50 SHADES OF MELANIN 

  

It’s no longer just about black or white, no sir see from the very beginning that was never really the fight.

In order to truly understand the concept that seems skin deep. We’d actually have to educate ourselves and awaken from an ignorant sleep.

So scientifically, I dove deep. And all of the knowledge I’ve obtained along the way, I certainly plan to keep. 

Please stay with me as I attempt disseminate this information, so that we may cease all discrimination and accept our obvious relation. 

because melanin in its simplest form is nothing more than oxidation plus polymerization which equals pigmentation. Now add the proximation of the equator’s location to this equation and you’re left with the various shades of our unique colorization.

But see we don’t like to think with that mentality or mindset. So everything we know to be true we try to reset.

So we throw in race, culture, gender & religion. Take a step back and attempt to understand this ultimate division.

Turn around and look back in time, throughout all of creation and across every nation. The darker skinned person has faced the most discrimination.

As pac once said the darker the berry the sweeter the juice, the darker the flesh the deeper the roots.
