around the world, hundreds of millions of Nappy People are afflicted
with full-blown AANS, "Acquired
Anti-Nappy Syndrome." While
no nappy person is born with it, they acquire it from their parents
and family. AANS victims assault their hair with scorching metal
combs and grease, frying each nappy strand until it is straight,
to imitate the straight limp hair and hairstyles of Caucasians.
In the process, some burn their hair and scalps. Others assault
their hair with "chemical relaxers" (sodium or calcium
hydroxide) which are so dangerous and poisonous that it burns
the scalp shortly after applied, causing blisters and even permanent
scalp and hair damage if left on too long or used too often.
Additionally, chemicals from these relaxers are absorbed into
the bloodstream; they are carcinogenic and can even cause birth
defects. And since nappy hair keeps growing out as nappy as ever,
the assault must be periodically repeated to maintain artificial
straightness. Thus the hair is repeatedly damaged, forced to
be what it is not, forced with "lye," to lie by lying
straight. The scalps attached are likewise repeatedly damaged,
by exposure to, and absorption of applied poisons.
But the worse damage appears to go unnoticed
or even unacknowledged since this has become accepted "normal"
behavior; this is the damage to the psyches which own the scalps.
This psychological damage is "Acquired Anti-Nappy Syndrome,"
a form of self-rejection and self-hatred. The outward manifestation
of this inner dis-ease is the War on Nappy Hair. AANS
perpetuates and holds this war in place. The War on Nappy Hair was
taken to such extremes, that in some Caribbean islands during
the 1980s, not only was it illegal for Blacks to have locked
hair, but if they dared display it in public, they could be arrested
or even shot and killed on sight by the police! who were
Black themselves! And nappy foreigners sporting dredlocks, attempting
to visit these areas, were detained at airports and not permitted
to stay in the country unless they wore wigs or hats to hide
is rampant among the Nappy
only in Euro-centered, Euro-imitative societies
This means practically the whole world.
Thus around the world, Nappy People have been successfully conditioned
by their European colonizers to reject or scorn everything that
makes them unique as Afrikan people; their sable skin of varying
beautiful hues, full sensuous lips, broad noses, Afrikan culture,
Afrikan names, and their divine nappy hair -spiraling hair expressing
the divine Spiral Principle of Creation. The dictionary (like
everything in these societies) promotes AANS by demeaning key
words which commonly relate to Afrikan people. Example: "kinky,"
like the word "black," is associated with undesirable
characteristics. By the same token, key words commonly relating
to white people are elevated, thus "straight," like
the word "white," is associated with desirable characteristics.
Reflecting this attitude, the literature in the boxes of "chemical
hair relaxers" refer to straighter hair as "fine,"
and nappiest hair as "coarse."
