Brown, Big and Tall
Broad shoulders – waist small.
The master used me to fill his slave
Now that I’m free – still all women’s prize.
He had my women; and when
he turned his back,
If only he could see how his women scratched.
I didn’t go after them; they came after me.
I had so many women, I was weak at the knees.
Society says that I should take only one wife.
Used to have two women in the morning light,
And turn around and have two more at night.
The care of women and children
wasn’t my role;
That was the master’s job, until they were sold.
I’d like to settle down and have a
family to hold;
But, why get attached to a women
I can’t control.
Instigating the separation of the Blackman and his wife is the Whiteman’s greatest weapon in the Back nation’s strife.
I must find some way to fight back for my life.
I keep habits that feel good and hard to let go.
Don’t look at me now and sneer up your nose.
If I don’t change and make real effort to grow,
My life will be desolate and filled with sorrow.
If I could just stand up at take charge
like a real man,
Respect and everything I want will just
fall into my hands.
How can we topple Samson?
This has been the Gentile’s age-old problem. In the Biblical story he seems invincible at first—before Delilah got to him. The story is an allegory for the African American man in this society today. Today, the Black man is Samson. “They”—the dominant majority in our society—found a way hundreds of years ago to harness Samson’s power. In the case of the African American man, to control his virility.
The African American man’s “Achilles Heel” is his enormous sexual appetite, which is residue from his conditioning during slavery, which he recognizes and has used from the end of slavery until now. All you need to bring a brother to his knees is to send in a Delilah (who is usually White, or a light-skinned Black woman who looks and acts as if she’s White) and he falls like clock work every time.
These “Delilah’s” learn our men’s secrets, which they turn against him—like a martial artist uses his opponent’s aggression against him to defeat him. Mainstream society did something similar to our Black men, using their captured powerhouse’s (Black male slave’s) testosterone in a reverse move to defeat him.
Rest assured there is no sympathy from African American women when he succumbs to Delilah’s wiles.
You see how they harness his power to make vast amounts of money in their world of sport and play. This man’s genius and intellect was and is restricted from pursing more serious matters of this world to be used for their entertainment. The Black man’s physical and mythical sexual “gifts” are looked upon by the majority society with equal parts envy and fear.
While other nationalities’ children spend their energy developing their intellect, our children—especially our Black boys—spend hours honing their skills in sports, especially basketball and football.
Unfortunately, the African American woman has historically borne the brunt of the African American man’s misdirected virility; allowing American society to reshape her feelings about our men to the point our women don’t respect or follow them.
Not only has she been conditioned not to follow the African American man, society has given her superficial power. The White supremacist power structure has “allowed” her to run things in our community as the strong Black woman; running her house with an iron fist.
Or, she’s allowed to be the image of White male fantasy: The show it all, strut that stuff queen of the street sex toy or the on-call, so-called dignified “piece” of—aheem—if you catch my drift.
Given her place in mainstream society—real or fantasy—it would be very difficult for the African American woman to give up the driver’s wheel and take a back seat to a male who won’t, can’t or is unable to stand-up as a man. This is the problem and the key to this problem is held in the genetics of the African American, “Black” man.
Science has decoded the DNA in the relationship to the biological nature of living things or living tissue. Each DNA code has a place, an address so to speak, as to where it resides in the DNA universe.
Scientists admit there are vast amounts of DNA they cannot categorize or decode because it does not relate to any known factors. They call it “Junk DNA.” Scientists have now discovered how to target certain genes at their residence with chemicals using genetic address codes and these chemicals can cause interference and many kinds of problems in natural development.
While in school, I wrote a term paper on junk DNA for a genetics class. I found, during my research, that this area of genetics had been overlooked by the scientific world. My paper caused quite a buzz and lead to an internship at UIC. Of course, it was elementary my dear scientist – elementary. The fact that junk DNA was a library containing the record of man’s development was at the base of my hypothesis.
This former development is no longer active but relevant as a historical factor. Darwin had the right idea but was wrong as two left shoes. Everything evolves that we see in our creation and in the in universe. But, man was never a monkey or an ape – WAIT; I mean he did not evolve out of an ape to be a man. Whew! I almost made a big mistake.
Yes, man evolved and he is still evolving; just like a oak tree seed will go through many stages before it actually stands majestically and firmly rooted on land. When you cut into it, it reveals a record of its existence. And so it is with man, though his record is much more complex.
In my research, I found that man’s record went back further than the woman’s record. Her existence surfaced when the Mitochondria showed up in the cells. The cell is a unit, which has members with assigned duties for it to function. These Mitochondria are a manager of the work in the cell. Many times the cell has two, three and sometimes four of them managing it. These cells have heavy workloads because they are located in vitally important areas of the body and require more.
My theory was this; since man existed long before the occurrence of the woman, the advent of woman was a mutation. He mutated in order to ensure his longevity. In the theory, I introduced the idea that man was A-sexual. He reproduced on his own. That is why he still carries both the male and female reproductive genes.
The woman is a mutation copy of the original, man. The mutation is never as potent as the original. She is a little smaller, her bone mass is thinner including her skull, her skin is more delicate and she carries the workload of the united family, just like the Mitochondria. And again, her appearance on the scene happens to coincide with the appearance of the Mitochondria in the cell.
Thousands, millions – however old man really is—years later, man, like all life, has evolved out of water. His sperm still swims in a watery fluid up the canal to the earth-egg and when it becomes engaged, there is an explosion. All the entities produced in that explosion start to dance with a pulsating beat and with that beat they start to move into position, forming an electrically charged line that will become the control center (i.e., brain and nervous system). I will get back to this point later.
This sperm looks a lot like a tadpole in water. A tadpole is in the reptile family and some reptiles are A-sexual. We have witnessed the reoccurrence of these intersexes, A-sexual man, sometime referred to as hermaphrodite, when a child is born with both sexes.
The question arises : “Why did man mutate?” Didn’t God Almighty create the heavens and Earth as one unit, then they were separated and so it was with man. We can speculate for ages as to the implication of the separation so I will offer this one conjecture.
Perhaps when he was with “child” he was in too vulnerable a state and would be easily killed. His whole line could be wiped out. After all, he/we are part of the animal kingdom. He needed to secure his seed and the longevity of his line so he didn’t put all his eggs in one basket. Even with that, there is something different about man’s intellect – his ability to imagine and bring into existence. Also, he needed a mate to help him – not one exactly like him. What he needed was someone who was the same – but different. The Bible says he was lonely.
When he mutated, he gave over the greater part of himself—the heart or inner control center—to the woman, and kept the command center (communication gene control) for himself. The male carries or controls the communication gene in the genetic breakdown.
The communication gene is in the protein; and the protein directs the function of cells. A hermaphrodite is just a recurrence of man’s former self. Some people’s confusion over their sexual orientation, more than likely, comes out of that retired genetic library’s misfile of the old or it could be environmental as a result of the chemicals introduced into our food and water supply.
In short, homosexuality could come from what looks like a man, but this man has too much estrogen. Or one could have the sexual body parts of a woman and the mental orientation of a man, or visa-versa. The original, XY mutates into two XXes. When there is an order for a reproduction of the XY sequence, on command, the control center orders that one leg of one X be cut and thus, you have the XY.
Now, back to the woman and man’s problem. What man, in his splendor, gave over to the woman was the best—and most vulnerable—part of him. He gave over the heart, the seat of the soul and the doorway connection to the Creator.
The first thing that happens when the egg and sperm meet is an explosion that burst into a erythematic pulse of the heart beat, just an instance before you see the formation of the control center.
Which came first, the chicken prototype or the egg? The control center, which the male’s DNA controls, orders the direction of the activity; but the heart strikes out first, after the orders have been given, with the pulse, rhythm, in other words, vibration of the body’s existence.
So can the heart exist with out the head; can the head exist without the heart?
Too often the woman, without adequate protection, is shaped by the influence of the controlling society and becomes the Delilah that betrays the man that she loves by symbolically cutting off his locks of hair. The significance of the locky, wool-like hair is the link to the melanin in the skin and is a reference to his genetics.
That is our legacy. The original is always stronger and more viral than the mutation. The locks are a symbol of that strength. Why do you think this society calls them “dreaded locks”? Why do you think they (the dominate society) went through so much trouble to make us hate our hair?
We wear their hair as if it were a crown, when it is a symbol of our shame and sickness. The Black woman’s fall off of the pedestal, on which we were elevated away from the savagery of this world, is represented, in part, by the straightening of our hair. It is a sign that we, African women have lost our true identity and the important position we hold to balance our men’s leadership. The job is monumental and there is no way we could do it except by way of our compassion.
Which is on top and which one is in the center. When the man submits himself in obeisance to his Creator, bowing down and placing his head on the floor, his heart rises and is stationed over the head. This woman today fines it hard (almost impossible) to give over the so-called power she has acquired and allow the undeveloped man to rule her.
In fact, it is the woman’s closeness to the Creator that won’t permit her to give over her power to a man who can’t/won’t stand-up. If the man can’t make it, and we know that all won’t make it, she will need to look toward her children; and in that respect, all won’t be lost. Now we are at the end of this age (eon), and a new page is about to be written in the development of the human being. There is no road map and the people are wary.
We have to let go of the old as we learn from it. We must do what is necessary to ensure the survival of our genetic line and the whole human race. It is imperative African American women be wise enough not to be tricked into becoming a Delilah and understand our contribution to the fall of the African American “Samson,” and consider his genetic mutation, was strategic enough to give over the best part of himself to us, the womb of man.
In order for the Black women to save themselves and their family, they must have the compassion to step-in and intercede on behalf of their men. Because of this intercession, the men will evolve into a new man and gain control over his situation, secure and protect his life and save his soul by way of us, his heart. If we do not concede, we will become extinct and be filed back with the so-called junk DNA as a story that was told — once upon a time.
