peace and hotep,
ras davidsimmonds, you stated:
"if ones are saying that the color white is lucifer why would they talk about white rasta to clean the mess from the white mess trend?"
i for one would never imply that the skin tone commonly referred to as "white"(depigmented skin) was inherently sethanic. in literature and mythological images, i have never seen the "devil" or lucifer withe white skin. black or red seems to be the norm for that expression of destructive behavior or "evil".
ras davidsimmonds, i do not believe that ones have reverted to calling all caucasian people "devils" like the nation of islam once or may still do. even malcomnx distinguished the 'white mason' from other so-called 'white people' as being 'devils'(white masons).
this thread has more to do withe dismantleling 'white'ness - the calling card of 'white' pseudo-supremacy. although 'white' supremacist pretend to be angels of light like the light-bearer, lucifer, there are many caucasians currently re-evaluating the burdens of a false sense of privilege based on an alleged mythical 'white' skin fetish.
80% of all legal and illegal drugs(soma) are being consumed by people who classify themselves as 'white' and others as non'white'. why? they are medicating false senses of privilege and self imposed internalized oppressions.
ras davidsimmonds, what happens to so-called 'white' people who can not be 'like mike', or like dr king or malcomn or haile selassie or marcus garvey or john brown........
