This is your statement:
"the Ethiopian country, as you probably well know, is mostly Christian (one of the first kingdoms to practice Christianity and accept it "officially", as well as one of the oldest Hebrew groups), Muslim, and Indigenous Ways, so to say that Rastas are going to a majority-biblical African country with their own thing and colonizing with biblical religion is false"--givin_thanx
I am at a loss to see how you have derived this statement from anything that I have said.I rather suspect that through your own misunderstanding of my post, you made up your own thing and then disagreed with yourself. Maybe you should read my comments again.
This was my post:
"I wonder how many people know that this land at Shashamene is colonized by repatriated Jamaicans? And the land which he speaks of and the schools which he feels that Africans should support are rooted in Christian Rastafarian principles taught to these families who have chosen to move back to Ethiopia. As far as I am concerned there is no way that I will support a group of people who choose of their own accord to go somewhere and then want others to help them live a lifestyle that they have chosen, especially not over indigenous Africans with their indigenous beliefs, religions, practices and projects. A Christianized Rasta colony is to be the model for African people to discuss real repatriation?? And this is what you feel we should focus on while ignoring the inherent racism,cultural discrimination therein? Well you have to be a kind of crazy person.
Ras adam and crew seem to feel, like so many internet hippie white rastas that Africa is Ethiopia and that this whole concept of repatriation is rooted soley in repatriating as part of some Zionist religious struggle to Ethiopia. Well maybe they should all read a bit of history and understand the real concept of Repatriation. I wonder if they would be so willing to repatriate and build schools in the Congo, in Ghana, in Mozambique, in Kenya? "-- Yan
