"i am not 'trying to say anything'. Read what I wrote without being so defensive and you may discover much.
" i have no problem with you calling Haile Selassie your Shepherd or God. As a matter of fact you should extend that consideration to every Black African. You should be considering all Black Africans your God. "
"I said that you should extend your concept of God to include all Black people. "
does those two definitions mean the same thing ?
if yes ,
i am not at all being defensive , you are avoidin simple questions , here they go again :
what kind of meaning you give to the word god ?
do you pray and kneel to every black man you see ?
*Study the history of the 'intellectual' development of Europeans and you will see how they got bits of ideas on the meaning of life from Black people.
i know dis .
*Of course they were unable to get the big picture back then.
i haffi add , now either .
*While evolving White, they lost their deeper history.
does not this count for all humanity ? who do you know who have not lost our deeper story but is tryin to get track of it ?
* It is hoped the reason Whites are attracted to Black Movements is to try to get the missing pieces.
RasTafari exactly .
*But instead, many repeat the same mistake of just getting a little idea and feeling they got the whole story.
true for all .
are the many blacks you speak of as per the definition you bring , non-rastafarian ?
so now , want you try a clarify and answer mi 2 little questions regarding how you see every black man to be god ?
