Sorry I failed to answer the second part of your question. In retrospect to the Jews, Muslims, and Christians, I feel that Rastafarian families, do infact deserve the same fair treatment in the work place, and in instituions of learning, such as a child's development through elementary school to graduation.
This is the movement to organzie Rastafari, so that we can no longer be subjected to hate, all do to the fact that we lack religious protection under the law.
As a Rasta yourself, how do you feel being discriminated against in the workplace, and having your children turned down from entering school? Yet Jewish kids, Muslim kids, and Christian kids get a free unharrassed pass through the educational system.
What are your thought on this?
