STREGGAE TO REGGAE! REGGAE WOMEN STRONG! WAKE UP AND LIVE! YES- I HAVE CHANGED A WORD WHICH CHANGED THE NEGATIVE CULTURE OF WOMEN NOT ONLY IN JAMAICA, BUT ALL OVER THE WORLD. I BEAR FULL RESPONSIBILITY FOR THIS CHANGE WHICH HAS GIVEN THE EMPOWERMENT TO WOMEN TO LIVE PRODUCTIVE LIVES IN A MALE DOMINATED AND CASTIGATED SOCIETY. THE TRUTH IS THIS: ANY MAN WHO LOVES AND RESPECTS HIS OWN MOTHER WILL AGREE. ANY MAN WHO LOVES AND CARES FOR HIS DAUGHTER WILL AGREE. BABYLONIAN SYSTEMS HAVE MADE IT VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE FOR POOR WOMEN TO RISE. I DECIDED TO CHANGE ALL THAT IN 1962 TRENCH TOWN. I DARE ANY MAN OR WOMAN TO ARGUE WITH ME. REGGAE IS NOT ABOUT MUSIC. THERE IS SO MUCH MORE TO REGGAE THAT THE WORLD NEEDS TO KNOW, BUT I WILL REVEAL IN THE PASSAGE OF TIME. THOSE HYPOCRITES, CRITICS, AND PARASITES AS WE CALL THEM, CANNOT CHANGE THE HISTORY OF TRENCH TOWN REGGAE THAT I HAVE. THIS IS NOT THE HISTORY OF SLAVERY THAT SO MANY HAVE WRITTEN WITH THEIR OWN PREJUDICIAL INFLUENCES. THIS IS NOT THE TIME WHEN ONLY THOSE WHO HAD THE PRINTING PRESS COULD WRITE AND PUBLISH WHAT THEY WISHED. IT IS ALL TRUE AND KEPT FOR THE POSTERITY OF THE PEOPLE. I HAVE THE ARK OF THE TRENCH TOWN REGGAE COVENANT. IT BEGAN FOR THE WOMEN OF TRENCH TOWN. IF WOMEN TODAY SHOULD FEEL -IDENTITY AND DIVERSITY STRONG- THEN MY REGGAE SPEAKS FOR THEM. IF MEN OF POWER AND INFLUENCE SHOULD FALL BECAUSE OF THE TRUTH FROM WOMEN, THEN SO BE IT. MY EXPERIENCES HAS SEEN MANY INJUSTICES, BUT KEEP IN MIND THAT I SAID- THE TRUTH. THIS IS WHAT MY REGGAE REVEALS- THE TRUTH. LISTEN! IF MAN COMES FROM A WOMAN, THEN WHY ARE YOU NOT SHOWING RESPECT? MY REGGAE SPEAKS OF THE DISRESPECT AND STRUGGLES OF BLACK WOMEN AND ALL WOMEN FROM THE CRADLE OF CIVILIZATION- MOTHER AFRICA. SLAVERY HAS CAUSED UNTOLD SUFFERINGS, YET IT WAS LEGALLY JUSTIFIED. WHOSE IDEA WAS THAT? MY REGGAE SAY: ALL DOWNPRESSIVE REGIMES, AND CASTE SYSTEMS MUST BE DESTROYED. I WILL SAY THIS TO ALL MEN- HOW CAN YOU LOVE THE FRUIT AND HATE THE TREE FROM WHICH IT CAME? MY MESSAGE TO ALL WOMEN IN THIS TIME IS THIS: BEWARE OF EXPECTATIONS WHICH CAN LEAD TO DEPRESSION. STAND STRONG! REGGAE STRONG! IF YOU ARE CONFUSED BY THE NEWS, REMEMBER,MY REGGAE IS ALWAYS HERE FOR YOU TO USE. LET IT BE YOUR SHIELD AND BUCKLER . REMEMBER, THE CHILD INHERITS THE CONDITIONS OF THE MOTHER. I AM RAS CARDO , REGGAE CREATOR FROM TRENCH TOWN. (c) RAS CARDO SPEAKS REGGAE . ALL RIGHTS RESERVED GLOBALLY. REMEMBER- YOU TOO MUST COME WITH CLEAN HANDS. LET COURAGE OVER COME YOUR FEARS. RASPECT!
