What are the two types of Melanin?

What are the two types of Melanin? 
Eumelanin & Pheomelanin.  

Neuromelanin is also a basic type of Melanin in the Neuron system.

Eumelanin is produced mainly in a abundance of black and brown pigment, when present. Eumelanin is considered the absorber of light. Pheomelanin pigment is more reddish yellow in hue. These natural existence are ubiquitous & anything that is a natural entity & has these colors exhibits Melanin,
Eumelanin & Pheomelanin.

Black People Tan?

The Sun and your skin. Get to know it. The two are one in the same.
 Protect your skin from the sun by not putting anything on it. If you have Melanin, you don't  need any form of "Sun screen" because your skin is naturally equipped with this. When your skin has enough sun, the body natural clock will convert the heat transmitting.

Black people get a instant tan when in the presents of the Sun, this is why, usually, when people have Melanin, a protective pigment, they don't burn after long or short periods in the sun.

What makes Black or other Melanic People resistant to the Sun?

The Creative Soul

What type of Creative are you?

Almost always the creative "Minority" changes the world for better, said DR MLK. The creativity that rest in our spirit reflect in our sounds that we make. Similar to how birds & other species may not sing as humans do but they surely, create sound. You hear it too, don''t you? (Close your eyes & concentrate right now on the outside, especially, if the SUN is out, you can hear the birds soundly communicating).    

This music of life, as I like to call it. Think about it. The Creator created these colorful creative species that make earthly melody! Sounds for us to listen to, enjoy, sounds that alert us, draws attention, even the noise of a rooster, a natural earth alarm, we can depend on!

Even water falls make some sort of sound vibration. This is why therapist recommend water as a natural therapy to help boost the physical & mental.

Our brain responds to music in so much ways, productive & constructive. makes us feel good, can make us feel bad. Soul Music, R&B, Jazz, Reggae, Acoustics, Rap music studies show IS FEEL GOOD MUSIC & usually the listener is creative w/ high self esteem. Now, that's  #goodmusic isn't it?

Music & The BRAIN

This I thought was really interesting. The functioning of the brain, sound, movement, the visual even behind the cortex (the outer layer of our brain composed of a matter that plays a divine role in consciousness).

The Brain or cerebrum, which is located in the front of the skull consisting of two hemispheres, the left & the right, is responsible for the integration of the complex sensory & the coordination of the body voluntary activities & movement.

For example, there are areas in the brain computational centres that all play a part in the music/sound/rhythm intake.

When we first listen to sound, the first stage is the Auditory Cortex, which rest right smack in the middle of the brain, along with a host of other functions needed to gravitate to what music creates for you. This first stage listens to the notes of the sound you are listening to and analysis the perception of it.

Then our sensory cortex, physically gives feedback to the brain "sensing" how we react & our reaction to what we are listening to & or the instruments we play.

Movement such as dancing including tap dancing or any foot action, playing a instrument & the emotional involvement in this cerebellum location resides somewhere closer to the ear & closer to the behind of the head.

Our Amygdala (our emotional reaction to music) is located directly across from the ear but more centered on top. This is responsible for the emotions that are created when we listen to certain types of music.

The visual cortex, is what creates responses to when reading a book or to the sensation when we are visually watching someone dance in movement & with rhythm or our very own. This is located at the very back of our head.

Our Hippocampus, is the memory drive in our brain that memorizes music, lyrics, melody & our musical experience. This is also composed in the center of the brain.

There are other scientific terms to describe the other assets of the brain but these are just a few for you to see how AMAZIN the Creators work is!

Written all over your face

Heard of this expression before? When someone listens to music that makes you feel good, you can see it on their face. Your face, usually, looks at peace or a slight smile expression or you visibly singing along or moving your head in a non aggressive or combative movement.

This is the brain at work, responding to how the music we are listening to affects us.

It is shown that depending on the type of music we are listening to, this can affect how we see others neutral faces. If we are listening to nice soothing, rhythmic music, we will see neutral faces as happy.

If we are listening to sad or destructive music, we will usually read neutral face as the same.

This is our emotions that are affected by the music intake. Our perceived emotions & our emotions that are felt... meaning some can listen to sad music & not get depressed because they are perceiving the music, rather than feeling it. Even so, if you are depressed, you should be listening to music that is considered a "feel good" music or instrumental music that can uplift you.

So, what instruments drive you? What kind of music do you create?

A Legal Central American on Illegal Immigration

Amerika has a ugly, delusion on who are the illegals, who are "aliens" and the civil war in El Salvador, that as a result brought over countless of Salvadorian Indians to find refuge in the North Americas.

When "Americans Founding Fathers, pilgrims and pirates" came to this side of the pacific ocean in search of gold in the seven cities and throughout the whole damn continent including Mexico, which is now California, Arizona, Texas, Utah, etc; we, Native Brown Melanin dominating Indigenous peoples, failed at providing the same treatment as our people, those who blood is in this soil now colonized by English speakers, experience then and still yet, being treated today.

They say they won the war fair. They had weapons that killed people, their stocks and even today, flying birds just for hobbies while we live in a wealthy country that has massive of homeless mothers and children, empty buildings and not too mention, homeless disabled Vets that risked body parts for this great Saint or Satan.

Won a war fair. Although, we were nomadically, naked delighted to intake the sun energy while we went and hunted and gathered our own food peacefully. Won a war fair, although the weapons these english and spanish colonist had to our rocks and tree made knives couldn't compare.

Won a war fair, although, we signed our land that was ceased by non natives forcefully and had unknowingly sold acres to these new settlers for 1 pesos or for $16 dollars because the documents were in English a language FOREIGN to the Indigenous peoples of  America we now call a mere Mexican.

The smallest country in Central America - so they say - El Salvador, during the civil war, which was aided by the US & The UN, took the lives of 75,000+ Salvadorians either by guns, disappearance or relocation/refuge.

The Socioeconomic inequality burden that Americans in Central America face . I always wonder, why are they called "Central Americans" if they don't have the same rights as Americans in the North? Reminds me of slaves and black people in the south trying to freed to the North. What's the difference isn't this the same shit?

As a "Legal" Central American here, and I use the term LEGAL loosely, because this term only apply to the politricks behind this demonical game of the dirtiest muthafukas that we pay respect to because of how they dress, cars they drive even tho they are as soulless as the ones who came to take over land that provided every earthly source imaginable.

But as someone who is a resident here, I no longer watch TV because of the poision it instills in everday struggling Americans who are easily influenced that brown people are illegal or aliens even tho, we all know non brown people came here to discover those same looking brown people they calling immigrants.

Just becos we cross over on feet, utilize the Creators dirt floors rather than coming over on ships in the sea, don't make us a criminal. AMERIKA is OUR HOME to us BROWN INDIGENOUS NOMADIC PEOPLES.

#CNN want to have all white Politicans and maybe one black lady and a democrat (to make us feel all a little better, minorities are present) don't mean shit and they want to talk about #Immigrationcrisis as if their forefathers didn't immigrate from across oceans to take Earth wealth that we already amongst ourselves shared.

As a Central/South/North Nomadic decendent, it is disgusting to see all the benefits these New Citizens, New Mexico, New California residents have reap.

To those whites now who say "we didn't own slaves, we weren't here in those days" and to have the recessiveness to even to say,"get over it", only shows the inherited bigotry that their forefathers, news stations, media and everything else "majority" driven.

Everyone knows, the past is the present and this is a reflection everyday when you turn on your television and they want to call my people illegal or aliens, just no respect for humanity and for the melanin they take from us to turn into synthesis melatonin to help them sleep better from their ill conscious behavior.

They say the border isn't secure. I been hearing this same gimmick since I was a teenager. 10 presidents before Obama was talking about the borders and with the minutemen taking it upon themselves to protect the border, you still mean to tell me it's not secure enough?

What's not secure is the killers in the US by rich, depressive, uncool teens and policeman taking out their madness on US Citizens and students.

As a brown female, watching the hatred dispel is my only American Dream at this point becos were my people belong is fukn everywhere, we were Nomadic then and that will never change.

MAY THE EARTH SUN & NATURE PROTECT US becos how many of our people belong to the NRA, National Rifle Association?
