THERE IS NO SEPERATING HAILE SELASSIE I FROM THE RASTAFARI MOVEMENT....if you do that it is not RASTAFARI anymore.
If ones have a PROBLEM with Haile Selassie I why call yourself Rasta, why identify with Rasta...you need to go & start your own movement & Leave Rastafari Sons & Daughters at peace to Hail Our Black God & King. I respect a mans or womans opinions about our God & King but dont be a hypocrite & hang around Rasta so you can change them...or else you would be guilty of what the Europeans did.
Saying you are Rastafari & downplaying His Majesty is contradicting yourself, you sound foolish....also I hear all this talk about the Amhara oppressing the Oromo I have done my research since i heard of that idea & till this day every oromo person I spoke with held His Majesty in High regards they said that when Mengistu came Ethiopia crumbled...so Why are you trying to flare up a tribal war?
