FOR ALL THOSE QUESTIONS ASKED OF ME- I WILL SAY THIS COLLECTIVELY TO THE SEEKERS OF -REGGAE TRUTHS- YOU HAVE TO BE READY TO SEEK TRUTH IN A WORLD SO FULL OF LIES, DECEPTIONS, PREVARICATIONS, AND ILLUSIONS. IN THE END, WHEN YOU FIND IT, YOUR SOUL WILL BE REFRESHED. I HAVE HELPED COUNTLESS PEOPLE ALONG THE REGGAE PATH TO TRUTH. I AM , RAS CARDO WHO CREATED REGGAE. THERE IS NO OTHER.

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

THE TRUTH- REGGAE TRUTH- WRITTEN WITHOUT PREJUDICE, MALICE OR APOLOGIES.

I WILL TELL THE WORLD THAT ALL OF MY WORKS AND WRITINGS TO DATE ON MY TRENCH TOWN REGGAE CREATION HAS BEEN THE TRUTH.

I HAVE OPENLY AND TRUTHFULLY TOLD THE WORLD THAT THERE ARE CERTAIN DETAILS OF TRUTHS THAT I WILL NOT READILY REVEAL, UNTIL, AND IF I FIND IT FITTING TO DO SO.

I HAVE NO SET TIME FRAME TO DISCLOSE CERTAIN TRUTHS TO THE ENEMIES OF REGGAE WHOSE AIMS AND INTENTIONS ARE TO DESTROY AND TO DECEIVE THE POOR.

THIS IS THE YEAR -2016- TAKE A LOOK AT TRENCH TOWN. TELL ME WHAT YOU SEE.

THEY HAVE TRIED IN VAIN TO DISCREDIT, DECEIVE, AND TO DESTROY THE WORKS THAT OUR REGGAE FOUNDATION LEGENDS FROM TRENCH TOWN HAVE CREATED.

THE SUFFERINGS WE ENDURED IN TRENCH TOWN, AND WHICH MY PEOPLE SING ABOUT ARE ALSO A PART OF MY HISTORY AND LIVITY.

THOSE WHO LIKE TO WRITE AND TALK ABOUT BOB MARLEY, PETER TOSH AND OTHERS FROM OUR DAYS DO SO WITH TOTAL DISREGARD AND IN IGNORANCE OF OUR TRUE HISTORY. MANY OF THEM WERE NEVER A PART OF OUR EXPERIENCES, OR EVEN CLOSE.

THEY WILL BEGIN BY TAKING YOU DIRECTLY INTO THE MUSIC AND TOURS OF THE WORKS OF THESE BRETHRENS, THEN FILL YOUR CUP WITH THE HE SAYS, SHE SAYS , THEY SAY- HEARSAY STORIES AND INTERACTIONS OF THOSE AROUND.

THEY MAY/MAY NOT TRY TO CLOUD YOUR THOUGHTS BY TELLING YOU JUST HOW MANY PEOPLE THEY HAVE SPOKEN TO WHO SAID THEY KNOW US.

THEY ALREADY KNOW THAT YOU MAY NOT BE ABLE TO ASK THEM QUESTIONS AS TO YOUR CONCERNS ON THE CREDIBILITY AND AUTHENTICITY OF THEIR STATEMENTS.

LISTEN: HOW MANY PEOPLE TODAY TRULY WANT TO SEEK AND FIND TRUTH.?

HOW MANY PEOPLE HAVE TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF YOUR IGNORANCE BEFORE YOU DISCOVER THAT YOU HAVE BEEN DUPED?

WELL, IF YOU HAVE READ WHAT SOME HAVE WRITTEN ABOUT US, YOU WILL SEE EXACTLY WHAT I MEAN.

IN MY WORKS AND WRITINGS, I HAVE MADE IT OPEN AND CLEAR THAT THOSE WHO HAVE DOUBTS MUST VERIFY AND SEEK TRUTH. MANY HAVE ASKED ME QUESTIONS AS TO THEIR UNDERSTANDING OF OUR HISTORY. THIS IS THE SAME REASON WHY I ANSWER THEM HERE AND ELSEWHERE.

IN MY DELIVERY OF REGGAE TRUTH, YOU WILL COME TO KNOW THAT I  WRITE OR SPEAK – IN THE FIRST PERSON- OF ENGLISH GRAMMAR AND LANGUAGE. I WAS THERE. I DID THIS OR THAT. I SAW THEM DO THIS OR THAT. THIS WAS SO, ALL FROM THE EXPERIENCE OF BEING THERE.

NOW: PICTURE THIS- A GROUP OF YOUTHS TRYING TO MAKE MUSIC TO SEND A MESSAGE TO THE WORLD ABOUT THEIR CONDITIONS, IN A COUNTRY AND A CITY WHICH OSTRACIZED THEM, AND BASICALLY SAID THEY DID NOT EXISTS.

BUT THEN, I ASKED- IF WE DID NOT EXISTS- WHY ARE THEY TRYING TO GET RID OF SOMETHING THEY SAID DID NOT EXITS?

WHY ARE SO MANY OF OUR FRIENDS AND FAMILIES BEING KILLED?

I AND I BRETHRENS AND SISTRENS KNEW THE REAL TRUTHS.

THEY REALLY THOUGHT THAT ALL TRENCH TOWN PEOPLE WERE POOR AND ILLITERATE.

REMEMBER WHEN BOB MARLEY SANG- ” CAN ANYTHING GOOD COME OUT OF TRENCH TOWN- THAT’S WHAT THEY SAY NOW”.

WHAT DO YOU THINK HE WAS TALKING ABOUT?

TODAY, AS I RAS CARDO WRITES- DO YOU EVER SEE ANY OTHER WRITER WRITING ABOUT THIS?

DO YOU SEE ANY OTHER ASKING THESE QUESTIONS IN THE REGGAE HISTORY?

I WILL SPEAK FOR ALL THOSE OF US WHO ARE NOW AFRAID TO SPEAK THE TRUTH, AND FOR ALL THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN SLAUGHTERED AND TAKEN AWAY FROM US IN THEIR FIGHT FOR THE TRUTH EXPOSURE.

FOR ME TO BE SILENT AND TO SEE THOSE WHO DECEIVE AND CREATE LIES ABOUT US AND OUR HISTORY, WOULD BE WORSE THAN PETER DENYING THAT HE KNEW WHO JESUS CHRIST WAS.

FOR ME TO BE SILENT, WOULD BE LIKE A MOTORIST WHO HAVE KILLED A PEDESTRIAN ON A ROAD WHICH NO ONE WAS A WITNESS, AND THEN KEEP SILENT WHEN THEY WATCH THE TELEVISION AND SEE THE GRIEVING FAMILIES FOR THEIR LOVED ONES.

PEOPLE WHO WRITE ABOUT US TEND TO FORGET THAT I WAS ALSO ONE FROM THOSE TRENCH TOWN DAYS AND MY FRIEND AND FAMILIES.

THIS IS MOST PERSONAL, AND HISTORIC TO ME.

WE LOVE JAMAICA, AND OUR JAMAICAN PEOPLE- BUT THE TRUTH MUST BE TOLD.

I COULD SIT WITH YOU FOR DAYS OR WEEKS TELLING YOU VERBATIM, WITH DETAILED NAMES, AND PLACES RELATED TO OUR REGGAE AND TRENCH TOWN HISTORY. NO ONE ELSE ON THIS OR ANY OTHER PLANET CAN DO THAT.

THIS IS A STATEMENT OF FACT AND TRUTH.

SO, FOR ALL THOSE WHO WORRY ABOUT THE ERASING OF OUR TRUE NAMES FROM THE HISTORY OF REGGAE THAT IS TRENCH TOWN, I WILL SAY THIS- DO NOT BE TROUBLED. THIS WILL NEVER HAPPEN.

THE REGGAE MARTYRS OF THE MUSIC AND TRENCH TOWN PEOPLE WILL NOT BE IN VAIN.

TRY TO FIND PEACE IN THE TRUTH THAT YOU KNOW AND LOVE. MY REGGAE LIVES FORIVER.
