Can Asians be Rasta?
« on: April 20, 2008, 07:52:31 AM »

Hi, I'm South-East Asian.  . 

My family are catholics, I was born catholic and I got baptized in Catholic Church.   As time goes by I realize that Catholic really isn't for me.   Once a guy from school told me that I'm demonic because I don't believe in Jesus and that I kept learning about Rastafari.   So I wondered what was so demonic about it. 
Well, I didn't care, because I want to Start fresh and learn more about Rastafari. 

Now I know that whites can be Rasta, but can an Asian like me can be Rasta too?
I wonder.  . 

much respect
-Jex

Greetings brother!
"The color of a mans skin is of no more significance than the color of his eyes" - H.I.M Haile I Selassie I.

Color of skin doesn't change who you are, how you act or how you feel. And it surely wont change your bond to the almighty. Do you think Jah put us in groups? Black, white, yellow etc? Or do you think he will only let some of the races see the truth and get the spiritual bond to him that we need?
Ofcourse not.
He created man kind, and he loves us all equally. Anyone with a righteous heart can be Rasta. That guy who told you your "demonic" because you don't believe in Yeshua and that you learned about Rastafari... He's just insecure in himself and judging you to be evil because your dealing with something he don't know anything about. The things he don't know about, he judges very easily. But dont let anyone or anything block your way. There's nothing demonic at all with Rastafari. Jah is not demonic. I may also add that many Rastas believe in Yeshua, in different ways yes, but many do. Some see him as the son of God, some see him as a righteous human being, some see him as Messiah. Personally InI see Christ as the son of Jah, a part of the trinity. Many different beliefs, many different oppinions. You have to find your own truth.
"Seek and you shall find"
But back to the original subject. Yes, ofcourse Asians can be Rasta, just as much as anyone else. Rastafari is not color of skin, its spirituality and livity.
Bless up brother, and keep strong even when the wind is rough!
Jah Rastafari

Well, man thanks for clearing all that for me, I feel a lot better now and I will continue learning more about Rastafari.  It's good to know that hopefully I shall understand more about Rastafari.
Just like you said, I shall seek the truth and I shall find. . .

Ises unto the Most Haile I
  I say that the Iriginal livity of Rastafari is life Iverliving right now within this time.  So from the Itriarchs and the Ila-Archs that first Hail Emperor Haile Selassie I as I God & I King from dat time til this time, it is set and so established.  HIM is an Afreecan Christian Emperor, Her Imperial Majesty is an Afreecan Christian Empress.  This means that Afreeca and her manifestation of the Irator is the image, the hope, the soul & destiny of Rastafari as the groundation of the faith.  Ini deal with works that further that aim, seen.  Now if a next one sights those vibes and is not of Afreecan descent, whom am I to judge?  It is a must to come in huemility, for Imility ie. the lamb only makes the lion stronger.  It is the order that has been set and that is the order I defend straight.

Holy I

Learn about, and call yourself, whatever you want. That said; Rastafari is not something one becomes.
