A question I too have asked, as well as another bredren here, with no answers yet. Other then that because it is HIM, this cannot be questioned.
So light skinned Afrikans cannot "lead" Rastafari Nations, yet is not Rastafari named after HIS MAJESTY RAS TAFARI HAILE SELASSIE I...who IS light skinned (GASP!) LOL!
Interesting contradictions. I would not be out there promoting ONLY light skinned leadership, as history shows us the downfall to this. Instead I would promote AFRIKAN LEADERSHIP, in whatever shade of brown, as long as it/they are RIGHTEOUS and dedicated to AFrikan Liberation.
Along side with you...I await the answers to our question. Watch out though sis, we may be considered "bullies" for doing so...or better yet, "not rasta"...or not "real blacks"!
Forgive them Father for they know not what they say.
