[[[ it surprises me that you who cliam to have studied rasta for 10 yrs and was a second generation Rasta . Makes a life alter decision based on false assumption. His Imperaial Majesty emperor Haile selassie I did wear dreadlocks for seven yrs btween the ages of 7 and 13 as Liege Ras Tafari. ]]]
you are correct he did have locks when he was young, but the question is why did he cut his hair ?
how come when he Ascended the Throne of David he had no locks. none of his children had locks,
nor any member of his family.
[[[ Rastafari is not about smoking weed , wearing red green and gold and chanting loud utterance . Your parents is were you may lay the blame , for they themself must not have known Rastafari . ]]]
I know Rastafari is not all about smokin weed, but Herb to the rasta man is Sacred, and "brings you closer to Jah" which is a belief not shared by Haile Selassie I, he did not smoke.
I know Rastafari is not all about growing locks yet Locks is an essentail part of Rastafari, yet Haile Selassie I cut his locks from an early age.
within Rastafari is it a sign of weekness when one cuts they locks and shaves their face.
