well i found that very interestin.. an i must say.. the name Ras Tafari holds a certain Word Sound Power, indicating the acknowledgement of Ras Tafari(Hail Selassie I) as the pivot of the livity.
Forgive mi if i missed it in the original post but Selassie seemed to be missing from it.... now dont get me wrong.. ones can enjoy share an indulge in the history of Nubia/Kush/Egypt Itiopia/Sudan and herald them black power but by basic utterance of Rasta(Rastafari) gives breathe to a new existence...
Back to the Roots
If we go back to the root where Ones first started proclaiming the title Ras Tafari they were arguing Black nationalist points but it would be naive of one to directly overlook the FACT that His Majesty defined the way in which 'Rasta' evolved as opposed to a movement occuring out of obscure conditions. Howell was arrested on counts of Selling Pictures of His Majesty Books, an Pamphlets tellin ones that His Majesty is the ALLMIGHTY. Issues of Human rights and socio-economic factors was still a concern, but the unmoveable fact that the Lion Hth prevailed stood in reverence above all. Yes the spirit an divine Essence has naturally existed before 1892, but now that he has manifested, Let JAH be praised.. Let HIM Haile Selassie step forth as the COnquering Lion of the Tribe Of Judah.. Rasta was supported on the basis that Emperor Hail Selassie superceeds any comman day philosphy, even the Garveyites bowed before HIM.. ..
i guess wit anyting it shall forever be a issue of reoccuring debate... for no two INI can come to the same exact truth.. but as to what and how we choose to impart it.. the power of authority ones need to be especially careful as to how they deliver their message....
