Embrace Yourself!

by DEE
(Dark skinned black people)

On Monday I celebrated another year of my life! I am thankful to still be among the living but today while driving to work I was stung by a topic being discussed on the radio about the negative perceptions of dark skinned black people.

My first reaction was DAMN when will this SHIT go away!!!

I have had to deal with these stereo types all my life!!! I refuse to let anyone dictate who I am, how I should be or how I look because my skin is dark. As a matter of fact I’m damn glad I am dark, especially when I see some of my lighter friends now.

GOOD BLACK DON’T CRACK!! But it is sad to me we are still so small minded we are still making our children color conscious.

When will it end-mature adults? Then, when will we as blacks start embracing each other for our character and not the hue of our skin?

Unfortunately, we are our worst enemies. When will we wake up and embrace everyone, the dark, the light, the caramel, the pecan, the yellow, the chocolate, etc.? Are we our worse enemies?!??

Welcome and Hotep Dee!

Why are we our worst enemy? We are our worst enemy due to slave mentality which many have not overcome. Our system was created to keep the illusion Whites and their descents were superior. This was done because their egos were afraid of original superior race of dark skinned people, the original people whose thoughts created everything.

Their white ancestors, the creators of our system, were cave dwellers coming from caves - barbarians. Keep in mind they raped Africa by stealing, destroying, and changing the African truth to meet their needs. Hence, Right Knowledge (truth) was lost for many. Is this because the ego makes us destroy anything that makes us uncomfortable or anything that creates feelings of insecurity - jealousy?

I found Oneness through the melanin in my skin. Before they knew about DNA, I was utilizing right knowledge (information) passed to me through melanin via my inner voice. I learned to listen when I was young. I know much of my knowledge comes from my African ancestors and now my understanding of oneness, not their educational system.

What many do not understand is the system had to change to keep us from finding our people who can naturally tap right knowledge through their melanin – DARK SKINNED PEOPLE!! There is no better way to keep control of a system than to ensure people do not know the truth about Self and their roots by reversing the truth and replacing it with lies. Why pass on these lies?

The TRUTH is dark skinned people were/are the creators of civilization. Their descents are natural survivors who can naturally survive resonating with nature! Everything of value created in ancient times was created by dark skinned people. I’ll stop here because I have no kind words for this subject. There are many who need to WTFU.
