What is wrong with our black people? Have we forgotten where we came from? Have black people forgotten that black doesn’t crack? My children told me that the kids at school say that dark skinned people are ugly and I couldn’t believe my ears! What are we teaching our young black people? The civil rights leaders marched, fought, got spit on, were beaten and killed because of the color of their skin and now in 2014 black people are embarrassed of their skin color and black men are embarrassed to have a dark skinned women on their arm. Why is it that black men can date black women all through high school and in college, but as soon as they make it to the pros, or get a successful career they have to marry white or light almost white woman? Then they give her money to start a business, when there is a lack of successful African-American businesses in our communities. The situation that just happened with the picture of Lupita Nyong’o on Vanity Fair cover is a prime example of how society says light skin is more beautiful. Did Lupita think that this picture made her look a different way in a good way or is it just acceptable in the eyes of black people? I know she had to notice how light they made her look, so why didn’t she speak up? Black men can say whatever they want to say trying to defend the fact that they aren’t embarrassed to be with a dark skinned woman, well some black men anyway, but their actions say something different. I could just strangle a black man who says that he doesn’t date black women when his mother is black, his grandmother is black, his great-grandmother is black, and his great-great-grandmother was probably a slave. Black women were raped and beaten because of the color of their skin and it is a disgrace for some black men to look at beautiful black women as though they are gum under their shoe. It’s ok though because what they don’t realize is that black women age gracefully and when we are 20 we look 15, and when we are 30 we look 20, and when we are 40 we look 30, and when are 50 we look 40 and sometimes 35! So please believe that white skin will crack way faster than that black! Black people are the worse race to each other, black people turn on each other, black people don’t support each other, and black people don’t love each other. When will it stop? I’m not against inter-racial couples, I’m just against black people who are racist against black people. Floyd Mayweather can preach about how black he is and how he loves black women but he was quick to grab a woman who is just as white as Chelsea Clinton! Everyone knows that she wouldn’t give him the time of day if he worked at Burger King. Then there is Ice-T who married snow white turned big booty vixen when he used to be this hard core black rapper who so called spoke up for black people. The list goes on and on and it’s too many to name. All I’m saying is love and own your blackness! One thing for sure black women are strong, smart, beautiful, and hard workers and we are ride or die for our men and we don’t mind rocking with him through his struggles until he gets on his feet. I now understand why true Africans don’t consider us African and they don’t want us called African-Americans because we aren’t African we are just brown people! If this offends you then this is for you! The truth always hurts….

Do You Know Where Your Extensions Come From?
Nairobi, Kenya: Irene Myangoh, a personal assistant working at a law firm in Nairobi went to an upmarket hair salon along Kenyatta Avenue, and spent more than N5,500 on a human hair weave.Two weeks later she started suffering from severe headache that would not go away. She would wake up with severe headache at night.She went to a private doctor who gave her drugs for the relief of mild to moderate pain of inflammatory origin with or without fever; they would only work for a few hours and then the headache would be back worse than even before.Desperate, she went to see a specialist who did blood tests and even a brain scan. All the tests were negative but the headache persisted, making her unable to concentrate at work and sleeping very poorly.She went back to her doctor who decided to examine her scalp and under the beautiful weave he found worms!The worms were burrowing into her skull and after sending the samples to the lab they found that the hair had eggs from which the worms had hatched.The doctor told her that the hair was probably from a corpse because those worms are usually found on dead bodies. Efforts to reach her doctor for further comments were fruitless for he was said to be out of the country.The manager of the salon where Irene got the hair product was traumatised and said they had fitted ten weaves from the package already, adding that the particular batch of hair had sold very fast; in less than a month, she had sold over 150 pieces.“I am shocked to hear this because this is the first time such a thing is happening to my clients. I will get more information from my supplier because we import these weaves from the UK, USA and India,” says the salon manager who did not want to be mentioned.She continued to say: “Maybe, the supplier sent us rejects from the factory or weaves that had overstayed in the stores but I promise to follow up on the matter and compensate Irene.”Irene had to shave after this ordeal and took antibiotics for two weeks.Dr CK Musau, a surgeon at Nairobi hospital says that he has dealt with more than ten cases of the same in a period of six months.He further urges ladies to be very careful with what they put on their heads, and adds that it is better to appreciate natural beauty and be content with what God has blessed them instead of chasing artificial beauty.“It is unfortunate how the West has influenced Kenyan youth; especially ladies. They should stick to their natural African beauty as opposed to trying to ape what they see,” says Musau.Dr Musau reiterated that the youth must keep in mind that of late, Kenyans can sell anything: from body parts to human beings to used coffins and now even weaves that seem to come from corpses.Elsewhere, 16-year-old girl from Buruburu, a Nairobi surburb, also suffered the same fate but unfortunately for her she died. Cobweb eggs were found in her hair after she died.There was a profound cobweb design in her weaved hair. She dropped dead after constant headaches.The root cause? The weave had unnoticed spider eggs. The warmth produced after weaving provided a very conducive environment for the eggs to hatch.A spider grew in her scalp and bit her. The poison found its way to her blood. She could not survive the attack.
