What is the criterion for embracing someone? Do we simply embrace someone because they feed us a line of acceptance? Do we embrace all Rastas? Or do we look at their character and base our allegiance on their INTEGRITY?
Recently a simple and reasonable request was made on this board, which you totally dismissed and proceeded to disrespect not only the board and Amon, but my country and schools that a few of us are trying to build.
How many of your peers would tell you that you were wrong and abusive, abusive in a way that defied all logic. How many would allow you to drop your filth in their homes and embrace you still without pointing you to clean up your mess.
This is the problem, you came on this board and you used it to advertise your own agenda/board, no problem, you disagreed with many points, no problem, however you took it a step further. Your behaviour became trashy.
You may ask who am I to tell you my feelings.
I am just one of the few Trinidadians who engage these issues and could afford to volunteer time to bring these subject matters to others who were not exposed to it.
Many serious minded African-Trinidadians do not own their own systems and share computers. You may be quite amazed how many are far more analytical of these issues than what is displayed on many boards that I visit. They however do not have the outlet. Some of us are working on this.
I tried told hold my tongue when I saw you re-appear on the board, but right is right, and someone need to tell it to you straight.
My honest feeling is that you are a hypocrite and I really do not care how many Rastas embrace you. Your conduct speaks louder than your words. You lack what is necessary to build these 'bridges' of 'peace and Love'. YOU LACK INTEGRITY.....
To understand race issues and spiritual matters you must first have integrity.
