You talk about "Rastafari" with the focus on Haile Selassie and I talk about "Rasta" as it existed in our remote ancestry.
I do call my self many things and Rasta is just one of them.
Rasta: The natural earth livity that was practiced by the most ancient Rastas for attaining wisdom.
I am also cool with just being called Ayinde (My legal name)
I don't claim Rastafari with the idea that only one person can hold this title, and because of the general confusion among many who claim Rastafari, I cool with ((( Rasta ))) by the most ancient definition as I have explained numerous times. More of my view on this is on the Reasoning Forum/General Forum - "Rasta, Rastafari, Ras Tafari?"
Taken from the Welcome message to this site:
(I am just adding this in case some did not see the update)
"Because of the confusion among some people about the range of issues that should be covered under Rastafari Speaks we have added two new domain names to the Website: RastaSpeaks.com and AfricaSpeaks.com.
This helps to spell out our direction and intention to bring three main areas of discussions under one umbrella. The General African focus is now clearer. The natural earth livity as was practiced by the most ancient Rastas, and views from those who see Haile Selassie as God are included."
We hope that this move clarifies the general intention of the Website.
