The Rapper Extraordinaire

With such a Global market, the Phenomenon of Hip-Hop began in the 1970s with a host of talented rap-artists who spit out lyrical rhymes like nobody’s business. A group that emerged from this genre is the infamous Sugarhill Gang and many more who rapped about the hardships in the inner city. Through the years, Hip Hop has lost its luster and became a catalyst to the promotion of riches, promiscuous women, drugs, fame, sin, and materialism. It is encouraging to see a trailblazer emerge spreading the truth while acknowledging the Most High God of Israel.

Meet the handsome and talented 38-year-old, Canadian Rap Artist/businessman, Akshun Man, hailing from Montreal who spits out rhythms like nobody’s business.

What is your ancestry?

My family is of Cape Verdean / Angolan ancestry. I am an Israelite.

When did you come into the knowledge of who you are (as an Israelite) in the Most High? and how did that affect your life?

I came into the knowledge of self through a very long process of just studying self (and others which is all one anyway), the Word and through art, poetry in hip-hop form to be more precise. It affected my life in every way. It basically revealed who I indeed was, created in the image and likeness of the True and LIving Most High God which just makes life clearer, more peaceful, purposeful and fulfilling. Operating from that state just makes life way smoother going with the universal law as opposed to going against it through ignorance.

What advice would you give to young aspiring rap artists? or tips on starting their label?

I would say to love God with all your being. Trust and have Faith in Him and nothing else. Never give up on their dreams, believe in yourself and work harder than everybody else. Selah!

Does Colorism or Racism exist in Montreal? If so, what has been your experience?

Yes Racism exists pretty much everywhere in the world I think or almost at least but especially in 1st world countries indeed, so my personal experience is that in Montreal, its only white people touching money and fame but it ain’t even that much. It’s rare to see a person of a different ethnicity prosper without conforming somewhat to the system which is racist by default, so basically, people sell out their own people every day but over here it’s really not much it’s so petty it’s disgusting.

As a light-skinned male what obstacles or racism have you faced? And how did you deal with it?

Well growing up here was somewhat of an identity crisis, and you never really fit in anywhere, so I ended up developing myself into a very independent man, solitary at times but not lonely and very self-sufficient. How I dealt with it was through a powerful sense, knowledge, and understanding of self. Like the Great, Bob Marley said, ” I’m not on the white side, I’m not on the black side, I’m on God side.”

How do you feel about dark-skinned women and how are they treated in your neighborhood?

I love dark-skinned women, probably the most, but it is unfortunate how a lot of them are thinking its a shame nowadays. I guess from my humble perspective it seems like for so long the dark-skinned woman has been under and poorly represented in society to the point, where now they just doing all kind of stuff that is outside of their characters just for social acceptance. I see a lot of them date white guys, smoke cigarettes and do drugs. They live how white people live only to gain some kind of acceptance but at the same time they win recognition from that side is the same time, they lose respect and honor from people like me on this side.

Do you think men pay to much attention to what a woman looks like physically? What advice would you give to a man only looking for sex, not marriage?
Society in general definitely over-emphasizes physical appearance over moral or spiritual beauty. The advice I would give a man who only pays attention to physical occurrences of a woman, I would tell him that many demons have presented themselves through some of the most seductive women, so I would def ask him to be careful lol. For the man who only wants sex, I would tell him he has some growing up to do. A wise man once said, “He who finds a wife finds a good thing.”
What about a woman makes her virtuous?
The application of Virtue: 1 Humility. 2 Kindness. 3 Patience. 4 Diligence. 5 Charity. 6 Temperance. 7 Chastity. The more of these virtues manifest in her character, the more virtuous she is considered (and attractive ha).
Tell me something that no one knows about you?
Nobody knows I am immortal.

Dilemma 3 – "Racism"

What do they say we are….

NIGGERS * SPICS *COONS * DARKIES * BLACK * UGLY * MULATTOS *FEEBLE MINDED * UNFIT * IMBECILES * IMMORAL * CRIMINAL * CATTLE * SLAVES NEGROES * AFRO THIS OR THAT *MONKIES * SAVAGES * COLORED *JUNGLE BUNNIES * DIRT *JIGABOOS * ANIMALS *WET BACKS * SPOOKS *SAMBOO * ASIATIC BLACK MIXED * BIRACIAL* MULTIRACIAL * BURNT And so forth… Code words used to establish slavery.

The differentness of races, moreover, is no evidence of superiority or of inferiority. This merely indicates that each race has certain gifts which the others do not possess. — Carter G. Woodson

Racism is truly the largest “Elephant in the room” the progenitor of hatred and slavery. It is the grandfather of Darkism and Colorism, The Apex of a belief system that one race is superior to the rest: animosity toward other races: a profound prejudice against black people or other ethnic groups based on color. Its core belief that people of different races have different qualities and abilities, and that some races are inherently superior or inferior to the other races. Slavery in America was the biggest catalyst for this kind of hate. First, let me demystify the proverbial reference to race. I call it – “the powerful illusion.” For the theory of race to exist there has to be a superior race and inferior race for the ideal of separation. The theory of race is a man-made system of classification created to division among people to classify people into certain groups. Classifying humans into various racial groups including a selection process of what color fits into what category. Is it redundant to say the least, many have brought into the lie? Think about it can we as people draw any scholarship on race based on what one looks like. Race a group of humans which the populations have divided into a group based on physical characteristics. Biologically speaking, traits are inherited non-concordantly through our ancestors, which means they are inherited independently. If we were to go on genetics alone there really isn’t a single genetic trait that distinguishes one race from another, even with varying degrees of melanin in the skin. Racism is an attitude aborted believing in a man made the illusion. If people that don’t know who they are they will believe, live, and thrive off of anything. You were sold to the nations, not for your destruction: but because ye moved God to wrath, ye were delivered unto the enemies. Baruch 4:6

The biggest progenitor of racism was slavery.

There is a massive paper trail noting slavery in the United States of America but what about the four corners of the world where it all begin, that was similar to other forms of servitude practice where our people were kept enslaved. Like the Arabian, European slavery marketing of our people, which may be brutal of them all, like castration of young male genitals to make them eunuchs. The buck breaking and brutal rape of black women and children. The slave trade was in operation in the Arab world, Western Asia, Africa, and Europe beginning during the 19th century. The History of Arab Slavery in Africa by Owen Alik Shahadah (www.arabslavetrade.com) states in the relations and perfections section, ” Africans in the Indian Diaspora. The Afro-Arab relationship was riddled with complexities lined in a cultural nexus. And there is no doubt that racial discrimination against people of African origin was a hard reality. There is an escalation of racism as a casual association with Black Skin and Slave was made. And considering the era in which Islam emerged, it is therefore even more astounding and revolutionary to find such a strong tone of racial harmony and equality.”

The fate of black people from 1933 to 1945 in Nazi Germany and in German-occupied territories ranged from isolation to persecution, sterilization, medical experimentation, incarceration, brutality, and murder. However, there was no systematic program for their elimination as there was for Jews and other groups. Hitler wanted to ensure that white women did have children with black soldiers. Children birthed by German women and black men were often referred to as “Rhineland Bastards.” Rhineland bastard (German: Rheinland bastard) was a derogatory term used in Nazi Germany to describe multiracial children with Caucasian, German mothers who had been fathered by Africans serving with French colonial troops during the Occupation of the Rhineland after World War I. According to Nazi racial theory, these children were considered inferior to Aryan children and consigned to compulsory sterilization. I grew up in Germany and was often referred to as “War Baby” although it was because of my light skin, long hair, facial features, and ability to speak the language, I was treated as such. So we have established that most Germans like most Nordic people don’t like African people, this brings me to a discussion about…..

Adolf Hitler

Hitler was a German politician who was the leader of the Nazi Party, the chancellor of Germany from 1933 to 1945, and Führer (“leader”) of Nazi Germany from 1934 to 1945. As dictator of Nazi Germany, he initiated World War II in Europe with the invasion of Poland in September 1939 and was a central figure of the Holocaust. Hitler remarked that “The Passing of the Great Race or the Racial Basis of European by Madison Grant was his bible. The difference between the Jew and Aryan is as insurmountable as that between black and white…. German has set a pattern which other nations must follow.

“On December 6, 1913, a team led by German archaeologist Ludwig Borchardt discovered a sculpture buried upside-down in the sandy rubble on the floor of the excavated workshop of the royal sculptor Thutmose in Amarna. A year later the Nefertiti bust was put on display in Berlin, countering the “English” Tut with a German appropriation of old glamour. Throughout the 20th century’s upheavals, the bust remained in German hands. It was revered by Hitler (who said, “I will never relinquish the head of the Queen”), hidden from Allied bombs in a salt mine and coveted by East Germany throughout the Cold War. Today it draws more than 500,000 visitors annually to Berlin’s Neues Museum.” reference: http://www.history.com/topics/ancient-history/nefertiti
Is it that beauty transcends even racism? Or was Hitler indeed, a racist?

I will provide excerpts from Hitler’s Book “Mein Kampf” (My Struggle) where he clearly speaks his disrespect and disdain for Negroes (Black People) even going as far as to call us “Half Apes”, Blacks too were thrown in Concentration Camps and summarily sterilized because Hitler did not want Blacks having babies with German White Women. How Hitler really viewed blacks: Hitler skips the first recorded sin in the bible of Eve taking a bite out of some fruit tree to declare race mixing between blacks and his pure Aryan white blood was “The original sin of humanity” (MKp.624) Marcus Garvey said the same thing he believes in the purity of the negro race and purity of the white race” (Race First by Tony Martin p.22) Garvey was against miscegenation. And hated rich blacks marrying poor whites. The hybrid organization that would take over from the UNIA would be the NOI. Hitler was appalled at society, allowing blacks to become a lawyer, teacher, even a pastor. He thought it is criminal lunacy to keep on drilling a born half-ape ..while members of the highest culture-race must remain in unworthy positions” ( MKp.430) Hitler believed that the Blackman shouldn’t be allowed to keep his so-called “****** nation” Hitler also stated: “This world belongs only to the whole forceful man and not to the weak half man” ( MK p.257).
Hitler viewed the Blackman like Hollywood viewed the Blackman in The Birth of a Nation. In that woman, the Blackman’s eyes grow big in lust for a white woman. Hitler thought of us as a big King Kong gorilla. “Systematically these black parasites of the nation defile our inexperienced young blond girls and thereby destroy something which can no longer be replaced in this world” (MK p.562).
If Hitler would have won the war, the fate of the Blackman in this world has been slavery and cremation. On a scale of 1-10, his abuse would have been 10, but between 1619-1960’s in America, our miss treatment was a steady 8. I would invite curious students to read Hitler because he has so many relatives here in America like Hoover, The FBI, The KKK, etc. We prevent repeats of history by understanding our past.-(Austin, N.D.) The Nazis’ obsession with racial purity and eugenics was provoked and intensified in 1918, following Germany’s defeat in World War I. Under the terms of the peace treaty signed at Versailles, Germany was stripped of its African colonies and forced to submit to the occupation of the Rhineland. The deployment of African troops from the French provinces to police the territory incensed many Germans.
To many, it was the final humiliation that began with their 1918 defeat in the World War I. Germans complained bitterly in newspapers and propaganda films about African soldiers from the French colonial army having relations with their women. As soon as Hitler reoccupied the Rhineland in 1936, he retaliated by targeting black people living there. At least 400 mixed-race children were forcibly sterilized in the area by the end of 1937, while 400 others disappeared into camps Hitler thought that all people who weren’t blonde, blue-eyed, light-skinned and Germanic were inferior. This included Jews, Gypsies, anyone from the Middle East, Asians and black people. He was very bitter and unsportsmanlike when he had to award the gold medal to Jesse Owens during the 1936 Berlin Olympics and refused to shake his hand.
Few blacks were living in Germany in the 1930s and 1940s, and of the few, many were rounded up and put in concentration camps and forcibly sterilized or subjected to medical experiments.

He believed in a perfect Aryan race. He admired blue-eyed, white, blond haired people. He had a warped interpretation of Darwin’s Origin of Species and theory of natural selection and believed that the traditional German man (Aryan) was the fittest and the strongest, therefore everything else – Jews, Blacks, Asians, etc would have to be eliminated. — Dr. Yehoshua Ben Ephraim, 

My people have suffered great injustices at the hands of the Aryan/Nordic race, better known as the white man; still today, the slavery mentality is again stirring the pot of racism. I could only imagine the pain my ancestors endured at the hands of the slave masters. This man is a king among the princes of bigotry and hatred.

He skinned my people, castrated my brothers, raped my sisters and brutally murdered my people in recorded numbers in the name of Satan. He is the Devil incarnate!

This devil goes by the name of “King Leopold II” The man who killed more than 10 million people, yet is not seen as hideous. His persona and methods of punishment were as cruel as Hitler. He slaughtered and brutally killed a lot of African people, a lot of them where castrate, raped, and skinned alive. King Leopold II is a person that many believe should be put in the same sentence with Hitler, Stalin and other dictators of the modern world. However, he is not. It is funny that he is rarely part of the history books, and not many people are known for his actions and deeds. Leopold II is mostly remembered as the founder of the Congo Free State, a country that is nowadays known as the Democratic Republic of Congo. But what many do not know is that Leopold murdered more than 10 million people in Congo and exploited the country and its sources. He donated most of his property to Belgium in order to preserve it. Leopold ruled from 1865 and for the next 44 years until his death.

To get a better understanding of King Leopold II and his thoughts, we distinguish some of the quotes he used during his speech in 1883. In the statement, Leopold tried to explain to “loyal” patriots in Belgium that what they do in Congo is rightful, and that they need to evangelize the “niggers.” Here are some quotes from the speech.

Teach the niggers to forget their heroes and to adore only ours. Never present a chair to a black that comes to visit you. Don’t give him more than one cigarette. Never invite him for dinner even if he gives you a chicken every time you arrive at his house; They know that to kill, to sleep with someone else’s wife, to lie and to insult is bad. Have the courage to admit it; you are not going to teach them what they know already; Your action will be directed essentially to the younger ones, for they won’t revolt when the recommendation of the priest is contradictory to their parent’s teachings. The children have to learn To obey what the missionary recommends, who is the father of their soul. You must singularly insist on their total submission and obedience, avoid developing the spirits in the schools, teach students to read and not to reason; Evangelize the niggers so that they stay forever in submission to the white colonialists, so they never revolt against the restraints they are undergoing. Recite every day – “happy are those who are weeping because the kingdom of God is for them.” Reference: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leopold_II_of_Belgium

Throughout history, it has been the inaction of those who could have acted, the indifference of those who should have known better, the silence of the voice of justice when it mattered most, that has made it possible for evil to triumph. —Haile Selassie

With almost 8 billion people around the world and many prototypes of what science calls a “human being,” The physical traits of mankind have stood out since the time of Adam and Eve, through colonialism and slavery, tried to define what prototype was superior to the other, this is where the theory of race classification was started around the globe. Every member of mankind is from a nation not a race of people.

Negro Types: African, Shemites,and Canaanites

Since the beginning of time, the Aryan race has always tried to define every race of the earth. They mark the white man as superior, genetically to all other races. Back in the 1800s a Swedish Botanist, Physician, and Zoologist Carl Linnaeus (The Father of Scientific Racism) are often called the Father of Taxonomy. His system for naming, ranking, and classifying organisms is still in extensive use today (with many changes). In Systema Naturae, his ideas on classification have influenced generations of biologists during and after his own lifetime, even those opposed to the philosophical and theological roots of his work introduced 5 levels under Homo Sapiens based initially on the bases of skin hue or color. 1) European 2) Asiaticus 3) American 4) Monstrous 5) Africanus. The premise was to make Caucasian, Europeans white superior to the rest of the races in the classification process. Another example of classification came from German Physician, Naturalist, Physiologist, and Anthropologist Johann Friedrich Blumenbach. He was one of the first to explore the study of mankind as an aspect of natural history. His teachings in comparative anatomy were applied to the classification of what he called human races, of which he determined there to be five. Blumenbach’s work included his description of sixty human crania (skulls) published initially been in fascicules as Decas cranium (Göttingen, 1790–1828). This was a founding work for other scientists in the field of craniometry. He divided the human species into five races in 1779, later founded on crania research (description of human skulls.) His teachings in comparative anatomy were applied to the classification of what he called human races. In which he determined there to be five: the Caucasian or white race, the Mongolian or yellow race, including all East Asians and some Central Asians, the Malayan or brown race, including Southeast Asian and Pacific Islanders, the Ethiopian or black race, including sub-Saharan Africans, the American or red race, including American Indians. Johann studies are yet another example of white supremacy around the world.

And thou, even thyself, shalt discontinue from thine heritage that I gave thee; and I will cause thee to serve thine enemies in the land which thou knowest not: for ye have kindled a fire in mine anger, which shall burn forever. Jeremiah 17:4 King James Version Bible We were left serving our enemies and their Gods. Where did we originate from, what was our backstory? The History of the Negro is the history of a people that have been mistreated, tortured, feared, deemed unworthy and not human, a people lacking understanding of who they are, every nation in the world there is a back story. How did we get into this predicament? It was through our disobedience to our creator. And through that disobedience we were … And the LORD shall bring thee into Egypt again with ships, by way of which I spake unto thee, Thou shalt see it no more again: and there ye shall be sold unto your enemies as bondmen and bondwomen, and no man shall buy you. Deuteronomy 28: 68. We came by ways of slave ships to the Americas and the 4 corners of the world. We did we suffer such an injustice? It was through our disobedience to the Most High God and not keep his commandments. It would appear that society wants us to forget “Slavery,” but they will go on about the Jewish Holocaust forever. Our Past is relevant to our future, it was our past that shows us the way. We woke up in a world where lightness, whiteness is valued around the world through lies, brain-washing, manipulation, racism, slavery misconceptions, and fallacies. Well known by the complexity of the Bywords they call us in a specific time and place. Let’s take “Black” for an example black relates to evil, a color that has no hue a color value that has no shade as a result of the absorption of nearly all light from all visible wavelengths. How long will we identify with these bywords? They call us Niggers, Darkies, Black, African, Mulatto, Half-breeds, Savages, and Coons all by words created during slavery to brainwash us and keep us captive from our true identity. The Trans – Atlantic Slave Trade in 1450 in 1619, America joined the Trans – Atlantic Trade. Over 100 million slaves lost their heritage their lives, which were the biggest massacre of people in the world.

 

White Privilege / Black Exclusion

They say we are lazy, but we built this country… They say we lack intelligence but have birthed some of the most brilliant minds. They say we can’t do it, but we have always overcome adversity… They say nothing but in the eyes of the Most High we are somebody…
Economical Freedom brings despair…. Black Wallstreet
Let’s stroll down memory lane, shall we? Who knew that Tulsa Oklahoma the home of the white evangelical Christian had so much history, that is black history. It birthed the term “Black Wall Street” in which black people had the power to lead in business developments. Tulsa Oklahoma is also notorious for the streets: Greenwood, Archer, and Pine, famous streets known in North Tulsa. After all, the popular group “The Gap Band” pinned the roads to form the band’s name. While in Tulsa, I would often hear the local speak about how great Tulsa was back then, they should take great pride in their once thriving communities. Although Tulsa is thriving now for some, it fails in comparison to what it once was. The store windows are often seeing adorning metal bars to keep the criminals out. There is a substantial distinction between North and South Tulsa. In south Tulsa predominately white, while north Tulsa is predominately black. In north Tulsa, most of the businesses have bars on the windows with the infiltration of gangs such as the blood and the crips from California they had no choice but to take this course of action to protect their properties. Now in 2017, the remnant of gangs is gone, but economic despair still lingers. The date was June 1, 1921, when “Black Wall Street,” the name was fittingly given to one of the most affluent all-Black communities in America, was bombed from the air and burned to the ground by mobs of envious whites. In a period spanning fewer than 12 hours, a once thriving 36-Black business district in northern Tulsa lay smoldering–a model community destroyed, and a significant African-American economic movement resoundingly defused. The night’s carnage left some 3,000 African Americans dead, and over 600 successful businesses lost. Among these were 21 churches, 21 restaurants, 30 grocery stores, and two movie theaters, plus a hospital, a bank, a post office, libraries, schools, law offices, a half dozen private airplanes, and even a bus system. As could have been expected the impetus behind it all was the infamous Ku Klux Klan, working in consort with ranking city officials, and many other sympathizers. http://www.blackwallstreet.freeservers.com/

In their self-published book, Black Wallstreet: A Lost Dream, and its companion video documentary, Black Wallstreet: A Black Holocaust in America!, the authors have chronicled for the very first time in the words of area historians and elderly survivors what really happened there on that fateful summer day in 1921 and why it happened. Wallace similarly explained to me why this bloody event from the turn of the century seems to have had a recurring effect that is being felt in predominately Black neighborhoods even to this day.

According to Nielson, African-Americans currently hold a buying power of $1 trillion, a number that’s estimated to reach $1.3 trillion by 2017 and they’re blowing a lot of those bills on cosmetics spending nine times more on ethnic- targeted beauty and grooming products than the general market. The black woman, in particular, spends an estimated $7.5 billion annually on beauty products, shelling and twice as much on skin care as their non-black counterparts. Yet they’re underserved by the cosmetics industry throughout history.
Resilient Receptive and Relevant: The African American Consumer
African Americans spend more than any other group: Watch 37 % more television Read 28% more financial magazines Buy 9 times more ethnic beauty and grooming products Make 8 times more shopping trips Spend 2 times as much time on personal hosted websites (source; Resilient Receptive and Relevant: The African American Consumer) Ask Men.

Caucasian the descendants of the Aryan/Nordic Race (white people) have inherent advantages around the world.

The white concession or privilege are provisos for the social order of opportunities that benefit Nordic/Aryan people (white people) in countries where the populous is predominately white beyond what is commonly experienced by non-white people under the same social, political, or economic circumstances. The term designate advantages that white persons know they are the recipients of during slavery it was quite apparent. This is unspoken prejudice mixed with a biased account of being fortunate to receive advancement due to skin color. The conclusion can be seen in the recipients private, relationships, professional, relational, educational, occupations, and personal contexts. The concept of white privilege is universal not limited to a particular place in the earth through colonization; it has spread to the four corners of the world.

1. White people earn more money

My interview with Daphne, she is a black hand model. Q: Do you think white people earn more money than black people? Daphne: Yes, I know the modeling does those things too. Q: Explain? Daphne: I make around 1000K for a photo shoot featuring my hands, while a lot of the white hand models make around 10000K per photo shoot. There is a lot of prejudice in the modeling industry, and that determines what we get as models. Families of color will soon make up a majority of the population, but most continue to fall behind whites in building wealth. In 1963, the average wealth of white families was $117,000 higher than the average wealth of nonwhite families. By 2013, the average wealth of white families was over $500,000 higher than the average wealth of African American families ($95,000) and of Hispanic families ($112,000) sources: Survey of Financial Characteristics of Consumers 1962 (December 31), Survey of Changes in Family Finances 1963, and Survey of Consumer Finances 1983–2013.

2. Favored more in terms of getting a job

My interview with Derrick, a black man that holds a masters degree in accounting. Q: With your master’s degree, has it been easy to find work? Derrick: No. They tell me I am over qualified or they have no work for me. Q: Why do you think that is? Derrick: Racism Q: Explain? Derrick: I went to a well-known bank. I was interviewing for a job as an account manager. There was another guy there interviewing as well for the same position. We struck up a conversation, he let me know he had only a high school education with no banking experience. One week later, I received a letter stating that I was not chosen for this particular position, that my resume would be kept on file. A month then, I went to the bank for some business, and I saw the same guy there, he was now the account manager. Now that is racism. In the article (www.cepr.net) titled, Has Education Paid Off for Black Workers? June 2013, by Janelle Jones and John Schmitt, they state that… Over the past three decades, the “human capital” of the employed black workforce has increased enormously. In 1979, only one-in-ten (10.4 percent) black workers had a four-year college degree or more. By 2011, more than one in four (26.2 percent) had a college education or more. Over the same period, the share of black workers with less than a high school degree fell from almost one-third (31.6 percent) to only about one in 20 (5.3 percent) … This article clearly shows that blacks are least hired among the other nations. 3. More likely have lesser sentences for crimes compared to black men. We live in a country where a white man will get less time for killing his black wife, than a black man robbing a liquor store. In an article in Wall Street Journal by Joe Palazzolo, “Racial Gap in Men’s Sentencing” February 14th, 2013 it declares that “Prison sentences of black men were nearly 20% longer than those of white men for similar crimes in recent years, an analysis by the U.S. Sentencing Commission found. That racial gap has widened since the Supreme Court restored judicial discretion in sentencing in 2005, according to the Sentencing Commission’s findings, which were submitted to Congress last month and released publicly this week.”

4. Depicted as saints in the media

They are depicted as saints, but a lot of crimes are perpetrated by whites as well. In the article “Mass Media in the White Man’s World” by Christy La Pierre (/web.stanford.edu) Poverty & Prejudice: Media and Race June 4, 1999, Christy states, “In the eyes of many minority groups, the mass media produced in the United States may be a reflection of Anglo views regarding non-Anglo communities. “The dominant culture must constantly strive to expand its hegemony while fending off challenges and interventions from the very classes and groups it seeks to subjugate,” (Split Image, African Americans in the Mass Media, pg. 6). In American society, by reproducing the ideological hegemony of the dominant white culture, the mass media help to legitimate the inequalities in class and race relations. Two underrepresented and misrepresented minorities in the media today and in the past are African-Americans and Latinos. African-Americans and Latinos have experienced discrimination for years through print news and entertainment television. Not surprisingly, both of these mediums have been dominated by the Anglo-culture and have therefore been structured to harbor the needs and communicate the ideas of this ruling class.” Our people have suffered the most brutal instances of hate crimes, not to mention black on black crime. Most recently, Dylann Roof, a 21-year-old white gunman who killed nine people at a historic African-American church in Charleston, South Carolina, on June 17th was arrested on June 18, 2015. He was immediately forgiven by the family members of the murdered. He is definitely a victim of white privilege no matter what they do to others. The police were concerned with his safety, other than his crime. Black men have been beaten, tortured, and killed endlessly in America and around the world for their color of skin. Where is the justice? A white woman poses as a black woman, funny how people of the other nations are forgiven of their bounty, in this case, Rachel Dolezal President of NAACP Chapter from Spokane Washington, the blacks embraced her, think about how often black women are ridiculed for trying to be white. Rachel may indeed be a great person with her exploits for the NAACP, but integrity in the public eyes is fundamental as well. Self-hatred among blacks You hate me, I hate me too… Black people always want to be something they are not, if they have one drop of Indian blood in them, then they are half Indian, we are what our fathers are, our lineage is determined by what nation our father is. It is like there is a lousy enigma with being associated with being black. Why should we hate the color of your skin? The texture of our hair? The Shape of your nose and lips. We are unique among the nations. Our looks are rare. The other countries are a carbon copy of each other in terms of beauty. If we were to embrace our naturalness, we would have the uniqueness everyone would desire.
We are the trendsetters, they copy our style. Through history and now today they want our full lips, our ample behinds, and tanned skin. Wake up people there is no reason to hate each other but appreciate our God-given Beauty. Are we suffering from amnesia? White supremacy, slavery, and colonization really did a job on the psyche of the people of color. They have convinced us that we are ugly, worthless, and inhuman. They copy our music, our style, our looks, our culture, but it is the self-hatred among ourselves that has become problematic or shall I say, “‘the elephant in the room.”
Every other nation of people supports their own in word and deed. With people of color (blacks) there is a defined perpetual race war with themselves. Even in this day and age, we are yet still slaves in our minds, actions, and deeds. We are the only people that look at light skin and dark skin among blacks as to different nationalities. I have seen many times – Light skin women speak against the more colored skin women as if they are dirt and not worthy and have witnessed darker skin women treat the lighter skin different because they felt they were better. So if the shoe fits wear it, this must stop we are all on the same ship sailing through life as the dark nation of people. To the average white person, we all are dark. The Truth I think the whole theory of light skin vs. dark skin is superfluous, stupid, and redundant. It lacks intelligence, perception, and common sense. Why does it matter? This whole thing was conceived through white supremacy, the enslavement of our people, it will never validate who we are as a people or nation.
Dark skin women are not placed on a pedestal, but light skinned black women are put on pedestals by other black people. In society, white women are the only ones that can claim ownership of the foundation worldwide. White supremacy is to blame having their images valued and celebrated over all other nations. Occasionally the mainstream will appreciate a none white woman or man this is on purpose. And it’s so sinister depriving a person of color of their privilege and immunity that uncritical folks can’t discern that they have been repeatedly told by media what they should prefer, who is beautiful, and what skin color is this internalized devaluation is a way of life. At the end of the day if your black, light, or dark, you will receive the same judgment. View by white standards, light by black standards.

My interview with Natasha, a fashion model

Q: Do you think white privilege exists? And if so, how has it affected your life? Natasha: Its really no secret in the fashion industry that white models are the most famous, there is a bias of white privilege as a white model. I got lots of work as a model and its because I am white. Q: How are the black models treated? Natasha: I think if it weren’t for affirmative action on behalf of black models, there would not be any black models. In a show in Paris over a year ago, I overheard a prominent designer (I won’t say his name) called black models “monkies” or colored tokens of appreciation not as someone really worthy to be a model. White women rule this industry, we got all the contracts, deals, and endorsements. Q: Is that a view that you share as well? Natasha: No not at all, you know I think you are one of the prettiest women with your beautiful eyes and I love your vanilla-ish- brownish skin. I also love Naomi Campbell; she is a lot darker than you. Q: Anything else you want to add about your white privilege? Natasha: Yes, I forgot to mention that with this privilege, I have been able to travel around the world and have my pick of me really wealthy men. I hope in time, things will change.

My interview with Bianca, a German, one of my best friends since childhood.

Q: Do you think “White Privilege” exists? Bianca: I think Racism exists that is really white privilege.  Q: Has white privilege affected your life? Bianca: There is also a hierarchy with white women, the blondes rule. So on that list with my dark hair and dark eyes, my place on the beauty list is at the end. I think that a lot of the privilege is based on your overall look like being skinny, but I noticed when I gained weight, no one looks at me anymore. Q: Do you think black women are judged more harshly because of skin color, other than white women? Bianca: Yes, in some cases, but I remember everyone was always in awe of you, so maybe it just with darker black women they experience so much more hatred. Q: As a white woman, honestly, how do people talk in presence as regards to black women? Bianca: There is still a lot of racism in the world, they speak against blacks all the time. The exception to the rule are the lighter ones who seem to get some praise, but in the trick bag, all are viewed as black with the same harsh treatments. Little do they know that the ones they despise are the very elect of God.

It seems as though the initial argument about slavery is the definite “racism” attached to it. But for centuries prior, my people have experienced racism. We as a people were in slavery before by several empires prior. Has anyone ever that of where the racism originated from? Or do we look into a narrow window never realizing we can open it all the way. What started the initial hate, the anger coming from a people (white people), hating us for no apparent reason just because of the color of our skin. Think about it what really makes the white woman next to you better? Is it because she is a few shades lighter, her hair is straighter, and her eyes are lighter? What really turned a skin color into a full out assault on black people? And this is the brown girl and boy dilemma.

Does the color of your skin give you inherent advantages around the world?

Through the adoption of racism – the white concession or privilege are provisos for the social order of privileges that benefit Nordic/Aryan people (white people) in countries where the populous is predominately white beyond what is commonly experienced by non-white people under the same social, political, or economic circumstances. The term designate advantages that white persons know they are the recipients of during slavery it was quit apparent. This is unspoken prejudice mixed with a bias account of being fortunate to receive advancement due to skin color. The conclusion can be seen in the recipients private, relationships, professional, relational, educational, occupations, and personal contexts. The concept of white privilege is universal not limited to a particular place in the earth through colonization it has spread to the four corners of the world.

1. White people earn more money… My interview with Daphne, she is a black hand model

Q: Do you think white people earn more money than black people? Daphne: Yes, I know in the modeling industry they do. Q: Explain ? Daphne: I make around 1000K for a photo shoot featuring my hands, while a lot of the white hand models make around 10000K per photo shoot. There is a lot of prejudice in the modeling industry, and that determines what we get as models.

2. Favored more in terms of getting a job… My interview with Derrick, a black man that holds a masters degree in accounting.

Q: With your masters degree has it been easy to find work? Derrick: No. They tell me I am over qualified or they have no work for me. Q: Why do you think that is? Derrick: Racism Q: Explain? Derrick: I went to a well known bank. I was interviewing for a job as a account manager. There was another guy there interviewing as well for the same position. We struck up a conversation, he let me know he had only a high school education with no banking experience. One week later, I received a letter stating that I was not chosen for this particular position, that my resume would be kept on file. A month later, I went to the bank for some business and I saw the same guy there, he was now the account manager. Now that is racism.

Families of color will soon make up a majority of the population, but most continue to fall behind whites in building wealth. In 1963, the average wealth of white families was $117,000 higher than the average wealth of nonwhite families. By 2013, the average wealth of white families was over $500,000 higher than the average wealth of African American families ($95,000) and of Hispanic families ($112,000) sources: Survey of Financial Characteristics of Consumers 1962 (December 31), Survey of Changes in Family Finances 1963, and Survey of Consumer Finances 1983–2013.

 The answer is to repent of your sins, seek the Most High God of Israel, and keep His commandments.

“Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.” Ecclesiastes 12:13 KJV

The Brown Male Aesthetics

What is it about the brown male aesthetics beauty that has us so enamored with its power? The answer would definitely not be a clique or fallacy but a term of endearment to the one that beholds such a pulchritude of genetic brown male perfection. When one thinks of brown male aesthetics they often refer to it as masculine perfection.

The Hater Syndrome

Okay if you made it to this point, I went over what you must possess to be considered a woman of the Most High, the attributes and behaviors. Does this sound familiar?

These photographs are the property of their respective owners.
Typical conversations among women.
Lady 1: She is gorgeous
Lady 2: Girl, you should see her when she takes off the weave and makeup then say that.
Or
Lady 3: She is cute.
Lady 4: She thinks she is all that.

Lady 2 and 4 are quite typical little did they know I don’t wear weave and never have. I have always had long hair. As far as makeup well I sometimes wear mascara, maybe some lipstick. Do we, as people expect, people on social media to say something positive, supportive, or convey a definite compliment. These people are cowards hiding behind a computer screen so their lives may be hell, so they want to make your hell to. I remember like over a decade ago, has done some modeling, my photo was featured online on a website, but it was under the wrong name. It was kind of funny how there was an ongoing conversation about my looks, and I’m sure that most of these people never seen me in person. I read the comments:

She looks like a big plastic blowup doll
Is she Somalian? No she cheeks are too chubby to be Somalian, but he is stunning.
She is as pretty as Halle Berry
In a room of women, she would stand out, but I don’t think the other beautiful women would go unnoticed.
She looks like a witch
I bet she’s an evil bitch she is too pretty.
Her eyes make her look possessed I bet her man has to cover his eyes when they have sex
I bet she has had some work done; she is to perfect.
She is cute for a biracial girl
She could earn 8000 dollars a night at a strip club that is until her novelty runs out.
Her hair is a weave (No its not)
Is she real? (Yes I am)
She is hella fine. I would date her, f*** her, and then leave her ass
I hate this yellow bitch.
I wish she would die of an aneurysm
Y’all only think she is pretty because she is light skinned.

A hater? Yes. Sadly a woman is often measured by the eyes of haters. By the things, she cannot control. She is measured by the way her body curves or doesn’t curve, by the way, it sticks out or sticks in. The wooliness of her hair or the lack thereof. The hue of her skin or the darkness of it. The attractiveness of her face or the ugliness. The education or the job she possesses. The material goods that she has acquired or doesn’t have. What is one to do take to heart the comments of the hater. A hater is someone that envies what another one has that they want. Their main goal is to make you feel bad for what you have been born with or blessed with. I have never been one to hate on someone because they are pretty or have earthly possessions. This is all preposterous, hating on anyone is not going to get you what they have. I have been confident in myself, to appreciate another woman’s beauty or possessions. I compliment them, sincerely. The Most High made us all unique and special. A hater is someone that envies what another one has that they want.

If the world hates you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. John 15:18 The main point to drive home about hate is that they hated the Messiah (Christ) so if we are called by his name, then they will hate us too. So count it all joy, you must be doing something right.

Criticism

Criticism comes in many forms, one form is “Constructive criticism.” Your black dress is more acceptable for the Opera than the white dress. It aims to show that the intent or purpose of something is better served by an alternative approach. In this case, making the criticism is not necessarily estimated as being wrong, and its reason for existence is reverential. Constructive criticisms are often suggestions for improvement – how things could be done better or more acceptable. They draw attention to how an identified problem could be solved or how it could be solved better. Constructive criticism is more likely to be embraced if the objection is timely, transparent, specific, detailed, and actionable.

Negative Criticism

Friends and family members are the culprits of criticism. Most people are not sure how to handle it? They often feel that they can say anything to you with no response. I am sure that most of us have swollen lips, as we often have to bite them from saying something we shouldn’t. Trust me, I often clamped my mouth, but to no avail, it persists. I think often people speak with an undercurrent of envy or lack of knowledge. Here are some tips that will help when you have to deal with people who continuously criticize your every move. You can’t always control how other people act or what they say, but we can forever change our own behavior to better deal with the situation. Like my late husband always said to me, “Consider the source.”

“Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised.” Proverbs 31:30 KJV

I’ve never been the type to make a lot of female friends except for a group of close ones. Women don’t positively respond to me, especially the worldly ones, the ones absent of the truth of the Most High. I find myself having to defend my beauty for as long as I can remember, I’ve been hated because of the way I look. I know that beauty is something that can’t be ignored. I always seemed to invoke compliments such as your the most beautiful woman I have ever seen, you should be a model, you look like a movie star. It came to the point when someone passes me a compliment I feel funny like I wanted them to leave; I grew up knowing I would get attention because of my beauty. I am not touched by the praises of man could change without warning. What is not apparent is the inner man something no one can see the truth be told that is what touches me the most my inner beauty.

Do we as people expect, people on social media to say something positive, supportive, or convey a positive compliment. These people are cowards hiding behind a computer screen, so their live may be hell so they want to make yours hell to. I remember like over a decade ago, having done some modeling, my photo was featured online on a website but it was under the wrong name. It was kind of funny how there was an on going conversation about my looks and I’m sure that most of these people never seen me in person. I read the comments:

She looks like a big plastic blowup doll.  Is she Somalian? No she cheeks are too chubby to be Somalian but he is stunning. She is as pretty as Halle Berry.  In a room, of women, she would stand out, but I don’t think the other beautiful women would go unnoticed. She looks like a witch I bet she’s an evil bitch she is too pretty.  Her eyes make her look possessed I bet her man has to cover his eyes when they have sex.  I bet she has had some work done she is to perfect.  She is cute for a biracial girl. She could earn 8000 dollars a night at a strip club that is until her novelty runs out.  Her hair is a weave.  Is she real?  I would date her and then leave her ass.  I hate this yellow bitch I wish she would die of an aneurysm.  Y’all only think she is pretty because she is light skinned.

Most people live in a closed box and don’t know anything other than what is placed for them in a box. Since the beginning of western civilization, we have been taught what is right and what is wrong by our slave master. In Willie Lynch days, he has an eloquently devised plan to separate our people according to class and looks. Which placed our people into a pitiless competition with one another. Today, black people still seem to embody that spirit of envy. You would like that through slavery, the civil rights era, etc.… our people would have bonded together more, or even been more supportive of each other’s pursuits. After all, all other nations bond together, start businesses and give each additional moral support. But where the black people stand, is a bit more grudge mental, to say the least. Once a black person achieves a level of success, they don’t support their own community. Is there secret envy that plagues our people? Yes. Do not envy. We have all been given a talent.. And that talent will make room for us and bring us before great men. We all have something that contributes to the body… as the hand provides to the arm.

“A man’s gift maketh room for him, and bringeth him before great men.” Proverbs 18:16 KJV The handout – syndrome. Really I ask? I notice that when a black person comes out with a product, book or some service. Other black people want to get it free or ask can you give them a complimentary copy. But note that they never ask the white entrepreneurs can they get something free. They pay full price. Most black people envy each other while secretly longing for failure to come to a person. It has been documented that blacks spend less or invest less in black-owned businesses. According to Nielson rating, that black spending power will reach over 1 trillion dollars in a few years. The spending power among blacks is enormous, yet hardly any of it goes back into the community.

It is no secret that blacks are extremely talented the world over. We need to adopt the motto – we need to spread the wealth. The Most High gives you talents for your needs to be met and to help our people advance. But the world systems are saying that “I got mine now you get yours.” 

A faithfull friend is a strong defence: and he that hath found such an one hath found a treasure. Ecclesiasticus 6:14 KJV

True friends generally, fit into one of the three categories, such as Outer Court, Inner Court, and Holies of Holies.

1. Outer Court: You share general things with them with a level of caution.

Fair-weather friends, Neighbors, Associates, Haters, People with hidden agendas or People you meet on the streets.

2. Inner Court: There is some trust that you share more intimate things with them.

Mentors, boyfriends/girlfriends, and some Relatives

3. Holy of Holies: You trust them with all your secrets and your life.

Spouses, Best Friends, Like minded people, there when hardship or difficulty rears its head, loyal friends that have stood the test of time and sticks closer than a brother.

Instead of constantly surrounding yourself with like-minded people, try to break out of your comfort zone and befriend people who hold opposing views. They will help open your eyes to different world views and you’ll learn to accept people who don’t see the world exactly the way you see it.

Instead of a friend become not an enemy; for thereby thou shalt inherit an ill name, shame, and reproach: even so, shall a sinner that hath a double tongue. Extol not thyself in the counsel of thine own heart; that thy soul is not torn in pieces as a bull straying alone. Thou shalt eat up thy leaves, and lose thy fruit, and leave thyself as a dry tree. A wicked soul shall destroy him that hath it, and shall make him laugh to the scorn of his enemies. The sweet language will multiply friends: and a fairspeaking tongue will increase kind greetings. Be in peace with many: nevertheless, have but one counsellor of a thousand. If thou wouldest, get a friend, prove him first and be not hasty to credit him. For some man is a friend for his own occasion, and will not abide in the day of thy trouble. And there is a friend, who being turned to enmity, and strife will discover thy reproach. Again, some friend is a companion at the table, and will not continue in the day of thy affliction. A faithful friend is a strong defense: and he that hath found such a one hath found a treasure. Nothing doth countervail a loyal friend, and his excellency is invaluable. A faithful friend is the medicine of life, and they that fear the Lord shall find him. Whoso feareth the Lord shall direct his friendship aright: for as he is, so shall his neighbor be also. Ecclesiasticus chapter 6: 1-10, 14-17 KJV

1. Get closer to the Most High (read the bible and pray)

“Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.” Isaiah 26:3 Discovering who you are in the Most High is the key to life. We all are given one life, and we must know our purpose for living. It is more significant than you think.

2. Become your biggest cheerleader and motivator.

“And David was greatly distressed; for the people spake of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and for his daughters: but David encouraged himself in the LORD his God.” 1 Samuel 30:6 Daily read quotes and scriptures to motivate yourself. Tell yourself, you can do it,… I can make it… In life, most of the time, you will not have people around to encourage you so you must promote yourself. I know that I am my biggest cheerleader, and I always have been.

3. Take care of yourself

What? Know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost [which is] in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? Eat right, work out, and pamper yourself. Trust nobody can say anything to you when you are healthy.

4. Don’t listen to people. Don’t fear them they have no power over you.

And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which can destroy both soul and body in hell. Matthew 10:28 If they are not an expert in an area don’t listen, nobody opinion matters. That is just like a person with cancer or diabetes, telling you how to eat. I don’t share a lot of my life with people around me because it often triggers insecurities in people they become volatile to you. That way, you keep them at bay because your life is your own, and they don’t get to own your destiny.

5. Get rid of toxic people.

Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful Psalms 1:1

We have no business being with sinners in the form of toxic people. If a friend or relative is causing emotional damage in your life, this is a sign of a toxic person. Sinners or toxic people drain the life out of you with their negativity. They suck the joy and peace out of your psyche with gossip, selfishness, or extreme dependency, know it all attitude, glory hoarder, and narcissism. Most times going into crying sessions making it all about them, and how they have been done wrong.Y’all only think she is pretty because she is light skinned

If the world hates you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. John 15:18 The main point to drive home about hate is that they hated the Messiah (Christ) so if we are called by his name, then they will hate us to. So count it all joy, you must be doing something right. Criticism may be the sister of hate. Criticism comes in many forms, one form is “Constructive criticism.” Your black dress is more acceptable for the Opera than the white dress.

It aims to show that the intent or purpose of something is better served by an alternative approach. In this case, making the criticism is not necessarily estimated as being wrong, and its reason for existence is reverential. Constructive criticisms are often suggestions for improvement – how things could be done better or more acceptable. They draw attention to how an identified problem could be solved, or how it could be solved better. Constructive criticism is more likely to be embraced if the criticism is timely, clear, specific, detailed and actionable.

Nevertheless, I persisted.

 The answer is to repent of your sins, seek the Most High God of Israel, and keep His commandments.

“Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.” Ecclesiastes 12:13 KJV

Dilemma 19 – "Good Hair"

COMMON THINGS SPOKEN ABOUT HAIR TYPE 3A – 4C:

Coily Hair

You need to straighten it, unkept! Do something with your hair. It is nappy, you look ugly, you need a weave, go and rectify it. I like you better with straight hair.

Permed Hair

You don’t love yourself, go natural! Trying to be something your not.

Curly Hair

You have some good hair. It is too wild needs to be straight. What are you mixed with?

Straight Hair

Ideal with the masses, the universal standard of hair beauty.

Most black women testify that perms, pressing combs, and relaxers make their hair more manageable. Who is the inventor of the relaxer? In 1877, the relaxer was created by accident by Garrett A. Morgan the same man that invented the traffic signal. This allowed for women and men of color to have the straight hair like their white counterparts for 100’s of years. The perm was referred as “ creamy crack” in Chris Rock’s “Good Hair Documentary” a must see if you haven’t seen it already it exposes the dangers and chemicals found in the hair treatments. Natural Hair is the best it is at its healthiest, free of chemicals and it grows fast! The chemicals in the relaxer treatments maybe damaging but many women will argue the fact that having a relaxer has contributed to their back length hair if it is taken care of.

All photographs are the property of their respective owners.

Black hair is a target of “texturism.” The question is, “why has the world scrutinized our hair?” While we are burning it with chemicals and heating tools, and tearing it out with weaves and glue. For 400 years +, the general population of black people has been imparted to by white people that their hair texture and skin is superior to that of black hair and black skin. This welcomed the birth of a hair obsession. A majority of blacks perceive straight, silky, and soft hair as best. When in fact, wooly hair is scientifically superior to straight hair. Coiled hair acts as antennae conducting the electromagnetic energies of the sun. These are the benefits that our ancestors had in the cotton fields in intense heat. Kinky, afros, nappy, curly, pressed, permed, weaves, or smooth flow? What is our obsession with hair, and how does it affect our perceptions of what is considered attractive? This differentiation of various textures of hair that disregards our hair as being good that sociological programming still continues today.

For as long as I remember people often asked me after examining my mid back length hair, “Is all that hair yours?” or “Do you have Indian in your family?“ In the literal sense of logic or even common sense what they are saying to me is that a black female can’t have long hair unless she is mixed with something. Now, this thought process was first initiated by Willie Lynch back in slavery times and is still relevant today. So the term “Nappy” was created by the white man and was adopted for centuries by black people, but in reality, our hair has a helix (spiral) pattern. It’s the same pattern as whirlwinds and sound waves and DNA. Our hair is meant to grow outward like a tree, not downward like a cascading waterfall. When our hair is given proper care, it’s fluffy soft. Not only that, our hair is high-volume, high-definition. Our hair doesn’t hang down, it’s not limp, lifeless and flat, it never lacks volume, and you’ll never see a sister wearing a “bump-it” to get the illusion of voluminous hair. We don’t need it. We can take our wool from kinky to curly to wavy to straight and back to kinky again if that’s our desire. Our hair can even defy gravity and do so naturally. Others can’t. Our hair is a glorious crown, the “original” crown. Look how a head is designed! So, when you see these so-called European royalty women wearing a top. They are imitating the beauty of our hair! Wow isn’t that amazing! For black women, the straight hair bias is the culprit of texture prejudice that privileges the white woman’s texture as the supreme texture of hair. Black women are not aware that our hair is rich with soil, the color of dark chocolate, rises to the sky, vastness as space, coiled to perfection, and a mystery of the Most High.

I must admit I love running my fingers through my hair while showering, the curls embrace my face as the water runs the length on my back. I get attention on the comeliness of my hair they suggest that its a prized possession but in reality, to my nation, it’s a god. Yes it is possible to worship hair, I have never been guilty of such worship.. frankly, I always had long hair. It was never a concern of mine. But for many of my sisters, it is, after all, it’s our crowning glory. The black women have always been guilty of false glory due to the fact that you are adorning your head with someone else’s glory. How do we get our own glory? By nourishing our own glory and owning it. I know we own our cars, clothes, or even homes but we must own our hair. We must be thankful and take care of what the Most High gave us.

My interview with Khalifa Musical, a professor of African American Studies

Q. Do you think that as children we are programmed to say that our hair is bad?

Khalifa: Yes, I remember my mother said to my sister about her kinky hair, you need to get your hair done by that she meant to straighten it by perms of straightening combs. As a man, I grow up conditioned to perceive black hair as something terrible that needed to be fixed. I used to look at the women on the commercial and think that was beauty, it was not until I because a student of consciousness that I realize my thinking was wrong. In fact with most of my students when asked about black hair – 43% (over 200 black male students) said they prepared black women with their natural hair, apart from wigs, weaves, and perms. While 57 % preferred the look of Caucasian straight hair as most attractive and 90% voted that this was conditioned by slavery misconceptions and fallacies about our hair.

Redefining the standard of beauty in terms of hair.

The hair texture closely associated with European straight hair is considered almost heavenly good and esteemed most attractive. This straight hair blowing in the wind, cascading down the back, smooth to touch, and easy to comb. Is this perfection? How can this hair be the best? Willie Lynch is to blame on this one dividing and conquering the slaves based on hair texture. But who says this is true? The fault lies with the mother who never taught the daughter the beauty of her hair. The world has brought into this lie, pure and simple for some, there is no turning back from this theory. In West Africa, Nigeria to be specific the boys and young girls cut their hair off not to deal with the texture and opt to wear wigs. While in the United States, black women are literally tearing their hair out of their heads through the wearing of the weave so they can slang it back and forth. The ignorance of our people is undoubtedly devastating to know that something that created with sheer brilliance is a beast of burden to many.

Astin Downing AKA Mocha2001 is a pioneer in the natural hair movement. She gives her tips and secrets to her followers on youtube and Instagram.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-JgkuM9KhTI

Q: Tell me about your hair care journey?

Astin: When I first when natural my hair was badly damaged. I had bald edges due to lace wigs and glue. I used Castro oil, Shea moisture shampoo and conditioner, Renue pure deep conditioner and green Eco styler gel.

Q: When did you stop using relaxers?

Astin: My last relaxer was 2012 when relaxed my hair, it was always dry plus it never grew to pass my shoulders. Now I’m natural I seen how my true hair texture is this curly. My hair has grown down my back very moisturized now, thick and healthy..

Q: What are your top tips for hair growth?

Astin: My top tips for hair growth is moisturize, drink water, and use less heat.

Q: What is your hair care routine?

Astin: I have 2 hair care routine one for winter and summer. In the winter, I use more moisture and I apply self-heat to my hair for straight styles. I wash my hair once a week and deep condition twice a week and grease my scalp with Castro oil twice a week. My summer routine – I add no heat to my hair, I just wash it and go. I do twist outs and wash my hair once a week deep condition once a month and grease my scalp once a month with Castro oil.

How to take care of black hair?

My Q & A with my hairdresser Diana, note she has natural hair all the way down her back.

Q: What do you think about this Good hair, Bad hair situation among black people?

Diane: I think black people are some of the most ignorant people on earth, surely they have bought into the lie of slavery. All hair is good, if it grows out of your head, it is good. What has ruined our nose is the perms and the weaves.

Q: What are some tips for the maintenance and growth of natural hair?

Diane:

1. There is a huge misconception that black hair is coarse, strong and can take a beating. That is true, in fact, black hair is the most fragile of every hair type, my Asian clients have the strongest hair very coarse now their hair can take a beating.

2. Co-washes your hair once a week with a natural moisturizing conditioner and not shampoo because it dries out the hair which can cause breakage.

3. Keep your hair moisturized with a natural moisturizer and seal the ends with olive oil. Choose natural organic products and try to avoid products with mineral oils and petroleum oil. Natural oils like almond, coconut oil, olive oil, grape seed oil, and jojoba oils are much better.

4. If you use heat styling products (blow dryers, Flatirons) on your hair, try and cut it down to 1-2 times a month if you can, and make sure you use a heat protection shampoo and/or moisturizer, or a good heat protective serum/spray on your hair before flat ironing or curling.

5. Make sure you sleep on a satin pillowcase or tie your hair up in a silk scarf so your hair can stay healthy and won’t break or tear. Silk or satin pillowcases, bonnets, and scarves will protect your hair from breakage while rubbing against certain fabrics that cause breakage.

6. Moisturize your ends nightly with coconut oil before you go to sleep

7. Once a month only use a protein treatment for deep conditioning.

8. For extend hair growth I recommend a diet of fresh fruits and vegetables and exercised weekly to get the blood flowing to your hair.

9. Massage your scalp a few times a week for extra blood flow for hair growth.

10. Use a wide tooth comb to comb your hair, stop buying bristle brushes or thin combs which will get caught in your hair and snap it off. Go for low maintenance. We should never comb our hair every day just detangle with your fingers, after applying moisturizer.

Weaves

India is known for their pagan worship of hundreds of gods, one of the rituals that go on, they get very young girls to shed their long hair for profit, then in return pray over it with a dedication to one of the gods. Then this hair appears in the heads of black women the world over. With this spiritual connotation, you are wearing hear sacrificed to idol gods. Black women are not the only ones guilty, white women and other nations were weaves as well, but they refer to them as hair extensions. Weaves illuminate the “Lie” of good hair, it created false security of beauty. In actuality, wearing a pattern makes it bad for those of us (including me) that have naturally long hair that is accused daily of wearing a weave. The long-term effects of weaves have many severe risks to your scalp, such as permanent hair loss. Wigs are a great alternative; at least you are not damaging your scalp. Wearing a weave is your choice. I am not against it if that‘s your choice, I was just stating the facts.

Front Lace Wigs beware… Actress Countess Vaughn (star of the Parkers show on television) shared her hair dilemma on the Doctors television show, wearing the front lace wigs and how they damaged her hairline she had an allergic reaction to the glue now forced to have hair restoration surgery to repair damaged hair follicles. Perms or Relaxers Because perms and relaxers tore your hair, you must keep your beard conditioned to retain length and prevent breakage — Diane (my hairdresser) Most black women testify that perms, pressing combs, and relaxers make their hair more manageable. Who is the inventor of the relaxer? In 1877, the relaxer was created by accident by Garrett A. Morgan the same man that invented the traffic signal. This allowed for women and men of color to have straight hair like their white counterparts for 100’s of years. The perm was referred as “ creamy crack” in Chris Rock’s “Good Hair Documentary” a must see if you haven’t seen it already it exposes the dangers and chemicals found in the hair treatments. Natural Hair is the best it is at its healthiest, free of chemicals, and it grows fast! The chemicals in the relaxer treatments may be damaging, but many women will argue the fact that having a relaxer has contributed to their back length hair if it is taken care of.

My Hair won’t grow

Astin Downing whose hair has grown while being nurtured naturally without chemicals, so black hair does grow no matter the texture of it.

Unfortunately, that is the gospel that most black or brown women preach. The truth is that if you keep all the weaves and chemicals off your hair, it will grow with some easy maintenance, it will grow in no time. A black woman’s hair will grow if she maintains to keep it healthy and nourished with the right natural products, contrary to popular belief, the black woman is not alone, there are some case where the white woman’s hair won’t grow either, or it’s fragile — Diane (my hairdresser)

In the past… The Curse – Moreover the LORD saith, Because the daughters of Zion are haughty, and walk with stretched forth necks and wanton eyes, walking and mincing as they go, and making a tinkling with their feet: Therefore the Lord will smite with a scab the crown of the head of the daughters of Zion, and the LORD will discover their secret parts. — Isaiah 3: 16-17 – Because of the haughtiness toward our men our head was smitten with baldness, which would explain the lust for long hair. We had the beauty everyone wanted at that time. We are the Daughters of Zion. That was a curse! Now today… I believe that curse is lifted… With all the beautiful hair treatments, perms, hair styling, relaxers, weaves, chemicals from shampoos, our diet, hormones, what we drink, rest, environment etc. All these elements affect the health of our hair. What is paramount is the way we care for our hair? Is long hair is possible? Yes.

Asha Mandela, who reportedly has the most extended hair, dreads in the world at a whopping 22 foot long, her extreme long tresses were documented by the Guinness World Record in 2009. Many of us on this day have long hair. Your hair grows! Take care of the hair that grows out of your head. Black women are waking up to their true identity according to the Bible all over the world & learning to love the skin they’re in, wooly hair & all through the natural hair movement and it is absolutely awe-inspiring.

But if a woman has long hair, it is a glory to her: for her hair is given her for a covering.1 Corinthians 11:15 KJV

Black hair is a target of the famous “Ism,” known as “Texturism.” The question is, “why has the world scrutinized our hair?” While we are burning it with chemicals and heating tools, and tearing it out with weaves and glue. For 400 years +, the general population of black people has been imparted to by white people that their hair texture and skin is superior to that of black hair and black leather. This welcomed the birth of a hair obsession. A majority of blacks perceive straight, silky, and soft hair as best. When in fact, wooly hair is scientifically superior to straight hair.

How do we get our own vision? By nourishing our own glory and owning it. I know we own our cars, clothes, or even homes but we must hold our hair. We must be thankful and take care of what the Most High gave us. The hair texture closely associated with European straight hair is considered almost heavenly good and esteemed most attractive. This straight hair blowing in the wind, cascading down the back, smooth to touch, and easy to comb.

The ignorance of our people is undoubtedly devastating to know that something that created with sheer brilliance is a beast of pardon to many.

My conversation with a random woman I encountered at a boutique.

Woman: Girl you got some excellent hair — 

Me: All hair is good. Woman: I wish my hair were long and pretty like yours. You’re so cute. 

Me: Your hair is pretty. 

Woman: But not like yours 

Me: You know that is a fallacy created by our people that goes back to slavery. There is no right or bad hair. The Most High created all hair and its good hair. (That comment left her speechless and puzzled there was no reply) 

The contemptuous terms such as ‘good hair’ or ‘bad hair’ came out of the era of slavery, during the Willie Lynch period. Where slaves were put into groups according to the lightness of skin and hair textures the closer your hair was to Caucasian hair the better you were perceived in being that meant you would be considered “a house negro” and receive preferential treatment than the darker slaves. Our hair is our crowning glory; there are various textures of hair that black people have due to genetics and racial mixing. These textures vary from 3A to 4D, beautiful to tightly curled.

3 a – fine curl pattern

 3 b – medium curl pattern 

3 c – loose curly pattern

 4a – thicker curly pattern

4b – thicker medium pattern

4c – medium curly pattern

4d – excessively tighter curls

Facts about black hair: 

It keeps you cool and protects you from the sun.

Our hair is our crowning glory; there are many textures of hair that black people have due to genetics and interracial rations.

There is more money spend on hair care around the world then products to actually make the hair grow.

There is no such thing as bad hair, the strains of our hair was created by the Most High and trust me, he knew what He was doing in creation but through colonization and the media which suggests that long bone straight flowing hair is most attractive.

We as people have bought into that “Lie” yes I said it, that lie because that is what it is. You have been brainwashed into thinking that excessively curly or wooly hair isn’t as good as straight hair.

The Savior of this world has wooly hair.

My nation is so ignorant, how they talk about their hair. All hair is good. Embrace your wool.

I was taught I had terrible hair, so I relaxed it and added weave now I am bald headed — Brittany (a 31-year-old black woman) 

I wish my parents would have taught me that my hair wasn’t bad — Erica Wilson (18-year-old female) 

There is nothing better than a black woman that wears her natural hair — Jonathan (white male married to a black woman)

Often people ask me if my hair is real because it’s thick and long.

Male Store clerk: Is all that hair yours?

Me: Yes

Male Store clerk: Can I touch it?

Today in 2018, I walk proudly with my hair covered sometimes, it gives the mystery of what is underneath. Is it short or is it long? In late 18th century Louisiana, black women were ordered to cover their hair in public. This system was called the “Bando du Buen Gobierno,” “Edict for Good Government.” These rules were meant to change certain so-called “unacceptable” behaviors of the free black women. specifically overly ostentatious hairstyles,(designed to impress or attract notice) of which drew the attention of white men, and the jealousy of white women. These rules are called the “Tignon Laws” A tignon (pronounced “yon”) is a headdress. They are still doing this today! Where a lot of people go on interviews and are being turned away because of their natural hair, The employers say they must straighten their hair. But finally, we are waking back up to our beauty! They even fear our hair!

When wearing a weave or perming your hair, you are playing roulette with your hair, please handle with care. — Diane (my hairdresser)

ALL HAIR IS GOOD!

LITTLE GIRL IN THE STORE: Look at her hair Mom. LITTLE GIRL’S MOM: That is a weave. ME: No, it’s my hair.

It is a mere fact that us women that have long natural hair like me that grow out of our heads, always manage to get a hater or naysayers that believe that our hair is not real. In the society with all the fakers, weave wearers, and wig junkies it makes it hard for those of us that like to keep it real. It is also true that we were conditioned through slavery to hate ourselves and the texture of our hair so we commit our scalps to abusive chemicals and hair that did not grow from our scalp. The truth of the matter is that all hair is good, the creator of all made it. This hate is correlated with the term “Texturism.”

Good Hair (we have it.)

Teach your children who they are, what they are in the Most High.

Teach your children to love their hair.

The answer is to repent of your sins, seek the Most High God of Israel, and keep His commandments.

“Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.” Ecclesiastes 12:13 KJV

How to Pray

Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread.

Scriptures: Psalms 55:17, 1 Kings 8:28, 1 Kings 8:38, Proverbs 15:29, 2 Chronicles 32:20, Job 8:5, Psalms 73:28, Ephesians 3:14, Ephesians 6:18, Matthew 6:7
Facts about PRAYER: It changes things and a way of communicating with the Most High.

It’s a battle daily living within the gut of this monster we denote this world. My very psyche is levy daily with apprehension and juddering, it feels as if I am suffocating every moment to the point of feeling thirsty or excessive hung but yet never having enough to quench those appetites. It is as if I am watching an Opera while everyone else is watching the same show the only difference is that our perspicacious is like night and day. In whatever seat I sit in I must see the world through the eyes of the Most High to carry me through the dilemmas of life through his perception. I am not a perfect person, my flaws are endless, in my life I have made a lot of mistakes. But I do strive daily to be more like the Savior, keep the commandments. As long as there is breath in our bodies there is hope. Life every day like your last for no one is promised tomorrow. Our lives are like the vapor, we are here for a short time. Only the things you do for the Most High will last.

Read your bible because what we have been taught are lies. We still have to keep the 10 commandments. There is no rapture. When you die you go to Abraham’s Bosom (paradise) or Hades (Hell.) There is no such thing as once saved always saved. Nobody is saved right now. Hell is real. A man is appointed to die once, no reincarnation. If you do not repent and keep the commandments you will go to hell. The is only one true God – The Most High – the God of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and the nation of Israel. You must keep the Sabbath (Friday sundown to Saturday sundown). Sunday Church is the worship of the Sun God.

For those confessing being a part of the Nation of Israel, prayer is the best way to communicate with the Most High. Prayer is the vehicle for daily dialog with the One who created us. The importance of daily communication through prayer cannot be overestimated. It is so important that it is mentioned over 250 times in Scripture. So why is daily prayer so important? First, daily prayer gives us an opportunity to share all aspects of our lives including our circumstances daily with the Most High. Second, daily prayer gives us the chance to express our gratitude for all the things He provides out food, clothing, and shelter. Prayer provides the platform for confessing our sin and asking for help in overcoming that sin. Prayer is an act of worship and obedience. Prayer is a way to acknowledge who is really in control of our lives. Let’s take a look at each of these important reasons in a little more detail. The Prayer the Savior gave to us: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom comes, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen. Matthew 6:9-13 KJV Prayer is the direct link to the Most High. Anoint yourself and your family with anointing oil as you pray for them.

The hypothetical logic of possessing the mind of Christ (1 Corinthians 2:16) introduces a spiritual connection but first we can’t leave our minds undisciplined. The Apostle Paul understood this well: “Philippians 4:8 (KJV) – “ Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.” Due to your spirit and soul connection you will never obtain the mind of the Savior without first reading the word regularly.

Meditate on the words of the Most High daily.

We can hardly overstate the importance of integrity to a generation of believers so much like the world in ethical conduct. But integrity’s benefits of character, a clear conscience, deep intimacy with the Most High argue its importance. Our speech and conduct must be intentionally following the laws and statues of the Most High. “ If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man’s religion is vain. James 1:26 (KJV)” Our words should be offered on the altar.

Repent!

Dilemma 44 – " The Spirit, Soul, and the Body.

There are three critical components of mankind, the Spirit, Soul, and the Body. The body houses the soul and spirit.

1. (Spirit) Breath into nostrils the breath of life. The Spirit (Hebrew “Ruwach”)

Our human spirit is an element given to men to enable them to know the Most High intimately through a genuine relationship. Our human spirit is what connects us with the Most High spiritually. So to be connected with The Most High is to be alive spiritually Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) Ephesians 2:5 KJV To be disconnected from the Most High is to be dead spiritually For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Christ our Lord. Romans 6:23 KJV Our human spirit is the element through which the Holy Spirit dwells in us as we keep his commandments and statues. Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me. Cast me not away from thy presence, and take not thy holy spirit from me. Psalms 51: 10-11 KJV When we sin the Holy Spirit departs from us.

We understand, receive, and discern spiritual truth through our human spirit by the anointing of the Holy Spirit But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you. John 14:26 KJV The human spirit is like blood in our physical body, which is symbolic of material life. When a limb of the body is deprived of blood, it withers and dies. It’s the same thing that transpires when we’re disconnected from the Most High due to sin our spirit man is dead as a result. Because the spirit becomes deprived of the rich spiritual nourishment the word, provision, and support that it desperately needs from the Most High’s word for it to be alive, healthy, and in good graces with the Most High. It all happens as a result of our human spirit being disconnected from God, which is spiritual death. When that happens, utter darkness has invaded the body, soul, and spirit. This leads to enmity with the Father. A condition that occurs after you sin. It disconnects the undeviating interaction with the Most High (your Father) the gate to the nucleus of our existence the Most High God of Israel. And they fell upon their faces, and said, O God, the God of the spirits of all flesh, shall one man sin, and wilt thou be wroth with all the congregation? Numbers 16:22 KJV This verse names the Most High as the God of the spirits that are possessed by all humanity.

Notice also that it mentions the flesh (body) of all mankind, connecting it with the spirit. It’s in our spirit that we have meaning and purpose in life. At the deepest level, our spirit gives us meaning and purpose and our spirit enables us to love one another, our self and the creator. It’s through our spirit that we have communion and fellowship with the Most High God. Our spirit gives us intuition between right and wrong. “For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.” Galatians 5:17

2. (Soul) Man became a living soul. The Soul (Hebrew, “Nephesh” )

The soul is an immaterial element; in other words, the soul is spirit as well. It’s the very element in which intellect, emotion, and free will are exercised. The soul is the element which controls the body in these three areas. The soul is immortal in the sense that it can be annihilated; therefore, it remains alive even if the body is dead physically. Since it’s where free will is located; consequently, it’s the very element that carries the massive burden of sin. Our soul gives us the ability to think, choose, imagine, remember, and feel. Most importantly, the soul is the very embodiment of our mind and heart. As a result, our mind is the very part of our body that Satan and his demons contend against the truth persistently. If Satan can keep you in strong delusion and fulfilling the lusts of your flesh and eyes. Your mind will be held captive. You must flee from temptation. “There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.” 1 Corinthians 10:13 KJV To flee from all temptations known to man. But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. Matthew 4:4 KJV The soul is the very part of man in which his conscience resides.

The consciousness of reasoning and evaluating sin. A conscience is given by God to keep a man from evil by releasing an intense onus and discomfort feeling before committing an act of sin. Lot of times, strong guilt and remorse are experienced after people have committed something that was in clear violation of breaking the commandments, laws, and statues with their own conscience their sense of right and wrong: the understanding of what is right and wrong that governs somebody’s thoughts and actions, urging him or her to do right rather than wrong. Our soul is what gives us our personality; it’s the real you. Often referred to as your heart. Our soul has three significant components — our mind, will, and emotions. Our brain has a conscious part and a subconscious part. The conscious mind is where we do our thinking and reasoning. The sub-conscious mind is where we hold our deep beliefs and our attitudes. It’s also where we have our feeling, our emotions and retain our memories. Our will is what gives us the ability to make choices. Through a very complicated way, our mind, our will, and our emotions are connected to the body through our endocrine, nervous, and immune systems. The soul is a slave to sin. Genesis 2:7 KJV states that Man was created as a “living soul.” The soul consists of the mind (which includes the conscience), the will and the emotions. The soul and the spirit are mysteriously tied together and makeup what the Scriptures call the “heart.” And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living soul. Genesis 2:7 KJV The writer of Proverbs declares, ” Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life. Proverbs 4:23 KJV We see here that the “heart” which is part of the soul is central to our emotions and will. But the natural man receiveth, not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.1 Corinthians 2:14 KJV And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which can destroy both soul and body in hell. Matthew 10:28 KJV It is our soul that will go to either Abraham’s bosom or Hades after we die. But his flesh upon him shall have pain, and his soul within him shall mourn. Job 14:22 KJV

3. (Body) formed from the dust of the ground. The Body (Hebrew, “ Graph”)

I beseech you, therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. Romans 12:1 KJV A body is allied with performing and committing to the will of the Most High. The Spirit and a Soul might have a body to occupy. A body is for doing things on this earth, so the prime reason we have a physical body is to do the will of the Most High on earth. Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God. Romans 6:13 KJV We have a physical body for procreating purposes. “And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth.” Genesis 9:1 KJV A physical body allows us to enjoy and fit into the creation. Another reason as to why we have a physical body is because we’re made to dwell in a physical world, so our physicality enables us to interact and connect with our surroundings in a wide variety of ways. This is the entire material or physical structure of a human being — it is the physical part of a person.

Man is made up of physical material, the body complies with these systems that operate together to give the most harmonious operations of the organization: Cardiovascular/Circulatory system: Circulates blood around the body via the heart, arteries, and veins, delivering oxygen and nutrients to organs and cells and carrying their waste products away. Digestive system / Excretory system: Mechanical and chemical processes that provide nutrients via the mouth, esophagus, stomach, and intestines. Eliminates waste from the body. Endocrine system: Provides biochemical communications within the organization using hormones. Exocrine system: Skin, hair, nails, sweat, and other exocrine glands. Lymphatic system / Immune system: The system comprising a network of lymphatic vessels that carry a clear fluid called lymph. Defends the body against disease-causing agents. Muscular system/Skeletal system: Enables the body to move using muscles. Bones supporting the body and its organs. Nervous system: Collects and processes information from the senses via nerves and the brain and tells the muscles to contract to cause physical actions. Renal system / Urinary system: The system where the kidneys filter blood.

Reproductive system: The sex organs required for the production of offspring. Respiratory system: The lungs and the trachea that bring air into the body. The body is the indirect correlation with the 5 senses: hearing, sight, touch, smell, and taste. The body is in close relationship with the soul. They hardly ever contradict themselves. The body works in line with the flesh. “Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,” Galatians 5:19 KJV “Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh.” Romans 8:12 KJV When your soul and spirit live your body, it results in Death.

Body: Outer Court

 (Hebrew, “ Graph”)

The body carries out lust of the flesh through touch, taste, smell, sight, hearing, and feeling formed from the dust of the ground.

 I beseech you, therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. Romans 12:1 KJV A body is allied with performing and committing to the will of the Most High. The Spirit and a Soul might have a body to occupy. A body is for doing things on this earth, so the prime reason we have a physical body is for the purpose of doing the will of the Most High on earth. Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God. Romans 6:13 KJV We have a physical body for procreating purposes. “And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth.” Genesis 9:1 KJV

Death of the Body

This artwork is the property of its respective owner.

When we die the silver cord is broken… Our spirit and soul live in a body so when we die the silver cord is broken… Our soul pays the price for what our physical body does. When your cord breaks where will you be in Abraham’s bosom (at rest) or Hades (in torment)

“Or ever the silver cord be loosed, or the golden bowl be broken, or the pitcher be broken at the fountain or the wheel broken at the cistern.” Ecclesiastes 12:6

Hostilities and battles have inexorably the ability to turns a person’s point of view to the most intriguing thought-provoking questions about death. Life within itself is an unexplained phenomenon that ends at any time with reason or motive. Is it a climax to a bigger plan or the divine will of the Most High God? Don’t sorrow for the wounded lamb that hops to his mother, for the broken-winged blue jay that has flown away up the mountain. This is the sentiment when a loved one has departed from this world. While we lament over our loss at of our loved ones, we can revel in the fact of knowing that your loved ones went into Abraham bosom. Some deaths are met with joy, peace, longsuffering, and mourning. At the end of your life, judgment is set your body returns to the dirt, and your spirit to the Most High, your soul will enter Abraham’s bosom or Hades depending on you keep the laws and commandments of the Most High God of Israel. You exist no more your like a dream that is over, but the memories of you are trapped in the minds of your loved ones that were left behind. The loss of my husband has left me tormented with longing to touch, to feel, to talk, to get encouragement, to bask in the shadow of his glow, to walk side by side as the moon appears before our eyes, to serve him with reverence, due benevolence, love, to breath each others air, to share that last piece of cheesecake, to know that someone is there for you to accept me as I am. Death is final, and that devastation leaves you with not much to be desired but a feeling of peace in knowing that you loved one is in a better place with no pain and suffering. “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:” Hebrews 9:27 KJV Our bodies are decaying every moment we are lead to believe that we are to pay attention to our physical body only. The spirit is knocked out with a punch. We live eternal through our spirits. In the following chapters, you will experience the direct correlation between the connection of spirit, soul, and body. The body and soul are subject to the Spirit, and your spirit is to the Most High God of Israel. Repent! Turn back from your wicked ways! No one is promised tomorrow!

Have you ever wondered where your soul goes after it has departed your body? The world would have you to believe that everyone will enter the pearly gates of heaven or be reincarnated as another person or animal. In reality, where you go is determined on how you lived your life, did you live a life of sin, or did you keep the commandments?  Let’s first get it straight that you will not leave this earth until the Most High sends the decree, and your soul is required of you on that day. The Most High God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob is in control over everything including your life. For HE is the one true and living God.

This is what happens to your soul after it leaves your body.

And I answered and said,

   “Then will time be given the souls after they are separated

 from the bodies, to see what you have told me of?"

   “They have freedom for seven days, so that during these seven days they may see the things of which you have been told, and afterwards they shall be gathered in their habitations.”

So after your soul departs from your body, you will be given seven days before going into Abraham’s Bosom/Paradise (place of rest) or Hades (place of torment.) In regards to death, whether going into Abraham’s Bosom or a place of torment, it is explained profoundly in the Holy Bible, in the parable of the rich man and Lazarus.

“There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day: And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores, And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man’s table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores. And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried; And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments and seeth Abraham afar off and Lazarus in his bosom. And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame. But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented. Ab beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence. Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father’s house: For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment. Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them. And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent. And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, through one rose from the dead.” Luke 16:23-31 KJV Bible 8

“And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:” Hebrews 9:27 KJV

Our bodies are decaying every moment we are lead to believe that we are to pay attention to our physical body only. The spirit is knocked out with a punch. We live eternal through our spirits. In the following chapters you will experience the direct correlation between the connection of spirit, soul, and body. The body and soul is subject to the Spirit and your spirit is to the Most High God of Israel.

Now concerning death, the teaching is: When the decisive decree has gone out from the Most High that a person shall die, as the spirit leaves the body to return again to him who gave it, first of all, it adores the glory of the Most High. If it is one of those who have shown scorn and have not kept the way of the Most Hig, who have despised his law and hated those who fear God such spirits shall not enter into habitations, but shall immediately wander about in torments, always grieving and sad, in SEVEN WAYS:



1. The FIRST WAY is that they have scorned the Law of the Most High.

2. The SECOND WAY is that they can no longer make a good respentance, so that they may live.

3. The THIRD WAY they shall see the reward laid up for those who have trusted the covenants of the Most High.

4. The FOURTH WAY they shall consider the torment laid up for themselves in the last days.

5. The FIFTH WAY they shall see how the habitations of the others are guarded by angels in profound quiet.

6. The SIXTH WAY they shall see how some of them will crossover into torments.

7. The SEVENTH WAY which is worse than all the ways that have been mentioned, because they shall utterly waste away in confusion and be consumed with shame, and shall wither with fear at seeing the glory of the Most High in whose presence they sinned while they were alive, and in whose presence they are to be judged in the last times.



Now, this is the order of those who have kept the ways of the Most High, when they shall be separated from their mortal body. During the time that they lived in it, they laboriously served the Most High and withstood danger every hour so that they might keep the law of the Lawgiver perfectly. Therefore this is the teaching concerning them; First of all, they shall see with great joy the glory of him who receives them, for they shall have rest in 7 ORDERS.


1. The FIRST ORDER  is that they have striven with much toil to conquer the

wicked thought that was formed with them so that it should not lead them away from life to death.


2. The SECOND ORDER  is that they see the labyrinth in which the souls of the ungodly wander, and the punishment that awaits them.


3. The THIRD ORDER is that they see the testimony that he who formed them had borne to them because when they were them alive, they faithfully observed the law which was given.


4. The FOURTH ORDER is that they understand the rest which they now enjoy, gathered in their chambers, in great quietness, watched over by angels, and the glory that awaits them in the last days.


5. The FIFTH ORDER is that they exult that they have now escaped what is corruptible and will possess the future as their inheritance, and besides perceive the narrowness and toilsomeness from which they have been freed and the spaciousness they are destined to receive and enjoy in immortality.


6. The SIXTH ORDER  is that it is shown to them how their face is destined to shine like the sun, and how they are to be made like the light of the stars and be incorruptible thenceforth.


7. The SEVENTH ORDER  which is higher than all  those that have been mentioned, is that they will exult boldly,  and that they will trust confidently, and rejoice fearlessly,  life, and from whom they are to receive their reward when  for they hasten to see the face of him whom they served in

they are glorified.
