From the Melanin Man:
I’ve come two realizations concerning being a Black Man/Woman on this planet:
Number one, STRUGGLE IS OUR BIRTHRIGHT!
That’s cruel, it’s harsh. Yet, it’s the TRUTH.
Now I’m not blind. Everybody, whether they have melanin or not, even those who are in the top 1% in society, endure hardship in some form or fashion during their imprisonment as a human being. Yet, we can all agree and this is wouldn’t be a reach to say this, but the Black Man/Woman (not just of color, but of mind, spirit, and soul) is the most hated, despised enemy on the face of the earth!
I haven’t traveled all over the world to verify this FACT, but I was born and raised in the modern-day Roman civilization, the gold -standard of modern civilization, the good-ole US of A. The American way has infiltrated in every crevice of society, in every “third-world” and “first-world” country (some bullshit smh), like a incurable plague. And Caesar has plundered the minds and talents of the authentic Black Man/Woman to his own benefit and have sanctioned any attempt to liberate the minds and hearts of Black people to be act punishable by DEATH, whether in a cage, by the bullet, or my personal favorite and maybe the most damning of them all, assimilation.
We are the enemy of the state, the weeds in the grass.
Some context: I’ve been working in my lawn recently, removing “weeds”, mainly so we can avoid the side-eye from H.O.A (the homeowner’s association, or as I call ’em, the neighborhood police) and the neighbors, to make our lawn fit in like the rest. It takes a considerable amount of consistent effort to spray and remove “weeds”, or rather, the undesirables within the neat and petite grass collective. If you let up just a bit, the weeds will take over and outgrow the neat and petite grass. And that’s all that you will notice in your lawn, THE WEEDS!
See the correlation? See how in the most mundane of activities (freaking lawn care?!) our minds are being geared to see the world in a certain way?
Black Man/Woman, we are NOT weeds. We are NOT undesirables. We are the INEVITABILITY of what’s real. That’s why “they” continue to put the fire to our ass and try to weed us out of the picture.
“They” know deep down they have to or it’s OVER for them.
Which, unfortunately, leads me to my second realization, probably the most depressing of the two, for the Black Man/Woman:
Number 2, WE AIN’T OVERCOMING SHIT!
Well, when it concerns anything involving this PHYSICAL BULLSHIT.
There is no amount of education, no pristine healthy lifestyle, no economic plan (that includes NO REPARATIONS #ADOS) that will satisfy our trapped souls, to keep us interested in the lowest form of being, the human being. The Black-Melanated Man/Woman, the original ones, perfected the art of humanity eons ago.
We are the example everyone else follows. Through our ancient texts which were co-opted and appropriated from our ancestors, we have given others the tools to behave human and civilized, as well as the opportunity to experience spiritual enlightenment…if that even exist for those who lack melanin.
Now, you couldn’t tell that from what you see out here on the media. In the eyes of world, we are the savages, the uncivilized. During some point along the way, we gave up the reigns of this realm of humanity to the Caucasoid, as he’s become the current standard bearer for how to be a human being.
And what a glorious, treacherous, murderous reign he has oversaw! Rest assured, he’s going to everything in his power, including sacrificing his own kind, to keep his reign of terror chugging along.
Yet, and I mentioned it previously, we are NOT suppose to return back to the pinnacle of humanity.
Been there, done that.
So why are we so concerned about being good & moral Christians, Muslims, Hebrew Israelites, Democrats, Afro-centrists, WOKE & CONSCIOUS (yeah, I said it!), hard-working (smh) human Negros? I guarantee that’s not what we are here to become. To become anything outside of the ancient, CHAOTIC melanated beings we already were is ASININE, to say the least.

Am I saying we should “steal, kill, & destroy” towards our oppressors as they have done to us? No, because we’d still be acting within that treacherous human nature that we’re trying to break free. We should “turn the other cheek,” shun our humanity in ALL its splendor and glory, and return to our true spiritual selves.
To do that is to WELCOME struggle into your life.
But by “bearing that cross”, you have chosen to accept WHAT you truly are, Black Man/Woman. You decided to “break the chains” of this human prison, liberate your soul, and return back to your rightful place as GODS & GODDESSES!!!
It’s time to end this cosmic joke!
Peace and Love to my melanated family,
The Melanin Man
