In Response To: Re: whites + repatriation (iyah360)
Mi try fi mek it a general posting since mi feel like INI hab so much ting fi say, epecially bout whites, CONcerning complacency of whites an di need fi teach dem. Yes I, great Rastafari African Bredrin, deh is allways room fi each one to teach one, but mi hab a next saying..mi hear it nuff times inna dis hear country...."say what you mean, but dont say it mean". INI are of ONE seeking soul, spirit..or some of di Bredrin are. Mi talk bout Black man as well as di whites, pon dis board, nuh true? I woman sight dis board fi a likkle while, an it seems to I dat some of di Bredrin hear are coming from a heartical, spiritual reasoning an some of di Bredrin come hear from a JUSTICE reasoning...NEITHER IS WRONG, NEITHER ONE CYA STAND FIRM PON ITS OWN, dat is I opinion still. Ones who feel deh is a remark which enspouses racism, prejuidice and injustice should confront ones who ither speak it intentionally or unintentionally but still, deh is no reason to come out from yuh bag as a pit viper, yuh seeit? Why is it dat ones pon di board, an I self included is so SUSEPTIBLE to treating one anaddah so easily even whan INI fighting all sorts of battles every day, in dis hear Babylon. Jus becuz mi experience it more, or less den a next bredrin, or sistren, doent mean I experience is invalid in ither case, nuh true? An if mi nuh sight it now, WHO is to seh, mi nuh SIGHT IT LATER..but wid di words of scorn, no one will SEE, SINce all INI will REALeyes is di scornfull words, missing di entire point of reasonmant. I sight it even in INI reasoning upon spiritual matters Iyah!!!! Dem fi scorn I woman since dem overstan mi trod, dem fi DISraspeck I woman nuff times an at times it hurt I woman, despite di fact dat it is jus a likkle dibby dibby computer message board, but deh is times mi feel like mi know yuh MORESO den jus a board poster seen? I woman will ask ones to even stretch dis alignmant to even kansider ones as a part of INI fambly..an in I fambly deh is many faces, many colours, many thoughts, many beleifs, an much LOVE wid out regard to individual works, it is called UNCONDITIONAL LOVE in INI fambly..yes I alla we still bawl 'a lie yuh tell' to ones, but come back to talk it out, wid raspeck an true kancern fi di Idren dem..NOT jus to 'proof' dem or epecilly not to HURT dem..if yuh gwan use a RASTAFARI wordsound like 'blaze Fiyah' fi purification, den yuh should allso be able to use, even in di same conversation, a next RASTAFARI wordsound, 'INITY, AN HARAMBE'(especilly if yuh an African) IF yuh whan further di group yuh wid nuh true? Instead of asking ones to leave di group, or jumping all over a next bredrin or sistren, who is part of di group, to what ever dem level dem at, ones might try to ENCOURAGE, IN LOVE...it is jus dat right hear now, mi nuh see much love, or INITY amongst di BREDRIN DEM, an it is such a shame. Onno dont sight di benefit of Inity under di same umbrella, human race, not black race an white race..teaching or encouraging in love is EFFECTIVE, POSITIVE while ANGER, HURT, AN POISON IS A DISTRUCTIVE FORCE AMONGST DI BREDRIN AN SISTREN, unless yuh nuh need fi be under di same umbrella, yuh sight? An if yuh dont Iyah, why not ither mek di point wid out wroth, or nuh bother wid it.
mi truly whan sight di board, I woman enjoy it, an learn from it, an allow I woman to express it..yuh know some bout I fambly, as I felt to share wid yuh all, but as far as being disraspeckted or talk down to ones, it is not correct no matter what colour di breddah is (or sistren) an ones pon di board are only human..I jus like alla we are guilty of harshness an being feisty at times, but if INI could realeyes it an move on wid positivity, it would be betta, eh?
it is love mi seek, an mi know seh I woman felt it hear before
in His Light an Love
