YES! LISTEN UP TO THIS TRUTH. THE FIRST REGGAE SONG WAS NOT BY TOOTS HIBBERT, CLANCY ECCLES, OR JIMMY CLIFF. THEY WERE NEVER THERE WITH US. HOW MANY TIMES HAVE I TOLD THE WORLD THIS? THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN SOMEONE GRABS AND RUNS WITH THE STOLEN PURSE OF ANOTHER NOT KNOWING WHATS INSIDE.DO YOU GET THE POINT? I WILL NOT TELL YOU THE NAME OF THE FIRST SONG AS YET. YOU CAN CONTINUE TO BE DECEIVED BY THOSE WHOM YOU FOLLOW AND WORSHIP. BUT KEEP THIS IN MIND, THEY ARE NOW ALL SINGING MY REGGAE.

EXCERPT (c)  A REGGAE EDUCATION-RAS CARDO/REGGAE CREATOR, ORIGINAL WAILER FROM TRENCH TOWN JAMAICA.

WRITTEN WITHOUT PREJUDICE AND  WITHOUT APOLOGIES FOR THE TRUTH..

I DO NOT HAVE TO CONVINCE THE WORLD ABOUT THE WORKS THAT I HAVE DONE IN SERVING AND HELPING PEOPLE.

SEEKING FAME AND FORTUNE BY THE STEALING  OF THE WORKS AND CREATIONS OF OTHERS WHO MAY BE LESS FORTUNATE IS NEVER MY THING.

TRYING TO DECEIVE OR TO MISLEAD OTHERS INTO HOW IMPORTANT I MAY FEEL OR THINK OF MYSELF WILL NEVER BE MY FORTE.

THE LEGION OF PEOPLES WHO KNOW ME WILL SPEAK IN MY BEHALF, JUST AS HOW I SPEAK AND WRITE FOR THEIR CONCERNS TO SHARE THE TRUTHS WITH THE WORLD.

LET ME TELL THE WORLD THIS: WERE I NOT AROUND TODAY, THE WORLD WOULD HAVE BEEN DECEIVED AS TO OUR TRENCH TOWN REGGAE HISTORY.

I AM FULLY AWARE OF THOSE WHO WOULD HAVE LIKED TO SPREAD FALSEHOODS, LIES AND DECEIT TO OTHERS AS TO OUR TRUE REGGAE HISTORY.

I AM HERE, AND I WILL MAKE SURE THAT THE TRUTH IS TOLD TO THE WORLD.

THIS IS MY WORKS. THIS IS THE WORKS OF MY PEOPLE. THIS IS MY HISTORY.  THIS IS TRENCH TOWN AND ITS PEOPLE.

I WILL NEVER FORSAKE THEM. I WILL NEVER ABANDON THEM. I WILL NEVER LIE TO THEM AND THEIR CAUSES. I WILL SEEK JUSTICE, TRUTHS AND RIGHTS FOR THEM. I WILL AND MUST SPEAK FOR THOSE WHO WILL NOT SPEAK, FOR WHATEVER REASONS WHY THEY CHOSE NOT TO.

THIS IS MY LEGACY. IT IS OUR LEGACY. IT IS TRUE. IT IS REAL. IT IS ONGOING. IT WILL NEVER BE MOVED.

I HOLD NO PERSONAL MALICE TOWARDS ANYONE WHO MAY FEEL OFFENDED BY THE TRUTH.

OVER THE YEARS I HAVE TOLD YOU MANY THINGS. THEY ARE ALL TRUE.

THOSE WHO HAVE TAKEN OFFENSE TO THE TRUTH CAN DO OR SAY WHATEVER SUITS THEM.

AS WE SAY IN JAMAICA- DUPPY KNOW WHO FI FRIGHTEN!

YOU WILL OFTEN HAVE THOSE -FLY BY NIGHT- JOURNALIST- AND WRITERS WHOSE SOLE INTENTIONS IS TO PROFIT FROM THE PITFALLS AND SENSATIONALISMS OF THOSE WHO SUFFER IN THE THRONGS OF POVERTY.

DO YOU REALLY WANT ME TO LIST THE MANY LIES I HAVE DOCUMENTED SO FAR ABOUT OUR REGGAE AND TRENCH TOWN HISTORY TOLD BY THOSE WHO WERE NEVER THERE WITH US?

DO YOU REALLY WANT ME TO TELL YOU THOSE WITH WHOM I HAVE GIVEN THE TRUTH AND WHO HAVE NOT SHARED IT WITH OTHERS- OR WHO HAVE SOLD IT TO OTHERS WHILE KEEPING THE ENRICHMENT FOR THEMSELVES?

LET THE RECORDS REFLECT THAT I HAVE TOLD YOU MANY TRUTHS.

PEOPLE ASK ME QUESTIONS WHICH I WILL OFTEN SHARE WITH YOU IN MY ANSWERS.

I KNOW EACH AND EVERYONE WHO SHARED THE TRENCH TOWN WITH US AND THE CREATION OF REGGAE MUSIC AT THE TIME IT WAS DONE.

WE NEVER SAW THOSE WHOM I HAVE SPOKEN ABOUT WITH US.

TAKING SOMEONE’S PROPERTY- INTELLECTUAL OR OTHERWISE- AND RUNNING AWAY WITH IT, CALLING IT YOUR OWN, WHEN YOU KNOW NOT ABOUT WHAT IT MEANS, OR STANDS FOR,CAN BE HAZARDOUS TO YOUR HEALTH AND CAREER.

REGGAE IS NOT FOR FOOLS. IT IS NOT FOR THIEVES. IT IS NOT FOR MURDERERS. IT IS JAH WORKS FOR THE REDEMPTION OF JAH PEOPLE.

IT IS THE SPIRITUAL MESSAGE OF JAH RASTAFARI PUT TO MUSIC.

YOU CAN ASK THOSE PEOPLE- WHAT KIND OF MUSIC WERE THEY SINGING BEFORE I CREATED REGGAE?

THEN ASK THEM- WHAT KIND OF MUSIC ARE THEY SINGING NOW, AND WHY?

CREATED IN MY BACK YARD IN 1962- TRENCH TOWN REGGAE IS WHAT THEY ALL NOW CHOOSE TO SING AND FROM WHICH THEY MAKE A LIVING WHILE SHARING NOTHING WITH THE POOR PEOPLE OF TRENCH TOWN FROM WHICH IT CAME.

I AM HERE TO SET THE RECORDS STRAIGHT IN OUR TRUTH.

Reggae- THE TRUE HISTORY I HAVE GIVEN TO THE WORLD FOR A HEALING OF ALL NATIONS. I AM HUMBLED TO SEE THE WORKS OF SO MANY WHO HAVE TAKEN UP THE TORCH TO HELP AND TO INSPIRE OTHERS.TOUCHING THE LIVES AND SHARING YOUR GIFTS AND TALENTS WITH OTHERS SO THAT THEY CAN PASS IT ON IN GOOD FAITH IS A MOST HUMBLING EXPERIENCE. MY TRENCH TOWN BRETHRENS, SISTRENS AND I HAVE DONE JUST THAT.THIS IS THE ONLY PLACE YOU WILL FIND REGGAE’S TRUE HISTORY. It is Jah truth. It changeth not!.

EXCERPT (c)  A REGGAE EDUCATION- R.A.S.P.E.C.T1- THE TECHNOTYRANNICAL SOCIETY- THE-P2 INTERSECT. REGGAE REVELATIONS- THE INCONTROVERTIBLE, INDUBITABLE, AND INDOMITABLE TRUTH.

LET THE RECORD REFLECT WHAT MY PEOPLE AND I HAVE SHARED WITH THE WORLD FROM TRENCH TOWN.

WRITTEN WITHOUT PREJUDICE

THEY TOLD US- NOTHING GOOD CAN COME OUT OF TRENCH TOWN.

I TOOK THEM SERIOUSLY, AND CHANGED ALL THAT.

YES! MY TRENCH TOWN PEOPLE AND I, RAS CARDO- CHANGED ALL THAT.

FOR WE TOLD THEM IN THE MESSAGES OF BOB MARLEY AND PETER TOSH- WE REFUSED TO BE WHAT THEY WANTED US TO BE.

THOSE WHO OPENLY SPOKE THE TRUTH BECAME MARTYRS FOR THE MUSIC.

IT IS A GREAT JOY TO BE ABLE  TO TOUCH THE LIVES OF PEOPLE, THEIR MINDS, THEIR CONDITIONS, TO HELP THEM SEE THAT IN THEIR STRUGGLES AND SUFFERINGS, THEY ARE NOT ALONE, THAT INDEED SOMEONE-YOU- CARED ABOUT THEM. THIS IS THE TRUE ESSENCE OF LIFE, THIS IS LOVE IN ITS PUREST SENSE. THIS IS MY -REGGAE FROM TRENCH TOWN. THERE IS NO OTHER.

IT IS THE HIGHEST STANDARD TO LIVE UP TO, AND NOT MANY WANT THAT BURDEN, FOR INDEED THE ROAD IS NEVER EASY. FOR SOMETIMES THE HELPER AND THE HELPED WILL HAVE TO CLING TOGETHER FOR THEIR OWN SURVIVAL.

MY PEOPLE AND I HAVE BEEN THERE FROM THOSE EARLY DAYS OF TRENCH TOWN. I HAVE SEEN A TRENCH TOWN ALL OVER THE WORLD.

YES- GOOD FRIENDS WE HAD AND HAVE LOST ALONG THE WAY.

AS THE MAN- BUJU SINGS- ITS NOT AN EASY ROAD.

I AM HUMBLED BY THE WORKS OF SEEING WHAT I HAVE SHARED WITH OTHERS HELPING TO ENHANCE THE LIVES OF PEOPLE ALL OVER THE WORLD.

FROM TRENCH TOWN- TO HIGH SCHOOL SHARING WITH MY CLASS MATES- WHO LATER SHARED WITH OTHERS- TO THE WORLD MESSENGERS, MUSICIANS AND PLAYERS OF INSTRUMENTS- REGGAE NOW UNIVERSAL, IT IS INDEED A HUMBLING EXPERIENCE.

SO, FROM MY TRENCH TOWN REGGAE, REGGAE OPERA, AND NOW THE AGE OF THE -TECHNOTYRANNICAL SOCIETY. TIME MARCHES ON.

FOR I HAVE WRITTEN IN R.A.S.P.E.C.T1!

WE HAVE CREATED -A TECHNOTYRANNICAL SOCIETY BY OUR LAZINESS, COMPLACENCY, DISUNITY, FAILURE TO TRUST EACH OTHER, FAILURE TO SHARE WHAT KNOWLEDGE AND RESOURCES WE HAVE WITH EACH OTHER, FAILURE TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR OUR ACTIONS, FAILURE TO LOVE AND TO BE FORGIVING TO EACH OTHER, FAILURE TO EDUCATE AND TO LIBERATE OUR PEOPLE AND TO DIRECT OUR WOMEN, FAILURE TO THINK AND ACT DECISIVELY WITH A SENSE OF PURPOSE AND COMMITMENT, FAILURE TO BECOME SPIRITUALLY ONE WITH THE GOD OF OUR CREATION, NOT OF MANKIND, FAILURE TO SEE OURSELVES AS GOD’S CHOSEN PEOPLE- THE ELECT OF JAH. WE HAVE ALLOWED BABYLON SYSTEMS TO CREATE A TECHNOTYRANNICAL SOCIETY SO AS TO ENSLAVE US.

I HAVE SAID THIS BEFORE: -(c) THE TECHNOLOGY WE CREATE WILL ULTIMATELY DETERMINE OUR FATE”.

HOW MANY OF OUR ENEMIES HAVE THE SAME WEAPONS WE CREATED TO DESTROY THEM?

FOR IT IS WRITTEN: ” YE HAVE CORRUPTED MY COVENANT. THE LAW OF TRUTH WAS IN YOUR MOUTH, BUT YE HAVE CORRUPTED IT”.

” FOR I AM THE LORD GOD, I CHANGE NOT”.

PEACE BE WITH YOU ALL.

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

Yes! I DID SAY SEVERAL TIMES IN MY BOOKS AND OTHER WRITINGS, THAT THE MAN- ALAN-“SKILL”- COLE FROM JAMAICA WAS THE ONE WHO FIRST GAVE THE NAME-“GONG”-DESCRIBING BOB MARLEY. ANYONE KNOWING THE TRUE HISTORY WOULD KNOW THIS TRUTH. I HAVE REPEATEDLY SAID THE SAME THING FOR YEARS. THIS IS NOT UP FOR DISCUSSION. ANYONE HAVING A PROBLEM WITH IT CAN STATE THEIR CLAIM. I WAS THE ONE WHO GAVE THE NAME- “ZIGGY”- WHICH BOB LATER GAVE TO ONE OF HIS SONS.

EXCERPT (c) REGGAE TRUTH REVELATIONS BY RAS CARDO. TRENCH TOWN ROOTS REGGAE FOUNDATION.

WRITTEN WITHOUT PREJUDICE AND IN TRUTH.

THERE ARE THOSE WHO WILL SEEK THE TRUTH, AND THERE ARE THOSE WHO WILL SWALLOW ANY LIES AND FABRICATION TOLD TO THEM.

MY TRENCH TOWN REGGAE HAS THE VULTURES, PARASITES, PIRATES, MERCENARY OF FORTUNES, ALWAYS SURROUNDING AND SEEKING TO REAP THAT WHICH THEY DID NOT SOW.

THOSE OF MY BRETHREN AND SISTREN FROM THE EARLY DAYS OF TRENCH TOWN MAY HAVE PASSED ON, BUT THERE ARE THOSE OF US WHO ARE STILL AROUND TO VIGILANTLY GUARD AGAINST THOSE WHO WISH TO STEAL,  TARNISH, AND DESECRATE OUR RICH REGGAE LEGACY.

I AM THE ONE WHO NAMED AND HELPED TO CREATE THIS GENRE OF A MUSICAL FORCE WHICH NOW SPANS THE GLOBE.

THERE IS NO OTHER MUSIC FORCE WHICH SPEAKS ABOUT THE SUFFERINGS AND STRUGGLES OF JAH PEOPLE- POOR PEOPLE.

MY TRENCH TOWN REGGAE WILL ONE DAY HEAL THE NATIONS OF THIS EARTH, REGARDLESS OF THE FORCES OF EVIL IN BABYLON WHOSE AIMS AND INTENTIONS ARE TO DESTROY IT.

I AM AWARE THAT MANY OF THOSE WHO FOLLOW MY WORKS OF TRUTHS DO SO FOR NEFARIOUS REASONS.

WHAT I TELL YOU WILL ALWAYS BE THE TRUTH. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO LIKE WHAT I SAY. IF YOU LIKE THE TRUTH THEN SO BE IT.

MY LIFE EXPERIENCES IS A PART OF ME AND MY HISTORY WITH MY PEOPLE. NO ONE CAN FABRICATE THE TRUTH OF MY WORKS. TRY AS THEY MAY, THEY WILL NEVER BE SUCCESSFUL.

I HAVE CHALLENGED THOSE WHO DARE OVER THE YEARS, BUT THEY OFTEN WITHER AND FADE AWAY. SOME FORMS OF CANCERS KEEPS RECURRING. THEY METASTASIZE AND RETURN WITH GREAT RESILIENCE. THE TRUTH NEVER CHANGES. IT IS JAH TRUTH!

BOB MARLEY AND ALL MY BRETHRENS AND SISTRENS, WITH THE TRENCH TOWN PEOPLE FAMILY AND FRIENDS, WILL NOT BE MOVED INTO OBSOLESCENCE.

THE REGGAE AND WORKS WE HAVE GIVEN TO THE WORLD WILL NEVER FADE AWAY.

ON PAGES 159, 164,180 OF MY BOOK-(c) 2006- REGGAE JAMAICA, THE WAILING OF A PEOPLE- I WROTE ABOUT THE MAN- ALAN- “SKILL”- COLE GIVING THE NAME OF -“GONG”- TO BOB MARLEY.

THE NAME- “TUFF GONG”-GOES TO HIS CREDIT AND I RAS CARDO HAVE THE RECORDS AND EVIDENCE TO PROVE IT.

ON PAGES 123, 131, OF MY BOOK-(c) 2005-THE TRUE TRENCH TOWN STORY. I DID THE SAME.

THIS, I HAVE ALSO DONE IN SEVERAL OF MY MANY WRITINGS AND WORKS FOR THE REGGAE EDUCATION OF THE PEOPLE.

FOR THOSE WHO FAIL TO SEE THE TRUTH AND TO CHECK IT OUT FOR THEMSELVES, I HAVE NO ANSWER. THE TRUTH STANDS ON ITS OWN.

FOR THOSE WHO WILL RECALL THE BLATANT LIES AND FALSEHOODS TOLD BY THOSE WHO HAVE STOLEN THINGS FROM US OVER THE YEARS, I AM SURE THAT YOU WILL UNDERSTAND WHY I MUST ENFORCE THE NECESSARY PRECAUTIONS I HAVE SO OFTEN SPOKEN ABOUT.

CASES ON POINT:- I WILL JUST MENTION TWO IN PASSING.

LEGHORN COGHILE- THE MAN WHO HELPED TO GET BOB MARLEY GOING AND WHO WROTE THE SONG- THEM BELLY FULL- LOST HIS RIGHTS TO HIS SONG IN COURT BY PERJURED AND FALSE TESTIMONIES.

THE CASE IN THE NAME OF- BLACK UHURU- FOUNDED BY MY BRETHRENS- GARTH DENNIS AND DON CARLOS- FAILED TO GIVE THEM THE RIGHTFUL CREDITS THEY DESERVED, AND WAS BLATANTLY STOLEN FROM THEM.

THESE ARE ALL PUBLIC RECORDS NOW, AND I AM SURE THAT YOU KNOW ABOUT THE CASE OF THE BOB MARLEY FIASCO.

TO SEE THE LIFE WORKS OF THESE BRETHRENS TAKEN AWAY FROM THEM IN BABYLON SYSTEM IN AN INSTANT BY THOSE WHO ROB AND STEAL-IS A PAIN NOT EASY TO BEAR BY MANY.

WE ALL GREW UP POOR, AND NEVER ROBBED AND STOLE FROM ANYONE.

BOB TOLD THE WORLD-” WE REFUSED TO BE WHAT THEY WANTED US TO BE.” WE DID NOT BECOME THE KILLERS AND MURDERERS THEY WANTED US TO BE.

I, RAS CARDO COULD TELL YOU MORE, BUT IT WOULD TAKE ANOTHER LIFE TIME TO DO SO. I HAVE THE RICH AND DETAILED HISTORY OF OUR TRENCH TOWN LIVITY.

NO ETHNOMUSICOLOGIST, COLLEGE PROFESSORS, GUINNESS BOOK OF RECORDS, MUSIC ENCYCLOPEDIA, SOCIOLOGIST, ETC, ETC CAN TELL YOU WHAT I KNOW AND LIVED FROM THOSE TRENCH TOWN DAYS.

I AM THE KEEPER OF THE SPIRITUAL ARK OF THE TRENCH TOWN REGGAE COVENANT.

I AM RAS CARDO REGGAE- ORIGINAL WAILING WAILER, REGGAE CREATOR, LEGEND FROM TRENCH TOWN.

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

REGGAE REVELATIONS- THE NEW BOOK BY RAS CARDO- SOON TO BE RELEASED. I WILL SHARE THIS EXCERPT CORRECTING SO MANY FALSEHOODS AND WRONGS. THE REAL TRENCH TOWN -“CULTURE YARD”-was behind my yard and that of Joe Higgs. It was never on first street as some would have the world believe. It was there before, during, and after Bob Marley came and left. I am Ras Cardo from trench town.

EXCERPT (c) REGGAE REVELATIONS BY RAS CARDO REGGAE FROM TRENCH TOWN.

WRITTEN AS TRUTH.

THE CULTURE YARD IN TRENCH TOWN WAS AND ALWAYS IS THE PLACE WHERE THE CONGREGATION OF YOUTHS FROM ALL OVER THE CITY OF KINGSTON AND RURAL AREAS OF THE ISLAND CAME TO JOIN THE TRENCH TOWN PEOPLE.

IT WAS THE PLACE IN OUR TIMES WHERE THE CREATIVE JUICES OF SO MANY TALENTED YOUTHS FIND A WAY OF EXPRESSION.

IT WAS AT THE BACK OF MY YARD AND THE ADJOINING YARD OF JOE HIGGS IN THE TENEMENT COMPLEX IN WHICH WE LIVED.

IT WAS NEVER IN OR ON FIRST STREET WHERE BOB HAD FRIENDS WHEN HE CAME AND CHOSE TO SPEND TIME THERE WITH THEM.

IN FACT WE WOULD ROAM ALL OVER THE PLACE FROM ONE STREET TO ANOTHER.

I WILL NOT GIVE THE DETAILS HERE, BUT THIS TRUTH MUST BE TOLD AS SO MANY HAVE ASKED ME ABOUT THIS YARD.

I CAN GIVE YOU THE NAMES OF EVERYONE WHO EVER LIVED AND PLAYED WITH US IN TRENCH TOWN DURING OUR TIMES THERE.

AND I MEAN- EVERYONE!

TOOTS WAS NEVER THERE WITH US.- DURING OUR REGGAE CREATION.

JIMMY CLIFF WAS NEVER THERE WITH US- DURING OUR REGGAE CREATION.

NO ONE FROM THE LOCAL OR FOREIGN MEDIA WAS THERE WITH US.

NO AMERICAN, EUROPEAN, CANADIAN OR ANY OTHER FOREIGN NATIONAL WAS THERE WITH US.

SO WHERE DID ALL THESE PEOPLE COME FROM AS BEING INVOLVED WITH OUR HISTORY?

THIS IS NOT A HISTORY WHICH SOMEONE CAN FABRICATE AND GET AWAY WITH BECAUSE IF YOU LACK THE DETAILS WHICH I HAVE, YOU LACK THE TRUTH.

THOSE WHO HAVE A PROBLEM WITH MY REVELATIONS SHOULD KNOW WHY THEY FEAR THE TRUTH.

IN ALL MY REVELATIONS I HAVE REVEALED THE TRUTHS. SO MANY PEOPLE HAVE GONE ON, BUT JAH TRUTH MUST BE TOLD.

I HAVE NO PROBLEM WITH ANYONE CALLING OUR AREAS PLACES OF CULTURE IN THE YARDS WE LIVED.

IN FACT TRENCH TOWN WAS THE EPICENTER OF JAMAICAN CULTURE DURING OUR TIMES THERE. MY BACKYARD AND THAT OF ADJOINING JOE HIGGS WAS THE SOUP IN THE POT- WELL HOT.

THIS TOO AND MORE WILL BE REVEALED IN MY SOON TO COME REGGAE REVELATIONS. PEACE!

BUILDING A DATA BASE TO TRACK PEOPLE WHOM YOU MAY FEAR FOR WHATEVER REASONS WILL NEVER ACHIEVE YOUR DESIRED RESULTS, AND THOSE 73% OF SO- CALLED CHRISTIANS WHO THINK IT IS RIGHT AND JUST TO DO SO ARE MISTAKEN. YOU WILL SEE A MAN’S FACE, BUT YOU WILL NEVER KNOW HIS HEART. THERE ARE OTHER WAYS TO SOLVE THIS DILEMMA. IT IS WRITTEN-” FOR THIS, THEY ARE WILLINGLY IGNORANT”.

EXCERPT (c) IN THE STRUGGLE OF GOOD OVER EVIL, THE TRUTH MUST PREVAIL.- RAS CARDO REGGAE.

WRITTEN WITHOUT PREJUDICE OR FEAR FOR THE LOVE OF ALL PEOPLE IN THE TRUTH.

CAVEAT: FOR THOSE WHO MAY BE OFFENDED BY THESE TRUTHS I MUST ASK THAT YOU READ NO FURTHER.

TRUTH: NOT EVERYONE IS A DEVOUT MURDERER, HATER, CHRISTIAN OR ANTI- CHRISTIAN.

TRUTH: NOT EVERYONE SHARES THE SAME BELIEFS, LIKES OR DISLIKES.

TRUTH: EVERYONE WHO IS ABLE TO READ WHAT IS HERE WRITTEN IS IN SOME WAY, FORM OR SHAPE, A MEMBER OF THE HUMAN FAMILY(AS WE CALL IT).

TRUTH: AMERICA IS A NATION OF IMMIGRANTS, BUILT BY PEOPLES FROM ALL WALKS AND NATIONS OF LIFE.

TRUTH: MOST OF THE CORE VALUES THAT MADE AMERICA WHAT  IT IS TODAY WERE PUT IN PLACE BY PEOPLES WHO CAME TO THE FREEDOM THAT IS AMERICA.

MANY OF THOSE ON THE MAYFLOWER FLED THE PERSECUTIONS IN EUROPE. THEY TOO WERE REFUGEES.

MY QUESTION IS- DID ANYONE PUT THEM ON A TRACKING DATABASE?

BUT WHO CAN JUDGE THE MINDS AND HEARTS OF MEN?

TRUTH: ANY RESTRICTIONS TO THE HUMAN FREEDOM THAT IS AMERICA, OR ANY ATTEMPTS TO CAUSE ENSLAVEMENT TO THE FREEDOM OF ITS CITIZENS, BORN OUT OF FEAR OF THE ENEMY ,WILL , IN MANY WAYS WEAKEN AND SEVERELY COMPROMISE THE SAME CORE VALUES WHICH MADE IT STRONG IN THE FIRST PLACE.

TRUTH: NOW WE HAVE THE WORLD WIDE WEB. PEOPLE FOR GOOD OR EVIL CAN AND WILL COMMUNICATE IN WAYS TOO LEGION TO MENTION.

TRUTH: THE MINDS AND HEARTS OF MEN DO NOT ALWAYS WALK IN THE WAYS MOST DESIROUS TO THE KEEPING OF A WELL BALANCED SOCIETY.

TRUTH: MY LATE PROPHETIC AND DISCERNING MOTHER ALWAYS SAID- ” IF GOD WAS LIKE MAN”.-…… SHE LEFT ME TO FILL IN THE REST OF THIS STATEMENT .

TRUTH: THE YOUNG MINDS ARE LISTENING, LEARNING, FEELING, AND ABSORBING THE GRIEF AND PAIN.

TRUTH: AS HUMAN BEINGS IN THE FLESH, WE WILL NEVER BE ABLE TO FULLY COMPREHEND, AND DUPLICATE THE WORKINGS OF THE HUMAN MIND.

TRUTH: WE WILL NEVER BE ABLE TO CREATE LIFE IN HUMAN FORM AS WE OURSELVES ARE.

TRUTH: OUR GREATEST FEAR IS NOT KNOWING WHAT TRULY LIES BEHIND THE DOORS OF DEATH.

TRUTH: WE CAN END LIVES, INCLUDING OUR OWN IN AN INSTANT. BEYOND THAT, WE KNOW -NOTHING.

TRUTH: MOST PEOPLE, IN SOME WAY BELIEVE IN A CREATOR- CALLED BY MANY NAMES, IN MANY RELIGIONS CREATED BY MAN, IN HIS EFFORT TO UNDERSTAND THE MYSTERY THAT IS LIFE, AND DEATH.

LISTEN: . A CARBON ATOM CANNOT BE MORE THAN IT IS, AND SO CAN BE SAID OF ALL THE ELEMENTS WHICH MAKES MAN PHYSICAL.

BEYOND THAT- THERE IS A SPIRITUAL REALM WHICH MAN FEARS BECAUSE HE IS NOT ABLE TO UNDERSTAND IT.

SINCE TIME IMMEMORIAL, MAN HAS BEEN TRYING TO UNDERSTAND MAN.

SOME SAY- ” THE PROPER STUDY OF MANKIND IS MAN”. I MUST DIFFER WITH THIS BUT I DO NOT HAVE THE TIME TO DETAIL MY REASONING WITH YOU.

WE HAVE COME TO A TIME IN OUR WORLD WHEN VIOLENCE IS AT THE EXTREMES, AND IS SHOWN IN GRAPHIC WAYS WHICH DISQUIETS US, AND PUTS MANY IN FEAR AND PANIC.

I AM MORE AMAZED AT HOW SOME CHRISTIANS ARE FANNING THE FLAMES OF FEAR IN AMERICA WHILE NOT BOLDLY SPEAKING OUT AGAINST THOSE WHO ARE DYING DAILY FOR THEIR BELIEFS IN OTHER WORLD PLACES.

I MUST WONDER- JUST HOW MUCH OF A CHRISTIAN ARE THEY.

I AND I KNOW THIS TRUTH: JAH DID NOT GIVE US A SPIRIT OF TIMIDITY, BUT A SPIRIT OF POWER, OF LOVE AND SELF- DISCIPLINE.

KNOW THE TIMES YOU ARE LIVING IN, AND WASTE NO TIME IN IDLE CHATTER, FOOLISH AND STUPID ARGUMENTS.

VIOLENCE DISQUIETS OUR SOULS AND STIRS THE EMOTIONS OF ANGER AND OUTRAGE FROM WITHIN. WE MUST HOWEVER, TRY NOT TO LET OURSELVES GET LOST IN THE TRAGEDIES OF THE MOMENT WHICH BESET US.

I AM SURE BY NOW THAT YOU WILL SEE THE SPIRITUAL FORCES OF EVIL THAT THE WHOLE WORLD NOW FACES.

I , RAS CARDO SAY, GUARD THE GOOD DEPOSIT THAT JAH HAS ENTRUSTED TO YOU. GUARD IT WITH THE HELP OF THE HOLY SPIRIT WHO LIVES IN YOU.

MAY THE PEACE OF JAH BE WITH YOU ALL IN THIS TROUBLED WORLD.

Yes! LET ME TELL THE WORLD AGAIN- THE FIRST ASIAN JAMAICANS TO BE INTRODUCED TO REGGAE WERE THE BROTHERS- GEOFFREY AND MICHAEL CHUNG. THEY WERE MY BELOVED CLASS MATES AT SCHOOL. GEOFFREY AND MICHAEL BECAME THE FIRST EVER, ASIAN PIONEERS OF THE MUSIC AND INFLUENCED SEVERAL ASIANS WORLDWIDE. GEOFFREY PASSED ON AND MICHAEL CONTINUES THE LEGACY. THIS IS THE TRUTH.

EXCERPT (c)  A REGGAE EDUCATION. REGGAE TRUTH IN THE HISTORY. RAS CARDO REVEAL TRUTH.

WITHOUT PREJUDICE

CAVEAT:

DON’T WASTE YOUR TIME LOOKING FOR THIS TRUE HISTORY IN THE SO-CALLED “AUTHENTIC BOOKS AND ENCYCLOPEDIAS” OUT THERE- YOU WILL NOT FIND IT, UNLESS THEY HAVE PLAGIARIZED IT FROM ME.

THIS TRUTH, THIS HISTORY IS SACROSANCT.

LET ME BRIEFLY TELL YOU THIS:

THE FIRST EVER ASIAN- JAMAICAN REGGAE PIONEERS ARE THE CHUNG BROTHERS- GEOFFREY AND MICHAEL.

WE WERE SCHOOL BRETHRENS AT ST. GEORGES COLLEGE- JAMAICA.

GEOFFREY WAS MY CLOSEST CLASS FRIEND, BRETHREN AND CLASS MATE. I TOOK THE TRENCH TOWN MUSIC TO HIM. HE FELL IN LOVE WITH IT , AND THE REST THEY SAY IS HISTORY.

WELL, ITS THE DETAILED HISTORY STILL IN MY KEEP AS THE KEEPER OF THE ARK OF THE REGGAE COVENANT.

GEOFFREY PASSED AWAY, MICHAEL CONTINUES THE LEGACY. NEVER A DAY PASSES THAT I DO NOT REFLECT AND MISSED THEIR COMPANY.

THERE IS A MOST SPECIAL BOND BETWEEN ALL OF US. MORE THAN FAMILY.

THOSE WHO ARE ASIANS AND INVOLVED WITH REGGAE OWES A SPECIAL GRATITUDE TO THESE PIONEERS. THEY MADE THE WAY POSSIBLE FOR OTHERS TO FOLLOW.

I RAS CARDO SAY – THEY ARE ALL FROM OUR ONE-LOVE REGGAE FAMILY.

TODAY- IN 2015- WHEN I LOOK, AND JUST BEGINNING TO SEE, ASIAN- ACTORS MAKING THEIR MARK ON TELEVISION AND ON THE BIG SCREENS OF HOLLYWOOD, ONE WONDERS WHO WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR HOLDING THEM BACK/DOWN.

I AM HERE TO MAKE THE WORLD KNOW THE TRUTH ABOUT ALL THOSE WHO MUST BE SO HONORED IN REGGAE MUSIC WHICH NOW FLOWS TO THE FOUR CORNERS OF THE GLOBE.

WITH THE SWORD OF THE SPIRIT OF TRUTH I WILL PIERCE ANY VEIL OF EVIL WHICH AIMS TO KEEP OUR PEOPLE AND OUR WORKS DOWN.

(c) RAS CARDO SPEAKS. A REGGAE EDUCATION . ALL RIGHTS RESERVED GLOBALLY.

LET  ALL THOSE WHO HAVE TRUTHFULLY DONE THE WORKS FOR THE PEOPLE BE SO HONORED.

VETERANS DAY-2015, USA. MY PERSONAL THANKS TO YOU ALL FOR GRANTING ME THE PRIVILEGE TO SERVE YOU. THE MEMORIES IN THE PRAYERS, THE HUGS, THE STORIES BEFORE YOU GO AND AFTER, FOR THOSE FORTUNATE TO RETURN TO MY HELP. THE HONOR IS NOT FOR ME, BUT FOR ALL OF YOU. THANKS! THESE MEMORIES WILL LIVE FOREVER.

EXCERPT (c) 2015- MY SPECIAL VETERANS DAY TRIBUTE.

FOR THOSE WHO MAY NOT BE AWARE OF THIS WEEK- HONORING RADIOLOGICAL PROFESSIONALS IN THE USA, I WILL ASK ALL THOSE INVOLVED TO DEDICATE THIS TIME TO ALL OUR VETERANS.

THE HONOR IS NOT FOR US IN AS MUCH AS WE SERVE OTHERS, BUT MUST BE GIVEN TO THOSE WHO CARRY A MUCH GREATER BURDEN OF SACRIFICING THEIR LIVES FOR THE FREEDOM OF ALL.

I AM ASKING ALL RADIOLOGICAL PROFESSIONALS IN THIS COUNTRY TO PASS THIS HONOR ON TO THE HONOR OF OUR VETERANS.

I CAN REMEMBER THE PRAYERS WE SHARED IN THE CONFINES OF MY ROOM BEFORE YOUR DEPLOYMENT AS I COMPLETE YOUR EXAMINATIONS. SOME OF YOUR FAMILIES I HAVE PERSONALLY MET, AND COME TO KNOW OVER THE YEARS.

I CAN REMEMBER CARING FOR THOSE WHO ARE FORTUNATE TO RETURN, BUT IN NEED FOR FURTHER HELP.

SURELY, FOR ME, IT IS A PRIVILEGE TO SERVE, WITH A LICENSE TO PRACTICE. SERVING OTHERS IS WHAT I DO BEST.

HOW CAN I FORGET THE GOOD TIMES, YET SAD TIMES WE HAVE HAD, AS WE CRIED AND PRAYED, AND TALKED, AND HUGGED.

I MUST REMEMBER THE WORDS FROM MY TRENCH TOWN BRETHREN IN SONG- “GOOD FRIENDS WE HAD, AND GOOD FRIENDS WE HAVE LOST ALONG THE WAY”.- FOR THOSE WHO NEVER RETURN-ALIVE.

A SONG FROM MY TRENCH TOWN DAYS, AND THE SHARING WITH MY PEOPLE.” I’M JUST A BUFFALO SOLDIER.”

THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES AND THE DIGNIFIED PRIVILEGE TO SERVE YOU .

IN THIS MOST TROUBLED WORLD AS WE HAVE TODAY, YOUR EFFORTS WILL BE UNENDING AND MOST DEMANDING.

I WILL CONTINUE TO PRAY FOR YOUR PROTECTION AND GUIDANCE FROM THE ALMIGHTY GOD OF ALL CREATION. HE WILL MAKE SURE THAT ALL WARS WILL CEASE.

MUCH LOVE AND RESPECT TO SERVING YOU. PEACE, FROM RAS CARDO.
