RasTafari is open to all walks of life there aint no place for class or race. If you feel it then you no it. color of skin should not matter because you say you are arabic are you of darker skin complexion than say Tony Blair. im taking that you are.
RasTafari is a black liberation movement, so you say well where do i fit in, it is up to the fairer skin complexion I.E me to educate their white priviledged friends about the struggle of black people today . Dread Locks don't just belong to RasTas the celts had them so did many other people most probably everyone 60,000 years ago and sooner to where we are today,
you say ''I believe in rasta all the way'' if you do then don let something as simple as skin color stop you from being who you are I dont know what others think but i see skin color as a permenant clothing we can never get rid of it instead love it for who we are  . As i was told If you have a calling you must go regardless of what others think, there will be BLack people who dont agree with white people joining the faith but if you are called you must go no matter what people say .  being black is not in the way it will be in the way if you make it a hurdle but hurdles can be jumped If you belive in Ras   Tafari and not just smoking weed then go if you only in it to smoke weed and pose to your friends then there aint no place
I am White And i belive more than anything in Ras  Tafari Eternal god selassieI

To make eveything come true we have to be together through the spirit of the most high emperor haile selassie I

Yes the Lion within. And not REPRESENT, but BE.
Building character. Engaging our history, both personal and collective.
Serious efforts, otherwise 'One Love' is just empty words, or words used to avoid painful issues.
