Title: What is the Change?
Post by: NAMASTE on April 07, 2006, 04:05:51 PM
What has the change in the Rastafari Movement been since Bob Marley died??
Has reggae been sold to babylon and used only for profit to record companies? Has the way of life lost it's rebellion? Or is the rastafari movement progressing to where it was going 25 years ago?

please post any and all responses....

Rastafari is moving and growing.  but like all things that come from black people, white people mess with it.
I mean Rastafari is not dead .  Reggae is definitly being changed into secular music promoting babylon.  and DEFINITLY Rasta style is being copied by non Rastas.  But the interest in style of dreadlocks, red gold green, and smoking herb can be taken too ways by non Rastas :  1 - they will merely become outside trappings to the person and they will have no real idea of Rastafari and the applacation of it to their life   or  2 -  the interest will lead to a hunger for knowledge and maybe....will lead to a new dread.
