In Response To: Morten, stop the MISINFORMATION (Issembly For Rastafari Iniversal Education)
Thanks for a speedy reply.
Well, I must be misinformed about the farming plans. But that was not my point...It was an example. My point is to stop trying to separate people with the negativity.
Whites cannot call themselves Rasta?
It's like kids in school saying, "You can't come play with us, cause your such and such" Only here we ( adults ) limit it to if your black and white. Foolishness.
As I see you are eager to reply. I know ethiopian titles and history. So I know what a ras is.
I speak for my self, I don't feel I need a stamp of approval from anyone to be rasta. To me it's a personal thing. Selassie is my guide, so I put my trust in HIM. Like it or not. He has given me this color, thats what I look like, but my soul can be as colorful as an african man. So my very simple message is just to leave the racial separation alone, it's a dead end. It's been tried before.( Ref. HISTORY OF THE WORLD)
