Re: Race mixing to to break down racism?
Posted: Tuesday, June 15, 2004

Taken from a reasoning on Rastafari Speaks Message Board.
The threads for this reasoning are linked here


by Ayinde

" interracial relationships are a great tool to break down racism" [sic] - Ras Adams Simeon

Genocide:
The deliberate and systematic destruction of a racial, political, or cultural group

The Rastafari Movement is political, cultural and Black African focused.

Is that what (((SOME))) mean when they say Rastafari is a new breed of people? Is the motivation here to end the Black race? Surely they are not selling this 'mix and get along' idea to those at the head of the capitalist system. Try telling those like Bill Gates that they should marry and share their wealth with the poor fat Bantu woman in Africa to help break down racism.

These are the kind of views that are held close by some or even many Whites when they get into Black Movements. Their mission is to destroy Blacks racially, politically and culturally as well as change the objectives of the movement.

So I make no apologies for having extreme caution when dealing with many people, especially Whites in a Black Movement. Many just do not get it, and want to be spokespeople for Black causes.

It is quite easy for anyone to shout 'Haile Selassie' and 'Rastafari' all the time, while holding tight to his image. Many don't get that different people interpret these symbols differently. So Haile Selassie for some lighter ones can easily be the symbol of covertly encouraging Blacks to race-mix so that they (Whites) can get off the hook, by doing away with Blacks. The easiest thing to do is to copy the symbols and use them against the very Blacks they were supposed to uplift (not eradicate).

I am sure that their are many other 'White Rastafarians' who hold these genocidal ideas (they may honestly not see it as genocide) while dealing with Blacks in this movement. I mean if one who has been around so long could so casually let it out then I am sure that there are many others.
