In Response To: Irie to see De I still here Rootka (Ninja Ras)
You know how I stay with this site Ninja Ras. Just can't get caught up with all this talk on Black & White, it's ridiculous to me. Not necessary in Rastafari, we are supposed to be teaching the people not tearing them down with all this prejudice talk. His Majesty taught us African Unity, but also Universal Unity, & that is what I must accept always. Selassie I. "
Please explain how this message between two BLACK men who know each other can be translated as arrogance....It was a personal exchange between two people...strictly RAS Rootka..another long timer on this boards...opinion..which supposedly he is allowed to exchange within the rules...
Could you also explain how this is possible
"Eurocentrism again, the most glaring insensitivity of white male privilege has been demonstrated.
when Rootka is a Carribean Black Man...
