Can A Black Woman Be Conscious And Still Wear Hair Weave?

Can Conscious Black women wear Hair Weave

Can a Black woman be conscious and still wear Hair Weave? The general consensus is no! However, there are different levels and types of consciousnesses. For some Black women, consciousness is about being true to their Afrakan ancestry and race. For others, being conscious is about their personal self-awareness. It’s about what’s on the inside and not their physical outer appearance.

Most Black women are very self-conscious about their appearance. Self-consciousness is a normal human behavioral trait that doesn’t favor Black women because of society’s ideals of beauty. Therefore, Black women either choose to shun society’s expectations of how they should look or they capitulate and change their appearance knowing full well that its not who they really are.

All Black women who wear hair weave do so for the same basic reasons. They do it to enhance their beauty and make themselves more desirable which ultimately boosts their self-confidence. Some Black women who wear hair weave may possess a high level of consciousness but they view their hair wear as merely tools of the trade. In other words; the trade is society and hair weave is just part of a job-appropriate outfit.

Truly conscious Black women never wear hair weave because they possess a higher level of racial self-awareness than the average socially aware Black woman. They are not hung up on beauty, they don’t seek to be desirable, and they don’t need the approval of others in order to maintain a high level of self-confidence. They wear their hair like a shield either short, in Braids, in Locks, in Afro, or natural to deflect all the BS ways that society may judge them.

Both racially conscious and socially conscious Black women are not immune to the mechanisms in Life. They are attracted to and by beauty however, given their level of consciousness and mind control ability, they are able to redirect their Desires into other things. Black women are often the first ones to rebel against trends in popular culture. It is that rebellion that, over time, acts to build a consensus of conscious thoughts and ideas that transform into social movements to make changes in Black communities and society at large.

Black women can be conscious and still wear hair weave. It all depends on their level of consciousness. Some Black women will choose to continue to use hair weave as a tool to fit into popular culture because it helps their self-confidence. Some Black women will reject all beauty aids that are un-natural due to their high level of consciousness. People will always judge but ultimately, the choice is the Black woman’s alone.

Hidden Figures, The Black Computers Of NASA

 

Did you know that Black women played an integral role in securing America’s dominance of the worldwide Aerospace industry? It’s an achievement that most people didn’t know about but is now coming to light after a book written about the women has been made into a movie and is slated to be released in theaters soon.

During the 2nd world war of the 1940s up into the space race of the 1960s a small group of Black female mathematicians, known as the Black Computers, were employed by NASA to work on top-secret airplane development. The women played an integral role in calculating the advanced mathematical measurements needed to build stronger, lighter, and faster Airplanes and rockets.

It maybe hard for some to imagine but there was a time before the sophisticated machines of today when people were the ones known as Computers. What’s even stranger is the fact that the term “Computer” was reserved for female mathematicians only. Men preferred to be called Engineers.

The 1940s was a very racist and segregated time in America. Most highly educated Black men and women were barred from jobs in the Aerospace industry. In those days American Aircraft technology lagged way behind other countries so facing a shortage of able “Computers” to help design missiles and planes for the war NACA, as it was known at the time, hired the Black women based on their exceptional credentials.

The Black Computers worked in secret and in segregation from even other white Computers. After initial skepticism about their abilities from those who believed that Black people were in all ways inferior, their skills at solving every complex task given to them soon gained them respect and admiration from their white co-workers.

The word is now out on NASA’s Black Computers but if you hadn’t heard about them before, it’s not a coincidence. NASA originally suppressed knowledge of the Black Computer for several reasons that include; embarrassment by whites that Blacks played a role in such a prominent scientific field and the women themselves were sworn to secrecy for security purposes.

The new movie entitled “Hidden Figures” is slated for released in January 2017. It stars Janelle Monae, Taraji P. Henson and Octavia Spencer as three of the key members of the Black Computers. We urge everyone to get out and see it because the Black Computers showed the racists that Black intelligence needed to be respected

Beauty Is A Mechanism

Beauty is a Mechanism

Beauty is a mechanism. It’s a tool that ANKH uses through Desire to encourage its creations to reproduce. Most people fail to understand this so they allow their psyche to be driven by their senses. We have classified this condition as being Desire Dependent. Afrakans must conquor this mechanism, our psychological stability depends on it. 

Desire Dependency is a condition that creates numerous psychological problems in people because the ideals of beauty are Eurocentric. Fortunately, beauty as a mechanism is not an existential problem for ANKH therefore humans are left to manage our psychological problems ourselves.

How is beauty a mechanism?

Beauty is a mechanism because our brain cells react to stimuli from the information that is captured by our senses. Some stimulation trigger the release of Dopamine in our brain to produce a sensation of pleasure. The memories of strong stimulation from such things as music, drugs, sex, and risk are stored in our Desire banks. We use them to satisfy ourselves in times of Want.

All races are susceptible to desire fulfillment based on beauty. Also, one particular physical characteristics that one race may consider attractive may not be considered attractive in another race. That means that beauty is subjective and whatever the characteristics that determine beauty in relation to race and culture are they all provide the same purpose to ANKH.

Beauty as a mechanism can be cross-racial and cross-cultural. As races naturally interact with each other race mixing will occur; sometimes out of curiosity but mostly because of desire manipulation. If left unchecked the physical characteristics that determine one race from another will eventually become indistinguishable. Some people may say that is a good thing for race relations but is it?

In a perfect world race mixing based on desire and beauty wouldn’t be a problem but this is an imperfect world we live in. People are actively engaging in racial prejudice and racial genocide every minute of the day in every country on the face of the Earth. If AfRAkan people are not conscious about preserving our racial identity we will definitely go extinct as a race.

The unconscious among us engage in cultural and racial genocide. They allow their weak minds to be manipulated by popular culture so they seek to breed with the dominant race because they think it will produce “better” offspring able to compete in the dominant race’s unethical culture. They attempt to diminish their Blackness by Bleaching their skin and burning the kink out of their hair with chemicals.

Fortunately there are Conscious AfRAkans who, though they might not recognize the intricate workings of ANKH, value their racial identity. They use mind over matter to rebuke the desire manipulations of popular culture. They value their dark skin, their kinky hair, and their unique physical features.

Recognize that ANKH is a conscious entity that uses beauty as a mechanism. Unconscious Humans have become susceptible to that mechanism and because they control popular culture and the tools to manipulate it, such as money and information, they also have power over your emotions.  

Become a conscious Afrakan by learning to fight the mechanisms of ANKH/Life. Black women and man; we must make a conscious effort to love ourselves. It’s the only way to return our minds to valuing the beauty of our people and it is one of the ways of ultimately preserving the longevity of the Black/Afrakan race.
