No offense Sister, but this is one of the most ridiculous topics you have posted on this topic here. What is your point? Wha you don't think that I ain't Afrocentric? You don't know me period, because if you did, I am very Afrocentric, I teach my people dread. But there is a difference between you & I, in uplifting my African people, instead of dwelling all the blasted time on slavery. Even Marcus Garvey encouraged us to not focus on slavery too much, but work on building up a United States of Africa, so are you really listening to Marcus Garvey or other people?
I don't know what your intention was to post my topic, but its plain arrogant if you ask me. I think that you are a foolish Black woman, who like other Black people are blaming the white man for every blastid thing they go through. Its simply ridiculous, I rather listen to my teacher, Marcus Garvey, than others about African Unity! Garvey came to uplift his Black people, never did he undermine any race as you & others have done on this site. So I don't pay you people no mind at all, iz Garvey mi deal wit along wit Selassie I! If you knew me, you wouldn't have posted this foolish topic ya. I was born & raised in the Caribbean, & it is in the West Indies where the real revolution took place with the African slaves. Do some research for yourself.
You nor anyone else here can talk all the foolishness you want, I don't pay none of you any mind at all. Most of you who were born here in America, don't really know what Rastafari is to begin with. You just put all these foolish black radical thoughts which is antiGarvey & Selassie, into I n I Rastafari Movement. Do more studying meh son, because I will never agree with what some of you trying to indoctrinate into Rastafari now! If it ain't Selassie or Garvey, mi nuh want hear it taal! Because its the teachings of Haile Selassie I & the philosophies & opinions of Marcus Garvey, mek Rastafari how it is, not any other unnecessary thoughts from some of you Black American people.
That is how I learned Rastafari in the islands & I hope that some of you can learn what the Movement is really about, instead of putting other people's ideologies into Rasta. If you never even experience the livity of Rastafari, then do it, see it for yourself. Live up in the hills like de Rastaman still do, learn what Rastafari is really about. It ain't bout just dreadlocks, reggae, ganja,, but more than that meh son dread. Read Haile Selassie I's exact words & Marcus Garvey's philosophies, & don't put no one else's words, or make up your own ideologies on what the King nor the Prophet never taught for I n I Rastafari people.
For real, some of you Black Americans who claim to be Rastafari, are a joke. You're just a bunch of Rasta symphathizing Black Americans, who joined up different Black radical groups & try to bring these kind of thoughts into I n I Rastafari, creating pure division star! I've heard such foolish ideas from some of you, & that is not what Rastafari is really about! Das why mi always seh, ole skool Rastafari me stay meh son! Selassie I nor Garvey never preach any antiwhite speeches, but I've seen it here on this very site. His Majesty & Brother Marcus, said that they have white friends, but some of you here are nothing but pure racists fe real. Give us the teachings of His Majesty for we nuh want no devil philosophy! Give us the philosophy of Marcus Garvey for I n I only want to hear that great man, Brother Garvey! If it ain't Selassie or Garvey, then its not Rastafari taal. Selassie I! RasTafari!
