“Allow me the space to disagree with the European sister on what she thinks is right.”
Nothing wrong with disagreeing, that’s healthy.
”It is not right for her to decide how it will "eventually" be for this particular side of Africa. I was thinking that it would be proper for her to see how Africans are going to determine our future.”
I doubt she can decide anything for Africans and was giving her perspective based on her experiences.
”The idea of one prophesing that RasTafari will no longer have purpose among RasTafari Ones is slightly intrusive.”
The point being made was the concept of one man coming to save all Africans will no longer have a purpose and having seen her express that view before, I quite clearly understand the point. I too do not feel it is healthy to accept one person as the saviour for all people as that only plays into the mindless game of servitude. But I can clearly see how many have contributed and left us much to build on.
