Me too. Last time I checked, Rasta was a pro-black religion or an exclusively black version of Christianity lol for us blacks to return to Africa and establish paradise in Ethiopia as they view it as Zion.I know your uncle also thinks that white rastas are just rastas just for the coolness,fashion,dreadlocks,an d weed and not for the religion as a whole.A Kinder Gentler Dick or Little Richard said that Bob Marley viewed Rastafarianism as a religion for anybody regardless of race, hence his quote until all are one and skin of man don't matter I think.
hmmm...true that. Yeah, people don't realise it is actually a religion. Thats why black christians get affended when you ask if they are rasta.
My uncle is a rasta but he has no dreads. A lot of dancehall artists. One called Mavado, he is a rasta but he wears braids.

That's kinda understandable for non-blacks to not see it as religion since it's commonly viewed as a fashion and sub-culture like us AA's hip hop culture with similar characteristics.These Rastas
embrace the fashion of it more than the religious aspects of it like the strict diet they must follow, the music, and teachings of Rasta it's self so non-blacks get the impression that it's just a sub-culture even though it's an actual religion.

All they have to do is ask. I don't mind people asking be about Caribbean or Jamaican culture. I'm more than happy to share some Caribbean light on you :)

Rastafari is not a pro-black religion uniformly. Only the Boboshanti Sect (those Rastas who wear Turbans and Robes) and the Nyahbinghi Sect (mostly Rasta elders and were the original Rastas) are Pro-Black (really Black-Supremacists).

The 12 Tribes of Israel sect which is the largest sect and the one that Bob Marley was apart of what mainstream Rastafari is. There are also smaller sects of Rastafari and some Rastas don't belong to any Sects at all.

Rastafari is more of cult than a religion and I'll tell you why. Leonard James Howell who was the originator of Rastafari ideals which included (Black Supremacy)wanted to be worshiped himself.

The 12 Tribes of Israel is the only major Sect that can be considered close to Christianity.

If you see a white Rasta or any other non-Black Rasta they are probably 12 Tribes. The Boboshanti Sect is a pure cult.

Those rastas worship "Emmanuel Edwards",live away from general society and operate on their own laws/rules. If you hear a bobo rasta say "Holy Emmanuel I" thats he's making a reference to.

Oh, so that's where Queen Nyhabhingi's(an old user who's no longer here) name came from and why she converted to the mainstream Rasta like she said in her other thread. So I take it that these minor sects have their own additional beliefs outside of the mainstream Rast sect Marley was a part of? I don't see how non-blacks can be part of the twelve tribes of Israel when all 12 of the tribes were blacks in the Western Hemisphere during slavery. The Boboashanti remind me alot like a Jamaican version of NOI in terms of similar ideals.

ummm....i can't think of anymore. Jamaicans can insult people pretty well without using swearwords LOL!
Those are the ones i'm familiar with. I don't use all of them, only a few.
Can you understand Jamaican dialogue?
most people have to be around a lot of Jamaicans or grow up around them to understand the dialogue :)
its not hard to understand really, its cos we speak fast that some people don't understand :)
I needed you in the 1980s when our
city first had an influx of
Jamaican immigrants.

We teens would be at the mall or
the skating rink thinking
"pum pum" was a nickname...LOL
