The more I read these things, the more convinced I become that there is a serious cyber-infiltration/propaganda campaign going on here against Rasta.
Lofty, altruistic slogans uttered by white "rastas" fuelled on high-grade(is dem control de best herb, check Humboldt and Mendo)who have the means but not the might to go a JA to Bhingi camp or Grounation a chat dat chat.
I have rarely met a white "rasta" who was truly comfortable with the true dynamics of Black/African culture. Yet, just because someone shouts the name Rastafari or can spell Rastafari on a computer, they expect everyone must get paralyze and docile using we own culture to silence InI. The lack of creative originality which creates the need to jump on another culture in order to have a culture seems psychologically bent if not emotionally orphanned.
There are those who claim that Jamaica and even Africa are not the most important Earth springs of Rasta culture and Irit.
But the fact remains is that Rasta never woulda get created inna dem house inna dem land.
The history of Africans everywhere over that last 400 years has been one of not being able to forge we own cultures, anywhere(except Ithiopya) without BEING LEFT THE F__K ALONE.
It is this white "rasta" must keep in mind when opening they mouth. The right or wrong of the argument is not the issue, the issue is about African people being allowed to make they own life for once. Learning to create one's own history is a miracle InI must pull off.
