P.S ( my World citizen opinion )And for those who believe in the European and American economic model in dealing business on the backs of others, I say down with you.. with your windows and your Macs
........this is as regards your signature. Not to be pedantic or anything, but "Ubuntu" is not an African word.
Quite simply because "African" is not a language; it's not even an ethnic group. It refers to a continent and essentially and unfortunately is nowadays a misnomer for lazily categorizing for a whole race (or races) of people on the basis of their mistakenly presumed common physical appearance (not all 'Africans' are black) and ethnic traits.
It may seem like a small thing to quibble about until you consider the fact that hundreds of millions of those same Africans don't particularly like being lumped together as one homogenous group when the reality is that they're not.
It would be like saying 'muchacho' is a "European" word. Or that 'sayonara' is an "Asian" way of saying goodbye.
I'm sure it sounds exotic enough, and that its exoticism adds to that desired sense of esoterism. But you would do the word as well as the language it came from ( not to mention the people who actually speak it) much more justice and respect if you were more accurate and specific regarding its origin rather than perpetuating silly misconceived generalizations.
just something to think about.....
