Just talking all kinds of nonsense. Jah Jah is the light. Unforturnetly I have disappointed him. I have also pleased him. I represent no one else. Because of my relationship, Babylon and me do not get along. Many people have turned against me because I refuse not to speak the truth from my perspective. I dont like dishonety. If you are what you are, be who you are but dont call it something else…because you want people to see your coruption in a positive light.
If you want to be a prostitute. Be the best prostitue in the land. But dont go to church every other Sunday and pretend like you love Jah. I am just understanding that I have a different mind than most people. Can you believe all this time, I really thought people knew what I do but just wanted to deny it. Now I know I see the world very different than others. No wonder much of what I have to say is met with silence. I already know the songs I make I cannot sing infront of just anybody. I cant wait to live in Jamaica, and be surrounded by peple who understand me….Rastafari people I am talking about.
I am a Rastafari woman. A very rare thing. I am only now starting to see my self as special. Jah is my everything. I love life – when I am in Jamaica. Life in Canada Toronto here for me is Not so great. Wow. I only realized that now. However Jah make it a lot easier, when I keep his commandments and show love regardless of my own disappointments in society.
I recently met a Jamaican girl. Every comment she gave me was physical. Things like this frustrate me. Life is more than the physical. Does nothing else matter to her. Its just men and dressing up? Man…I realize Jah is only important to me….not to many…at all.
Hmm lets see which one of my songs can I share…ok here is my latest one…I only have the course though
”Looking in my face”
You are dying to get into my mind
Jah Jah know I am not of your kind
You keep on looking in my face
wondering what I am doing in your place
My spirituality spans all time
My natty dreadlocks confuse your kind
You keep on looking in my face
wondering what I am doing in this place
This is how I feel when I go out and my locks are not covered. I have certain people who are dying to get into my mind. But they cant! Jah gave me a gift and no matter how much they try…they will never have what I have nor will they understand my mind.
I am not as angry as I used to be not living in Jamaica yet. But I will get there. I dont want anybody to even mention the word Canada to me. Oh boy. I am sorry.
Here is antoher song…
“Back a Yard”
Life in Babylon is so hard
Every day I pray
Me soon go back a yard
Me miss me Granny House
And me Grandfada Farm
Di likkle breeze blowing through the window
even though it did warm.
Me did have me likkle friend dem
Whe me play wid a mornin
Dem neva did care
seh me come from one place called foreign.
Jah is love, Jah is truth. Only Jah can set me free and give me the everlasting peace I seek in this life and the next. Love and Blessings to all.
I was watching one of the videos I placed on my Rasta blog front page.This is my 4th time watching this video, it’s so full of information. I am now on my 4th time really taking in all that this Rasta man is saying. Its everything I feel and know but never had the words for….This blog post is all about the beliefs and Rules of Rastafari.
White Jesus Christ
In Rastafari there is no such thing as a White Jesus Christ. We believe in Jesus Christ but we believe in Jesus Christ the Nazarite who was a dark-skinned man with dreadlocks, who loved God, and was sent by God to inform the people who God is real. It is not about Race (ethnicity) Just truth and reality. Rastafari is always about the hidden truth. The perfect Rasta Man knows the truth about Jesus Christ, and embraces that truth, not Babylon lies.
King Selassie I
King Selassie I is the descendent of King David. Is this fact not worthy of some praise and attention? Of course it is. But the Babylon system does not want you to know about these things. Mainly because then the truth will be revealed that biblical people and Jesus Christ himself, was in fact black. The perfect Rasta man can feel the divinity of King Selassie I as Jah Elect. With or without the Ancestral Lineage.
On a Rastafari person, the dreadlocks have a very special meaning. They represent truth, Jah, and natural living. They also represent the awareness that all life began as black and that Jah is a black and very powerful entity that Rasta loves and fears. You cannot call your self Rasta and not have your dreadlocks. It just doesn’t work. Your dreadlocks are your living testimony that you know Jah is real, and that you vow to live to please him all the days of your life. Its sort of like when you marry someone and you wear a wedding ring. How would you receive a person that told you they were married but just didn’t wear the ring. Nonsensical right. However….
Leonard Howell – Wikipedia.com
‘Leonard Percival Howell was known as The Gongor G.G. Maragh(forGong Guru), was a Jamaican Religious figure. According to his biographer Hélène Lee Howell was born in an Anglican family. He was one of the first preachers of the Rastafari Movement (along with Joseph Hibert, Archibald Dunkley and Robert Hinds), and is sometimes known as The First Rasta.
Born in May Crawle River, Jamaica, Howell left the country as a youth, traveling amongst other places to New York, and returned in 1932. He began preaching in 1933 about what he considered the symbolic portent for the African Diaspora—the crowning of Ras Tafari Makonnen as Emperor Haile Selassie I of Ethiopia. His preaching asserted that Haile Selassie was the “Messiah returned to earth,” and he published a book called The Promise Key. Although this resulted in him being arrested, tried for sedition and imprisoned for two years, the Rastafari movement grew.
Over the following years, Howell came into conflict with all the establishment authorities in Jamaica: the planters, the trade unions, established churches, police and colonial authorities, and he was allegedly arrested more than 50 times. He formed a town or commune called Pinnacle in Saint Catherine Parish that became famous as a place for Rastafarians. Nevertheless, this movement prospered, and today the Rastafari faith exists worldwide. Unlike many Rastas Howell never wore dreadlocks. Leonard Howell died in Kingston Jamaica.’
Mr. Howell is known for writing the book, “The Promise Key” but I could only find a book called, “The Promised Key.”
The Work of a Rasta man
A Rasta man or Rasta woman is someone who is supposed to represent his or her people. This is the whole reason they are chosen as Rasta. In being chosen for this very special job, we are also aware that we must keep our mind, heart and soul clean (uncorrupted) to enter Zion. Many Rasta now a day are not taking this seriously, but I do. I am still representing and very much in love with my people. the perfect Rasta man feels compelled to deliver the message of Jah the Almighty, this is his natural-born purpose.
What are some beliefs of the Rastafari People?
Rastas have 10 basic principles. I list them all in my new book entitled white Rastafari. But the basic principles are…
Rasta does not eat meat
Rasta does not cut the dreadlocks
Rasta knows Jah is black
These are 3 principles of every Rastafari man woman and child. If anybody says they eat meat and they are Rasta, I would say they do not have the heart of Rastafari. The perfect Rasta man knows to eat meat, is to eat dead flesh.
Deep love for Black People
From I was just a little girl, I understood that Rasta loved the black Identity. I knew that the colours Red Yellow and Green represented Africa, and I also understood somehow that dreadlocks were a way of wearing black African hair in its natural state. But I was just a kid so I wasn’t completely aware, but these were the feelings I had as a little girl about 2 and 3 years old.
Every Rasta has an appreciation for the black Identity. The beauty of black skin, the truth of black natural hair, and a love of black Culture. The perfect Rasta man no matter where he is from, has a deep love for the black African Identity.
The perfect Rastaman enjoys living his life as Rastafari. This means listening to the beautiful sounds of Rasta Reggae music, eating Rasta Ital Food, Using natural products to clean his home and cleanse his body, and give thanks and praises unto the creator – Jah every day. To live as Rastafari, means to live life the way Jah intended them to live. Rastafari is a spirituality that embraces natural living, this is what the Rastafari livity is all about.
Cleanliness and Purity
One thing I have yet to meet is a Rasta man who is not clean. I know some people think that because Rasta wear the hair in dreadlocks, we must not be clean, but actually the opposite is true. Rasta has a “Crown” upon our heads. We make cleanliness and purity a priority, as a way of showing off our crown. The Rastafari dreadlocks crown represents…
King Selassie I
Rasta is some of the cleanest people on the planet, because we where a Jah crown on our heads, we keep our surroundings clean, to show our love and respect, to Jah.
Hello and welcome to my website, my name is “Empress” I been running this blog for about 3 years now. I am a writer and I write books on Rastafari and Jamaican Culture.
Rasta Blog and Website
My blog is here to answer some questions about Rastafari, and embracing the Rastafari livity and also Jamaican Culture.
3 Rasta and Jamaican Books published
I have 3 Rastafari / Jamaican Culture books published so far and I wanted to offer you a deal on 2 of them. My newest book is entitled “Rastafari; Black peoples livity bible” it is almost 300 pages in length, so it is a good read. I want to make it available for purchase on my website. I will be giving away “How to become a Rasta” for free when you purchase “Rastafari; Black peoples livity bible” the e-book on my website. The other book available for purchase on www.amazon.com is “How to Date a Jamaican Man”
2 for 1 can’t beat that!
In essence you are getting 2 Rastafari books for the price of one. You cannot beat that, and…one of the books is brand new. Who knows maybe you will be the very first person to read it.
I am a Rastafari woman. This was not a choice on my part, I was born this way. I am here to deliver a message. The message I have is for black people, with the reality of black slavery, black people need something to remind them of who they were before, who they are suppose to be, and to bring them back to their true way of life…loving the Almighty every day, and loving our selves.
Rastafari is a soul thing. I can only equate it to a computer that you get with all the programs already downloaded. It is out of my head, not my soul, not from my present download, that I am considering writing a book on “white Rastafari” I started to write it….I question how much to include slavery. If I write a book for white people and leave out slavery…then I wont be doing anybody any favours. Besides I feel that in order for whites to truly accept and receive the light of Rastafari they will need to know why the realities of the black struggle. If I leave this out, then I am not helping to close the gap of difference, and misunderstanding between black people and white people. Heres what it really boils down to. There are white people who already have the light of Rastafari, because they have chosen to. Then there are who know nothing about people of color. Some choose this way of life, other would like to learn more.
Because Rastafari is spiritual truth for all people, I decided I should choose to share my knowledge wisdom and awareness that Jah has given me, with all the world. It’s not good for people to live their entire life under a lie. I feel if white people know about Rastafari and follow it…perhaps their life will be more fulfilling more meaningful. One of the worst things a man can do, is to feel he knows everything already. This will only make him dumb.
My priority is to bring this light to black people…then to everyone else. Remember I was sent (born) to bring this light to black people. So, this is not some discriminatory choice that I am making.
It would be nice however it people would share with me what they would like to learn in such a book. I have my own Ideas, but i would love to know yours. Imagine a world without Racism. Really racism is just a lack of knowledge, and experience. Although some choose to be in this head space for whatever reason. Then others want to live a positive life, so they can feel clean and free in the heart. Ok I am rambling.
Rastafari is the truth
Love and Light.

Rastafari: black people’s livity bible (coming by October 15, 2012)
Reprogramming the Black Mind
Excerpt from Rastafari Black peoples livity bible
5 Guidelines to Enter Holy Mount Zion
Honour and Respect Others
Honour and speak highly of those around you, Come Judgement day Jah will judge you based on how you treat and speak of others.
Resist temptation in Babylon. Temptation means opportunites to perform acts on behalf of Satan, each and every time no exception. Temptation comes in many forms.
Resist the urge to follow the ways of Satan, and embrace the way of The Most High. When you have the thought, to do these things, resist, and do something productive, and honourable in the eyes of Jah, the Almighty.
Honour Your Temple
Honour your Temple (your body), by eating clean foods, and resisting all forms of sexual defilement, including sexual addictions. Jah does not like Immoral behavior or disrespect of his temple.
Read your Bible Daily 1 hour
Read your bible daily for 1 hour, this will help you keep your mind on the concerns of the Almighty, instead of the concerns of Babylon. Jah finds favour with those whom tresure their bible and keep his word.
Avoid so called “Fun”
People are doing many things in the name of “fun.” “Fun” can get Rasta into trouble. Do not as Rasta…
Go to bars clubs unless it is Rastafari or Jamaican oriented
Gossip about others
Experiment with sex
Make fun of other people
Get into arguments with others
Stand up on the road side hanging out (idoling)
Rastafari are in the bible
As Born Rasta We have the Rastafari livity written on our hearts, we read the bible to raise our spiritual vibration, and to induce meditation. But there are many references to RAstafari and black culutre, I believe that were removed from the Christian bible over time.
Instead of following the desires of Satan, concern your self with being productive and making a positive contribution to society as Rasta. As Rasta enjoyment means…
Chattign with other Rasta
Building Rasta Buisness
Cleaning the house (spiritual space)
Listenting to some Rasta Reggae Music
Teaching our Young ones the Livity
Watchin educational DVDs on black culture
All with a clean heart are invited into Zion, but only those who Resist Temptation of Satan, and make rememberance of me each day may be able to enter Mount Zion.
Just as the Christian bible says: For many are called, but few are chosen.
This book is way over due. My apologies to all my up and coming black kings and queens.
Jah wrote it on my heart about 3 years ago to write a book such as this. The truth is I had the bones of the book done, but when I was through with it jI fel that it was almost too powerful. Where I live here in Toronto Canada, we get silenced alot. If you are not promoting homosexuality, or lying to people, in some way shape of form, in order to tell them what they want to here, you will be silenced. None of those things is what I am about.
The original book I wrote consisted of many things I learned about ”other nations” by way of meditationan and surfing the internet. I am not out to offend anyone. Not only that I just wanted this book to be high Quality. I want people to enjoy this book so much that they tell their friends. I want it to be the book on Rastafari for people of Color. I want this book to inspire black people to follow the faith. I knew I had to do a better job.
I started to rewrite the book after a good friend of mine told me something. He said dont you know there are Muslims in Jamaica. I immediately thought, there is no reason for that. Rastafari is for the Jamaican black people. I now have a Job to do. I wrote my book on that basis, but you will not get that feeling when you read the book. I want all black skinned people with coily hair to know Ras-Tafari is the rightful faith for them as determined by the Almighty him self. It is the job of every black Rasta to bring the people to the faith. Some dont want to do it on a larger scale, but truly it is our job.
I am doing my part by writing about Rastafari, others sing about it. We must deliver the message to the black people.
My book is called “Rastafari: Black Peoples Livity Bible” I am inlove withe the title, and so far I am in love with my book. I wanted to keep it positive so that people will enjoy reading it and maybe feel inspired by it. Here I will share some of the book withyou.
Black is a shade?
I was having a converstation with a friend of mine, she is white and has been brainwashed into believe that white is superior. We had a converstation alone one day, then she tried to share her beleif with a youing black woman selling T-shirts on the street that “black white and grey” are all shades. I had to correct her. “Black is all colors combined!” (therefore it is not a shade) it is infact a color. “It is the strongest color.” She had no more to say about the subject. We as black people must stop accepting the brainwash. Just because something is written in a book, doestn make it true. Think beyond, and know that you must use common senseand wisdom to know the truth. This information was also given to me by the most high during one fo my meditation sessions.
What I learned under meditation
One day when I had fallen under a deep meditation it was revealed to me that black people are the original, whole and complete human. I did ask for evidence or “proof” that this was true. The answer I recieved was. ” take a look at the other nations. They have your hue-man characteristics, in lesser degrees in variation.” It was revealed to me that Indian hue-mans have our skin complextion but to a lesser degree…asians, have dark hair and even wide noses….to a lesser degree…hispanics, are curvy and wavy to curly haired to a lesser degree…caucasians have black features and characteristic the very least. Caucasions…tend to be straight in the body…lighter haired…with very fine in many cases thin lips and …the hair of black hue-mans is strong…and can stick straight up in the air in its natural un chemically altered form. the hair of other nations…tends to be limp…and hangy.
Positive Black References
To coily African black hair and black skin complextion
In reference to our beautiful skin tone say:
High Melanin Complextion
Black self esteem means, promoting positive black images in the home, being your self a positive black role model, and being a supporter of black upliftment and natrual black beauty. Only a Rasta who loves him self and loves his black identity to the fullest, and who walks next to Jah, will honor this guideline.
Many black Rasta who practice the faith to the fullest, feel a natural loving unity towards his fellow black man, woman, and child. It is important that you do the same once you begin to grow your “Holy Rasta Crown.” As Black Rasta it i important that we place your black brothers, sister, and children “on a pedestal.” Speak to you black brothers and sisters as if you are speaking to a King or a Queen…because essentially you are! Rastafari is a spirituality that practices unity WITHIN the black community.
As you can see I tried to keep everything positive. I have a job to complete. I will do it as much as possible while I am here. Loving my people.
Jah loves you too.
My book should be available no later than, mid September. Then not too longer later I will be moving to Jamaica, to continue the message.

I am writing a book. Well I have written a book, but I changed some things. I realize people like details, so I decided that details is what I will give you guys. The first book I wrote, How to become a rasta, was written for any body who wants to become Rastafari. But, deep in my heart I wanted to write a book, just for my people.
This book answers many questions, and provides information about what it really means to be “black.” I look forward to the new book. Here is the table of contents that I am building now…
who is Jah
what is a Rasta
where is Jah
why you should choose Rastafari
Who should become a Rasta

what is so special about Emperor Haile Selassie
10 things you should start doing today as Rasta
10 Things you must own as Rasta
I had the option to reveal the truth about black people vs white people, but I decided it was much more positive, to just tell black people the truth about who they really are. Life is full of twitsts and turns, not knowing who you are wont help you much. We as black people need to start uniting and lifting eachother up. Just because I write a book soley for my people, its not racism, Im just fullfilling the job I came here to do, deliver the message of truth to my people. Also black people have different social, spiritual, mental, and physical needs, I want to cater to these things. I want my people to take their rightful place by way of following the truth.
I am a black Rasta Empress, who lives black, loves black, represents black, supports black and promotes black.
Every born Rasta knows, Jah Jah is always watching. Jah Jah is a black African, except he is in his spirit form, but he is still a black African. Just like when I become a spirit, I will still have been a Black African, therefore my likes my beliefs, my personality my hair texture will all be that of a Black African. Jah, Jah was not sleeping during slavery, in fact, he was connected to his people more than ever. I believe slavery only happened because black african people (my people) allowed them selves to be enslaved.
He created Rasta and Emperor Haile Selassie I the first
Jah works in ways most people are unaware of. For those of you out there visiting this sight for the first time. When I say Jah, I do mean God. There is only one. Rasta is here to share the word, the truth about Jah and black people. Jah created the birth of Emperor Haile Selassie I to inspire and awaken the black people. To share with the world, the truth of Jah. Emperor Haile Selassie is a life example of what Jah can do, Rasta are the enforcers, of the power of Jah and the life and message of Emperor Haile Selassie I.
im offended every fucking day of my life.
Please don’t come here and tell me you are offended, cause I don’t care. I am offended every fucking day of my life. And don’t tell me what to believe or what to say regarding my spirituality. This is my website, this is my spirituality, and I am the one living this life. Please don’t tell me how to say what I am saying.
Jah loves his people so….
Rastafari is spirit that anybody can have inside. He sent Rasta here with a message. Yes Rasta can be any color, however Rasta are predominantly black. This is for a number of reasons I will not get into right now.
Black people are dark-skinned, with tight very tightly coiled hair. When you are creating something you need the ingredient to be in its purest, and strongest, most natural form, so that it can remain, and flavor, and color whatever it is that you are creating. If you use something weak, then your creation will be weak, and how can you make more of something with something that is incomplete. Black people have the juice, the Melanin, to reproduce, the hue- to make the hue man.
Slavery made Black people stronger
Slavery just made black people stronger and more resilient. Maybe even physically stronger too. We put all our faith in God, and came out a very God-fearing people, who could perform magic such as voodoo, and hoodoo, and other forms of magic, we needed this to defeat the white slave masters. Now our people have special “skills.” Slavery in its own way is our (black people) own little gift.
My new book on Black people
I am writing a book called “love your blackness” In there I get more in detail about the things written in this blog post. No where on this blog did I ever say that I was blogging for people to like me, or to make one group feel more secure with black people. If you feel insecure reading the truth, or learning or know the wrongs of your people, trying to silence me isn’t gonna do anything. The truth will follow you wherever you go. Most of the books I will write in the future will be for black people. That is who I was sent to deliver the message to. End of story. Telling me off is only gonna waste my time and yours and I am not going to stop making the effort to reprogram the minds of my people.
For all those who appreciate truth. Love and Blessing. Jah Jah is not sleeping.
I am so sorry to everyone that wondered WHAT THE HECK, happened to this website? I was away, I traveled to Jamaica in February. I was told on very short notice that I had this ticked (one day actually) and so I did not get a chance to wrap all my projects the way that I would have liked to. Oh my goodness, imagine one day to prepare for something you have been wishing for for 3 years. Here is a list of some things I had to do before I actually went to Jamaica.
go to the bank
call the company running my website and make a payment
call the company hosting my website and make a payment
go shopping for summer clothes and shoes
clean the house
buy some gift for my family memebers
do my laundry
pack for the trip
buy a new suitcase
…and so much more. Out of that whole list, I think, I only went to the bank, did my laundry, and packed for the trip u sing a very old suitcase, and oh yeah I cleaned the house too. Clearly I did not have enough time to call the company running my websit and make a payment. (I will post some pics and video soon) or visit my youtube channel
New book out! How to date a Jamaican man
So I should probably tell you about my new e-book, its called “how to date a jamaican man” it was inspired by my trip to Jamaica, and a fantastic friend/lover I met when I was down their. I was also inspired to write this book because of an article I wrote on this website with the same name, that so many people wanted to read. I figured…” why not do a book?” I thoguht that way I could include a lot more detail on Jamaican culture and the Jamaican mans way of thinking and of course his upbringing.
Here is some more detail on what is inside the e-book…
The Jamaican male mind on women Recipes to keep your Jamaican man Strong What to expect in your Role as Wifey How to handle a Cheating Jamaican Man How to Bring your Jamaican Man to America 10 Rules for Dating a Jamaican man 3 Things a Jamaican man must have The Truth about the Rastafari Jamaican Man
Sex with a Jamaican man for the first time, what to expect
How to meet the Jamaican man of your dreams
I have been doing a lot of black writing lately. what does that mean? It means I seem to be drawn to write books that are about my people, mainly to help to open our eyes. I did enjoy writing how to date a jamaican man, however i feel my purpose is something “higher” than this. I am enjoying my roots and and culture and my spirituality.
The Almighty gives me my direction…
I asked The Almighty about what I am soppose to be doing, (i am feeling weird in this moment) and what he told me shocked me, to think I have been given such responsibility. I mean I am happy, but I am terrified. The only way I can explain it is. This must be the way Obama felt when he realized he was actually going to be the one running the country. I mean it is certainly something I want to do, but the thought of actually doing it over whelms me. By the way, if there is anything in particular you would like to see on this website, anything in particular you would like me to write about you can always leave it in the comments. Back to what I was saying. I think since “he sees and knows all things” I will go ahead with what he has asked me to do. I am scared shitless!
Rastafari book still to come
I have a book on Just Rastafari. It is very extensive, this is the main reason it is taking me so long to write it, plus the unexpected trip to Jamaica. But I am working on it and I am enjoying reading. I really do hope people like it. It is still coming please be patient with me.

More about my trip in a different post
I will write some more about my trip to Jamaica in a different blog post. I love Jah, and I love Jamaica. I have a lot to tell you. Mostly about how I felt as a Rastafari woman living in North America her whole life and finally going to the place that I have always known is my home. Until next time. Keep loving. Live as black African, this truth belongs to all of us.
Do you think you could find more black man and black woman relationships in the 80s and before because it was an issue of survival? We as a people were still fighting for our rights so to speak during those times. I’m still not sure if I can say we are in the clear. But maybe a lot of black men and black women feel a lot more free pardon the pun, to be who they are and therefore feel like they don’t have to have a black person by their side helping them to fight the fight any more.
What about those who are single and black and who today want to marry within the black nation. Is this something of past. Are these people shit out of luck. If they are you can count me in.
More black men date white
More and more black men now days are opting to date and marry non black women. It makes for slim pickings for a woman like me who refuses to be with someone of a different ethnicity than her, Why you may be asking. Its something that is important to me. It’s who I am, carried, on. I want to mate black to produce black because I am so in love with my culture and my people.
More black women interracial date
Many black women are opting to date outside the black race to, however I feel their reasoning is a little different from the black mans. I feel many black woman are doing this because frankly the black men leave them no other choice since black men are no longer choosing to date black women and b a lot of black women are dating outside their race because they seem to mixing and mingling more outside of the black community and it is a common occurence to date interracial these days.
The matter of respect for black women
I feel like the interracial mixing between white men and black women is more underground, or less public and that the interracial dating and marrying of white women to black men is more mainstream. I feel like the black woman who dates out side of her race does not get the same respect as the black man who dates out side his race
I feel like the black woman is seen as a sell out, where the black man is seen as making the right choice and doing what every man should be doing. When I look at it from the outside. I feel the black woman benefits the most. But maybe that is just my own biased opinion, you figure it out.
what am I to the black man now?
Sometimes I wonder just exactly what I am suppose to be to a black man who now exclusively sleeps with women non black. I actually have someone in my life like that now. It make for alot of arguments. I think he likes me as a friend because I am the only women in his life who doesn nto want to have sex with him.
I need a black Rasta man!
Being Rastafari, not just cause a man is black it means I want him. Oh No! he must be Rasta. A true Rasta, and also not too tall please….lol then I may want him. This friend of mine is confusing, the whole friendship is confusing. We had a terrible argument the other day and I said some pretty bad things. oh well.
Black men hate black women now
There are black men nowadays that hate black women so much so they want to show black women how much they hate them. It happens to me all the time. I just turn my head. There are some white women who are extremely jealous of black women’s DNA. The whole thing is diabolical.
Are black men brainwashed?
I am a black woman who loves black, I seek to date and marry black. I don’t have any thing to prove to anybody. I love my self. I feel hurt that black men seek to date out side of their race and feel some how they are better than black woman or that they want to cause pain to black woman. All in all its their own self hate. This is brainwashing at its best folks.
King Selassie married black
What happened to the days of King Selassie and his wife Empress Menen. Another example of a black man and black woman who loved each other. King Selassie married Black. He is seen as a Role model to many Rastafari men.
White girls and Black Rastas
I was having a conversation with a white female friend of mine one day….she asked something I can’t remember the question, my reply to her was “I wont answer that” She said “Why cause true Rastas don’t date white girls…” I looked at her with absolute shock. I said oh my gosh who told you that. She said this girl she use to know. I was shocked to hear that out of her mouth. But then she kept say “right, right?” I told her “yes, real Rastamen do not date white women” she said see I know you don’t have to hide it from me. She said “why” I said “its to keep the blood lines pure”
In Rastafari we have believed in this for a long time. But from years ago you would find Rastamen who did date white women. But there are many who refuse. There are some who do it for financial gain but are not happy in the relationship. Then there are some who wont even let the thought enter their minds.
Which Rastas date white?
Anyway I just find it sad to see that more and more black men are opting not to date black women. the only men that I can see that date black women exclusively are Rastamen, and that’s only some of them. It seems the ones that come from the smaller islands date white women abundantly. Many Jamaican Rasta who live in Jamaica are still interested in black women.
hm well, everybody can do as they like, it is a free country and its 2011. Time for people to make their own decisions and choices concerning love. The time of Black Unity, has ended.
Peace and blessings to all who read this. Unity for all, Jah Ras Tafari
I have been having some bad experiences with jamaican men lateley, have you. I find they lie so much just to get sex from you. they can be insecure and have many women and not even tell you about it. I was so fond of one who was about 4 foot 11 seriously he was the cutest little rasta man i had ever seen in my life. I wanted to have him so bad. maybe thats why I dont. he is the mosrt insecure, short tempered person I have ever met in my life. Truly i think he was hiding his penis from me. but whatever. If I saw him today I would do anything for him. I have a thing for short people. My says its because I am tall. anyway i think he is sexy and beautiful its a really long story folks. i hope i can meet another one. I dont date brown skin men, I like a short dark skinned jamaican man. A friend and i were chatting this evening and I kind of decided there are other men that I need to date other than Jamaican. Those men are not good for me. I am 33 years old all I want is a companion that I can relate too.
he would have to be
I know that sounds silly. I haved had sex in one year because of these perameters. ITs good I feel clean. Icant sleep with people who are not the same spirituality as me. So whatever. My exboyfrien had the nerve to run up to me talking about how much he missed me. As I told him I wasnt gonna sleep with him the phone calls stopped. Is this how Jamaican men are. I was just a big walking vagina that he could collect to him? Well whatever.
I would never lie to a guy to get sex from him, I would say look your personality sucks, but I would really like to sleep with you. Or, your not the type of person I could see my self long term with, but I would really enjoy having you in my bed. Whatever enough chatter.
I am no longer interested in Jamaican men…..I will not date outside my race, so I guess this means men from the other islands, its worth a shot. The truth is I am terrified of that! I think the intimacy would be great….my heart is beating fast just thinking about it. Im SCARED……IM DRUNK TOO. …
