"Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man."
 -Matthew 15:11

It does hurt I though when I see some pretty, prim and permed white boy walk past I with a red, gold, green headband

This does not seem like questioning.

And what comes out of the mouth's of these men is profanity and cat calls to women. Look brother I hate to judge but sometimes people are wrong. The hurt comes first, the I question.

Seen. I'm surprised to hear you say you've only seen white people doing that though.

 I think of it both ways.  Part of me isn't fond of alot of people around my school wearing the colors as a fashion, but when i have it on, or even a small bracelet of mine with the colors, it helps remind me to keep ital and follow the ways of Jah.  I just wish that the people who use it as a fashion would at least recognize what it is that they are wearing.  Instead, I feel that many just wear it to boast of their ganja use.  its unfortunate

Bless,

Brian

true as well, i wear the colours at school (i am caucasian as well) but all i get is " do you smoke " or " are you black " its sad but i always just tell them to read up and learn, but stereotyping will remain in every society against every group of people.

The way i feel about it is simple, I am not rasta but it has a very large place in my heart, through it i have met an amazing person, a second mum i would never have found without Jahs help. Just to say before i post, i do not wish to give you any the impression I am a Rasta.

Even though I have a large part of Rasta in my heart, I am not angry or whatever with the people that make/sell/buy these articles of clothing or merchandise.

Rasta isnt in the colours, leaves, anything, its in your heart and mind and spirituality.
Rasta isnt in the clothing, its not in the herb itself, Its not a material possession!
so why get angry? there is no reason to.

ATLEAST people are paying attention to the community but in some minds i could agree, its portraying it in a bad way, especially on a nock off summer market. But in any case, Hold your heads high above the crowd, you know yourself that what you represent is your faith, whilst others may look upon you with a biased oppinion of 'stoner' and etc. My message overall is, dont care, hold your head high and teach those to love others and themselves.

If you see these people so much why don't you confront them and teach them a thing or two instead of complaining about it here on the forum? Judging peoples familiarity with scripture based on appearance alone seems prejudice to me.

at times I do, do that. but at times its best to be humble.

i hope someone sees this posts and replies but InI being white.

and telling another white person to take off the colors or something, seems hypocritical sometimes...

why would the color of your skin make you a hypocrite standing up for Rastafari? calling oneself a Rasta and doing nothing is much more hypocritical.

Red stands for bloodshed for freedom in Africa,
yellow for gold and riches
green for fertility of the African country,

and i never wear a shirt with the flagg before becuz i usually wear hip hop Clothing =D
