In Response To: rastafari spent entire life fighting White Racism? *NM* (seshatasefekht)
Greetings, as far as I am aware, the Rastafari Movement, has been a black popwer movement from it's early establishment, and it should still be a black power movement, having the responsibilty to struggle, for the liberation of African people everywhere. Marcus Garvey was the brother who told his followers about Ras Tafari Makonnen, and Marcus Garvey's movement was, and still is a black power movement, which still stands for Africa for Africans, those at home and those abroad.
It is really a shame, that the Rastafari movement is so mixed down today, that Europeans, can feel Authorized, to come on a forum of black reasoning, and can be trying to dictate to African people, concerning what our struggle for the liberation is all about, and are interfering, in the affairs of African people. If a European runs the risk of entering an african village, where reasoning is taking place, he must come with apologies, and come to ask for forgiveness, for the crimes which his or her Ancestors committed against African people. But to come as if they are teaching us, about our own affairs, is just really out of place, but what is worse, is when people from our own African village, would join with them, to plant their cultivation of divide and rule, right there in our community, we must find ways and means, to put a stop to these kinds of violation, on this black forum of reasoning, we must not allow it to take place.
Euorpeans are free to stay among themselves and pay attention to their own affairs, without the interference of black people, so we as African people must be allowed to conduct our own affairs without interference. It appears to me, as if, there are some Rastafari people, who are telling the young Europeans, that all they have to do, is to let their locks grow, and learn the splams of David and study the bible, and shout for Rastafari Haile Sellasse everyday and night, and offer some sacrament from time to time, and that will relief them, of the responsibility for Reparations, for the crimes of their ancestors. There must be some kind of responsibilties, by the following generation of the Europeans, but if Rastafari people arec telling these Europeans, that all is well, just become Rasta, then the Rastafari movement will then become a multiracial movement, instead of a black power movement like the original Marcus Garvey movement.
In the event, that the Europeans, decided to implement Reparations, Repatriation and pay compensation to Mama Africa, and these are really manifested, and every nation be living under their own orange, grapefruit, vine and fig tree, and peace is invented upon this earth, and holding strong, then we as Africans, can begin to discuss ttrading honestly, with other nations, and that includes the European, but until Africa and Africans are truly liberated, how can they expect to come into our villages, and dictate their ideas to us, by interfering in our affairs, and expect us to fall on our faces and worship them, no way, no interference will be allowed.
Again I send many oceans of blessings and self determination to African people everywhere
ONE BLACK HEART ONE BLACK LOVE
