We are not just telling black people to love themselves we are telling them to love themselves more than others; unapologetically. Love others too, but your own race first. This is supremacy. And as stated, black supremacy and garveyism has been and will be a foundation cornerstone of this trod you cannot separate the two
Black woman and child
the state or condition of being superior to all others in authority, power, or status.
- The black race MUST hold superior authority and power over BLACK AFFAIRS. We are not interested in world domination and holding power over None black people and their affairs (like white supremacists) but our own is a must. You site the difference?
Dont give I no two wrongs dont make a right argument nobody is talking about enslaving whites and conquering and colonising their home lands; and I dont sight black people being in charge of black affairs being a 'wrong.' When Garvey say stop praise a white god and look for a god in your own black image this is BLACK SUPREMACY by your very definition - putting a BLACK deity instead of white, as superior to all others in authority. And what authority come higher than God?
This is when people confuse global white supremacy with black supremacy. Again, The black race MUST hold superior authority and power over BLACK AFFAIRS.

I think you just afraid of the wordsound when you really shouldnt. BLACK SUPREMACY as preached from InI true Rastafari elders from Bob Marley to Prince Charles Edwards to Robert Rogers right up to Mosiah Garvey

And when there is currently a system of global white supremacy present for 500 years+ you think there doesnt need to be any process to counter the effects? If the political system the food system the education system the economic system spiritual systems and cultural systems are all white run / white owned, even in black majority countries; you dont think black people need to start doing for depending on and thinking for SELF? As i said black supremacy is a reparative effort to counter the effects of white supremacy. Please overstand this is InI self reparations that ones like Ester Stanford-Xosei speak of.
This is the WAR the until speaks of until a balance is found - Not until black people are controlling and enslaving or colonising whites we have no wish for this but balance and equality; and to get there we need to start thinking black first
Rastafari say GARVEY I
Mugabe kicking whites from Zimbabwe to the reclaiming of land from white farmers in South Africa.... thesr are examples of black supremacy. On the surface / if a level playing field was deh deh from the start this looks like wickedness. But when you put the context in of the history of white supremacy surrounding those examples, you see why those 'black first' revolutionary acts are needed to restore balance. We give thanks Rastafari say AFRICA FOR AFRICANS and we overstand this is a necessary statement given the CONTEXT it is placed.
For many of us even growing our natty locks is an example of black supremacy as we prefer this natural freeform African aesthetic over what we have largely been programmed to believe is right in the eyes and by the standards of europeans. Black people start say black over white even in term of aesthetics. Again, black supremacy
I try to give as broad a range of examples I can to try and allow you to see past your white privilage and naevity and sight why Black Supremacy is necessary and is not a wicked thing. You also should know Black Supremacy has been present as a cornerstone to the very foundation of Rastafari, you cannot seperate it
And re: reparations. The money aspect of financial reparations are only one tenant of what reparations are. Reparations literally means repair process, and includes all of the processes needed to repair we as a people from the inter generational effects of colonialism and slavery. No point giving black people a check if they going to spend it at McDonald's, Walmart, chinese hair products and bleaching cream...ie mental slavery. And the idea of reparations via begging white ppl for a check is white propaganda (and actually empowering them). The majority of reparations are self reparations. Of which rastafari livity is the ultimate form. STILL, cant get away so easy....... financial repairs are needed and wont be discluded.

Black Supremacy is black people thinking and acting BLACK-FIRST in order to restore the balance offset by 500-1000 years. It is a necessary self
reparative effort of which this trod was birthed out of. It has no interests in the oppression of other races but the upliftment of the black race first among black people
Starting with God. Who is a black King....what is more black supreme then that. There is nothing racist about it
