The Perfect Human Face

What are the Prerequisites of having a beautiful face? 1. The Contrast and vividness of Skin Color. What combinations are more intensified from dark skin to light skin?  Most faces with bright eyes, darker skin presents a vivid contrast – Faces with light skin and dark eyes give a striking contrast. Dark eyes with Dark skin the difference is intensified by color, Light skin with bright eyes is increased by receding light tones. Your skin is the canvas on which your facial features translate its beauty. 2. The congruence of facial features in the front of the head where the eyes, nose, lips, chin, cheeks, forehead all in alliance with each other giving a staggering computation of facial beauty in a combination of aesthetic perfection in harmony together. It is your facial features that make your face attractive, not your skin color.  3. The Symmetry (1.618) in numbers, the Greeks believed that perfect symmetry was responsible for the attractiveness of a face, and that attractive faces were closer to the beauty ratio of 1.618.   Universal Attractiveness. That brings me to what is “Universal Attractiveness” which is determined through nations, cultures, and eras which is common denominators in both female and male attractiveness-

11053094_663614760437334_9095206659060505778_n

Females: Big eyes, small nose, full lips, narrow jawline, youthful appearance, thick hair, an hourglass figure.

9bdbb867270e73b8c197a6abc12613a7Males: thick Eyebrows, little eyes, a more large nose, tanned skin,  prominent jawline, and a V-shaped body.

Even with defining what is really beautiful, it is a fact that beauty is Subjective. It is based on opinions or feelings rather than on facts or evidence. This subjectivity can translate into the phrase “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder” this analogy goes far beyond theory where science bases beauty strictly on the approach the eye gate is the final verdict on what it viewed as physical attractiveness through personal thought, reasoning or cultural influence. In general, beauty is beauty, but aesthetic attractiveness can be different many things are perceived as beautiful can vary from place to era and culture.


Genetics. 

Let’s face it we can’t choose our parents, so genetics definitely plays a part in what we look like. Genetics is what we inherit from our parents or grandparents. Our eye color, skin color, even the size of our feet are related to a genetic thread passed to us through our genes. Genetics is the study of genes, heredity, and genetic variation in living organisms. It is generally considered a field of biology. Biology. The science of heredity, dealing with resemblances and differences of related bodies resulting from the interaction of their genes and the environment. Genes – the basic physical unit of heredity; a linear sequence of nucleotides along a segment of DNA that provides the coded instructions for synthesis of RNA, which, when translated into protein, leads to the expression of hereditary character. Genetics definitely plays a part in how attractive we are.
Every FACE on the planet has at least one attractive feature, that is not an opinion, assumption, or personal belief.

What is it about a face (the archetype of beauty) that makes you want to look at it intently, judge its attractiveness, and analyze every feature? The pulchritude of perfection is the face which is definitely the frontline of beauty, your advertisement, your selling point it is considered the most beautiful most alluring part of the body, even more so, than the human body. Over 82% voted that having a pretty face is more desirable than a nice toned body. There are features of the face that contributes to its overall attraction:

The Eyes

The window of the soul. The eyes are the most durable emotion conveyor of the entire face they project deep emotion, whether sadness or empathy, sincere interest, sensuality, innocence, or project a particular flirtatious nature. The pigmentation of the iris varies from light brown to black, depending on the concentration of melanin in the iris pigment epithelium.
The Eyelashes
The Eyelashes these tiny long fibers that stick from our eyelids can make your eyes more alluring while giving you a very youthful look that beautifies the eyes.
The Eyebrows 
The eyebrows define the eyes as the umbrella of the eyes; they represent the whole look of the eye. The eyebrows are the most defining part of the overall look of the face, especially the sight. The eyebrow is an area of thick, delicate hairs above the eye that follows the shape of the lower margin of the brow ridges.

The Nose

A nose must reflect overall harmony and proportion concerning the other features on the face as a whole; it is the centerpiece of the face. The right nose shape is a highly coveted part of the face. The visible part of the human nose is the protruding from the real face it bears the nostrils which are needed for the sense of smell. The shape of the nose is determined by genetics. It distinguishes people apart from cultures.

The Lips

The most beautiful part of the face it defines the sexuality of the face a strong focal point as the human eye. Full lips are much to be desired for a beautiful look. Lips are a visible body part of the face. Lips are soft, mobile, and serve as the entryway for food and drink as well as a way to communicate. Human lips are a tactile sensory organ and can be erogenous when used in kissing and other acts of intimacy.

The Cheeks

They contour the entire face, they are the structure that holds the face together when cheeks are defined or full, in some faces, they are more defined.
The Chin or Jawline
Rounded jawline in men is universal and considers most attractive, in the female a small chin is much to be desired and most beautiful. The jaw is the lowermost part of the face. It tends to be more pointed and triangular in human females, while more square-shaped in human males.
The Neck
The grand part that holds up the face, it is lengthy in statue utterly divine in its objective to support the look. The neck is the part of the body that distinguishes the head from the chest and shoulders.
The Beauty Characteristics of the Nations

Ancient Egyptian beauty Queen Nefertiti was like no other with her long braided hair that framed her head, exquisite bone structure, her deep dark eyes lined with black kohl eyeliner, café au lait skin color, symmetrical face, and a long neck. Nefertiti was the essence of Egyptian beauty. In Greek mythology, the presence of beauty far leads us, mortals, back to a time where ancient Greek beauty often veered as demigods. Popular statues like “ the Judgment of Paris”, in Greek mythology was the first beauty contest which featured the three most beautiful goddesses of Olympus–Aphrodite, Hera, and Athena–for the prize of a golden apple addressed to “the fairest” , Paris was called to judge the three goddesses, the first beauty contest. This contest closely mimics that of today beauty pageants. Every nation, people. Or race. Has its distinctive patterns of features that make them unique and recognizable to the populous. There are no two people alike, like our fingerprint and eyeball patterns we are all different. Our uniqueness was created by the Most High God

Face Shapes

Our appearance is what makes us unique as individuals. Even though we are unique, specific characteristics such as jaw placement and forehead shape determine face shape. There are six different face shapes: Oval face shape, Heart-Shaped face shape, Pear-Shaped face shape, square face shape, Round face shape, and Long face shape. 1. Oval Face Shape: This is considered the perfect face shape because it is symmetrical. An oval face shape will have more full cheekbones and then narrow down to the jawline and chin. Oval face shape will also be narrow up towards the forehead.2. Heart-Shaped Face Shape: A Heart-Shaped face is very unique. It will be broader at the forehead and then taper into a small, narrow chin. This face shape is called Triangle Shape. 3. Pear-Shaped Face Shape: A Pear-Shapes face will be more full at the cheeks and jaw but have a narrow forehead.4. Square Face Shape: A Square look is widespread. It will be equally full at the forehead, cheeks, and jawline. 4. Square Face Shape: A Square face is ubiquitous. It will be equally full at the forehead, cheeks, and jawline. 5. Round Face Shape: Round face shapes are fuller and will usually look younger than they are. It will have around the forehead and a rounded chin, with wide, full cheeks. 6. Long Face Shape: A Long face shape is similar to an oval face shape but has higher cheekbones and a high forehead.

Societies today adorn their faces with makeup, the process of hiding facial imperfections or flaws but also An adornment is generally an accessory or ornament worn to enhance the beauty or status of the wearer. They are often worn to embellish, enhance, or distinguish the wearer, and to define cultural, social, or religious status within a specific community. When worn to show the economic situation, the items are often either rare or prohibitively expensive to others. Adornments are usually colorful and worn to attract attention. Facial Adornment could be for any country, traditionally or otherwise, or even the topical tattoo to enhance the skin’s appearance, or maybe the wearing of jewelry to enhance what the creator, the Creator has given us genetically.

They have a long history, around the world, from feathers or bone to modern accessories, such as jewelry. Items of adornment are also used by warriors, and by other members of the military to show rank or achievement. Either way, to each as own when in terms of any facet of adornment. I know in the east, the wear of tiaras, crowns and other symbols for a profession of royalty, as is in India, the wear of nose earrings, is quite common. In Africa, a lot of tribal rituals involve face paint. In most societies, the wearing of makeup from foundation to the coloring of eyelids is quite common to enhance the beauty of the face and eyes. So throughout the world, there is a form of facial adornment conducive to the times, cultures, customs, traditions, and societies. The facial decoration is in the styles of makeup, earrings, paint, tattoos, and other facial ornamentation.

Breakdown of the FACE.

1. The  Eyes The window of the soul. The eyes are the strongest emotion conveyor of the entire face they project deep emotion whether sadness or empathy, deep interest, sensuality, innocence, or project a certain flirtatious nature. The pigmentation of the iris varies from light brown to black, depending on the concentration of melanin in the iris pigment epithelium (located on the back of the iris), the melanin content within the iris stroma (located at the front of the iris), and the cellular density of the stroma. The appearance of blue, green, as well as hazel eyes,  results from the Rayleigh scattering of light in the stroma, a phenomenon similar to that which accounts for the blueness of the sky. Neither blue nor green pigments are ever-present in the human iris or ocular fluid. Eye color is thus an instance of structural color and varies depending on the lighting conditions, especially for lighter-colored eyes.

2. The Eyebrows The eyebrows define the eyes the umbrella of the eyes they define the whole look of the eye. The eyebrows are the most defining part of the overall look of the face especially the eye. The eyebrow is an area of thick, delicate hairs above the eye that follows the shape of the lower margin of the brow ridges of some mammals. Their main function is hypothesized to prevent sweat, water, and other debris from falling down into the eye socket, but they are also important to human communication and facial expression. It is not uncommon for people – women in particular – to modify their eyebrows by means of hair addition, removal, makeup, tattoo, or piercings.

3. The  Nose A beautiful nose must reflect overall harmony and proportion in relation to the other features and the face as a whole it is the centerpiece of the face. The visible part of the human nose is the protruding part of the face that bears the nostrils. The shape of the nose is determined by the ethmoid bone and the nasal septum, which consists mostly of cartilage and which separates the nostrils. On average the nose of a male is larger than that of a female.

4. The  Lips The most sensual part of the face defines the sexuality of the face as a strong focal point as the human eye. Full lips are much to be desired for a beautiful face. Lips are a visible body part of the face. Lips are soft, movable, and serve as the opening for food intake and in the articulation of sound and speech. Human lips are a tactile sensory organ and can be erogenous when used in kissing and other acts of intimacy.

5. The  Cheeks They contour the entire face, they are the structure that holds the face together when they are defined or full, in some faces they are more defined. Cheeks) constitute the area of the face below the eyes and between the nose and the left or right ear. They may also be referred to as jowls. “Buccal” means relating to the cheek. The area between the inside of the cheek and the teeth and gums is called the buccal pouch or buccal cavity and forms part of the mouth.

6. The chin or jawline Prominent jawline in men is universal and considers most attractive, in the female a small chin is much to be desired and most attractive. The chin is the lowermost part of the face. It tends to be more pointed and triangular in human females, while more square-shaped in human males.

7. The  Neck The grand part that holds up the face, it is lengthy in statue utterly divine in its objective to define the face. The neck is the part of the body that distinguishes the head from the shoulders blades.

Genetics: An Empirical Analysis of the “Wooly Hair” the tree to the heavens.

Our hair stands in awe of the Most High, the creator of all creation. The sunbeams of the golden fleece that raptures our skins (no matter the hue) and the heat crystalize the tones in wooly hair. What a fabulous creation we are. 
These photographs are the property of their respective owners.
In his book, “The Chemical Key to Black Greatness” American Biochemist, Carol Barnes, described melanin as, “a civilizing chemical that acts as a sedative to help keep the black human calm, relaxed, caring, creative, energetic and civilized.” Research also revealed that melanin enables black skin to actively interact with the sun, to produce Vitamin D from a biochemical substance, 7- dehydrocholesterol. The study also detected that melanin has spiritual dynamics as well as physical since it acts as a sensory ‘receptor’ and ‘transmitter’; communicating with cosmic energy fields in the vast universe converting light energy to sound energy and back. Dr. Richard King, MD, stated that “melanin, by its ability to capture light and hold it in a memory mode, reveals that blackness converts light into knowledge.”

Melanin refines the nervous system in such a way that messages from the brain reach other areas of the body most rapidly in dark people, the primary race. The abundance of melanin in our skin gives us genetic inferiority. We are physically stronger. Mentally more sound. Spiritually more connected.

Wooly hair is the tree that points to the heavens.
His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire; Revelation 1:14 KJV.

Our roots run long straight to the sky. Wooly hair can withstand heat at high temperatures.
‘Although there are no biochemical differences among black, Caucasian, and Asian hair types, there are differences in the hair morphology (8). Black hair appears elliptical or flattened in cross-section, whereas Caucasian hair is oval, and Asian hair round. The follicle of black hair is curved, in contrast to a straight follicle in Caucasians and Asians.’ – Callender, V. D., McMichael, A. J. and Cohen, G. F. (2004), Medical and surgical therapies for alopecias in black women. Dermatologic Therapy, 17: 164–176. doi:10.1111/j.1396-0296.2004.04017.x

Khumalo NP, Doe PT, Dawber PR, Ferguson DJP.What is healthy black African hair? A light and scanning electron microscopic study. J Am Acad Dermatol 2000: 43:814–820.
‘African hair is curly and frequently exhibits knots ‘However, increased evidence of wearing with some loss of the cuticular pattern was observed towards the tip of the nose in all 3 racial groups most extreme wearing, with complete loss of cuticular structure, was seen toward the tip of the hairs of the Caucasian subject with the most extended hair . However, the hair shafts of the African volunteers did exhibit structural damage with evidence of longitudinal fissures, resulting in the splitting of the hair shafts. The splitting was also associated with knot formation. Longitudinal cracks were not observed in the Caucasian or Asian hairs. It was also found that many of the black African hairs (approximately 40%) were fractured with no attached root.

‘The African hair shafts were enclosed by a well-preserved cuticle similar to that observed for the other racial groups. ‘The most significant feature was that the majority of the tips of the African hair had fractured ends …Similarly, the basal end also exhibited evidence of breakage in contrast to the Caucasian and Asian samples in which the majority of hairs had attached roots.’

‘From these observations, it could be proposed that any procedure that reduces knotting of hair and/or the need for combing would result in an increase in the length of the hair by reducing the incidence of breaks in the hair shafts.’

Konishi, S., (2008). Tied in rolled knots and powdered with ochre’: Aboriginal hair and eighteenth-century cross-cultural encounters. Borderlands, 7(2), 1-20. Through the influential work of the great taxonomer, Carolus Linnaeus,… Homo europaeus ‘yellow, brown, flowing’, Homo asiaticus ‘abundant black,’ and Homo after ‘black, frizzled’ (cited in Rosenthal, 2004: 2).

This eighteenth-century definition and conceptualization of African hair as ‘woolly’ intersected with slavery discourses which dehumanized the African body to justify its abject treatment. The Oxford English Dictionary indicates that this derogatory term signifying ‘the short, tightly-curled hair of Negroid peoples’ was first used in a runaway slave advertisement in 1697. This type of hair was also ascribed sexual connotations, according to Allan Peterkin, ‘frizzy’ hair was seen as ‘demonic, licentious, and public.’

… ‘Negro’ possessed ‘wool instead of hair,’ and that this difference, in concert with others concerning skin and facial features, suggested that they ‘appear to constitute a new species of man’ (in Diderot and d’Alembert, 1765, v. 11: 76).  uaresma, M. V., Martinez Velasco, M. A., & Tosti, A. (2015). Hair Breakage in Patients of African Descent: Role of Dermoscopy. Skin Appendage Disorders, 1(2), 99–104. http://doi.org/10.1159/000436981

In addition to these properties, the water content in African descent hair is slightly lower than in Caucasian hair, and the sebaceous glands often secrete a small amount of sebum, which has an uneven distribution along the shaft due to its spiral shape, leaving the hair with a dry appearance. M [17,20]

When we associate the term “Mixed Race Hair” we get a visual that it is wild, unruly, hard to tame hair. The curly, wavy, coiled or full-bodied curls, mostly the combination of different genetic factors that contributions to the texture of feel, the length, the volume, the plethora of different hair textures. the truth is mixed race hair has more ortho-cortical cells which make it less prone to breakage and damage then finely coiled hair from the scalp. However, the bottom strands are closer to the coily nature of an afro.

Mixed hair, curly or wavy is often referred to as “Good Hair,” All hair is good hair, it all was created by the Most High.

The great phenomenon of wooly hair, the spiral shaped, tightly coiled, excessive curly mass that tends to hold its shape and grows as a tree straight up on the head. Who are the recipients of such hair? The E1B1A gene carriers – the descendants are the a biologically related ancestors far beyond the african disapora. This is one topic that science has been perplexed by the origin of wooly hair. Geneticist will often say, “The genetic determinants of hair texture in humans are largely not found by science.” It’s either pleiotropic, and selection was for its research fails in comparision to the impact of genetically putting a stamp on its true origin. What genes of phenotypes put together has created such hair type? What is clear is that wooly hair been passed down from Adam to each generation after his existence.

With black hair the curl pattern is unique ranges from curly to coily. “

His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire;” Revelation 1:14 KJV. It refers to the Messiah as having hair white like wool.

Genetics: An Empirical Analysis of the “Melanated” Skin Color. The Golden Fleece of Beauty.

A skin that glistens in the sun, ranging from satin black to golden brown that is Melanated skin. Melanin is organic crystallized carbon, it actually runs through your blood, ravages your skin and was created by the Most High God. The dark nations possess it, although, they don’t want to own it, the white people try to put it in a bottle to manufacture it through tanning sprays and creams.
All photographs are the property of there respective owners.
Melaninwhich is Carbon, any of a class of insoluble pigments, found in all forms of animal life, that account for the dark color of skin.
According to Dr. Francis Cress Welling on pg 205, in her book “The Isis Papers:, stated, The phrase “Golden Fleece” is made up of two words associated with Black people: “gold,” denoting black or brown skin and “fleece,” denoting lambs wool or kinky hair. The search for the Golden Fleece becomes the search for melanin. J.D. Cirlot’s dictionary of symbols says that the Golden Fleece ” is one of the symbols denoting the conquest of the impossible or the ultra=reasonable.” For white-skinned peoples, it is impossible to produce melanin or golden brown or black.
There is a golden hue that radiates out from dark skin, it is present no matter how dark the hue is.

The subject of color to most is probably somewhat idiosyncratic. What we think scientifically and historically about the origins of ‘race’ and the complex ways that skin color has influenced our perception of one another. The effects of colorism and racism on society within various communities. Though modern conceptions of ‘white beauty’ have evolved and become progressively more artificial in recent decades, which have lead people to believe that having melanated skin is a curse and not a blessing. I must admit that it was very cathartic and endearing for me to write on this topic of “melanin.” Although, I didn’t want to appear to be a narcissist or presumptuous. I think when I first actually, thought of my skin color was when a friend compared me to a sunset, amazed at how the golden hues, brown, an orangey glow radiated from my skin. While others, always assumed that I was wearing pantyhose on my legs or foundation on my face, sorry no such thing that is the power of melanin. I believe that physical beauty is measured by your features and symmetry, not skin color. It’s really in the eye of the beholder literally. I have traveled the world, there are much beautiful dark and light woman the world over, all possess one common thing – their facial features are harmony together. So the theory that your skin color makes you attractive only is a fallacy. Not to be believed. The whole premise of a debate of light vs. dark is unsettling, ignorant, and not edifying the unity between women of all shades of brown. Willie Lynch created a prevalent method for teaching slaves divisive behavior and through colonization people around the world have adopted these self – denigrating issues that white skin is the best and anything that deviates from that theory is not good. Lynch supported division to keep the light slaves against the dark slaves to prevent rebellion and unity among blacks. Still, today that residue from the past has conditioned people around the world to adopt “white skin” as the best. This is a wide world problem not just by black people but many nations face this reality daily in America, India, Africa, Latin American, South America, Brazil, Dominican Republic, the West Indies, Mexico, Puerto Rico, and Cuba just to name a few. In these countries the lighter you are the more beautiful you are perceived as, the smarter, and the nicer. The Darker you are the more you are perceived as a menace to society, evil, and ugly. These stereotypes are far from the truth, people of color are still suffering from strong delusional thinking based on skin color. Most feel that a white person has attained a status, reached a level of success because they are the progenitors of the European standard of beauty that dark-skinned people could never measure up to. As for the white (Aryan/Nordic) men and women, they don’t have to try, they woke up in privilege. They have been born this way. They have become gods in their own eyes.

Two benefits of having Melanated skin:

1. BLACK DON’T CRACK! The most celebrated quality of possessing melanated skin is its uncanny ability to be anti-aging, whereas, dark skin shows less visible signs of aging when compared to white skin. Dark-skinned people tend to look younger than their chronological age.

2. Protection from the sun, melaninated skin has a natural SPF.

The Fitzpatrick scale (above) is a numerical classification that was created in the 1970s by Thomas Fitzpatrick, an American dermatologist. The study of human skin color that underlines the categories of skin color where it relates to how it measures in terms of being exposed to the sun. It identifies that darker skin is less likely to develop skin cancer when being exposed to the sun.

In his article, “Why the sun is good for Afrikan people”, Dr. Kwame Osei says,

This lack of melanin cover explains why Europeans/White people especially the albino whites burn in the sun and in the worst circumstances turn pink and get skin cancer- hence why they need to wear sunscreen because their white skin has been damaged by the sun’s UV rays because their pineal gland, an organ between the eyes has been calcified. What this means in effect that they cannot generate energy from the sun’s UV rays due to their lack of melanin. Melanin in its most concentrated form is black. It is black because its chemical structure will not allow any energy to escape once that energy has come in contact with it. This gives us an insight and shows that melanin dominant people do not require the same amount of minerals and nutrients in their diet as people with less melanin.(modernghana.com)
Nearly all black and brown skins are beautiful, but a beautiful white skin is rare. Where dark complexions are massed, they make the whites look bleached-out, unwholesome, and sometimes frankly ghastly. I could notice this as a boy, down South in the slavery days before the war. The splendid black satin skin of the South African Zulus of Durban seemed to me to come very close to perfection. The white man’s complexion makes no concealments. It can’t. It seemed to have been designed as a catch-all for everything that can damage it. Ladies have to paint it, and powder it, and cosmetic it, and diet it with arsenic, and enamel it, and be always enticing it, and persuading it, and pestering it, and fussing at it, to make it beautiful; and they do not succeed. But these efforts show what they think of the natural complexion, as distributed. As distributed it needs these helps. The complexion which they try to counterfeit is one which nature restricts to the few–to the very few. To ninety-nine persons, she gives a bad complexion, to the hundredth a good one. The hundredth can keep it–how long? Ten years, perhaps. The advantage is with the Zulu, I think. He starts with a beautiful complexion, and it will last him through. And as for the Indian brown–firm, smooth, blemishless, pleasant, and restful to the eye, afraid of no color, harmonizing with all colors and adding a grace to them all–I think there is no sort of chance for the average white complexion against that rich and perfect tint. — Mark Twain, Skin Deep – Complexions
The Black skin is not a badge of shame, but rather a glorious symbol of national greatness. — Marcus Garvey
The recipients of the phenomenon we know as “MELANIN” are the people, that are referred to as Black, Colored, African, Sub-Saharan,  and African American.

In his book, “The Chemical Key to Black Greatness” American Biochemist, Carol Barnes, described melanin as, “a civilizing chemical that acts as a sedative to help keep the black human calm, relaxed, caring, creative, energetic and civilized”. Research also revealed that melanin enables black skin to actively interact with the sun, to produce Vitamin D from a biochemical substance, 7- dehydrocholesterol. The study also detected that, melanin has spiritual dynamics as well as physical, since it acts as a sensory ‘receptor’ and ‘transmitter’; communicating with cosmic energy fields in the vast universe converting light energy to sound energy and back. Dr. Richard King, MD, stated that, “melanin, by its ability to capture light and hold it in a memory mode, reveals that blackness converts light into knowledge”.

Melanin refines the nervous system in such a way that messages from the brain reach other areas of the body most rapidly in dark people, the first race. The abundance of melanin in our skin gives us genetic inferiority. We are physically stronger. Mentally more sound. Spiritually more connected. High absorption of vitamins, full-color range, taste full favor of food, and more intelligence. Melanin (Carbon) is essential to brain, nerve, organ function it can be found in every part of the body where cells are to reproduce and regenerate. Let’s not forget the anti-aging effects of melanin in dark skin, on the average a white skinned person will look much older than their black counterpart.

“ Melanin (Carbon) is the fundamental unit of the universe and exist in four forms: Cosmic, Planetary, plant kingdom (chlorophyll) and animal kingdom melanin. Melanin is black (carbon) because its chemical structure allows no energy to escape.. making black melanin the super absorber of energy and light. Melanin is found in almost every organ of body and is necessary in order for the brain and nerves to operate, the eyes to see, and the cells to reproduce. Melanin can rearrange its chemical structure to absorb all energy across the raiant energy spectrum (i.e. sunligh, Xirays, music, sound, radar, radio waves etc) The black human can charge up his/her melanin just by being in the sun or around the right type of musical sounds or other energy sources. Our body is electrical, currents of nerves sending signals through our brain daily. Melanin itself, on a philosophical plane, is a black chemical/biological door through which the life force of African spirituality passes in moving from the spirit to the material realm. You will we learn to accept and embrace the fact that Black is not only beautiful but it comes in a variety of different shades, textures, and tones; None of which is better or worse than the other. Proof of a creator? You exist and there are no copies of you anywhere. The facial features of a person of color is more pronounced than any other nation around the world. Did you know that many white people in the Americas tan their skin and are vast consumers of tanning bronzing gels etc. Just the other day I saw a white woman at my local market she was as dark as me, but with a orangey tint to her face. So with the lie that states that dark skin is less desired but the hate is more a product of self – hatred and taught behavior, then a total social preference. There is a reason we have been conditioned this way.

As has its advantages dark skin so does dark eyes which can see full color range as it is exactly it is.

My conversation with Pascal, a professional photographer from France.
Q: What is it like to work with models/people of color?
Pascal: Let me start with you.. photographing you and applying makeup to your face what a pleasure, you have the most beautiful eyes, face, and skin. Up close your so physically beautiful, physically compelling, I’m hypnotized by your good looks. Your skin always so soft, smooth and creamy like churned butter, I love your light skin color. Woman of color are the most beautiful creatures on earth, the skin is so deep and rich, they are the best to work with.
Q: Do you have a preference light or dark?
Pascal: No but in my work, the darker the girl is the more light she becomes to the camera like a rare occurrence with the view. Dark skin really is the best.

Carbon is really the correct word.. but Melanin is the black man’s ace and intelligence. Our skin has the highest amount of Melanin of all nations, also, This is the color of the Savior. And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters. Revelation 1:15-17 KJV

Our Skin

Basking in the hot sun for hours While becoming sun-kissed to perfection The salt of our tears raped our face As we picked cotton in the southern heat No other skin could take such a beating Like the Melanin in our skin. Our skin is just like butter burned to make you want to devour it Symbolic of the melting of dark chocolate How sweet it is Some are like coffee with milk while others are like hot chocolate Only one term to describe the beauty and dimension of the colors of our skin Resplendently Like the melanin in our skin.

Teach your children to love their darkness.

4 things the other nations COVET from us.
1. Lips
So they say that Angelina Jolie made our lips famous? Way before there was Angelina, there were our ancestors that possessed those ancient lumps we call lips, yes full and luscious all the way. Now today with millions of collagen injections being dished our annual for something we have been blessed with. 
2. Darker Skin
Who said only white porcelain skin was all the rage with millions of dollars being spent annually on tan salons, bronzing powders, and spray tans all to achieve our sun-kissed skin. 
Our melanin is a gift from the Most High God. So cherish it.
3. Our Round bottoms
It is no secret that black women are known for their big bottoms, but we were born with it. Butt implants have become the norm like brushing your teeth, and many women have become disfigured by infecting fat into their bottoms. Hmmm, wouldn’t have been nice to be born with it.
5. Black Men
Truly the most desired men by all nations. The Greatest Gift to the black woman is the black man. So what if so or you are rough around the edges but so are we black women. Everyone can see your greatness, you are our Kings. So raise and love the black woman back. The other nations may love you, but your roots are with the black woman.

5 Great things about melanin-ated people. 

1. Some of the greatest Inventors and Innovators.
Despite such impressive credentials, black people are the innovators and inventors of just about everything on earth from toothpaste to electricity.
2. The Melanin in our Skin.
Beyond a shadow of a doubt, black don’t crack, that contributes to our anti-aging, but more importantly, the high concentration of melanin has its benefits such as protection from the sun and produces our Vitamin D.
3. Our hair is unique and fascinating.
Everyone else grows fur. Black hair can maintain its state, whether it be kinky, coily, relaxed, fro, or cornrows can keep its shape in the harsh climates in the world.
4. A black man body is superior, genetically stronger than that of any other race.
It has been proven that throughout history that the black man has built the constructs of building and foundations for many nations, including America through slavery, etc.
5. A black woman’s features are highly coveted.
Our skin and facial features are highly coveted by other races, such as our lips, booty, and skin. Many Nordic/Aryan races have emulated our features in mainstream media.

Fair is Lovely : The Anti-Darkness in India

One manifestation of white supremacy is the use of whiteness as the standard of beauty. When whiteness (pale skin) is considered superior, white people are considered more attractive by definition and ifs the appearance of people of other races deviates from that standard, they are considered ugly. Lisa Wade Ph.D., “When whiteness is the standard of beauty” article on societypages.org

When the white European male sets the standards the world follows, this doesn’t make it true but creates an illusion. To speak of a reality where light skin, light eyes, and tall slender bodies are presented as the benchmarks of European dogma a spectacle of breathtaking provincialism – “The universal standard of beauty“ It universalizes the concept of whiteness to epitomize beauty around the world. It suggests, perversely, and seriously, dictates what is beautiful and what is not.

In the land of Vivid Colors and Exquisite Architecture, where the 5th largest film industry in the world “Bollywood” thrives with its wholesome view on sexuality, there lies just beneath the surface a dilemma of “Colorism” and “Shadeism” which are problematic concepts where light skin is more favorable and darker skin is inherently less attractive. This concept or belief has turned the skin lightening epidemic through the advertising campaign of “Fair is Lovely” into a billion dollar industry. Where did this begin? Through colonization by Great Britain in the 17th century, where dark-skinned Indians were conditioned to believe that having light skin was a prized possession. India’s skin lightening industry is estimated to be nearly a billion dollar industry. Fairness is a booming industry. Around 75% of woman and only 25% of men say that they use fairness creams to lighten their skin.  Light skin was also associated with status, attractiveness, and desirability. The “Unfair and Lovely” campaign is debunking the myths of Shadeism and promotes unity among the darker women and girls the world over, they express their personal challenges with confronting the Isms: Colorism and Shadeism. Way to Go ladies! #unfairandlovely

Meet the beautiful Trina Moitra, who is more than a pretty face, she possesses a kind and loving character. She is a senior branding consultant and the Head of Marketing at Convert.com. She loves delving into different cultures and is passionate about beauty without boundaries or inhibitions.

Q: On the color chart in India, what are you considered? Light or Dark?

Trina: I am considered somewhere between fair and very fair.

Q. How has your skin color affected your life? In your career, dating, or marriage if that applies.

Trina: I can’t think of an instance where my skin color has helped me in my career. But being “presentable” overall definitely has. Even in online settings where people don’t see my face to face, is well put together has won me a distinctive edge. In the marriage market though complexion still rules for the majority of people. If you’re “fair” and have clear skin, that’s literally half the battle won. Especially for women.

Q: Do you think that “Colorism” started with the caste system in India?

Trina: Not really. I think colorism is the persistent residue of colonial dominance in India. You won’t see too many of the Millennials subscribing to this mindset of “fairer is better.” They are open and accepting of all skin tones and complexions. But Generation X in the country is still besotted with white. I know it sounds racist, but in my personal opinion, that is one of the main reasons why Indians have continued to revere the white skin. As the old colonial wounds heal from the psyche of the nation, this obsession too shall pass. As a darker skinned race, we will always find being fair fascinating just because it is so different. But it will be a matter of curiosity or aesthetic appeal and not a yardstick to measure potential or worthiness with.

Q: How are the darker women treated in India?

Trina: As I discussed, the Millennials are more into how to clear someone’s skin is and not the tone of the skin or the complexion. But in the marriage market, very dark-skinned women may have a harder time finding someone suitable.

Q: Why do you think there is a skin lightening epidemic across the world?

Trina: I think this epidemic is very much restricted to the East. As far as I know, most Africans who still reside in the country respect their ebony skin. They even dye their palms a pitch black during weddings and the darker a lass, the more beautiful she is. I find this fantastic and very much, worth emulating. Skin lightening is generally done because of two reasons: – To be more beautiful. I get this because most of the glitz and glamour in the world can still be traced back to the West. Power is continuously associated with countries like the US and the standard of beauty there is primarily porcelain skin, blonde hair, and a svelte figure. People who are mostly in the public eye want to conform to this standard. – To be more worthy. This is more so a trait in races that have been oppressed by Caucasians. The taking on of the “white” skin is, in a way being equal to the status of those who have always exerted control over the lives of the darker skinned individuals. This might actually be an unconscious motivation.

Q: How much annually is spent in your country on skin lightening?

Trina: The skin lightening market in India is projected to touch US$31.2 billion by 2024.

Q: How old were you when you discovered that the lightness of your skin would play a critical part in your success in life?

Trina: Around 16 or 17, I realized that I had a subtle advantage, but I didn’t really feel that my peers who weren’t light skinned were disadvantaged.

Q: Are there any Bollywood actresses that speak against colorism? If so, what do they say about it?

Trina: The two divas who come to mind are Priyanka Chopra and Nandita Das. While Priyanka Chopra speaks holistically about being enough and treasuring one’s authentic self, Nandita Das is more vocal about the trend of skin lightening. She has appeared in several “Stay Unfair” campaigns that are a rebuttal to the “Fair & Lovely” advertisements advocating skin lightening products.

Q: Do you think parents are responsible for teaching their children that they are special no matter their skin color? What did your mother teach you? What would you teach your future daughter?

Trina: ABSOLUTELY. Parents need to take some time away from grilling their children about studies and achievements and instead focus on ensuring they know that they are enough – just the way they are. The works of experts like Marisa Peer show that a sense of belonging, a positive frame of mind and unshakable faith in oneself drive success in life. Not how many hours a child studies.

Q: What advice would you give to darker Indian girls about skin color issues?

Trina: Do you really crib about the fact that there are purple flowers? A flower – regardless of its hue – is treasured because of its scent and its uplifting qualities. And a purple flower blooms big and bold, even though a white rose may be right beside it. There are some critical lessons in these analogies. A. We are unique, just because we are “we.” And we need to add to who we are with our qualities, not necessarily our appearance. B. Just because someone else is fair or light skinned shouldn’t detract from your glory. They have a different life path. Maybe their complexion suits them as yours will surely serve your unique challenges and gifts. C. If you want to lighten your skin, do it because you genuinely love the concept of “being fair.” Not because you feel you have to conform to a pseudo-standard of beauty. If it brings you joy (and doesn’t hurt your health) it is fair game – pun intended.

Q: What do you think about the fair and lovely campaign in India?

Trina: Won’t lie. I fell for it in my college years. Even though I am already light skinned. The Fair and Lovely campaigns don’t really fight above board. They link complexion to having a more comfortable life. Which is valid to some extent but who wants to keep pandering that destructive notion. If they really limited their portrayal to being light skinned for the sake of being light-skinned, not many people would pay attention! Good marketing, lousy message.

Q: What is the answer to “Colorism” in India?

Trina: The only answer is to make sure everyone – not just girls – understands that they are enough. Healthy self-esteem is essential. The next step would be to encourage positive body brands like Dove, which are working to reinforce the statement that beauty comes in all shapes, sizes, and colors. Life’s too short to live with cultural baggage. Dump it already.
