>In the cas of the Ethiopian Elder, was the problem "each one teach one" or was it egocentric ideas and inflexibility? Why did he need to believe Selassie is God to teach the I's Ethiopian language? Wasn't his experience interesting enough as he worked with HIM personally?
Raspect Mandingo, I man felt the same way. After four weeks, I was the only student left. This teacher, Fesseha Zion Kassai, was one of the most dignified people I have ever met. His wife would invite sistrin over and show them how to make injera and bake dabbo. Funny thing, the sistahs was more interested in Ethiopian cooking than the language, but it did show to I the fact that Rasta sistrin were better able to humble in order to learn than bredrin. There is a mental stubborness rooted in Babylon that InI must defeat.
I don't think it was egocentered or inflexibility on the part of the bredrins, I feel many of them had problems as students in their youth and may have been embarrased to humble themselves, especially in front of the sistas.
