Question: Ask The Nuwaupians, Was Dr. York a Hypocrite When it Came to Having Chemically Relaxed/Processed Hair? 

Answer: Nuwaupians suffer from a mental condition known as Cognitive Dissonance and will attempt to justify York's hypocrisy as a result of that psychosis.



Before discussing York's hypocrisy of processing his hair, let me explain what is meant by Nuwaupians suffering from cognitive dissonance.

Cognitive Dissonance refers to a situation involving conflicting attitudes, beliefs or behaviors. This produces a feeling of discomfort leading to an alteration in one of the attitudes, beliefs or behaviors to reduce the discomfort and restore balance etc.

For example, when people smoke (behavior)  and they know that smoking causes cancer (cognition) they will attempt to condone, excuse or justify smoking.

Festinger's (1957) cognitive dissonance test results suggested that we have an inner drive to hold all our attitudes and beliefs in harmony and avoid disharmony or (dissonance).

The concept of cognitive dissonance was developed and tested by observing certain religious cult members and observing how they reacted when their beliefs in the end of the world failed by the world not ending, then how they justified and made excuses to maintain the belief in the cult, it's leader and the cult's teachings.

This is why most Nuwaupians will view the facts of York having a conk too difficult to accept even when it's in their face.  This is partly because York spoke so harshly about blacks who chemically altering their hair.  Even on a couple of occasions York would verbally attack people who he says were "stretchers", men who would  "stretch their hair", citing (Minister Louis Farrakhan) as a prominent example.


In the early 1990's, York taught a new concept about "black people's hair" which he called having, "9" ether.



"...9 ether is a texture of hair that is woolly and kingly or what many people would call 'kinky' or 'nappy'.  The highest of all spiritual powers, activated through the nature and hormones of the human Eloheem, manifesting 9 to the ninth power of 9, which is the highest of supreme mathematics.  As seen in Nubian's hair texture, the number 9 is a symbol of birth.  The follicles themselves twist and forms loops or ringlets.  This is what gives the shafts the appearance of a spring, but in reality you are looking at the number 9 which stands for 9 ether..."

Even after writing the above statements, York would continue to use harsh chemicals on his hair to look either like a "black Indian" or some other mixed stock.  The chemicals York used to straighten his hair goes back a long way, as far back as the early 1900's.



    Madam C. J. Walker, a black woman made millions from the straightening comb, but it was a black inventor Garrett Morgan who brought about the hair straightening chemical paste known as the "Conk".



Some of York's supporters may say, "at least it was made by black people" Nuwaupians or their friends making statements like that is cognitive dissonance at work.  It's a matter of integrity, honesty, trust and credibility, not a matter of justifying York's hypocrisies.  York spent many years speaking and writing on the subject of "good hair" verses "bad hair" or the symbolism of "wool hair" versus "goat hair" as seen from in the following publication.  York begins the topic in the first language this way,


What You Nubians Do To Your Hair Because Of This Nappy Complex?

You burn it, you perm it, you process it, you bleach it, you conk it, you cover it, you dread it, and you extend it, until it's energies are cut off...










York in his actions could care less about having an Afro or a process.  This is expressed through his actions. For him to issue insults to women for having their hair relaxed, saying that they "French Fry"  their hair to look like white people, while at the same he was having his own hair relaxed, shows that York was a major hypocrite.  

Maybe he excused his actions by convincing himself and his followers that it was acceptable because entertainers processed their hair.  Whichever excuse York used, there's no disputing the facts that he was a hypocrite each time he attacked what black women did to their hair by using chemicals, straightening combs and extensions.  

If straightening hair according to York is living in the image of the beast, then in whose image was Malachi York living in?
