First, to answer the I's questions:
I can't list my whole library but some of the most influetial are;
The Holy Bible,The Autobiographies of Haile Selassie I, the Nyahbinghi Creed, Nyahbinghi Chants, Jahug vol. 1-7, Kebra Negast, Apocrypha, Psuedopigrapha,Itations 1-3, Letters and Speeches of Haile Selassie, The African Origin of Civilization, both books of Enoch, Chanting Down Babylon, In The Palace of Haile Selassie, Haile Selassie (Mosley), Rastafari (Forsythe), Ites of Reasoning on Rastafari, Rastafari In Transition, The Rastafarians, Emaye, From Babylon to Rastafari,The Lion of Judah Hath Prevailed, Visions of Rastafari, Ancient Mysteries of Melchizedek, Ethiopia Reaches Her Hand Unto God, Wonderful Ethiopians of the Cushite Empire, Melchizedek and the Mystery of Fire, the Essene gospels, the Dead Sea Scrolls, etc. etc.
InI give Ises on Binghi Hola days with local bredren and sistren, usually a small gathering, and we observe the guidelines put forth by the Incient Elders as best we can. InI do this selflessly and with no other motive than giving Ises unto the Most High in the way that He has showed InI to do. And InI have been richly rewarded with a mystical experience of the Essence of JAH to which words do no justice.
Now the sistren Fyahwombman could perhaps do I the courtesy of clearly and directly answering each of the questions I have asked of her as I have done for the I.
If your problem is with the color of my skin then I humbly refer the I to His Majesty's teachings on this subject.
Saying that Rastafari is only for Black Jamaicans is like saying Christianity is only for Middle Eastern Jews. Do you think that Jah favors people based on pigmentation? "black supremacy" belongs in the same garbage bin as "white supremacy" JAH Himself came to earth in the person of Haile Selassie and told you this and still you don't listen.
Cultural Rastafari is a potent force within the movement and it is important, but it is inferior to spiritual Rastafari (as all things are).
InI are all One in JAH --- this is The TRUTH. Why look for division instead of seeing Inity?
Do you want to see JAH's law established on earth where Love and Compassion is the state of all mankind or do you want to see black people at the head of a church handing out salvation as they see fit?
what matter if a teacher is blue or green or yellow or paisley? --- either the teaching is good or it is bad. Perhaps just as Jah came as a Black man to shake up the white world He will lovingly appear to the I as a pasty white guy and help you get over your racial hangups. Both the teachings of Selassie and Christ are very clear on the equality of all men and women in the eyes of JAH.
Blessed are the peacemakers.
I am embarassed for the I. To say "you and yours will
learn to respect my people's traditions and culture" shows the depth and quality of your reasoning. You blatantly ignore the teachings of JAH and He will deal with the I in His Own Way.
You burn fyah pon I for writing, but not because of what I write but rather for the color of my skin.
What "runnings up north" are you "well informed of"? I do nothing but try to bring the Positive Influence of Jah Love to people close to me with no ulterior motive, no worldly gain and no pretention. I hardly ever leave my home in the hills and I have wronged noone. Iman Love Jah with all I heart, what can you do about that? And Jah is All and you are Jah and I Love you, what can you do about that?
Liberate your mind.
