(c) EXCERPT FROM- A REGGAE EDUCATION- ALL RIGHTS RESERVED GLOBALLY. RAS CARDO SPEAKS. SO MANY HAVE ASKED ME ABOUT THIS! I WILL SPEAK WITHOUT PREJUDICE AS ALWAYS. MY LIFE LONG TRENCH TOWN BRETHRENS- BOB MARLEY, PETER TOSH, JUNIOR BRAITHWAITE, AND OTHERS HAVE BEEN KILLED BY WICKED MEN. (1) THEY DID NOT COMMIT SUICIDE. (2) THEY DID NOT LIVE TO REACH OLD AGE.(3) THEY SPOKE THE TRUTH ABOUT THE SUFFERINGS OF THE PEOPLE.(4) THEY SANG AND PLAYED REGGAE MUSIC WHICH I NAMED, CREATED, AND WITH JUNIOR BRAITHWAITE PASSED THE TORCH TO BOB MARLEY TO HELP HIM PURSUE HIS PASSION FOR MUSIC.(5) THE COLONIAL SLAVE MASTERS HAVE NEVER LEFT JAMAICA. DON’T LET THIS SO-CALLED IN-DEPENDENCE FOOL YOU.(6) WE ALL KNEW THIS AND OTHER TRUTHS. I WILL ALSO TELL YOU THIS: (7) IT WAS MY REGGAE MUSIC GENRE WHICH MADE CHRIS BLACKWELL WELL KNOWN, AND FILTHY RICH. IT ALSO REDEFINED JAMAICAN WOMEN AND THE CULTURE IN THE EYES OF THE WORLD. IT GAVE JAMAICA A NEW LEASE ON LIFE AND RESPECT. NO ONE HAS EVER DONE THIS BEFORE. (8) REGGAE IS MY CREATION, NEVER HIS. THEY CANNOT CHANGE THE HISTORY IN MY KEEP. (9) BY HIS ADMISSION ALONE- HE TOOK A SLIM CHANCE ON THE POOR GHETTO YOUTHS, GIVING THEM CHICKEN FEED SEED MONEY TO MAKE AN ALBUM WHICH PAID OFF MAKING HIM ABUNDANTLY RICH WHILE OTHER PEOPLE SUFFER.(10) TAKE A LOOK AT TRENCH TOWN TODAY AS I WRITE. WHAT HAS THE REGGAE MILLIONS DONE FOR THEM? WHAT HAS IT DONE FOR CHRIS BLACKWELL? IT MUST BE NOTED THAT- MAYBE HE WAS UNDER NO OBLIGATION TO HELP THOSE WHO HELPED HIM. SHOW ME A SLAVE MASTER WITH A CONSCIENCE? (11) THE WORLD DOES NOT KNOW WHAT THEY ENDURED DURING THE TIME THEY WERE, WITH DIGNITY, FULFILLING THEIR OBLIGATIONS TO HIM. MY BRETHRENS KEPT THEIR WORD AND PROMISE MADE TO HIM. THEY NEVER FALTERED. (12) I KNOW THEIR SUFFERINGS. I KNOW WHAT WE ALL ENDURED. I HAVE NOT YET RELEASED CERTAIN TRUTHS. (13) KEEP THIS IN MIND- HAVE THE SLAVE MASTERS LEFT JAMAICA? (14) THE RECORDS WILL SHOW THAT HE WAS SURPRISED WHEN THEY DELIVERED ON THEIR PROMISE TO HIM.(15) THESE WERE POOR YOUTHS WHO HAD NOTHING, BUT TALENT AND HOPE.(16) IN CONCERT WITH THE JAMAICAN CRONIES, COHORTS,VAMPIRES IN THE MUSIC INDUSTRY THEY ALL EXECUTED A PLAN TO EXPLOIT AND RAPE THE SITUATION WITHOUT MERCY. (17) DID NOT BOB MARLEY AND PETER TOSH SANG ABOUT THEM IN THEIR MUSIC? IF BUNNY KNOW ALL THIS TO BE TRUE, THEN MORE POWER TO HIM. I STAND WITH THE TRUTH.THIS WAS THE PRICE THEY PAID FOR TRYING TO LIVE A LIFE OF HOPE TO HELPING OTHERS WHO KNEW WHAT POVERTY AND SUFFERINGS WAS ALL ABOUT. I RAS CARDO WILL RESERVE MY TRUTHS IN DETAILS AS THE CONFIDANT AND LIFE LONG BRETHRENS OF THESE MARTYRS. I WILL CHALLENGE ANYONE WHO DARES TO CHALLENGE I AND I ON THE RECORDS. SOMETIMES YOU HAVE TO FIGHT FIRE WITH FIRE. HARM NO ONE AND LET NO ONE HARM YOU. I FEAR ONLY JAH RASTAFARI! THEY HAVE SUCKED, AND KEEP SUCKING THE BLOOD OF THE SUFFERERS. BOB MARLEY, AND PETER TOSH SANG ABOUT THEM. THEY MADE THE WORLD BELIEVE THAT BOB AND PETER WERE ADVERSARIES. THIS WAS NEVER TRUE. I HAVE THE FACTS. I HAVE THE TRUTHS. REMEMBER THIS: THE COLONIAL SLAVE MASTERS AND MURDERERS HAVE NEVER LEFT JAMAICA. THEY STILL GIVE THE ORDERS FOR PEOPLE,- THOSE WHO SPEAK THE TRUTH,- TO BE KILLED. REGGAE AND THE MUSIC IS MY CREATION, AND WHAT WAS SWEET TO THEIR MOUTHS WILL BECOME BITTER IN THEIR BELLIES. JAH WILL NOT LET THEM ESCAPE HIS JUDGEMENT. I AM RAS CARDO FROM TRENCH TOWN. IN LIFE, AS IN DEATH, I WILL NEVER FORGET MY BRETHRENS.
