REGGAE- SOME SAY THE GENRE IS DEAD, BUT THEY DO NOT KNOW WHAT I HAVE IN STORE FOR THE NEXT 50 YEARS OR MORE. DO YOU WANT TO KNOW?

cardo classic photo 013REGGAE AND TRENCH TOWN LIVITY AND HISTORY IS ALIVE AND WELL.

WHEN ONE DOOR IS CLOSED, MANY MORE IS OPENED.

STIFFED NECKED FOOLS, THEY GOT THE WRONG INTERPRETATION.

THE STONE THE BUILDERS REFUSED.

WHO AMONG YOU SEEK THE TRUTH?

THERE HAS BEEN SO MUCH TALK ABOUT THE DEMISE OF REGGAE IN JAMAICA AND ELSEWHERE.

I AM AWARE THAT THERE ARE THOSE WHO WOULD LIKE TO SEE THIS HAPPEN FOR WHATEVER REASONS THEY MAY HAVE.

THE FACT IS, THERE ARE THOSE WHO HAVE RAPED AND PROFITED FROM THE FIRST WAVE OF THE MUSIC WHICH FLOWS FROM THE REGGAE.

BUT, I RAS CARDO HAVE NEWS FOR THEM- REGGAE IS MORE THAN THE MUSIC WHICH CARRIES ITS MESSAGES.

THERE ARE THINGS ABOUT REGGAE AND THE GENRE WHICH I CREATED AND HAVE YET TO REVEAL TO THE WORLD.

TRENCH TOWN HAD A MULTIPLICITY OF TALENTED PEOPLE DURING MY TIME LIVING THERE, AND THE WORLD WILL NEVER KNOW THIS UNLESS I REVEALED IT TO THEM.

WHAT I HAVE IS FOR THE PEOPLE, AND IT READS LIKE THE SCROLLS OF THE OLD AND NEW TESTAMENT COMBINED.

JAMAICA, COULD HAVE KNOWN CERTAIN TRUTHS LONG AGO WHICH WE WERE WILLING TO SHARE,. BUT WE WERE LIKE OUTCAST IN OUR OWN LAND.

SO, WE REFUSED TO BE WHAT THEY WANTED US TO BE.

KEEP THIS IN MIND- “CAN ANYTHING GOOD COME OUT OF TRENCH TOWN?”

THIS IS WHAT THEY WOULD SAY ABOUT US.

TODAY, OUR REGGAE MUSIC WHICH I NAMED AND HELPED TO CREATE IN TRENCH TOWN IS THE CORNERSTONE FOR THE COUNTRY IN ITS TOURISM AND CULTURE.

NOTHING GOES BACK TO HELP THE TRENCH TOWN PEOPLE.

IT HAS BEEN 53 YEARS AND COUNTING TO DATE, YET THE SUFFERINGS CONTINUE ON THE POOR.

IN MY KEEP ARE THE DETAILS OF CAREFULLY DOCUMENTED JOURNALISTIC EXPERIENCES.

IN THIS TIME, THERE ARE SO MANY WHO WOULD LIKE TO STEAL AND RUN TO MARKET WITH WHAT THEY KNOW I HAVE IN TRUTH OF OUR TRENCH TOWN REGGAE HISTORY AND LIVITY.

I AM LIKE THE PROTEIN INTERFERON STOPPING THE INVADING VIRUS WHOSE AIM IS TO DESTROY AND KILL.

THOSE WHO HAVE APPROACHED ME COME WITH SINISTER INTENTIONS, AND CARE NOT TO HELP THE PEOPLE.

THOSE WHO DARE TO COME SHOULD KNOW THAT WHAT I HAVE PROMISED THE TRENCH TOWN PEOPLE WILL BE THEIRS IN A TIME APPOINTED, AND WILL BE KEPT.

SO, FOR ALL THOSE WHO CARE TO KNOW- KNOW THIS!

REGGAE AND THE MUSIC IS VERY MUCH ALIVE, AND READY FOR ITS NEXT MANIFESTATION.

I MAY BE THE FIRST TO OPENLY SAY THIS TRUTH, BUT- RACISM AND COLOR OF SKIN- IS NOT THE PROBLEM IN AMERICA. I WILL TELL YOU WHAT TRULY IS:READ THIS AND LEARN.

EXCERPT.(c) RAS CARDO SPEAKS REGGAE TRUTHS.

WRITTEN WITHOUT PREJUDICE.

RACISM IS NOT THE PROBLEM IN AMERICA.

THE REAL PROBLEM IS THE PERPETUATION OF A GENERATIONAL HATRED FUELED BY FEAR FROM THOSE WHO KNOW THEY HAVE DONE, OR THEIR ANCESTORS HAVE DONE, IRREPARABLE AND EGREGIOUS HARM/WRONGS TO A PEOPLE OR CLASS.

NOTE VERY CAREFULLY THE WAY THIS IS WORDED, AS I KNOW THAT THERE ARE THOSE PEOPLE WHO ENJOY PLAYING WITH WORDS AND TAKING THEM OUT OF THEIR PROPER CONTEXT.

THOSE WHO MAY HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THIS SHOULD KNOW THAT I AM OPEN TO DISCUSS AND /OR CHALLENGE WHATEVER THEY MAY CHOOSE TO BRING TO THE TABLE OF REASONING,IF AND ONLY IF, THEY COME WITH CLEAN HANDS.

ALL TOO OFTEN, THOSE WHO HARBOR HATRED FOR OTHERS USE-RACISM AS A -“CATCH PHRASE”- TO COVER THEIR INTENT.

THIS APPLIES TO ANYONE OF ANY RACE OR ETHNICITY WHO CHOOSE TO USE COLOR OF SKIN ISSUES TO CLOUD AS A SHROUD FOR DECEIT.

SPEAKING, AND INTERACTING WITH THOUSANDS OF PEOPLES IN AMERICA OVER MANY MANY YEARS, INCLUDING THOSE WHO WILL QUIETLY ADMIT CERTAIN TRUTHS, HAS SHOWN ME THAT THE -COLOR OF SKIN ISSUES- WHICH FEEDS INTO RACISM- HAS A MUCH DEEPER ROOT, NOT AT ALL RELATED TO COLOR OR RACE.

LET ME ALSO SAY THIS: WE CAN DENY AS MUCH AS WE WANT, BUT MOST OF OUR BEHAVIORS FROM BIRTH ARE LEARNED.

YOU DO NOT NEED TO HAVE A PHD, OR GO TO HARVARD TO SEE AND TO KNOW WHAT I SEE AND KNOW.

SPENDING TIME WITH PEOPLE , AND BEING GENUINELY CARING AND CONCERNED AS A KEY OBSERVER IS ALL YOU NEED.

LISTENING TO OTHERS, EVEN THE DULL AND IGNORANT, REFUSING NONE WHO COME TO YOU FOR HELP IS THE KEY.

AMERICANS- WHITES, BLACKS, RICH, POOR- OF ALL RACES, CLASS AND CREEDS HAVE SPOKEN TO ME. THIS IS WHAT I SHARE WITH MY READERS IN TRUTH.

I WOULD HAVE BEEN A DIFFERENT PERSON, SHAPED BY THE PREVAILING SOCIETY IN AMERICA, HAD I BEEN BORN OVER HERE.

BUT, BEING BORN IN JAMAICA, AND SINCE TRAVELING THE WORLD, HELPS ME TO SEE AND TO KNOW MANY THINGS, SUCH AS, THE COLOR OF A MAN’S SKIN HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH WHO HE IS.

I CAN DO THE WORKS I DO TO HELP PEOPLE BECAUSE I DID NOT HAVE IT INCULCATED IN ME FROM BIRTH TO JUDGE OR TO HATE PEOPLE BECAUSE OF THE COLOR OF THEIR SKIN.

TECHNOTYRANNY IN THIS TECHNOTYRANNICAL SOCIETY- SHOULD WE BE CONCERNED? THOSE WHO ARE STILL HUMAN, SHOULD BE!

EXCERPT(c) TECHNOTYRANNICAL SOCIETY- THE GENOCIDAL PLAN TO DESTROY HUMANITY.- RAS CARDO PROPHECY.

WRITTEN WITHOUT PREJUDICE

SOME OF US HAVE BUT A VERY SHORT MEMORY. I AM SURE THAT THERE ARE MANY EXPERIENCES IN LIFE THAT WE WOULD RATHER FORGET.

IF THE PROPER STUDY OF MANKIND , IS MAN, WHY ARE WE SO ENCUMBERED BY OUR NARCISSISTIC TENDENCIES?

I HAVE SAID- ” THE  TECHNOLOGY WE CREATE WILL ULTIMATELY DETERMINE OUR FATE”.

I STAND BY EVERY WORD AS I HAVE WRITTEN.

FOR AS A PEOPLE, AS A SOCIETY, AS A SPECIES WE ARE RACING TOWARDS OUR DESTRUCTION USING THE TECHNOLOGY WE HAVE CREATED, SUPPOSEDLY TELLING THE WORLD, AND CONVINCING OTHERS THAT IT WILL HELP TO SOLVE OUR PROBLEMS.

CASE IN POINT-WE CREATED THE NUCLEAR ENERGY TO HELP US WITH OUR ENERGY RESOURCE NEEDS. NOW WE WORRY ABOUT IT GETTING INTO THE HANDS OF THOSE WHO WILL USE IT FOR EVIL.

WE FORGET THAT THIS UNIVERSAL STRUGGLE IS ONE OF GOOD VERSUS EVIL.

GOD WORKS THROUGH MAN, AND SO DOES THE DEVIL.

ONE IS FOR THE GOOD, THE OTHER IS FOR THE EVIL.

WE LIVE IN A SOCIETY NOW IN WHICH THE TECHNOLOGY RACES ON WITHOUT REGARDS FOR THE CONSEQUENCES WHICH WILL SURELY FOLLOW LATER.

I HAVE WRITTEN AND SPOKEN ABOUT CORPORATE VULTURES AND PROFITEERS IN SO MANY AREAS, AS IN THE BIOTECHNOTYRANNY I HAVE SPOKEN ABOUT. THE ENGINEERING OF OUR FOOD SUPPLY WITHOUT REGARDS TO HUMAN LIFE, SOME OF WHICH, I AM CERTAIN, CONTRIBUTES TO THE SPREADING, NOT THE CURING OF CANCER.

WE HAVE PEOPLE WORKING FEVERISHLY IN LABS ALL OVER THE PLACE TRYING TO GET THE NEXT TECHNOLOGICAL GADGETS TO MARKET.

SO, YOU MAY ASK, WHY THE RUSH? WHERE IS THIS RUSH HEADING, AND FOR WHOSE PURPOSE?

PEOPLE HAVE BECOME EMOTIONAL FREAKS AND TECHNOLOGICAL JUNKIES, IF I MAY COIN SUCH A TERM. THEY HAVE BEEN TECHNOLOGICALLY TYRANNIZED, AND MOST DON’T EVEN KNOW IT.

I WILL DECLARE- THIS IS THE ROAD TO DESTRUCTION. WHY?

WE CREATE LOOKING ONLY TO THE HERE AND NOW, WITHOUT REGARDS TO THE CONSEQUENCES.

SO, SHOULD YOU BE CONCERNED? WELL, ITS UP TO YOU TO DECIDE.

THE VULTURES ARE MAKING IT SUCH THAT YOU DO NOT HAVE A CHOICE. YOU WILL HAVE NO CONTROL BEYOND WHAT YOU MAY BE WEARING ON YOUR WRIST, AND EVEN THEN, WHILE YOU MAY THINK YOU HAVE CONTROL, SOMEONE WILL BE TRACKING AND CONTROLLING YOUR EVERY MOVE.

WELCOME- YOU HAVE BECOME ROBOTIZED! HOW MECHANICAL DO YOU WANT TO BE?

WHEN ONE SPEAKS OF- ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE- WHAT IS IT THAT THEY MEAN?

TO ME, IT MEANS THE CREATION OF INTELLIGENCE SUPPLANTING OUR OWN.

NOW, WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE WHOSE INTENTIONS ARE TO SUPPLANT THE CREATION OF INTELLIGENCE FROM THE MOST HIGH GOD OF CREATION FROM WHOM ALL GIFTS COME?

IT IS WRITTEN-” YOU KNOW HOW TO INTERPRET THE APPEARANCE OF THE SKY, BUT YOU CANNOT INTERPRET THE SIGNS OF THE TIMES”.

MY QUESTION TO ALL AND SUNDRY IS THIS- WHAT IS IT THAT JAH/GOD HAS TO DO TO GET YOUR UNDIVIDED ATTENTION?

I WILL RE-ITERATE: THE TECHNOLOGY WE CREATE WILL ULTIMATELY DETERMINE OUR FATE, AND THE SIGNS AND WONDERS ARE SHOWING US THAT IT IS NOT GOOD.

MY LATE GREAT PROPHETIC MOTHER- MAMA SCOTT- ALWAYS SAID TO ME-

DON’T, TROUBLE TROUBLE, FOR ONE DAY, TROUBLE WILL TROUBLE YOU.

TODAY, I RAS CARDO SAY- YOU MESS WITH NATURE, NATURE WILL MESS WITH YOU.

A FOOL IS WISE ONLY IN HIS OWN EYES.

(c) RAS CARDO SPEAKS- ON THE TECHNOTYRANNICAL SOCIETY.

8-SHOTS FIRED INTO THE BACK OF A FLEEING BLACK MAN BY WHITE COP FATALLY KILLING HIM. I GUESS ITS OPEN BIRD SEASON FOR BLACKS IN AMERICA. IT’S NOW- SHOOT TO KILL- WHATEVER THE CAUSE…

EXCERPT (c) TECHNOTYRANNY AND MURDER CAUGHT ON TAPE.

WITHOUT PREJUDICE.

CAVEAT: IF YOU CANNOT DEAL WITH TRUTH, THEN READ NO FURTHER. NO APOLOGIES!

LET ME BEGIN BY MAKING THIS TRUTH STATEMENT ABOUT COPS OR ABOUT PEOPLE IN GENERAL.

IT WOULD NEVER BE SAFE OR TRUTHFUL TO SAY THAT EVERYONE IS A MURDERER, BUT IT IS TRUE TO SAY THAT SOME PEOPLE ARE, BECAUSE THEY WILL HARBOR THE TENDENCIES, AND WILL SHOW IT BY THEIR ACTIONS AS THEY SEE FIT.

ANY FOOL CAN COME TO THE CONCLUSION BASED ON THE EVIDENCE-OF JUST SEEING WHO IS KILLING WHO- AND KEEPING A WATCHFUL EYE AS TO WHAT IS BEING DONE ABOUT IT, IF ANYTHING.

SO FAR IN RECENT KILLINGS IT IS SAFE TO SAY THAT IT IS OPEN SEASON FOR WHITE COPS TO KILL BLACK YOUTHS.

HOW MANY RECENT DEATHS HAVE WE SEEN SO FAR, AND COUNTING?

IS IT BLACK COPS KILLING WHITE YOUTHS?

ONE IS COMPELLED TO THINK THAT THERE IS A DISEASE IN THE COP CULTURE TO KILL BLACK YOUTHS, SO EASILY AS KILLING A BIRD.

I WONDER WHAT WOULD BE THE RESULT IF BLACK COPS WERE KILLING WHITE YOUTHS, SO RANDOMLY ON THE STREETS OF AMERICA.

I ALSO WONDER WHAT THE FEW BLACK COPS KNOW ABOUT THE TENDENCIES OF WHITE COPS WHOM THEY WORK WITH DAILY, AS TO THE PROPENSITIES TO KILL BLACK YOUTHS.

IT IS VERY CLEAR THAT THERE ARE SOME WHO ENLIST FOR TRAINING INTO THE COP CULTURE WITH A VIEW TO KILLING BLACK YOUTHS.

BUT, AS I HAD WRITTEN BEFORE, THERE IS A DISEASE IN THE WAY IN/ AND BY WHICH ,CERTAIN CANDIDATES ARE SCREENED AND SELECTED FOR TRAINING INTO THE COP AND LAW ENFORCEMENT CULTURE, AND OF COURSE THERE ARE THOSE WHO WILL AVOID DETECTION TO GAIN ENTRY.

AMERICA LOVES A CONSPIRACY THEORY, BUT THIS IS REALITY.

THE TECHNOLOGY IS NOW HERE  FOR US TO SEE OURSELVES AND OUR ACTIONS.

THE CAMERA HAS TAKEN WHAT IT SEES WITHOUT REGARDS TO HOW WE MAY FEEL AND THE TRUTHS ARE REVEALED FOR THE WORLD TO SEE.

SOME OF US CAN BEGIN TO INJECT OUR OPINIONS AND BIASES INTO WHATEVER WE MAY THINK WAS THE PROBABLE CAUSE FOR THIS ACTION, BUT WHAT IS SEEN IS UNDENIABLE.

ANOTHER BLACK MAN IS GUNNED DOWN BY A WHITE COP WHO CHOSE TO UNLOAD- 8 SHOTS FROM A LOADED GUN, AS THE BLACK MAN WAS FLEEING- CAUGHT ON TAPE.

THIS IS WHAT AMERICA HAS BECOME. A MOTHER AND FAMILY WEEPS THE LOSS.

NO WOMAN NO CRY.

HOW LONG MUST WE GRIEVE AMERICA FOR THE LOSS OF OUR BLACK CHILDREN?

IS NOT THERE ANOTHER PART OF THIS MAN’S BODY THAT THE COP COULD HAVE SHOT TO BRING HIM DOWN, ALIVE, AND READY FOR THE ARMS OF JUSTICE TO TAKE ITS COURSE?

AMERICA, HAS ONE REALITY, BEING PLAYED OUT DAILY IN THE KILLINGS OF ITS PEOPLE, NAMELY, THE LOVE OF GUNS AND THE HATRED OF CERTAIN ETHNICITIES.

THIS WILL NEVER GO AWAY.

PEOPLE HAVE ARSENAL OF WEAPONS STACKED UP IN THEIR HOMES , WAITING FOR WHAT?

SO, AS AMERICA AWAITS ITS OWN SELF IMPOSED ARMAGEDDON, IT IS TIME THAT ORDINARY LAW ABIDING PEOPLE THINK REALITY, THINK NOW, THINK AND OBSERVE THE MANY DANGERS OF OUR TIMES, FOR THERE IS SO MUCH MORE LEFT TO COME.

THE TECHNOLOGY WE CREATE WILL SURELY DETERMINE OUR FATE. I HAVE SAID THIS BEFORE.

WHAT IS YOUR FATE , AMERICA?

IS IT OPEN  BIRD-SEASON FOR BLACKS?

IT IS PAST TIME THAT BLACK PEOPLE IN AMERICA, WAKE UP AND LIVE!

WE SING IN MY REGGAE MUSIC- SEE A MAN’S FACE BUT YOU NEVER SEE HIS HEART.

THERE ARE STILL SOME GOOD PEOPLE LEFT IN AMERICA, BUT NOW IS NOT THE TIME TO BE AFRAID OR TO KEEP SILENT ABOUT THE WRONGS DONE IN AND TO AMERICA, AND ITS PEOPLE- WHITE, BLACK, OR ANY OTHER ETHNICITY.

AMERICA, ARE YOU GOING TO ALLOW THIS TO CONTINUE?

ETHNICITY SHOULD NOT DETERMINE A MAN’S DESTINY.

IT IS NEVER BUSINESS AS USUAL, WHEN A LIFE IS LOST.

TO THE MOTHER AND PARENTS OF ALL WHO HAVE BEEN SLAUGHTERED ON THE STREETS OF AMERICA, I RAS CARDO SENDS MY LOVE AND THE PEACE OF JAH WHO WILL COMFORT YOU ALL IN YOUR TIME OF GREAT SORROW.

DELIVERANCE SHALL COME TO MY PEOPLE.- FOR A HEALING OF THE NATION.
