REGGAE TRUTH HISTORY.- JUNIOR BRAITHWAITE, AND I, RAS CARDO, BEARS FULL RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE CREATION OF -BOB MARLEY AND HIS GROUP OF WAILERS- WE PASSED THE TORCH TO HIM ALONG WITH THE NAME WE HAD CREATED FOR OURSELVES. THIS GOT HIS MUSIC OFF THE GROUND. WE, THE ORIGINAL WAILING WAILERS,GUIDED HIM, SINCE HE HAD NO CHOSEN NAME OF HIS OWN. WE ARE THE ORIGINAL REGGAE FOUNDATIONAL LEGENDS AND PIONEERS. THERE IS NO OTHER. THOSE WHO CAME AFTER, INHERITED FROM OUR INITIAL WORKS WITH BOB. THIS STANDS INFALLIBLE AND INEFFABLY TRUE. I AM RAS CARDO WHO CREATED THIS GENRE. THERE IS NO OTHER. WE COME FROM TRENCH TOWN. DID NOT BOB MARLEY TOLD YOU THAT? YOU CANNOT CHANGE THIS HISTORY. YOU CANNOT FABRICATE THIS HISTORY NOR IGNORE THE TRUTH OF THE TRENCH TOWN LEGENDS AND PEOPLE WHO MADE THIS POSSIBLE FOR BOB MARLEY, PETER TOSH AND OTHERS TO CARRY IT FORWARD. I AM RAS CARDO WHO CREATED, NAMED, AND SHARE IT WITH MY TRENCH TOWN PEOPLE. NOW THE WHOLE WORLD KNOWS FROM WHENCE AND FROM WHOM IT CAME. JUNIOR BRAITHWAITE AND I MADE IT POSSIBLE. THIS IS TRUTH. (c) RAS CARDO SPEAKS.

EXCERPT (c)  A REGGAE EDUCATION HISTORICAL FOUNDATION- RAS CARDO REGGAE SPEAKS.

WRITTEN WITHOUT PREJUDICE;

WARNING!    WARNING! WARNING!

REMEMBERING THEM ALL- REMEMBERING JUNIOR BRAITHWAITE- ORIGINAL FOUNDATION WAILING WAILER, AND ALL THOSE GONE BEFORE.

I, RAS CARDO WILL NEVER FORGET THEM OR THEIR WORKS FOR THE PEOPLE. THE WORLD HAS A LOT TO LEARN FROM MY TRENCH TOWN REGGAE CREATION.

REGGAE COVERS EVERY FACET OF HUMAN LIFE AND EXISTENCE. IT HAS TOLD YOU MANY THINGS. MODERN SLAVERY IS THE BLACK ECONOMY- THE TRIANGULAR TRADE ROUTE. MY REGGAE SPEAKS ABOUT ALL THAT, AND MORE.

LET THE CRITICS, ENEMIES, THE JUDASES, THE VAMPIRES, VULTURES, THIEVES, AND MURDERERS WHO HAVE DONE HARM TO OUR PEOPLE, OUR MESSENGERS AND OUR REGGAE MUSIC AND PROPHETS KNOW THIS:

THOSE WHO WOULD LOVE TO FORGET ABOUT THOSE OF US WHO HAVE DONE SO MUCH FOR THIS MUSIC FROM ITS BIRTH IN MY BACKYARD IN TRENCH TOWN, AND WOULD AIM TO DECEIVE THE WORLD IN OUR HISTORY, THEY WILL NEVER SUCCEED.

OVER THE YEARS I HAVE MADE KNOWN IN TRUTH TO THE WORLD THOSE OF US WHO SHOULD BE SUNG, BUT  ARE STILL REMAINING UNSUNG.

THE MUSIC INDUSTRY, BE IT IN JAMAICA, USA, UK, CANADA, OR ELSEWHERE DO NOT DICTATE TO US, AS TRENCH TOWN HISTORIANS, WHEN TO REVEAL CERTAIN TRUTHS.

REGGAE AND THE MUSIC OF RASTAFARI DO NOT LEND ITSELF TO SECULARISM.

NO GOVERNMENT, PUBLIC OR PRIVATE ENTITY, HAS OUR TRUE HISTORY AND LEGACY. IT IS VESTED IN -WE, THE PEOPLE.

THE MANY ATTEMPTS MADE BY SOME TO PLUNDER, STEAL AND KILL, HAVE SUFFERED CATASTROPHIC FAILURES OVER THE YEARS.

TRENCH TOWN REGGAE IS NOW 55 YEARS STRONG, WHILE SOME ARE CALLING FOR ITS DEMISE.

MY TRENCH TOWN REGGAE LIVES FOR THE PEOPLE.

WITHOUT GOING INTO ANY DETAILS I WILL SAY THIS: JUNIOR BRAITHWAITE AND I, MADE IT POSSIBLE FOR THERE TO HAVE BEEN- A BOB MARLEY WITH HIS WAILERS.

THERE WAS NO- BOB MARLEY AND THE WAILERS GROUP- IN TRENCH TOWN. WE DID NOT LIVE A LIFE OF DIVISION OR SEPARATION. WE WERE ONE PEOPLE, WITH- ONE LOVE FOR ALL.

BOB MARLEY WAS -ONE OF US, AND BECAUSE OF US, HE WAS ABLE TO PURSUE HIS DESIRES.

WE LOVED HIM AND PROTECTED HIM. HE LOVED AND LIVED FOR THE PEOPLE, ESPECIALLY THE POOR.

THERE WAS NEVER A DIVISIVE SEPARATION, NOR INCLINATION, OR SUSPECT OF TRUST AMONGST US. THERE WAS NEVER A PLAN TO DIVIDE AND CONQUER.

FOR THOSE WHO ARE FOOLISH TO ASK- WHATS IN A NAME? LET ME ASK- WHATS YOUR INTENT?

I WILL ASK YOU- WHY THE NAME -COCOA COLA, OR PEPSI, OR KFC, OR MCDONALDS?

I DO NOT CARE TO KNOW WHY THEY BRAND, NOR WHAT IS IN THEIR SECRET FORMULATIONS, BUT I WILL TELL YOU THIS-

REGGAE IS NOT A NAME FOR THE BRANDING OF PRODUCTS TO SELL AS COMMODITIES IN THE MARKET PLACE.

THE SONG-MELLOW MOOD- BY BOB MARLEY- IS NOT A SODA DRINK.

THOSE ONLINE SITES WHO LIKES TO ASSOCIATE MY REGGAE MESSAGES, PICTURES SONGS, ESSAYS AND OTHER WRITINGS IN THE SELLING OF ADDS- BEWARE! 

SO, I ASK- WHY THE NAME- BOB MARLEY, AND THE WAILERS?

IN THE INDUSTRY OF MUSIC- NAME -IS USED AS A LABELING TOOL TO TURN PEOPLE INTO COMMODITIES FOR SALE, TO TURN PEOPLE INTO PRODUCTS FOR THE MARKET PLACE.

THIS STRATEGY IS CALLED- BRANDING- FOR SALE.

I AM SURE YOU ALL GET THE POINT I AM MAKING.

WITH THE BLESSINGS AND LOVE WHICH DWELLS WITHIN US- BOB MARLEY WAS ABLE TO MOVE ALONG WITH HIS WISHES, BUT JUNIOR AND I HAVE NEVER LEFT HIM.WE SHARED THE SAME LOVE FOR PETER TOSH, AND NEVER WAS THERE ANY HATRED OR ANIMOSITY BETWEEN US ALL.

THE MEDIA, ESPECIALLY THE BRITISH MEDIA LIED TO THE WORLD AND TOLD PEOPLE THE MANY FALSEHOODS WHICH CLOUD OUR TRUE HISTORY TO THIS DAY.

HOWEVER, THE PEOPLE HAVE NOW SEEN THE LIGHT OF TRUTH IN MY WORKS.

THE ENEMIES HAVE MADE SURE THAT HE WOULD NOT BE AROUND TODAY TO SPEAK HIS TRUTHS, BECAUSE THEY KNOW THAT THEY WOULD BE OUT OF BUSINESS.

I CAN SPEAK FOR THEM, FOR THEY CONFIDED IN I AND I.

WHEN I SPEAK, I DO SO FOR ALL OF US, OF ONE MIND. THESE ARE LIFELONG BRETHRENS WHO LOVE JAH PEOPLE.

I HAVE SAID THIS MANY TIMES IN MY WORKS TO THE PEOPLE:

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 WITH THE INTENT OF GETTING RID OF THEM.

I AM RAS CARDO REGGAE CREATOR, HONORING THE FOUNDATIONAL LEGENDS OF REGGAE.
