No Longer A Rasta

Very wise words brother Evison. All labels even our own names are only extremely loosely associated to the true identity of self which is ethereal and eternal.

Brother Kashta Ras the I path is the I own, none of us here can (or should ever wish to) force the I in any way, be well and Most High eternally guide the I.

Every single soul is on their own journey and all we can do is wish them well and send love to them on their journey as we walk our own.

I don't think the brother came here for advice so in this case what should anyone say besides

JAH guide ❤;️;

See it?

Read this threads original post.

Leaving Rasta because it’s not militant anti-white enough.. How can anyone cry racism racism and turn around and say white people are so bad that they shouldn’t be culturally involved, let alone sexually mix with another race…?

I just don’t get why white people keep trying to prove they’re an “ally” and “one of the good ones” to people espousing that. Luckily this is towards the extreme end of the spectrum, and the vast majority don’t think or act like that; but I think the worst part is that that rhetoric, while extreme, is not condemned. Yet basic Judaeo Christian values like “nuclear family” are specifically condemned as extreme by media and popular culture.. Everyone is quick to denounce and condemn racism, but view racism as a white only phenomena.. silent on confronting ideologies that view an entire race of people as fundamentally evil and of sub human origin. (That rhetoric exists on this site)

No sob story or a victim cry. Pointing out hypocrisy. My advice to the white people who are attracted to Rastafari is to let it be. You like the music, you like the ganja, you like the peace and love; but 99% odds are that you don’t know what is at the core of Rastafari. You heard of Selassie? Okay, cool.. Garvey? PanAfricanism? Black Liberation? Repatriation? Ahh…
So there is a whole “side” to this that not only doesn’t involve you (white rasta), but actively moves away from you.. So let it be. Chances are that you will grow your locks, want to participate, try to prove yourself as an ally and cringe your way through it all. Just be yourself, the real you. The harder you try to be Rasta, the worse your experience and overall stereotype will be. I mean what’s the alternative? Give up the List of demands for white people by BLM? Haha. Point is, you’re not welcome. Forcing it makes it worse. Chances are is that your attraction to Rastafari is a phase, you’re sincere now, but let’s be real… There is nothing wrong with being white. Don’t apologize for it. Focus on your love of god and work to be the best version of.. guess what’s next, YOURSELF!

Greetings in the name of HIM Emanuel I King Haile Selassie I.

Why is The Banned - Hemphill allowed here. this is a place for Rasta Reasonings. Not for men who are stuck in racist identity of whiteness (which harms Afrikan people most but also hurts european peoples) to come and spout Babylonian lies. JAH have mercy 'pon this man.
Just I thoughts.

With much love, Ras Melkamu Gebremeskel

Have I not been pointing out that whiteness is treated as being inherently racist? Thank you for proving my point so easily. Simply being white is racist in your view, yet you can espouse this without rightful condemnation as being an overt racist. Which you are. Me existing with white skin = racist, you saying an entire race of people are fundamentally and inescapably evil = brave and stunning revolutionary?? Lol sounds about right.

I love the call for banning and censorship, just further proves that only the weak minded who have no truth to argue are afraid of discourse and simply resort to ad hominem attacks and calls for banning and censoring. Weak. Tell me what lies I told, show me where I said anything false… nah, easier to just BAN

because there is a difference between having pale skin and being white. Whiteness is a concept not a real thing. That is what Rastafari has always said.

Messenger: The BANNED — Hemphill Sent: 6/7/2024 7:53:57 PM

Riiight.. I know you think you did something profound with that, but you showed exactly my point. Being white is evil to you. That is racist. Own it.

If you won’t, you must be suggesting that “pale skin people” take on that moniker? So it’s just the word sound of white? A color is a concept not a real thing? Dude, what are you talking about. Your semantics aren’t fooling anyone. Pale skin is called “white” by the world. It is an observable physical feature. Just as dark brown skin is called “black”.. Are you suggesting, in the name of equality, to have “dark brown skin people” take on that moniker? No.. White and Black is done to simplify and expedite describing an ethnicity.. You just believe that being white is inherently wrong.. Just as others here believe that white people came from a diseased genetic mutation origin.

Whiteness as a concept is hilarious. You are better off openly admitting your disdain for white folks and culture. Everyone sees through your thinly veiled racism, a better look is to own it.

In your world, how does one repent of whiteness? Can’t change our skin color, can’t adopt anyone else’s culture without being an appropriator, can’t move anywhere without being a colonizer? Can it be that the solution is as simple as calling ourselves pale? Man! It’s 2024 though right!

Everyone! I’m no longer white! I now identify as pale! Wow I wish I would have done this earlier! Amazing!

The term white and black has no importance in the sense of true salvation for all to know the truth don't follow man because of there lack of vision they are some rasta that will say things against a white man but not I , I know that we are all brothers and sisters under one master which is the creator for all doesn't matter your nationality we are all africans with different shades why speak of jealousy and hatred for another because of ethnicity does not make good sense neither is it justify by the almighty god . speak wisdom do not follow man who lack vision I can learn as much from a white man as much as I can learn from a blackman ...selah

There is no such thing as no longer a rasta .. You weren't one to begin with..those who are called by his name are call blessed ..and who He bless no man curse are not called by his name . it is not your course to take when you fail do not encourage others to take that same path . His grace be with you
