Quote of the Day

“I don’t care where you are in your life right now Blackwoman. I don’t care at what level in this society you may currently be, but you have already been declared a “Goddess” by nature. Are you listening? “You” have already been declared a divine “Goddess” by nature…a “Goddess”! You are already an heir to the throne, and the legacy of Divine Ancient Royalty is in the very blood that courses through your veins, at this very moment. See, regardless to who and what you may think yourself to be “you” have automatically been declared a “Queen Goddess Blackwoman”, simply from your birthright. “The Mother of Civilization”! This is your true nature!”-Akil

Meet Your Mommy!: Mitochondrial Eve, Mother of Us All!

Mitochondrial Eve

This is our Mommy, Mitochondrial Eve. Dr. Ishakamusa Baranshango states, “Mitochondrial Eve refers to more than one woman, a group of women, several thousand with the same strand of mitochondrial DNA”.   According to Newsweek:

Mitochondrial Eve is believed to have lived between 100,000 to 200,000 years ago and is the common woman ancestor of all  huemans and humans. Evidence show that Mitochondrial Eve lived within the sub-Saharan region of Africa.  Mitochondrial Eve is described as being the most “fruitful,” meaning that her genes are present within all huemans and humans today. Mitochondrial Eves’ descendants left Africa and ventured out into and settled in other parts of the world around 90,000 to 180,000 years ago. Mitochondrial Eve’s descendants are said to have been “endowed” with “special advantages” that other early humans did not have, which allowed them to populate the earth and leave their genetic marker via Mitochondrial Eve.

There it is! This is part of WHO YOU ARE Black Woman/African Woman. This is Your importance and status on planet earth from a scientific perspective. This explains why the Black/African Woman was chosen by God, herself and Nature as THE ORIGINAL WOMAN WITH THE ORIGINAL WOMB. It is YOUR womb, that according the the ancients is the most sacred and  created and birthed ALL Peoples and nations on planet earth.

Why I Created This Blog

I am The Original Black Woman 13. I created this blog as a counter to the relentless and ongoing psychological warfare via the media against the psyche of the African (Black) Woman. This attack on the African Woman’s character, mind, image, and body didn’t began a few years ago, a few months ago, a few years ago, or a few decades ago. It began when Africans came into contact with the Europeans hundreds of years ago.

Because of the demonization of the African Woman some Black Women deal  with it by becoming angry (which is a defense mechanism and is understandable within an anti-black people, anti-black woman society), some slip into depression and despair coupled with feelings of inferiority, worthlessness, and many Black Women internalize this inferiority complex by becoming self-hating or anti-self. Black Women have made TREMENDOUS contributions and achievements to world history and civilizations for thousands of years before Europeans came into existence, but our contributions like that of Black (African) people as a whole are hidden from us and suppressed by the global system of white supremacy (racism) in order to keep us in a state of feeling inferior to white women/people. The white supremacist media is continuously at work to  and brainwash Black Women (and girls), Black men (and boys), and everybody else via television, radio, books, magazines, social media, and other forms of mass media coupled with the infamous European standard of beauty that Black women are worthless, undesirable, and unbeautiful compared to non-Black non-African Women.  Examine the 2 before and after pictures below:

This is Irene Major, former model from Cameroon, West Africa and wife of Canadian oil tycoon, Sam Malin. Major admitted last year that she spends thousands of dollars in skin lightning cremes because she feels “prettier” in light skin. Her sister also commented about this disturbing trend among many African women in which they feel pressured to conform to Euro standards of beauty and that rich African Men tend to marry light or white women. I’m not judging this sista, but its just SO SAD how this is affecting women in the African Diaspora and how we so desperately need to learn and know our history. Sistas are destroying their beautiful melanated skin because of the constant message that “lighter is better.” This psychological warfare against the African Woman is a THREAT to Black Women and Girls physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health. We must take steps to protect ourselves one being is to learn WHO WE ARE; no. I’m not talking about  your name, address, or where each one of us are from but our historical significance, presence, and status on planet earth.

This blog is my individual effort to share knowledge about the historical status, contributions, and achievements of Black Women from ancient times to the present. Learning OURSTORY will help Black Women to survive and build a defense mechanism against anti-Black Woman attacks online and offline. I’ve spoken with, read the experiences, and heard Black Women say that once they learn OUR TRUE STORY they have a new sense of pride and esteem and they no longer feel inferior or worthless. Black women must rise up and reclaim our identity, history, and culture for ourselves and for our people. I AM, WE ARE EVERY WOMAN!
