Rastafari is really a Hindu Christian hybrid concoction. There is lots of information on these facts on the internet. I agree with adamant Rastafari is total garbage, and its removal from the black world is fast approaching. ( thieves,Molester,murderers,drug dealers ) is spot on, along with preaching a philosophy of self hate by advising black people to Not comb their hair, and they worship Haily Selassie as a black god/man when in fact he is a Yemeni/Ethiopian and looks very very Arab= NOT A BLACK MAN

Rastafari is very dangerous for young trusting black minds and should be taken seriously as it is used to hypnotize, confuse and superimpose a twisted foreign culture onto unsuspecting black people all over the globe

Rastafarianism is Freemasonry. It started as one of the earliest Freemason Lodges in Jamaica.

We all miss bob marley. He was one of a kind. So no matter what he was bob marley. Reggea super star. Not bob marley, rastafarian. It was his belife at the time,for him. He was an innovator of reggea. The hair was just a style. You dont have to have dreads to love reggea. You dont have to act like bob. Just be yourself. Be an innovator, not a replicator.

Rastas belive that there better than you if your not a rasta. There is no such thing as a true rasta. All rastas are are retards with dredlocks. Think about it. They dont bow to vanity, but hairstyle is vanity! Preach good and righteousness ,but most rastas are thieves,Molester,murderers,drug dealers,and have no idea who they really are. Why be born different from everone and be born unique, if you just do what someone else did because it was trendy. Its just a hair style. A silly one too. Full of bugs. Weighs alot. Looks gross. Not to mention its just a trend. There is no hard facts that connect their belief's, to having those gross poo locks growing out of your head. Seriously, iv lived with black people my whole life. I grew up in the Caribbean. Iv been around alot of idiots with loks. Their pretty dumb. They think if you dont have dreads you dont understand the meaning of good. That meaning is only reserved for the dreadys. Wrong. There are lots of good righteous people without dreads. Rastas piss me off. Do they have any meaning behind following a hairstyle and calling it a religion that is based on fact, not belief. Just like Christianity, its based on word of mouth,fantasy, and a bunch of bullshit that happened to someone else many ,many years ago. Slavery trade is over, and no one is responsible for the actions of the last generation before them. So you cant put your life on a train of belief that's already long gone. Live in the now. If you know who you are, you dont need to ask for guidance to help you find out why your here. The answer lies within you if you seek to know who you are,not what you are.

Its very sad when I see people reason this way. This thread was created to educate people in the way of the rasta, and now you come in here to disrespect their belief!!

Anyway, its like madlady don said, If you feel your religion/way-of-life makes you a better person then Jah guidiance and blessin be with you. The way of the rasta teaches peace and equality.

I know you are better than this.

What makes whatever it is you believe in better/more deserving of glory than Emperor Haile Salasie I, ras Tafari. Between your god and Salasie I, who is more imaginary?!

Careful when you shoot a gun in a room with curved walls, it may just ricochette and hit you right in the Bottom.

Jah bless!!

I thought rastafarians are retards. . .

In that case they believe in imaginary things that don't count as superior or worthy of glory.

In 1974, Emperor H. Selasie visited Jamaica, during the visit, journalists asked him if he was the Messiah to come. He made no comment.

I guess the judeo-christian God is the only one worthy of glory.

@ Evalasthn & Madlady

Much respect for educating them all, on the ethics of a true rastaman. I cant call myself a true rastafarian, but I am a staunch believer of the rasta.

Its a shame that some of the so called rastafari's in Nigeria have now made a honourable way of life into a thing of mockery.

JAH BLESS I and I.

@ madlady, attached are Rasta and Ghana flags, very identical. Yes there are real Rastas in Nigeria but them are very few. even some few Jamaican Bobo Ashanti's live here. Seems you like Rastas or you enjoy reggae music. Bless up

I see some folks here ovastand (understand) what RASTARAI is, big up to madlady. To sum it up, RASTARAI is not a religion but a way of life that is pure, simple, full of love and respect, peace and Inity (unity). Most Nija people that pose as Rasta are really fake but real ones are around still. In west Africa, I think Ghana is where you'll find most real Rastas ( their National color is the RASTAFARI color ). Rastafari is not about Dreadlock and Ganja (not all rastas are on dread and ganja, and not all dread ganja smokers are rastas).

It is extremely important to recognize the fact that Rastafari emerges out of the depressed social situation in which black people found themselves in the 1920s and 30s. It was during that period of the great depression that the world saw the rise of the greatest organizer of people the world, the late great Marcus Mosiah Garvey.

It is based on the writings of Marcus Garvey that inspires the emergence of Rastafari.

Haile Selassie’s title was Ras Tafari in addition to Lord of Lords, King of Kings and Conquering Lion of Judah all led to the belief that he was the reincarnation of god.

Rastafarians are spiritual followers of the late Emperor Haile Sellassie of Ethiopia who they believe was their messiah who came to liberate their minds from bondage of slavery.They based their faith on the teachings of marcus garvey and when the Ethiopians succeeded in driving out the italian army that invaded ethiopia in world war 2 (with US and british help) they saw it as a sign that he was the lion of judah.

But like the previous poster pointed out the ones in nigeria just use the cover to sell weed and launch musical careers

Below are some of the main foundational beliefs of Rastafarians;

•Rastafarians believe that God is a spirit and that this spirit was manifested in King H.I.M. Emperor Haile Selassie I.

•Rastafarians believe that Jesus was a direct descendant of King David and was black.

•Rastafarians believe that the Ethiopian Solomonic Dynasty is a direct representation of King David.

•Rastafarians believe that they are the original Lost Tribes of Israel that were once scattered by Babylon until the appearance of His Imperial Majesty Emperor Haile Selassie I.

•Rastafarians believe that God will return them to Zion (Rastafarians refer to Ethiopia as Zion).

•Rastafarians believe that Ethiopia is the Promised Land and that it is Heaven on Earth.

•The White Man took them away from the Promised Land (Ethiopia/Zion) as slaves to Babylon and a Babylonian system. (Please note that some Rastafarians will say Pink people vs. White people)

Some of the rastas we find in Naija don't really know what to belief. They are fake

They follow the Great Ethiopian Emperor Haile Sellasie who was also called Ras Tafari.
