In Response To: Priest Adofo and Disciple... (rosalind)
I must agree that these two brothers have wasted their energies, verbally abusing each other, when their energies could be better used, edifying their selves as well as our people. I do hope that they will be forgiving of each other enough, to correct their mistakes and apologise to each other on this international Black Forum of reasoning, so that they can remove the vexation of spirits, which they have cultivated for each other, it seems to me, like over a period of time. What they have done is unprofitable spiritually to both of them. I do think Marcus Garvey was a great business man, but he has made mistakes, just like any other great businees men upon the face of this earth, and he did learn from his mistakes like any other person upon the face of this earth.
I am going to type two short paragraphs, from The Autobiography of Emperor Haile Sellassie I, Volume Two, My Life And Ethiopia's Progress.
We wanted Ras Getachew Abate with Ato Ephraim Tewolde Medlin, to enter Ethiopia through Gambela and jion Our army, we gave him (The Ras)a passport and money and he left. However, he remained in Cairo for a while, making all sorts of excuses, and eventually deserted us and defected to the Italian side. Although greatly disappointed, Our trusty Ato Ephtraim, however, returned to us and resumed his service. The above can be found on page 10, in the first paragragh of this page.
I would like to know from any one of you knowledgeable people on this Black Forum, if you think, that His Majesty did make a mistake.
The next article is found in the first paragragh is the on page 40 of the same book mention above.
While We were in England We befriended many people and in December 1937, on Christmas Day, received more than 1,000 letters and many Chrismas Greeting cards from America. The Americans asked us to make a radio speech in order to identify our supporters and thank them all. Thus, with Ato Wolde Giorgis Wolde Yohannes and Ato Ephraim Tewolde Medin, we left Paddington Station by Taxi for B.B.C Studios. On our way the taxi had a collision in which we fractured our knee bone and suffered great pain.
Again I am asking for the opinion of you knowledgeable brothers and sisters, did His Majesty make some mistakes.
Again I send many oceans of blessings and self determination to African people everywhere.
ONE BLACK HEART ONE BLACK LOVE
Baba Ras Marcus
