The open credits have ended, the scene begins with an action setting. The group of men are running for their lives, 4 white men and 1 Black man.
The troubled group find themselves cornered. They scurry to a small opening in the cave, and before a valiant attempt could be made, “Slash!“. The Black character is struck down, his death came quick! Not even 10 minutes into the movie.
It is almost the given in most action and horror movies. The spoken rule, that is openly discussed amongst “Black” Americans and the movie industry.
Even Black “A-List” actors are not safe from the proverbial “Chop!“.

Then there are the Heroin movies. The cast are primarily white with a disproportionate number of Melanin Rich characters. These movies will feature some world ending calamity or social destruction, where the white man or woman, “saves the day“. Yes, the white savior.

When there is a Black Heroin, he is; a homeless-drunk, the Spawn of the Devil or an “Undead” Day-Walker. He is more times over, created with massive character flaws.
To be fair, in the most recent Superhero movies, a lot of the known white superheroes have been cast with “Black” actors. A generous move to say the least.

One could ask, Why would a white writer, write a fantastical heroic movie about a black heroin in a predominantly melanin rich metropolis?
Where in that story could he/she relate?

So when a story is written about the riches, technologically advanced Nation in the world, led by, one of the world’s most intelligent minds, in a fictitious, secretly located area in Africa, one would expect such an epic story to be created by a Black man, right? Wrong.

T'Challa: Black Panther

T’Challa: Black Panther

The story of The Black Panther was a joint creation of Marvel’s Jack Kirby and Stan Lee (1966). This would be the first Black Superhero in a mainstream American comic. Everything about the Black Panther was original and unique from it’s back story to origin.

The creation of The Black Panther had no correlation with The Black Panther Party, which formed the same year (1966).

Black Panther quickly became a relevant character and superhero in the Marvel Universe, so how could anyone other than a Black man write such a progressive story and character?

T’Challa, a prince, who had risen to King (after the assassination of his father, T’Chaka, former King and Black Panther) of one of the most powerful nations (Wakanda: fictitious Kingdom in Africa) that operated in stealth in the continent of Africa. He would rank as one of the top 5 greatest minds in the world and considered an elite superhero, even defeating America’s Hero, Captain America.

Yet, this awe inspiring story was not the creation of a Black man.

The entertainment industry have been profiting quite handsomely for several years now off of many Comic Heroes and stories.
As mentioned, some of these stories have been altered (for self – creativity and progressive direction), at times, these changes have disappointed the loyal Comic Community and others have accepted it. From minor alterations to bolder decisions, there has been plenty of room made to constantly invoke new ideas.

Such as the direction, Marvel Studios president, Kevin Feige had taken when hiring director Ryan Coogler (Fruitvale Station and Creed) on-board.

Marvel explains that Black Panther will be one of the last superhero characters to get their own stand-alone film. Feige also admits that, “He’s [Black Panther] important” to the future of the Marvel Universe.
In addition to Coolger directing the film, Feige announces that Black Panther would be the first Marvel film to feature a majority black cast, with Chadwick Boseman (42) already casts’ as Black Panther.

“It was important they remained faithful to the comic and the character’s origins”, shared Feige.

For all Marvel fans, comic/action movie enthusiasts and Melaninated People this should be promising and exciting.

One would be curious to, Captain America star, Anthony Mackie‘s thoughts on the decisions and directions of Marvel’s selection of Ryan Coogler, as director. The actor made a statement saying, “The race of the director shouldn’t factor into the decision.

I don’t think it’s important at all (having a Black Director)”, Mackie expresses. “As a director your job is to tell a story. You know, they didn’t get a horse to direct ‘Seabiscuit!’…
Comments like these weigh heavily in the Melanin community especially when, at times, they seem slighted against a shared race. Many times the vocal party would be labeled “cooning“.

What are your thoughts?

Black Panther is scheduled to be released on Feb. 16, 2018.

Why Is My Orange Green?
In order for one to understand “why“, one must recognize Hybridization and be able to date this practice to ages ago.
Procedures such as Crossbreeding and Hybridizing was the practice of creating new plants and animals from two or more different wild species. The new species carried the characteristics of it’s dissimilar parents, yet was unique. This enabled cultivation and control by creating or domesticating various plant and animal life. This would allow for the new species to survive in regions and various conditions that the parents could not.
For example; Wheat, what we know as wheat was hybridized. Wheat was the result of rural growth. Plant life could not thrive in this environment, and with the growth of the population, there was a demand for a “food” source that could aid in the supply, providing for the populations.
This concept may confuse, anger and frighten many. Especially when one must confront the fact that many of the foods in which we consume today, were created…”Yesterday“, such as carrots or bananas. Bananas, the fruit that has become familiar in America, is less than 60years old.

When trying to identify plants, one must understand three of the main Characteristics Of A Plant:

"All Real Seeds Are Black"

“All Real Seeds Are Black”

  1. Seeds (All Real Seeds Are Black)
  2. Roots
  3. Leaves/Fruit

Without these characteristics there cannot be (consistent) natural growth.

Some common hybrid fruits are: seedless apples, several date varieties like kiwis, seedless pineapples, seedless citrus fruit, seedless grapes, seedless persimmons, seedless watermelons and strawberries.

  • Common hybrid vegetables include: beets, carrots, corn, potatoes, celery, and cauliflower.
  • Common hybrid nuts, seeds and beans include: cashews, oats, rice, wheat, wheat grass, soy, legumes, and most beans.
  • Common hybrid herbs include: Goldenseal, Ginseng, Echinacea, Chamomile, DonQuay, Aloe Vera, Nut Meg, Comfrey and Garlic.

 

Hybrid List

Food is medicine, which is why it is important to understand what hybrid foods are and to be able to identify them. These changes and manipulations result in the loss of it’s proper mineral balance (Molecular structure) that wild foods contain. Therefore, when one consumes an ample amount of hybrid fruit, the body becomes deficient of minerals, compounded by high, unnatural sugar and starch content. These changes forces the body to absorb the minerals from the bones, into the blood to balance/neutralize the sugar, and none of this is healthy for the liver and pancreas.

Are All Hybrid Foods Unhealthy?

If an animal or plant is unable to reproduce (without artificial help), by definition, that creature is Unhealthy. When one consumes that element, at best, macronutrients are absorbed, but micronutrients are lost.

For instance, plants that grow in depleted soil with chemical fertilizers would not contain all the minerals and phytonutrients, they would normally receive in the wild. They would also be exposed to far less stress, therefore, less hormesis happens, and the plant synthesizes antioxidants along with other micronutrients.
