In Response To: WHY DO BLACK RASTAFARIAN MEN DATE WHITE WOMEN? (Bantu-Kelani)
First I think it is important to know that everyone who professes Ras Tafari do not live accordingly. There are many wolves in sheeps clothing. I wonder if there is a higher percentage of Rastafari men who date white women compared to the percentage of Black men in general who date white men? I dont have any statistics, but I do not think that it occurs at a higher rate than the normal population of black men.
The question is if men who date/marry white women are really Rastafari? Because to I it is a contradiction for ones to profess to love black people but dont find it suitable to date/marry a black person. It is outright hypocrisy in my opinion.
But I do know that love exceeds all boundaries. I will not say that it is impossible for a black man to fall in love with a white woman. I just find it improbable that if one is pro-black and surrounds himself with black people, that he will end up having a romance with a white woman....considering that white women would not be in his immediate circle of Idren.
I think that if ones do not relate to Rastafari strictly through herb and reggae music, then they will be more likely not to be in the company of white people...other than maybe the workplace.
I think the important thing is to focus on the children from these unions other than ones own selfish, lustful desires.
It seems that Rastafari is not exempt from Willie Lynch tricknology.
One black love
