Infact, true InI a Garveys Africa, I man a extrapolate and say:
RASTAFARI is a subgroup of the African race.
Human classification of Race is defined as mentioned in the post above - EVERY single criteria can be applied to Rasta.
RACE: a classification system used to categorize humans into large and distinct populations or groups by:
anatomical (- Rasta all look a certain way, Nazarite vow and such),
cultural (- speaks for itself, especially anything original or African. The African Rastas in Jamaica have set a precedent for culture in terms of food, music/drum, wordsound, spirituality, and so on)
genetic ( - African genetics (SEE LINK BELOW for our post slavery genetic history),
geographical ( - Africa and the diaspora, direct link / lineage),
historical (we been here since 1930s since the inception of Rasta in JAMAICA as a black power movement),
linguistic (- Jamaican patois with some West African pidgin with biblical influence),
religious (- HAILE SELASSIE I IS THE ALMIGHTY)
"Rastaman are looked upon in society as the black people, of black people; a victimized subgroup within another victimized parent group"
- Baruka (again), a no me say it!
