InI agree that this post is awkward and not well worded. InI also agree that the statements pointed out by Empress Nzingha are descent reasons to wish to not email this person. However, it appears to InI that this girl here is a youth, most likely in high school, not a Rastafarian, and so does not see the distinction between Rastafari and religion. For a non- Rastafarian it can be a difficult concept to grasp. Also, if she is in fact who she says she is and is not very good with the English language perhaps it is the language barrier which makes it difficult for her to word such statements properly.
Perhaps by responding with emails, anonymously, we can enlighten the girl with our sensibility. Certain potentially incriminating questions about where we live or what we smoke we don't need to answer and can explain why. Other things like sexual preference we can avoid as well if we wish.
What InI are trying to say is that if this girl is legit, just working on some assignment for high school, perhaps we can educate this person properly and not incriminate ourselves or our bredren. To InI the questions seem like she has done some research on the subject of Rastafari and has found some very basic, probably biased and innacurate information about our culture and King. If she is in fact looking to learn about our ways, I think it is best for us to give assistance. To be so afraid of the world can make us paranoid which is weakness still.
So what InI would suggest is that if y'all wish to respond, use a new email address with a fake name or an alias if you wish to protect identity in case it is some wickedness. Don't answer questions the I wish not to, and explain why. I remember in high school some of my classmates would do sociology or 'world religions' papers and choose Rastafarianism as a subject because they found it interesting but most if not all the information they research is false. Rastafari as a culture is not something that can really be researched because it is so beyond the people who write articles and books about it typically. Essentially the only way to accurately research Rasta is to read the Bible, Kebra Negast and to read statements made by King Selassie I.
The way InI see things, King Selassie I was never afraid to make statements in public declaring the truth of Rastafari. And the only reason we today know what these statements are exactly is because of how public these statements are. Selassie I make statements to the United Nations, the League of Nations, so many individual nations, world leaders, different communities- Rastafarians should not be afraid of Babylon knowing what we believe. In fact, it brings more power to us when we do not hesitate to speak of our livity. Selassie I also make so many statements about the importance of education- why should we hesitate so adamently to educate this girl? JAH is InI guidance, seen. As Haile Selassie I say JAH is the rudder of the Rastaman. If InI are just speaking of JAH greatness, there is no reason for prosecution to conquer InI.
JAH guidance and protection
