Rastafari: Correcting Misconceptions About the Rastafari Movement
Rastafari
By Ras Tyehimba
May 26, 2013


The article, 7 Misconceptions About Rastas and the Rastafari Movement, by an anonymous writer aimed to clear up misconceptions of the Rastafari movement but instead, perpetuated even more misinformation. While there is some truth to what the author is getting at in terms of the doctrinal diversity of the movement, there were some disturbing aspects. The author acknowledges that "Rastafari is primarily a Black movement that seeks to reconnect Black people with their African roots and promote Black unity". But he/she seems to only state that as a doorway to proclaim: "Humanity is of the same origin; we are all one family. Rastafari seeks to unite all humanity together in love. Rasta is not exclusive."

Certainly humanity in all its diverse manifestations is of the same origin. However, without addressing the history of what transpired after our common origins in Africa, and all the relations of power and privilege, then persons can easily take the reality of our common origins and reach distorted and dangerous conclusions that perpetuate and reinforce structures of domination. Without addressing the history of various relations of domination and subordination it is easy for people to jump from pointing out our common origins to making arguments for Whites Repatriating to Africa or Race Mixing to End Racism.
