From the Melanin Man:
I’ve been meaning to push to post out now for a couple weeks, but been sidetracked with my mundane work tasks lol. It may be my birthday today (yay!) but I’ve been needing to get this post off my chest, so…
(Side note: Plus, let’s be real. If the current calendar had never been concocted by the powers-that-be, we would never know when our birthdays would be. Is it really that big of a deal? lol )
I wrote about the importance of our women, now it’s time to focus on the Black Man.
To my Black brothers from other mothers, I have to be honest with you…
We are the walking dead!
And I’m not just talking about those of us who are in jail, unemployed, deadbeat husbands and fathers, or whatever label the media places on us.
I’m talking about the ENTIRE LOT of us. Even the very small few of us who are succeeding, according to European standards, are fading away as well.
Ask yourself this question, Black Man: Are you REALLY the head of your household when you’re respecting the rules and regulations put in place by another species of man? When will we realize that we can’t break away from those who don’t care for us if they are the ones educating, employing, clothing, and feeding us?
No wonder the majority of our Black Women have lost respect for us, Black Man, consciously and subconsciously. Whether or not we’re living in the household.
Who told us and set the standard for what a legal marriage should be?
Who gives us the two thumbs up when we decide choose to divorce?
Who do our women run to in order to receive child support and alimony from?
For me personally, the more I see the bullshit, the more I realize I’m NOT the man I want or need to be! Black Man, we need to create our own reality, a reality that will benefit the welfare of our women and children.
We should NOT mimic a man who is quite honestly physically, mentally, and spiritually inferior to the Black Man in every way.
WE should NOT place the protection and security of that reality within the womb of a woman who is NOT the original woman on the planet, the Black Woman.
(Another side note: Even at a young age, my mama would tell me, “You betta not bring no white gurl to my house.” Funny thing is, my mama is not nearly as conscious as I am today. She’s a Christian woman through and through lol. But she was aware enough to make such a statement. I could never understand how a self-proclaimed woman of God could say such a thing.
But as I gotten older, I get it. No matter how much the media tries to brainwash us, nature is nature. If you are of nature, you want to be with your own.
Annnnnnd, it made me realize how much of a farce religion truly is. )
Black Man, bottom line, you are NOT EQUAL to your white, Caucasoid counterpart! For those of you who disagree, I don’t apologize. You can call me prejudice, racist, or flat out a bigot. This is how I see it, and there ain’t nothing going to change that.
So what should we aspire to be, brethren?
When you carry the God-particle (MELANIN!), you are suppose to express yourself and reality as such: in a GOD-FORM!! That may sound preposterous, even borderline pompous and arrogant to many of us quite frankly.
But do your research. It’s TRUTH!
What is God?
I don’t believe in that superhero, -miracle-working human archetype, birthed from the Westernized, European frame of mind. That’s how the white, Caucasoid mindset perceives it, and want the masses to perceive it.
In my opinion, God is boundless and unlimited in its creativity, thinking, and expression. God is chaotic, ungovernable by external forces, yet composed, calm, and self-assured. God is omnipresent in every nook and cranny of nature and the universe.
You are essentially God in the human form , Black Man, according to your own unique talents and gifts.
Black Men, by accepting that reality, we unlock the GOD (or GODDESS lol) that is within the Black Woman. That gives her the opportunity to materialize ourselves, through her own talents and gifts, on this plane of human existence. Although we shouldn’t be looking at a two dimensional television screen in the first place, there’s a reason there’s an extreme dearth of Black Man-Black Woman relationships portrayed in a positive light on the screen. The Black Man-Black Woman relationship will destroy this reality as we know it.
Yet the more they promote the “We Are All Equal” message, interracial marriages, integration, etc., the wheels keep rolling on.
We’ve ALLOWED the powers-that-be to do unimaginable things to neuter and control our God nature. From the death foods, restrictive religion and unimaginative spirituality, to the train-to-serve-Massa style of education and the mundane joy-killing life routines, we really are DEAD MEN WALKING!
I’ll give you an example, by way of a close friend of mine: For those of you who still frequent church , I want you to do an observation. Check out whose doing most of the work in the church. Is it the men or the women? And on any given Sunday, check out the body language of the men versus the women during service? Who’s into the message more so than the other?
The Black Woman is game, guys. She’s indeed LIT, waiting for that spark **wink wink**. In spite of the wave of new age feminism and the “I Don’t Need a Man” foolishness, nonetheless, Black women who have the desire to express true womanhood have no problem following the leadership of a man. They’re just following the wrong man, consciously and subconsciously. And it’s killing them on ALL LEVELS (a great reference to check out on this matter is “The Wounded Womb” by Dr. Phil Valentine.) If there is ONE reason the Black Woman shouldn’t be in the workplace (besides the fact that it goes against her nature as a woman) it is that Black Men (those who are Black-minded) can’t really protect her from the stresses of a white male-dominated workplace (e.g. sexual harassment) considering its NOT a domain he created.
With the way I think now, I can honestly say that there are not ANY Black Men, peer or elder, in my life that I know personally who has the ability to stand on their own two feet, including myself, absent the assistance of the white male in any fashion. I know men who have parts to them that are valid and resonate with me tremendously, but they, we, are not WHOLE as men, still operating by the whims of colonizers.
That’s how I see it.
I accept the possibility that I may never experience total liberation as a Black Man in my lifetime. But that won’t keep me from trying.
It’s what I strive for now…as a Black Man.
Because in my heart of hearts, there is nothing else worth living for…as a Black Man!
I hope there are a few of you out there, my Black brethren, that share that same sentiment.
Peace and Love to my melanated family,
The Melanin Man
