Haile Sellassie I the First Empress Omega love
"Just stop it already, be still and know JAH."
- You stating your orders to the Empress is what must STOP. Again, this is so very typical of a white man to deal with a black wombman like so. Haile Sellassie The FIRST is the judgement, INI burn a fyah for "jah" still. You make it very clear that you are ignorant of the reality that racism is a problem. Ignorance is dangerous and it will surely be revealed quickly within Rastafari camps. There has never been any class within Rastafari, there is Rasta and there is imposter.
I can assure you that a "bingi" held in the hills of california is nothing like a traditional Nyahbinghi Ises. Especially where the ones in attendance have no idea what it is to live black nor know a thing about ghetto life...
"Only white people have the luxery to say "we are all one" and God is colourless.... As they are not reminded DAILY of COLOUR..."
-Give thanks sistah Jahseekah.. fyah again and again sistren
I could imagine, that living amongst all white rastas would allow for one to easily stay in the comfort of their white privelege and not seek a greater and more humble overstanding of the struggles black people endure. It would allow the terms "one love" and "know Jah" or "we are One in Jah" to come as an easy escape and hide from the reality of which people of color live. Do know that they too would really enjoy being able to escape to the hills and live in such a way. So Steven, I encourage you to try reading The Autobiography of Malcolm X, and - be steadfast, and seek Haile Sellassie the First.
"...we are not speaking of any INDIVIDUAL white man. We are speaking of the collective white man's historical record. We are speaking of the collective white man's cruelties, and evils, and greeds, that have seen him act like a devil toward the non-white man. Any intelligent, honest, objective person cannot fail to realize that this white man's slave trade, and his subsequent devilish actions are directly responsible for not only the presence of this black man in America, but also for the condition in which we find this black man here. You cannot find one black man, I do not care who he is, who has not been personally damaged in some way by the devilish acts of the collective white man!"
.."White people seem to think the black man ought to be shouting "hallelujah"! Four hundred years the white man has had his foot-long knife in the black man's back- and now the white man starts to wiggle the knife out, maybe six inches! The black man's supposed to be grateful? Why, if the white man jerked the knife out, it's still going to leave a scar!" - El Hajj Malik El Shabazz (Malcolm X)
Give thanks unto the Almighty King
