Hi
I have been raised by a white family. Although I am latino, I am blindfolded by white privilege. I want to cast this blindfold off.

I was atheist but I now see the wonders that Jah works, and the love he has for all humanity. I have been trying to learn about IanI and Selassie I, and I am always trying to become a better, more tolerant person. I have learned some things, but I have never been able to hear the teachings of another rasta.

I know that I am not rasta. But I believe in Jah, in the teachings of Selassie I, I love all life equally, and I am trying to learn the teachings of IanI. Please help me to let go of my false beliefs.

Hail Up
I recommend you take a look through the "essential reasonings" section of the website. Also check all the posts from Ras Marcus who is an honour rebel elder of the struggle. Also the members of the administration of this board like Ayinde, Leslie, Tyehimba, Ayanna and all of them are wise people in my opinion. Take everything as food for thought and make up your own mind about everything. Like Ras Marcus always says, we are all teachers and students. Take care, seek the truth and have no fear!

Also - can't forget the co-founder of this site Ras Akel AKA Ras Forever, who is now with the ancestors:

And check the story and quotes of elder James "Jah Lightning" Campbell:
