The Wise I's perspective is seen. Very much appreciated.
I know not of a religion based upon MLK being the prophetic savior.. To give some context: Most of the Black friends that I have, have been made through attending open mic poetry sessions. The February edition of 'One Mic' was themed as Dreams, to honor MLK during Black History Month. I heard many great poems describing MLK as THE most influential Black Man in recent history. Giving his life for his people. Just to be clear here, from that time to the present, I have no problem with people looking-up to and being inspired by MLK. I do apologize if I had insinuated that I wanted people to cut out MLK and others.. I did not say this but I can see how by using 'Idol', it could be misconstrued. Really, I find it very interesting that most people simply don't know of H.I.M. I think that if they did, they would be incredibly inspired, just as I am.. To IandI, this totally validates in I mind that the ENTIRE system is 'set-up, designed, controlled, ect..' to keep people from knowing JAH in H.I.M Qedamawi Haile Selassie.. Con-tinually downpressing Africa in any way.. 'They' had to kill Bob ya know.. "All and all you see a-gwan, Is to fight against the RasTa Man. So they build thier world in great confusion to force on us the devils illusion, but the stone that the builder refuse, shall be the head corner stone." Bob brings the world to H.I.M even after his earthly presence. Malcolm and MLK can most definitely help to enlighten people, unfortunately they were assassinated before they, like Bob, fully acknowledged H.I.M. to the people.. And I just find it interesting that Bob, Malcolm, MLK are very present in the minds of the people in USA, but Haile Selassie is not.... Even with all of the very conscious Black poets present at the 'One Mic' during Black History Month, I was the only one to utter the name Haile Selassie[IandI poem of dreams is on 'Poets of H.I.M'].. I just think that is interesting, I have met some people who know RasTa but very few..
I very much agree that even if the majority of people don't know of H.I.M., it in no way lessens the Glory and Truth of Ras Tafari.
I come to this forum before any other Ras Tafari associated site. The perspective and knowledge is immense. This is a very active site and I greatly appreciate all that has been reasoned with I.
Eternal Praises to THE Most High!
Blessed Knowledge and Guidance
