First, Bob Marley's father was Caucasian, he is a very influential person for the Rastafarian movement. Second, Ras Tafari spoke specifically AGAINST racism as a WHOLE. The person replying to you is probably Nyahbingi or Bobo Ashanti. I believe that because i have studied Rastafari 3 1/2yrs and i studied ALL the orders. In the beginning those orders did actively speak against white people. Babylon refers to the political and social downpressing of africans (black people). For you to ask someone else for acceptance is only solidifying his opinion of you, being a weak minded baldhead. JAH lies within you and only you. Rastafarian Enlightenment begins with you. As long as you Devote yourself wholly to HIM, There is NO ONE who can take it from you or disapprove of you. Having a relationship with HIM is YOUR JOURNEY. Yours. yours alone. Non-white people are very cautious with white people, and it is overstood. My ancestors make me ashamed to consider myself white. but i am and the only way to over-shadow what they have done to the rest of the world is to START within myself and be a loving and overstanding individual who keeps JAH in my heart. My advice to you is READ, READ, READ, MEDITATE, READ, AND PRAY. If Rasta is right for you He will let you know. If you already have found the signs then there is nothing left to wonder or ask except for DIRECTION. I hope this helps you. From the Tribe of Levi, Tegan
