This is my point indeed.
It is my opinion that many who claim to be Rastafarians do not know the history of Eithopia and the other side of the rule under Haile Selassie.
They hold on to a romanticized story and reject all other stories that were told by his close personnel. The history under Haile Selassie’s rule was not a pretty one but how many Rastafarians are willing to deal with the facts.
