Some ARE confused? Or some WERE AND STILL ARE confused? Haile Selassie I came from Ethiopia, the country, as defined by its primarily traditional borders, even back to the day that the Greeks used Ethiopia to describe the whole of Africa as far as they knew it, as well as the Rastafari Elders of today. Yet did not these same Elders Sight Haile Selassie I IN ETHIOPIA as King of Kings and Lord of Lords, Christos in this Manifestation? So even in strict historical context, these said Elders fought and worked for repartriation to Ethiopia, the Land of the King, the Land of Christos? The land of the Arc?
So were the Elders of Rastafari confused? And are some still now?
