Truth and Justice are very spiritual qualities, which deal with equality, by giving people their share which they are entitle to, by basic rights. Any person or persons who possess the internal qualities, to be able to give Justice to others, and to uphold and distribute truth and rights, are very spiritual people, whether they think that they are spiritual are not. The life of a
spiritual person is known by those Justful actions, which he or she takes, to distribute goodness to others, not just by the words which they speak. If one person speak about Justice, and does not distribute it, and another distribute it without speaking of it, that one who distributes it, is the person who shall be praised for his or her good works. I see nothing wrong with Europeans working with their own organizations, based on the principles of distributing Justice to African people, and any other people upon this earth, whom they have offended.
Speaking about the Rastafari movement, yes, indeed it was founded as a black power movement, as a result of the slave trading crimes, which were committed against African people, by Europeans, at home in Mama Africa and everywhere in this workld. It remains a Black Power movement, but has been infiltrated by Europeans and other races over the years. There are many European power movements in this world, there are many Chinese power movement in this world, there are many Indian power movements in this world, and so, there is our Africans power movement in this world, to agitate for the rights and liberation of African people.
Now lets get back to the spirit, there are various kinds of spirits, there are good spirits and bad spirits, there are honest spirits and dishonest spirits, there are peaceful spirits and warlike and violent spirits, the Europeans brought to Africa the spirits of slave trading activities, and put them into practical practive against African humanity. Our presence in the western hemisphere is clear and convincing evidence, of the abondonedment of African people in the lands of captivity, for move than five hundred years. So, now, it is up to you to look inside yourself, and see which kind of spirit you are talking about, whether it is the spirit of Justice, Repatriation, Reparation, Compensation, or the spirit of abondonedment. The journey of life continues. Take the best care of yourself and your people.
Again I send many oceans of blessings and self determination to African people everywhere.
ONE BLACK HEART ONE BLACK LOVE.
Baba Ras Marcus.
