Simply put melanin denial is unhealthy. It is unhealthy know melanin exists and yet act as though it does not exist. Pretending to ignore melanin is worth more than gold makes the mental health issue worse. Healthy individuals who know melanin exists and is worth more than gold will reassess themselves accordingly. Melanin’s dollar value means how we relate to the world around us has changed.
On the Pigment of the Negro’s Skin and Hair
Melanin was first identified as the choroid coat of the eye by Bartholmeo Bizio. Subsequently, the chemical was identified to be the primary ingredient in the ink of cephalopods, most notably sepia officinalis, the common cuttlefish. Over one-hundred twenty-five years ago, in July 1896, JOHN J. ABEL, M.D., AND WALTER S. DAVIS, S.B. published a paper entitled “ON THE PIGMENT OF THE NEGRO’S SKIN AND HAIR” in the Journal of Experimental Medicine. They were the first to connect the chemical in human skin and hair that gives it its physical appearance to the chemical melanin. Similarly, it has been six years since we first observed melanin is worth more than gold, silver, platinum, palladium, rhodium and coltan combined in March 2014. Those are nothing but facts. Denial of the facts regarding melanin is what we call Melanin Denial. Melanin Denial is unhealthy and a mental health issue.
Despite the fact over 365,000 scholarly articles exist regarding melanin, a continued effort is being made to deny its existence among the general public. After first posting melanin was worth more than gold I just went on about my business posting what I thought were the type of blog posts Keyamsha the Awakening was intended to provide. It was only in response to people claiming those of us with high levels of melanin in our skin were being killed for their melanin did the need emerge to challenge the false narrative of melanin.
Melanin Denial is unhealthy
Some might take this as directed at people of a certain phenotype. Melanin denial is mainly affecting people of a certain educational level, primarily college educated. They have the most access to media outlets. They also seem to have the most information at their disposal. Highly educated people also decide what information is distributed to the rest of us. Yet with all the information at their disposal they refuse to apply it wisely. Why are media outlets denying melanin’s existence and it is worth more than gold?
Continued melanin denial is unhealthy. It takes mental effort to deny the existence of melanin. Doing so while melanin is subjected to intense scientific scrutiny indicates a mental health issue at work. Melanin being worth more than gold brought to my awareness a psychological warfare campaign/information operation was being waged against people with high levels of melanin in their skin.
