LISTEN! MOST OF THE WORLD LOVES A HYPOCRITE- THOSE PEOPLE WHO WILL JUST SAY YES TO ANYONE AND ANYTHING AS LONG AS THEY CAN GET SOMETHING.MY PEOPLE KNOW THAT I AM NOT A SELL -OUT, A JUDAS, OR BETRAYER. IF YOU LIKE OR LOVE THE TRUTH THEN YOU WILL LIKE OR LOVE I. THE CHOICE IS YOURS. BOB MARLEY AND PETER TOSH PLACED THEIR TRUST IN PEOPLE WHO BETRAYED THEM. AT THEIR DYING MOMENTS THEY WERE ALONE WHILE OTHERS FLED.

EXCERPT (c) A REGGAE EDUCATION

WRITTEN WITH TRUTH FOR THE POSTERITY OF OUR PEOPLE.

TO ALL TO WHOM THESE PRESENTS COME: IN RE: PETER TOSH AND BOB MARLEY.

ASK YOURSELVES– WHY DIDN’T THOSE WHO NOW WRITE BIOGRAPHIES ABOUT THEM FAILED TO DO SO WHILE THEY WERE ALIVE?

WHY IS IT THAT THOSE WHO WRITE ABOUT US NEVER WERE WITH US, THEY ALMOST ALWAYS COME FROM A DIFFERENT COUNTRY?

AREN’T JAMAICANS FULLY CAPABLE AND COMPETENT TO WRITE ABOUT THEIR OWN HISTORY?

WHY IS IT THAT SOME OF US FEEL ITS OK FOR OTHERS TO WRITE TRASH ABOUT US AND WE SIT SILENT AND SAY OR DO NOTHING?

LISTEN: A LOT OF THE THINGS THEY WRITE ABOUT BOB MARLEY AND PETER TOSH THEY WOULD NOT DARE TO WRITE IF THEY WERE ALIVE TODAY.

MY RESPONSIBILITY NOW, AS  ONE WHO CAME FROM THE REGGAE SOURCE AND KNEW THEM PERSONALLY, SPENDING MANY HOURS WITH THEM UNTIL THEIR UNTIMELY DEMISE- IS TO PROTECT AND PRESERVE THE TRUTHS THEY ALL MADE FOR THE POSTERITY OF OUR PEOPLE.

THIS IS ALSO MY HISTORY AND LIVITY. I AM THE CREATOR OF REGGAE, AND THOSE WHO WRITE ABOUT REGGAE BEGINNING AS A MUSIC BEING RECORDED DO NOT KNOW WHAT THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT.

I HAVE SAID THIS MANY TIMES- TOOTS AND JIMMY CLIFF HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH REGGAE CREATION.CLANCY ECCLES HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH IT AND SO WERE MANY MORE WHOM THEY HAVE LIED TO YOU ABOUT.

THIS HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH THEM PERSONALLY. IT IS A STATEMENT OF FACT AND TRUTH.

IF YOU ARE GOING TO WRITE ABOUT BOB MARLEY ON HIS TOURS THEN SAY SO. DO THE SAME FOR PETER TOSH.

YOU MET THE RASTAMAN ON THEIR MISSION, AND NOW TELL THE WORLD THAT YOU KNOW THEM WITH PAGES FILLED WITH FABRICATION HE SAYS, SHE SAY, HEAR SAY FROM SOME OF THE MOST UNRELIABLE OF SOURCES.

BUT, DO NOT WRITE IT AS IF YOU KNOW THEM AND THEIR MISSION.

THESE WERE DIGNIFIED AND RESPECTABLE BRETHRENS OF MINE WHO GAVE LOVE AND TRUST TO OTHERS UNCONDITIONALLY.

DO NOT WRITE IT LIKE SOME LITTLE OPPORTUNITY IN WHICH THEY GAVE YOU THE PERMISSION TO COME CLOSE TO THEM TO ASK.

BECAUSE YOU DID NOT REALLY KNOW WHAT QUESTIONS TO ASK OF THEM, AND THOSE THAT YOU ASKED WERE STUPID ENOUGH TO ELICIT A STUPID ANSWER.

HOW MANY TIMES HAVE YOU SEEN AND HEARD THE MEDIA WRITING ABOUT -BUNNY WAILER SAYING THAT HE WAS THE ONLY SURVIVING WAILER?

HOW MANY TIMES HAVE YOU SEEN THE MEDIA SAYING THAT BOB MARLEY AND PETER TOSH WERE AT WAR? NOT TRUE! NEVER TRUE!

WHERE, AND FROM WHOM DID THEY GET THEIR INFORMATION, AND HOW RELIABLE  AND VERIFIABLE  WAS IT?

I AM SURE THAT THEY THOUGHT THAT NO ONE WOULD CONTEST THEM ON WHAT THEY WRITE.- AND WHENEVER I DO THEY ALL KEEP SILENT.

I HAVE GIVEN THEM YEARS TO RESPOND, BUT TO NO AVAIL.

THEY WOULD LIKE TO TELL THE WORLD THAT I NEVER LIVED IN TRENCH TOWN, OR THAT I NEVER MENTORED OR KNEW THESE BRETHRENS AND TRENCH TOWN PEOPLE.

THEY ARE TRYING TO ERASE OUR NAMES FROM THE HISTORY OF REGGAE WHICH SPEAKS OF OUR WORKS AND GENESIS.

ASK THEM- WHAT THE REAL MISSION AND PURPOSE OF REGGAE REALLY IS- THEY CANNOT TELL YOU.

MY WORKS OF TRUTH HAVE LAID THE FOUNDATION FOR THE TRUE HISTORY OF OUR REGGAE LIVITY TO LIVE IN POSTERITY FOR OUR PEOPLE.

NOTHING CAN ,AND WILL EVER CHANGE THAT. IT IS FINISHED! IT IS DONE, THE CORNERSTONE HAS BEEN LAID.
