ANCIENT YOUTH wrote"Ras Adam, I completely do not see this as a non-issue. What you've said concerning hard core REAL RASTAS that happen to be caucasoids, that I can accept, but there are alot of rich hippies going there also. As long as the white bwoys are working for the welfare of Ithiopia ...nuff raspect! "
I can see that whats a non issue to one is a huge issue to a next.
I stand by my assertion that an issue that is so small (1, maybe a few other,whites on the land and I dont see a big herd heading there)that TO ME
seems that it's a non issue (IN MY OPINION).
If the issue was semantics and you want to call whites moving home to Africa "resettlement" or some other word fine call it what you will.
i don't have the latin, but i am guessing the word has something to do with rejoining the fatherland (pater) and Ethiopia is Rastafari Childrens Fathers land so that's where we would repatriate to no matter ones melanin content.
In terms of the word hippy i see slung around here, i dont really see lots of hippies moving to Ethiopia. Some hippies go to Afrika in the peace corps etc.. and some may visit Ethiopia and support the local economy with their stay and they are appreciated. Folks on the land are building hotels and encouraging both visitors and settlers. a
