HAIL ALL MY BRETHREN AN SISTREN IN THE EXELLENT NAME OF OUR GOD AND KING JAH RASTAFARI
AS ONE BORN AND RAISED IN ETHIOPIA I JUST WANT TO SAY THAT IN TRUTH THERE IS NO WAY THAT THE TITLE "RAS" CAN BE TRANSLATED EXACTLY INTO ENGLISH FOR THERE IS NO POSITION OF POWER (OUTSIDE OF ETHIOPIA) THAT CORRESPONDS TO IT. IN AMHARIC RAS CAN ALSO MEAN "THE HEAD".

GIVE THANKS

HAIL TO ALL
I WONDER WHEN WILL MY BLACK PEOPLE WAKE UP FROM THIS DREAM???
WHAT DREAM? THE CHRISTIAN DREAM
STOP SAYING THAT MY KING IS JESUS
JAH JAH SAID THAT EYESUS (JESUS)WAS A MAN WHO SET AN EXAMPLE THAT ALL MEN SHOULD FOLLOW.
SO WAS GANDHI THE MAHATMA, SO WAS MLK, SO WAS PAPA NOEL DYER

I am sorry. I didn't mean to disrespect any of you. My friend told me he wants to become a part of the religion. I don't feel he knows enough or even anything about it. I was just wondering what its about...this seemed like an easy way to find out.

I can't speak for others, but I didn't feel disrespected.

Feel free to ask the questions you need to ask.

I also didn't feel disrespected, but let I explain you this: I dont want you to missIverstand I, but I think it aint a good way to talk about Rasta if one has a name which seems to be taken from a prejudice about InI.
please dont feel attacked, I dont know you and I can't judge you and I won't ; but tell I, how come you use this name ?


why doesn't your friend sign in here to ArkI's forum ?
much to learn here !
I thought you wanted to learn about RastafarI ?


first of all let I explain you that IanI dont call IanI "faith" a religion. it is more a knowledge, a consciousness. y'know ?
and also it aint no -ism to IanI ; babylon can do what it want , RastafarI ain't no religion or -ism.

Stoned is a pretty common word used in North America to say that a person is riding high from Ganja. I know that some people don't like to use that word, but it is commonly used by many. And most of the people that use it don't mean any offence by it, it is just a word to describe the way they feel when they are riding high, like when people say that they are red, high or whatever term.

So I really don't think lets_get_stoned meant any offence by it, he probably just likes to get stoned. And I don't think he meant any offence by saying Rastafarianism. He obviously doesn't know a lot about RasTafarI, as indicated by his question.

I and I shouldn't be so quick to snap at people. It could have been explained to the bredren why I and I don't say "stoned" and why I and I don't deal with "isms".

If someone does come with wicked intentions, then they will reveal themself soon enough, and then the Fire can be blazed. It is the people that know what is going on, and bring disrespect that should be burned, not the people that just don't know. Let a person show who they are before we decide how to react to them.
