Recently, over the past two years of InI life InI spritually searched for InI identity. InI grew up Christian but InI never really believed it. InI read into my own (white) pagan and poleytheistic roots and culture. it was interesting, but InI didn’t believe it, InI didn’t feel it in ma Hart. So InI moved on, to read about Japanese culture, customs and religion. Again, InI quite interested, but alas InI no feel it. InI no believe it. so InI read about Chinese, Thai, Indian, Kurdish, Korean, and South American Culture. ALL of these were interesting and amazing but again... InI no feel. InI no connect. InI look into Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam, Spiritualism, Indigenous Religion, Christianity, Krishna, Sikhism, Judaism, Jainism, Cao Dai, Universalism, Juche, and Zoroastrianism... InI sit still lost in spirit. InI feels none of these. InI knows what I am inside. Finally on the end of this journey InI start to read about Rasta. It was very interesting to InI. InI read into Haile Selassie I, and automatically love him. feel everting Jah says. But here’s the difference, when InI read about Rasta, InI feel, InI is moved. InI knows Jah was in my hart much longer before Rasta discovered I. So InI start to dive into Rasta and read into it. InI read into the history of black culture and oppression and slavery and how white culture drove them from their home land and Babylon colonized. InI love the spirit of the Rasta, how they fight oppression, stand for love, stand for peace, stand for freedom. InI was Rasta and InI know. butttttttttttt....
When InI began to get on Rasta forums InI see that most Rasta of Color want no part of white man. this to I was puzzling? Instantly judging and turning a brethren away because of the color of I skin? is this not why Rasta was created in the first place? Becayse of racism and prejudice? Which then formed into slavery. Rasta creates to oppose racism and take back Africa for the Africans. Repatriation. Roots of Rasta are Love, Freedom, Peace, Happiness, Discipline, unification, the end of Babylon and all oppression to JAH! Although in my heart I believe no one can say they “CREATED RASTA” because to I Rasta was always here. ever present since the dawn of time like JAH. So why does certain Rasta say others cannot be Rasta based off of skin color? I AGREE, Rasta calls for the Black Movement of Taking back Africa and ENDING ALL RACISM. but I think Rasta calls for this because Rasta calls for freedom of all oppressed. Again I don’t think any culture or racial group can actually say THEY created Rasta because if they true Rasta they know Rasta is not something you create. Rasta always been. Regardless of race. Rasta calls for Love and Harmony and not equality but EQUITY. Rasta call for unification of ALL Bredren and Sistren regardless of skin color. People say Rasta is specifically for the Black movement back to Africa, which I unserstand, but do not agree with. Rasta was discovered BECAUSE of the Black movement back to Africa, but that’s not Rasta in its entirety. Rasta , like InI said before is about love and equity for ALL races. It’s easy to see how ones makes the connection that it has to be JUST about the Black Movement to Africa and taking it back because InI will agree that people of color have been THE MOST OPPRESSED PEOPLE IN HISTORY, InI will agree with BLACK SUPREMECY. I
will agree that you DESERVE REPATRIATION. InI will agree whites have AUTOMATIC PRIVELAGE And InI will do my best to help each and every Black he can get back to Africa and Heaven on Earth. InI admits the Black population is owed and deserves EQUITY. InI knows these things, and feels for you. Maybe InIs people were never taken from their homes, maybe InI doesn’t know what that’s like, maybe InI doesn’t know THAT SPECIFIC struggle. But InI knows struggle... InI knows heart ache and pain. InI is still human... regardless of Is carbon body. InI may never have EXPERIENCED that. But at least let InI try to understand and help...at least let InI sympathize for your people... InI is aware of ones own privelage, whether InI wants it or not. LAST thing InI wants to do is taint Rasta and steal. InI is NOT trying to steal your culture, InI thinks Rasta isn’t even culture anyways. it’s a Livity. but even if InI wanted your culture, can you not share? InI think you’d want the all the help you could get. InI knows you won’t share because you think white man ruins everything (racism) and you judge InI for Is white skin just like Jah SAID NOT TO DO.!InI wishes skin color wasn’t a thing. InI wants to leave his body.
but in reality InI can’t. InI knows I am with Jah. InI reads Selassie passages of as long as man sees race there will be war, race is no more important than the color of a mans eyes. then InI sees you all telling me I cannot be Rasta because of the color of my skin?? because of something I cannot change? because of something Jah chose FOR ME? To hate WHITE CULTURE is something InI strongly agree with... but to hate WHITES!?!? to think every white is evil no matter wht? to already have a preconceived notion of InI based off of InIs skin color Jah have gave I before I even open Is mouth? Before InI even have a chance to take any kind of action? and tell my story? I’m automatically evil because I’m white? is both our blood not red? if both our skins stripped will we not look the same? Is this not the same ideology that is the reason your people were taken from Africa? InI thinks when you say whites or Japanese or Chinese or South Americans cannot be Rasta, you are the imposter. you are poser. InI knows you are the wolf in sheeps clothing who try an push I away from TRUE Rasta. InI appreciate and LOVE the brethren and sistren who stick up for all races of RASTA. because they are REAL RASTA, and they know that JAH made us all EQUAL.
Garvey said Afrika for the Afrikans, but if a white man is nice, if a white man is fair and loving and generous and white man is RASTA why do you not welcome white man to Africa? to share and hold hands in peace and harmony? because you already have a preconceived notion of I? You think of InI already evil and will ruin everything without knowing I? a thought born from your racist, burning heart? What if yes InIs carbon body is from Europe, but InIs feels his spiritual body and presence from Afrika? who is one of any color to tell me where the INSIDE of my body lay. where I feel my spiritual home is? it is said time and time again in Rasta that Ethiopia and Zion in heaven on Earth.... but just for spiritual bodies with black skin? what if we are spiritually alike but physically different? who are you to judge me by the color of my skin?
InI knows when you say Whites cannot be Rasta because WHITES ARE EVIL, you are not speaking from JAH. you are speaking from Fiyah. maybe you claim Rasta, but Rasta knows no race. Rasta in Unification for all and equity for ALL. therefore this implies the Afrikans claim their land back from the injustice of babalyon yes... but also so much more... Rasta calls for every race to fight oppression and hate. Rasta calls for WORLD unification and HARMONY. continue to spread hate from the fiyah in ya hart. wish for me to burn all you want, but you are currently the only one burning. I am not black Rasta. I am not Chinese Rasta, I am not middle eastern Rasta, and I am not white Rasta, I am Rasta.... and Rasta is me....
InI post questions in this post, but InI need no answers. InI not debate you. You might as well never reply because InI knows Jah is In InIs hart and needn’t not need acceptance from a few racists who claim to be Rasta. InI need not prove himself and the presence of JAH IN HIS HART TO ANYONE. InI just made this post to explain ones story. InI will always be Rasta and worship JAH. whether Africa is the home of my PHYSICAL BODY OR NOT, I know somewhere there lies my spiritual body. and who are you to tell me what I feel inside? end the racism. emancipate yourselves from
mental slavery. the RASTA is for all and all for RASTA.
ONE LOVE FOR ALL REGARDLESS SKIN COLOR JAH
