The persecution of RasTafari is a constant because we have proven to white Christians and white jesus that The Christ is a black human. There is zero scientific or genealogical proof that their jesus was white except in their illustrations and their programmed Hollywood white propaganda movies. This is also common knowledge to all. Even to white supremacists. Even though most are ignorant and uneducated, they know some geography and totally aware that the Holy Bible was written out of Africa. Hard to convince any rational, literate person that Europeans were walking around Jerusalem at them times? It is also impossible for Jesus to have been white when we also know that Mary was a black woman. All original sculptures and paintings of Mary is a black woman, painted and depicted by white people no less, until they changed her color to white to suit the European.
The attack on the black race is a necessity for these weak minded white oppressors. There is a constant need to keep black men “in their place” as it pertains to them feeling ‘superior’, which is an illusion that they need to create for their weakened psyches. Back in slavery days the white oppressor used to pick on the biggest, strongest and possibly most popular male bucks /slaves and take turns to sodomize him, in front of his family and the entire plantation. Today, their henchmen, the police, shoot unarmed black people almost daily and televise it (in front of the plantation) to keep the rest of us in our place. It is the same behavior for centuries now, and we all walk around hoping for change.
“Leave the fox in charge of the hen house and he’ll be eating chicken every day.”
Why are the chickens appealing to the fox for salvation or even morality? The fox needs to eat. White oppressors need to kill black people. It is truth that is evident! Read a white man’s history book and all of the murders are laid out before you. From 1505 in Constantinople with the Knights of the Templar attacking Muslims to the numbers of years of the African Genocide which some try to smooth out calling it the “slave trade”, the need of the white oppressor to murder is inherent. It is in their DNA. Their own history books prove that. The need to murder black lions is a constant and it won’t ever change. NEVER! The murdering today is no different than in 1505 or any other time. The murdering is consistent and constant.
“They” are pissed at Colin Kaepernick because of his supposed defiance. He is protesting police murdering, and got the attention of the world. White media distract us with the upheaval that it has caused but still aint addressing the nationwide murder squads, at the ready to do more murdering which is what Colin is trying to get folks to pay attention to. It has nothing to do with him being unpatriotic to his country, yet they distract and make the issue about that.
White media talk about “patriotism” and Kaep’s disregard for the country’s flag which isn’t even a part of the conversation. It is your beacon to come to grips with the real truths that they need to kill and for us to shut the fuck up while they go about the killing. Canada is no different to those who can see. Ask our native population before you speak.
Freedom of speech my ass! One is free to speak, unless he has something to say that moves the people, then they systematically shut you the fuck up. How long do you see Kaepernick’s NFL career lasting now? I’m being generous when I say, to the end of this season.
Anyone with a voice is murdered or harassed or harassed then murdered. Charlie Roach, Dudley Laws, Dr. King, Malcolm. All are attacked and harassed or killed or both. They neeeeeed to keep killing and don’t like the interruptions.
RasTafari has always been under attack as it professes a black God. The livity of the doctrine has spread globally without institutions or churches and collection plates. Pride in self, education, livity, love, respect, deep spirituality, peaceful path, fitness, and vegetarian / ital food, non violent solutions to issues are attractive to organic and righteous people. We are not ‘perfect’ people and not everyone with locks happens to be RasTafari. Yet the locks are coming under attack by these colonial, racist, white supremacists in the US and Canada, forcing employees to cut their locks if they wish to stay employed. Again this is not new information. Jamaica’s prime minister at the time Bustamante ordered the destruction of Pinnacle, the first RasTafari settlement in the world, founded by Leonard Howell, where the constabulary went in, pillaged, raped and murdered Jamaican citizens and stole thousands of pounds from the RasTafari people. They beat the people into submission!
Today “they” are directly attacking the folks with locks. WTF????????????? What is this constant need to oppress? They do ovastand the significance of locks which they call “dread” because of their deep rooted, racist fear. “Dread”! What is it do you think that they dread so much?
Some RasTafari bring an intellectual truth that cannot be denied. Tosh, Marley, Spear, Joseph, Mortimer Planner not perfect men by any means, yet spoke undeniable truths that guide the intellectual vibe of this planet yet speak of peaceful solutions. Why are “dreads” such an issue if they represent positivity? Ahhh, pretty simple to explain; RasTafari speak of upliftment for all on the planet but to “them” it comes from a black source. That cannot be tolerated. Peace? That interrupts the inherent need to kill!
My uncle’s name is Hermon King. To his crew, he was called Woody. Woody King was a RasTafari that the Jamaican constabulary, working as colonial henchmen on behalf of buckingham palace, beat up and cut his locks.
I had heard many stories about my uncle and his brothers, my father Donald and my uncle Bentley. The Three Kings. After mom and dad were divorced, both Uncle Hermon and Uncle Bentley would come by to check up on their brother’s wife and sometimes give me and my sister Donna way too much pocket money, which we knew was intended for our mom. They looked out for their brother’s ex-wife and his children. Uncle Bentley was the president of the country’s largest soccer team at the time Santos, and was well known at the time and Uncle Hermon was a real star of the people for various reasons yet the one that sticks out and pertains to this matter at hand, “dreads”.
Like I say, I have heard so many stories about his exploits from so many other people, I got to the point that I wanted to hear it from the originator so I called him in Jamaica today and we spoke for a while.
I asked him about the time that the Jamaican police beating him up and cutting his locks.
He told me his story. He moved to Spanish Town from Kingston as he had just gotten married and used to go down to the river bank each day (a gathering that they called University Riocobe by the River) to read, reason, eat, burn herb, which is all part and parcel of RasTafari livity. He seemed to have been developing a following of people and the powers that be, did not like his influence. So one fine day 14 of them showed up at his home, when he was alone, and took him down and shaved his locks. Sometime later, unfazed by the police brutality, he met “an Irish man, a lawyer named Peter Evans, who was a very creative man” and took on the police force and the Jamaican government to court by suing them, won the case, they paid him a sum of money (he never disclosed the amount and I got the impression that he did not care much about the money) and most importantly from about 1959, it is illegal for the “law enforcement” to cut the locks of RasTafari in Jamaica. Hermon King, RasTafari changed the law in the most oppressive place for the doctrine, Jamaica!
Here we are 57 years later and “they” come after locks once again.
Recognize the fear of the positive energy that RasTafari brings forward yet is always met by violence and injustice by the white supremacists. One does not hear of the reverse? RasTafari or any other people victimizing these racists?
We figured out that we have no interest in fighting them. A spiritual existence is more important than a need to impress the plantation owner.
Looks like I’m going to have to find a lawyer like my uncle did? Even though I have zero belief that it would change a damn thing!
I have said it over and again, stop reacting and responding to the murders. They have never stopped. They will never stop! They are reminders of their “superiority” over black people which work on some...many people. Instead start to promote our own businesses and educate our children... properly... from the home!
They change that you seek is within you. “They” cannot stop your dignity or respect, dead or alive!
Our need to appease “them” is programmed and we will meet opposition from many of “our own” black people yet all know the truth of the prejudice they expect, maintaining their privilege.
I recognize their fear of RasTafari truth and their constant prejudice but that is their hang up and even in the babylonian situation, living “truth” is a must. We understand the murderer. Yet living spiritually is also a must for many of us. Locks represent an affinity to the spiritual as it was / is worn proudly by RasTafari.
I don’t care which public washrooms are for “negroes only”, or sitting in the front of which bus, or how high to wear my pants, or which jobs that I will never have, or which restaurant I can’t eat in because I am a nigger, or which Afrofest festival they try to sabotage in Toronto, or trying to degrade the proud Black Panther movement, or the NOI, how many native American and Canadians you wish to murder, or the locks and the length of my locks on my head. Your racism in ingrained. You are born racist and will never change. Your need to murder is well documented.
Go fuck yourself. I don’t need your permission to be a black lion. This is the major problem. This idiotic system has black lions asking permission to wear, eat, walk, ride and live.
I DO NOT NEED YOU PERMISSION WHITE OPPRESSOR!
Keep on killing, keep on murdering, make up your racist rules, create all of the distractions that you can muster, yet the choice of a spiritual path and RasTafari is mine and you have zero power over that.
Your fear of the RasTafari “dread” locks is your racist problem. I do not need your permission to praise H.I.M.
