More|Than|Skin|Deep

 For wisdom is better than rubies; and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it

Proverbs 8:11

People of African decent and European decent are more closely related, genetically, than any other people are to  Africans. One has to wonder, why or how? I mean, we seem to be each other’s total opposite physically. As black people, or people of color,  many blacks and the rest of the world have been systemically led to believe that black is somehow inferior to white. Many believe that the curse of Ham, mentioned in the Bible, is the dark skin of black people. Due to scientific evidence, however, this is far from the truth. We have just recently started hearing that Africa is the cradle of mankind, but have we understood the underlying implications of this? I would recommend anyone read   The Chemical Key to Black Greatness” by American Biochemist, Carol Barnes. The truth is, Caucasians are basically mutations of blacks. It has been scientifically proven, but quite obviously and purposely left out of science books in schools or merely passed off as evolutionary processes. We all know what it means to be albino; keep this in mind while you are reading the rest of this blog.

Here are some facts (check them, if you are having a hard time believing any of this, and even if you do believe it, check it anyway):

  • Melanin is a brownish black pigment (coloring) naturally found in the skin of people of color to produce Vitamin D by means of sunlight and it is needed to help sustain life (I’ll get to this later). Vitamin D is essential for promoting calcium absorption in the gut and maintaining adequate serum calcium and phosphate concentrations to enable normal mineralization of bone and prevent hypocalcemic tetany. The word melanin is from a  Greek word “melas”=black.
  • The skin is supposed to convert sunlight to Vitamin D because of 7-Dehydrocholesterol and it serves as protection by nature against harmful UV sunlight  by converting sunlight to vitamin D; black people have this ability because of the melanin naturally found in their skin. I say supposed to because there are very few foods that vitamin D is naturally found in, and this is a strong indication that melanin is suppose to be present in the skin for adequate vitamin D in all humans.
  • White people lack sufficient amounts of melanin, and this is the reason they have white skin in the first place (like albino people lack pigmentation). Why is melanin not naturally found in white people’s skin ?

AnswerWhites have a higher concentration of enzyme inhibitors(blockers) that suppress melanin production. In addition, white people have a much higher occurance of calcified (harden) pineal glands. Why does this matter? The pineal gland secretes melatonin, which activates the pituitary to release M.S.H. Melanocyte Stimulating Hormone; since the pineal glands are calcified, normal amounts of melanin is not produced or secreted. In genetics, this is called a mutation and mutations are abnormal (like albinism)

  • If melanin is needed to convert sunlight into vitamin D and white people do not possess this melanin component, at least not in sufficient amounts, how do white people get essential vitamin D?

Answer: They get it mostly from their bones, fish, or dietary supplements. In fact, white people have the lowest bone density of all people in the world.  Since the skin is supposed to convert sunlight to Vitamin D because of 7-Dehydrocholesterol by means of melanin, and white people lack this component, the body compensates by depleting calcium from their bones; depletion of bone mass is responsible for their low bone density. Since this is not true of black people, black people typically have the strongest bones.

Why does all this matter?

Black skin is normal, not only is it normal, but it is the template for all other people.  I don’t want to step on anyone’s toes but white skin is a mutation from black skin. The lighter the skin, the less melanin present; the darker the skin, the more melanin present.  Mutation is defined as: a change of the DNA sequence within a gene or chromosome of an organism resulting in the creation of a  trait not found in the parental (orginal) type or lack of trait in mutant that is found in the parental (orginal) type. Melatonin is directly related to fertilitydark complexion around the nipples and genital area of all people, especially blacks is common. Melanin is present at the inception of life— a melanin sheath covers any sperm and any egg. During pregnancy, the nipples, face, and abdominal wall become darkened.  These areas of increased pigmentation during pregnancy are due to the increase in the production of estrogens

 

  • This could be a contributing factor as to why white people have the lowest birthrates of all people; their melanin deficiency is why their reproduction systems does not work as efficiently as others.
  • Blue eyes, also, are simply eyes that lack melanin.  Blue eyes are more sensitive to sunlight and do not process light or produce sight as efficiently as brown eyes. 
  • White gene DNA cannot be traced back as far as their genetic parents, black Africans, because they (whites) are mutations of the parental black African.
  • All phenotypes (physical appearances) exist within the black family. Asian people are only the semi-recessive descendants of their ancestors who were a black African tribe with slanted eyes.

This is in no way an impression upon anyone’s intelligence as James Waton “proclaimed. We all have the same chemical and physical make-up of brains, so unless someone, on an indivdual level, is just mentally challenged, we all possess the same mental capabilities.  The question remains, though, in a “white is right” world, why are blacks and the rest of the world striving to be more mutant physically?… Skin bleching, blue contacts, etc. See  (Unspoken “Rules”|Color Complex and Mental|Black|Bondage)

Research it.

Unspoken “Rules”|Color Complex

In general, there is this idea  that some black people have…….. that there is actually something wrong/negative with having dark skin (see Mental|Black|Bondage), which is all together unintelligent considering that dark skin is the ultimate “blackness”; it is the foundation, root, and therefore life source of all the different array of colors seen in the black tree (race) . See (Skin Deep|REALLY Deep

 Simply put:  A tree (the black race) without it’s roots(the black element) does not exist.
The first step is acknowledging that there is a problem.

Common Ideas:

  • Light skin is more attractive than dark skin

The key word here is skin, determining someone’s beauty solely based on the color of their skin ….obviously, there’s a little more than just “preference” at play.

– Many blacks resort to skin bleaching for lighter skin

 -I have personally heard and know of blacks who have children by  white, mixed, or very light skin guys/women to increase the probability of having a light skinned baby .

-I have personally heard and know of blacks who would not have a child with a dark skin man/woman for fear of  having a dark skin baby

Comments often directed to attractive dark skin black people:

“She/he is pretty/attractive to be dark skin”| “She/he is pretty/attractive to be a black girl/guy

Comments often directed to attractive/unattractive light skin black people:

 In AmericaRed-Bone” is a name given to light skin blacks– like something different from being black all together. In Jamaica they are called Brownin” .

Dark skin slurs:

Blackie”|“Tar baby”|”Tar”|“African” |”Skillet“|” Shadow” (All referring to dark skin tone)

African” is used in complete ignorance with the mindset that all Africans have very dark skin.

Light skin slurs:

High yellow”|“House nigger”|“Conceited” (All referring to light skin tone)

House nigger” is in a historical context when the lighter skinned black slaves were allowed to work in the house with the white slave owners, while darker skin slaves were forced to work outside in fields.

  • Dark skin people should not wear bright colors like (cloths, makeup, etc): Yellow, orange, red, lime green etc.

                       (Oluchi)

In truth, however, when darker skin people wear brighter colors, it makes their skin tones more appealing, as it brings out and complements their skin tone. Try colors like turquoise, peach, soft yellows, bright yellows.  It’s really a plus for anyone to wear color, but a double plus for people of darker hue because it makes your skin more noticeable.

  • Speak “properly” around whites /Speak “ebonics/street” around other blacks

This is a classic, some people have their “white cent” and their “black cent” and they use them when around either white or black people respectively. Just stirve to be a better you everyday and be yourself around everyone!

  • Many blacks are considered “stuck up”| “Sell outs” etc. and such if they go against things…much like the ones I’ve already stated. You’re not black or you’re stuck up if you….

Don’t go “clubbin

Don’t speak “hood

Don’t support some of these ridiculous, almost blackface… black “parody” movies

  • Bad hair

Bad hair is seen as basically the natural state of mostly every black person’s hair–small, tight curls; it is often called  “nappy” or “kinky

  • Natural hair/dreads is seen as being “Afrocentic

So I suppose relaxed/chemically altered hair is “Eurocentric

  • Relaxed/chemically altered hair

Chemically alters hair, straightens hair, even burns scalp/hair

Female children usually start getting their hair relaxed at age 5& up

Check out India.Arie’sI am not my hair

  • Good hair

Good hair is seen as soft, loose curls, straight with the texture is more stringy and Caucasian-like

– I know of people that have children with someone of another race or the same race who supposedly has “good hair” so that the child will have a higher probability of having supposedly good hair

The next step is dealing with the problem by loving who you are, directly and indirectly, inside and out. There are beautiful black people, dark and light. There are beautiful black people all over the world who are not light skin and are as dark chocolate as wet sand lit only by  moonlight (another post).

             Skin color —some black people argue— is preference, but is it really? Then I ask….preference for what? For maintaing a white is right attitude?…because…if someone is attractive, they are attracitve with or without having light or dark skin. Free yourself from slave-like mentality lest you press your children and future generations with the same burden many of us already have. Embrace your blackness by loving yourself.
