After watching this video, it brought back very painful memories for me, growing up dark in the south!  My first memory of the difference of color is when I was 5 years old and because of my late birthday, I was not in school yet and my paternal grandmother used to keep me while my parents was at work.  At that time, my great-grandmother was in a nursing home and the days we would go and see her; my mother would dress me up….why I had no idea.  So on this particular day we were going to see my great-grandmother in the nursing home, I had on a pink lace dress, white tights and patent leather black shiny shoes; my mommy put my hair in 6 ponytails and dropped me off to my grandmother’s house; before leaving, my grandmother had to retwist my ponytail for some reason; and she told me “you too dark to have such pretty hair” at 5 I really didn’t know how to process this……I looked at my skin and looked at hers (she was darker than I was) and shrugged it off; BUT that statement did something to me that day….it took the blinders of color off! Before she said that to me, I ONLY knew of black people and white people…..I did NOT see the different shades of black….I went home that day I saw my mommy was a different complexion than I and I asked her why?  She told me I was beautiful no matter what complexion I was…this reassured me, but still…..the blinders were off and insecurities set in…I KNEW it was negative at 5 years old!  I don’t blame my grandmother for what she did….she was born and raised in a Jim Crow South and I could not imagine the life she lived backed then! I love her and had the most respect for her; may she continue to rest in peace!

One thing in the Willie Lynch Letter:”Making of a Slave”

You must use the dark skinned slaves vs the light skinned slaves, and the light skinned slaves vs. the dark skinned slaves. You must use the female vs. the male, and the male vs. the female. You must also have your servants and overseers distrust all Blacks, but it is necessary that your slaves trust and depend on us. They must love, respect, and trust only us.

Me and my Gramama on her 80th birthday.....2004

By the time, I was a freshman in high school I was 6 feet tall, skinny, and BLACK!  None of the boys liked me like “that”, because one I was taller than most and two I was dark…  I was cool Pam, funny Pam, my girl Pam!  I would get weird complement/insults like “you are so pretty to be so dark” ; “you’re that smooth pretty black” and “you are a pretty dark girl”  WHAT???  My mommy would tell me that I was just pretty……so this stuff was confusing to me!

Going to Europe at 19 was the BEST thing in the WORLD for me and my blackself!!  In Europe, they see you as BLACK PERIOD, there is no light skin dark skin mess! That is the direct result of slavery and what and the Willie Lynch syndrome did to us and what some of us pass on to our children unbeknownst to them!!!  I was told I was beautiful by all races and nationalities……in Paris I was beautiful, in Spain I was beautiful, in Germany I was BEAUTIFUL!!!  ONLY Black Americans, in Europe told me I was “pretty to be so dark”!!   When 3 black women of different complexion walks into a room; other races will see 3 black women;  most black people will see the difference in our complexions! I fell in love with myself and my beautiful black skin in Europe….the blinders were put back on for me!  I see Black People as one again….not as different shades of black, but just BLACK! Because that is how the WORLD sees us and this how we have to start seeing ourselves!  I TRULY love the beautiful black skin that I am in!

PS – if you are not of a darker complexion….you would not truly understand.

Top 10 Things You Can Do to Maintain/Lose Weight

  • Take a walk. America is in the midst of an obesity epidemic, which is slated to only get worse over the next decade. An extra 20 minutes of physical activity a day, or an additional 2,000 steps, is all we need to avoid weight gain, according to Dr. James Hill, obesity researcher and co-founder of America on the Move. How do you know how many steps you’re taking? Clip a pedometer to your belt and get moving! Everything from walking the dog to grocery shopping counts.
  • Eat an apple. Apples contain 15 percent of the recommended daily allowance for vitamin C. In addition to contributing to overall health, fruits rich in vitamin C, an antioxidant, have recently been linked to a decreased risk of coronary heart disease and cancer. Fit two to three servings (or more) of fruit into your daily diet.
  • Say no to trans fat. Like saturated fats, trans fats raise total cholesterol and LDL, the “bad” cholesterol levels. Trans fats also lower levels of beneficial HDL cholesterol in the body. Additionally, consumption of trans fats may inhibit the absorption of healthy fats that are necessary for the growth and functioning of vital organs.
  • Go easy on the booze. This means an average of one to two drinks per day for men and one drink per day for women. (A drink equals 12 ounces of beer, 4 ounces of wine, 1.5 ounces of 80-proof spirits or 1 ounce of 100-proof spirits.) Drinking more than moderately can increase the risk of such dangers as alcoholism, high blood pressure, obesity, stroke, breast cancer, suicide and accidents.
  • Get a doggie bag. Portion sizes in restaurants and fast-food chains have exploded in recent years, and many of us just can’t help but clear our plates. Ask for a to-go container when you order. That way you can pack up half your entrée to enjoy the next day.
  • Have a yogurt. It’s no secret that calcium helps keep bones strong, but there’s more reason than ever to eat yogurt for bone health. Some yogurt brands now contain inulin, a naturally occurring, fiber-like carbohydrate that’s found in fruits and vegetables. Inulin has been found to increase the activity of live cultures and prevent the growth of harmful bacteria in the digestive tract. Best of all, it aids in the absorption of calcium.
  • Take your vitamins. A study in the Journal of Nutrition showed that taking a daily multivitamin reduced the risk of a first heart attack in both men and women. Authors of the study think this effect is due to the B vitamins found in multivitamins, as well as the antioxidant vitamins, C and E, selenium and beta carotene. Vitamin supplements are no substitute for the nutrients you get from food, but they’re a good way to cover your bases.
  • Hold the salt shaker. Excess sodium intake can lead to high blood pressure (hypertension). More than 50 million Americans — or one in four — have high blood pressure and a third of them don’t know it. High blood pressure contributes to the risk of heart and kidney disease and stroke. Use fresh herbs to boost the flavor of the foods you cook — you’ll get lots of delicious flavor, without the sodium.
  • Switch to whole grains. Whole grains are richer in nutrients and fiber than refined grains. Whole grains help keep you regular, too. Reach for whole-wheat bread over white and brown rice over white. Popcorn and oatmeal are whole grains, too.
  • Hit the water cooler. Water is important for all metabolic processes in the body. It also helps with digestion and weight loss and improves the appearance of your skin. Drinking eight to 10 8-ounce glasses of water each day is key, but eating foods with a high-water content (like fruits and vegetables) also will contribute to your water intake.

Have a great day!!!

7 Ways You Can Donate!

The death toll from the catastrophic tornadoes in the South has climbed to more than 340, with thousands injured, homeless, without power or clean water. How can we harness the power of social media to help?

One of the best things you can do is use Twitter and Facebook to spread the word about places to donate and how to help. Here’s a list of ways to help get you started:

The Red Cross has two shelters set up in Tuscaloosa, temporary homes to 240 people so far. The relief organization provided meals for more than 600 people on Friday and is requesting more financial support. Donate to the Red Cross online RedCross.org, text REDCROSS to 90999 to donate $10, or call 1-800-REDCROSS (1-800-733-2767) to give money or schedule a blood donation.

The Salvation Army has spread out all over the South, helping with sustenance for tornado survivors in Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi and Tennessee. Donate on the Salvation Army’s website at salvationarmyusa.org. Text “GIVE” to 80888 to make a $10 donation, or you can call 1-800-SAL-ARMY (1-800-725-2769) and designate “April 2011 Tornado Outbreak”.

Save the Children is providing food, doctors and education for kids, and the organization is accepting donations at the Save the Children website. The organization will also accept donations by phone at 800 728-3843 during business hours.

World Vision, a Christian humanitarian group, focuses on children, aiming to lessen the emotional shock from the devastating tornado outbreak. Find out more or donate at the World Vision website, or call 1-866-56-CHILD (24453).

Catholic Charities are accepting donations for tornado victims at the Catholic Charities website, or you can donate by calling 1-800-919-9338.

Governor’s Emergency Relief Fund is accepting donations on its website, requesting donations by credit card or check.

Post found items to Facebook: Patty Buillon started a Facebook page containing found pictures and items that were blown by the tornadoes. She started that page after finding pictures and documents in her neighborhood that were blown all the way from Smithville, Mississippi, a town located 100 miles to the Southwest of her home. If you live near the disaster area and find photos, mementos or other items, scan them or take photos of them and post them to the Facebook page she created specifically for this purpose, entitled “Pictures and Documents Found after the April 27, 2011 Tornadoes“. There are now more than 600 photos and items on the page, with 40 of them already identified.

Please, pick your favorite charity, let us know in the comments of other organizations that are helping the South’s tornado survivors, and post on Facebook and tweet the information of your choice far and wide. This is the second-worst storm in recorded history, and people are suffering right now. We need to help them.

Promoting Hair Growth & Healthy Lifestyle

  • Having a healthy diet is a key factor to stopping hair loss and promoting hair growth. Depending on your schedule it may be tough to adhere to some of these standards, but most are easily followed once you make a conscious decision to stick to the plan. Some key dietary points to note:
  • Eat a solid amount of fresh fruits and vegetables everyday. Leafy greens (e.g. lettuce) and sweet juicy fruits (e.g. melons) are especially good, and fruits that are ripe are easier to digest.
  • Evergreen WheatGrass is a perfect source for your leafy green vegetables in 2 hots a day!! http://www.evergreenjuices.com/
  • Be sure to consume an adequate amount of protein everyday. Protein is required for all cells in the body to grow, including hair cells. Lean proteins and low-fat milk or yogurt are best, as they are easier to digest. Animal proteins (i.e. dairy, meat, seafood) are especially beneficial because they are complete proteins, in that they contain the eight essential amino acids that the body cannot produce on its own, but are required for protein synthesis and muscle growth. Proteins are also a good source of B-vitamins and zinc.
  • Eat several servings of whole grains everyday. They are easy to digest and also contain biotin, silica and iron, which are essential to maintaining healthy hair. Brown rice and lentils are great options, and are also easy to incorporate into one’s diet.
  • Try to incorporate seeds and nuts into your diet. They can be eaten as a snack or with a meal. Seeds and nuts (e.g. walnuts, almonds, pumpkin seeds) provide essential fatty acids which are vital for promoting hair growth.
  • Include spices in your meals. Spices help the body to absorb the nutrients from the foods that you eat. These nutrients are essential for promoting hair growth. Some everyday options include parsley, oregano and black pepper.
  • Cut down on processed foods. These foods usually do not contain much in the way of nutritional value, and they also contain additives, which help give it a long shelf-life but can have a negative impact on the body.
  • Have a multi-vitamin and a time-release Vitamin C tablet everyday. A daily multi-vitamin is important because even with a great diet, it is hard for the body to receive all the vitamins and minerals that it needs in order to promote hair growth. Vitamin C helps the body to repair the small muscle tears that occur when you exercise (which is also a key part of my program). If the body has to worry about repairing muscle tears, it cannot concentrate on growing hair.
  • Stay hydrated. Be sure to drink enough water to keep the body replenished, but sipping water every fifteen minutes is unnecessary. Eight to ten glasses of water a day is a good target to keep the body hydrated. Please keep in mind that fruits and vegetables are largely composed of water, and can also be used to reach the recommended hydration level.

 

  • Exercise is just as important as a healthy diet when it comes to growing your hair back. Exercise helps to reduce stress, which often contributes to hair loss. Increased stress levels constrict the blood vessels which supply blood to the scalp. If the blood flow in the scalp area is insufficient, the scalp cannot receive the nutrients that it needs in order to promote hair growth. Some important points to remember:
  • Don’t stress out. Constantly thinking about losing your hair is stressful and will only cause you to lose more hair. Instead, focus on what you can do to stop the hair loss and direct your energy towards improving your lifestyle.
  • Create a tri-weekly weightlifting routine. There are a couple of essential exercises which should be incorporated into your routine. Crunches help to make the body’s core strong and will help you to perform all other exercises with proper form. Squats work some of the body’s largest muscle groups and help to release a large amount of growth hormone, which helps all the muscles that you exercise to grow. Lifting weights also releases endorphins, which help to put you in a positive state of mind. The endorphins are very helpful when trying to deal with something that seems impossible to change, such as hair loss.
  • Practice yoga twice a week. Yoga classes are offered at most health clubs and there are also a number of very good DVDs in circulation. A comprehensive yoga session will take you through a variety of poses that workout the entire body. Yoga helps to put you in a more relaxed state of mind, and also makes the body’s muscles more flexible.
  • Try to do some form of aerobic exercise twice a week (e.g. running, treadmill). Aerobic exercises also help the body to release endorphins.
  • Always breathe deeply. Deep breathing purifies the blood and helps it to carry nutrients and oxygen to the cells of the scalp, which in turn help to promote hair growth. Breathing deeply is also a great stress reliever.
  • Get an adequate amount of sleep. As someone who often works eighty hour weeks, I know that getting six to eight hours of sleep per night can be almost impossible. If you don’t have enough time to get that much sleep everyday, ensure that whatever sleep you do get is in a comfortable environment. Sleep is a great stress reliever and also helps to clear the mind.

Newly Natural

Meet the Lovely Shavon Jones

Month 7- Chunky Twistout

How long have you been thinking about going natural?
-Before I started my transition, I tried to go natural the summer before my transition but it didnt work out because I wasn’t serious enough about it. I just wanted something different and less damaging to my hair. After I started researching natural hair care, watched Youtube videos, and went to websites like Curlynikki then I seriously considered going natural!

When did you BC and after how long of a transition?
-I BC’d August 7, 2010 after transitioning for 2 months during the summer.

How did you feel after all the relaxed hair was cut off??
-I felt free!! I went to my long time hairstylist to get my BC and then I went home and cut some more off because I still saw alot of relaxed ends. The fact that I completed my BC myself gave me strength and confidence in my new look!

What was your family’s reaction?
-My family was in shock I think, they didn’t really say much about it. My mom did tell me “not to leave my hair standing on top of my head”, lol whatever that means. My fiance loved it, he supports me in anything that I do so I wasn’t surprised about his reaction.

Who, if any was your inspiration?
-I don’t think I had a specific person who inspired me to go natural… but after watching YouTube videos of various women doing their BCs, transitioning, styling their natural hair, and sharing their natural hair experiences, that was enough inspiration for me to start my journey!

What products do you use?
-My hair loves water, when my hair was relaxed I used to RUN from water, now I just let my tresses soak up that moisture! I really like Giovanni Smooth as Silk conditioner and VO5 Tea Tree Conditioner. My new fave is Koils By Nature Leave In Conditioner and Nourishing Body & Hair Butter in Mango. I’ve used Cantu Shea Butter Leave In Conditioning Cream ever since my BC but Im trying out new things. I also love my spray bottle mix of water, tea tree oil, olive oil, rosemary oil, and peppermint oil- so refreshing in the morning.

If you have daughter(s) are they natural?
- I don’t have any children. When I do have children, they will all be natural

What does it mean to you to a natural mother with daughter(s)
-N/A

What have you learned from this experience that you can take with you for the rest of your life?
-I have learned that Natural Hair is BEAUTIFUL! There’s no need to cover up the person that God has made me to be. I have also learned that what works for someone else may not work for me, so it’s important to always keep that in mind. Natural hair is sooo versatile, one day I can rock my TWA and the next I can rock a twistout. I love it!

March 10 – National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day

HIV/AIDS is a serious public health issue affecting nearly 280,000 women in the United States.1 While men account for most HIV/AIDS cases, the impact on women is growing. In addition, research shows that, when compared to men, women face gaps in access and care.

The new Affordable Care Act and National HIV/AIDS Strategy will help change that. The new law prohibits all insurance plans from putting lifetime caps on the dollar amount that they will spend on benefits. In the past, patients with HIV/AIDS, cancer, or other chronic diseases ran the risk of hitting a lifetime cap and losing access to care. The law also restricts most insurance companies’ use of low annual dollar limits on benefits. In 2014, annual limits will be eliminated. In addition, the Affordable Care Act will help those living with HIV/AIDS be better able to afford their medications. The National HIV/AIDS Strategy will help:

* Reduce the number of people who become infected with HIV
* Increase access to care and optimize health outcomes for people living with HIV
* Reduce HIV-related health disparities

  1. Do you know your status?

  2. Do you get tested? If yes, how often. If no, why not?

  3. Do you know someone living with HIV/AIDS?

Koils by Nature will be Honoring Women for the Month of March

2011 Theme – Our History is Our Strength

Our shared history unites families, communities, and nations.  Although women’s history is intertwined with the history shared with men, several factors – social, religious, economic, and biological – have worked to create a unique sphere of women’s history.

The stories of women’s achievements are integral to the fabric of our history.  Learning about women’s tenacity, courage, and creativity throughout the centuries is a tremendous source of strength.  Until relatively recently, this sphere of women’s history was overlooked and undervalued. Women’s achievements were often distorted, disdained, and denied.  But, knowing women’s stories provides essential role models for everyone. And role models are genuinely needed to face the extraordinary changes and unrelenting challenges of the 21st century.

While women’s history is a relatively new field of study, one important scholar is Gerda Lerner. She is credited with teaching the first women’s history course, establishing the first graduate program in women’s history, and publishing numerous books and treatises on women’s history. In recognition of Gerda Lerner’s  pioneering role in establishing the field of women’s history as well as her generous role in mentoring women’s history scholars, the National Women’s History Project is honoring Gerda Lerner by offering her latest book Living with History/Making Social Change at a 30% DISCOUNT.

Gerda Lerner supported our work even before we were the National Women’s History Project.  We will always be indebted to her not only for her tenacious, unrelenting, and pioneering work in the field of women’s history, but also for her well-documented research which demonstrates that Our History is Our Strength.

Here is the infamous Willie Lynch Letter written in 1772 The makings of a Slave!

Greetings,

Gentlemen. I greet you here on the bank of the James River in the year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and twelve. First, I shall thank you, the gentlemen of the Colony of Virginia, for bringing me here. I am here to help you solve some of your problems with slaves. Your invitation reached me on my modest plantation in the West Indies, where I have experimented with some of the newest, and still the oldest, methods for control of slaves. Ancient Rome would envy us if my program is implemented. As our boat sailed south on the James River, named for our illustrious King, whose version of the Bible we cherish, I saw enough to know that your problem is not unique. While Rome used cords of wood as crosses for standing human bodies along its highways in great numbers, you are here using the tree and the rope on occasions. I caught the whiff of a dead slave hanging from a tree, a couple miles back. You are not only losing valuable stock by hangings, you are having uprisings, slaves are running away, your crops are sometimes left in the fields too long for maximum profit, you suffer occasional fires, your animals are killed. Gentlemen, you know what your problems are; I do not need to elaborate. I am not here to enumerate your problems, I am here to introduce you to a method of solving them. In my bag here, I HAVE A FULL PROOF METHOD FOR CONTROLLING YOUR BLACK SLAVES. I guarantee every one of you that, if installed correctly, IT WILL CONTROL THE SLAVES FOR AT LEAST 300 HUNDREDS YEARS. My method is simple. Any member of your family or your overseer can use it. I HAVE OUTLINED A NUMBER OF DIFFERENCES AMONG THE SLAVES; AND I TAKE THESE DIFFERENCES AND MAKE THEM BIGGER. I USE FEAR, DISTRUST AND ENVY FOR CONTROL PURPOSES. These methods have worked on my modest plantation in the West Indies and it will work throughout the South. Take this simple little list of differences and think about them. On top of my list is “AGE,” but it’s there only because it starts with an “a.” The second is “COLOR” or shade. There is INTELLIGENCE, SIZE, SEX, SIZES OF PLANTATIONS, STATUS on plantations, ATTITUDE of owners, whether the slaves live in the valley, on a hill, East, West, North, South, have fine hair, course hair, or is tall or short. Now that you have a list of differences, I shall give you an outline of action, but before that, I shall assure you that DISTRUST IS STRONGER THAN TRUST AND ENVY STRONGER THAN ADULATION, RESPECT OR ADMIRATION. The Black slaves after receiving this indoctrination shall carry on and will become self-refueling and self-generating for HUNDREDS of years, maybe THOUSANDS. Don’t forget, you must pitch the OLD black male vs. the YOUNG black male, and the YOUNG black male against the OLD black male. You must use the DARK skin slaves vs. the LIGHT skin slaves, and the LIGHT skin slaves vs. the DARK skin slaves. You must use the FEMALE vs. the MALE, and the MALE vs. the FEMALE. You must also have white servants and overseers [who] distrust all Blacks. But it is NECESSARY THAT YOUR SLAVES TRUST AND DEPEND ON US. THEY MUST LOVE, RESPECT AND TRUST ONLY US. Gentlemen, these kits are your keys to control. Use them. Have your wives and children use them, never miss an opportunity. IF USED INTENSELY FOR ONE YEAR, THE SLAVES THEMSELVES WILL REMAIN PERPETUALLY DISTRUSTFUL. Thank you gentlemen.”

LET’S MAKE A SLAVE

It was the interest and business of slave holders to study human nature, and the slave nature in particular, with a view to practical results. I and many of them attained astonishing proficiency in this direction. They had to deal not with earth, wood and stone, but with men and, by every regard, they had for their own safety and prosperity they needed to know the material on which they were to work, conscious of the injustice and wrong they were every hour perpetuating and knowing what they themselves would do. Were they the victims of such wrongs? They were constantly looking for the first signs of the dreaded retribution. They watched therefore with skilled and practiced eyes, and learned to read with great accuracy, the state of mind and heart of the slave, through his sable face. Unusual sobriety, apparent abstractions, sullenness and indifference indeed, any mood out of the common was afforded ground for suspicion and inquiry. Frederick Douglas LET’S MAKE A SLAVE is a study of the scientific process of man-breaking and slave-making. It describes the rationale and results of the Anglo Saxons’ ideas and methods of insuring the master/slave relationship. LET’S MAKE A SLAVE “The Original and Development of a Social Being Called ‘The Negro.’” Let us make a slave. What do we need? First of all, we need a black nigger man, a pregnant nigger woman and her baby nigger boy. Second, we will use the same basic principle that we use in breaking a horse, combined with some more sustaining factors. What we do with horses is that we break them from one form of life to another; that is, we reduce them from their natural state in nature. Whereas nature provides them with the natural capacity to take care of their offspring, we break that natural string of independence from them and thereby create a dependency status, so that we may be able to get from them useful production for our business and pleasure.

CARDINAL PRINCIPLES FOR MAKING A NEGRO

For fear that our future generations may not understand the principles of breaking both of the beast together, the nigger and the horse. We understand that short range planning economics results in periodic economic chaos; so that to avoid turmoil in the economy, it requires us to have breadth and depth in long range comprehensive planning, articulating both skill sharp perceptions. We lay down the following principles for long range comprehensive economic planning. Both horse and niggers [are] no good to the economy in the wild or natural state. Both must be BROKEN and TIED together for orderly production. For orderly future, special and particular attention must be paid to the FEMALE and the YOUNGEST offspring. Both must be CROSSBRED to produce a variety and division of labor. Both must be taught to respond to a peculiar new LANGUAGE. Psychological and physical instruction of CONTAINMENT must be created for both. We hold the six cardinal principles as truth to be self-evident, based upon following the discourse concerning the economics of breaking and tying the horse and the nigger together, all inclusive of the six principles laid down above. NOTE: Neither principle alone will suffice for good economics. All principles must be employed for orderly good of the nation. Accordingly, both a wild horse and a wild or natur[al] nigger is dangerous even if captured, for they will have the tendency to seek their customary freedom and, in doing so, might kill you in your sleep. You cannot rest. They sleep while you are awake, and are awake while you are asleep. They are DANGEROUS near the family house and it requires too much labor to watch them away from the house. Above all, you cannot get them to work in this natural state. Hence, both the horse and the nigger must be broken; that is breaking them from one form of mental life to another. KEEP THE BODY, TAKE THE MIND! In other words, break the will to resist. Now the breaking process is the same for both the horse and the nigger, only slightly varying in degrees. But, as we said before, there is an art in long range economic planning. YOU MUST KEEP YOUR EYE AND THOUGHTS ON THE FEMALE and the OFFSPRING of the horse and the nigger. A brief discourse in offspring development will shed light on the key to sound economic principles. Pay little attention to the generation of original breaking, but CONCENTRATE ON FUTURE GENERATION. Therefore, if you break the FEMALE mother, she will BREAK the offspring in its early years of development; and when the offspring is old enough to work, she will deliver it up to you, for her normal female protective tendencies will have been lost in the original breaking process. For example, take the case of the wild stud horse, a female horse and an already infant horse and compare the breaking process with two captured nigger males in their natural state, a pregnant nigger woman with her infant offspring. Take the stud horse, break him for limited containment. Completely break the female horse until she becomes very gentle, whereas you or anybody can ride her in her comfort. Breed the mare and the stud until you have the desired offspring. Then, you can turn the stud to freedom until you need him again. Train the female horse whereby she will eat out of your hand, and she will in turn train the infant horse to eat out of your hand, also. When it comes to breaking the uncivilized nigger, use the same process, but vary the degree and step up the pressure, so as to do a complete reversal of the mind. Take the meanest and most restless nigger, strip him of his clothes in front of the remaining male niggers, the female, and the nigger infant, tar and feather him, tie each leg to a different horse faced in opposite directions, set him afire and beat both horses to pull him apart in front of the remaining niggers. The next step is to take a bullwhip and beat the remaining nigger males to the point of death, in front of the female and the infant. Don’t kill him, but PUT THE FEAR OF GOD IN HIM, for he can be useful for future breeding.

THE BREAKING PROCESS OF THE AFRICAN WOMAN

Take the female and run a series of tests on her to see if she will submit to your desires willingly. Test her in every way, because she is the most important factor for good economics. If she shows any sign of resistance in submitting completely to your will, do not hesitate to use the bullwhip on her to extract that last bit of [b----] out of her. Take care not to kill her, for in doing so, you spoil good economics. When in complete submission, she will train her offsprings in the early years to submit to labor when they become of age. Understanding is the best thing. Therefore, we shall go deeper into this area of the subject matter concerning what we have produced here in this breaking process of the female nigger. We have reversed the relationship; in her natural uncivilized state, she would have a strong dependency on the uncivilized nigger male, and she would have a limited protective tendency toward her independent male offspring and would raise male offsprings to be dependent like her. Nature had provided for this type of balance. We reversed nature by burning and pulling a civilized nigger apart and bullwhipping the other to the point of death, all in her presence. By her being left alone, unprotected, with the MALE IMAGE DESTROYED, the ordeal caused her to move from her psychologically dependent state to a frozen, independent state. In this frozen, psychological state of independence, she will raise her MALE and female offspring in reversed roles. For FEAR of the young male’s life, she will psychologically train him to be MENTALLY WEAK and DEPENDENT, but PHYSICALLY STRONG. Because she has become psychologically independent, she will train her FEMALE offsprings to be psychologically independent. What have you got? You’ve got the nigger WOMAN OUT FRONT AND THE nigger MAN BEHIND AND SCARED. This is a perfect situation of sound sleep and economics. Before the breaking process, we had to be alertly on guard at all times. Now, we can sleep soundly, for out of frozen fear his woman stands guard for us. He cannot get past her early slave-molding process. He is a good tool, now ready to be tied to the horse at a tender age. By the time a nigger boy reaches the age of sixteen, he is soundly broken in and ready for a long life of sound and efficient work and the reproduction of a unit of good labor force. Continually through the breaking of uncivilized savage niggers, by throwing the nigger female savage into a frozen psychological state of independence, by killing the protective male image, and by creating a submissive dependent mind of the nigger male slave, we have created an orbiting cycle that turns on its own axis forever, unless a phenomenon occurs and re-shifts the position of the male and female slaves. We show what we mean by example. Take the case of the two economic slave units and examine them close.

THE NEGRO MARRIAGE

We breed two nigger males with two nigger females. Then, we take the nigger male away from them and keep them moving and working. Say one nigger female bears a nigger female and the other bears a nigger male; both nigger females—being without influence of the nigger male image, frozen with a independent psychology—will raise their offspring into reverse positions. The one with the female offspring will teach her to be like herself, independent and negotiable (we negotiate with her, through her, by her, negotiates her at will). The one with the nigger male offspring, she being frozen subconscious fear for his life, will raise him to be mentally dependent and weak, but physically strong; in other words, body over mind. Now, in a few years when these two offsprings become fertile for early reproduction, we will mate and breed them and continue the cycle. That is good, sound and long range comprehensive planning.

WARNING: POSSIBLE INTERLOPING NEGATIVES

Earlier, we talked about the non-economic good of the horse and the nigger in their wild or natural state; we talked out the principle of breaking and tying them together for orderly production. Furthermore, we talked about paying particular attention to the female savage and her offspring for orderly future planning, then more recently we stated that, by reversing the positions of the male and female savages, we created an orbiting cycle that turns on its own axis forever unless a phenomenon occurred and reshifts positions of the male and female savages. Our experts warned us about the possibility of this phenomenon occurring, for they say that the mind has a strong drive to correct and re-correct itself over a period of time if it can touch some substantial original historical base; and they advised us that the best way to deal with the phenomenon is to shave off the brute’s mental history and create a multiplicity of phenomena of illusions, so that each illusion will twirl in its own orbit, something similar to floating balls in a vacuum. This creation of multiplicity of phenomena of illusions entails the principle of crossbreeding the nigger and the horse as we stated above, the purpose of which is to create a diversified division of labor; thereby creating different levels of labor and different values of illusion at each connecting level of labor. The results of which is the severance of the points of original beginnings for each sphere illusion. Since we feel that the subject matter may get more complicated as we proceed in laying down our economic plan concerning the purpose, reason and effect of crossbreeding horses and niggers, we shall lay down the following definition terms for future generations. Orbiting cycle means a thing turning in a given path. Axis means upon which or around which a body turns. Phenomenon means something beyond ordinary conception and inspires awe and wonder. Multiplicity means a great number. Means a globe. Crossbreeding a horse means taking a horse and breeding it with an ass and you get a dumb, backward, ass long-headed mule that is not reproductive nor productive by itself. Crossbreeding niggers mean taking so many drops of good white blood and putting them into as many nigger women as possible, varying the drops by the various tone that you want, and then letting them breed with each other until another circle of color appears as you desire. What this means is this: Put the niggers and the horse in a breeding pot, mix some asses and some good white blood and what do you get? You got a multiplicity of colors of ass backward, unusual niggers, running, tied to backward ass long-headed mules, the one productive of itself, the other sterile. (The one constant, the other dying, we keep the nigger constant for we may replace the mules for another tool) both mule and nigger tied to each other, neither knowing where the other came from and neither productive for itself, nor without each other.

CONTROLLED LANGUAGE

Crossbreeding completed, for further severance from their original beginning, WE MUST COMPLETELY ANNIHILATE THE MOTHER TONGUE of both the new nigger and the new mule, and institute a new language that involves the new life’s work of both. You know language is a peculiar institution. It leads to the heart of a people. The more a foreigner knows about the language of another country the more he is able to move through all levels of that society. Therefore, if the foreigner is an enemy of the country, to the extent that he knows the body of the language, to that extent is the country vulnerable to attack or invasion of a foreign culture. For example, if you take a slave, if you teach him all about your language, he will know all your secrets, and he is then no more a slave, for you can’t fool him any longer, and BEING A FOOL IS ONE OF THE BASIC INGREDIENTS OF ANY INCIDENTS TO THE MAINTENANCE OF THE SLAVERY SYSTEM. For example, if you told a slave that he must perform in getting out “our crops” and he knows the language well, he would know that “our crops” didn’t mean “our crops” and the slavery system would break down, for he would relate on the basis of what “our crops” really meant. So you have to be careful in setting up the new language; for the slaves would soon be in your house, talking to you as “man to man” and that is death to our economic system. In addition, the definitions of words or terms are only a minute part of the process. Values are created and transported by communication through the body of the language. A total society has many interconnected value systems. All the values in the society have bridges of language to connect them for orderly working in the society. But for these language bridges, these many value systems would sharply clash and cause internal strife or civil war, the degree of the conflict being determined by the magnitude of the issues or relative opposing strength in whatever form. For example, if you put a slave in a hog pen and train him to live there and incorporate in him to value it as a way of life completely, the biggest problem you would have out of him is that he would worry you about provisions to keep the hog pen clean, or the same hog pen and make a slip and incorporate something in his language whereby he comes to value a house more than he does his hog pen, you got a problem. He will soon be in your house.

Starting Anew!

Big Chop 1/21/2011

On January 21, 2011, I was looking in the mirror at my hair and on the phone with my BFF Sharnia and telling her I wanted to cut all my hair off!!  The day before I had hennaed my hair and did a deep conditioning avocado mask and attempted to do a satin braid out that my other friend Marci had posted on the Koils by Nature FanPage!  When I took out the satin braid out I looked at my hair and was so disgusted!! My hair was growing so beautifully but the color patch that I got a few months back was breaking off so bad and it was about a 3-inch difference!  I felt that there was no way my hair would grow back healthy!  I was suppose to get my hair in Nubian twist by Ms Jameesha Moore the following day, but I could not get my hair braided knowing I had sever color damage!  So while talking to Sharnia, I started cutting my hair…I said “no turning back now!”  I went scissor happy and then went to the barbershop to get my hair shaped!  I’ve had color in my hair before, relaxed and natural but this bleaching job was a bit much for my hair!  I would color my hair again, but I would never bleach it!

I am really enjoying my new cut and I love the fact that I can use Koils by Nature from the root to the ends and I can really document my hair growth; I also know HOW to truly take care of my hair!  When I did my big chop in Sept 07, (way before KBN) I was using Black Gel…and water!!  I didn’t know how to care for my TWA!  Now I can start right!!   I am so excited…all the men in my life love it and my baby boy Kendall asked if my hair was, magic…LOL!

A Note About the Different Qualities of Oil

Cold Pressed - A method of mechanical extraction where heat is reduced and minimized throughout the batching of the raw material. This helps the oil maintain its original state, constituents, and depth. Temperatures are rigorously controlled to ensure that it does not exceed 80-90 degrees Fahrenheit. Although not a practical method of extraction for all vegetable oils on the market it is highly regarded as the extraction method of choice.

Expeller Pressed - A method of natural, mechanical extraction and processing of oils where a small amount of heat is produced simply through the frictional heat created by hydraulic presses. This is usually around 120-200 degrees Fahrenheit and makes the oil suitable and economical as a base for cosmetics because of its fairly undisturbed molecular state. It also makes a fine food grade oil.
Refined – A fully processed oil where it has been exposed to all methods of refinement including a flash fluctuation in temperature as high as 450 degrees and winterization as low as -30 degrees, deodorization, which removes the heavy and often unsettling odor in oil, and finally bleaching, where natural clays and other mediums are used to alter or remove an oils color, and scent. This makes for an economical oil in cosmetics and body care products, but it is not the healthiest as a food grade oil.

Partially Refined – A process where only some of the methods available are employed to produce a manufactured oil. Only one or two of the three available methods are used in a partially refined oil. These include, but are not limited to; deodorization, winterization and natural bleaching. These methods are used for oils which have been known historically to go rancid quickly, and they are also used to further stabilize an oil or remove its heavy odor and deep color.

Unrefined – A process of mechanical extraction and screen filtering where no additional refining process has taken place. This ensures the finest quality product and makes the oil the most exquisite for food and cosmetic preparation. The unrefined process helps oil retain a rich, strong flavor and color that is true to its natural state. Unrefined oils are always darker in color and richer in scent.

A Note about the different qualities of oil All of the oils we stock have different and varying degrees of quality. And all of them have been processed by distinct and various methods.

There is a rise in the number of women choosing to go natural and bravely doing the Big Chop (BC). The Big Chop (BC) is cutting all the relaxed hair off at one time, leaving only the natural hair;  going to a barber is best, because they deal with natural hair on a regular basis.  The big chop is the most significant step in the natural hair journey and a very brave way to start.  Lots of women want to go natural, but they are afraid on how they may look if choosing to do the BC, its the fear of the unknown, how will people react?  How will I react?  Will my boyfriend or husband like me natural?  That’s why doing the BC is not only physically changing your looks and body, but mentally it’s changing you and how you see yourself!  For some it takes time and for others they embrace the new woman and hit the grown running!  I am always asked about transitioning and the BC, and I tell women, you have to mentally prepare yourself for the BC, when you are ready nothing or no one will stop you!  You will embrace and love the new REAL you!  The beautiful person that has been hiding behind relaxers and weaves, the beautiful person that God created in His own image, if you were not in love with yourself before going natural…you will begin to fall in love with yourself…..it’s a beautiful journey and I am so glad I have beautiful women to share this ride with…..

~Meet Ms Caneesha~

First off CONGRATULATIONS on your new natural journey!

How long have you been thinking about going natural?

I only started to think about going natural long term over the past 6 months, I have always done it temporarily every year.

Did/Do you have positive support on your journey?

I have an awesome support system my husband is my #1 supporter and my Big sis Pam is my 911 emergency operator when i’m discouraged about my hair she always comes to my rescue.

How did you feel after all the relaxed hair was cut off??

Cutting off my relaxer was no big deal because i’m not big on hair because i’m so diverse I love changing it up and chopping it off is nothing new for me LOL. What was your family’s reaction?
My family is use to me doing this every year and have always be supportive

Who, if any was your inspiration?
My biggest inspiration was Pam Jenkins and the KBN users on FB and most of all my husband when I mentioned going natural for at least a year he was sooo enthused and told me how much he’d love it and how beautiful i’d be

What products do you use?
I use KoilsbyNature products and I absolutely love’em

If you have daughter(s) are they natural?
My daughter is not natural right now but maybe soon she’s 7 and is loving her long swaying hair LOL What does it mean to you to a natural mother with daughter(s)
Being a natural mother with a daughter is awesome and i’m enjoying being a positive example and loving how i’m showing her there are other ways to be beautiful.

What have you learned from this experience that you can take with you for the rest of your life?

I have learned from this experience that my hair doesn’t make me relaxed or natural it’s my inner beauty that matters most…

Relaxed Caneesha!

Natural Beauty runs in teh family! Cannesha and her Mommy!

As we gather with family and friends to eat a delicious meal and watch football!

Take the time to thank God for all His blessings!

Happy Thanksgiving!!! I pray that you all have a blessed holiday with family and friends!

I am thankful for a lot this year! God has truly blessed me and brought wonderful people into my life!

I am thankful for my wonderful fans & customers who believe in Koils by Nature and scream to the top of the mountains on different blog sites, Facebook, Twitter & Youtube!

I am thankful for His grace & mercy & His faithfulness!

I am thankful to be living the dream God has put in my heart & wake up everyday LOVING what I’m doing!

I am thankful for the love and support from my family & friends (FB included).

This has been an amazing year for me…..I know 2011 will be even better!

My Dream 11/12/2009
Pamela
by Pamela KoilsbyNature Jenkins on Tuesday, November♥ 13, 2009 at 10:44am
I had the most powerful dream last night!!! I have never ever dreamed about God, even when I was going through what I thought were some of the worst moments in my life, when I was praying like no other. But last night, I dreamed about Him!! I was walking and not sure where I was, all I knew that it was dark and I kept walking, then I started to see light and felt warmth, as I moved closer to the warm light, a hand came down and a strong but soothing voice said “Trust Me!” I grab the hand and I felt safe, I felt filled with the spirit, I felt relief and I felt at peace!
I am on a Spiritual High and love it! Trust and believe in Him!!!
Love yall and this really happened to me last night :-)
Update 11/18/2010
This past Saturday, I celebrated my 1 year of leaving the government and pursuing Koils by Nature full time!  What better way to celebrate this special day than at the Queen City Hair Affair presented by Natural Connections!  I was so overwhelmed when I saw all the ladies waiting on Koils by Nature (I was 2 hours late….long story) if I wasn’t so tired I would have been crying the ugly cry!  The love and admiration I felt was so amazing; I was thanking the Lord with every sale and praised the Lord at the end of the event!!  I absolutely LOVE what I do.  God has put this in my heart and He has not failed me!  Anytime I have a tiny bit of feeling of doubt…God send someone to renew my faith in what I am doing!  I have been so incredibly blessed this year and I know 2011 will be and even more AMAZING year!  I am a living witness that when you live the dream God has put in your heart!  He will move people, places, things and circumstances all to work in your favor!  Having unwavering Faith in God is the first step…trust Him!  remember that both fear and faith is believing in the unknown; faith is of God, fear is the enemy!
My goal with Koils by Nature is to continue to provide you all with EXCELLENT products, customer service and content!
I love & appreciate you all soooooo very much!!!!
God Bless!
Pamela Koilsbynature Jenkins

I always wanted to get my hair set, but I was concerned about how it would look and how long it would last!!  I DO NOT, I REPEAT I DO NOT like sitting under the dryer!  Even when my hair was relaxed, it was always short and max dryer time was 25minutes!  Going to the Queen City Hair Affair, I met this beautiful natural lady and her hair was set!  I told her I was going to try it!  Well I did and I love it!!!!!!

11/18/2010

I did not got o my regular natural hiar stylist!  I took my own products:

Jane Carter Solutions Wrap & Roll

Koils by Nature: Replensing Hair Oil

Koils by Nature: Nourishing Hair & Body Butter

After 1 hour and 3 minutes under the HORRIBLE hair dryer! (lol)

Shrinkage is a BEAST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

There is a rise in the number of women choosing to go natural and bravely doing the Big Chop (BC). The Big Chop (BC) is cutting all the relaxed hair off at one time, leaving only the natural hair;  going to a barber is best, because they deal with natural hair on a regular basis.  The big chop is the most significant step in the natural hair journey and a very brave way to start.  Lots of women want to go natural, but they are afraid on how they may look if choosing to do the BC, its the fear of the unknown, how will people react?  How will I react?  Will my boyfriend or husband like me natural?  That’s why doing the BC is not only physically changing your looks and body, but mentally it’s changing you and how you see yourself!  For some it takes time and for others they embrace the new woman and hit the grown running!  I am always asked about transitioning and the BC, and I tell women, you have to mentally prepare yourself for the BC, when you are ready nothing or no one will stop you!  You will embrace and love the new REAL you!  The beautiful person that has been hiding behind relaxers and weaves, the beautiful person that God created in His own image, if you were not in love with yourself before going natural…you will begin to fall in love with yourself…..it’s a beautiful journey and I am so glad I have beautiful women to share this ride with…..

Today @ 5pm CST/6pm EST www.naturalhairradio.com

Tune in!!!!

Picture of my Hair Horror Story will be post after the show!

 

 

Here is my Hair Horror Story!

In January of 2008; only for months after my BC, I deiced to get a sew in weave; I wanted my hair to grow and I just had a baby so I did not want to have to deal with my hair!  I ordered my expensive Remy hair online; paid $200 to get it sew in so pretty!  I took my hair out about 6 weeks later and this was the results!

Close Up..I didn't think myhair was going to grow back!

Left Side

 

The Front!

Wen out and bought a wig...i wore it for almost 4 months!

This experience is what really pushed me into making my own products!  I did the research, found what herbs stimulate the scalp for hair growth, made my own oils, and rubbed my scalp with it every day!  My edges have grown back, but they are still so fragile!

What is your hair Horror Story?

 

My hair today after 2 years worth of growth!

The herbs that will stimulate your scalp for hair growth are burdock root, rosemary, calendula, nettle & horsetail…I use  these herbs in the Soothing Herbal Gel, Moisturizing Shealo Leave In Conditioner, Stimulating Hair Growth Rinse, Stimulating Hair Growth Serum and Pomades!

Hello Everyone,

Yesterday, I woke up as I always do @ 0630 took my oldest son to school, came home fed my youngest son breakfast and took him to school; I got home looking at the number of orders that I had to package and ship out; took a deep breath sat down at my computer, checked my email, updated the Koils by Nature Fanpage on FB & Twitter and for one moment, I thought to myself, “do I need to get a “real job” is this what I am suppose to be doing with my life?”  Now I do not have these thoughts often, but when I do….HE knows how to reassure me!  As soon as that thought came into my mind, my Koils by Nature line rang, I answered, “Good morning this is Pamela!” and the person on the, other end was stumbling over her words, and I said “Hello!” and she said, “is this Pamela Jenkins? The owner of Koils by Nature?”  I laughed a little and said ‘ Yes it is, how may I help you?”; she was taken aback that I answered the phone… she called to check on the status of her order, she was so excited about getting her products.  I informed her that her products would be mailed today and then we started to talk….about everything for an hour and forty-five minutes!!! She told me that she LOVED Koils by Nature and what it has done for her!  I knew this was God, He sent her to me to reassure me and my faith in what He has called me to do!  I feel truly blessed when my customers email me, hit me up on FB and call me to let me know how much they LOVE KBN!  I put love in everything that I do when it comes to KBN and I so bless that you all trust me with your hair and allow me to provide you with wonderful & affordable  natural products!

I am so thankful and grateful for each and every one of you!

Especially you Maly, thank you for the wonderful conversation today!  Thank you Sharnia,  Nef, Marci, Gaye, Devorah, Tamara Wright, Nakeisha, Ayana (iHeartmyHair), Kizzy (Rockin My TWA) for being a SuperDuper Koils by Nature supporter!  I appreciate you all so much!

Love, peace, & blessings

This video is so amazingly awesome! I am soooo happy that in this day and age of being bombarded by the Beyonces, Nikki Minajs, weaves, lacefronts wigs and more weaves; that little girls get to see a Sesame Street Character that looks like them and she talking about “loving her natural hair” *tear* How cool is that??!!! This character was created by the Head Writer (Caucasian) at Sesame Street for his adopted Ethiopian daughter!!!  When she started asking questions about her hair…they didn’t straighten her hair or put a relaxer in it!  Her Daddy, create this character to help her embrace her natural beauty!!

Mark my words this family will be on Oprah by the end of the month!

Share this video..post it on your walls, tweet and email to everyone!

I am have nothing against Beyonce, Nikki Minaj, weave or wig wearers, (I used to be a weave queen) it just that’s what we see that ALL the time and it’s refreshing to see a children’s character with curly natural hair and loving it!!!!

Love, Peace & Blessings!

Amazon has been selling this “Ghetto Fab” wig since 09 and now Kohls & other online stores are selling these wigs under the same name…..so now being natural is “ghetto” this is truly offensive!Thanks to Dawn: here is the company information:
California Costume Collections, Inc.
210 South Anderson Street Los Angeles, CA 90033

Here is the #323-262-8383  I will start calling tomorrow!

http://www.californiacostumes.com/

They can at least change the name to afro wig or curly wig….but “ghetto fab” is a slap in the face!

http://www.amazon.com/Funky-Ghetto-Fab-Piece-Black/dp/B0040CZ4H8

I am going to send my complaints to Amazon and the Company that makes this product!!
