franksta said : 'I think the situation you are trying to elucidate and address is not so much "Garvey" or "Selassie " Rasta but the slow Christianization of Rastafari which will eventually lead to the westernization of Rastafari .'
yes I. seen.
Eja said,"Make the hebrew stick with the hebrew while the Africans return to where they belong."
were not the original hebrews african?
were not the original christians hebrews?
Eja also said,"Ask this question, from what we knew of Marcus Garvey and his experiences, do you think he would be worshipping as some rastafari do in this day and age?"
Hon. Marcus published an editorial showing his dissatisfaction of the Emperor in one of his magazines did he not? Marcus seemed to be very dissappointed and critical of the Emperor's approach and his solution to the Italian invasion. so the answer would be most definitely not, that Marcus would most likely not be chanting Rastafari.
Brother Eja, do you relate more to the Garveyites or do you relate more to Rastafari? i do not mean to "label" anyone or come across offensive, just inquiring of your perspective in order to gain better overstanding of the topic.
