Historically: Nhu/Ntu/tho denoted to race, racial-identity, moral-values (Ubuntu/botho/hunhu) altruism being a core/centre of our culture and belief (Spirituality). Until some people from other continents with different physically features landed into Bantu kingdoms. Some factors led to assumption of other racial-identity names for the Bantu/Vanhu/Batho. Some racial-identity names amongst them were derogatory: e.g. negro, kiffir and so on.
It is an insult to our racial intelligence, capabilities and our Vanhu/Bantu/Batho forbearers: couldn’t have what it takes to identify our race in humane dignity.
There was no black as racial-identity by then but BANTU/VANHU/BATHO until certain era in human history. Some other factors and survival mechanisms by some races resulted into a need to instill self-denial into the bantu people in order to effect and influence our racial behaviour into another man’s making.
