WRITTEN WITHOUT PREJUDICE

IF THERE IS ANY DOUBT IN YOUR MIND ABOUT THE ABILITY OF THE MEDIA INFLUENCING EVENTS, THEN STOP FOR A WHILE AND TAKE A CLOSER LOOK.

LET ME SAY THIS: HOW MANY TIMES HAVE YOU SEEN THE SAME COMMERCIALS WHILE YOU SIT FOR ONLY A FEW MINUTES TO WATCH TV?

WHAT I AM HERE TO FOCUS ON TODAY IS HOW THE MEDIA, ESPECIALLY THE BRITISH MEDIA, CREATED A CLOUD OF HATRED AGAINST A MAN THEY REALLY NEVER KNEW NOR TOOK THE TIME TO GET TO KNOW.

I KNOW FOR A FACT THAT THE CONTRIVED PLAN IN BABYLON WAS TO MAKE SURE THAT PETER, AS TALENTED AS HE WAS, WOULD NOT SUCCEED.

PETER KNEW THIS TOO, BUT WAS NEVER A MAN TO GIVE UP ON HIS RIGHTEOUS EFFORTS TO PLAY MUSIC AND SPREAD JAH WORD TO THE PEOPLE.

NOW, WHO CAN HATE A MAN FOR THAT?, AND WHY ? .HE SPOKE OF LEGALIZING MARIJUANA FOR MEDICINAL AND SPIRITUAL PURPOSES.

HE TOLD YOU ABOUT ITS USE FOR HEALTH CONDITIONS LIKE GLAUCOMA.

HE WAS NEVER A MAN TO ENGAGE IN THE MASS CULTIVATION OF IT.

HE SPOKE THE TRUTH ABOUT IT, AS TO WHY HE SUFFERED THE BRUTALITIES OF LAW ENFORCEMENTS SENT BY THE SYSTEM IN BABYLON TO SILENCE HIM FOR SPEAKING THE TRUTH.

AND YOUR RELENTLESS EFFORTS TOOK HIS LIFE IN 1987.

AND NOW TODAY, 28 YEARS AFTER YOU KILLED HIM FOR THE TRUTH, YOU ARE DOING THE SAME THINGS HE SPOKE ABOUT IN TRUTH.

SO, I MUST ASK YOU MURDERERS, WHY DID YOU KILL HIM?

FOR, IF A MAN MUST DIE FOR THE TRUTH, THEN WOE BE UNTO THOSE WHO KILL.

JAMAICA IS NOW POISED TO BEGIN ITS GANJAGRICULTURAL BOOM IN THE WORLD LEGALIZATION OF MARIJUANA, CLAIMING THAT IT IS FOR “MEDICINAL PURPOSES.”

LIKE SO MANY BEFORE AND AFTER HIM, YOU HAVE TAKEN A PROPHET AND CREATIVE WISDOM AWAY FROM THE PEOPLE.

EVERY DAY IS A MEMORIAL DAY FOR ME IN THE LOSS OF MY PEOPLE.

FOR HOW DO YOU FORGET TRUSTED AND CARING, COMPASSIONATE BRETHRENS AND SISTRENS WITH WHOM YOU HAVE GROWN ALL YOUR LIFE, AND TO SEE THEM SLAUGHTERED BY WICKED MEN?

THE BRITISH MEDIA ACTED IN CONCERT WITH THOSE IN AND OUT OF JAMAICA WHO WANTED TO DESTROY PETER SO THAT THEY COULD ADVANCE WHOM THEY CHOSE SO TO BE. THEY MADE THE WORLD BELIEVE THAT BOB AND PETER HATED EACH OTHER. THIS WAS NEVER TRUE, BUT PEOPLE BELIEVED IT.

I HAVE SEEN BRITISH INDIVIDUALS TRYING TO TARNISH THE MISSION AND IMAGE OF REGGAE AND THE RASTAMAN IN WHAT THEY HAVE CALLED- “THE REGGAE COMPASSIONATE ACT.”

THEY ARE IGNORANT AND FOOLISH AS TO WHAT REGGAE IS ABOUT, BECAUSE REGGAE, AS I HAVE CREATED IT, IS COMPASSIONATE WITHIN ITSELF.

NO ONE NEEDS TO BE REMINDED THAT REGGAE IS OF COMPASSION ABOUT THE STRUGGLES AND SUFFERINGS OF THE POOR.

THIS IS THE WAY MEDIA WILL DECEIVE THE PEOPLE WHO ARE QUICK TO CONCLUDE THAT WHAT THE MEDIA REPORTS IS TRUE.

I KNOW WHAT PETER ENDURED WHILE GROWING UP WITH US IN TRENCH TOWN LONG BEFORE THE MUSIC, WHAT HE ENDURED AND SUFFERED BECAUSE OF IT, AND WHO CONTRIBUTED TO HIS DEMISE.

IN MY BOOK- THE TRUE TRENCH TOWN STORY- I WROTE THIS:

“MANY HAVE LOST THEIR SOULS FOR THE CAUSE OF FREEDOM AND REGGAE SINGERS ARE INCLUDED BECAUSE THERE ARE EVIL SOULS OUT THERE WHO DO NOT WANT FREEDOM TO PREVAIL”.- RAS CARDO

THE AUTHOR- CHRIS SALEWICZ- IN HIS BOOK ON BOB MARLEY- COPIED THE SAME QUOTE.

THE AUTHOR- JOHN MASOURI- IN HIS BOOK ON PETER TOSH- GAVE QUOTES FROM MY BOOK AS WRITTEN ABOUT PETER: “NOTES RAS CARDO-

“PETER WAS TARGETED AND PERSECUTED CONSTANTLY IN HIS LIFE ETC”.

BOB MARLEY ARCHIVIST- ROGER STEFFEN USES MY BOOK TO SEEK THE TRUE TRENCH TOWN PEOPLE AS I HAVE WRITTEN, AND YES, HE HAS FOUND THEM AS TRUE TO THE RECORDED HISTORY.

MAYBE THESE MEN HAVE SEEN THE TRUTH.

IT IS MY HOPE THAT THEY SHARE IT WITH OTHERS, AND LET THE WORLD KNOW FROM WHOM IT CAME.

FOR LIKE ABE LINCOLN AND WILLIAM WILBERFORCE THEY ARE TRYING TO DO THE RIGHT THING.
