Raspect! thank you for your comments on my post
1) I really can't get this "words game" about historical and his-story, etc... I'm not from Amerika, I'm from Argentina, and I must say my English is pretty poor.
2) Now I understand what you all, guys, mean when you talk about the difference between racism and prejudice, actually there is not such a big difference in my language and my country... but I guess that is because the history is pretty different here. But, I understand the difference you make between those two words and I don't want to offend anyone by using the wrong word.
3)About the I being a Rasta... ok, as I said before, I'm not interested in labels, I'm not gonna be tied to labels, I have my beliefs and I have my convictions, and if I have to change them in order to get a label, then I don't want that label, seen? But you are not getting what I mean. I'm not saying black people should just forget everything and act as if nothing has happened in these last 500 years, no, that's not what I say. What I say is that we ALL should AIM to that equality without hard feelings and divorce from all the prejudice, seen? But that's only what I think. That world without prejudice is only MY personal ideal and it may be different to you or any other, seen? Also, of course there are a lot of different interpretations of everything, but in MY personal interpretation, I think Selassie aimed to the equality of all men.
Ah, by the way, I agree with you that it will take more than just a personal attitude to make Babylon fall.
