WAY BACK- BEING BLACK IN THE WEST, BUT I ASK-WAS IT THE INTENTION OF THE SLAVEMASTERS TO SET US FREE ONCE WE WERE FORCIBLY DRAGGED TO THE WEST? I THINK NOT! MY REGGAE AND RASTAFARI SPEAKS THE TRUTH.

EXCERPT (c) THE ENSLAVEMENT OF BLACK PEOPLE- WHOSE IDEA WAS IT, AND WHY? WHAT WAS THE INTENT OF THE ENSLAVERS?

WRITTEN WITHOUT PREJUDICE

CAVEAT: FOR THOSE WHO HAVE A PROBLEM RESPECTING THE TRUTH. I ASK THAT YOU READ NO FURTHER.

FOR ALL THE HISTORY BOOKS WRITTEN ON SLAVERY, YOU WILL  BE HARD PRESSED TO SEE ANY ASKING THE QUESTION I HAVE STATED ABOVE IN EXCERPT.

WELL, MY REGGAE ASKS QUESTIONS IN THE SEARCH TO FIND THE TRUTH. IT IS THIS MISSION WHICH MAKES IT MOST FEARED AND SOMETIMES REVERED.

FOR THOUGH WE ALL WANT TO KNOW THE TRUTH, IT IS THE CONSEQUENCES OF THE REVELATIONS WHICH CAUSES US TO FEAR. FOR MOST OF US DO NOT WANT THE EFFECTS TO GO AGAINST OUR WISHES.

WE BUILD ELABORATE HALLS AND COURTS OF JUSTICE IN WHICH WE GATHER TO ASCERTAIN TRUTH. WE HAVE JUDGES AND JURIES TO RULE ON TRUTH EVIDENCE, AND YET WITH ALL THAT, WE STILL REVERE AND FEAR, AND YES, WE LIE.

IF WE SEE A GUILTY ACT, OUR COURTS SYSTEM IS STRUCTURED TO FIND- THE GUILTY MIND BEHIND IT.

THERE IS A LATIN MAXIM- ACTUS NON FACIT REUM. NISI MENS SIT REA.

LITERALLY THIS MEANS- “THE ACT DOES NOT MAKE ONE GUILTY UNLESS THE MIND IS GUILTY.”.

WE OFTEN HEAR LEGALESE AND TERMS THROWN AROUND SUCH AS- THE BURDEN OF PROOF- BEYOND A REASONABLE DOUBT-ETC, ETC.

WELL, I AM NOT AT THIS POINT GOING INTO ALL THAT DETAIL- FOR THE QUESTION I ASK IS THIS:

WHAT WAS THE INTENT OF THOSE WHO CHOSE TO ENSLAVE BLACK PEOPLE , AND WAS IT THEIR INTENT TO SET US FREE ONCE WE CAME TO THE WEST?

UNTIL BLACKS IN AMERICA CAN SIT FACE TO FACE WITH WHITES AND HAVE A PEACEFUL HEART TO HEART DISCUSSION TO RESOLVE THIS ISSUE OF THE QUESTIONS ASKED, THERE WILL BE NO END TO HATE, RACISM, BIGOTRY, AND ALL THE SOCIAL ILLS WHICH STEMS FROM THIS CANCER.

I WILL ALSO SAY THIS TRUTH- BEFORE I CAME TO AMERICA I KNEW MORE ABOUT SLAVERY IN AMERICA THAN MOST BORN AND RAISED BLACK AND WHITE AMERICA KNEW.

OVER THE YEARS, I HAVE LEARNED THAT MOST OF THE BLACK HISTORY IN AMERICA WAS BOTH HIDDEN, TWISTED, AND SKEWED.

SO MANY BLACKS IN AMERICA HAVE LAMENTED TO ME ABOUT THE LACK OF THIS KNOWLEDGE AND TRUTH ABOUT THEIR ANCESTRAL HISTORY.

WHITES WHO ALIGN THEMSELVES WITH THE BLACK STRUGGLES ARE, IN MOST CASES AFRAID TO OPENLY SAY OR DO ANYTHING.

BLACKS WHO ALIGN THEMSELVES WITH THE WHITE CAUSE ALSO TEND TO KEEP A SILENCE AND A DISTANCE SO AS TO AVOID DETECTION.

AMERICA, HAS BEEN A POLARIZED COUNTRY FOR A VERY LONG TIME.

YES!, I SAY THAT AMERICA IS BI-POLAR. BUT HOW LONG MUST WE ALLOW THIS POLARIZATION TO CONTINUE?

WHY ARE WE CARRYING THIS INHERITANCE  OF HATE AS A GENERATIONAL CURSE?

THE RECENT FRATERNITY INCIDENT IN THE OKLAHOMA COLLEGE CAMPUS IS NO SURPRISE TO ME.

IT IS WISE FOR WHITES TO KNOW OR TO REMEMBER THAT WHEN CAUCASIANS IN EUROPE WERE BEING OPPRESSED THEY FLED TO PLACES IN THE WEST, LIKE AMERICA AND CANADA.

THE HISTORY OF THE MAYFLOWER AND ITS VOYAGES SPEAKS VOLUMES. THE NEW ENGLAND STATES BEARS THE EVIDENCE TO THIS DAY.

THOSE WHO FLED TO JAMAICA SAW THE ARAWAK INDIANS WHEN THEY GOT THERE, AND GUESS WHAT, THEY SLAUGHTERED THEM AND TOOK THEIR LANDS AWAY. THEN THE PLUNDERING PIRATES FROM OTHER COUNTRIES SUCH AS SPAIN JOINED THE FEAST, AND CALLED THE PLACE- THE CARIBBEAN.

THOSE WHO CAME TO AMERICA SAW THE INDIANS AS THE INDIGENOUS PEOPLE, AND WE ALL KNOW THE HISTORY.

IT IS IMPORTANT TO KNOW THAT AMERICA DID NOT COME TO BE AMERICA, WITHOUT THE SHEDDING OF BLOOD..

SO, WHY DO YOU THINK THE WORD – ” FREEDOM”- IS SO IMPORTANT TO AMERICA TODAY?

THOSE WHO FLED TO AMERICA KNEW OR FELT WHAT IT MEANS TO BE ENSLAVED OR OPPRESSED.

SO, MY CHALLENGE TO ALL BLACKS AND WHITES IN AMERICA IS THIS:

SEARCH ALL THE HISTORY BOOKS AND YOU WILL NEVER FIND ANYTHING ABOUT THE INTENT OF THE SLAVE MASTERS TO FREE BLACKS WHEN THEY COME TO THE WEST.

THEREFORE, IF THE INTENT WAS NEVER TO FREE US THEN, WHY SHOULD WE THINK THAT IT IS THE INTENT TO FREE US NOW?

SO, MY REGGAE AND RASTAFARI ASK- HOW LONG IN SLAVERY?

MY BRETHREN, THE LATE GREAT RASTAMAN- CULTURE(JOSEPH HILL), SINGS- ” TOO LONG IN SLAVERY”

KNOWING THIS TRUTH SHOULD LEAD US TO A POINT WHERE WE EARNESTLY SEEK SOME FORM OF RECONCILIATION WHICH IS WHAT MY -REGGAE EDUCATION- AIMS TO BRING INTO FRUITION- FOR A HEALING OF THE NATION.

BLACKS MUST NEVER FORGET THEIR TRUE HISTORY. THEY MUST RESPECT AND EMBRACE IT WITHOUT FEAR FROM ANYONE.

JAMAICANS HAVE TAUGHT THOSE AMERICANS WILLING TO LEARN, JUST THAT.

WHITES CAN DO THE SAME ABOUT THEIRS, BUT UNTIL THAT DAY WHEN SUCH A DIALOGUE OCCURS, THE CONFLICTS WILL CONTINUE.

MY REGGAE SINGS- “HOW CAN WE SING, THE LORD’S SONG IN A STRANGE LAND?”.

I RAS CARDO SAY- IN THE SUFFERINGS OF OUR PEOPLE, MY REGGAE SEEKS TO FIND THE ANSWERS TO ALL THE QUESTIONS WE ASK, KNOWING  THE TRUTH  THAT SOME OF THE ANSWERS WILL BE HIDDEN IN THE PAST.

MY REGGAE KNOWS THAT TO LIBERATE IS TO EDUCATE. THAT IS WHY I SAY, (c) A REGGAE EDUCATION FOR A HEALING OF THE NATION.

(c) RAS CARDO SPEAKS. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED GLOBALLY.

BIOTECHNOTYRANNY- IN THE FOOD INDUSTRY WHILE POOR PEOPLE STARVE TO DEATH. IT IS HERE, BUT ARE WE GOING TO ALLOW IT TO CONTINUE? MY REGGAE SINGS ABOUT IT, AND ASKS THE QUESTIONS

EXCERPT (c) BIOTECHNOTYRANNY IN THIS TECHNOTYRANNICAL SOCIETY.

WITHOUT WARNING:

JAMAICA BEWARE!

WHEN ENOUGH ISN’T ENOUGH FOR THE ENEMY.

THE PLAN IN BABYLON, IS TO KILL THEM BEFORE THEY GROW.

YEARS AGO WHEN MY TRENCH TOWN BRETHRENS AND I LOOKED AT THE WAY THINGS WERE GOING IN JAMAICA AND WE DECIDED TO SING SONGS AND PLAYED MUSIC TO GET THE WORLD’S ATTENTION, THOSE WHO BECAME OFFENDED BY THE TRUTH BEGAN A RELENTLESS AND DEADLY CAMPAIGN TO GET RID OF US.

FOR THOSE WHO WOULD DARE TO THINK THAT WE WERE AFRAID OF THE ENEMIES, I ASK YOU TO THINK AGAIN.

WE CREATED A MUSIC TO SEND OUR MESSAGES IN A PLACE AND A TIME WHEN OUR LIVES WERE SEVERELY THREATENED. BEING AFRAID OF THE ENEMY WAS NEVER AN OPTION.

DID NOT BOB MARLEY TOLD YOU- ‘ GOOD FRIENDS WE HAVE LOST ALONG THE WAY”.

AND SO WE CONTINUED ON OUR JOURNEY TO DO WHAT WAS RIGHT FOR THE BETTERMENT OF THE PEOPLE.

JAMAICA IS STILL CONSIDERED A THIRD WORLD COUNTRY, AND IN THE EYES OF THOSE WHO WANT TO KEEP IT THAT WAY, ALWAYS BEGGING OTHERS FOR FOOD, MEANS THAT THE PEOPLE WHO WISH TO OVERCOME THIS ENSLAVEMENT WILL NEVER SEE A BETTER DAY.

HOW MANY REGGAE SONGS HAVE YOU HEARD SPEAKING ABOUT THE SUFFERINGS OF THE PEOPLE AND THE INABILITY OF THE PEOPLE TO MAKE IT FROM DAY TO DAY?

I REMEMBER WHEN THE TRAINS USED TO RUN FROM THE RURAL COUNTRY PARTS OF THE ISLAND INTO THE CITY OF KINGSTON BRINGING THE FARMERS AND HIGGLERS TO THE CORONATION MARKET, AND REDEMPTION GROUND MARKETS FOR SATURDAY MORNINGS -MARKET DAY.

MY MOTHER AND I WOULD GO THERE TO BUY WHAT WE COULD BARELY AFFORD FOR FOOD.

THEN ONE DAY, THE TRAINS STOPPED RUNNING, AND THAT WAS THE END OF ALL THAT.

TO THIS DAY NO ONE SEEMS TO FULLY UNDERSTAND WHY, AND THE POOR FARMERS AND FOOD HIGGLERS HAD TO FIND OTHER WAYS TO SURVIVE.

THEN CAME THE IMPORTATION OF FOOD FROM FOREIGN LANDS LIKE THE USA, CANADA, CHINA, UK AND SOME PARTS OF EUROPE. WITH NO STRICT GOVERNMENTAL CONTROL AND FOOD SAFETY PLANS IN PLACE, THE PEOPLE ARE BEING FED WHAT CAN BE RIGHTLY CALLED POISON.

MY BRETHREN LEGHORN COGHILE, PETER TOSH, AND OTHERS HAVE SENT THE MESSAGES OF THE PROBLEM  OF POVERTY- LACK OF FOOD- AND STARVATION TO THE WORLD.

PETER TOSH SANG- ” MILLION BABIES SUFFERING FROM MALNUTRITION”.

LEGHORN  WROTE- ” THEM BELLY FULL, BUT WE HUNGRY”. THEN SHARED IT WITH BOB MARLEY WHO TOOK IT TO THE WORLD STAGE.

LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING, I WAS RIGHT THERE WITH THEM WHEN THIS WAS DONE.

NOW, I SEE WHERE JAMAICA IS LOOKING TO BE A PLAYER IN THE GANGJAGRICULTURAL  BOOM WHICH IS ABOUT TO TAKE OFF.

SO, I ASK JAMAICA- WHAT ABOUT THE FOOD FOR THE POOR PEOPLE?

I MUST ASK JAMAICA,- ARE YOU GOING TO ALLOW THE GREEDY, WICKED, MULTINATIONAL BIOTECHNOTYRANNICAL CORPORATIONS TO SEND THEIR UNSAFE FOOD TO THE PEOPLE?

JAMAICA- ARE YOU GOING TO BE FOOLED AND BRIBED BY THESE EVIL AND NEFARIOUS ONES WHOSE HIDDEN AGENDA IS TO SEEK UNRESTRAINED PROFITS, NOT GIVING A DAMN ABOUT WHOM THEY DESTROY IN THE PROCESS?

JAMAICA HAS ENOUGH ARABLE LAND TO GROW ENOUGH SAFE FOOD TO FEED THE PEOPLE.

I HAVE SEEN THE FERTILE LANDS IN JAMAICA DESTROYED WHILE THE POOR FARMERS ARE STRATEGICALLY FORCED TO GIVE UP FARMING BECAUSE THEY HAVE NO MEANS TO FIGHT THESE VAMPIRES IN THE COURTS.

REGGAE AND RASTAFARI KNOW THE TRUTH TO YOUR DECEPTIONS.

TO CONTROL THE LIVES OF POOR PEOPLE, YOU KNOW YOU HAVE TO CONTROL THEIR FOOD SUPPLY, AND YET, WHEN THEY ASK YOU FOR WATER, YOU GIVE THEM GALL TO DRINK.

THE FACT THAT YOU SEE THEM STARVING MEANS NOTHING TO YOU.

PEOPLE STARVE BECAUSE OF POVERTY. PEOPLE REMAIN IN POVERTY BECAUSE THEY HAVE NO MONEY OR THE MEANS TO ACQUIRE WEALTH.

PEOPLE DO NOT STARVE BECAUSE OF LACK OF FOOD. THEY STARVE BECAUSE THEY HAVE NOT THE MONEY OR MEANS TO GET FOOD.

BIOTECHNOLOGY IN THE TECHNOTYRANNICAL ENGINEERING OF FOOD WILL NOT HELP POOR PEOPLE, AND WILL NEVER WORK TO BENEFIT THE JAMAICAN PEOPLE.

THE SOCIOPOLITICAL ASPECTS OF POVERTY TO CONTROL PEOPLE HAVE BEEN WELL DOCUMENTED.

BUT HOW LONG CAN YOU FOOL THE PEOPLE?

WE HAVE SEEN A WORLD DOMINATED BY KILLINGS, GREED, HATE, WICKEDNESS, TECHNOTYRANNY,  POVERTY AND FEAR.

SO, WHAT ELSE IS LEFT?- CANNIBALISM AND BARBARISM- PEOPLE EATING EACH OTHER IN THE STREETS?

REGGAE AND RASTAFARI KNOW THAT SURVIVAL IS CONTROLLED BY DIVERSITY, AND THAT DIVERSITY DETERMINES SURVIVAL, BUT SURVIVAL IS NOW THREATENED BY THE CORPORATE ORIENTED GREED, PROFIT AND WICKEDNESS MONOCULTURE.

I , RAS CARDO SAY- WOE TO THE CORPORATE VAMPIRES WHO SEEK THE PATENTING OF HUMAN LIFE. THERE WILL BE NO PLACE TO RUN AND HIDE FROM THE WRATH OF JAH ALMIGHTY.

I, RAS CARDO SPEAKS FOR THE SAFETY OF THE PEOPLE. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED GLOBALLY..

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

MY REGGAE ASKS QUESTIONS IN THE SEARCH FOR TRUTH. IT IS THE ONLY GENRE OF MUSIC WHICH DOES THAT, AND THOSE WHO FEAR THE REVELATIONS TARGETS THE MESSENGERS.

EXCERPT (c) HE THAT CARRIES THE ARK OF THE COVENANT WILL BE FEARED BY ALL NATIONS.

RAS CARDO REGGAE IS THE ARK OF THE COVENANT FOR JAH PEOPLE.

THIS IS THE SAME WORD WHICH HE HAS COMMANDED TO A THOUSAND GENERATIONS.

IF THE REVELATIONS OF TRUTH WAS NOT SUCH A DANGEROUS THING, THEN THOSE WHO GO TO COURTS TO SO- CALLED ” TESTIFY UNDER OATH”- WOULD NOT BE SURROUNDED BY SO MANY ARMED GUARDS.

THE SYSTEM EXPECTS ANYONE AND ANYTHING TO SUDDENLY ERUPT. HOW MANY COURT ROOM FIGHTS AND BRAWLS HAVE YOU SEEN?

HOW MANY PERJURORS HAVE YOU SEEN?.

IF TRUTH IS NOT  WHAT WE SEEK, THEN WHY HAVE THE COURTS?

SO MANY QUESTIONS, SO FEW ANSWERS.

AND SO, MY REGGAE KEEPS SEARCHING TO BRING THE TRUTH TO LIGHT FOR ALL THE WORLD TO SEE. NO OTHER MUSIC DOES THAT.

” QUESTIONS MORE THAN ANSWERS, MORE THAN I CAN SAY. TAKES MORE THAN A LIFETIME TO SAY HOW WE FEEL TODAY”- DON CARLOS, GARTH DENNIS ORIGINAL BLACK UHURU.

THOSE WHO FEAR REGGAE REVELATIONS, FEARS TRUTH REVELATIONS.

INSTEAD OF DEALING WITH THE MESSAGE THEY HATE THE MESSENGERS.

BUT, DO YOU HATE THE POSTMAN FOR BRINGING YOU THE MAIL?

AND, EVEN IF THE TRUTH SPEAKS ABOUT YOU PERSONALLY, WHY DO YOU HATE THE MESSENGER?

SO, TODAY I RAS CARDO SAY TO ALL THE SISTERS AND BROTHERS TO REMEMBER THAT JAH HAS GIVEN US POWER OVER THE ENEMY, AND NOTHING SHALL BY ANY MEANS HURT YOU.

SO, I PRAY THEE-

I THANK THEE O FATHER, GOD OF HEAVEN AND EARTH, EARTH’S RIGHTFUL RULER, THAT THOU HAST HID THESE TRUTHS FROM THE WISE AND PRUDENT, AND HAS NOW REVEALED THEM UNTO US. EVEN SO, WE KNOW THAT MANY PROPHETS AND KINGS HAVE DESIRED TO SEE THOSE THINGS WHICH HAS BEEN REVEALED UNTO US, AND HAVE NOT SEEN THEM. FOR AS JONAS WAS A SIGN UNTO HIS PEOPLE, SO SHALL THE SON OF MAN,–JAH ALMIGHTY, BE UNTO THIS GENERATION.I PRAY THEE O JAH, SELAH.

IF AMERICA DOES NOT POLICE THE WORLD, THEN WHO ELSE CAN/WILL? IN AN AGE WHEN TECHNOTYRANNY IS IN EVERY SOCIETY, A NEW AND DANGEROUS FRONTIER BRINGS ITS CHALLENGES. LOVE CONQUERS ALL..

EXCERPT (c) THE TECHNOTYRANNICAL SOCIETY- WHO CHECKS THE CHECKER?

WITHOUT PREJUDICE

THIS IS A TIME WHERE WE ARE WITNESSING THE FORCES OF EVIL AIMED AT DESTROYING ANYTHING THAT IS OF GOOD.

AMERICA HAS BEEN IN A MOST ENVIABLE POSITION OF BEING A SUPER POWER, HATED BY SOME, DESPISED BY OTHERS.

WE ARE APPROACHING A POINT IN OUR HISTORY WHERE REASONING AND DIPLOMACY HAS NO EFFECT IN APPEALING TO THE MINDS AND HEARTS OF MEN.

WHENEVER I SEE PEOPLE PLAYING THE COLOR OF SKIN CARD AGAINST EACH OTHER, I SHOW THEM THE REALITY AND TRUTH IN A QUESTION WHICH NONE CAN OR DESIRE TO TRULY ANSWER, NAMELY-

WHO HAD THE CONTROL OVER WHAT SKIN COLOR THEY WERE BORN WITH?

THE ANSWER IS CLEAR- NO ONE! SO WHY ARE WE FUSSING OVER SOMETHING WE MOST SURELY AGREE ON.

WHEN WE SHOUT FREEDOM, SOME SHOUT ENSLAVEMENT.

I WILL SAY THIS TO AMERICANS WHO HAVE NEVER TRAVELED ABROAD AND SPENT TIMES IN OTHER COUNTRIES LISTENING AND LEARNING THE WAYS OF THE PEOPLES OF OTHER CULTURES.

MOST OF THOSE WHO CHANT HATRED TO AMERICA, DO NOT NECESSARILY HATE AMERICA. DO YOU KNOW WHAT THEY REALLY HATE?

THEY HATE THE FREEDOM THAT IS AMERICA.

THEY HATE THE PROSPERITY THAT IS AMERICA. THEY HATE THE OPPORTUNITY THAT IS AMERICA.

THEY VEHEMENTLY DESPISED THE ARROGANCE THAT IS AMERICA.

I AM SURE YOU HAVE NEVER HEARD ANYONE TOLD YOU THIS BEFORE. THE REASON IS CLEAR, SOME PEOPLE CAN AND WILL NOT WRITE WHAT I WRITE IN TRUTH.

IT IS MY FIRM BELIEF THAT IF AMERICA COULD TRANSPOSE SOME OF ITS ARROGANCE INTO CHANNELS WHICH FOSTER LOVE, AND MAYBE LAUGHTER, THEN POLITICAL DIPLOMACY WOULD EASILY BECOME A THING OF THE PAST.

SHOWING AND GIVING LOVE DOES NOT MEAN THAT YOU ARE WEAK AND AFRAID OF YOUR ENEMIES.

AS A MATTER OF FACT, IT SHOWS MORE STRENGTH THAN YOU COULD IMAGINE.

WHEN IT IS WRITTEN, THAT YOU SHOULD LOVE YOUR ENEMIES, IT SAID NOTHING ABOUT BEING WEAK.

THE HUMAN SPIRIT, BEING WHAT IT IS, HAVE A HARD AND DIFFICULT TIME LOVING THE ENEMY.

IT TAKES MORE STRENGTH TO LOVE THAN TO HATE. IT IS WHAT IS EASY CAUSES MORE PAIN AND SUFFERING.

MOST PEOPLE TODAY, ANYWHERE, ARE TRYING TO FIND THEMSELVES. SOME HAVE DEVELOPED A SORT OF LOVE/HATE RELATIONSHIP WITH AMERICA.

AMERICA HAS BEEN THE POLICE IN PLACES WHERE IT SHOULD HAVE NEVER TROD, AND THE WORKS WHICH WAS ONCE ITS BLESSINGS HAVE BECOME ITS BURDENS.

IT HAD ITS UPS AND DOWNS, FAILURES, SUCCESSES, REGRETS, AND CASUALTIES, BUT THE SPIRIT OF AMERICA NOW NEEDS TO BE REJUVENATED, AND INVIGORATED.

ITS MORAL COMPASS NEEDS TO BE RESET.

THIS IS A NEW DAY, A NEW TIME, A NEW FEELING, A NEW AWARENESS. THE MATTER IS MOST URGENT.

BUT, THE QUESTION I ASK YOU, AGAIN IS:

WHO WILL POLICE THE WORLD IN THE PURSUIT OF PEACE, IF AMERICA FAILS TO DO SO?

THE INHERITANCE OF HATE. WHERE IS ALL THIS LEADING US? -NEVER IN THE HISTORY OF THE AMERICAN PRESIDENCY HAS THE FIRST FAMILY BOURNE SUCH ABUSE AND CONTEMPT. SO I ASK,- WHAT IS YOUR MESSAGE AMERICA?

EXCERPT (c) THE INHERITANCE OF HATE- RAS CARDO SPEAKS TO AMERICA.

WRITTEN WITHOUT PREJUDICE

CAVEAT: DO NOT READ THIS IF YOU CANNOT HANDLE THE TRUTH.

FROM THE COLLEGE CAMPUSES AND FRAT HOUSES-(SAE etc.)

THE PASTORS AND CHURCH PREACHERS ON OR OFF TELEVISION.

THE KILLINGS OF UN- ARMED YOUNG BLACK YOUTHS BY WHITE POLICE OFFICERS WHO ARE SUPPOSED TO ” SERVE AND PROTECT”.

BUT. I HAVE SPOKEN TO SOME WHITE COPS WHO DO NOT GO ALONG WITH ALL THIS MESS, BUT ARE AFRAID TO SPEAK OUT IN TRUTH.

THE U.S SUPREME COURT MAKING POLITICAL DECISIONS. THE COURT NOW HAS ULTIMATE LEGISLATIVE POWERS, INSTEAD OF THE LEGISLATURE. POLITICAL PROBLEMS ARE BEING RESOLVED AS JUDICIAL ONES.

EVEN THE HIGHEST COURT OF THE LAND HAS SHOWN ITS TRUE COLOR.

SO, WHAT IS YOUR MESSAGE AMERICA? WHAT IS YOUR MESSAGE TO BLACK AMERICA, AND TO THOSE WHO HAVE MULTIRACIAL ETHNICITIES?

HOW MANY MORE MARCHES FROM SELMA TO WHEREVER WILL BE NECESSARY?

HOW MANY MORE PEOPLE HAVE TO DIE BEFORE WE SEE THE LIGHT OF TRUTH?

HOW MANY MORE HATE EMAILS AND MESSAGES  WILL BE SENT TO THE IST ELECTED BLACK PRESIDENT OF OUR NATION?

HOW MANY MORE TIMES WILL WE HAVE TO – HOLD HANDS –  MARCH, AND SING- WE SHALL OVERCOME SOME DAY?

BEFORE I LEGALLY CAME TO AMERICA, I KNEW MUCH ABOUT AMERICA THAN AMERICA KNEW ABOUT ITSELF.. OVER THE YEARS I HAVE SEEN AMERICA, ITS PEOPLE, ITS STRUGGLES, AND HAVE BEEN TRYING MY BEST TO BRING A HEALING TO THE HURT AND TO SHOW LOVE TO ITS PEOPLE, NOT HATE.

MY WORKS BEARS A TESTAMENT OF THIS TRUTH.

WHAT I KNOW ABOUT AMERICA AND ITS PEOPLE SPEAKS VOLUMES.

THE TRUE HISTORY OF BLACK PEOPLE IN THE WESTERN WORLD SHOWS US ONE BASIC TRUTH- A QUESTION, NO NEWS MEDIA OR HISTORIAN HAS EVER SPOKEN OPENLY  ABOUT.

THE QUESTION WE MUST ANSWER AND RESOLVE IS THIS:

WAS  IT THE INTENT OF THOSE WHO ENSLAVED US AND BROUGHT US HERE IN THE WEST TO SET US FREE?

ANYONE WHO ANSWERS THIS QUESTION IN THE AFFIRMATIVE IS A LIAR.

FOR BLACKS IN AMERICA TO ASSUME THAT THE INTENT OF THEIR CAPTORS, ABDUCTORS, AND ENSLAVERS TO SET THEM FREE ONCE THEY CAME TO AMERICA IS A FATAL MISTAKE.

TO THIS VERY DAY, THERE ARE SOME IN AMERICA WHO TENACIOUSLY HOLD ON TO THIS HATE AND INHUMANITY..

SLAVERY IN THE WEST HAS THREE SOURCES OF ITS EVIL PROCUREMENT- THE U.K., AMERICA, THE WEST INDIES.

FOR ONE TO UNDERSTAND THE SOURCE OF RACISM AND HATE IN AMERICA TODAY. ONE MUST ALSO KNOW THE TRUTHS BEHIND SLAVERY.

WHEN THE MASTER ENSLAVER LOOKS IN THE MIRROR, HE SEES HIMSELF, BUT WHEN HE LOOKS OUTSIDE OF HIMSELF AND ON HIS PLANTATION HE SEES BLACK.

BLACKNESS TO HIM TRANSLATES INTO A MEANS FOR ACQUIRING WEALTH- TODAY, LIKE IN SPORTS DOMINATED BY BLACK ATHLETES, BUT OWNED BY WHITES. ITS NOT A PLANTATION THING ANYMORE

THE MENTALITY AND INTENT IS THE SAME. ITS JUST ANOTHER FIELD TO PLAY THE GAME.

BUT, SINCE BLACK IS NEVER REGARDED  AS A LIVING HUMAN BEING, MAKES IT ALL THE MORE EASILY FOR HIS DETACHMENT AND HIS ENSLAVEMENT.

WHAT I SEE HAPPENING IN MISSOURI TODAY IS NOT SURPRISING TO ME. HOW MANY BLACKS IN AMERICA KNOW AND UNDERSTAND THE – DRED SCOTT CASE OF MARCH 1857?

DRED SCOTT, A BLACK MAN IN MISSOURI TRIED TO GET HIS FREEDOM BUT WAS NOT SUCCESSFUL IN DOING SO, BECAUSE AS A SLAVE, HE COULD NOT CONSIDER HIMSELF AS BEING FREE. I WILL LEAVE THE SORDID DETAILS FOR LATER.

IT HAS BEEN 158 YEARS TO DATE, AND THIS HAS NOT CHANGED.

SO, WHEN I SEE THE SUDDEN OUTBURSTS OF PENT UP EMOTIONS OF HATRED BEING REGURGITATED BY THOSE WHO CAN NO LONGER HOLD IT WITHIN THEMSELVES, I AM NOT SURPRISED.

LISTEN, I HAVE SEEN AND LISTENED TO BLACKS WHO HATE WHITES. I HAVE SEEN AND LISTENED TO WHITES WHO HATE BLACKS. I HAVE SEEN AND LISTENED TO THOSE WHO DON’T REALLY KNOW WHO TO HATE TODAY OR TOMORROW.

THERE IS A SERIOUS GENERATIONAL CURSE OF HATRED BY SKIN COLOR OF PEOPLE IN AMERICA.

I DO THINK THAT WHITE AND BLACK WOMEN WHO ARE RAISING MULTI-RACIAL CHILDREN  FACE A MOST DAUNTING CHALLENGE TO CHANGING AMERICA FOR THE FUTURE, IF WE WILL EVER HAVE ONE.

THOSE WHO ARE WHITE OR BLACK MAY THINK THAT THEY CAN REMAIN SILENT AND IT WILL ALL GO AWAY. WELL, IT WILL NOT, UNLESS YOU DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT.

I KNOW THAT THERE ARE STILL SOME GOOD PEOPLE LEFT IN AMERICA. HOW LONG THAT WILL REMAIN, ONLY TIME WILL TELL.

REVELATION TIME IS NOW, AS I HAVE PREDICTED IN THIS TECHNOTYRANNICAL SOCIETY.

THE CAMERA IS TYRANT. THE CAMERA BECOMES THE IDOL. THE IDOL IS KING.

THE HATE THAT WE CREATE WILL ULTIMATELY DETERMINE OUR FATE

LISTEN, IF YOU SHOULD KNOW ONE THING ABOUT RAS CARDO IT IS THIS- THE WORD IS LOVE..

(c) RAS CARDO SPEAKS TO AMERICA. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED GLOBALLY..

AMERICA- WHERE IS-E PLURIBUS UNUM? WHY ARE YOUR MINISTERS OF THE GOSPEL PREACHING HATE TOWARDS EACH OTHER? ARE “BORN AGAIN”CHRISTIANS TO BLAME FOR ANTI-SEMITISM?

EXCERPT (c) SALUS POPULI SUPREMA LEX

WITHOUT PREJUDICE.

THE HOLY SPIRIT SPOKE THE TRUTH TO OUR FOREFATHERS WHEN IT WAS REVEALED TO ISIAH, THE PROPHET THAT HE SHOULD GO TO THE PEOPLE AND SAY:

“YOU WILL BE EVER HEARING, BUT NEVER UNDERSTANDING.”

“YOU WILL BE EVER SEEING, BUT NEVER PERCEIVING.”.

” FOR THE PEOPLE’S HEART HAS BECOME CALLOUSED”

THE WRATH OF GOD HAS BEEN IN PLAIN VIEW TO MAN SINCE HIS CREATION, BUT BECAUSE OF THE WICKEDNESS OF MEN WHO SUPPRESS THE TRUTH, THEY CARED NOT TO SEE.

SO, NOW THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR MEN TO TRY AND PUT THE BLAME ON THE INNOCENT ONES.

FOR ALTHOUGH THEY KNEW GOD, THEY NEITHER GLORIFIED HIM, NOR GIVE HIM THANKS, BUT THEIR THINKING BECAME FUTILE, AND THEIR FOOLISH HEARTS DARKENED..

THOSE MINISTERS AND PREACHERS WHO TRY TO PREACH THE POLITICS OF RELIGION WHILE DECEIVING THE PEOPLE ARE DOING MUCH HARM TO OUR NATION..

I THINK THAT THEY FORGET THAT AMONG US ALL THERE IS NONE RIGHTEOUS.

I HAVE SEEN AND HAVE LISTENED TO THE VIEWS OF SOME WHO SPREAD VITRIOLIC TEACHINGS AGAINST THOSE WHOM THEY THINK REPRESENT ONE POLITICAL PARTY FROM THE OTHER.

THE OTHER DAY, A MINISTER/PREACHER WENT SO FAR AS TO SPEAK ABOUT AND BLAMING THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE LOSS OF LIVES OF AMERICANS IN THE EMBASSY.

THEN, I THOUGHT- “LET HE WHO IS WITHOUT SIN CAST THE FIRST STONE”

I WENT FURTHER TO BE CONCERNED THAT ANYONE WITH AN UNSTABLE MIND COULD FOLLOW UP ON SUCH A REMARK.

I AM FAR FROM BEING A MOST RIGHTEOUS RASTAMAN, BUT TO SPREAD HATE CAUSING OTHERS TO HATE OTHERS IS NOT MY FORTE.

IF ANYTHING, WE AS A PEOPLE MUST CHALLENGE THE ATHEISTIC AND HEATHENISTIC VIEWS BY HAVING PUBLIC DEBATES, NOT MIXED WITH HATE.

WE MUST MAKE OUR CHILDREN IMMUNE TO THE VULTURES AND VICES OF SECULARISM, RACISM, AND ALL THE OTHER ISMS AND SCHISMS.

THE RASTAMAN MUST TRY AT ALL TIMES TO SHOW HOW CREATION, CULTURE, AND BIBLICAL TRUTHS ALIGN THEMSELVES IN THE REDEMPTION OF GOD’S PEOPLE.

SO AMERICA- I MUST ASK YOU TODAY- WHERE IS YOUR -E PLURIBUS UNUM?

MY REGGAE CAME TO AMERICA TO FREE THE PEOPLE. IT WAS THE SAME MISSION FOR JAMAICA AND EVERYWHERE ELSE.

F.R.E.E.D.O.M –AS DEFINED BY MY REGGAE MEANS THIS-

FOR REGGAE ENHANCES THE ENLIGHTENED DIGNITY OF MAN..

DEMOCRACY ALSO HAS ITS PROBLEMS, BUT AT LEAST FOR NOW, IT ACKNOWLEDGES THE TRUTH THAT FREEDOM CANNOT BE BOUGHT OR SOLD.

THE PRICE OF FREEDOM IS ALWAYS SHOWN IN THE LOSS OF LIVES AND THE SHEDDING OF BLOOD.

REGGAE SAYS- NO ONE WINS A WAR. BOTH SIDES ALWAYS END UP WITH CASUALTIES.

THAT’S WHY SLAVERY AND THE HOLOCAUST WERE SO EGREGIOUSLY AND GENOCIDALLY  WRONG.

INCIDENTALLY, I DO NOT SEE THESE PREACHERS TALKING ABOUT THE KILLINGS OF UN-ARMED YOUNG  BLACK MEN AS IF THERE IS A SALE GOING ON.

IN THESE MATTERS THE CHURCHES OFTEN REMAIN SILENT.

A NATION SERIOUSLY DIVIDED. AMERICA, WHERE IS YOUR E PLURIBUS UNUM?

I AM RAS CARDO PEACE! (c) ALL RIGHTS RESERVED GLOBALLY.

” A YOUTH NAMED TADO ( CARDO) WHO HAD THE BEST VOICE OF ALL WOULD HAVE BEEN THE NATURAL LEAD BUT HIS PARENTS INSISTED THAT HE STUDY TO BE A DOCTOR. BOB REPLACED HIM”- Dermot Hussey 1984 notes on – The wailers. The rest compiled by Trevor Wyatt. AN ATTEMPT BY HUSSEY TO TELL THE TRUTH OF OUR HISTORY. MUCH RESPECT FROM RAS CARDO…

RE: 1984  WRITE UP ARTICLE- THE WAILERS- BY DERMOT HUSSEY.

BEFORE ALL WHOM THIS PRESENCE SHALL COME- BE IT KNOWN THAT:

WITHOUT PREJUDICE.

SUCH WERE THE WORDS FROM ONE WHO TRIED TO RELAY SOME OF THE TRUTHS OF THE EARLY BEGINNINGS OF OUR TRENCH TOWN REGGAE  MUSIC.

DERMOT HUSSEY IN 1984 TRIED TO PUT IT ALL TOGETHER IN THIS  SCANT WRITE UP.

HOWEVER, I MUST GIVE HIM CREDIT FOR THIS COURAGEOUS EFFORT IN THE TELLING OF OUR HISTORY AND EARLY BEGINNINGS OF THE WAILERS.

YOU SHOULD TAKE CAREFUL NOTE THAT HE DID NOT SAY- ORIGINAL WAILING WAILERS, FOR LIKE SO MANY, HE DID NOT KNOW THAT THERE WERE AN EARLIER TRIUMVIRATE GROUP- KNOWN AS THE ORIGINAL WAILING WAILERS- WHICH COMPRISED- JUNIOR BRAITHWAITE, GARTH DENNIS, AND MYSELF RICARDO( RAS CARDO) SCOTT.

THE TADO HE WROTE ABOUT WAS THE -CARDO- HE HEARD OR WAS TOLD ABOUT WHICH IS I.

HE WROTE WHAT HE HEARD, NOT NECESSARILY WHAT HE KNEW FOR A FACT.

HOWEVER, I MUST LAUD HIS EFFORTS AND HONESTY FOR DOING SO SINCE NO OTHER SET OF WRITERS HAS COME CLOSE TO DATE.

THE WAILERS ALBUM  WHICH BEARS HIS WORK FEATURED TEN SONGS INCLUDING- CONCRETE JUNGLE, NO MORE TROUBLE, SMALL AXE, MIDNIGHT RAVERS AND RASTAMAN CHANT AMONG OTHERS.

IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT BEFORE BOB MARLEY CAME INTO TRENCH TOWN AND STARTED LIVING WITH US, THERE WAS THE ORIGINAL WAILING WAILERS AS I HAVE TOLD YOU BEFORE.

JUNIOR BRAITHWAITE AND MYSELF HAD BEEN SINGING AROUND THE AREA FOR YEARS.

WE GAVE THE NAME – WAILERS TO BOB AND HIS GROUP WHICH HE THEN FORMED WITH PETER AND BUNNY. JOE, SEECO, ROY, AND PETER TOOK IT FROM THERE.

I WILL NOT GIVE FURTHER DETAILS, BUT IT IS WISE TO NOTE THAT THE HISTORY HAS SO MUCH TRUTHS AND INTRICACIES- SO FULL OF FINE DETAILS OF TRUTHS- WHICH IS THE ONLY WAY TO NOW SEPARATE THOSE WHO KNOW THE TRUTHS FROM THOSE WHO ARE TELLING LIES AND SPREADING FALSEHOODS ABOUT US.

WHEN I SAY THAT I AM AT THE BEGINNING FROM THE BEGINNING, I HOPE YOU GET THE SERIOUSNESS OF WHAT THIS MEANS.

TODAY, WE HAVE SO MANY WHO CALL THEMSELVES- REGGAE HISTORIANS. SO MANY WRITE BOOKS ABOUT US. MOST FALSELY PORTRAY US AND OUR HISTORY.

BUT, MORE AND MORE PEOPLE TODAY WHO HAVE READ AND VERIFIED MY TRUTHS SHOULD NOW FEEL ASSURED THAT I WILL NOT WRITE FALSEHOODS OR DECEIVE ANYONE.

I COMMENT ON WHAT DERMOT HUSSEY WROTE SO AS TO CLARIFY TO THOSE OF MY READERSHIP AS TO THE VERACITY OF HIS REMARKS.

ASIDE FROM THE MIS-SPELT NAME -TADO- WHICH SHOULD HAVE BEEN CARDO. THIS STATEMENT IS TRUE.

I DO NOT PRETEND TO KNOW WHERE AND FROM WHOM HE GOT THE REST OF HIS STORY.

I SPEAK ONLY IN THE VALIDATION OF THE AFOREMENTIONED STATEMENT WHICH REFERS TO MY INVOLVEMENT.

IT IS ALSO WISE TO KNOW THAT FOR YEARS THE MEDIA AND ENTERTAINMENT MUSIC INDUSTRY PRINTED AND PUBLICIZED THAT AFTER PETER WAS MURDERED, BUNNY WAS THE ONLY ORIGINAL WAILER LEFT.

THIS WAS NOT TRUE.  JUNIOR BRAITHWAITE, WAS STILL AROUND, AND SO WAS GARTH DENNIS AND MYSELF.

IT IS CLEAR TO ME THAT THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO WANT TO BE- THE ORIGINALS- COMPLETELY IGNORING THE TRUTH AND FACTS THAT THERE WERE OTHERS BEFORE THEM.

THERE CAN BE, AND WAS ONLY ONE ORIGINAL WAILING WAILERS GROUP. i.e JUNIOR BRAITHWAITE AND MYSELF INCLUDED.

AND , AS FOR THE NAME WAILING WAILERS- I CHOSE THAT NAME- WAILING DIRECTLY FROM THE BIBLE- ” FOR A WAILING HAS COME OUT OF ZION”- BOOK OF JEREMIAH.

I COULD TELL YOU SO MUCH MORE, BUT FOR NOW- REST ASSURED THAT YOU HAVE BEEN TOLD THE TRUTH.

I AM RAS CARDO WHO CREATED AND NAMED THE REGGAE GENRE OF MUSIC. I REMAIN ONE OF THE ORIGINAL FOUNDATION WAILING WAILERS.

BUNNY IS NOW THE ONLY ONE REMAINING FROM HIS GROUP WITH BOB AND PETER.

MY ORIGINAL WAILING WAILERS TRIUMVIRATE GROUP WITH JUNIOR BRAITHWAITE CAME BEFORE ALL THAT.

FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO FIGHT FOR POSITIONS OR RANKINGS, THIS WOULD BE FUTILE AT THIS TIME, BECAUSE THE TRUTH IS WHAT I JUST TOLD YOU. IT NEVER CHANGES.

I AM HERE TO SET THE RECORDS STRAIGHT IN THE TRUTH AS TO OUR REGGAE HISTORY AND TRENCH TOWN LIVITY..

I GIVE NO APOLOGIES FOR THE TRUTHS OF WHAT I WRITE. NO DISRESPECT INTENDED.

FOR THOSE WHO HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THE TRUTH, KNOW THIS: IT IS YOURS, NOT MINE.(c) RAS CARDO SPEAKS. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED GLOBALLY.
