Ras Marcus has written that HIM does not need to be defended however statements like those of Kelani leave one either shocked or confused.
Sister, how did His Majesty reject his African roots and favour what you call Solomonoid or Arabic roots as you claim? I hold no brief for his majesty but it is him who initiated and struggled to ensure the existence of OAU;it is HIM who supported the struggles in the southern africa , read Mandela autobiography about his meeting with his majesty and learn that HIM supported the MK the ANC's military army in 1962 with arms and money so how can you brand HIM a house negro!!
HAILE SELLASIE as well as Garvey had their own shortcoming and errors but we learn from their errors and take inspiration from the role they have played for the liberation of our continent and unity of our people.
Sister could you please provide the details to your statements lest they are reduced to another vitriolic venomous vilification of the king!
