Much Thanks for the reasoning. I am asking questions about what you are saying because I am confused by what you are saying.
Did you answer this question?
"Do you think that the reason that these issues are brought up is to call us whites to defend Africans or the goals of the Rastafari Movement?"
Also this... I am confused by?
"no, these issues are not brought up for our benefit, that is not the proper focus. it is not about US."
I did not ask if you thought they were brought up for the benefit of us white people, although I feel that could also be another future discussion. I asked if you thought these issues were brought up as a call for us whites to defend Africans or the goals of the Rastafari Movement?"
Yes you are right when you say that us whites need to get out of the way and are never in a position to lead an African movement. There is indeed ways that we can gather resources in our community and pay what is due to the African community. We can take stock of how we have and do benefit from this white supremist system and all the ways things are tipped in our favor. It is crucial to continually examine ourselves, to work at changing this white mindset.
We can never forget the Roots Foundation of this African Liberation Movement, born out of the face of White on Black oppression, and realize how very much we have benefited from this Rastafari Movement, through its founders, leaders, and teachers.
