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”
Seeds (All Real Seeds Are Black)
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.
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.
Take A Moment To Watch And Share; Why Is My Orange Green?
“As American as Apple Pie“? No. That would not fit here, because America, at least for the past week, has shown that Sweet Potato Pie is the new icon.
Since James Wright’s review went viral, Walmart sold one pie per second for 72hours straight last weekend.
Since Walmart’s release of the celebrity endorsed Sweet Potato Pie, sales were good, but it was not until the publication of a Video Review, produced by James Wright, on YouTube that within 24 hours after the video was posted on November 12, 2015, “sales data was showing a nationwide surge in pie purchases“, shared Walmart spokesman John Forrest Ales.
Due to the popularity Walmart had worked to restock it’s sweet potato pies after the viral video caused a massive surge in demand across the country.
The pie retails for $3.48. The viral video, made by now popular pitchman, James Wright, can possibly take responsibility for aiding in inflated sales of pies on eBay, recorded as much as $40!
Make no mistake, this is not an article looking to add to the hype, but to point out important perspectives and call out a wrong on Pattie Labelle‘s part.
Recently #TMZ’s cameraman catches Patti Labelle before entering a building and asks her about her success with her, endorsed, Sweet Potato Pie sales due to James Wright’s viral video review…
Patti Labelle adamantly takes full credit for the over a million dollars sales spike in less than a week, despite James Wright’s video review popularity.
“I did it myself“, Patti affirms.
“I was selling out pies before the guy did his wonderful video“, Patti explains.
Patti Labelle was able to express her regards for Mr. Wright’s singing ability and potential in that area.
“He’s a wonderful singer and he’s just a wonderful guy”, she said.
Since James’ review went viral, Walmart sold one pie per second for 72 hours straight last weekend.
So did Patti really, “do it herself“? Clearly Patti is exaggerating and disregarding the power of “word of mouth” and more importantly, Black Purchase Power.
In 2013, Black Buying Power was projected to reach 1.1trillion dollars!
There are 43 million Melanoid Americans in the United States, 13.7 percent of the total population. The “Black” race is the second largest racial minority in the country. The median age is 32 and 47 percent are under 35 years of age.
Despite these impressive numbers and buying power most mainstream advertisers are not inclusive. They fail to include “Black“, Melanoid people in media and marketing plans and have underestimated the market size.
If we were to reminisce to the 1900’s, a neighborhood called Greenwood in Tulsa, Oklahoma was one of the most successful and wealthiest Melanoid communities in the United States.
Home to successful Black businessmen, affluent residents, restaurants, grocery stores, movie theaters, hospitals, banks, libraries, schools, law offices, private airplanes and a commuter bus system.
This was “Black Wall Street“, which could be today’s blueprint for Black Economics. Black Economics is essential to the rise and power of the Melanoid People. It is cases such as Walmart’s pies and the Missouri University “Black” students protests that set the precedence for how Black communities should be operating.
During the 1900’s, in Greenwood, Tulsa, Oklahoma, the dollar circulated 36 to 100 times, sometimes taking a year for currency to leave the community. Now a dollar leaves the Black community in 15 minutes.
This is terrifying to anyone who dreams of a better way for Melanoid people. Economic power is critical. Unfortunately, Patti Labelle’s situation is a snapshot of what happens a lot. Patti does not own the company that produces the sweet potato pies or will she profit from the success of it’s sales. Not in the manner as W. Galen Weston has. Instead her image is what is used to lure consumers.
These practices are not difficult to repeat.
What is difficult is gaining loyalty from the “Melaninated” Nations and when unity is achieved, maintaining consistency.
Above all, like the Dominant Society, the plans and actions of the Melaninated communities must be covert. The use of Social Media and other technological platforms are necessary, but with so much and many against the growth of Black Nations, stealthy actions would be vital to Black Economical Growth.
So as powerful as it is for the “Black Dollar” to circulate, it is equally as powerful for it to stall.
Weigh these thoughts when deciding what business you wish or wish not to support.
Lastly; one thing is for certain, Patti may have sold many pies but it sure ain’t better than my mama’s!
Why are so many Nations at war with Syria?
What are your thoughts on David Cameron?
Is China really bad?
These are questions that many may have, and often questions such as these are answered with the most benign response, propagandized filler or obvious lies.
How refreshing would it be, to have a Reporter, “Give it to you straight”? Johnathan Pie does just that! Here (Spoof Reporter) Johnathan Pie delivers the news on the lawn with the view of the Palace Of Westminster in focus, during a familiar day in London.
Bothered by the weather conditions, the reporter questions the studio’s need to capture the reporting in this state and suggests for an “in-studio” recording. This is where one is led to believe he is insulted by a Studio Official. This angers the reporter and persuades him to…
Deliver “The f*..ing News!”
Remember, this is a spoof, but as my father always said…”We often joke the truth!“.
When “They” ask a question and are not prepared for the truth, this is the result!
How often do you think about the foods that you put in your mouth?
Did you know that there are a lot of fruits and vegetables that can potentially improve the quality of your life and most importantly, increase the longevity of it as well?
Though delightful at times, foods main purpose is to be sustenance, “medicine“. This is the reason why it is extremely dangerous for one to not regulate and filter dangerous foods out of their diet.
Working against the people are Corporations and Government Agencies that forcefully manipulate the foods in which we eat and feed our children. Blatantly poisoning the public.
Therefore it is everyone’s responsibility to be diligent in adopting proper, healthy nutritional practices. In addition to performing, safe and effective, physical, mental and Spiritual exercises.
We can sometimes overlook simple technics and easy to obtain remedies that can rejuvenate the body, almost, over-night.
For instance; Turmeric: An Indian perennial herb, it is part of the Ginger family. This wonderful herb is associated with producing extraordinary Cardiovascular Health Benefits.
There are enough studies to support this claim, unfortunately, your average physician probably would not prescribe this over some “drug of the week“.
A study published by the American Journal Of Cardiology, found Turmeric Extracts reduced post-bypass Heart Attack risk by 56%. Along with those findings, Curcumin: The primary polyphenol in Turmeric (responsible for the spice’s yellow-brown color), is just as beneficial in improving vascular function in postmenopausal women as a moderate aerobic exercise. At no point are we saying cancel your gym membership, but clearly, the use of these supplements coupled with proper exercise can “reduce morbidity and mortality associated with cardiovascular disease“.
The areas where Turmeric and Curcumin benefit most; aiding in a healthier inner lining of the blood vessels, improving the arterial elasticity and endothelial function.
Understand that poor endothelial function is a warning for Atherosclerosis!
Information like this should make for an easy sale for one to add these two wonders to their diet and supplementing. To aide, we put a short list of other benefits to Turmeric and our latest Show; entitled, Women And Men’s Fitness: Love And Light With Goddess Yadira.
In this show we discuss the many benefits to healthy nutritional practices, the differences in benefits between men and women, countless tips for weight loss, stress and Spiritual strength.
Arthritis: Turmeric contains more than two dozen anti-inflammatory compounds.
Cancer Preventing: More than 200 citations (Duke) for Turmeric benefits related to cancer and more than 700 for Curcumin and cancer.
Indigestion/Stomach Cure: Because of Turmeric’s anti-inflammatory properties, it is able to stabilize the stomach acids.
Cardiovascular Strength: Promotes cleaner/healthier blood vessel lining and arterial elasticity.
Fat Burner: Great dietary aid for burning fat without the dangers associated with certain pills and “magic-diets”.
Prevents Alzheimer: Note that it through a supplement that one can benefit from this. One would not get enough Curcumin from regular dietary use.
Depression Aid Treatment: The antioxidants in Curcumin makes Turmeric the “Magic-Spice”, the antioxidant agents work similarly to antidepressants.
Lowers Cholesterol: *See Cardiovascular Strength*
Retards Aging: From the anti-inflammatory compounds that reduce redness to healing properties when applied to the skin directly!
Prevents Childhood Leukemia: It is particularly effective at preventing CH Leukemia. Many studies support this claim and it is mostly attributed to Curcumin.
A question that will Provoke Thought and earn many responses is, Is My Blackness Offensive? Is all Fifty Shades Of Brown of it?
Which leads to another question… What “shade” was and was not acceptable the night Lin Mei and her 2 friends were not admitted into Club DSTRK, because they were, “too dark” and “too fat”?
“Refused entry: Zalika Miller (far left) pictured with her friends Reisha (centre left), Tasha (center right) and Lin Mei (right). Reisha and Tasha were allegedly told they were “overweight” and “too dark” to enter DSTRK Night Club.”
The incident in which two young Black women were turned away at Club DSTRKT’s door for allegedly being “too dark” and “too fat”.
#DSTRKT, a popular Night Club in the West End of London, that has housed many “A” list celebrities, “has galvanized a strong social media following supported by the hashtag #DoILookDstrkt”
In the video below, Lin Mei, 29, describes the details of the night she witnessed her friends, Reisha and Tasha, asked to stand across the street from DSTRKT so the manager could look at them properly.
The two women were then allegedly told they were “overweight” and “too dark”!
This despite their names potentially being on the guest list
Do you remember the incident that took place on July 09th, 2014, where Seattle resident; 69 year old, William Wingate was arrested by Seattle Police Officer Cynthia Whitlatch?
Well… “Police Chief Kathleen O’Toole signed off Tuesday (Sept.15th, 2015) on findings by the department’s Office of Professional Accountability that Whitlatch, 48, broke the department’s rules in the arrest.”
Therefore she was fired.
Seattle Police Officer Cynthia Whitlatch Fired For Abuse Of Power
For those who have not followed this story…
SPDO Cynthia Whitlatch drove up on William Wingate, on the corner of an intersection, as he was peacefully doing nothing, using his club for support like a cane.
Whitlatch exits her cruiser immediately asking for Wingate to drop his golf club, “I am not going to take it from you but it is a weapon!”, Whitlatch claims.
Wingate questions the reason for her presence and refuses to release his club for support. Whitlatch demands that he drops the club again, she continues to inform Wingate that the entire scene is being recorded and escalates the situation by, falsely, accusing Wingate of swinging his club at her, “You just swang that club at me!” An appalled Wingate objects immediately and demands that she calls for another officer, “You call somebody I want a witness”.
“The white Seattle officer who arrested an African-American man she claimed swung a golf club at her was fired Tuesday for her racial bias and combative approach, the city’s police chief said.”
Despite the many accomplishments, Man has proven to be the most violent and destructive “Animal” on the planet. The abuse, waste and theft of resources around the World is astounding.
With Africa seated at the top of the list in resources in the World, it is exploited heinously by many countries and nations around the world. Increasing the wealth of these nations…without regard and prohibiting the people of this glorious continent to “eat from it’s own plate“!
So there is no surprise that Africa rates equally as high with Poaching. From animal fur, body parts, organs to highly sort after Ivory. These Poachers are responsible for the illegal killing and endangering these animal’s very existence. Take the Black Rhino; “since 1960 their population has been reduced by 97.6%“, but change is coming!
This change is delivered in a powerful package; with the support of activist in the United States, “retired vets take part in an organization that puts their years of combat training to work”, aiding the African Park Rangers. Their efforts are focused on reducing the loss and ending poaching.
The achievement will be made by VETPAW (Veterans Empowered To Protect Wildlife).
Their highlight addition is;
Kinessa Johnson: US Army Veteran.
What is Kinessa and her team’s mission in Africa? Her focus is to train the African Park Rangers in areas of marksmanship, field medicine and counter-intelligence. With 187 African Park Rangers lives lost at the hands of poachers, prior to the aide, such training is crucial to everyone’s survival and, most importantly, maintaining the safety and protection of the animals and Park Rangers.
Johnson and her team had set their sites on Tanzania, in March of 2015. After putting their plans into effect and due to their strong presence, a reduction in poaching activity was immediately noticed. This is why it was critical to train the Park Rangers and provide support.
Kinessa joined VETPAW because she loves animals, and because protecting endangered species is a cause that speaks to her heart. Kinessa explains, “After the first obvious priority of enforcing existing poaching laws, educating the locals on protecting their country’s natural resources is most important overall.”

Women have been experiencing Menstrual Pains for ages.
Some are mild discomforts as others are debilitating.
A woman’s menstrual cycle can dictate their lifestyle. Once a month being the dreaded anticipation.
So there is no surprise to the amount of Home Remedies and products available for women, to aide them through this hellacious period.

Exercise and diet. Exercising, aside from increasing ones’ quality of health, is recorded in easing cramps during a menstrual cycle.
Proper exercise can also help with relieving Mental Stress as well. Stress being another symptom during a woman’s cycle.
“Supplementation with vitamins and minerals is also beneficial during menstruation“
So let’s understand how this works.
First we have water-soluble Vitamins; B-Complex and C. They dissolve in water and are not stored by the body.
Since they are eliminated in urine, we require a continuous daily supply in our diet.
Then one must understand that certain vitamins require the pairing of minerals to be truly effective.
So what can women do or use to help with; acne, depression, moodiness, breast – tenderness, cramps and nausea?
The complete B-Complex!
“The B- vitamins, in general, are involved in the building of biological chemicals, and B6 seems to have a special role in the production of female Hormones.“
“The more B6 is around, the better your estrogen will work.“
Herbal remedies such as; Chamomile, Fennel, Ginger, Cinnamon and Mint are used in different forms to ease cramps and other symptoms associated with menstruation.
Mint, Chamomile and Ginger can be used in teas… If smoothies are your thing, drop some cucumbers and beets in there. One would be surprised by the positive effects.
