Title: About Rastafari people who have no Dark Skin
Post by: Roots Brasil on November 18, 2009, 10:55:41 PM
Well I had been experiencing on my own , the discrimination , that brainwashed europeans , had made upon I and I , that arent from Jamaica, specially if we are not black skin tone ... They say we are fake rasta.
I had also with my years of study figured out that the only mansion tough rastafari that openly allow we white ppl , and other races , to be called bredrin and etc , that is the 12 tribes.
Well ... I wanna hear other ppl opinion about if we go trying to be into a rastafarian community without being black , on other mensions not being 12 tribes . if we should face racism ... pre concepts ... and stuff ..
Im not black nor white , Im latino ... like bob marley black mother and white father.
Been practicing Haile Selassie I way of live since my 14 years old ...
I would like to know about your opinion on this things ....
White ppl cant be rastafarians ?
Black ppl discriminate us if we try to live rastafari way ?
Is rastafari culture a mere skin tone philosophie , ore it is a global revolution against the babylon and it dirty way of living ?
I claim all rastafarians here for this reasoning about this serious subject...
So ... Jah Ras Tafari that is Haile Selassie I the Almighty is a Jah only for the black ppl ?
Ore He is a sign of the Lion and the Holy Teocracy ? To over the governement of the devil upon earth and stabilish Jah kingdom ?
Ore he is the King of a prophecy made only for the blacks to return for Africa?
Africa and the city that Haile Selassie reserved for rastafarians , are only for black people ? Ore it will be a city for all revolutionary warriors ? A new city of sharing things , do good , and love and inity ?
James "Jah Lightening" Campbell
James was born in the mid 1920's on the northwest coast of the island called Jamaica. He spent his childhood in the rural hills of Hanover Parish near the small village of Cascade. Life there in the early days of the twentieth century was simple. They had no electricity, no running water, no telephone and no motor car. The little money his family lived on was made raising goats and growing yams. With six boys and six girls to feed and care for, James' mother and father were extremely hard working people. Some of his brothers and sisters were able to attend the one room school house down in the village, but James loved to spend his time with his 'old man', farming and caring for the goat herd.

While James' father had no formal education, his mother could read and every evening was spent together with Mom reading from the daily newspaper and her bible. In this way he became very well informed about the current issues of the country and he learned the bible quite thoroughly. He never learned to read or write but this family based education served him greatly throughout his life.

As a young man James tried a variety of jobs, finally landing a maintenance position at the small but growing airport in the city of Montego Bay. His family and friends were very happy for him, as work there was quite difficult to secure. He became a hero one evening when a Columbian airplane crashed at the airport. While pieces of the airplane lay scattered and burning on the runway, James risked his own life, disregarding the flames and recovering as many passengers as possible.
His awareness of Rastafari became more and more powerful in those early days. As he meditated upon the reasonings of Brethren and Sistren around him, he gained a fuller and fuller 'overstanding' and embraced Rasta as the Righteous Way. He saw the fullness of the dreadlocks and stopped shaving and trimming his hair. The manager of the airport called him in to the office and explained that the managment could not tolerate the unshaven appearance of any employee, so he must tidy himself up. To this James replied, "I prefer Life over silver and gold, thank you very much!" He walked out of the airport, never to return.
He took his few possessions and moved back into the hills of his childhood. His sisters and brothers were appalled that he would leave his good job in the city due to his devotion to the "crazy" Rastafari. None of them would take him in or help him, so he stayed in a small cave until another Rasta heard of his plight and came to his aid. Together they built a small but comfortable two room bamboo "gates", where he lived for many years.
Living life as a Rastaman was not an easy thing. In those days Rastas were looked upon as "dirty, nasty, bug-hair Rastas!" "Them Crazies!" There was constant persecution and tribulation placed upon them. Most often by the police and government. Because of the fear and superstition of the people in the surrounding communities, James was continuously harrassed. Some were even known to faint at the sight of him! The prevailing attitude was that no sane man would choose to keep himself "untidy" and go off and live in a dirt floor, grass house, out in the bush! And James was not a silent, timid individual. When he saw an injustice happening, he would intervene and do his best to stop it with words of power and truth! For this he was arrested and beaten many times. Never was he violent, but his words carried strength and force, and the community did not appreciate his honesty.
There was the time he tried to save the huge mango tree on the side of the road leading into the bush land. It was about to be chopped down and he insisted that no one should destroy the tree that offered food and shade to the travelers... the tree that harmed no one and was in no ones way. They beat him and thought that they had killed him. Even brought him down to the morgue, known as the 'dead house'. But, to everyones amazement, he regained consciousness, stood up and walked out of the building and forwarded to his little bamboo gates.
And then there were the times that people would simply lie to the police about him, saying he had stolen a goat or robbed their field, just to try and get rid of him. He was well aware that fear can make people do many wicked things, and never sought any revenge on those that persecuted him. "Jah be the rightful judge!" he allways said.
James "Jah Lightening" Campbell

About Zion (that will be in Africa TOO)

[1] The wilderness and the solitary place shall be glad for them; and the desert shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose.
[2] It shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice even with joy and singing: the glory of Lebanon shall be given unto it, the excellency of Carmel and Sharon, they shall see the glory of the LORD, and the excellency of our God.
[3] Strengthen ye the weak hands, and confirm the feeble knees.
[4] Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come with vengeance, even God with a recompence; he will come and save you.
[5] Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped.
[6] Then shall the lame man leap as an hart, and the tongue of the dumb sing: for in the wilderness shall waters break out, and streams in the desert.
[7] And the parched ground shall become a pool, and the thirsty land springs of water: in the habitation of dragons, where each lay, shall be grass with reeds and rushes.
[8] And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein.
[9] No lion shall be there, nor any ravenous beast shall go up thereon, it shall not be found there; but the redeemed shall walk there:
[10] And the ransomed of the LORD shall return, and come to Zion with songs and everlasting joy upon their heads: they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.

I hope Im not offending nobody being so explicit ..........

I wanna everybody to know that we have to unite ....

Bob Marley gonne and done music to spread Rastafari Universally ...


By the way .............................

I think in my point of view that when the elders use the term WHITE SYSTEM it does not refer to a skin tone only , it refers to a attitude that had origin on clear skin tone , european races ...

And that WHITE SYSTEM is a attitude not a skin tone , the attitude of opression , slavery , pride , ambition , lack of hospitality , lack of feelings ...

Through Black Race we can see that Black People are very good on communication and showing their feelings both on their speech and face . The very opposite of the european ........ behaviour ....

Its natural for a Black person the hospitaly and the warmth of the feelings that melt their hearts with love ...........................

Thats through this and others concepts that I realize that Black Race , came first , and White Race , after...

Im not dark skin tone ... But I never had a white mentality ..................................................................................... not that I own explanations to no one but ... Im just looking for acceptance and love ... by the black rastafarians .................. thats the truth ...............

In my point of view ....... Everybody who is rebel and against the system , isnt WHITE at all ...

Blessings from Jah ! Love in  I and I Heart !

May we find Unity and Love ...
And Peace , Serenity , Meekness ... through our way of life

All my respect to beloved Tyehimba, yan, leslie

and to every reader of the forum !

Send me your opinions

Post by: kendalldj on November 21, 2009, 04:11:37 PM
Brother you are speaking to my soul....  You are speaking from your soul....  My heart is pained brother.  Yes it is love i seek.  I want your love.  I want the Black Rasta's love.  I want it!  I am white.  My roots are in the Irish Roman Catholics, among many other things.  I find rasta when I am 18.  This is only two years ago.  It change I an I life!  I see I an I!  my poor heart.  It is broken.  Mankind is so divided.  But all I crave is to love.  For I love Jah.  LOVE JAH!  and when I am infatuated with this love, it is hard to hold it in.  Its near impossible.  I spill and I spill love out onto my family.  On to strangers.  On to Heathans.  On to unbelievers and ignorant arrogant fools.  I love them not for the front they possess.  I love them not for their HIGH Heads, but for their very beating hearts.  We are human!  We shall not repress our love for our human brothers and sisters.  We are JAH people.  Yes we are Rastafari.  We are Jesus People.  We prophesy.  We live for love and we shall die for love.  It is not our choice, it is the All-mightys'. 

Your post speaks to my heart because you wrote it with love.  Yes we all want to be accepted.  But it seems first we must accept each and every human with their flaws to see how God makes us all so different.  We must have faith in humanity.  We must have faith in the heart.  It is Gods Love that keeps my heart beating today.  This alone keeps me alive... Huh...  So it seems so will it be.

(excerpts from: DREAD the Rastafarians of Jamaica, interviews by Joseph Owens):

Life for the brethren is an unbroken continuity, a force that has been "from ever since" and which shall be "forever-more."  Ever-living life resides in any man who knows righteousness:  "The life in me is a life that was from ever since, which comes through I forefathers for the betterment of all man who know righteousness." (Catman).  The Rastaman is not created to "exhist", but to live to the fullness of life: "Anything that is existing only exists for a while.  But anything that live live forever.  For life is the creative power that even keep something to exist.  (Blackheart).

Death for the Rastafarians is above all the wages of sin, the destructive power which will annihilate those who fight against the forces of life.  Those who have faithfully served Jah will succeed in finding ever-living life, but those who fail in their service will fade away into the forgetfulness of death.  (Teddy)

These are some Rastafari beliefs that inspire me to think myself.  Each person is different.  Each mind is different.  But Jah remains. 
Yes I call myself Rasta!  I believe in the divinity of mankind.  I believe in the divinity of Jesus Christ.  I believe in the divinity Of Haile Selassie I.  I believe in Love.  As i nurture these beliefs, my heart grows stronger. I believe in a God that knows the endless definition of love.  Though we humans may understand bits and pieces, it is God and God alone that knows and determines the way mankind progresses.  In Him we must have faith.  Ahh to be selfless.  That is the Goal.  I an I becoming I.  We can then see the world from the eyes of the Human race, instead of our self.  In this state we praise God as one human race.  We are who we are.  Time is.  I know I am not perfect.  I do not claim to be.  I only wish to be humbled in the eyes of the Lord.  i wish to speak from my heart and fear not.  For we are human beings.  The earth is ours to love and protect, to uphold the Law of Jah.  Let us come together in the name of love, and cleanse this planet of iniquity.  This means white man, Red man, African, Yellow man...  We are human!  Let us show these logical schemers how love can break every chain!  Let us break every chain I say!

Ecclesiastes 1
The words of the Preacher, the son of David, King in Jerusalem.
Vanity of vanities, says the Preacher,
Vanity of vanities!  All is vanity.
What does man gain by all the toil
at which he toils under the sun?
A generation goes, and a generation comes
but the earth remains forever.
The sun rises, and the sun goes down,
and hastens to the place where it rises.

The impermanence of life on earth....  Live for your soul.  Not all that glitters is gold.  And though the body may decompose, the soul knows.  Here's a poem i wrote this morning:

Dread not!
for the mind may think but knows love not
to find this love you just look in your heart. 
For love shall rule forevermore
no longer shall our brothers abhor.
Yes we are smart but bow down to love
and believe in God, who love He knows of
With our hearts as the key we find simplicity is the only means of salvation

For man who knows not
Why burden his lot?
For love he may know and may feel
With God as our Rock
we think and fret not
For the love that we give they cant steal.

 [smiley=2thumbsup.gif]so yah man!  I hear you.  We must not talk of Judgment for in our heads for there is beauty to behold in this life!
One man says he's rasta, but says you aint.  He be judgin you.  We know not of what is in our friends thoughts.  We only know our own thoughts.  So to tell a man he is not something that he claims to be is a ridiculous assumption of authority.  What a man says is between him and God, and if you feel hatred come off of him then be wary.  But if you disagree and feel hatred come from yourself...   Well I suggest you hold your tongue and humble yourself before God.  Our tongues bring forth much evil this is true... our tongue is like the rudder to our life, directing us.  If we hold our tongue we are allowed to have the waves direct us...  In this world of tongues flapping with little meaning the tongues of the righteous must be used carefully as instruments of God.  Let us offer thanks and praises to the Lord.  Let us all offer thanks and praises together.  We want to.  Let us....  Africa.  How I wish I could know and feel the heritage and splendor of Black Consciousness.  But alas in my walk of life I have much to learn.  But that is why I am here!  I seek soul salvation in the Lord.  My heart is strong and my mind is able.  I offer myself to the Lord.  Accept me as a human, not as a Black man or a white man, but as a human.  I am a soul warrior.  I want peace in my heart, as well as the hearts of others. Jah.

A friend of mine told me a story that was of African Heritage that he heard from a storyteller:

Basically There are two wolves inside you.  One who feeds off of hatred and One who feeds off of love.  The wolf that you feed grows stronger.

I think this site is a good place to find food for the wolf of Love.  Let our hearts prevail.

Obsessing with the oxymoron of white rasta:

Ras Teferi is Enlightenment which comes into a room of darkness, not in increments but in Oneness with the All, the Essence of all things created within the Iniverse.
As the argument rages over who can be Rasta and who cannot be Rasta, Ras Teferi still is. Four million years ago you were Ras Teferi, in this moment you are Ras Teferi. Now when we stand in relative reality we speak of the atrocities committed upon our race by those of another race who seeks an invitation into Rasta. It makes us angry and we want to give so many reasons why they cannot enter. But we must innerstand that we do not possess the keys to their redemption, we cannot lead them into the path of righteousness for anyone's namesake. That is their responsibility. The argument ends there.

Ras Teferi is observant and triumphant over ignorance, the Light Rays that guides us into the Ivine Laws of Maat. We must know them and Live them to the fullest. Ras Teferi is the Djed, the establishment of Ivine Leadership within I'n'I self and among I'n'I. Ras Teferi is Transition, that is consolidating the Lower Material Self with the Higher Spiritual Self, creating the Balance needed to actualize Right Action of Peace, Love and Inity

Again Ras Teferi is the Sun, Moon and Stars the Root of our Celestial origins. We came during the time when the Gods and Goddesses ruled supreme with the Supreme knowledge of Oneness, Peace, Love and Inity.

Haile Selassie I = An Ethiopian institution(relative reality)
Ras Teferi        = Creation(absolute reality)
Haile Selassie I = Limitations(relative reality)
Ras Teferi        = Expansion, Transformation(absolute reality)

The argument is done, the reasoning has begun, white Rasta is the oxymoron, the distraction from the New Creation.
The argument is done. Access Black Genius and make the uncommon connections.

Haile Selassie I is institutional
Ras Teferi is universal interconnectedness, interdependency, energy of Peace, Love and Inity.

.......but Ras Teferi also came to us (those with Endarkenment) after such inhumanity was born in slave dungeons and the dark bellies of the slave ships as they made their way thru the middle passage. And after such inhumanity many came in the spirit of our ancestors and pointed us in the direction of a bright light that shone from the East and one of them said "Up ye mighty race ye can accomplish what ye will" and we remained rebellious to such inhumanity. We developed a revolutionary spirit in synchronization with the spirit of Peace, Love and Inity. This became our redemption and resurrection after such inhumanity, where we regained our dignity. We shouted Khem Shekhem in the voice of revolutionarys and it became our new mantra/hekua.

We certainly needed the energy of Ras Teferi, Black Panther, UNIA, EWF, etc., after such inhumanity before we became numb in the numbers of casualties we experienced over the centuries of time and space in which our enemies never knew Maat. We stood watch as our weakest DNA's have inherited the resulting disfunctionality of such inhumanity and those of us whose memories prevailed have continued the rebellion from the dungeons to the plantations to this modern day colonization and we will not give in to the descendants of our former masters. There can be no invitation to the rebellion/revolution until trust is established from within I'n'I whom still suffer from such inhumanity. The disfunctionality is still present, the traumatic interruption is still present, we still need an adjustment to the personality after such inhumanity and we need time to do this.

Selassie I

Give I and I vision Love and Overstanding

Open I Eye so I and I can see the works of the Darkness and scape to the Light of Jah God

I dont finished reading your post you posted yet I just stopped on MAAT laws . I know about occultism , and even KABALISTS do allusion to Maat , the kabalists are people who work for satan to spread satanism on the media to spread satanism on the movies to spread satanism on the marketing to spread satanism on the science . Theres the pop type of kabala they say to the people to read and practice , and the real one that is secret in the secret society they have . Be always careful Rasta ........ DO-mt (m-asonry) embrace dont embrace any wind of doctrine that blow ... I already saw people on Rastafari I Livity claiming .... that the messiah name to stabilish the Theocracy will be THAMUZ. Thamuz is nothing more nothing less than the name .............. of ........ the ANTICHRIST . he is a demon ... SO MAAT is similar. Ma'at was also personified as a goddess regulating the stars, seasons, and the actions of both mortals and the deities, who set the order of the universe from chaos at the moment of creation. So Jah cant do Creation alone he need a egyptian goddess to regulate the stars ... etc ?
I just wanna you to pay attention on the following laws of the MAAT : (the last one specially)
1. I honor virtue
2. I benefit with gratitude
3. I am peaceful
4. I respect the property of others
5. I affirm that all life is sacred
6. I give offerings that are genuine
7. I live in truth
8. I regard all altars with respect
9. I speak with sincerity
10. I consume only my fair share
11. I offer words of good intent
12. I relate in peace
13. I honor animals with reverence
14. I can be trusted
15. I care for the earth
16. I keep my own council
17. I speak positively of others
18. I remain in balance with my emotions
19. I am trustful in my relationships
20. I hold purity in high esteem
21. I spread joy
22. I do the best I can
23. I communicate with compassion
24. I listen to opposing opinions
25. I create harmony
26. I invoke laughter
27. I am open to love in various forms
28. I am forgiving
29. I am kind
30. I act respectfully of others
31. I am accepting
32. I follow my inner guidance
33. I converse with awareness
34. I do good
35. I give blessings
36. I keep the waters pure
37. I speak with good intent
38. I praise the Goddess and the God
39. I am humble
40. I achieve with integrity
41. I advance through my own abilities
42. I embrace the All

YOU WILL EMBRACE ALL BROTHER ? you WILL EMBRACE THE ALL ? THE ALL dont include lucifer ? the flesh ? your pleasures ? etc ?

Just to remember that the people that are free masons .... the people that are from secret societies etc ....

they all embrace the worshiping of the sun ...... and the gods of the sun ...........

And fire burn

SELASSIE I is not a ethiopian institution ... you wanna lock Haile Selassie I to Ethiopia and to Africa not to the whole World ? its crazy. Its not relative absolutely is not relative .... Haile Selassie I is the stabilishment of the Divine Theocracy , a representation of the things that have to come , a man possesed many times by the Spirit of Christ ... Who is the sign and advent of the Divine Theocracy who will set the earth free from opression and captivity !

I also wanna use this moment to do a invitation to brother Sekhmet

Hi , I have nothing against you but I can see you are practicing idolatry . This names of the egypt pantheon of gods and godesses have nothing to do with Ras Tafari I .
How many times we will have to see the same thing happen ? Strange doctrines infiltrating into our minds ? Complicated studies and complicated names and complicated rules and complicated practices ? Why we would embrace so much complication   ? Why use so many complicated names ? Where is the Simplicity of Heart ? "oxymoron" of white rasta .... see what you think about me and brothers who arent black skin tone who practice rastafari culture , you dont have not a little of love on your heart ? (dont answer to me , answer to yourself) .
Everytime the New Age movement try to put more and more people inside and outside Rastafari Culture practicing their forms of self perfection, their forms of deification of the man , you are god , they say  , do what you want and everything shall be from the law , in the end you will receive the Enlightment aka Luci - Light Fer- Bearer .
Brother  I  also wanna use this moment to do a invitation to brother Sekhmet
For he to throw away his gods and goddesses and learn who Haile Selassie , and  Yahshua Ha Mashiach is . Learn who King David , learn who King Solomon , learn who Moses are . Why go to so much complicated forms of spirituality if you dont even fully understand a more simple message that is the biblical message ? Why dont you practice the Bible ? Through bible we can end all sufferation , and set ourselfs free from captivity . I and I Rastafari I wanna say we respect this brother Sekhmet and we truly love him , and thats why I invite him to trod the Real Path of Rastafari I using only the bible ... dont using the BOOK OF THE SECRETS OF ENOCH , NOR THE BOOK OF ADAM AND EVE , and not use a damn lie they wanna put among us . Only the Bible is enough . Read the Fruits of the Spirit in the New Testament Galatians 5:22 ... and practice it , no need no Ma'at ..... no need no Ra . No need no Osiris ... We no need to worship like the Easter Brighter Star of the Morning movement do ... !"The devil's greatest achievement was to convince everyone that it does not exist."
Baudelaire !  We dont need this satanism of worshiping Venus dont worship this al-Shaitan . We dont need this ...   Read the Fruits of the Spirit in the New Testament Galatians 5:22 and practice and you will end all suffering
    *  love (agape);
    * joy (chara);
    * peace (eirene);
    * patience (makrothumia);
    * kindness (chrestotes);
    * goodness (agathosune);
    * faithfulness (pistis);
    * gentleness (prautes);
    * self-control (egkrateia).
practice love 1 Corinthians 13,

    *  suffers long;
    * is kind;
    * does not envy (ou zeloo);
    * does not parade itself (ou perereupmai);
    * does not get 'puffed up' (ou phusioutai);
    * does not behave rudely (ouk askemonei);
    * is not provoked;
    * does not think evilly, nor rejoice in sin;
    * rejoices in the truth;
    * bears all things;
    * believes all things;
    * hopes all things;
    * endures all things.
[ "the fruit of righteousness is a tree of life" (an early example of 'fruit' to describe results)
It is holiness taking root in you. It is something you are, not just something you do or think ]

Jeremiah 6:18-19 (New International Version)

 18 Therefore hear, O nations;
       observe, O witnesses,
       what will happen to them.

 19 Hear, O earth:
       I am bringing disaster on this people,
       the fruit of their schemes,
       because they have not listened to my words
       and have rejected my law.

So lets sanctify brother ... and practice the Bible ... and that is to be Rastafari I .
TO be Rastafari I is to be HUMAN in it deepest meaning ever a real HUMAN with no artificiality of modification made by the system. A man living in the nature who God provides Food , Cloths and Wisdom . Humble yourself .
Peace , Love , Unity , Charity , Gentleness , Honesty , Sincerity and Integrety .

My deeeep deeeep deeeeeep feelings of Love for you Sekhmet

and for all this forum !

Peace !

Hope I had not offended you .

judge not... hmm i dont have words of knowledge to share, only words of love, or so i believe....  I respect the African people's choice to keep Rasta for themselves, but as time will tell you think your heaven but your livin in hell.  We all are living in hell.  We must march to zion as it is Gods will.  All races have a role to play.  The African role is a role of leadership and majesty.  I do not possess "Black Consciousness."  I respect my place on the earth as a white soul warrior.  I admire Rasta...  I only give my unending love and support for your cause and want to let you know that I am watching you Rastas with anticipation.  I am ready to do your bidding....  To a point of course.  My allegiance is to God.  I know in my heart as every one does, that the evil is inside us.  I fight the evil on the inside, and do not worry about the evil on the outside.  Rasta is soul food for me.  Rasta encourage my heart.  Rasta give me the courage to fight.  Rasta give me life and love through music.  Count Ossie.  Ali Farka Toure.  Oliver Mtukudzi. Bob Marley.  Damian, Stephen, Julian and Ziggy Marley.  Rasta feels good on my heart.  We live in this life.  I want justice and peace.  I want it and I have faith.  I have faith that peace and love exist and are right.  I want to be wild and free.  Of what i dream is reality.  I shall find this in this life.  So call yourself Rasta.  I will call myself Dillon.  I follow the teachings of one rastafari, and will continue to do so with my soul.  I feel oppressed.  I am a slave of America.  I am a slave to the Devil.  I owe him money.  He owes me my freedom and I will fight.  I will fight my whole life for what I believe is true.  And that is the people who bow down to God and dont look side to side to see who is bowing down but feels peace and love in their heart and brings it from their love of God into the world, by loving on people.  Love will prevail.

I honestly dont want to reason this much for I feel as if everyone hear will read this and think things of me.  Think nothing of me!  Please for I am searching for selflessness.  Think what you think of yourself.  do you hate me? do you love me? why?  I read peoples writings and i remove my tendency to judge and think only of myself.  I do not care if you hate me.  I love you for I love creation.  Black Consciousness may be un-obtainable to men of other colors, but Rastafari?  I believe in the divinity of mankind.  I believe in the divinity of Sellasie, and I bow down to divinity.  Lord, I am yours.  Do with me as you will.  I believe you will guide me to my freedom.

We cant help loving black people!  You people are rich in culture, a window into the past man.  What you did to american music is phenomenal!  Some black people are being assimilated into the culture of fear, America.  Claim your brothers back!  And lead.  Progress!  I offer words of encouragement I hope.  I believe in you.  Believe in me.  Just because I am white does not mean I am ignorant.  It does not mean I am incapable of anything.  I am Human.  I am Jungle Warrior.  I am a freedom fighter.  The revolution begins in the heart.  Let it consume you.  Yes there is much healing to be done.  But it will be done!  And when the times are right the righteous will stand together.  Dream of that time.  Our dreams will become reality.  Look not to the past for guidence, look to your heart, and believe you have to power to move mountains.  Cause we all do.  A spiritual mountain stands in our way.  If we move it we find love.  

All I wanna be is wild and free
and your gift unto me
of what i dream i see
is reality

All i wanna know is will this love grow?
And you say yes my son,
what is done is done,
and now you live in me!

Praise God for creation
Praise God and he set you free
Praise God for Creation
and you shall find peace

All i want to feel
is comfortable and real
yes and a little love
from above
sets me free!

I write this song.  I sing this song.  The sounds I make are a gift from God, for I praise him with my soul and with my lips.  I love!!
I encourage you to do the same.  Whoever you may be.  In your heart become familiar with the fealing of love, and believe that this feeling is the path to freedom,  I am following this feeling and the weight of the world is being shed from my shoulders.

I do not know my role in this life, but i trust in God.  I will continue to post on these forums,  But will refrain from participating in "Black Consciousness?"  I am a white man.  I am a man fashioned after his heart.  HE beats hard in my chest.  I have no choice but to listen, and when i feel love everything is ok.  When i do not I am afraid my heart will beat right out of my chest, and so I am human of love.  It is my medicine.  Love heals all problems I have.  What do I love?  The beauty of JAH Creation.  The intense complexities of the human mind.  I love thinking about the future and how I believe love will prevail.  I love how God loves ME for ME.  He loves who I am on the inside.  I believe JAH loves all his creation in this way.  He created us to be who we are.  He did not mess us up.  He did not make us, destined to fail.  He put in our heart and mind what he saw fit for us.  He knows me and he knows you.  When we offer praises he returns love and tells us in all sincerity what we must do to obtain tranquility.  Tell your friend to stop doing drugs.  Tell your father to stop harassing your mother.  Stand up for your rights!  Stand up for the rights of mankind!  Jah wants peace and love for all.

Do you want white people to suffer for what we've done?  Is this feeling justified?  Does Jah want thsi generation who was born into oblivious hatred of themselves to suffer?  or does he want us to break free from the injustice that has burdended our hearts and souls for thousand of years.  Though we may deserve to suffer.  We do suffer.  He wants us to break through.  We need your help Rasta!  Spiritually.  Allow us our freedom!  To love you.  Love us!! not for our history.  Not for our fear of you.  See through our fear.  Every person is different and special and beautiful.  IF you love you will see.  Every human loves to be loved.  Every human loves to act in love.  Love makes the heart beat with Godly Pleasure.  Progression.  Forgiveness.  If your heart is not ready I understand.  I truly do.  But think about how you want your heart to be ready.  

Do you picture Zion with all Black people?  Does this make you feel guilty?  Does it fuel your HATRED of white people?  

I am just speculating.  Time will tell...  I have faith in love.  I am not asking for your help to help me, I speak for the glory of the Human race to move forward.  Hmm.  See i dont even know if this is worth speaking.  I will find my way.  As you will find yours.  I am only here because I love Rasta Consciousness.  I am only 20 years old, but I will grow with Rasta in my heart, whether I am an accepted member of this group or not.  Haile Selassie Speaks to ME.  He may speak to your Black Consciousness and I know not what he says to you.  He speaks to me of divine authority.  And I salute him.  I press my hands, my forhead, my knees to the dirt and I humble myself before the lord.  I love life.  I love JAH.  JAH!  I feel it in my heart and i love.  IRIE.  The Great Spirit, The Creator.  I believe.  Justice.  Peace love.  It will come in Time.  We must be patient.  We must not be consumed by hatred.  Only love of creation.  We live and we die.  Would you rather be wise but know not of love??

What is simply is.

I did not mean to post such a long response.  I wish I could sit and listen to True Black African Rastas reason in person.  This is a holy practice.  I would love to converse.  I plan to visit Jamaica in the future.  This heart is crying for reality.  Peace and love Rastas.  From now on I am not Rasta.  I am not Christian.  I am merely Dillon.  I may stand by you, for i fight for the freedom of mankind.  But I fight for my own hearts freedom.  I speak for myself and I answer only to God.  I am the puppet of no man.  I am the spokesman for no group.  I am a member of the Human Race.  I am a believer in God.  May Jah bring peace and love and inity to this world.  Humans... we will progress.

Thy kingdom come
Thy will be done
on earth as it is in Heaven

The children of the oppressor knows well the art of deflection very well. Centuries of time and space was given to perfect this art. We overs this but still our ancestors allowed us the required shift in consciousness and a realignment of how we know to weather this deflection. We know the idea was for them to continue teaching us of our story with such detachment that we couldn't know or overstand the deception. Many of I'n'I DNAs still suffer from this but those of us who still walk in the Light Rays of Ras Teferi, the iriginal Cosmology will prevail.

Many of the oppressors children need to argue their contemporary position, to established their right to inclusion, but simply lacking in the energy of their own redemption. Simply lacking the energy to let their own be aware of the catastrophic shift in consciousness created by the traumatic interruption sustained in the slave dungeons, the dark bellies of the slave ships, on the plantations and now in this modern day colonization. Instead there is still violations of our villages, with missionaries still trying to school us away from the ancient position, the Cosmology of our ancients established upon Maat, Aset and Asar. All these represented in "Haile Selassie I" for those of us endarkened enough to see. Black genius arise!!!

"The RAs Teferi movement has revolutionised world consciousness radically since the 60's, has been the most forceful universal movement towards peace and righteousness in modern times, yet internally we seem beset and bogged down by squabbling and in-fighting and non-realisation of the monumental changes that we have brought about on the planet - in equal rights and justice, in global health, in international morality, in peace and reconciliation among individuals, families, communities and nations. We seem to be more mesmerised by the deviousness of the workers of outoquity than by our own resounding Triumph that has aligned the powers of Nature and the springs of Iration in our behalf, that has beaten their battleaxes and neutralised their bombs and brought all their machinations to bow under the prevailing dominion of Righteousman/woman. We seem unable to credit the outcome of our own prayers and hopes for the day of Revalation when all that was hidden comes to light, where the crash and the crunch are signs and symptoms of root and branch change, where the once mighty powers are everyday discredited and their rulership over the minds of millions declines and disintegrates daily. We speak of the triumph but we seem unable to behold and grasp the Victory. WE prophesied the fall of Babylon, but we seem to doubt the reality when it comes to pass. We are moved more by the propoganda of the wicked than by the works of Majesty that cover the earth from sea to sea and from the rivers to the ends of the earth." - RAs Baku.

Herein lies what I'n'I do every second of resisting and fighting against the system of oppression. Sending out that eternal vibes of righteousness, goodness, Peace, Love and Inity but never forgetting who are our enemies after such inhumanity.

peace and hotep,

Roots Brasil.

when you state:

"Im not black nor white , Im latino",

according to White People, a non-white parent makes one not white unless the White Supremacist amend 'color codes' ["Skin"] or unless the 'passing' non-white child becomes an "Imitation Of Life". 

Roots Brasil, what became of your African/Black/non-White neighbors in  Argentina? what happened to the Afro Argentine.........

"Other researchers have argued that there was a deliberate policy of genocide against the Afro Argentinian, which was openly expressed by many Euro-Argentines as Domingo F. Sarmiento and was probably implemented by using repressive policies during epidemics and wars as a tool of mass destruction."..... (

there are only two ways to practice racism:

Deception or Violence

If you go find White people and ask them questions about race (Are you a White person, What is a White person...) guess what?

suddenly you have a real hard time finding a White person.

Here are some of the answers you get from the critical question.

Are you a White person?

\"I think I might be\"

\" Thats a hard question to answer\"

\"Im white skinned\"

\"not in that way\"

\"I have no Dark Skin"\..........

Now, is that a \"scientific analysis\"?

Or deception?

Roots Brasil, try asking the critical question to 10 different people in a row.

please remember that a latino may be a member of the Latin Church; a Roman Catholic, or the term Latino despite its increasing popularity is still highly debated among those who are called by the name.  Latin America is made up of around 20 nations that have different histories, traditions, constitutions, and backgrounds. The term Latino has a connotation towards a single European origin group that is Latino from the Latin language, which does not represent all people from Latin America. There are many so called Latino people who are, for example, of Jewish ancestry. Also, the term Latino tends to imply a monolithic group. People from Latin America represent many religious groups and not just Catholics or Christian, as well as many racial groups and mixtures. Another aspect of diversity within this group is their heterogeneous immigration history. Also, the term Latino may express a confusion about those who, despite having Latino names, do not identify with the culture from their original home countries, are multigenerational descendants from immigrants from Latin America, do not speak or understand Spanish or Portuguese, and have never been to Latin America; in fact, some so-called Latinos were present in the US before the US came to be the country as it is known today. This heterogeneity in the Latino community makes the name highly debated........

Roots Brasil, it would seem that you can not determine whether or not White People classified you as White or non/not White.  Most white people hate Black people. The reason that most white people hate Black people is because whites are not black people.


1.) The white race

2.) a word-concept tool CREATED and USED  (knowingly and/or unknowingly) BY WHITES (europeans/whites and white supremacists/racists)  and subsequently propagated (knowingly and/or unknowingly) by non-white victims of the white supremacy system.

3.) The only race is the white race. The creation of race is a white compensation. No people, other than white people, created or wield the race tool concept with authority.

Ya know, this is really disappointing... I really can't believe we're still talkin about this bullshit as a faith. it's like this; you either follow and accept the Ivinity of Our Father, His Imperial Majesty, or you do not. PERIOD!!! You either know what HE personally says on the matter and accept it or you do NOT! PERIOD!!! you cant claim to follow a Man, but not know what He Says on the issues that affect your life! This is abject ignorance. FATHER SAYS "Human Beings are EXACTLY THE SAME, regardless of the color of their skin." P E R I O D !!! Yeah I'm white; been a Rasta since i saw bad brains in 86! i was 15 & i knew at that moment that what those guys were talkin about was truth! let me be more specific about my skin's coloring; it's mostly white, except for the big black Lion of Judah on my arm, the Star of David on my other arm, and the Ge'ez for Haile Selassie I in my forehead. did i mention that I'm white? It should NOT MATTER!!!  Anybody who wants to hate on me cuz I'm white, please go for it. Cuz I hate rascists; been fighting skinheads in Dallas Texas since 1985!!! just remember, if you hate on me cuz I'm white, you ain't hurtin my feelings; you're in opposition to His Majesty's teachings. suit yourself. LOL!!!  Protection & Guidance Ya'll, bobby

and just for clarification, the white "race" is a social construct, not based in any scientific fact or theory. Treason to "whiteness" is loyalty to humanity. i would suggest you read "How the Irish Became White," by Noel Ignatiev. Jah Love, bp

Greetings Bobbypyn
I get the impression that you are missing something. I don't feel that you've spent enough time reading through these boards and absorbing the different reasonings. I suggest you take more time to do so, whilst trying to lessen your defensiveness.
I would also ask you: do you think any pope was a good man? Because Haile Selassie is on record praising the pope at the time (and JFK... and Mao Zedong... none of whom I think were really that "good" of people). Are we to go by each and every thing H.I.M. ever said? Didn't H.I.M. also say "I will be replaced by the coming generations".... in other words, take what guidance you can from I, but please THINK FOR YOURSELF? (Yashua is quoted saying much the same thing in John Ch 14 if my memory serves).
There are many legitimate reasons why Black people may be suspicious of or dislike white people. Try putting yourself in the next man's shoes!
BTW... I agree with H.I.M.'s statement that you quote... and I am also a huge Bad Brains fan. I hear there's supposed to be a documentary coming out about them, have ya heard anything about that?
I recommend going through the section called "Essential Reasonings" somewhere on this or the associated sites, I can't remember exactly where it is right now, seek and you shall find.
Take a week or so and read through em properly and then come forward and comment and see if your opinion may have changed.
Respect for fighting them racist boneheads.
PS Because this site is associated with the Nubian School that some of the admin help to run in Trinidad, and because some youths and their parents may object to certain words, they do ask that people refrain from swearing (re your use of "b.s.")

I wasn't aware of the possibility of children reading that; excuse my language; but I stand behind every other word. Was there a good pope? yea. John Paul the First. anti-masonic. vatican murdered him. Kennedy was a good man. Father respected and liked the man, so i don't care what anybody else says. Mao? take him or leave him; i associate myself with anarcho-syndicalism politically, leading to Divine Theocracy. Plaease allow me to clarify my previous statements: Do Black people have a genuine cause for concern and even anger for europeans? Without a doubt. I have friends in the Nation of Islam; i understand the issues. But I n I are called to a higher overstanding than any other Faith on the earth. am i shameful of the actions of other europeans? undoubtedly. but if you wanna split hairs; none of my ancestry ever oppressed anybody; I'm Irish and i despise the british. as do all irishmen... almost as much as Native Americans do!!! My point is this; any who would discourage another from the Truth of Rastafari due to the color of skin is not of Jah. It just angers me to think that some poor white kid could come here looking for guidance and be rebuked because of his genetic misfortune of being "fair skinned" by a cruel trick of fate. I used to BE that little kid. His Majesty and I now have a personal relationship (laugh all you want; I know the names of His beloved little dogs. Do YOU!?! sorry but i just had to gloat a little bit...) so I don't need confirmation or acceptance from any other man. My Father's Love & Acceptance suffices just fine, thank you very much, but had I been discouraged from the Truth at a tender age I may never have known His Love. Oh and Dad says to stop being mean to homosexuals; He loves THEM too (hey, i was shocked too!) Protection & Guidance, bobby

Hail Up
Just a brief comment as I don't have long on the computer tonight.
I too am an anarchist politically speaking; I too have no problem with homosexuals and was never "mean" to them (my mum taught me better and so did some of the Rastas in my family who do not share the common prejudices); I too support militant action against racists. And of course as I said, I love the Bad Brains, so we definitely have quite a bit in common.
We also have some things not in common apparently. I don't think Black people should ever be censoring themselves or biting their tongue out of concern for what white people might think, or that they might hurt their feelings. If some statements make some white people uncomfortable that is no problem to I... deal with it! Rasta supposed to be tough, not a weakling, so you have to take the heat or get out of the kitchen... those who take the heat and stay in the kitchen may be rewarded with a place at the dining table and a portion of the ital... those who can't, well, a chain is ony as strong as the weakest link so we don't really need weak chains anyway.
Most Rastas are quite polite and welcoming of white people and others anyway once they demonstrate humbleness (which doesn't mean kissing butt... it means just that, humbleness).
Also, bear in mind that this section of the website is called AFRICA speaks; it is not exclusively for Rastas and not all the people posting the comments you probably object to are Rastas (some are even hostile to Rasta).
Regarding Sekhmet who you asked a question of (not sure if she's still around to reply); I didn't get any sense of so called "reverse racism" or whatever from her posts. What does "white" mean anyway? Re-read the first post she made in that section.

I do know the names of some of Kedamawe Haile Selassie I's pets, but I really don't think H.I.M. cares if people do or not. H.I.M. never demanded personality-cult type worship, quite the opposite in fact. H.I.M. is indeed the Almighty (in I personal view) but "the Almighty" is not limited to H.I.M. alone. The Almighty is a force that all of IanI can tap into.
So to I being Rasta does NOT mean you necessarily have to agree with every single thing H.I.M. did or said.
I'm getting kicked out of the internet cafe so will have to leave that train of thought incomplete until the next time.

searchin thru an i found a post of mine from the year 2003 ( below) in this forum. i would like to re-post here.Mostly things have remained the same as we can see the same arguments are pon people's minds.
i-man am older now..and mi good friend, mentor,Brother Chappel( in the story) has moved on to the next plane.
allow i to say in all humility--that i wear the scars---the real scars (physical--mental-and e-motional that go with the battles)-- wid no apology.this one is no easy Life..but to all who are real--are tru----there is no other way.ya can't read it in a book or watch it on TV..ya got ta LIVE IT......"Who feels it ...knows it"---Literally----in i-sight. (ex....)


greetings to all from deep in the dirty south..

Stating first...that i am not a learn-ed man but simply one who continues a lifelong search in any and all realms for dat illusive..TRUTH....
I have read the reasonings here an although some were difficult for me to follow ,i would like to add my perspective..
keeping in mind that it is from my life ex-periences that i draw an that as many would tell you.. i normally allow poetic ex-pression to bring out the thoughts and feelings that reside in my i find it difficult to truly say what i want to convey in  regular  writings..but this attempt i will make..

Racism is a  reality.. an to i THE most pressing problem in the world today.And..has been since my birth some 47 years ago.
For me to deny to deny all that my life ex-perience has taught me and to deny Reality..The fact that the vast majority of white folks do not care to shed the covers of Racial supremacy's illusions , rages the fire..within all aspects of my being.So has it will it be.

I have read the many perspectives here.And i do understand what most are saying.At least i think i do.Yet my Soul wonders how many white brothers an sisters who come here do truly understand what the Black brother...and sister...and child , goes thru every waking moment of their lives.Not just in Africa...not just in the past ..but now.. the world over including America..I am sure that many read or study or see the least the blatant acts of racism that are sometimes caught in one realm or another.It is easy to talk about the past an dismiss it it as.. i wasn't wasn't me..i am not my ancestors ..and so on..But the Truth of the matter , is the matter of the Truth....RACISM flourishes today   Albeit seemingly more subtle to some..but JAH give us ears ta hear an eyes ta we must hear an we must see...

...tell ya what i know ..not what i think , not what i have heard...not what i have read..WHAT I KNOW.What I have seen.
Black man goes to court.. racism has it's say.Po-lice come a callin in the Black neighborhood..racism has it's say.Black Children go to school...racism has it's say.Black person goes to the doctor..or worse the emergency room..racism has it's say.Black person goes huntin a job..racism has it's say.Black Woman tries to rise up..racism has it's say , in a double kinda way.Sometimes subtley..quietly..sometimes wide -open but..always in every realm in every aspect of surviving this physical world..racism STILL has it's say.So we say..why?...yeah man..why ? Did the laws change but the people's hearts remain the same? So they Say..give in to them a little so we don't look so barbarian..but still we will con--trol.The powers that be have spent hundreds of years con-trolling by any an all means and still they will ..unless the hearts of men ,the Souls of men are changed..Revolution of the Soul yeah....and i-and-I say that racism is still the most potent weapon they carry within their arsenal...deny my reality but still it is my reality.. what we do..pick up the gun? what makes sense when it's a thousand to one?so what do  we do?..preach One Love..Unity?
Preach it yeah.but first we got to LIVE IT  An in my eyes for white folks to live means doin ALL that is within each one’s power every living moment  to right a wrong.Not just any wrong.But the most horrendous wrong this world has ever known.Racism  An to start white folks must realize that everything does NOT belong to them.The past cannot be changed.Some will say we must all forgive and forget.Forget ? ..Millions of murders, rapes,attempted genocide.How in JAH's name can anyone forget,especially with the perpetuation of the past in this hour.No man..forgiving an forgetting..the two they mingle not.Put the images in your mind an see them as if they were right there in front of you.Children dying...Blood flowing ..beating...savage rape...human slaughter an on an on throughout his--tory tell anyone of African descent that they must forget ?..NO man NO !

Have you been so close to the hard core racists that the hot breath of pure hatred burns your very essence?Have you stared down the barrel of one of their guns one flinch away from leaving this plane at the hand of another man.... or been slapped down for your beliefs?  Have you given up on family an friends who refuse to want to see the Truth ex-posed prove your ONEness with the struggle.Have you risked lonliness, alienation, financial loss, physical even show that no matter the loss... you are what you preach..that you will do anything to make this terrible wrong be turned to a right ..that we may all get on wid True Unity..true One Love.It will take all of this man....Risks ....and MORE... to even get a glimpse of what so many centuries of oppression has heaped upon Black shoulders.No wonder that distrust reigns..

i just can't see sittin behind a computer screen an sayin all will be okay if we just forget an learn to love.
I Love ..every day of my life i love...deeply.And it is my Love that sustains will hear me say “One Love”..”JAH Love”.. an “Unity”.An when i say these things they are straight from my heart..but they are pleas.. pleas yuno..not realities.Not at dis time.I cry for love..for peace..for unity..but not without also crying for Truth..and for true equality for all and an end to de CRIME of racism..and also cryin to all white Brothers an Sisters who are in some stage of understand, to TRULY understand ...the plight of our African Brothers and Sisters..who every day and in every realm of life put up with dem  looks of disdain  from the majority of white folks..for what ? the color of their skin..It is the oppressed who will lead.It is up to all others to decide if they will overcome ALL prejudices..all claims to superiority an the privilege that goes with it and walk..fight..and live what they preach no matter the risks.The answers lie in the Heart and Soul of Africa..and dilution is not nor will it ever be an option...

a quick story an i will close..
as a young boy ( teenager dat) i was playin baseball with a semi-pro baseball team down here in the  way deep  south.This would have been around 1972-73 i suppose.(time flies yeah).Anyway i was the youngest on the team an the only  white  player.So..we were comin back from an out of town game an the car i was in with about 6 Brothers broke down, an i mean in the middle of nowhere yuno..old country road and all..and it was almost dark..So..There was a big farmhouse.Remind you of a plantation setting an all, setting off the road a ways.All of the guys looked at each other an finally somebody said.. who's gonna go ask for help ..Not me..not me..not me”...came the replies. Them white folks ain't gonna beat me down way out here in these woods. Inevitably all eyes turned to me.Let the boy go ask..he's white..they won't mess with him. Yeah man you go  ..
But the old guy(named Chines Chappel) who was drivin the car jumped in..
 whoa y’ cain't send him up there   .. why not ?”  Somebody asked.”they won't hurt one of their own. ..
so.. Old Chappel looked at all of them an said.. you send the boy up there an they that see he's with us..they gonna kill his ass , then call the po-lice an say we did it ...
ears ta hear yuno..

Chappel is close to 90 now an still reminds me of the time he  saved my life ..(((note Mr.Chappel has passed on since this writing))) we decided to all walk down the road together that day.After a few miles we caught a ride home on the back of a pick-up with a Brother who had been to the game..

so ..didn’t mean to make this so long..and perhaps anger shows thru..but it is what i see and have Lived and seen thru-out  my life.truly difficult for me to put it in the words i want to..But again..each one must do ALL that they can to be a part of this OVERcoming..this OVERstanding..

ONE Love yes..
Unity yes..
but every scar must be healed and payed for...from the physical to the Spiritual..

and racism must be fought down in every realm by any and all means.. by all white folks who profess to be genuine in their commitment to to African Liberation..for the two are One..

 i do not claim that title of  Rasta  ( though there are Ras who call I ras) but i know that until i crossed the path of The Light of Blackness..i knew nothing..i give thanks to Almighty JAH..For out of the darkness comes JAH light.Blessed.

as i see it..

ONE Heart...
