We know that the truth is within the hearts of man, since man is Jah son and one with Jah. And we know that men learn the truth about themselves through the words of truth that Jah inspire in the hearts of brethren. This is how one man break the seven seals and now so many thousands and I don't know how many, but a lot of people, come to see the reality of Babylon and Africa. The truth was inside them all the time but the words of H.I.M. spread the truth to others who were then able to continue the teachings, and that is how truth spread - not the spiritual truth, since that always existed, but CONSCIOUSNESS of the truth.
So why do we love to use such confusing language, that you basically have to be a rasta to understand? We must learn to teach the people of the world in language that they can understand, and we must learn to avoid ambiguity.
Now I ask this question for the forum to investigate. What do we mean when we say "black man"?
I will state some truths that should be obvious to anyone of reason. First of all that all men are the same, a family, therefore there is no real racial distinction. Obviously I have never seen a man with either black or white skin, but all have brown skin of various shades, and everyone is coloured.

If I am speaking to someone that doesn't Iverstand RasTafarI language. I will make sure to use words they Iverstand, or explain to them the meaning of words so that they Iverstand.

But this is a RasTafarI forum, so I speak in I language. If someone come and doesn't Iverstand a word or phrase, they can ask for the explanation.

Just as I will ask if I don't Iverstand. I have reasoned with many people around I and also on different forums on the Internet. If someone says something I don't Iverstand, I ask the people to explain it to I, or I do a little search on Google, and find out for Iself. I have no shame in not knowing something, I only have shame if I want to know it, but don't put the effort to ask or find it.

Jah Live,

Black, white, brown, red, yellow, pink, etc.

I love all these peoples and recognize them all. And I respect, accept and love the different cultures in their uniqueness, and I recognize the many similarities between the cultures.

But I don't deal with color blindness, I love all color. I find that usually when people speak of color blindness, a white man will see all as white, or a black man will see all as black. But why must we ignore differences. I and I should rejoice and love the differences between the people. This is the great richness of Jah creation.

Jah is One,

Seen Ark I ......JAH RASTA FAR I

This INSITUTIONAL $hit$tem - "White Supremacy" is an emotional term. And people start getting vexed by it. B4 I sited racism, but I site that is not the correct term because racism is only a tool of "white Supremacy" INSITITUTION, just like feminism, genderism, capitalism, socialism, religionism, nationalism, consumerism, insitutionalism.....The "white Supremacy" Insititution is the VIOLENT dominiation BY the FEW of the MANY....not just materially but mentally.....

NOT ALL WHITE MALES are term comes from the history of the last 2,000 years to site this pheonomeanal INSITITUTION of white masculine dominiation by "any means necessary, world dominiation thru imperialism and colonialism of all women and men of color........

THIS INSTITUTION welcomes followers regardless of race, gender or religion.....the only stipulation is that one adhere to the RULES OF THE GAME, up hold the position of the few by the many..

So does this address to the question "what is a black man?"

It is used by the White Supremacy to has nothing against the black man as long as he abides by the established WHite Supremacy line, by establishing a PHILOSOPHY of COLORBLINDNESSS.....

AN example....IN the market today I sited a Sudanese man, very very black and I know that the man is a "Lost Boy" because this $hity I reside in praising up themselves for thier "charity" to the "lost boys". I site the man is so blue black beautiful and yet in this $hit$tem it is RUDE to talk to a "black" man and site color. In the states color is always something of shame for everyone. Lack of color is something the USA prideself upon....WHAT a joke...
Do I close I eyes ? I vex I self because I am fighting this stupid CONFUSION NOISE in my head about WHite Supremacy rules of colorblindness against the obvious beauty of this man which is so rare in the AMERICAs and those terms of monoculturalsim. AM I just a part of it by siting him at all ??
I really wanted to ask him about Africa, but the whole story about Sudan and he has been made out to be something exotic frustrated I. I honor the man's space and questioned I intentions. I wanted to respect the man's humanness and I have allowed someone else to do it for i.

Life is color.....Color has energy and exisited B4 man... But man has taken it upon himself to blaspemy color to attach symbolism to define color......(cinsider how many ways you can say green when you buy a refirgerator)

I define a black man as the man who knows his roots from Africa... the Black Continent. I am reasoning it out as well, because like "White supremacy" I ask am I attaching symbolic superiority ?

White and black are the saem really...
White is the full spectrum of all light colors
Black is the full spectrum of all pigment colors
if there was not light you can not see color if there were no colors there would be nothing to see......

THANKS AND PRAISES FOR ALL JAH COLOR...........................................
For as large as the dictionary....why is it so difficult to be ONE..

jah rasta far I
blessed love....

Hey there,Selassie I children,

Do inI really haffe fight????
What is it,bout this colour of the skin???Remeber that the Kukuksklan
also was raised,after men sharing their own visions bout a colour of ones skin!!!
We a the Rasta,therefore InI should nah put energy inna something that works out in havin no fruits...Just as i beloved Sistah Nefertiti already mentioned:white supremacy,is a thing,developed by babylon powers,with the intention to brainwash peoples,to mek them believe that a Whiteman is superior to a Blackman...Pack of bullshit,i say!!!WE all are the same,no matter what colours our eyes,skin,hair,or whatever may be...Selassie I rules us all,the Blackman,the Whitemnan,The Asianman,The Indianman,all things under JAHsun are ruled by HIM.And as He nah wan us fe be ``different`` orso,
inI should stop the quarelling about ones colour of the skin

I still need to meditate further, but the comments have been very helpful.
