REGGAE AFRICA-“FOR THE HURT OF THE DAUGHTER OF MY PEOPLE AM I HURT. “I AM BLACK, ASTONISHMENT HAS COME OVER ME”. THE WAILING OF THE PEOPLE.

(c) PARTUS SEQUITUR VENTREM- MAMA AFRICA- RAS CARDO REGGAE SPEAKS YOUR TRUTHS.

WRITTEN WITHOUT PREJUDICE:

MY REGGAE MUSIC IS THE ONLY MUSIC TODAY WHICH FOR DECADES SPEAKS ABOUT THE SUFFERINGS OF GOD’S CHILDREN AND THEIR LIBERATION. IT IS THE ONLY SPIRITUAL MUSIC FORCE WHICH TELLS IT LIKE IT IS WITHOUT FEAR OF THE ENEMY.

Walking in the footsteps of JESUS CHRIST and trying to do his works for the people and his Kingdom was never meant to be an easy task.

Christianity today is under serious attack, and Jah messengers of truth face many consequences while they try to work for the redemption of Jah people.

Ask any missionary who has to work in Africa and other places where this is so and let them tell you the realities.

I have written many, and I have said that today- THE DEVIL WALKS AROUND AS AN ANGEL OF LIGHT. BE NOT DECEIVED. GOD IS NOT TO BE MOCKED, NOR DO ANY HARM TO HIS PROPHETS.

It is written- ” For the hurt of the daughter of my people am I hurt, I am black, astonishment has come over me”.

Now, you may have those so-called University professors trying to argue about the meaning of this statement, but as always, they have eyes and see not. They can put their own interpretations to the words and works of Jah.
THE RASTAMAN TAKES IT AS IT IS WRITTEN, NEVER CHANGING THE WORD OF JAH ALMIGHTY.
“IS THERE NO BALM IN GILEAD? IS THERE NO PHYSICIAN THERE?”

When, as a youth in Trench Town, the brethrens, sistrens and I pondered the fate of Jamaica, Africa, and the rest of the world, and what we were gonna do about sending a message, it was not easy, nor was it difficult for me to find an answer, because the mighty works of Jah moves within his people. Our livity was under constant threat.

“FOR A WAILING HAS COME OUT OF ZION”. So it is written, and I have told the world about the wailing of our people, including- MOTHER AFRICA.

My reggae has sent so many songs and messages to the world about Mama Africa. Garnet Silk, Peter Tosh, Culture, Dennis Brown, Burning Spear. Black Uhuru, Wailing Souls, Joe Higgs etc so many too numerous to mention at this time.
I, RAS CARDO AM HERE TO SAY THAT MY REGGAE MUSIC HAS DONE MUCH TO SPEAK OF THE PLIGHT OF AFRICA MORE THAN ANY OTHER MUSIC GENRE.

WE HAVE BEEN THERE AND HAVE SEEN THE SUFFERINGS OF THE PEOPLE. NEVER WERE WE AFRAID TO SPEAK ITS TRUTH. OUR MESSENGERS HAVE BEEN MATRYRED BECAUSE OF THIS- THE NAMES OF -LUCKY DUBE AND OTHERS READILY COMES TO MIND.

JAH GAVE THE WORD AND THE MESSAGES, WE THE MESSENGERS MUST DELIVER IT, AGAINST ALL ODDS.

THE WAILING WAILERS CAME FROM THE WORD. HOW ARE WE SPOILED. WE ARE GREATLY CONFOUNDED, BECAUSE WE HAVE FORSAKEN THE LAND.

THAT FORSAKEN LAND AS WE SEE TODAY IS- MOTHER AFRICA.
IN MY BOOK- REGGAE JAMAICA, THE WAILING OF THE PEOPLE. WRITTEN ON PAGE#44- YOU WILL SEE WHAT RASTAFARI IS.

R A S T A F A R I IS-

REGGAE AGAINST SUFFERING TOTALLY AFFIRMING AFRICANS RIGHTS INDEPENDENTLY.

I HAVE WRITTEN THAT MY REGGAE WILL FREE AFRICA, FOR IT WILL BRING THE JOY WHICH COMETH IN THE MORNING. EVERY NEW DAY BEGINS IN THE DARKNESS OF THE NIGHT BEFORE.

So, as it is written, in the messages of the Kingdom, the musicians always go first. REGGAE MUSICIANS HAVE DONE THIS.

MY TRENCH TOWN REGGAE WILL RESTORE AFRICA TO ITS RIGHTFUL PLACE. FOR MY JEHOVAH IS EVERLASTING STRENGTH. JAH CHANGETH NOT!

THE NATION WHICH CARRIES THE ARK OF THE COVENANT WILL BE FEARED BY MANY NATIONS.

RAS CARDO REGGAE MAKES QUANTUM LEAP TO FREE AFRICA ONCE AND FOR ALL TIME, AND THOUGH THE ENEMIES OF AFRICA DEVISE MANY EVILS TO GET RID OF HER PEOPLE, THEY SHALL NOT PREVAIL.

THOUGH THEY MAY TRY TO BUILD A WALL AROUND AFRICA, IT SHALL NOT STAND.

THEREFORE, TO ALL WHO MAY READ AND UNDERSTAND THIS; MY WORKS AND THE WORKS OF REGGAE MESSENGERS IS BUILT UPON THE FOUNDATIONS OF THE PROPHETS OF OLD AND THE WORD OF JAH ALMIGHTY GOD OF ALL CREATION.

THERE IS, ONE LORD, ONE GOD, ONE BODY, ONE FAITH, ONE FATHER OF US ALL, ONE BAPTISM. WE MUST ENDEAVOR TO KEEP THE UNITY WHICH BINDS US ALL. WE MUST SPEAK LOVE AND PEACE, NOT WAR AND HATE.

FOR THOUGH SOME MAY SEEK THE RICHNESS OF AFRICA, PUTTING IT TO THIER OWN USE, I RAS CARDO MUST LET THE WORLD KNOW THAT AFRICA SPEAKS REGGAE TELLING THE WORLD OF THE UNSEARCHAGEABLE RICHES OF JESUS CHRIST, AND DOES SO WITHOUT FEAR OF ANY MAN UPON PLANET EARTH.

WITH SO MUCH LOVE IN MY HEART FOR AFRICA AND ALL JAH PEOPLE, I KNOW THAT I MUST DECLARE THE DELIVERANCE OF MY PEOPLE IN AFRICA.

PLEASE JOIN ME IN THE PRAYERS FOR THE DELIVERANCE OF AFRICA. PEACE!

AFRICA NOW- FOR THE FIRST TIME IN THE HISTORY HAS IT NOT CONSIDERED AN OPTION TO FORCIBLY TEAR THEM FROM THEIR HOMELAND. TIME TO RETHINK SLAVERY.

(c)Excerpt from- TIME TO RETHINK THE CONSEQUENCES OF SLAVERY- RAS CARDO REGGAE SPEAKS- EBOLAISED AFRICA. THE FEAR AND TREMBLINGS OF THE WORLD.

WRITTEN WITHOUT PREJUDICE

FOR THE FIRST TIME IN THE HISTORY OF THE ENSLAVEMENT OF AFRICAN PEOPLES HAS IT NOT CONSIDERED AN OPTION TO FORCIBLY TEAR AFRICAN PEOPLES FROM THEIR HOMELAND TO THE ENSLAVEMENT OF THE REST OF THE WORLD.

“THEY CANNOT COME, AND WE CANNOT GO”.

This is the message African peoples at home and abroad are pondering at this time.

Although our peoples have been exiled in foreign lands for ages past, this most recent event has brought new light and meaning as to the interdependence of this human race.

WE SHOULD HAVE LEARNT THAT WHAT AFFECTS ONE WILL EVENTUALLY AFFECT ALL.
BUT THOUGH WE HAVE EYES, WE SEE NOT, AND EARS, WE HEAR NOT.

WE HAVE NOT THE WISDOM AND VISION TO SEE THE WORKS OF GOD IN HIS CREATION.

THE SAD TRUTH IN ALL THIS IS- THERE WAS AND IS REALLY NOTHING WRONG WITH AFRICA.
WHATEVER BECOMES WRONG WITH AFRICA IS FROM THE DOINGS OF MEN.

AFRICA HAS BECOME THE SACRIFICIAL LAMB TO THE SLAUGHTER, THE VICTIM OF RAPE, ENSLAVEMENT, AND GENOCIDE FOR AGES.

I hope that all those historians who have written volumes about the enslavement of African peoples and the sufferings and horrors which continues to this day- TAKE NOTE!

EBOLA- and other deadly diseases which now threatens the rest of the world is forcing some slavers to rethink- Africa.

I must wonder what would have been the outcome of slavery had this disease presented itself in those times. My guess is- slavery would never have been so successful.

People in the African diaspora and all African peoples need to take careful note of what is happening as a result of this consequence.

History has shown us what happens when we fail to follow divine providence.

The history of Africa has shown us a continent from which the very earliest forms of life spings. A continent rich in all the natural resources. A continent of peoples who through the ages have suffered and died because of famines, wars, rape and malignant neglect.

A CONTINENT DIVIDED UP BY THE COLONIAL POWERS OF BRITAIN, FRANCE, GERMANY AND OTHERS.

Now, in 2014 we are faced with the- EBOLA FROM WEST AFRICA. This region of Africa comprises seventeen countries, from the smallest- GAMBIA to the largest- NIGERIA.

My Trench Town reggae has been there, and have seen poverty and destruction beyond compare. Most of the people struggle to make a living in a land where oil, cocoa, gold, diamond, cotton, Uranium, phosphate, and a lot of precious metals are abundant.

The poor people work the fields, but have no access to the rewards of what results from the sales and revenues. Sierra Leones brutal civil war was all about the control of its diamonds.

Reggae and Rastafari music has spoken openly about all these ills of Africa for decades past.
From my earliest days of youth in Trench town we knew about the problems in Africa. The reason too for my reggae creation.

FOR THOSE WHO DO NOT KNOW THIS TRUTH- MOST OF THE ANCESTRAL DESCENDANTS IN JAMAICA ARE FROM WEST AFRICA.

To understand West Africa and its complexity one has to fully understand its past history, for in the richness that exists, the living standards of the people have fallen.

SO, WE MUST ASK THE QUESTION, OF WHICH WE ALREADY KNOW THE ANSWER- HOW IS IT THAT IN SO MUCH RICHNESS, THERE IS SO MUCH POVERTY?

My late great reggae brethren- Culture- Joseph Hill sang- “If you dont bring the richness to them, then they will bring the poverty to you”.

Reggae messengers have been singing Africa for a very long time. One of my closest brethrens, the late great- Peter Tosh sang- ” never gonna give it up”. Black Uhuru sings- ” Third world nations sinking deeper in debt, trade all my gold and diamonds for blood tears and sweat”.

Yes, The reggae messengers and Rastafari sings Africa.

MY TRENCH TOWN REGGAE SPEAKS TO THE SUFFERINGS OF THE PEOPLE GLOBALLY.

IT SHOULD NOW BE CLEAR TO ALL THOSE WHO HAVE RAPED AND ABANDONED AFRICA OVER THE YEARS, THAT THIS WAS NOT A GOOD IDEA. FOR NOW, THE HANDS OF JAHFRICA HAS REACHED BACK TO THOSE WHO HAVE ORCHESTRATED ITS DOWNPRESSION.

So as this disease takes its toll, the rest of the world seems out of control, may Jah almighty bless our soul for soon the deliverance of his people will and must unfold.

LET US PRAY FOR THE PEOPLE IN AFRICA AND THE WORLD.

REGGAE AND RASTAFARI HAS SPOKEN THE LANGUAGE OF AFRICA- “IN MY RICHNESS I HAVE TAKEN CARE OF YOU- NOW I WILL SEE WHO WILL TAKE CARE OF ME- FOR I HAVE BEEN LEFT IN POVERTY FOR SO LONG, I HAVE PUT MY MESSAGE IN RAS CARDOS REGGAE SONGS.”- (c) Ras cardo reggae speaks. All rights reserved globally.

HIV, SARS, Now- EBOLA, WHY AFRICA? WOULD SLAVERY HAVE BEEN SUCCESSFUL WITH THESE AROUND?

(c)Excerpt from RAS CARDO- WHY AFRICA. JAH TIME FOR DELIVERANCE HAS COME.
WITHOUT PREJUDICE

PLEASE JOIN ME IN PRAYING FOR MOTHER AFRICA AND ALL THOSE WHO ARE HELPING TO SAVE THE LIVES OF HER PEOPLE

The whole world is now again focussed on mother – AFRICA, but as it always have been- never for the right reasons.

The sufferings of Africa continues in a day and time when the world can now see and track the course of what is evil in the destruction of Africa.

From the killings of the animals, eg. the elephants for their ivory tusks which is sold in huge quantities to the trade in China, the Gold and Diamond, the Oil, precious metals and innocent peoples, the sufferings and plight of Africa goes on unabated.

So, the questions are being asked- WHERE DID IT ALL BEGIN, AND WHERE WILL IT END?

It would have been a terrible curse by the almighty to have afflicted Africa with almost all of the dreaded and deadly diseases known to man.

SO, WE ASK- WHY AFRICA?
We could also ask, – WHO OR WHAT IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS AFFLICTION?

If some should now choose to build a wall around Africa, let me be the first to say that most of us have already done so.

But, the truth is this- no wall built by man will stop what Jah has in store for us, and for the redemption of Africa.

THE WORLD IS NOW REACTING IN A WAY, AS WHEN SOME IN THE KNOW, PANIC OVER WHAT RESULTS IN AN EXPERIMENT GONE WRONG.

I must reflect on what would have been the situation had these deadly viruses surfaced during the times of slavery.

SO, I MUST ASK THE QUESTION- WOULD AFRICAN SLAVERY BE SO SUCCESSFUL- IN A TIME LIKE THIS? I THINK NOT!
MAYBE THE LESSON FROM THIS IS-“TAKE YOUR HANDS OFF AFRICA”, once and for all!

It is sad and lamenting indeed when so many innocent people have to die, so that a cause can be established.

I must keep remembering what my late great mother had said- ” GOD WORKS IN MYSTERIOUS WAYS”.
It is my prayer that for all those who have suffered loss be restored to the love and truths which God has bestowed on us all as children of Africa.

Surely, there is a natural mystic in the air. Those who will listen carefully will hear and the see the light of truth in all this.

Somebody knows the answer and truth as to- WHY AFRICA?

May Jah bless our people and all those who are willing to help save the lives of our children in mother Africa. I RAS CARDO REGGAE SENDS MY LOVE, PRAYER, AND RESPECT KNOWING THAT JAH WILL NEVER GIVE US MORE THAN WE CAN BEAR.(c) RAS CARDO SPEAKS. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED GLOBALLY.

ON YOUR HERITAGE CELEBRATIONS- WE ARE ALL ONE PEOPLE.

Those who wait upon the lord shall renew their strength and spirit they shall mount up with wings like an eagle, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.

And so my Hispanic Heritage peoples, I Ras Cardo reggae extends warmth, love and greetings to you all at this memorable time of your celebration of the fabric of heritage which have kept you mounting like eagles.

The road for us all have not be an easy one and more struggles and obstacles lie ahead, but we shall as a unified force overcome.

Here in these United States we have faced many inequities and injustices. Because of the mixture of our ethnicity we are made to feel inferior to others who meet and greet us with so many prejudices and racial biases.

But , I RAS CARDO( RICARDO)- will tell the world that soon there will be that day when it will be difficult for America to divide us by race , ethnicity, or color of skin.

I RAS CARDO KNOW- THAT MY REGGAE EDUCATION WILL HEAL THIS NATION.

IF AMERICA AND THE REST OF THE WORLD MUST GO ON, THEN THE CO-EXISTENCE OF PEOPLES OF ALL RACE, COLOR, CLASS AND CREED MUST COME AS ONE.
ITS BEEN TOO LONG IN THE ENSLAVEMENT OF OUR PEOPLES.

I WILL DECLARE THAT THE RESPECT WILL COME, FOR MY BROTHERS AND MY SISTERS, FOR MY BRETHRENS IN THE YOLK OF OPPRESSION, FOR THE CHILD WHO KNOWS ONLY HATE AND DESTRUCTION- DELIVERANCE WILL COME. PEACE!
