In Response To: seventy-two comrades............ (seshatasefekht)
Blessed to the High Impress,Raspect is due. I would gladly anwser BUT your question is very broad . To share my path to the foundation would take a long time and Im sure you dont really care to hear a story 20 years long.Also Im trying to step away from this kind of reasoning an keep with more pertinent issues. To awnser as best I can , shortly. The livity and teachment of the order I found to be the overstanding fari I resonated with . As opposed to tti, eoc or bobo.Then I found that Whites were aloud in the order. I sight Ras cosmos from finland and IKeLTafari as examples.I met Ras Elliot , the first white man to sit in ises in 74" an learned hard elders like Ras daniel, Ras Pidow an others gave him an open welcome. And with a video camera no less.Then I learned White bredrin an queens live in ithiopia an even helped build the tabby. All this I learned while young.15 an things , a long time ago . Dealing with the issue of white man on the harps , well black woman aint allowed on the harps either. Does that mean she's less? no , the heirarchy of the harps is establashed long before whites came in and even amongst black idren you gotta be in years to lick a kette. Bottom line is some Binghi bredrin vex and some are cool with a white man on the harp. Theres no concenus on the issue. Also it may change. On day a black or even a white woman may lick the kette! Only Jah can ordain it. Ini licked harps with a mostly black house over a Ras Michael yard L.A an it was illaful . ( though not a iffical ises) Personaly I respect heirarchy and tradition but also know things must sometimes change. Bongo Watto blazed hotta fire on the word Jah an once even broke up a mans are over the issue . HIM split the house an nuff ones vexxed on him .Still he is our patriarch .Point is , I know the written law on matters. I also know EVERY binghi man Ive ever met has and does stray from this written law. I do sight sheshemane as given to black peoples and ises in there is unique to the situation. As for corn burnin in the tabby, I know of two rasses there for centenary ises that dispute your claim . They are "white" an did lick the cup ( their own ,not a communal ).Still no one said not to. I know that there are some devisions amongst InI , but at least Ini are drinking from the same stream. I pray to see foward movmant toward universial rightousness for InI."Waving the banner high " Yours truly ,Binghi Lion
