I always read these boards and I have read Rootsie making some of these same statements before. No one ever attacked her character with such ferocity.
What is different now???
She has a site and a link posted to the top of the board.
I have noticed that while many may have been saying 'one love' over the past two years they were hiding deep-seated resentment for this White woman. This is a point I have heard being made many times on this board that behind all the big ups, one love and rainbow talk ther are serious divisions among rastafari.
As soon as this White woman presented her true history and this message board posted a link ALL HELL BROKE LOOSE.
Could it be the GREEN EYED MONSTER that was waiting for the appropriate time to emerge?
No more onelove no more Rastafari showing the world how white and black can live as one.
No, now we have nasty innuendoes being placed and vicious attacks coming from a selected few, it seem that you can't please all the people all the time. I trust Rootsie more now because she stayed and stated her position and showed courage in the face of many hypocrites, many who may have preferred that she lie.
I will continue reading for now.
