See - I ask, "christ " in what sense does not exist?
The "christ" in a white man's christian sense ----I say no he did not exist.
"Christ" in the sense that it is a story out of Africa which has been adopted----I say yes that ancient African story existed.
"Christ" in the symbolic sense as a role model for us to strive towards "perfection of divinity is everyones duty." I say yes that symbol exist
Now, Selassie I
*A Man trying to be the best human he could be?
No matter how you look at it---it all seems respectful. I personally say GOD-SPIRIT and I have met island Rastas that say the same.
Couldn't we place a Gandhi, Mandela, or Dalai Lama in Selassie I category?
