I TOLD THEM YEARS AGO WHAT REGGAE MEANS AND WHO/ WHERE IT CAME FROM! WHY ARE YOU AFRAID TO PUBLISH THE TRUTH AS TO MY REGGAE CREATION? WHY HAVE ALL YOU SO-CALLED SCHOLASTIC INTELLECTUALS FAILED TO PUBLISH THE TRUTH? IT HAS BEEN 56 YEARS AND COUNTING THAT YOU CONTINUE TO LIE TO THE PEOPLE.I- RAS CARDO NOW DECLARE- TO ALL TO WHOM THESE PRESENTS SHALL COME:- TIME FOR YOU ALL TO COME CLEAN- TELL THE PEOPLE THE TRUTH! I CREATED REGGAE AND THE MUSIC WHICH CARRIES ITS MESSAGES OF THE PEOPLE TO THE WORLD. WHO WOULD WISH TO CHALLENGE ME ON THAT TRUTH? THE INCONTROVERTIBLE EVIDENCE CAN BE SEEN BY EVERYONE OVER THE YEARS AS I HAVE STATED. REGGAE IS MY CREATION FROM TRENCH TOWN FOR JAH PEOPLE GLOBALLY. TELL THE PEOPLE THE TRUTH!!

EXCERPT (C) A REGGAE EDUCATION BY RAS CARDO REGGAE CREATOR, ORIGINAL WAILING WAILER FROM TRENCH TOWN JAMAICA.

WRITTEN WITHOUT PREJUDICE AND WITH TRUTH. NO APOLOGIES!

FOR YEARS THE OXFORD ENGLISH DICTIONARY HAS WRITTEN IN ITS PAGES THAT THE WORD- REGGAE- ORIGINS IN THE LATE 1960’S-“PERHAPS RELATED TO JAMAICAN ENGLISH” “REGE-REGE QUARREL, ROW”.

MANY HAVE WRITTEN THAT ITS ORIGINS IS UNKNOWN!

THIS IS ABSOLUTE NONSENSE! WHERE IN HELL DID THIS COME FROM?

THE DICTIONARY WHICH WAS FIRST PUBLISHED IN 1884 BY- OXFORD UNIVERSITY PRESS IN THE UNITED KINGDOM BOASTS ABOUT ITS 90% LIKEABLE PUBLIC RATING. IT ALSO STATES THAT THE WORD- REGGAE IS A NOUN, AND THAT IT BECAME WIDELY KNOWN BY THE WORKS OF BOB MARLEY AND HIS RASTAFARIAN BELIEFS.

NOW LISTEN UP TO THE TRUTH WHICH THEY HAVE REFUSED TO TELL THE WORLD ABOUT REGGAE, AND WHICH THEY HAVE REFUSED SO TO DO FOR SO MANY YEARS-56 YEARS AND COUNTING:

I DON’T KNOW WHO GAVE THESE PEOPLE THE ABSOLUTE RIGHT TO SAY THAT THEY KNOW AND CAN SPEAK ON MY REGGAE CREATION WHEN THE TRUTH WAS ALREADY GIVEN TO THEM AND IN PLACES WHERE THEY COULD EASILY FIND IT.

YOU WOULD THINK THAT BY COMMONSENSE ALONE THEY WOULD HAVE CHECKED COPYRIGHTED OFFICES TO SEE IF ANYONE HAD IT SO COPYRIGHTED, BUT THEY OBVIOUSLY DID NOT/OR DID NOT GIVE A DAMN TO SHARE THAT TRUTH WITH THE WORLD.

ALL THESE TRUTHS I HERE DELIVER TO ALL PEOPLE- WITHOUT PREJUDICE!

WELL, I RAS CARDO WHO HOLDS THE COPYRIGHTS TO REGGAE’S CREATION SAY TO YOU ALL-            TIME IS UP!!!   NO MORE LIES TO THE PEOPLE!   NO MORE EXCUSES!!

HOW MUCH LONGER DO YOU WANT TO LIE TO THE WORLD OF PEOPLE SEEKING THE TRUTH AS TO MY TRENCH TOWN REGGAE CREATION?

THIS IS NOT THE TIME WHEN THOSE WHO CLAIM TO BE HISTORIANS OF BLACK PEOPLES STRUGGLES COULD WRITE WHATEVER THEY FEEL SUITS THEM AND THEIR CRONIES THE WAY THEY DID  WITH SLAVERY.

I, RAS CARDO REGGAE COME TO CHANGE ALL THAT WITH THE REGGAE TRUTH.

I TOLD YOU:- R.E.G.G.A.E = REDEFINING/REAFFIRMING GHETTO GENIUS ANYWHERE/EVERYWHERE OR ANYTIME/EVERYTIME!

ONE JAMAICAN POLITICIAN HAD TOLD YOU THIS ABOUT MY REGGAE:-“IT IS A TREMENDOUS FORCE FOR CHANGE”. “IT IS THE FIRST PEOPLE’S LANGUAGE”.

WHAT IS IT THAT YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND? WHAT IS IT YOU SEEK? WHAT ARE YOU TRYING TO FIND? DID NOT MY BRETHREN AND PROPHET- PETER TOSH ASKED YOU THE SAME QUESTIONS?

DID NOT MY BRETHREN AND STUDENT- BOB MARLEY TOLD YOU- “YOU HAVE BEEN WRONG FOR SO LONG- STIFFED NECKED FOOLS”

THOSE IN THE ENCYCLOPEDIA BRITANNICA, GUINNESS BOOK OF RECORDS, ENGLISH BOOKS OF ETYMOLOGY AND MUSICOLOGY, THEIR MEDIA NETWORKS OF PRINTS AND OTHER BBC RECORDS HAVE ALL FAILED TO TELL THE PEOPLE THE TRUTH AS TO MY REGGAE CREATION WITH THE TRENCH TOWN PEOPLE IN 1962 JAMAICA. THEY ALL THINK ITS ABOUT MUSIC. STIFFED NECKED FOOLS!

THEY ALL TALK ABOUT- TOOTS AND THE MAYTALS PUTTING THE WORD IN A SONG CALLED-“DO THE REGAY” IN 1968. THIS WAS 6 YEARS AFTER HE HEARD IT FROM THE TRENCH TOWN PEOPLE, AND HE GOT THE SPELLING OF IT TOTALLY WRONG- BECAUSE HE HAD STOLEN THE WORD AND RAN WITH IT, NOT KNOWING WHO CREATED OR WHAT IT MEANT. TO THIS DAY HE HAS DECIDED TO LIVE A LIE ON THAT WHICH HE STOLE FROM THE TRENCH TOWN PEOPLE.

REGGAE AND ITS CREATION IS SUCH A COMPLEX DETAILED HISTORY THAT HE WOULD NOT KNOW IT, IF HE WAS GIVEN IT TO EAT ON A BULLA WITH PEAR. THE SAME APPLIES TO JIMMY CLIFF WHO NEVER SANG REGGAE BEFORE HEARING IT FROM THE RASTA BRETHRENS AND I AND I RAS CARDO.

THEY HAVE ALL KEPT SILENT IN THE FALSE ACCOLADES BESTOWED ON THEM AS PUPPETS OF THE SYSTEM IN BABYLON. THEY FORGET THE PEOPLE WHO HELPED THEM TO LAUNCH THEIR CAREERS TO SING. THOSE SAME PEOPLE  WHO CONFIDED IN ME MOST TRUSTINGLY.

BABYLON SYSTEMS HAVE A WAY OF CLOUDING AND DISCREDITING THE WORKS OF THOSE WHOM IT THINKS DOES NOT FIT THE  ELITE MOULD OF OPULENCE. I AM HERE TO TELL BABYLON THAT IS BULL CRAP!!

I HAVE GIVEN THEM AND OTHERS AMPLE TIME TO CORRECT THEIR LIES, FALSEHOODS, AND PREVARICATIONS AS TO MY REGGAE CREATION.

I, RAS CARDO WHO CREATED THIS GENRE OF MUSIC CHALLENGE YOU TO -TELL THE PEOPLE OF THE WORLD THE TRUTH- AS TO MY REGGAE CREATION.

WHEN MY PEOPLE ARE HURTING- WHO FEELS THE PAIN?

YOUR DICTIONARY CAUSES GRAVE CONCERNS OVER MATERIAL OMISSIONS OF FACTS AND DETAILS.

I, RAS CARDO REGGAE CREATOR FROM TRENCH TOWN JAMAICA SPEAK THIS TRUTH ABOUT MY REGGAE CREATION:

(1) IN JANUARY OF 1995 I INFORMED-THE BRITISH LIBRARY- HUMANITIES AND SOCIAL SCIENCES- DEPARTMENTS OF MY REGGAE CREATION AND WHAT IT MEANS. IN A LETTER RECEIVED FROM ONE- MR JIM ARMITAGE- ON BEHALF OF THE BRITISH LIBRARY, ACQUISITIONS PROCESSING AND CATALOGUING DEPARTMENTS HE SAID THANKS. THIS NOTIFICATION WAS DONE BY SENDING THEM A COPY OF MY BOOK PUBLISHED IN 1993- (C) A REGGAE EDUCATION- REGGAE INVENTOR: SCOTT’S OFFICIAL HISTORY OF THE ORIGINAL WAILERS, REGGAE AND THE TRENCH TOWN EXPERIENCE- SCOTT, RICARDO. HAD THEY CONSULTED THIS BOOK IN THEIR LIBRARY THEY WOULD HAVE SEEN ON PAGE 57- HOW REGGAE CAME ABOUT.

(2) THIS INFORMATION HAS BEEN COPYRIGHTED IN THE US- COPYRIGHT OFFICES IN WASHINGTON DC AND OTHER INTERNATIONAL PLACES OF COPYRIGHT REGISTRATIONS.

(3)THEY HAVE STATED_“PERHAPS RELATED TO JAMAICAN ENGLISH”. WHAT DOES THIS MEAN? ARE THEY AFRAID TO USE THE WORD- “PATOIS” AS THEY ALWAYS SAY THAT IT IS A FORM OF THEIR-“BROKEN ENGLISH”?

LISTEN!! WHENEVER SOMEONE USES THE WORD-“PERHAPS” OR “PERCHANCE”- IT CLEARLY MEAN THAT THEY DO NOT KNOW THE TRUTH OR THE SOURCE.  THIS IS THE WAY THAT THE BRITISH SAY- “ITS POSSIBLY SO”. THIS IS ONE WAY HOW THEY PLAY WITH WORDS! WHY IS IT THAT FOR SO LONG, AND THE FACT THAT THEY WERE GIVEN THE TRUTH, MALIGNANTLY FAILED TO TELL THE PEOPLE? I COULD TELL YOU WHY, BUT I WILL SAVE THIS TRUTH FOR LATER.

(4) I CREATED REGGAE IN 1962. IS 1962 THE EARLY PART, OR LATE PART OF THE 60’S?

(5) FOR CENTURIES THE BRITISH HAS LED THE WORLD TO BELIEVE THAT WHATEVER THEY SPEAK OR DO IS TO BECOME THE STANDARDS BY WHICH ALL OTHER CULTURES AND PEOPLES MUST BE JUDGED. FOR AGES, THEIR PIRATES, PRIVATEERS, BUCCANEERS AND PLUNDERERS HAVE RAVISHED OTHER LANDS AND PEOPLES, INCLUDING JAMAICA. THEY CALL THIS COLONIZATION.

UNFORTUNATELY TODAY YOU STILL HAVE SOME JAMAICANS WHO DEEPLY BELIEVE IN THIS MENTAL ENSLAVEMENT, AND THEY WILL KILL THEIR OWN PEOPLE WHO DO NOT SHARE THIS IDEOLOGY. THE RASTAMAN SUFFERS MUCH BECAUSE OF IT.

I, RAS CARDO AM HERE TO TELL THEM THAT THEY HAVE BEEN WRONG FOR SO LONG, AND HAVE LIED TO THE WORLD IN THE FALSELY DISSEMINATION OF MY REGGAE TRUTHS AND ITS CREATION.

THEY HAVE RELUCTANTLY FAILED TO SEEK THE TRUTHS IN THE VERIFIABLE ACQUISITIONAL SOURCES AS TO – MY REGGAE ORIGINS AND CREATION. THIS INFORMATION WAS GIVEN TO THEM AND WAS READILY ACCESSIBLE TO THEM AND THEY HAVE MISERABLY FAILED TO TELL THIS TRUTH TO THE WORLD. IT IS TANTAMOUNT TO A MOST EGREGIOUS ACT AND A CATASTROPHIC FAILURE OF THE GREATEST MAGNITUDE. THEY HAVE LIED TO THE PEOPLE.

(6) MY TRENCH TOWN CREATED REGGAE CAME TO ENGLAND BY WAY OF THOSE JAMAICANS WHO WERE -“SEEKING A BETTER LIFE”- FROM THE POVERTY AND CRIMES KNOWN TO JAMAICA. IT WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE BRITISH -DANCE HALL CULTURE- STOLEN BY MANY CAUCASIANS, AND JOURNALISTS IN ENGLAND TO THIS VERY DAY. I HAVE TOLD THE WORLD ABOUT THIS HISTORY OVER THE YEARS.

IT IS PAST TIME THAT THOSE RESPONSIBLE FOR WHAT ENTERS THE PUBLIC DOMAIN IN THEIR PUBLICATIONS TELL THE PEOPLE THE TRUTHS. REGGAE AND RASTAFARI SINGS- REGGAE FOR A REASON! REGGAE IS MINE WHETHER YOU ARE BLACK OR IF YOU HAVE A WHITE MIND. I AM RAS CARDO REGGAE CREATOR/ORIGINAL WAILING WAILER FROM TRENCH TOWN JAMAICA. (C) A REGGAE EDUCATION ALL RIGHTS RESERVED GLOBALLY.
