In Response To: Re: Ras Adam / Ayinde (ras marcus)
Ras Marcus, I thank you for your response.I appreciate your time in this discussion. Ras Marcus, you stated in your response- my presence would be creating more suspicion in the Rastafari movement (there is too much already), this is what I have felt all along and this is exactly why I know that I must approach with all due respect. I do have to admit that I feel a little like i am a "in the closet Rasta" or something because in my heart I feel I must follow the king(and declare my love for the KING to the world), but I am weary that when I show this to others I will be dubbed a suspicious character in the movement. Not that this suspicion isnt rightly warranted( IT IS RIGHTLY WARRANTED) , I will never dispute this, or think that I can completely understand the entire black struggle, because I know I cant. When I hear white people around me use the "N" word, I immediately de-nounce it, when asked by whites what the big deal is, I respond ," our race was not massacared for the last 500 years, how the fu** should we know what it feels like to hear that word again!!!!" White people can never truly understand the struggle, so I understand that we can not try to fit ourselves in the black "back to Africa" movement, but I feel that I still am meant to follow the teachings of H.I.M., praise Rastafari name, and do the best work for Jah that I can on this planet. Thank you for the info. on the CURE group Ras Marcus, it seems that work in this kind of group is the best that I can do as a white interested in the Rasta movement. I konw there are several white dreadlocked ganja smokers that misrepresent the glory of rasta, do not even understand the nazarene vow,etc...but there are a few of us that want to trod though Rasta with rightuosness and respect, again Thank you Ras Marcus for your insight on how I should do this. any additional insight is very welcome. bless, Adam
