From the Melanated Man:
Most of my audience on this young blog have passing knowledge of what melanin is. I am still learning about it myself. I do know that it is more than what they taught us in school. As a matter of fact, I don’t remember melanin being mentioned in ANY of my science courses throughout my 18 years of indoctrination ( grade school, high school, college.) But melanin is the reason for our existence on this planet, and why black people are the most valuable mammals on the planet:
Definition of Melanin:
“Melanin is a complex polymer derived from the amino acid tyrosine. Melanin is responsible for determining skin and hair color and is present in the skin to varying degrees, depending on how much a population has been exposed to the sun historically.”
Melanin can also be found in:
-nervous system (neuromelanin)
– endocrine system (hormones)
-Reproductive and digestive system.
Melanin is the vital chemical that creates life. There are many characteristics of melanin listed below:
-Flexible like plastic
-Can resemble a cloud, gas, wood, metal or liquid and takes on many forms without losing structure.
-Heat resistant, can endure temperatures of 1225 degrees Fahrenheit
-Has a pleasant odor, resists X-ray diffraction
–Can resist strong acids and alkaline.
Melanin can absorb all types of energy such as sunlight, electromagnetic, music heard and unheard by the ears, phone waves, radio waves, radar, computer radiation, X-ray, cosmic rays, ultraviolet rays, heat waves, microwaves, and much more. Also, melanin uses the energy in the total environment such as water, earth, moon, sun, the galaxy, planet cycles, and mineral cycles. As a matter of fact, melanin can be found in the environment: springs, lakes, soil, plants, atmosphere and animals.
BLACK PEOPLE HAVE THE HIGHEST CONCENTRATION OF MELANIN ON EARTH! Which makes us the most natural beings to this planet! We are connected to nature and the universe in a way that Caucasians can never be. Or any other people for that matter. Unfortunately the majority of us are ignorant to this knowledge. We have to harness this knowledge and regain our rightful place on this planet. Extinction is imminent.
It is said that outer space is made up of dark matter; melanin is dark matter.
“In the beginning God created the heave and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said let there be light; and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness.”
We have only just begun…
