* I think you get carried away and forget what you are writing! Here is what you think - "you want a dark skin African as the head"Öbut I am unpleasantly surprised you cannot give up being offended by what I say. Itís hypocritical. Are you in denial?

Even if you dont agree with what he stands for, you could at least refrain from insulting and disraspecting the Rastafari brothas and sistas on this forum who have an special affinity for Abbaba Jahnoi Haile Selassie. ]
* You're right, more often than not I donít like the Semitic people in Africa. And certainly I am not going to be silent about the Semitic Ethiopians either. What do you expect?
Itís important for you to prepare yourself mentally and spiritually discussing and debating Africans such as myself. Itís especially important if you have the opportunity to go to the Motherland because the bulk of people in black Africa tend to take a critical view of Rastafari. They believe " Rastafarians worship some former Ethiopian dictator and itís some nonsense." I just quoted what I heard in the streets of Kinshasa in Kongo.
Sure, I'm being hateful, and sure what the hell am I doing in here on this Rastafari message board, and sure I donít understand Rasta ideology, and a lot more like Iím not "Panafricanist"....but you should get used to it, because obviously not everybody is Rastafari!!!
