one love, lemuel.
i consciously avoided to say "burn lemuel" myself, seen.
i think opening a thread like this is kind of harsh. the method itself is kind of harsh, right? even though you have good arguments to do so.
i think youve used this word yourself not so long ago.
i hoped to, lets say reconnect you. so i tried to bring positivy back. you shouldnt get any negative vibes for the person that you are. thats not right. it is absolutaley not personal, you know! so personally i really dont care where you come from etc.
but after things were said and done i wanted you to overstand that "burning" this and that means to clean something. it has a certain effect. its all about purity. i think if they would really deal with hate they would use some other terms. i have to say that black african rastas who want to "correct" white rastas when it comes to black liberation to defend the culture with rasta terms on a rasta website have all the rights in the world to do so.
so i wanted to defend those black african rastas without offending you, seen.
so the whole thing is not about saying that you should be attacked because you are an evil person who will never do anything right but "lemuel" is your username and when they say "burn lemuel" they just say that you should "burn" or lets say rethink your views.
personally i dont feel able to do something like that but black african rastas can talk about black liberation all they want, right? so please dont be offended.
you just have to see that we all have to learn and reason and IN THEIR OPINION you just dont deal with the real VALUES of rasta.
when it comes to this afrikaaner thing i cant say nothing about it and i dont want it. because its up to africans. thats why i say in their opinion.
so please. see my comment as an attempt to build a BRIDGE. if you deny marcus (and i told you that this is a thing a rasta cant do...at least we should know what he did for black liberation) and you try to put the message of universal peace in form of being passive over the importance of black liberation (its not me who says that but i think thats the point) than there will always be problems with those black african rastas. nothing more, nothing less.
but i respect you as a human being! i dont say i dislike each and everything youve said and say and i have no racist intentions.
you can do whatever you want and i wish you all the best. you dont need to give up rasta! maybe youre a real good guy but there are certain conflicts about black liberation and i try to make you see something positive in it (something to learn). i think the whole thing is an act of charity.
because we have to remember equal rights and justice for all and if they would show no love at all they would do some other tings. i think they only try to give you a message.
so please. try to overstand that "burning" something can be very positve or is at least something honest and youre right. we all have to deal with HIM. so i had no intention to say HIM isnt for you or anybody else.
even though your names in the title i think this has nothing to do with bullying. its a reasoning. the reason why im active although i live a little bit seperated these days to concentrate on my vow with jah is because i was afraid that theyd ban me. there were this western christianity vs. black culture discussions and it wasnt under control anymore.
so i think speaking about things is better than always try to live up to the concept of one love by saying "youre right" and "do your thing". conflicts are natural and we can reason about everything.
so you can see that those rastas have a different opinion but continue or you try to find a bridge but what do we have to lose?
freedom for all (even if it means that we have to see when someones freedom is attacked by others)
