Long before Rastafari people were known and established, there were our African Ancestors, who were seriously struggling for the liberation of African people at home and abroad, for instants, there was Baba Tacky who led Tacky's Rebel-lion in 1760 in St. Mary in Jamaica, and Tacky was very samart too, it was Easter and time for easter holidays, and he knew that most people would be drunk including the man who was in charge of the Arms at Amory, so , that was when he broke in on Easter MONDAY MORNING, and take over the Arms he and his brethren, and raided various plantations, killing many slave masters, and getting those slaves to jion up with him.
They then stop at a place called Ballards Valley, for rest and refreshments, and that was when one of his own black people, slipped away, and went and inform his master where they were and what they have already done, as result, the slave masters were able to assemble there forces, and call on the Maroons, our own black people, to jion the fight against Tacky and his people, Tacky was finally killed by a sharp shooting Maroon, who's name was Davy. The lesson which we should learn from this situation, is that some times our own people can become enemies of our cause for one reason or another.
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.
