Rasta Revolution: Black Revolutionaries
Rastafari
By Yasus Afari
July 12, 2010 - ourafrikanheritage.com


Power-fool nations and the African crucifixion

The history of human civilization provides impressive and overwhelming evidence that the essence and glory of the African People inspires, influenced and illuminated the ancient world centuries before other nations. Interestingly, this occurred while many of the now/contemporary, individualized and power-fool nations were groping in the darkness of their ignorance and underdevelopment. Indeed, the centuries of Europe benefited extensively from African civilization when they were awakened from their prolonged slumber, about six centuries ago. It is now an established fact that Greece, Spain, ancient Rome and others were guided and enlightened by the wisdom and glory of African civilization, which they gradually filtered and introduced into Europe.

Rasta Revolution: The New Rasta, A New Lost Nation
Dread
With Misguided Leadership and Misdirected Priorities
(Who is determining the rastaman's priorities nowadays?)

By Ras Jahaziel
August 21, 2009 - rastafarivisions.com


Foreword

When a house is burning or a ship is sinking it is typical for those that are imperiled to focus urgently on the immediate problem that needs to be fixed...that is if they are not dead asleep or drugged by the dope of domestication. Similarly the priorities of any people who are beset by crisis ought to be characterized by urgency and focus on the immediate problems that need to be fixed.

The first questions they should ask of any program or event is: Whose problem is it fixing; whose consciousness is it elevating? Is it reaching the people that need the most help; is it fixing the hole that is leaking?

Is it elevating the consciousness of the sick masses of African people who continue to be systematically indoctrinated with the virus of self-hate that leads to the present epidemic of self-destruction? Is it creating alternatives to their current pitiful economic dependency?

Rasta Revolution: Bicentennial Global Dialogue (4)

HOW TO DAM THE RISING FLOODWATERS OF BLACK REPARATIONS AND RELEASE IT IN MANAGEABLE LITTLE STREAMS

Without a doubt, the rising tide of Black reparations is sure to affect all nations, because Black labor and Black resources are the foundation stones upon which all “First World Wealth” is built.

If this rising tide continues, the weather forecast for White Heaven looks pretty ominous.

Hence there is a need to pump billions of dollars into The Culture of Dumb Down, otherwise known as The Culture of DELIBERATELY CULTIVATED IGNORANCE.

Rasta Revolution: Demystifying The Issue Of Repatriation
Dread
by Ras Jahaziel
www.rastafarivisions.com

REPARATIONS and REPATRIATION for the descendants of slavery and colonialism are two inseparable twins that hold between them the cornerstones for the formation of a new international morality. If one is stripped from the other, JUSTICE fails, and the evil slave-master triumphs once again. Without Reparations, repatriation is more likely to become the repatriation of the privileged.

One should never forget that once upon a time there was an argument amongst the slave-masters about what should be done with the slaves after Emancipation. Some said "Let us see to it that they will never be able to really OWN anything, because we cannot afford to let them become independent. Keep them so busy working that they will never have much time to think, and saddle them with debt so that they will never progress. They can stay here, but they will always be kept busy in the pursuit of powerless-ness." Some said "But we need to keep this place ALL WHITE, so let us bring in more Caucasians and pack these niggers on a boat and send them back to Africa bare-back and empty-handed the same way how they came." The descendants of slavery therefore find themselves today in a situation where the man that is tossing the coin is doing so on one condition "HEADS, I WIN, TAILS, YOU LOSE." Whichever way the coin falls, it represents the triumph of injustice.

Rasta Revolution: The Wrong Concept Of God
Dread
By Ras Jahaziel

THE WRONG CONCEPT OF GOD KEEPS A PEOPLE POWERLESS AND AIDS THE SLAVE-MASTER

Because of what we were taught for a very long time, we sort of expected that God was going to come and change things, but every God that came just visited for a short while and then left us in the same situation. As is the custom with slave people, our weakness of spirit has often caused us to worship messiahs rather than be INSPIRED by messiahs. When the messiah has ascended, we find ourselves gazing into the sky or passionately intensifying our icon-worship in the hope of salvation.

Little have we realized that messiahs always disappear so that followers would put an end to EXTERNAL worship and find the might and power within.

Rasta Revolution: The Cure For Acute Negro-Psychosis
Dread
By Ras Jahaziel

As a people who not only have been robbed of our land but also robbed of our soul, the first priority on the pathway of liberation has to be REDISCOVERY OF SELF. Failure to rediscover self means that we will continue to play the game of life with the cards that white oppressors have craftily marked in their favor. With such cards we are bound to keep on losing, and losing, and losing, and the eventual consequence will be eternal servitude. We will only be fooling ourselves if we believe that slavery is a past tense thing that could never happen again, yet every day we continue to play with the same old deck of cards. In many cases even our very concept of right and wrong may have to be re-examined, for we have been programmed to embrace the slaver's religiously-cloaked choices, not knowing that the man who was saving our souls was saving them to be devoured by his next of kin. The safest attitude to adopt is that THE SLAVER IS ALWAYS WRONG UNTIL PROVEN RIGHT. Nothing that comes from the big house should be casually digested without thorough examination to see if it has been treated with slow poison.

In the process of REDISCOVERING SELF we must inevitably become more creative, because rediscovering self really means rediscovering our own inner God who is the head of all creation.

Rasta Revolution: Rastafari and the WorkPlace
Dreadlocks
PoeticEmpress writes

In the workplace many bosses who claim they accept persons with locks, are not so acceptant of their staff being Rastafarian after all and I am not necessarily referring to the wearing of locks part. Actually it seems many bosses are wolves in sheep clothing meaning they accept you with your locks since so many persons in the community have locks, some for convenience, some for style and those who are Rastafarian, but at the interview stage they can't say who is who. So they hire you and you work for them but then they start to ask you personal questions on different occasions when they run into you as they try to find out more about you and then what you start to realize is that they have a BIG problem with a Rastafarian person but by all means they hide it in a smart way.

Rasta Revolution: Baba Ras Marcus: Rastafari and Religion
Dread
By Baba Ras Marcus
December 09, 2004

Be at peace with the Creator who ever you conceive him to be, for the Creator is in Ethiopia, but he is also in every single part of the earth, sea, and sky at the same time, he is in humanity and also in all living creatures at the same time, the Creator is everywhere, and there are no limits that can be placed on him or her geographically speaking. The birds and other creatures do sing their praise in their own unique ways, and they are truly living closer to the laws of Mother Nature and Father Time, more than any human being upon the face of this earth including myself.

There are some very serious lessons to be learned and we should widen our internal mental and spiritual faculties, and learn as much as we can. We can believe as much as we want to believe, but when we know, that is when we achieve knowledge. We must be very careful, that we are not teaching things to our people which we cannot prove; religion is a very dangerous weapon of minds destruction. Let your yes be yes and your no be no, words are very important, but the actions which we take are much more important than the words which we speak.
