What gwan Idren? Ini see MANY I's use the "Until" speech to talk about "whites" and then it is refuted because HIM specifies "Africans". Although before HIM specifies Africa, HIM say "Any Nation". InI am sure we can all Igree that racism is ignorant and a form of mental slavery. Also we can Igree that the Birthplace of ALL humankind is Africa. I would just like to say that " White" equals those CONsumed and perpetuate babylonian ways. "Black/African" is those that what to get in touch with the Roots. Those that follow JAH. Those that sight HIM. Those that shun babylonian ways and work endlessly to ensure babylon falls.
Seeing as the "Until" speech has been done to death, and obviously isnt getting anyone anywhere. I would like to say, read THE ENTIRE SPEECH, not just the "Until" part. There is much more to it than just that small segment. Here is the closing statements from the same speech from Oct 6 1963.
Our Emperor speaks,
"Were are we to look for our survival, for the answers to the questions which have never before been posed? We must look, first, to Almighty God, Who has raised man above the animals and endowed him with intelligence and reason. We must put our faith in Him, that He will not desert us or permit us to destroy humanity which He created in His image. And we must look into ourselves, into the depth of our souls. We must become something we have never been and for which our education and experience and environment have ill-prepared us. We must become bigger than we have been: more courageous, greater in spirit, larger in outlook. We must become members of a new race, overcoming petty prejudice, owing our ultimate allegiance not to nations but to our fellow men within the human community."
How do the Iya's sight this? It does say "a new race". Which InI sight could be we as RastafarI are the new race. The ones that look past prejudice and skin color. We are the TRUE Idren of JAH. The TRUE Idren of RastafarI. Black Power/Pride or pride for any " race" used too and should include "equality guaranteed to all". I don't stand on the white man side, I don't stand on the black man side. InI stand on JAH side. Which by the way this world has been polluted and corrupted, standing on JAH side in turn puts Iman on the " Black/African" side. I would also think that it may very well be harder for a "white" person to accept the teachings of an African. Like someone previously said, "What if HIM looked more like a " traditional African"? That would not bother InI at all. HIM is still the King of Kings, the Conquering Lion of Judah, no matter what HIM look like. I would still see HIM truth and follow HIM teachings.
Guide and Protect InI JAH JAH
Selassie I JAH RastafarI
