The Purpose for “The Melanated Man” Blog


From The Melanated Man:


“I wanted to give you more information on what this blog is about. Over the past couple of years I have experienced and learned information concerning my health and overall awareness of the world we live in. You can say I have become ‘wise to the game.’

I have learned that the society that has been put in place does not have the common man’s best interests at heart, especially the common black (melanated) man. When it comes to our physical health, it is a modern day holocaust that is not taken seriously. When it comes to our ‘faith’, our spiritual and emotional health, we are abused like no other, not only from the shepherds who counsel us but also from those who pull their strings. The general economic situation for the black (melanated) population needs no further explanation.

But no one questions ‘The Matrix.’  Because that is exactly what it is. We are batteries, being used to feed the BEAST. I am at a point where I want to help those who I hold near and dear, and those who I have never met who are suffering like the rest of us. I see a need to share what I know, and I am going to follow the Creator’s wishes. Make no mistake, I am still a life-long learner. That’s how you become a great leader.

Topics will range from our health and how we (blacks) should really be eating, deconstructing the society (The MATRIX) we have been placed into, developing our metaphysical senses, and the power and importance of MELANIN. I’m still learning about melanin so work with me. If you have any requests on topics you would like posted, insight or questions on anything, feel free to comment or message me. If you want to write a post let me know and I can set that up. If you would like to invite others to the blog feel free to do so. This is not just about what I think; I don’t want to walk this journey by myself. Thank you  all following this blog and hopefully I can add to your life as well as to mine. Blessings be upon you all!”




E.D. vs E.L.: The Importance of an Alkaline Diet

Human nutrition is often measured and regulated by acids and alkalis. Acid foods usually have a sour after-taste. They cause deterioration or corrosive by nature. Alkaline foods are non-acid and make an acid solution weak. They taste bitter and feel slippery within the mouth. The pH scale measures from 0 to 14. From 1 to 7 is acid, 7 is neutral, and 7 to 14 is alkaline.

Alkaline foods have a high content of magnesium, sodium, calcium, and potassium, essential nutrients for the body. Most fresh fruits and vegetables are alkaline. Without large amounts of alkaline mineral elements in the diet, the body becomes DIS-EASED. The body robs the tissue and bones for the alkaline elements to balance a high acidic diet, which causes a nutritional debt. This debt is paid by the organs, nerves, bones, and connecting tissues. The drain of minerals (alkaline) nutrients from the lungs, reproductive organs, jaw, teeth, then the bones results in DIS-EASE, such as: colds, flu, reproductive problems, jaw deterioration, rotten teeth, etc.

A diet that consists of animal flesh and cooked vegetables is the second highest acidic diet. The vegetarian that includes raw and cooked foods has the lowest acid levels. THE HEALTHIEST ALKALINE-ACID RATION IS A DIET WITH A 4:1 RATIO (80% ALKALINE, 20% ACID!!)

All refined , processed, denatured man-made foods are acidic, which includes: fast food restaurants, your Hamburger Helper-type meals, TV dinners, all the desserts we love to partake during the fall and winter holidays (and other numerous occasions), etc., etc., etc.!!! If it’s not fresh, green, birthed with seeds, straight out of the produce section, you’re playing Russian roulette. There’s a list of alkaline and acid foods listed below:

Where do you go from here, Kendrick Lamar?

Written by: The Melanated Man


I didn’t see Kendrick Lamar’s Grammy’s performance. By many accounts the performance was groundbreaking and earth-shaking. I haven’t had a chance to listen to his latest album To Pimp a Butterfly, and again by all accounts it was groundbreaking and earth-shaking. His debut album (not his first) Good Kid, M.A.A.D. City was mesmerizing, so I can only imagine how amazing this album with a CONCIOUS tone would be. Kendrick’s rise through the ranks from rags-to-riches story closely resembles the trajectory of the likes of 2Pac, Notorious B.I.G., Jay-Z, Eminem, and numerous others. A trajectory towards greatness. At this point though, a question of what type of greatness is Kendrick shooting for should be asked.

The mainstream music platform is hardly the setting where real, transformative change takes place for the black (melanated) population that is considered the minority voice in not only the USA but also the entire planet. A population that has been suffering from long-term economic turmoil, rampant inequality and racism, and overlooked spiritual, mental and emotional abuse. If anything the mainstream music platform has only worsened the problem.

Kendrick resembles a young 2Pac in his young career, where the latter spoke against the atrocities his people were facing on a daily basis. Unfortunately he became tainted by the THUG LIFE mantra propagated by his handlers and his label Death Row. Anyone with passing knowledge of 2Pac’s last days regarding his music had to know that he was dealing with a conundrum on whether he should stay true to his original message of true liberation for his people or poison his fans with the message of overconsumption and overall reckless living. Maybe it had something to do with his untimely death (assassination?)

For those who are unfamiliar with the situation, we do not own the music industry. The industry is ran by white, mostly Jewish executives who have no interest in black (melanated) liberation. Our liberation brings about their demise. Any type of music that promotes and encourages that message will at best co-opted to fit capitalistic ideals or worse, extinguished. So again I ask, where do you go from here, Kendrick Lamar?

If his motives are pure and sincere regarding the liberation of his people he would be best served to graduate from the mainstream music platform (maybe to the conscious rap genre) and serve his community at the grassroots level, sort of like a riches-to-rags situation. He places the needs of his people above his own desires, becomes an example to not only other current music artists, but to his peer group as a whole. Collectivism wins over individualism, a close ally to capitalism. Or…

He can stay in the mainstream music platform, where more than likely he will have to compromise not only his music artistry but himself as a whole to survive , thus exposing himself as a fraud. A foe against his own people. They will corrupt his music into the same acidic message that has enslaved our minds for decades. He will be no different than Jay-Z, Kanye West, etc. that are currently atop the Billboard charts. Artists who sold us out.

Will he take the road less traveled? Will he prove me wrong? I hope so sincerely. I like the guy and what he brings to the table. But there were others like him who came before him as well.

The Good Kid, M.A.A.D. City album was a truly entertaining masterpiece.  Judging by his latest album he may be venturing into social activism. Let’s hope it’s not an anomaly.




Did you know?: The man who cured AIDS, etc.





“Dr. Sebi is classified as a healer, pathologist, herbalist, biochemist, and naturalist. Sebi was born Alfredo Bowman on November 26, 1933 in the village of Llanga in Honduras. He had no formal schooling. He was taught by his grandmother in his through his childhood. Sebi came to the USA as a self-educated man who was diagnosed with asthma, diabetes, impotency, and obesity. After many unsuccessful treatments with conventional Western-taught doctors, Sebi was led to a herbalist in Mexico. Gaining healing from aliments listed above, he began creating natural vegetation cell food compounds geared for intercellular cleansing and the revitalization of all the cells that make up the human body.

In 1988, he took on the New York Attorney General in a Supreme Court case where he was sued for false advertisement and practice without a license after placing ads in newspapers, such as the New York Post, where he announced:

“AIDS has been cured by the USHA Research Institute, and we specialize in cures for Sickle Cell, Lupus, Blindness, Herpes, Cancer, and others.”

Before the trial, Sebi had to provide one witness per dis-ease he had claimed to cure to court. Instead, he brought 77 witnesses to court and the judge had no choice but to declare him NOT GUILTY on all accounts, proving that he did in fact have the cure to all dis-eases mentioned in the papers.

Several top celebrities sought healing from the doctor which includes: Michael Jackson, Magic Johnson, Eddie Murphy, John Travolta and the deceased Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes. Lisa had showed public support for the doctor’s teachings before she died in a car accident in Honduras after leaving Dr. Sebi’s USHA Healing Village. Makes you wonder?

According to Sebi, there is only one culprit for all DIS-EASES, which is MUCUS. Mucus buildup is the result of our starch and blood consumption (MEAT), which can be cleared primarily through fasting, bio mineral alkaline rich foods and herbs, which you can find on his website. ”

Take a look at his website to fully understand his philosophy:






Eating to Die vs. Eating to Live: A Reblog

Reblog from









This cheap, addictive form of sugar is both addictive and destructive. Prior to its creation during the 1980s, sugar was derived from sugar cane and beets. The use of high fructose corn syrup has brought monstrous profits to food companies and pharmaceutical companies, while leaving citizens battling obesity and other ailments as a result of consuming this cheap sugar. Unfortunately, for American citizens HFCS is in most packaged goods, limiting the choices one has of eating foods without it.

Please read this article for more information on High Fructose Corn Syrup:


  1. MSG

Anjinomoto is a Japanese drug manufacture that is also the world’s number one manufacturer of MSG. MSG is usually associated with Chinese food but it is prevalent in thousands of foods Americans consume daily, from chicken stock to corn starch. According to neurosurgeon Dr. Russel Blaylock taste enhancers such as “ACCENT’ are very damaging to the human body. Even the FDA has acknowledged the dangers of MSG, linking it to:

  • Learning disabilities
  • Obesity
  • Headaches
  • Eye Damage
  • Fatigue
  • Depression
  • Numbness
  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Lou Gehrig’s disease



Using common sense one does not believe all the ground beef served worldwide derives from only beef. Even with the use of steroids the cows still have to grow, be slaughtered, packaged and shipped. Due to the demand, meat producers utilize filler called LFTB (lean finely textured beef) and BLBT (boneless beef trimmings) also known as “pink slime.” In layman’s terms, companies take the fat trimmings and gristle and treat it with extreme heat, ammonia gas, and citric acid making into a consistency similar to the ground beef and use it as a filler. Due to pressure McDonald’s claims to have banned the use of pink slime in their burgers but what about those other greedy beef manufacturers?


  1. GMO

Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO) are crops turned science projects that harm the human body. The biggest culprit of GMO is a billion-dollar conglomerate called Monsanto. Monsanto has done unprecedented damage to Mother Earth and her children. Monsanto is also responsible for Agent Orange, which still has Vietnamese birthing mutated children with arms growing out of their backs due its use in chemical warfare during the Vietnam War. The most common GMO foods are:

  • Canola (Majority of fried foods are fried in canola oil.)
  • Corn
  • Papaya
  • Soy
  • Sugar Beets



Known as plumping, salt water injections are an effort to increase the weight of a chicken, making it heavier and, hence more profitable. By doing this, chicken producers are also increasing the sodium level of the chicken by 500%. Consumers are only purchasing 85 % chicken and 15% salt water.



This ingredient is used with a mixture of chemicals used to keep meats and fish looking fresh. Carbon monoxide is a pollutant released from running cars, so why are food companies using this poisonous gas that has been used in numerous suicide attempts as an additive to food? Scientists are aware of the deadly effects on humans and animals that are exposed to carbon monoxide. In a society where profits come before humanity, companies utilize this toxic gas to prolong the presentation of meats and fish.

  1. AFRTIFICIAL SWEETNERS ( Aspartame and Sucralose)

These two sugar-enhancing science projects are fixtures in kitchen cupboards, delis, coffee shops, teacher lounges, and offices, silently destroying those who consume it.

Aspartame (NutraSweet, Equal, NatraSweet, Canderel, Spoonfuls, DiabetiSweet)

Dr. Roberts reports that by 1998, aspartame products were the cause of 80% of complaints to the FDA about food additives. Some of these symptoms include headache, dizziness, change in mood, vomiting or nausea, abdominal pain and cramps, change in vision, diarrhea, seizures/convulsions, memory loss, and fatigue.

Sucralose (Splenda)

Spleanda promises to reduce one’s intake of sugar; however it damages the liver and kidneys.

Its absorption by the digestive system may explain why researchers at Duke University in 2008 found that Splenda negatively alters gut microflora in rats and may limit the bioavailability of drugs and nutrients  (The study can be found here as published in the Journal of Toxicology and Environmental Health.) A myriad other studies showing Splenda’s adverse effects—ranging from bowel disturbances, kidney mineralization, and tumor growth—can be reviewed here.

Spelnda also causes:

  • Headaches
  • Insomnia
  • Aggression
  • Panic attacks
  • Irritability
  • Mood swings
  • Depression
  • Blurred vision
  • Weight gain

Eating to Die vs. Eating to Live : Part 1

Blessings to  my melanated family,

Do you know how to EAT to live? Before you answer that question, think it through. If I had to guess, these would be the responses I would receive:

“I only knew what my parents taught me!”

“If I didn’t know how to eat, I would be dead, fool!”

And my personal favorite….

“I LIVE to eat. I love to enjoy food, that’s a part of enjoying life. What would be the point of living?”

That last response gets me every time. At least 80% of the black community does not know how to eat to live, or better yet, makes an effort to do such.  That is my personal belief. What if I told you we were not meant to eat everyday, or that we only needed to eat according to the amount of physical activity? Never heard that have you?

The health calamities in the black community are endless: high blood pressure, heart attacks and heart failures, diabetes, cancers, kidney diseases, etc., etc., etc. We are working our bodies too hard eating our life away. By eating dead food. Dead meat, overcooked vegetables, and an overabundance on sugar…white sugar…which is unofficially a drug.  Every single day. Oh, where’s the fruit? I forgot, you can get that in the peach cobbler or the banana pudding. By the time we find out we have health issues the damage has been done. We need to do right from the womb…THE WOMB!!!

We are doing our children a disservice. It is imperative we reprogram our children from McDonalds Happy Meals to fresh, living vegetables and fruit. Preferably home grown, but different topic for another post. Being a big man most of my life gave me the opportunity to see the holocaust that is occurring through the food served by the powers that be (another post.) Killing my fellow melanated brothers and sisters who are clueless to the Matrix (and again, another post.) Luckily I made the change and I am seeing life clearer every second. When you put life in your temple instead of death…there you go!
