Yesterday, it was a heritage day and some white people sees it as a Braai day because they want to run away from being alienated as foreigners in South Africa. White people don't feel comfortable about this thing of labeling, they want all of us to exist as one without labels so that they can push their Eurocentric agendas.
When white folks arrived in South Africa, they only found four tribes in South Africa, Basotho, Batswetla, AmaNguni and Tsonga tribe. So. They decided to further divided these tribes because the more people are divided it is easier to conquer them. A kingdom that is divided shalt not stand. They decided to divided Nguni people into Xhosa, Zulu, Ndebele and the hate among black South Africans became more and more deeper.
Ask yourself why we got surnames like Mthembu in Zulu, Xhosa, Ndebele. Zulu, Xhosa, Ndebele should be just dialect not tribes. It is very important to know yourself. Zulu people were named after Shaka Zulu.
Since the arrival of Europeans in our shores, Eurocentric have superseded our Africanicity.
