Thank you for greeting me! Grin I'm surprised you know me from another board, I feel slightly famous...LOL...I've been reading this site for a while, I just never posted. The conversation is very advanced on most of the topics(which is good). I'm looking forward to giving whatever small contribution I can to the board, but I will probably spend most of my time learning from others. Once again, thank you for the warm welcome!

The missionaries came to Africa with the Bible and we had the land, now we have the Bible, and they have the land.

Forward, to a united Africa.

Education = Awareness my love. Thumbs Up

This is the best site to align ourselves and exchange wisdom!!

I must concur with that statement, as it is a very relevent point to be made...specifically with regards to "Africa Speaks."

Though all are welcome to contribute their views on these boards..it has become my learned understanding that it is for Africans to speak in authority about African related issues.. and not the other way around.

One can be quite learned through much study of books. But the bottom line is...it is only experience that can speak on behalf of itself, for itself with an authentic breath. Otherwise, it serves only to superimpose one's point of reference into an area where there are no legitimate experiences to back it up...head knowledge vs experiential knowledge IS quite a difference....(self determination)

Can Euro/White people comment on African/Black issues? Of course they can...but only from their own genuine reference point as it relates to them.

To me, that creates authentic dialogue between one another, offering the proper space and respect to say and speak what comes natural from each own's experience.

Of course this is only my opinion...and where I choose to speak from.


Christian missionaries, European-Israeli teachers, Muslim Jihads, Caucasian historians, archeologists, anthropologists, scientists, white Liberal Africanists or whatever else so-called AUTHORITY on Black philosophy and African studies can brainwash individual or society as long as the Creator Source permits. They go making comments full of reeks and false accusations of our character, for we have the guts to promote our own ideals for leadership to restore a gender, spiritual, cultural and material BALANCE. As above, so below though to all whom now see Creator's Truth I commend you!

That was an interesting thread...I agree whole heartedly, not only with the admission that Ethiopian and KMTian empires were oppressive...But that too many people also get "stuck" in both of the spiritually and historically.

I am a Pan-Africanist(socialist) politically as well as a Pan-Africanist spiritually/culturally, and  I try to learn from all the spiritual systems of the continent(and globally) and her people .

Dogma turns "we living" into "religion".  We must live the spirituality and the Tswa people definately did, and continue to do that. Living in harmony with nature is a holy existance.

Personally, I practice Ifa to honor my direct ancestors...but it is all related...just as humanity and all life is related.

I'm quite curious... I know you are an individual, but you may be able to enlighten me . What attracts European/White people to Rastafari and  other African centered spirituality?

Is it just because you are looking for the source of things..which happens to be Africa, or are there other factors at play?


My interest is in TRYING to overstand(even if this appears to be in a limited way) the root of so many things from one source. I post things that have benefited me in understanding things . . . I am in no way an authority and have never claimed to be. My only hope is that some who come to this board, who are white, whether they claim Rastafari or not, will be excited and WANT to learn the deeper history behind that which they are trying to get a grasp of. I feel that trying to bridge that gap is very important, and I feel drawn to sharing things I have learned.

The things that I post are things which have hooked me into trying to learn, and I post those things which have helped in hopes that others will perhaps find something which strikes them into wanting to learn more.
