"For Decades, Our Coverage Was Racist. To Rise Above Our Past, We Must Acknowledge It" - National Geographic Society (April 2018)

"There’s No Scientific Basis for Race -- It's a Made-Up Label. It's been used to define and separate people for millennia. But the concept of race is not grounded in genetics." -- National Geographic Society (April 2018)

Why anyone wants to continue to foment resentment, anger and division among people based upon skin color, national origin, socioeconomic stratum, or gender is simply beyond me. Regardless of intentions, if we fan the flames of racism, we are guilty of racism. There's no getting even for past transgressions - there's just setting the stage for next set of transgressions based upon accumulated, unresolved toxic sentiments. Jesus taught and exemplified forgiveness. His Majesty, Haile Selassie I exhorted us to emulate Jesus's example. When will we ever learn.




THESE TWINS WILL MAKE YOU RETHINK RACE- Marcia & Millie Biggs say they've never been subjected to racism -- just curiosity and surprise that twins could have such different skin colors

There's no skin color or birthplace, nationality, language or religion on Mount Zion; only the human soul (Iternal energy of JAH Love & Life) admitted by virtue of the Righteousness and Love with which it is imbued.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Psalm 133 (KJV)
1 Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!

2 It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron's beard: that went down to the skirts of his garments;

3 As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion: for there the Lord commanded the blessing, even life for evermore.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Zion is the unique place where the brothers and sisters can come together in unity. Zion is the uniting center. In any other place we are scattered and divided (some willfully & other against their will). When JAH has His rest, His dwelling place, in Zion, we can come to Him in Zion and dwell there in unity with the brothers & sisters. This is the Africa in which dwelleth Iternally the Righteous who have been persecuted. How good and how pleasant this is!

Beautiful Nesta

Poetic ilaful imagery

But biblically false and incorrect.

Zion isn't a fairy tale according to your bible Zion is a place which was invaded and captured through war specifically for the Tribe of Israel. So much that whoever captured Zion and killed the most of its natives were rewarded. And David himself rewarded with a few local concubine women to breed with.. A so Bible stay lol according to your KJV! And no the Tribe of Israel were never the entire human race hence the word Tribe....



2 Samuel 5:7, 1 Chronicles 11:5



And the king and his men went to Jerusalem unto the Jebusites, the inhabitants of the land: which spake unto David, saying, Except thou take away the blind and the lame, thou shalt not come in hither: thinking, David cannot come in hither.

7 Nevertheless David took the strong hold of Zion: the same is the city of David.

8 And David said on that day, Whosoever getteth up to the gutter, and smiteth the Jebusites, and the lame and the blind that are hated of David's soul, he shall be chief and captain. Wherefore they said, The blind and the lame shall not come into the house.

9 So David dwelt in the fort, and called it the city of David. And David built round about from Millo and inward.

10 And David went on, and grew great, and the Lord God of hosts was with him.

11 And Hiram king of Tyre sent messengers to David, and cedar trees, and carpenters, and masons: and they built David an house.

12 And David perceived that the Lord had established him king over Israel, and that he had exalted his kingdom for his people Israel's sake.

13 And David took him more concubines and wives out of Jerusalem, after he was come from Hebron: and there were yet sons and daughters born to David.





So that's that.


And in Rastafari or black culture full stop the 12 Tribes of Israel has always been referred to as Black People the Maafa tribe carried into slavery through ships. With a viewpoint that the white Jew is an imposter.

I don't believe these tings I dash fire on the whole Bible I am giving you the official Rastafari perspective and black perspective don't argue with I take it up with black people I would love for you to tell InI how we are NOT exclusively the Tribe of Israel so InI can start to put the book down!

Selah

Bible: tribes of Israel are a specific group of people

Haile Selassie: sets aside a part of Africa for the repatriation of a specific group of people and refers to himself and those people as African

Nesta: everyone is African


It's just becoming ignorance now with some white privilege on top.

He's going back to a time before Africa was named Africa and before human development had barely started. And against the words and example of HIM
