Thanks Ke,
When I first read this speech I was surprised at the depth of understanding coming from a politician.  I ended up reading it a couple times.  After watching it rather than reading it, and seeing how Obama is clearly speaking heartically from experience (instead of reading a paper crafted by professional speech writers), I am even more strongly impressed.  I have had a personal policy of avoiding politics altogether because of the letdown I've had in the past voting or having false expectations, and watching how it is the source of so much animosity between people.  I still do not have much hope for the system, but Ive decided to make an exception to my non-participation policy and vote for Obama if he gets nominated.  This is the first time in a while that Ive watched a long speech and not felt like I needed to go wash.  Is anyone else feeling this vibe in the rasta community?

Forgive me a sinner.

I agree Negus. Still it would be nothing short of a miracle to see a "black" man in power!

Ises,
Obama's pastor still told more truth.

Rastafari
That makes sense since Rev Jeremiah Wright is Obama's spiritual elder in the Christian faith (according to Mr Barak Obama).  If you listened to his speech, Obama did not renounce his elder, in fact he stood firm in uping him. 

Now hear this: the very sermon from Rev Wright that has become so controversial in the mainstream media is Obama's link to Rasta vibe.  Within two minutes of its start, Rev Wright is quoting Psalm 137, and sings the opening verse to the classic Melodians reggae interpretation (By The Rivers of Babylon).

From the sermon:
"words that have been made into anthems and sacred songs both in North America and Jamaica.  40 years ago when I was in college our college choir sang 'By the Waters of Babylon we sat down and wept when we remembered Zion'.  20 years ago almost everyone in the Carribean were singing the Jamaican version "By the rivers of Babylon there we sat down and wept" (using the classic Melodians melody)

He continues on to chant down Babylon and ties it to our modern history.  The controversial sermon is here if you want to hear the half that's never been told by the media:

The small vibes for I man is the children.  The next Generation.  It is overwhelming, this passion to overcome these shortcomings.  In raising the youth we are challenged to rise above what we have been surrounded by all our lives.  Taught to see we are one, then go out into our world and see how the lines have been drawn between us.
  In these up coming months and weeks, it would be nice to see ones reach within to expand on their views of this exciting times.  Change must a come, and the most inspiring change is when we , as individuals, rise above ourselves and look out upon the sea of Bredren and sistren.
  I wonder where all the views are on the positive Innections are?.  Seems the form has been kindda    s l o w.
There is so much to speak on.

  One week has past since this Historic speech.  Aside from the local talks of the implications, also the country wide reactions and polarizations, I still wonder at how this battle (within the same party) has not become the leading topic of shattering the mold of how we have been rasied.  This candiacy of Obama Barak has HUGE signifigance to I man.  Around the world ones can see that the opposition to the leading of this country by a figure such as Obama takes us to the next level.
  The Question is:  Can ones see this future?, or has Babylon got such a shade pulled over the majority eyes?.
more to come. 
  Blessed Love, OneLove

I'm with you rootsridge.
Remember people, he is a politician.
Politicians want power. 
Yes, he might very well be from the heart and truly want to do good and help our world.
But don't become blind because of the words that come out of his mouth!
Don't become a lemming.  That's what most people are these days it seems.

In my opinion, I'll see how true he is if/when he GETS the power he desires.
