I hope we do not have to go over the nature of these Boards, which was well spoken about and published. No one ever stopped different views on Rasta or Rastafari from being reasoned here. I disagreed with your comments and attempt to trivialize this reasoning.
Is repatriation to Africa a 'special' kind of repatriation when it involves Rasta? Maybe to some because to them it includes the missionary component, but I know other Rastas who are quite different.
How is it now 'not Rasta' to talk about Africa as a whole?
Wasn't it Bob Marley who sang 'Africa Unite'?
Who really is trying to perpetuate divisiveness, especially among Africans?
Are you now saying it is not appropriate on a Rasta board to talk about all African issues, and ones are 'not Rasta' if they do?
I am sure there are many Rasta boards available, maybe you would feel happier there, and then you would not have to be made uncomfortable by all these pesky pro-Blacks, Blacks.
I hope the rest of the readers on this board take note of your post and gain an appreciation for the concern Blacks have shown over this issue. Leave it to some whites, and the only "Africa" which is of any concern is a romanticized 'Ethiopia'.
