First of all, know that I am a Black woman form DR Congo who love and practice traditional African religion. I have a strong sense of spirit and I believe in Nature Spirits as well as the ancestors. You Rastafarians frown this form of worship. By doing so you give a disrespectful view towards ancestral African way of life, our history and all that is shameful. IMO, ONLY A CONSCIOUS BLACK PERSON SHOULD TAKE THE BOLD STEP TO ADVICE WHAT THE BLACK RACE SHOULD DO. NO ONE ELSE! Being a so-called "friend" of the Black race are you willing to let Black folk hold on to their culture? Share it with their people where they see please? Make them understand we are the people that have a very rich culture and teach them the world most basic instinct: SURVIVAL!!! So, if you are our "friend" let us use the good of our original traditions, customs, religion to educate our youth, equip them with useful qualities, foster pride in their achievements and all the rest that goes into defining a people. No matter what though we are going to keep our rich culture going and living whether you like it or not!
Furthermore, I barely understand your posts. Blacks are not all supposed to speak, read and write patois or whatever language you are using. Thus, if you really want to dialogue with me, please cut your patois for a little while or else I will be unable to understand you and communicate with you in the future. No disrespect intended.
