OK I SEE I TAKE THIS ON BOARD.
It pains me to contradict what you 'know' but the terms I used are not my own 'idea and creation'. I heard a Senegalese Rasta describe himself as a 'Garvey Rasta' because he could not worship Haile Selassie as a God. That was all he said but it was enough to get me thinking and, responses like yours have proved that there is something in this.
You called me presumptous. What do you mean?
YES WHY I SAY YOU ARE PRESUMPTOUS, BECAUSE YOUR POST SUGGEST THAT THE PEOPLE WHO REVER THE EMPEROR ARE NOT WITH MARCUS GARVEY'S AFRICA FOR THE AFRICANS PROGRAMME, AND IT'S NOT RIGHT TO JUDGE PEOPLE LIKE THAT, I'M IN AWE OF MARCUS GARVEY SO NATURALLY I TAKE OFFENCE WHEN THIS GARVEY RASTA, AND HAILE SELASSIE I RASTA, CONCEPTION COMES UP.
OK SO THIS SENEGALESE RASTA AS YOU REFER TO HIM, SEE MARCUS GARVEY AS THE ALMIGHTY, IN PREFERENCE TO EMPEROR HAILE SELASSIE I, OR DID'NT HE SEE NONE OF THEM AS THE ALMIGHTY.
I KNOW THIS CONCEPT OF HAILE SELASSIE I RASTA, AND GARVEY RASTA, DON'T EXIST IN MOST RASTAFARI COMUNITIES, THIS MUST BE SOMETHING THE RASTA'S OVER THERE IN SENEGAL SEE AND BELIEVE IN.
LIKE I SAID TO YOU ALREADY, THIS FOR ME IS NOT A HAILE SELASSIE I VERSUS MARCUS GARVEY COMPETITION NO, NOT FOR ME.
THAT SAID THE POST IS INTERESTING THOUGH I DON,T AGREE WITH MOST OF IT.
MORE LOVE, MORE LIFE, ALL BLESSING AND ALL BLEST.
I AM HON KES AA ADOFO, (ADOFO) INTERPRETED IS ASHANTI FOR WARRIOR.
