"How can Haile Selaissie be a symbol of divinity and revolution of the Black/African masses when he
often criticized his African heritage?"
this question may be answered by asking the same about Olodumare or Chango/Shango or Obatala'. in the vertical plane many Afrikans in the west have elevated His Majesty to the Head in the head or "on" the head as well as Marcus Garvey. this has now been in effect on the realms, not easily explained by european concepts of critical thinking, of the spiritual planes of exisistance for some seventy five years now. the flux has shifted and allowed this positive movemant entry, by virtue of Afrikan will, not to mention makana, jailhouse, razor , comb and scizzors.
as many voices clammor for attention ,hopefully toward positive intention, the world stage has been violated repeatedly by forces motivated to crush all unity amongst Afrikans and all the world's poor massive in general.
so the failings of Christianist, and or Islamist
and the religions of the Ancients ,in Afika and elswhere are evident by the current state of the world today. so many reject the 'hole of it and break brand new. in this sense, the concept Haile Selassie I is JAH ALMIGHTY becomes a tremendously
revolutionary statement. no longer can blame be placed elsewhere in the "heavens" but each man and woman deal and take up the struggle.
it appears that bullets encompass all overstanding right now, but we are more than animals as we are social beings and need mother and father to survive. whereas a puppy can be removed from it's mother , never see another dog again and as long as it is fed it will become a dog, with all insticts in tact. remove an infant from human contact, it will die or be vegetated. the law of the jungle is for the jungle , to man and woman was given speech to reason, when shall they Rise to this? this is the question of the ages? WAR !
so WAR it is ...against white supremacy, global hegemony, poverty, landlessness, rhetorical ethics, romantism, the concept of "relationships",
hypocracy, historical amnesia, self-righteousness,
end times histeria, egomania, avarice/greed etc.
