Popular Fitness Site LiveStrong.com Has Articles on How to Increase Melanin in White Skin

Avatar • Mar 29, 2016

Melanin has been historically associated with poverty, slavery and a lack of beauty, wealth and class. It’s a mentality that resounds both within and outside of the black community, although a cultural tide is turning as younger blacks celebrate their dark skin with movements like #iwillnotapologizeforbeingdarkskin, #flexinmycomplexion and #unfairandlovely.

But here’s the thing — dark skin is not just a thing of beauty, it’s also incredibly beneficial to health. Melanin preserves elasticity in the skin (hence ‘black don’t crack’), protects from the sun (hence the low rates of skin cancer among black folks) and has been found to slow aging. In fact, a recent study by Olay found that black women age 10 years slower than white women. Melanin indeed is magical. And it seems others are getting hip to this.

The fitness site LiveStrong.com features articles geared at maximizing fitness and improving health, and apparently increasing the amount of melanin in the skin is part of that. (Click the image to be taken to the article.)

Based on their bio pics, all the authors of these articles are either white or white-passing.

Each article focuses on the benefits of melanin to the body, one plainly asserts;

Melanin is important to your skin’s health. This compound is a pigment that protects your skin from the harmful effects of sunlight.”

Melanin is not a curse. It’s a beautiful and healthy blessing, and it’s high time that we begin to perceive it this way.

I’m not saying that black skin is the only beautiful skin, but if white people were black, they would never let us hear the end of it.

How can you increase something you don’t have in your dna?

Lots of white people have melanin. It comes out when they tan. However tanning in their case is a sign of skin damage which most of them don’t see until they are above 30. This one reason why older black women especially those who are darker look at least 10 years younger than a white woman of the same age.

However there melanin levels are not the same hence the skin damage due to over exposure of sun.

You dont have melanin in your skin though thats a lie, you people have a 20% chance of contracting melanomas and dying from them. Not to mention skin cancer is high in European countries and where Europeans are the overall majority.

This is hot topic these days. They have been doing studies on us for some time now and just to today I heard of a melanin pill Europeans can take to slow down the process of going grey.

I am intrigued as to where they get the Melanin from.

The obsession with black people is REAL! White people swear up and down they hate us N words but they are always looking at ways to be like us. Now they want to increase their melanin content after calling us UGLY and saying darker hued people, particularly darker hued black women whom are the REAL aboriginal women are ashy and need to bleach their skin.

Hahahaha! White folks stay pink and keep wishing you were black foods, vitamins, tablets nor that artificial melanin drug you inject will NEVER give you the shade of brown you desire to be.

I’ll just keep this all the way real. I don’t understand how they’re so immersed in their whiteness, but they can’t stand their original skin “color”. They hate us with a passion yet they’ll do anything to get that deep dark tan. They believe that darker skin is healthier looking skin, while implying that their natural “coloring” is too pale or ghastly.

They know our skin colour is healthy they hate us for our skin colour and our melanin levels. They know that skin they call white is a curse from the most high. Yet they are too damn proud to admit it! On the day of judgement every knee, and every tongue shall bow and confess.
