Seems to me that the rastas on this board whether inverted commas are not, have been quite willing to share their views with you. It just so happens that you do not agree with and/or overstand those views, and consider them "winging", which is your prerogative. However at least some of the people involved with this board are doing some serious pro active works and not just "bellyaching". Real "multiculturalism" or whatever must surely involve people actually listening to what people from other cultures have to say, regardless of whether or not they agree with it or find it comfortable.
By the way it's a bit ironic that you're accusing kristine of not seeing past the color of your skin- she's as white as you are. Her pic is on the site somewhere. I do agree that she is patronizing based on other interactions with her. However she is certainly not representative of all the Rastas on this board who disagree with your stance, for whatever reason.
