yu did know bout di Gullah?
me admit, me never know.
The Gullah are a people that live in the low country of South Carolina and Georgia
I will skip the history lesson and tell you this….dem talk like we and dem gwaan like we
Most of the Africans that came into the US came in through this region and they have maintained much more of the African culture than other African Americans
did i mention dem talk like we
dem seh unnu
dem seh bin yah
dem seh come yah
now i’ve never watched Gullah Gullah island, but i know them have a tadpole name binyah- which is a tribute to the Gullah/Geechee culture
i doubt, however, that they allowed the people on it to speak in the native language, you know language very political
either way big ups to Nick for trying a ting
watch da story teller yah, and tell me who she remind yu of…
Nuh Ms. Lou dat? yu hear when she say di hog yeays …nuh ears…yeays. and di hog lay dung. sas crise
and see a likkle documentary yaso too
me cyan believe it
dem talk jus like we to fawt….Africa lives on eeh? no matter how dem try. Of course the culture is under threat because the young people keep leaving seeking better opportunities and the only income in the areas is from tourism.
They could develop the areas as tourist destinations but that would destroy the local culture. Always the catch 22
also…of course, everybody here bout dis new and different area and gone go buil dem big house down there and a send up property values to the point that people cyaan afford fi live inna dem own home anymore
the world is not your friggin oyster, you movin all over the place pissing money on people and seeking the exotic….that exotic place is someone’s home. at least have the manners to respect the local customs and traditions when you move there! we nah seh nuh move, we nah seh nuh spen yu money, a your money, but a fi di people dem land, have some respect. and di worse part, often people just haffi put up wid it because dem need di money. can we share di world wid respect?
…Indigenous people have a whole heap more fi seh pon dis matter
anyways, this is not that kind of post.
big ups to the Gullah. !!
bin yah come yah indeed
