In Response To: race mixing + racism (ras adam simeon)
A deliberate policy of race mixing will not solve the problem of racism any more than granting titles to peasants etc will erase a class system. Racism is a problem on its own, born out of the delusion that one race is inherently inferior to another, that one race has a monoploy on Man's virtues and another on his shortcomings.
I have met many Balck Britons who are on this race-mixing programe. The reason they have told me is they wish to improve themselves. It would take 4 generations to remove visible evidence of Black ancestry. SO in this case, the object of race mixing is racist as per my definition- these Blacks are doing it because they feel there is something so terribly wrong in being Black that they will do all they can to see that their descendants can escape this affliction.
I have been asked by many white Rastafarian girls if I would marry a white woman. The reply has always been "Yes, but for the same reason I would marry a black or Chinese or whatever". Judge me, my brothers and sisters, does that make me morally superior and free from racism?
I am Black. But I know for a fact that I have ancestors from the different races. It is JAH who made the people, and it is the people who invented racism.
There are those that would deny a white person the right to worship Rastafari. I would never prevent anyone from their salvation. What are you afarid of? That the Rastafarian convert in Lithuania or Sweden would prove to be more faithful than you?
I remember one Twelve Tribes chap, he was from Switzerland. He married a Zimbabwean girl from the ghetto, and he lived there. He had done repatriation, something which many Blacks are yet to do.
For me, there can only be one race- and that race is called Rastafari.
