F.A.R. will discuss the touchy subject of beauty enhancements as it applies to Black women and men. Are weaves, perms, wigs, dyed blonde hair etc. beauty enhancements or are they examples of self-hate? Are butt injections, butt implants and skin bleaching simply choices or are they examples of self-hate? How do we identify whether "beauty enhancements" are just choices or are actually rooted in self-hate that has been instilled in Black people culturally? Can we be proud to be Afrikan and move forward as a group with proper self-esteem while still doing these things. Join us to find out.
Skin Color, whether we want to believe it or not, is still the elephant in the living room in the hearts of Black people the world over.
While many Black people will readily cry out at the first sign of what they may feel is an encounter with racism, some of those same individuals will execute the same twisted mentality when dealing with people who are of their own race.
Other races of people will look on from the outside of this type of hypocrisy and remain befuddled as it just doesn't seem to add up properly.
How can one complain about being prejudged because of the color of their skin yet turn around and do the same damn thing to some of their own?
Most would agree that this behavior has been internalized after being made to believe that we are truly inferior after hundreds of years of mental indoctrination while in slavery.
This is the case all the way up to the present time with the media brainwashing that continues to perpetuate these foolish myths.
Too many Black people are buying into this hook, line and sinker!
"SOME" Blacks who are of a lighter skin complexion can oftentimes feel superior to those who are darker. Many (BUT NOT ALL!) darker complected Blacks feel as sense of inferiority when compared to the lighter skinned Blacks when it comes to the expected treatment that they feel they will get when going up for a job or being considered by a potential romantic partner.
Let me officially say that THIS IS NOT ALL!
But many of us who are truly conscious and know better can sometimes slip into this twisted way of thinking in our everyday lives.
While many will defend those hateful practices of plastic surgery to alter their features or bleaching cream to lighten their skin, the fact of the matter is that self hate is a huge business and those who seek to profit from it is are all wolves in sheeps clothing.

Blumenbach argued that physical characteristics like skin color, cranial profile depended on geography, diet, and mannerism."Finally, I am of opinion that after all these numerous instances I have brought together of negroes of capacity, it would not be difficult to mention entire well-known provinces of Europe, from out of which you would not easily expect to obtain off-hand such good authors, poets, philosophers, and correspondents of the Paris Academy and on the other hand, there is no so-called savage nation known under the sun which has so much distinguished itself by such examples of perfectibility and original capacity for scientific culture, and thereby attached itself so closely to the most civilized nations of the earth, as the Negro. Blumenbach held to the "degenerative hypothesis" of racial origins. Blumenbach claimed that adam and eve were caucasian (Georgian) inhabitants of Asia, and that other races came about by degeneration from environmental factors such as the sun and poor diet. Thus, he claimed, Negroid pigmentation arose because of the result of the heat of the tropical sun, while the cold wind caused the tawny colour of the eskimos, while the chinese were fair-skinned compared to the other Asian stocks because they kept mostly in towns protected from environmental factors and that all forms of man could revert to the caucasian race.
Last week, we set things on fire with our topic, "Black Racism: What's the Deal With the Hate?" Neither Sadie, nor I, nor the callers gave an inch of ground; we all had strong opinions. The fact is, we didn't finish the conversation. So, this week, get ready for Part Two! Join the conversation, as we discuss, "Black Racism/Black Self-Hate: When Will It Stop!" We promise to keep it -- as always -- Real, Relevant, and Raw!!
Self Love Week-Day3- How the Ego tricks you into self hate. Learn how to control your ego. How this mental thing can prevent you from happiness? How can this one thing can rip apart a relationship? Learn to manage this thing called Ego.
There's plenty of things in the world I don't agree with, and this topic is one of them! It also seems like history CAN NOT STOP REPEATING ITSELF when it comes to this issue. I'm going to dabble into this topic because I only have 30 minutes to talk. Depending on how deep this goes, I may end up doing a second segment. You all know how I like to keep things fun and light hearted on the show. I just need to say my peace, drop the mic and walk away!
Is Love or Hate something that we "give" of "get" to/from others..or is it something or an energy that we choose to be at one with or not to be at one with?
Further, the most import question is: Who ultimately benefits when one chooses to Love or to Hate?
Find out this week on the upcoming Pluto-Nalagy Show with Jahwie & Nalagy.
