Greetings my beloved, much love and humble standing, it is important to know that when people make mistakes they are to be corrected. We really cannot sweep 500 years of slave trading activities under the carpet, since the carpet will decay, and the truth will still be very visible. The people of African origin were uprooted from Mama Africa the land of our fore parents, and our great Ancestors, it is now more than 500 years since our people are in captivity, if you all care to egnore that, and decide to jump on the band waggon of the Rastafari Movemant, you can go ahead, but I must assure you, and others, that this is a racial issue and will continue to be a racial issue, until Africans and Africa be free, from Capetown to Cairo, and from Timbuctoo, to the River Nile, and no form of religious belief or indoctrination, is going to stop this from taking place. You can talk about going to Zion as much as you want, for that is just your belief and you imagination, but you do have a right to believe and imamagine what ever you like.
As for Ethiopia, it is just another part of the continent of Africa, from which Africans were kidnapped and brutalized across the middle passage, to the western hemisphere, where they were and still is being enslaved on the industrial and technological plantations.
I just do not know how you make out that Ethiopia is Zion, when the same kinds of things which are taking place, in other parts of this earth, are also taking place in Ethiopia. There are prisons, police, soldiers, sufferings, people have contention there, there is dis unity there, there are rich people there, there are poor people there, to go to Ethiopia, you have to be qualified to get a visa, and this is based on how much money you have, so in that case, if going to Zion was a thing that money could buy, the rich would go to Zion, which would included majority whites, but our ancient elders who have struggled throughout the early days, would not even have a chance to go to Zion. It would be really good if most of us, would make a great effort, to climb that high and sacred mountian internally, and get to the highest Pinnacle where humleness lives, then try to put into practice universal justice, and brotherly and sisterly love, everywhere upon the face of this earth. This is really where Zion is, Zion is not really for away, Zion is right inside of you, that is where HAILE I SELLASSIE I lives, as the power of the Iya Trinity. Zion is not far away, and Sellassie I is not far away. Give Justice to the African people every where, Africa for the Africans, those at home and those abroad. Zion is a Iyla place no sin cannot enter there.
Again I send many oceans of blessings,
ONE BLACK LOVE ONE BLACK HEART.
