Sports Cultural Transmission Of Africans In Mzantsi
The Destruction Of Cultural Transmission Ways And Means Of Africans In South Africa(Mzantsi)As an African people, all round the globe, for more than 2000 years, we have faced oppression, depression and repression, and these today have intensified immensely. So that, at this point, we begin to note that there has been broken, into many pieces, in many places, how we transmit our cultures from one generation to the next
So, that, we should then take note that the mission and quality of an African controlled socialization process is more than a basic response to oppression. It is in fact, if one can imagine it and get to know about it, fundamentally a path to promoting a healthy individual and overall collective development, prosperity and well being meanwhile it will aid in preventing cultural genocide. This the reader will come across in the part that deals with culture, music and dance below in this Hub.
It is now well known and solidly established fact that Africa is the mother of all human civilization. Africa is also a land where the actual and very foundations in ‘socialization practices’ were founded and laid; and through this grounded format, it influenced all the cultures the world over. The whole world, every nation and all its peoples, if one were to consult the relevant historical data, travelled to Africa and they found African fully functioning cultures, who were in charge and control of their own destinies and Nations.
But it is the mission of the outsiders that was bent and intent on stealing the natural resources and/or people, took control of their hosts lands and went on to control and dominate its people: thus we witnesses the advent of slavery and colonization in a scale not know in human memory and history.
Even today, as of writing of this piece, it is still the mission of the descendants of these ‘foreigners’ whose intentions is to continue these relations of dominance and subservience we are now aware of. We should make note that Africa had things other people and nations need, and all of them were not prepared to pay for that.
It is also the mission and aim of these past and present colonizers to falsely justify these inhumane behavior foisted upon Africans, and they did this by launching a serious and very constant and slanderous propaganda campaigns. It is though such propaganda campaigns that they painted a picture of All Africans as ‘culture less,’ ‘ignorant, backward’ and ‘evil people’.
Through diverse International codes, these detractors of African people, utilized messages and signals/memes and zines, to produce the intended and same result they were propagating, from the past to the present. This move by the colonizers/imperialists, was to ensure the full and complete degradation total enslavement of Africans globally.
So that, when we look much closely at these shenanigans of the oppressors of Africans, their goal was and is still to encourage all Africans, to resist everything and anything Africa, and effort was made to dissuade Africans never to speak out about Imperialism of Europe, Europe and other parts Oppressive world, against Africans globally.
Discourse and active organization strategies intended to lead African people to command their own socialization process, must build and improved upon distinct African indigenous traditions. There’s a lot of documentation and oral histories that outline the vast traditions which were and still a way of life of our African ancestors/ourselves and these they had passed down throughout various generations.
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.
African people continue to consistently to face the wars against their cultures, and they ought not to surrender or ignore/neglect their vision of who they are as a people. This will help point out to and lead the African people onto to those markers and marked points and maps of the steps that lead to a reclamation of their African power and authenticity/autonomy and freedom as a people.
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.
By the time Africans gained some paltry form of freedom and were poised to reclaim their traditional practices and culture/history, the anti Africa propaganda went into full swing and was enforced with alarming brutality; this propaganda machines of the colonial imperialists had by then succeeded in enforcing a mental disengagement between Africans and anything Africa. The long term and lingering effects has created, today, what we see as mental and social confusion which has so far prevented Africans from being themselves. These after effects were designed and put in place making it impossible for African people to unite and achieve authentic and autonomous freedom. The Aim of this Hub is to re orientate that schism and falsity. What these are, critically looking them, are just bellicose knee jerk reactions and rants on our part, pretending to be caring and talking about our problems and plights.
Well, in so far as the diatribes are concerned, it seems like a conscious people are engaged in a positive palaver, but that would be far from the truth. Our cream of the crop is rushing pell mell into being accepted and seen as being European, and not African This is a fact, and I can argue with anyone’s contrary point of view on this matter. Wilson in the video below addresses why this is the case with us, in Mzantsi and in the US and Other parts of the African Diaspora
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.
We have become adept at scoffing and dismissing our cultural, linguistic, musical and other heritages that make us Africans of South Africa, and have become lackeys of other peoples around the world. We are a confused, scared and dumbed down peoples. We of Mzantsi, have no sense nor direction of what is happening. We are all filled with uncertainties, distrust, and have to live with an irresponsible petty bourgeoisie which is very opportunistic.
They have a tendency to enquire as to ones status in our meetings in any situation, what kind of car one drives, where does one live, or was edumacated, wear western contemporary fashion, smudge ourselves with foreign perfumes, jewelry(which we now put on our teeth, too), live in shameless opulence, and strive hard to maintain that type of status quo and wealth acquirement to our dissatisfaction and desire to be accepted as Europeans, not African.
Today, because we have become very good at rejecting our culture, we have become an illiterate nation, with a miseducated youth and totally blank adult population. The matric results are one indicator of this charge. We are becoming sick nowadays, most of us suffering from flues, pneumonia, dysentery, diarrhea, in the middle and heat of the summer.
We do not control our water (by we, I mean the army of the poor consumers of this drinking water). We are inept in all what we do. We depend on nepotism, cronyism, which has been shepherded by a cabal of a motley crew of thugs posing as our government and leaders.
The people that are supposedly being put in position of national social responsibilities are ignorant, inept, dysfunctional, unknowing, arrogant, and pilfering upon the public coffers; corruption is rampant; rape and murder are chronic in our communities; Alcoholism is a pandemic disease; drug abuse and proliferation has becoming the new normal in our midst.
Churches are fleecing their parishioners; the much touted and oft abused concept of Ubuntu is no more existent in our divided and shattered African collectives; our children do not even know our part of African history, customs, cultures, traditions languages and other sacred rites and their practices; and we, the present elderly, are not even helping them, nor we ourselves are functionally capable of capturing our culture, customs, traditions and the whole bit.
People are scared of critiquing the ANC; the ANC has arrogantly abrogated to itself all powers and is distorting and making its own polity ignorant and uneducated so’s to rule over us effectively. They, the present government, wants us to accept that all these social malaise are because we are now experiencing a new democracy, newly found freedoms, in the face of all that they, our present leaders are doing all that is wrong. No one wants to be told that we are a failure and are being wiped out of the face of our land in all aspects of our decrepit existential reality.
"The Black race will be exterminated if it does not build a Black(African) Superpower in Africa by the end of this Century."Reading up on Wilson is an eye opener for us, if we will ever have the gall and guts to face our weakened state of being. Wilson writes:
" The way we think, the way we behave, helps to create the kinds of victimization from which we suffer. The oppressive configuration the White man has assumed in relationship to the African man is in good part the result of the fact that we have permitted ourselves to remain in complementary subordinate configuration conducive to his oppressive designs. "The White man Cannot Be What He Is unless We Are What We Are As A People".
"And one way of transforming the White man is through ‘self transformation’. "He cannot be what he is if we are not what we are".
