I know brother Malcolm, El-Hajj Malik El-Shabbaz.
Rastafari is NOT a religion, you say. That's very interesting indeed. Then how come lots of Rastas worship a man and hail him as God in flesh, the second advent of Christ,Christ in his kingly character or whatsoever etc.?
You see, whether RastarianISM (yes, it's a ism for sure to me) is a religion or a philosophy (?), it's simply full of a whole lot of evident contradictions within itself for real. You know, no offense, but I think that if a clever person studies Rastafarianism, and then uses his/her intelligence and reason for a minute all the inconsistencies can be easily underlined.
My question puzzles you?
Indeed I wasn't questioning or arguing the fact that some black folks might properly and rightly be suspicious towards certain so-called white persons. I was actually pointing out how unjust and "un-religious" would be for a religion or a liberation movement to exclude a certain group of people, since I think God makes no distinctions as all men are equal.
Hailé Selassié was definitively a man according to me.
