You said: "My stance has always been positive in dealing with bredren and sistren of all race and nationality. Rastafari is about unity and upliftment, and while some see this as naive, some would also say veiwing black nationalist issues as if they existed in a bubble as naive also."
Rastafari is about unity with whom and how? Rastafari is first about upliftment towards unity with JAH/ONESELF. If people are not clear on who they are uniting with they may very well be repeating historical mistakes and can end up "sleeping with the enemy" sometimes literally also. These issues also help us discern the awareness and character of those who wish to unite with us. It also exposes (((wolves in sheep clothing))).
You said: "While there may be "white priveledge" in this world. While there may be evil racists in this world. While there may be light skin egos and such, those who enjoy the priveledge are now SUFFERING from it."
Most Whites and near whites don't KNOW that they are suffering, they believe things can be solved within their own mindset. Those who are AWARE that they are suffering need to KNOW the reason. These difficult issues are also about explaining that. They can learn why they are uncomfortable and the effects of their excesses on others. Then they should learn to humble and let those who are most receptive to the excesses/abuses in the system teach them about it. They really should not just jump from benefiting from undeserved privileges to feel they can automatically claim common suffering with the victims of their abuses. After doing this they then try to dictate to those who FELT IT the most. This is continuing the abuse based on the same undeserved privileges.
