AFRICAN MUSIC AND AMERICAN MUSIC RESPECT TOWARDS WOMAN

images

I always wondered why in America, will a woman in her right senses smile and take it as a compliment when his man or boyfriend whichever it is, calls her a bitch or a whore. I have seen this happen quiet a lot.

I also wondered why these woman will go around even boosting about being his bitch, not his bitch in fact his bad bitch, how she is a bad bitch and what not.

I also wondered why African females call themselves black queen, beautiful woman, all this beautiful names a woman will call her self in respect of her status in the community. Why an African woman will slap the hell out of a man who will call her a bitch, African woman i mean those who are educated but still not corrupted by the western lives or the so called “3rd world countries”. There is no how the word bitch can be used in a good way. Because they will say “don’t take this wrong you are a bad bitch in a good way”.

Oh really like wtf do u mean.

Well now i see this trend in Africa, you know Africans we like copying whatever Americans are doing, i think we think that is civilization. Our music is so changed. We call ourselves the N word, do u even know what it means.

It is not civilization to be calling women whores, bitches or cursing to make a song. This is the reason why i don’t listen to rap music.

Enjoy your Friday, i am about to go listen to rap music and sip some hot tea.

A very beautiful spirit lady I have ever met. I and this lovely lady we are from the same village, we went to primary school together and at one point I think we were in the same class and we once walked together from school to home.Of course we didn’t live in the same house but it was the same dusty road that we used to go to our houses. We parted ways I guess when we both went to middle school and high school.

image

Then one of the days I was on Facebook idling and looking at one of my mutual friends to see if I know anyone from school or from my past, that they already connected with then I found her thru a mutual friend. And she didn’t remember me but I reminded her and slowly but surely she remembered me because I used to have a big afro and I was always quiet in school. Thats how she got to remember me. LOL BIG AFRO

image

And since then, there has never been a dull moment with her, she is always happy and always positive and inspirational. I connect deeply with her because she knows what I went thru and what she went thru in her life, the struggles and hardships of growing up that made her a strong woman she is today.I can tell her anything without her judging me or telling others what I tell her. She’ll give me her suggestions but doesn’t get mad if I choose my own. When I’m down she’s there to pick me up. When I’m up she’s there to join me in my happiness. She likes me for the person I am and accepts I’m not perfect just as I accept her for being her. I am happy to call her my friend and say happy birthday to her and may God bless her with many more.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY GURRRRLLL

QUOTE OF THE DAY: CULTURE 20/11/2013

image

“It should now be our intention to try to retrieve what we can of our past. We should write our own history books to prove that we did have a past, and that it was a past that was just as worth writing and learning about as any other. We must do this for the simple reason that a nation without a past is a lost nation, and a people without a past is a people without a soul.” Sir Seretse Khama

“A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots.” Marcus Garvey

“A nation’s culture resides in the hearts and in the soul of its people.” Mahatma Gandhi

“Embrace your culture, preserve it, be proud and show it off in the world. We were given different cultures in the world for a reason, I am proud of my culture and will show it off everywhere and anywhere in the world. I am a proud Motswana girl from Maun ” Tebogo Regasegile

47TH INDEPENDENCE FOR BOTSWANA

imageBOTSWANA¬†¬†(Tswana:¬†Lefatshe la Botswana), is a landlocked country¬†located in Southern Africa. We as citizens we refer to ourselves as “Batswana” (singular: Motswana). Formerly the British protectorate of Bechuanaland, Botswana adopted its new name after becoming independent ¬†on 30 September 1966. It has held uninterrupted democratic elections¬†since independence.

Botswana is flat,and is mostly covered by the kalahari desert.It is bordered by South Africa to the south, Namibia to the west and north, Zimbabwe to the north east and Zambia to the north

CLOTHES
Batswana we dress like everyone else in the world trousers/pants, dresses etc just normal clothes,shoes and everything in the fashion industry. I am usually surprised when people ask me if i wore shoes in Africa before or i started wearing shoes in united states. Don’t get me wrong I love walking bare foot in that lovely cold sand after a long day and its not like its every day i do that. Also with clothes we usually wear animal skin made costumes for dancing on special occasions.
FOOD
Our cuisine is very unique speaking as a maun born we have our own dishes which are different from other tribes in Botswana and i wont be found in the other parts of the country, for example my favourite is tswii its not easy to get and to make. Tswii is sort of like a potato and we usually mix it with meat/beef to add flavour to it. i love love tswii.
Even though our cuisine is unique, we share some characteristics with other cuisine of Southern Africa. Example Botswana foods are samp (setampa) and lol i looked for samp everywhere here but i guess they feed it to chickens, pap (phaleche), mopani worms, bogobe jwa legala which is soft porridge cooked with milk than water yummy this is one of my favourite dishes, last but not least madombi (dumblings) which also my favourite i tried making some ūüėČ

A unique to Batswana to includes seswaa a heavily dried,salted mashed up meat, magwinya my favourite too,it is bread that is just similar to funnel cake and made the same way but we make ours into round shapes like in the picture below.
we all eat and make foods from different parts of the world and try to make them into our own cuisine or you might say in this content that its a mash up of traditional food with the modern food, this pizza here is made with mophane worms,i have’nt tried it yet but it is on my to do list yummy. But would you eat it? I DARE YOU LOL

LANGUAGE

The official languages is English and Setswana, Although Setswana is widely spoken across the country, there are some other languages spoken in the country by different tibes e,g bayei, bahambukushu, basubia,kalanga, shekgalagadi etc
 HEALTH
The ministry of health in Botswana is responsible for overseeing the quality and distribution of health care throughout the country. We get free medical help and thats one thing i love and praise my country for,it takes care of its people. when was in the united states my landlord fell and broke her arm she had to make an arm cast because she couldn’t afford to pay for it as she didnt have insurance as in Botswana she could have just got it for free. Sometimes it really annoys me when i see people complain and not appreciate what they have.
 

HIV/AIDS

Like elsewhere in Sub-Saharan Africa we Batswana we are also affected and infected by HIV/AIDS. My qovernment began a comprehensive program involving free generic anti-retroviral drugs as well as information campains designed to stop the spread of the virus. People are also given free condoms at hospitals and clinics, and testing for HIV/AIDS is free. All this i am proud to say started under the leadership of our third president Festus Gontebanye Mogae.
FUN FACTS ABOUT BOTSWANA
1.Botswana has the largest population of elephants in Africa and 17% of the country has been set aside as a National Parks and Game Reserves.
2. The national animal is the Zebra, Which is where the national soccer team got their name. What is the national animal in your country?
The national soccer team, we are not as good as Brazil but still we love the team and our nation pride and I support it 100%.
 
THE FLAG
 

  The colors of the flag carry cultural,political and regional meanings.The light blue represents water specifically,in its form of rain as it is a prcious resource in Botswana, We really value rain as we suffers from frequent droughts due to the dry climate of the Kalahari Desert.

The black and white frame has two meanings. Firstly, they symbolize the harmony and cooperation between the people o different races who live in Botswana, as well as racial diversity of the country. Furthermore, they represent the national animal the zebra.
