I didn't realize that this was a game and someOne was keeping score. I thought this was what used to be Rastafari Speaks which is now Africa Speaks, Rastafari Speaks, Rasta Speaks meaning One is FREE TO SPEAK (even if they do not agree with the moderators). So just because there are those of us who do not agree with you your views or the views of the other two moderators who constantly defend you we are called names..."Antagonists". So does this mean you won....
Never once in any of my post did I resort to name calling or disrespecting you or anyOne else as a person. Yet because I and others do not agree with you using the terms negro/negroid we are antagonizing you.
I have been visiting this board since about 1998 when the vibes were good. Blessings always to Ras Forever. Right now I see that it has become a matter of agreeing with the moderators or else! What is going on here? I have also notice that most all of the familiar posters (Rastafari or not) have choose not to post any more. I am not just speaking about those who have been banned. There are many like I who do more reading than posting...I know many of them personally not just electronically.
I could hardly believe what others were saying about what goes on here was true. At first I was incline to agree with Ras Teyhimba when explained that there was a need for the change...rules were need...etc. I haven't posted here in awhile but decided to post what I felt about an issue with in SEVERAL of Bantu-Kelani's postS (so who is really obsessed). She seemed so bent on drilling and drilling the terms negro/negroid. So growing up in the South during the 60's I decided to express how I felt about the subject. Instead of a reasoning there was a dictatorship whereby the whip was brought out and Ones where whip for not accepting something that was not paletable to them. I really wanted to believe that I could post and not be lumped in a group or attacked for doing so. Not the case. I now really can say that I too have experienced the slave like attitudes of those who have taken over the this board. That is no exaggeration.
If your stance is so strong you do not need a whip.
Bantu Kelani you remind me of another poster that would frequent this board a lot. She got banned. The irony in this is that you for One would really be suprised at who I am referring to.
I wish ya all well on dis here plantation. Massa's got his picks. Dem da Ones over yonda wit da whips. All Jah children just tryin ta break loose from mental slavery but dem overseers ack like dem gettin gold fer da more da whip.
Give thanks. There is nothing like the experience of a thing to really know the truth as it is revealed. Too much control at the helm loosen up and let the people speak. Use some LOVE instead of the bitters....
Live and Love
