How Did Reggae Festivals turn Into All White Affairs?

Is this the new face of

They had white sponsors, white organizers, white groups, and white folks at the gate collecting the money. How did this happen? White Supremacists poured white women on the Rasta men and now Rastas are WHITE! Am I lying? Of course not. And what’s funny is that these white Rastas are the well to do children whose parents were locking up, beating and marginalizing black folks for decades. Confused? Let me help you.


This weekend, I went to a Reggae Festival in Hampton Roads Virginia. I saw white men, most with dreaded up hair, playing bongos, drums and on stage playing and singing Reggae. It was a shameful farce. The so called den mother, was a white woman with dreaded up hair. Damn, I thought the meaning of Rasta was black.


But all the vendors were black or Rasta. The Rasta’s who did come out weren’t spending any money with their own. Regular black folks came out in support and to have fun; they were spending their money. And of course white folks (flower children throwbacks) who be “all dreaded up,” spent money. Although it was obvious the white girls were there to pick up black guys. All the economics were controlled by white folks.
Did the Rastafarians sell out? Is this just happening in America? What are the Rasta’s doing about it? It now seems REGGAE MUSICAND CULTURE IS BEING CONTROLLED BY WHITE FOLKS; at least in America. I wonder what’s happening in the Islands.

People of color have to learn to say “NO.” By the time you learn to keep your culture, rituals and traditions to yourself, they won’t be yours anymore. In 100 years all Rastafarians will be WHITE; except for legend Bob Marley and then historians will say, “well, you know his father was white.”


Once the white woman gets a hold of the Rasta man……he’s done!
If you Rasta’s (gots) to have a white woman, go ahead, but have the decency to tell her to stay the F**k in her lane and out of your business; keep her regular EUROPEAN hairstyle, dress and lifestyle-she don’t need dreads. When you were chasing her down the street, she had her regular BECKY WHITE GIRL HAIR, THEN YOU WANT TO TURN HER RASTA. White supremacists are going to take your islands and put you all on reservations.

  1. goes back as far as corcusites claiming they are the iseaelite, it maybe so, but the true spelling = Isrealite is all Darkness, Shalom


  2. Well im White, but this is spot on. Whites should preserve their culture and stop invading other cultures as well as blacks.


  3. Very sad…..I mean. I’ve got no Rastas, I m white n I just love Reggae Music. The music connects ppl. Does it really offend you if u c a white woman/man with Rastas? I mean I don’t feel offended when a black woman wears indian hair…. can’t u just try 2 leave peacefully 2gether n finally get over a stupid thing like skincolour? Is that d only thing that defines u? That gives u ur character? Very sad 2 hear that in d 21st century. I believe that we got all only 1 life. So lets live it here n now. What passed passed. Injustice happened n is still happening. Let’s fight it 2gether united. ✌


  4. You are clearly expressing your opinion, but you are stuck holding onto judgements that remain unto JAh. So called RACE is a construct of the mind. You cannot say that billions of people that appear to look the same on the surface, must all be the same in mindset and ways, or all ‘evil’ as you claim. Tafari Makonnen states that it is imperative that all peoples stand united together for the betterment of Imanity, the nations must help one another. All must seek knowledge before vengeance.
