For so many years I have been disappointed about the manner in which the Rastafari people's movemant has been axed down to so many splintered parts, and that interfered with Repatriation, when Repatriation is really being agitated for African people, from the days of Marcus Garvey and before. I have written here on many occasions, that Africa is for Africans those at home and those abroad. If some Europeans,are willing to accept, that their European Ancestors have committed crimes of slave trading activities, against African people at home and abroad, then they should have their own organization, and rebuke their own people and agitate against their own people for the slave trading acts which they have committed against African people everywhere.
Even Mama Africa today, is not in the best of situation, there are mixed multitudes there and Foreign governments and agents who are telling African leaders what they should do and what they should not do, and most of them are going along with their orders. So, what are us to say to the following generation of African people, what shall our answers be, when we are confronted with all these contradictions.
Silver and gold and diamond and all those precious stones, which the people of this earth, worship and use to decorate themselves, are nothing but vanity and great deception, because those glittering gold chains around the necks, and the glittering ear rings and nose rings and others, most times distract you from from checking the attitudes and character of the individual, both male and female, but we have already destroyed the minds of our people, with those very worthless distractions, which you will not be able cook and eat for dinner if there is no food in the village. 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.
