so-called 'Rastas' - and I stress the term 'so-called' - decide to use rather highly offensive pejoratives but probably wouldn't like it if someone called them an offensive name?

I guess sporting [some] dreadlocks and wearing red, green and gold tams doesn't always equate to peaceful, intelligent thoughts and language.

Claiming 'Rasta' sure has gone downhill over the years...

Who the dunce cap fit... some just need to stop calling themselves Rasta...

I wonder about the aggressive, bun Fiyah talk as compared to both the personality of Selassie and the teachings of Jesus.

Being as Rasta is not a structured religion, what you consider tenants of the faith differ from others.

It seems if you are going to call yourself something named after a historical person you would at least try to emulate the same characteristics as that person..."try" being the key word.

Makes sense to me. About as much sense as my neighbor Jesus who drinks Corona and Sol on his porch every Sunday and throws the bottles in my yard.

The difference being your neighbor Jesus was named at birth and a personal name whereas "Rasta" is based on Ras Tafari and what some people mindlessly call themselves while acting the complete opposite.

But you already know that and just want to be cynical and argumentative, right Chimino?

I prefer not to be self-righteous by judging other people for how they choose to identify themselves, Jeff.

self-right·eous (slfrchs)
adj.
1. Piously sure of one's own righteousness; moralistic.

I am neither pious nor righteous, so the term wouldn't fit. If a person chose to call themselves a Christian and then acted like an asshole I would make the same critique. That's not self righteous, that's critical thinking.

Jeff u r 1 of the most humble and intelligently thoughtful people I have ever reasoned with. Chimino haven't metcha but u seem like a good dude. Don't get caught up in this tasteless overly re-heated and re-hashed @#$%&-stirring garble. Forward the positive vibes to SNWMF. smileys with beer
