As a matter of fact, Heather, on re-reading Ras Quaballah's post, when he mentioned the word "exclude" he wasn't talking about you, he was talking about himself... saying that if people wanted to exclude him from this board because he has a different opinion from some who don't feel 'race' should be an issue, then fine, go ahead and exclude him, he doesn't care and he won't change his beliefs.
You see what I mean about seeing things that aren't there? Read things carefully.
I am curious, you talk about how "you didn't find rastafari, rastafari found you", how did that happen? What brought you into rastafari?
