In Response To: Rastafari People Are Now World Wide (Ras Marcus)
I'm not speaking of the past contributions of the elders. I do however feel that the current path that we as Rastafari people are trodding will not lead to INI freedom.
Infact I believe that when Rastafari people were few in number, that we were more effective, and got more done. But like any positive movement by black people, it becomes invaded by non blacks, and the invader's values begin to clash with the teachings of INI elders.
For example, I already discussed the teachings of leonard howell. Yet as soon as INI accept non blacks, now we have to hear how outdated howell was, and many call him racist.
Also we as black people never had a probelm with the NYABINGHI order. Now once non blacks appear among the movement, all of a sudden INI have to change the meaning of the term "NYABINGHI"?!?!?
I was taught by my elders, that the name "NYABINGHI" means "DEATH TO THE WHITE OPPRESSOR". Now a days I hear the term means "DEATH TO THE WHITE AND BLACK OPPRESSOR" ?!?!?!? WHAT?!?!?!?
My point is, if we as Rastas have become more tolerant of whites, then why not be more tolerant to gays?
As I stated before, if I had to write a term paper on who caused more damage to the AFRIKAN culture, it would have to be whites, not gays.
Why is it that whites are given a free pass, and gays are not?
peace & love
