First let i say, Give thanks Ten, for letting ini know about the misinformtion being spread around
"Rasta nah gwan to Mugabe's bash because of the abusive treatment of Rases by the police. Why would Rastas not be invited to such an event yet everyday Rasta is looked down upon by society and downtrodden by the State? In 2005 when there was the Operation Clean Up the flower stalls and curio stalls at the markets were destroyed - most of these belonged to Rastas and for months they could not trade in the City Centre because the markets had been destroyed. Although things are normal now and Rastas can do their trade; Rastas have been downpressed alot."
Mi know say my people are a forgiving people, slow to anger, quick to reason, but mi neva know seh my people are a forgetful people.
Have we forgotten what it was like for ini forefathers in Jamaica?
Have we forgotten how it used to be for Rastaman and Rastawoman?
How them used to capture Rasta like theives, how they cut off ini crowns ?
How ini camps used to be bulldozed to the ground ?
You a talk about how Rasta is looked down upon on society ? The i them forget how worse it ised to be in those imes
Have we forgotten His Imperia Majesty visit in 1966 ?
Have we forgotten how much validation Rastafari got among the society after the visit ?
Have we forgotten who and who was there walking with the Father ?
Have we forgotten it was ini Elders who were there ?
Bobo, Nyahbinghi, Orthodox Elders who were there with the very same people who were trying to crucify Rasta people everyday on every corner and lane.
Have we forgotten even Emmanuel I was there while the politicians were there same way drinking their champagne and eating their lobster ?
Even if there is still much works to be done, Have we forgotten how much that day did for ini people ?
And the i Sunofman, who still keep up this foolishness that you somehow have "personal circumstances" that is any different than any of ini, vex mi vex with the i right now, mi nah care who say what.
"my resentment is personal" Burn dat, straight. You cyant tell i nothing about no personal circumstance
You are so busy trying to figure out why they invited Rasta for and what they are trying to use ini for, that you dont even consider what ini can use them for
Uno nah know say Good will overcome evil ?
What is it that the i dem are scared of?
Its funny to i, the i dem almost talk as if if Rastaman went to them place yah, He is going to enter saying burn babylon and come out saying i love babylon
Mi proud of the bredda Sizzla now more than ever. Mi even say Forgive I jah, because in the past i have complained about him, i burn fyah pon iself for that
Yes, i used to say when is Sizzla going to start using his unique position to do what he should do
And finally mi see the bredda moving in the right direction,, finally doing greater works than just music music music
But now all i see is bad mind business, Rastafari nah support them thing there
Sizzla a man like any of ini, whatever mistakes he makes along the way, him a do his best, and mi give thanks for that, what more can we ask of one another but to do we best.
This one man work work work, music like dirt, and finally put himself in a position that he can get a call from the president of Zimbabwe, and the i dem vex?
wha a gwaan mi people, wha a gwaan ???
Ark i said, "One thing Sizzla should have done is told Mugabe to send mengistu to face the consequences of his wickedness."
a true dat, but here wha mi a say, the Rastaman and Rastawoman them ALL, elders and youths, should have been there, they should have been there to tell Sizzla these things.
They should have been there to remind Sizzla, to tell him the issues that they face everyday
InI people should have been there to demand the Rights of all downtrodden people, instead of sitting on your computer screens and your little corners and complain
How do you squander such an opportunity to go into the heart of the governement and speak for all of ini, ini people inna Africa, ini people out here inna babylon ?
Uno nah know say Jah Jah nah Love dem ting deh?
What a waste, and Rastafari are not a wasteful people
SunofMan mi see you almost happy to hear about the chinese, as if now you found something to support your thinking
But my thinking is different, seen. To hear about the chinese involvement, only mek i know for sure that InI people shoulda have been there in FULL FORCE, in NUMBERS
Mi nah know what really happened there, mi nah know how many went and how many never went, but there shouldnt have even been a question, Rastafari Cut and Clear, ini shoulda have been there
but yes, the i dem stay there on your computer screen and badmind your brethren
The i dem can continue to complain that police are destroying your little market stall.....i bet some even go to the local police station to make a complaint....but uno get a real chance to go
and demand your rights from the highest offices of government, and what do uno do, uno turn up your nose and say, mi nah go dere with them politicians
alright, stay there then
SunofMan said something earlier and , i just thought i would let it slide, but to see Ten say such a similiar thing, and on the same post, now mi cyant let it pass
Sunofman said, "Fikre Jahnhoi, what the I said about resentment is good advice, I appreciate it"
and then right pon the next line he say, "My resentment is personal"
Please bredda, do not say you appreciate i advice, and come right back to what i advice you against, cos in truth if you did apprecilove what mi a say, you wouldnt say the same thing again.
Forgive i if i take that as a mockery of i words
And Ten, what the i said, actually made i smile a little, but not inna good way
When speaking of why Sizzla came there now and not before, you said
"I don't know and don't want to speculate"
but what did you say right before that ?
"perhaps he was offered more money and decided to cancel the 22/23 December show or the promoters decided "
AFTER you mek your speculation, THEN you waan fe say, you nah waan fe speculate ????
A so di i dem a use dem Word Sound ?
Mi done talk
