Published on 09 Sep 2021 / In Science & Technology

Black women often refer to their melanated skin as magic but many don't know the benefits that their melanin possesses. I learned so much researching this topic and I know you will too after watching. All Black people have an abundance of melanin. Male & female. Love the skin you're in!

*Please note Dr. Merat was referring to melanated chaga powder when he spoke of melanin repairing broken DNA. You can watch the full video here: https://youtu.be/ZhazAnN9cKs

BTW, some people are going to try to interpret this video as a way of saying Black people are better than other races lol No, that's not what this means. Everyone has melanin. Some people have more than others. Every "race" has genetic advantages that helps them adapt in certain climates.

Only the Blacks are stupid enough to publish this as science.

There is no hope for them.

Bullshit. The problem isn't your color, it's what you lack between your ears.

This is so true. Long ago I had a black neighbour who was such a decent man. Everyone loved him. He was a kind soul, always ready to help in any way he could. He was respected by Everyone. Then a black family moved to that street. They were anything but civilised, and people reacted negatively. Their first and only defense... You are racist because we're black. That all fell down the drain when people started pointing at the other neighbour who Everyone loved despite being also black. They eventually moved to a "better" place. People need to look at themselves before claiming victimhood.

@The Man Inside: "They eventually moved..." I find that interesting that *they* moved. Usually they cry discrimination, racism and any other of the usual oppression olympics to get others to bow to them.

@sardonicsmile: True, in this case they probably realised their claims wouldn't take them anywhere as not even the one who looked like them was supportive to their cause. :-D

They showed some beautiful black women at the end of the video. But even those women had on plenty of make up. Females, no matter what the color, seems are never satisfied. Interesting video though. Makes you wonder why they haven't given a synthesized form to help repair some of the internal damages people have.
