  5. I’ve always been under the belief that melanin doesn’t exist outside of Afrikan blood, and any other nation claiming melanin is simply looking for a reason to matter in this day an age of “me too, I’m diverse”
    As said by Afrikan elders: Any form of melanin amongst so-called mixed race children – which in itself is a racists term – automatically washes out all European blood. Ergo Black, not mixed race. Melanin o be Black blood of Afrikan heritage regardless of shade.

    • You know what, I can see your point. A melanin chart is a way in being politically correct with the masses I guess. What I’m starting to realize even more each and every day is that “being Black” is different than looking and behaving Blackish. Most people who have a small amount or lack melanin who wish to elevate themselves are at a huge disadvantage. But not all Black-Africans’ melanin are radiating on a high frequency either, and that’s what matters at the end of the day: raising the Kundalini to activate the gift we take for granted.


  6. Melanin gets it’s color from Carbon-12, the most abundant form of carbon on earth. With 6 protons, 6 neutrons, and 6 electrons, it is the most stable and purest form of the element. We truly are one with the Earth.
