I man have only been treated with kindness and love in the EOC here in Berkeley. There are quite a few Ethiopian dreadlocks here in California who attend the Church. Many Ethiopian mothers did dread up their sons during the famine of the mid-eighties.
I opinion is that I would never disrespect the EOC, especially in Itopya. Africa is a place, seen? Easy to talk from afar. Inna Ethiopia, could be a bloodbath.
For I part, I woulda happy to repatriate to Ethiopia and have I and I family get absorbed completely in the culture, religion, and future of Ethiopia. While others might be content over who God is, I checking out the positive reasons why it is important to learn from the psychology of the only undefeated Black people in the world.
Nicholas, are you an Ethiopian? I don't check so, because all the Ethiopians I have met have been and are gracious people. Any visit to an Ethiopian market will reveal CDs made by Ethiopians with dreadlocks who are EOC and not Bahatawi. This reveals a lack of familiarity with contemporary Ethiopian culture.
The local Ethiopian community magazine has a full page ad on the back inside cover with a picture of Bob entitled: Bob Marley, ETHIOPIAN!
What else yu want, Nicholas.
