BLACK IN ASIA

Thailand

The Mani people are the original homo sapiens that travelled from Africa and settled in Thailand. They are the original negaritos who moved with other Africans like Andamanese of India, Aetas of Philippines,Semangs of Malaysia  to their present  residence in Thailand. They were there before the other ethnic groups came to form the Thai kingdom. Anthropological studies has revealed that the Thai Mani and Malaysian Semang were the first modern humans to enter the Malay peninsula. They remarked that "the original people of the Malay Peninsular that about 4,500 years ago the Proto-Malays moved south from the Yunnan province area of China into Southeast Asia where they met the Negritos who, for a long time, may have been the only modern humans to live in this area" 

The name Mani is of Mon-Khmer origin and means “human being,” and they speak Tonga language. The Mani or “forest people” as other Thai people call them lives in  the jungles of southern Thailand, in the Banthad Mountain Chain and around the Malaysian border in the provinces of Trang, Phatthalung and Satun.  They are facing extinction and currently their total population is about 300. The Banthad Mountain chain became a base area for communist insurgents during the 1970s and thus a battle ground between communist guerillas and Thai government forces. Especially during the years of 1975-1977, the insurgents were battered in ground and air attacks. The Mani suffered terribly during this war with government forces frequently mistaking the smoke of Mani camp fires for insurgent activity. Those living in Trang and Phatthalung provinces had to move to the sanctuary of Thoungwan district in Satun province.

The Philippines

 The Aetas  are the aborigines of the Philippines who were called negritos by the Spaniards at the time of their reign in the Philippines because of their darker skin color. It is the tribe inhabiting the eastern parts of Luzon and called in different names: Agta, Ita, Ati, or Aeta. About 20,000 of them are spread throughout the country. Their majority can be seen in Pampanga and Zambales while others inhabit the coastal fringes of Northern Luzon, and the mountains of Negros, Samar, Panay and Leyte. As a result of their nomadic life, they live in houses built out of grass and tree branches to easily vacate upon scarcity of surrounding food.

Aeta according to anthropologists and archeologists, are descendants of the earliest settlers of the Philippines. They were predicted to migrate in the country through land bridges that connects the country to Asian mainland 30,000 years ago. It may have occurred when the Malay Peninsula was still connected with Sumatra and other Sunda Islands. Their boundless journey around the Malay Peninsula that spread as far as The Philippines resulted to their widespread existence in the country

Malaysia

 The Semang are a Negrito ethnic group of the Malay Peninsula. Lowland Semang tribes are also known as Sakai, although this term is considered to be derogatory by the Semang people. They are the indigenous peoples of this area.They have been recorded to have lived in Malaysia since before the 200s Common Era (CE). They are ethnologically described as nomadic hunter-gatherers.

The Semang live in autonomous local bands consisting of an elder male (usually the leader of the group), his wife, their sons, and the sons’ wives and children. Their religious beliefs are complex and include numerous deities. Shaman-priests practice magic, foresee the future, and cure illness.

…it’s time for another history lesson

m-pen-studios said: Hi, I'm going to ask you another question. I know I've asked you about the course your studying, but what is it like being at College and how is it better than Sixth Form (if you think it is)?

jordanimate:

College is way better than sixth form. (in my opinion)

Sixth Form puts so much stress on you. Of course unis will look at your grades in it with higher acknowledgement, but jesus you have to do 4 different subjects, all with their own exams at the ends, with all the teachers expecting you to have enough time to do it all. The subjects are also limited, and you could end up doing subjects completely irrelevant to your interest without realising. Like to do animation, I took ICT, Art and Design, IT and Physics. I failed Art.

College has less stress, it’s usually only one course, so you have way more time to focus on the subject you enjoy and can polish and perfect your skills and work in a more suitable timeframe. It gives you more choice to choose the subject you want to, I just found animation and wondered why I hadn’t chose it before. I have more days off to do work at home, though I wish I had more time at college because I actually enjoy being with my friends there, its such a relaxed environment, and I get way better grades, the ones I expect from myself there, and I’m around people with the same interests.

I prefer college because it helps me clear my head to think about other things yet also do what I love. Sixth form was just too much stress for something that would not have been worth the mind-numbing and breaking mental breakdowns, and I can see myself having a way better chance in uni now. 

FLCL (fooly cooly), such a good anime series. For all of the people on tumblr who haven’t checked this series…. you need to. It has changed several people’s expectations (including mine……..slightly) of anime and is great to watch if your looking for something short, as it has 6 super-intense episodes. Made by Gainax

GIRLS — if you hit, slap, belittle, kick, punch, choke, throw things at, or control your boyfriends, you are the abuser. You are not a “strong woman”, “empowered”, or anything similar. You are hurting him. Even if his muscles are strong enough to take it, a hit or slap from someone you love is an emotional blow.

Written by a girl who’d never hit a guy.

Jus’ somethin’ some girls (not all) need to know

While the international community drags it’s feet on the Ebola crisis, #Cuba has sent 165 health professionals to Freetown Sierra Leone, the largest medical team of any other nation. 300 more #Cuban doctors and nurses will also go to Liberia and Guinea.
Although Cuba is far from a “wealthy” country, it’s universal health-care system allows them to export heath workers, 50K in 66 countries to be exact. Often responding to foreign health crises (like Katrina) at an extensive rate. #kudos #afrocuban

So Cuba goes out to respond to the health crisis while America sits back, panics and tell everyone not to travel because of the Ebola crisis. “Land of the Free, Home of the Brave”? More like “Land of the selfish, home of the paranoid”…
