You ever wonder why black people seem to have so much “sauce“? Well, the answer is in the melanin.
Just be clear, when I say “sauce” I mean the ability to enthusiastically exhibit style and personality with harmonious, yet dramatic flair. In other words, be fly, cool, hip, with-the-sh*s, dope, on beat, have universal rhythm or have swag.
What is Melanin?
The U.S. National Library of Medicine (The National Center for Biotechnology Information) explains the circumstance of melanin in the skin:
“Dermal melanin is produced by melanocytes, which are found in the stratum basale of the epidermis. Although human beings generally possess a similar concentration of melanocytes in their skin, the melanocytes in some individuals and races more frequently or less frequently express the melanin-producing genes, thereby conferring a greater or lesser concentration of skin melanin. Some individual animals and humans have no or very little melanin in their bodies, which is a condition known as albinism.”
Edward Bruce Bynum, Ph. D, clinical psychologist and author of Dark Light Consciousness – Melanin, Serpent Power, and the Luminous Matrix of Reality explains in another way how we are integrated with melanin:
“In the biosphere of living organisms like us, this dark material is called eumelanin, phaeomelanin, or allomelanin. As mentioned earlier, in our spine, brain stem, the intricate labyrinth of the brain core, and brain, this black neural material is called neuromelanin. It is highly sensitive to light, movement, and the shift of energy transformations from one state to another. It has a high iron content that makes it especially sensitive to weak but detectable influences of terrestrial magnetism.”.
The Science of “Sauce“
When you understand the nature of melanin you’ll understand why black and brown people have so much “sauce” – the ability to enthusiastically exhibit style and personality with harmonious, yet dramatic flair.
Someone with efficient levels of melanin can detect, absorb, and transform more energies than someone who is melanin deficient.
This is how black (melanated) people have maintained the capacity to be aligned with nature and the universe for million of years, we are a reflection of the blackness in the cosmos. Under normal conditions (before we adopted the customs of melanin deficient people – europeans), our melanated bodies would be in tuned with the frequency of the planet. Every ancient indigenous culture around the planet reflects that.
Don’t think it’s just an ancient thing. It’s pretty obvious that Black people have set the standard for what’s “cool” and what’s “possible” in America and abroad. We are the best at everything. We are the fastest. We are the smartest. We are the strongest. How? Melanin.
The melanated body is not just some “thing”, it’s much more complicated than that. Your body, ranging from light brown to dark brown to black, is an ultra-light sensitive melanated shell with the capacity to absorb and disperse energies at will with your non-physical mind.
This is how we FEEL the beat, and RESPOND ACCORDINGLY. Joining the harmony instead of disrupting it.
We exhibit this “sauce” in every area of activity, especially in America. I say that because the infrastructure of America was designed by melanin deficient people. Although like Tupac said, “we livin’ in a white man’s world”, we still outshine him at his own game. The planning of “the white man” can not account for the dominance, resilience, and mysteriousness of melanated people. Melanin is a chaotic substance, we are chaos beings.
The nature of melanin is to dominate and regulate according the living mathematics of the universe. If we are made with melanin, this our nature also. Melanated people, just like melanin, have many forms and variations, yet we are all dominate and aligned with the universe in our own unique way.
This is why Black (melanated) people have so much “sauce”.
Black People Invented Art
“Over 30,000 years ago, Black people produced the world’s oldest examples of painting in South Africa, the Sahara, Australia, and Southern Europe. Long before these murals, prehistoric Black communities enjoyed body art, performance art, spoken word poetry, sculpting, inter- pretive dance, and dozens of other artistic traditions.”
Black People Invented Dance
“All of the world’s dance traditions can be traced back to an African origin. Some are more closely related to traditional African dances than others. The world has many indigenous dance traditions, yet most can be connected to older traditions in Africa. Salsa, for example, comes from Kizomba.”
Black People Invented Style
“Black people invented art, fashion, and style. Why? The cooking should show you: Black people have taste. It may not be everyone’s taste, yet it’s always rich and flavorful. If not, it isn’t Black culture. It’s something water down and derivative, like modern mainstream pop culture!”
