"Non-melenated". Racist buzzword for the new century?
I've gotta say, it beats "miscegenation" by a mile.

'Hue' man condition? Tell me this is a poe. Please. It sounds exactly like the crazy bullshit most of the white supremecists accuse black people of secretly plotting.

I don't think it's a Poe. Attempting to build theories around misguided prejudice and shoving polysyllabic words in in an attempt to sound like they know what they're talking about is a sadly common yet hilarious method of rationalisation.

White people do have melanin. We just have less of it.

I see what you did there.

I have freckles and I'm a quarter Middle-Eastern... uhh... I'm confused.

The lack of empathy among white people has nothing to do with melanin and much to do with having a religiously-induced superiority complex.

Just proof positive that Black Supremacists are just as stupid as White Supremacists.
LOL, "SPIRITUAL CALCIFICATION associated with chronic melanin deficiency."
This is comedic gold. I need to show this to my doctor one of these days. As busy as he is these days he could use one of those good laughs that brings you to the point of having a pain in your side. Lol

And as a black person myself these idiots need to stop this shit. This (along with some genuine racism in some people) is part of the reason why black scholars in the Anthropology and Archaeology fields are often not taken seriously when studying African history. Even perfectly legitimate black scholars. Racists like to use morons like this as "proof" that black scholars who specialize in Africa are all "Afrocentrists" with crackpot ideas like this.
Unfortunately racists use crap like this to act as if only what white or non-black scholars on Africa have to say is legitimate. Particularly if they have something negative or seemingly negative to say.

Interesting... so you're saying that all or most white people are sociopaths... *canned laughter* Yeah right.
Here's some food for thought: imagine, if you will, an alternate history wherein Africa and Asia made all the advances that European nations made in real life, while Europe itself remained stagnant. Now, let us imagine that these African nations developed their version of the Age of Exploration and the Industrial Revolution, and came into contact with the primitive and backward Europe for the first time. Do you believe that they would treat the indigenous Europeans with any more kindness than Europeans treated non-Europeans in our own timeline?
I don't think so. Humans are bastards no matter what race or religion they are. Europe is only perceived as being worse or aberrant because it managed to get away with racial oppression for so long. The Japanese aren't white, yet they committed some of the worst atrocities of World War II. Oh wait, these guys believe in the pseudoscientific melanin power idea, so they should not be taken seriously. Some of them believe that black people have special powers derived from the sun, which no one has been able to demonstrate. We have a twofer.
We had better hope that Stormfront or Sarah Maid of Albion or another racist website never discover these people, or both sides will leap to the conclusion that they were right all along.

Melanin blocks UV rays. People with ancestors near the equator have more melanin because they tended to have more sun exposure. Because the human body also uses UV rays to generate vitamin D, the effect is less useful the closer one is to the poles, thus those people have less melanin. The amount of melanin in the skin affects its color.
Of course, you would know all of this if you ever bothered to study what you are going on about.

That's just- Fucking genius. I love you racists and the amazing elaborate shit you come up with to avoid saying "I hate white/black people because my mother is my aunt".

@Brendan Rizzo - Amen.
If you read African history even though Africans didn't have war quite as often as Europeans (partially because most of Africa has lower population density than Western and Central Europe) they were no less bloodthirsty, backstabbing, cruel or merciless than ancient and medieval Europeans and Asians. Ancient Egypt, which always had a significant black populace, has a history which attests to that. As did Nubia, Axum, Mali, the Oyo Empire, Abyssinia, Somalia, the Swahili city-states, etc. Memnon the Conqueror (who was implied to be from what's now Sudan or Ethiopia) conquered northern Africa, the Arabian Peninsula, Canaan and Mesopotamia/Sumeria the same way the Romans and Alexander the Great dominated others. During the 25th Dynasty in Egypt Nubia conquered Egypt, part of Arabia and Judea for over 100 years and biblical texts attest to their mistreatment of the native Hebrew people.
In medieval times the urban rulers of the Swahili city-states would send troops to go dominate and capture locals from non-Swahili tribes and kingdoms (whom they called "shenzi" as an insult) in the interior of Africa to sell them as slaves in the Swahili-Arab-Persian slave trade in the Indian Ocean leg of the Silk Road on the eastern coast of Africa. The Mali and Songhai Empires used Napoleon-esque tactics to conquer and dominate their neighbors, including subjecting some Berber people as well near the fringes of the territorial limits of their empire; until the Almoravid Dynasty finally defeated them instead. Not to mention the involvement of West African kings in the Atlantic Slave Trade....

@Brendan Rizzo - Black Supremacist types never seem to remember Africa wasn't a peaceful utopia until the evil white man came along. Europe just dominated because 1) they had the good fortune of living in a geographically advantageous area (the calmer North Atlantic waters, with Iceland and Greenland as way-points, compared to the stormier South Atlantic waters and partially blockaded Indian Ocean); 2) Europe took advantage of increasing access to the Middle Eastern empires and Asia while Africa's trade routes with the Middle East and Asia were being blocked; 3) #2 caused a slow decline of many powerful African economic centers such as Mali/Songhai, Abyssinia, Somalia, the Swahili city-states and Great Zimbabwe. By the 16 and 1700s many African empires and economic centers were falling into their own "dark age" with the steep drop in international trade being caused by the Arab Slade Trade and the Arab, Persian and Ottoman economic blockades. The Almoravid conquest of Mali, the wars between Abyssinia and Somalia, the economic stagnation of Sudan, and the fall of Zanzibar, Madagascar and various islands to Arabs and the Europeans. The European invention of the repeating rifle sealed the fate of most of Africa until after WWII as it allowed the Europeans to finally conquer the coastal African military strongholds and push further inland. Europeans were just in the right place at the right time and had the right inventions at the right time.
Had the above not occurred Africa might have gone in a similar route like Europe did. The Mali Empire had also been trying to reach the New World since the late 13th/early 14th century under Mansa Musa and Sonni Ali. Abyssinia had invented a matchlock rifle some time before the 1600s and had been tinkering with ways to use steam as a power source, and the Haya peoples of Tanzania had created a process to create carbon steel in high-temperature blast furnaces.

Do you not see the irony in seriously suggesting that racism is an inherent racial trait? Is not suggesting that one's race makes them think or behave a certain way the definition of racism?
6/12/2011 7:19:52 PM
This reads like a magazine advert for some form of medicine that contains melanin.

Oooohh! Black on White Bigotry! This is a change of pace!
And did you know that intelligence can be measured by the size of your nose? It's true! MENSA-cases all have massive schnozzes!!! Ringo Starr is 100,000% times smarter than Stephen Hawking! Indeed! The Mad Scientists at The Scientific Authority on Nothing in People's Democratic Sith Empire of Seatopia say so!

So that would make rich vain yuppies who tan themselves to wrinkled brown leather versions of their former selves more spiritually pure than the poorer white folk who can't afford to flash fry themselves in Solariums?
