The writer claims to have written this based on teaching of Bob Marley, Malcom X and several other's with theories on rightous living.
We all know Bob Marley's father was caucasian, so to have that knowledge and then write six principals of being a Rastafarian are: Page 10) HATRED FOR THE WHITE RACE, and 3) Revenge on whites for their wickedness....I was quite appaled and taken aback, since not one Twelve Tribes member I know thinks/lives this way, and many I know in Twelve Tribes are caucasian.
Also, the writer then contradict's himself on page 11, writing: 5) We disapprove and abhor utterly hate, jealousy, envy, deceit, quile, treachery, etc.
So, rastafarians "disapprove of hate"....but on page 10, the first rule is "HATE for the white race"???
Do not waste your time with this book. It is just some slapped together nonsense based on a blend of theories that clearly have no common ground,
Bob Marley is rolling over in his grave over this one~
Read "Kebral Negast" if you want to learn anything about Rastafari.
A skinny book of 50 pages that was the worst $9.00 I spent on a book ever.
I wish I could get my money back. Tbest part is the cover of the book!
