Greetings good friend,
I do apologize for the manner in which I responded in some of my posts to you. I think the 'sillyness' is just a part of my personality that will always be there (even when I am quite old) - I tend to be a humorous person by nature but also take things very seriously (very very seriously). Sometimes, my 'sillyness' could very well be misplaced. Especially in a discussion so very important and crucial to the future wellfare of Africa and the humanrace.
So hoping you'll accept my apology on that front.
I also understand deeply (deeper than you may ever know) your feelings for wanting to exclude I. I will graciously honor your request with no ill feelings. I UNDERSTAND. Out of RESPECT I will not frequent this board.
I would like you to sincerely ponder upon and respect the fact that I did not go 'seeking Rastafari' ... but it is quite the opposite... Rastafari came and got me. That's that. I have no choice in the matter and it is impossible to 'turn around.' I would die behind those words. If we were face to face and you were asking me to prove that I am Rasta by staking my life on it, I would graciously, calmly and happily bow to your blade.
But it is not impossible for me to respect your wishes and understand why. And so I&I will.
As for the supremacy discussion - I agree with Rootka Zeb that it's about Jah Supremacy ---- Jah Supremacy reigns and as Jah people I&I should all have power and pride to the fullest extent. Again, I understand your stance and your motives and respect them. You are very wise and a great warrior, without I's like you the movement would move.
ISAIAH 43. v.3
For I am the Lord thy JAH, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour: I gave Egypt for thy ransom, Ethiopia and Seba for thee.
In closing this reasoning (at least withdrawing I-self from it) I leave I&I with this:
'Fear not: for I am with thee: I will bring thy seed from the east, and gather thee from the west;
I will say to the north, Give up; and to the south, Keep not back: bring my sons from far, and my daughters from the ends of the earth;
Even every one that is called by my name: for I have created him and her for my glory, I have formed him and her; yea I have made him and her.'
Jah Bless and fight on, Heather
