Correct man if man is wrong, Idren, however is it not fair to summarise the logic of most white Rastafarians for their intervention in Ethiopia?
1. They understand the King's intentions better than we do.
2. They believe and follow the Bible more than we do. (just in this thread itself Gad has reminded me to read the "whole of Revelation" being that in my black ignorance I must surely have read it selectively! *LOL*)
3. They love Ethiopia more than we do.
4. They will work harder to develop Ethiopia than we will.
These all have a VERY familiar ring to African peoples.
