Being theoretically of African descent does NOT mean we are all African. And HIM did NOT see the whole world as African.

Would you like me to provide His Majesty's multiple quotes to support my reasoning? Whereby he defines Africans as those born of the continent and those of the Diaspora displaced through the likes of Slavery?

It's racist to deny Africans their identity as Africans

Not sure why you even bother to insert that in such a positive reasoning. We've reasoned your position on this before. You must, however, recognize that you cannot, by unilateral proclamation, ever deprive me or any other human of their African birthright I-dentity simply because you chose to construe the term "African" using a set of narrowly-defined, arbitrarily-selected criteria. All you can really hope to accomplish is to somehow convince yourself (and maybe some others) that you are "more African" (whatever that means) than I&i and/or my brothers & sisters.

Rasta deals on a higher plain than birth certificates and passports -- we look to our spiritual homeland and the homeland of our ancestors.

No quotes from anyone required to support or "document" the simple Truth.

By the testimony of His Majesty.

Where you specific fit into this isn't really my business

My point is that 'African' speaks to a specific set of people as outlined by Haile Selassie and not all of humanity....

That's all

"African" describes every human who cherishes his/her African heritage & ancestry and longs to dwell in his/her homeland of Africa Iternally. No such person can be barred from their African roots by a devil philosophy that seeks to create a private club with bouncers at the door to deny people their spiritual I-dentities.

To deny me for simplicity.

With your love for vanity now.
Yes, you have got the wrong interpretation
Mixed up with vain imagination.

And Jah Rain, and Jah Stars,
And forever, yes, erase your fantasy!"

His Majesty BEGS to differ.

You are another Rachel Dolezal.

A Chinese man cannot wake up an decide he is African. Only in your paradigm. Not recognised by anyone outside of yourself.

His Majesty was CLEAR and specific who he was referring to as African

Messenger: Nesta1 Sent: 2/23/2019 12:45:00 PM

It's very simple really: I am African and cannot be arbitrarily robbed of that by you or anyone else. No unilateral decree nor utterance of Babylon can take away what a man is -- His I-dentity.

Nesta I in no way meant to infer this personally onto you. I have no IDEA what your cultural national and racial origins are.

I called you a Rachel Dolezal as her experience of being "whatever she feels" is well documented

But I argument is much more GENERAL in that the entire human race was not labelled as African by His Majesty nor Garvey nor I. Again speaking generally and not including people of mixed ancestry etc etc I'm not getting bogged down into the details and only working on the general principle.

For years on this forum others have argued they are African and as entitled to 'repatriate'to Ethiopia as a anyone else despite no known ancestral ties to Ethiopia / Africa. When in fact the idea of repatriation to Shashemane was ordained by His Majesty for a SPECIFIC set of people.

I am no fool

My soul dwelleth in its home in Ethiopia. My body dwelleth elsewhere upon the earth. When i lay my burden down, all that will remain of me will be my soul in my home of Africa.

In 1948 Emperor Haile Selassie I donated 500 acres (2.0 km2) of his private land to allow members of the Rastafari movement, Ethiopian World Federation (EWF) officers and members and other settlers from Jamaica and other parts of the Caribbean to go to Africa.
- Specific.

Lioness I know the song of which you speak and from what I remember Stephen is making the point of Africans to remember their native roots and extensive history pre colonialisation and chattel slavery. True righteousness.
