Can anyone be a Rasta?

AS RASTAFARIANISM has no official dogma and no formal 'church', there is no conversion process.
The nearest thing to a church that Rastas have is the Twelve Tribes of Israel Church,
which is multi-racial and will accept anyone, without a ceremony,
who recognises Haile Selassie I to be one of a long line of prophets.
“The wearing of hair in dreadlocks by Rastafarians is believed to be spiritual”

If I had dreadlocks, I would probably look like a plucked chicken with a few feathers still left sticking out - but I have no problem with others … black or white having dreads, they do look good.

As for the red or yellow though it is a bit different - because, when you are a dry earwax type (East Asians and Native Americans) you hardly sweat from your armpits – so, it is the head that turns into a ‘fountain’.
And fancy having sweaty-wet dreads hanging down your face in the heat … would they ever even dry up in the tropics and its humidity or just go mouldy?
But maybe dreads are possible?

Dreadlocks on whites as "cultural appropriation"? (an old video):

I liked the ending of your first link.

I’m sure we’ll all be sniffing our Q-tips now when no one is looking. Don’t act like you won’t.
Shoot, I might just smell others Qtips. LOL

Yeah your second vid sounds like the appropriations I am aware of.
They usually end up in combative words. Like political grumblings.


I could go down appropriation trails, and have in life.
They always seem far from unity and Love.
I have a choice, The Red Road or the Black Road.
I chose the Red Road and flirt in the Black Road occasionally, but the
Black road stings, quite a bit.

Rasta dreads, not on this head. I am afraid I might
get stinky ear wax in them. LOL
That's why I said attitudes. The Irie feeling and the INI.

My Qtips have no odour whatsoever, nor have I ever needed a deodorant.

Perfect hairdo for the dry earwax people in the summertime.
Turn half of your hair into wings on both sides of your head.
They might catch the breeze ‘n’ keep your face cool and your hair dry:

How does the war bonnet do in the heat?

As a woman, forget about the voluptuous body curves of Africans or Mediterraneans (Near Eastern genes), but then again as a consolation prize, one must be happy for never needing to shave ones legs or arms or that moustache.

So, if it is not one thing - it will be the other.

I just like it that one cannot appropriate genetic traits.

Check him out ….

At 3:44 he goes into “our” ho-ho-ho singing mode (joik) for the ‘Universal Echo’– after which he hits the high register like the Northern Cree drummers:

This, I do not know.
Although, my Father keeps our family bonnet
but it is in poor shape and I have only seen it once.

I have to say, you know a whole lot on genes and traits and nutrition
for the different gene pool types. These things have never really become a
priority for myself to look into. I always understood I have mut/mixed genes and
come from unwanted and illegitimate people, on most of my family lines.
I belong in no specific gene pool group.(Or at least most is uncertain)
But yet, I belong anywhere I walk until I can't walk. But I don't stay
where I am not welcome unless there is a higher reason.
I can without doubt say I belong to the 2 legged nation and
my genes go back to the first peoples.
I live simply, with deodorant or without. LOL

I rest in my Center

Beautiful voice.
Was that a tear in Simons eye? Oh my.

Maybe you should think about looking into it. It is quite amazing what you learn about your ancestry.
Maybe there is a reason (you thought) ‘you chose’ the Amerind way?

I love this professor’s work/books:
https://www.google.com/search?q=juha...-8--Uu6QaIrChM

Don’t know how much research he had done into Siberian/Saami/Karelian Shamanism & how many books he had written – until he found out he himself belongs to a famous-famous Saami Shaman family line/tree by blood.

Once you have been cut off from your ancestral lands, culture, people & in fear of racial discrimination etc. you have been denied the knowledge of who you are – and yet – you (((remember))) stuff … it gives you have this burning desire to find your way back.

I chose to be a biker with my hair in the wind on my iron pony.
My spiritual path chose me or just showed up in front of me to walk.

I have to keep things short since my PC keeps dying.
