It is reality though. I actually do not know any white Ras Tafari in real life. I have never met one in person. I only know of ones from this forum. I have seen white persons sporting the royal colors and wearing dreads, but I never met a white person truly trodding in accordance to the example His Majesty set. I am very thankful that I live in the caribbean where there is more Ras Tafari people around, so I can just trod out and meet a bredrin for the first time and hold a meds.
I do not wear the royal colors out at the moment, because the Irit showed I that it is better not to cause offence. I am white and my hair has not formed locks (even though I started my crown from a shaved head, a comb has not been through my hair, however my hair does not get natty, but if it is not to lock then it is not to, the main thing is I keep trodding as a Nazarite, and let it grow naturally and care for it naturally). I trod in normal clothing, with my head covered, sometimes my hair is up, soemtimes it is not.
I have come to Iverstand that a white youth, such as Iself really needs to humble. When I first came to sight His and Her Majesty I got all excited almost and wanted to wear their Itraits all around and sport the royal colors. But through trodding I realised that many African bredrin and sistrin took offence to this, because it appeard from far as though I was just a white youth sporting the itraits without real Iverstanding, and so I never got a chance to talk with them and bring forth my Irit because they would not want to approach I.
But I have come to Iverstand that it is better to let ones sight you in Irit, rather than physical appearance, because I and I trod is a Irit living trod, and so I and I bredrin and sisrin look at I Irit, not whether or not I wear an Itrait of HIM.
Eversince I stopped with the physical appearance and started focus on my Irit I have met many bredrin. It is when I focus on trodding in Irit that I meet bredrin and sistrin to bring forth the Irit with.
It is when I left the physical appearnace that I met bredrin who look at me for who I am on the inside. lol when one is fussing about the outside so much no one will even see you on the inside, and that is where the Irit dwell.
I had to learn that I really had to humble, and stop trying to be rasta by wearing Itraits and the royal colors, but rather let the Irit of Qedamawi Haile Selassie dwell within my temple.
I do give thanks so much for all the bredrin and sistrin on this forum and also whom I know, who trod Ras Tafari way, and who set the example for I and I to follow. Another thing I learnt is that no matter how much one reads, one still needs to find your bredrin and sistrin out there, because we learn so much from one another. I really came to a fuller Iverstanding of Ras Tafari way through Immunicating with His children.
Haile Selassie I Menen I bless all of the I them, my Itiful brothers and sisters in Haile Selassie I.
Do give thanks. Ras Tafari live!
