The science of why Superman would need dark-colored skin to power his special abilities.
Superman should be black.
By that I mean he should have dark skin, and not that he’s African-American or any other person of color. After all, the Man of Steel is from the planet Krypton, not Earth.
In the movie Man of Steel, Superman asks his biological father why he’s different from humans. As Jor-El explains: “Earth’s Sun is younger and brighter than Krypton’s was – your cells have drunk in its radiation, strengthening your muscles, your skin, your senses.”
Photosynthetic species – including a Kryptonian like Superman – living on a world orbiting a relatively inactive star would need dark pigments to harvest light.
Pale-skin is no more adapted to cold, dark climates than it is to anywhere else.
Contrary to popular claims, pale skin is not an adaptation to lack of sunlight. If that were so, then the darkest places in West Asia (“Europe”), which have the world’s palest people, wouldn’t have the highest rates of skin cancer. If pale skin “evolved” because people needed to absorb more sunlight rather than be protected from it, then the sparse sunlight of northwest Asia (northern “Europe”) would not harm the pale people there. But this is not so. In fact, that is the place of the highest rates of skin cancer:
It should be noted that, this is an EU map, and Norway is not part of the EU. If it were, it would likely be amongst the other northern countries (Sweden,Denmark & Finland) with the highest skin cancer rates.
Now the following maps does not list country names, but if you have some knowledge of where the previous chart’s leading countries for skin cancer are, you will see that they coincide with paler skin (1st map below) and paler eyes & hair (2nd map below).
So if pale skin were an adaptation to sparse sunlight, then why are pale-skinned people so ill-adapted?
And if you don’t need skin color to be protected from the sun in dark, cold, snowy climates, then how do you explain snowburn?
You’ve heard this “theory” many times, but it’s simply not true. If it were so, Far West Asian (Western “European”) explorers would not have needed winter clothes in South America while brown-skinned natives went naked:
Despite the extremely cold climate in which they lived, early Yahgan wore little to no clothing until after their extended contact with Europeans. They were able to survive the harsh climate because:
They kept warm by huddling around small fires when they could, including in their boats to stay warm. The name of “Tierra del Fuego” (land of fire) was based on the many fires seen by passing European explorers.
They made use of rock formations to shelter from the elements.
Pale-skinned people need as much- or more- protection from the cold than everyone else. And even in the darkest of places, their skin is still not protected from the sun. So neither the pale skin, nor the relatively narrower facial features, nor any musculo-skeletal or cranial features of the “white” “race” are an adaptation to cold.
Pale skin is not suited to sunlight, at least not the light of this sun. So why do people keep claiming that it is? Perhaps the reference is not to this sun, but the Black Sun of Theosophy & Esoteric ‘Nazism’/Esoteric Hitlerism, popularized in the Soundgarden hit “Black Hole Sun”?
Could the source of energy and life on earth have once been another sun, to which pale skin was suited? Could the earth have later broken away somehow until being captured by the gravity of our current star? That would certainly make sense out legends of floods and underground civilizations, and the documented Ice Age and need of West Asians (“Europeans”) to live in caves. Here’s an interesting video about life on earth between suns:
64,000 African-American women and girls are missing. Where are they? The dark past of the American medical history, and the miraculous applications of melanin, hold important clues…
Dedicated to Kenyon Mason
Bring Back Our Girls
64,000 African-Americans girls are reported missing, but nobody’s looking for them. Why?
Despite representing 12.85% of the population, black Americans accounted for nearly 226,000 — or 34% — of all missing persons reported in 2012. According to the FBI’s National Crime Information Center, the comparison with other racial groups is unfavorable: Whites and Hispanics are a combined 80.1% of the population, but account for 60% of missing persons.
This is especially troubling when you break down the numbers by age. Black and Missing reports that 37% of missing minors and 28.2% of missing adults in 2013 were black. No fewer than 270,000 minorities have gone missing since 2010, 135,000 of whom were black and 64,000 were black women, according to the Atlanta Black Star.
Essence points to a 2010 report titled “Missing Children in National News Coverage,” which found that while black children accounted for 33.2% of missing children that year, the media exposure rate was an unimpressive 19.5%. While black men go missing at statistically higher rates, coverage of black female disappearances is particularly telling in light of the attention similar stories get when white women are involved.
“In the field, I’ve seen a majority of black missing children classified as runaways, who don’t get Amber Alerts.”
No way the same US government and media that gave so much attention to 2-300 Nigerian girls would ignore 64,000(!) its own, unless there was a reason. The most likely reason is organ harvesting, and the the skin is the body’s biggest organ. Considering America’s dark history of medical exploitation of Blacks, this isn’t as far-fetched as it seems at first.
First of all, there’s a long history of medical research using unwitting/unwilling African-American women for medical experiments:
on the 19th century medical plantation—a locality spatially separate from the agricultural plantation—black women’s bodies were imagined as the ideal test subjects of research and innovation within what became modern gynecology.
It’s a MARKET. The medical industry cannot advance without unwitting/unwilling Black subjects. Cells secretly harvested, and later cultivated from a Black woman are the source of ALL cells used for medical research- vaccines, cloning, testing, etc. “This represented an enormous boon to medical and biological research” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henrietta_Lacks
So, yes, if a multi-billion dollar, multi-national, centuries old industry is based on the bodies of stolen and captive Black female bodies, then it will continue along the same lines that it has succeeded: stealing black women, experimenting with them, and harvesting their biological material.
Melanin: More Than Just A Color
You also need to be aware of just how badly pale (“white”) people actually need melanin, the many ways that they use it, and the price of melanin on the market.
Meladine is “an “Accessory to a Surgical Laser Instruments used for Hair Removal” to enhance the effects of lasers for the treatment of non-pigmented hair”.
It “simply deposits natural melanin into the hair follicle which aids the laser in targeting the hair follicle for removal… simply deposits natural melanin into the hair follicle which aids the laser in targeting the hair follicle for removal.”
So, to think that the pharmaceutical industry, which, like any other industry, puts profits before morals, would take “unethically-sourced” melanin is probably a very sane thought, making the opposing thought, of course, insane.
Melanin: Fountain of Youth?
Let’s go back to Henrietta Lacks, whose cells are the source of all medical research cells. What made her cells so special? They wouldn’t die.
The cells from Henrietta’s tumor were given to researcher George Gey, who “discovered that [Henrietta’s] cells did something they’d never seen before: They could be kept alive and grow.” Before this, cells cultured from other cells would only survive for a few days. Scientists spent more time trying to keep the cells alive than performing actual research on the cells, but some cells from Lacks’s tumor sample behaved differently from others. George Gey was able to isolate one specific cell, multiply it, and start a cell line. Gey named the sample HeLa, after the initial letters of Henrietta Lacks’ name. As the first human cells grown in a lab that were “immortal” (they do not die after a few cell divisions), they could be used for conducting many experiments. (wikipedia)
This was probably because of their melanin. My theory is that Lacks’s cells were the first black person’s cells harvested and tested, hence their surprise at the difference melanin made.
There’s a popular expression “Black don’t crack”, and it’s true that healthy melanated people who eat a healthy natural diet don’t seem to age. This woman is 74 years old!
So the need for melanin goes far beyond avoiding skin cancer. It’s the key to life itself.
When you consider that a body fails to produce melanin only if and when the pineal gland is calcified- a fossilized organ in the center of a living brain!- you see how melanin is involved in much more than skin color and skin cancer. Read this astounding comment to the Washington Post article “Scientists Find A DNA Change That Accounts For White Skin”
Europeans also have a calcified Pineal Gland which is responsible for the production of melanin (skin pigmentation), melatonin (the hormone that induces sleep), and seratonin (responsible for strong mental health and ‘happiness’) this is NOT true for Albinos. Albinos can produce a child of COLOR this is NOT true for Europeans. 70-80% of Europeans have a calcified Pineal Gland, whereas Black people have a fully functioning Pineal Gland.
Melanin is a natural skin block from UV rays of the sun. This is why White people put on things like sunscreen. Sunscreen is nothing more than an artificial form of melanin. Melanin basically converts sunlight into vitamin D which is essential for bone growth, and the natural protection against diseases. Black people, much like plants, LITERALLY convert sunlight into vitamin D. White people can’t do that that is why, as the article states, EVERYTHING has Vitamin D added to it. That is for the benefit of WHITE PEOPLE not for us. That is ALSO the reason that Black people are the most prone to being lactose intolerant and White people AREN’T. You are NOT supposed to drink milk after a certain age because you body no longer NEEDS IT. White people do. How many animals in nature do you see still drinking their mother’s milk after a certain age?? You don’t because they DON’T NEED IT. Black people need to STOP drinking milk.
The calcification of the Pineal Gland meant the extremely LOW production of melanin which caused White people’s skin to become ‘white’ NOT Albino white. I guarantee if you do some research into decalcifying your Pineal Gland which is most commonly known as the ‘Third Eye’ you’ll find about a million websites on it. Now why is that?? Because White people are just now finding out what the Pineal Gland is FOR. They used to think it was an unnecessary appendage like the appendix. So they have to mislead you into thinking it is nothing more than a small genetic mutation that ‘doesn’t matter’.
To Infinity and Beyond
Watch the following short video, showing how the skin looks in UV light. It gets really interesting at 1:18 :
There definitely are planets with atmospheres similar enough to ours to sustain human life. However, they may not have the same kind of sun or source of light, or the same kind of atmospheric protection from the many different types of light and other radiation that ours does. In a harsher environment, melanin would be key. It’s a safe bet that melanin is necessary to space travel and colonization of planets. All the more reason to harvest and study it.
Several studies have shown that whites attribute supernatural,extrasensory and magicalmental and physical qualitiesto blacks. Black children are often seen as years older than their actual age.
Darren Wilson’s testimony describing Michael Brown’s almost superhuman strength reflects common, subconscious perceptions about black people in America.  Watch the video here: Superhumanization Bias on MSNBC
According to a new study by the American Psychological Association, Black children from the ages of 10 are seen as older and less innocent than their White peers.
‘With the average age overestimation for black boys exceeding four-and-a-half years, in some cases, black children may be viewed as adults when they are just 13 years old.’
What does this mean?
It means that Black children are often perceived to be guilty and face police violence if accused of a crime.
“‘The study, published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, sought to examine the extent to which the racial bias exists and how significant the consequences are. Speaking on the report, Phillip Atiba Goff, PhD, explained, ‘Children in most societies are considered to be in a distinct group with characteristics, such as innocence and the need for protection. Our research found that Black boys can be seen as responsible for their actions at an age when White boys still benefit from the assumption that children are essentially innocent.’” 
We humans are mesmerized by melanin, the pigment that gives color to our skin, but almost always for quite the wrong reasons.
Clearly melanin is a handy and fascinating compound, with an intriguing evolutionary history. But because its effects are so visible in our skin, it has for centuries been made to bear an utterly undeserved burden of sociological and political significance. As is detailed elsewhere in this issue, there are far more genetic differences among the people who make up these arbitrary constructs we call races than there are differences between races. It is time to move away from simplistic efforts to explain all our differences in terms of just one molecule and to pay attention to the tens of thousands of other molecules that make up our wondrously complex cells–and selves.
Neuromelanin isn’t obviously related to skin pigment. People with albinism, who have no melanin in their skin, hair, or eyes, have normal amounts of melanin in their brain cells.
As for the real significance of brain melanin, the jury is still out–we have no idea what it does. We do know that a lot of it is found in the substantia nigra (the “black substance”), a darkly colored structure buried deep in the brain that makes dopamine. We also know that melanin- rich cells in the substantia nigra are the ones most likely to be destroyed in people who have Parkinson’s disease, resulting in tremors and rigidity. But whether this preferential destruction is due to some property of the neuromelanin or is the result of some other process that just happens to destroy neuromelanin-rich cells is not yet clear. What is clear is that.
