“Once upon a time, Human Beings were exactly that, ‘Hue’ (color) Man Beings” ~Dr. John Henrik Clark
Does Black equal Melanin-Rich?
Although “Black” is a color similar to other colors (blue, red, white, brown, etc.), there is something special about it. Black is the key carbon (color) of the universe. Black equals melanin. That said, melanin can be found in every known substance.
Think about that for a moment.
It is in coal just as it is in a bicycle. It is in everything from the almighty sun to dirt in a field. This substance is in people, plants, animals…even in the air. In fact, according to Dr.Pookrum:
“Melanin is the face of the Universe / God (Goddess)”
Melanin is literally the universe in a microcosm. It is a biological, living light-source interacting and reacting upon itself. This pigment literally absorbs ALL FORMS OF ENERGY: heat, light, sound, intelligence, electricity, radiation, solar, nuclear, etc. This may explain why in the western system, men who are supposed to have knowledge of justice (judges) are always dressed in black.
The historian, Dr. Ashra Kwesi, challenges us to think about why scholars are clad in all-black, academic robes at their highest point of achievement (graduation)?
“To sum it up, black attire for ministers, priests, judges and scholars is the norm in the white supremacy system / culture…worldwide!” ~ Dr. Ashra Kwesi
Why would this be the case if the color black is so evil?
“This is evidence that, at some unconscious level, the collective white psyche has an awareness that the color black is essential to be in touch with the god-force of wisdom and justice”
As stated earlier, melanin is the “universe in a microcosm”, with the macrocosm being space itself. In other words, when a melanin-rich person looks up at a clear, beautiful, black, night sky, she is looking at a reflection of her own face! All the colors of the spectrum visible to the visual eye are related to melanin. So you see, melanin can be found as a pigment anywhere from pale yellow to reddish-brown to blue-black.
Green chlorophyll (in plants) is said to be the first cousin to melanin.
Melanin, if properly understood, could lead us to solving many of today’s problems such as racism, sexism (all forms of discrimination), wars, famine, etc. Once the scientific facts reach the masses, the racist-imposed concept of the male, white god and his superior so-called race can be refuted. When this happens, the lion’s share of the people around the world will be free to love themselves through their own image of the Divine Spirit. This is an indispensable step in healing ‘Hue-mans’ from their self-bondage/ hate, and lack of knowledge of themselves.
Melanin is the key ingredient that produces color in the skin of Asiatic people (Ethiopians, Nigerians, Ainu, Aborigines, Borinquen, Indians, Caribbeans, Sicilians, Israelites, etc.) of color. This is a blessing from God as melanin is the key component that links us with everybody and everything in the universe…hence a scientific reason to envision the Divine as being Black (i.e. having color).
