A white person doesnīt have to ask anybody to be Rasta, seen? Jah calls I n I from all Nations.
Yes many see(or use) Rasta as something "Black Nationalist"... like BPP or so... I have nothing against that, but respect when not all Idren agree with that.
If I want BPP then I go to the BPP, if you know what I mean.... but Rasta TO ME is more and different.... it is divine and Iternal...
It is not a colour doctrine.... and when I read the bible, then I see that it is even not ONLY African.... just because I see Rasta African does not mean, that nobody on earth is allowed to see it different.
Iman respect EVERYBODY as a Rastafarian who follows true Ras TafarI... this is what makes a Rastafarian! HIM had many sides, there was the African Unity side.... but also the biblical side.... a side for everybody on earth... seen?
So I would love to see here more respect.
Maybe I n I donīt check the important things going on.... when we always waste time on fighting and quarreling eachother.
Everybody has the right to follow Ras TafarI as one see it right... and I n I should never judge...
As Iman see RasTafarI from the Ethiopian few.... not from a pan african one... so I see Rasta different, but though I have the highest respect for my pan african bredren... and I hope those who have different views can expect the same respect.
