time traditional dances, and much,much more. The colonizers worked hard on separating Africans from their traditional spiritual values, family, culture and land; the detractors of Africans made sure that there is a disconnect for African people with a healthy African cultural and historical foundations. Comparison of individualism-collectivism in the American and Khmer cultures. Sepra et al observed that Cambodian culture is predominantly collectivist in nature while American culture is oriented towards individualism. As such, the Khmer people tend to emphasize group identity within which loyalty to the group and group consensus are valued and harmony may be more important to the truth while Americans tend to emphasize identity based on individual characteristics, loyalty one’s one personal goals, and the truth is more important than harmony (p. interpersonal communication). If a guy wants to wear a dress, then he should be able to wear a dress and not care about what people think,â€ said designer Thom Browne. Second, make sure the product contains sufficient concentrations of those beneficial ingredients. Many beauty companies deceive consumers in this manner; they do include natural substances in their products, but in amounts that are simply too small to provide any real benefit. These days, you can find hundreds of conventional moisturizing lotions lining up the skincare shelves in the grocery store. Many of the brands use expensive campaigns to advertise their products and convince unsuspecting consumers of the superiority of their products. However, studies show that most of the lotions available today do not meet consumer expectations – and do not deliver on their promises of healthier-looking skin that is smooth, soft, and free from imperfections. What is more, some of these conventional moisturizing lotions have caused more damage to the skin, such as worsened acne, additional age spots, and color darkening; things that natural face moisturizer will not do. Urban architecture in Brazil owes much to the legacy of Portuguese colonialism. Cities such as Ouro PrÃªto and Rio de Janeiro grew in importance long before industrialization had brought the factory or the automobile to Brazil. These cities, which influenced patterns of urban construction throughout the country, were largely modeled on Portuguese cities. The neighborhoods built during colonial times have narrow streets with continuous building facades that converge on central plazas. These open areas are often the sites of churches or government buildings, constructions imbued with symbolic power by being set off from the solid mass of private dwellings that line the streets.

This widely held belief in Korean and Japanese culture started in the 1920s, and although it is a myth that has been debunked several times since then, it has persisted in its popularity over the years. The Korean theory of blood type and personality can best be compared to the way westerners view zodiac signs. Just as your zodiac sign influences your personality and predicts certain things about your life, so does your blood type in Korea or in Japan. It is not considered to be as far reaching as the zodiac sign, as it really just a commentary on your personality but, there are many books about what the best job is for each blood type, and how different blood types react in different situations and even about how romance works between the blood types and who is the best match for each type.

Bachnik also spoke of Japanese society and argued that it seemed in Japan that the organisation of self was fundamentally linked to the social context. In Japanese society the self is defined through interaction and relationship with others. It is though stated by that â€˜people interacting in context do not reflectâ€ a world already created, but participate in the ongoing dynamic of a social world literally constituted in action’ (Bachnik. 1994; 23). The two ideas of individual and society work in conjunction with each other to create the perceptions, and these factions are constantly changing; â€˜social participants both structure and are structured by their social context’ (Bachnik. 1994; 17). Both society and the self need to support each other to create a fully functioning world in which persons can exist. Both Japanese studies concur that hierarchy and society has to be understood to place importance on the system in which people exist as playing an integral part in defining them.
