“Until the philosophy which holds one race superior and another inferior, is finally and permanently
discredited and abandoned, there will be wars everywhere” …His Imperial Majesty Haile Selassie I.
As the King of Kings said a long time ago, wars that are occasioned by man’s inhumanity to man
have become the bane of our world. And rumours of avoidable unrests, skirmishes, wars and
deaths are taking their destructive tolls on mankind because we have refused to tow the lines of
oneness in truth and spirit in accordance to the divine injunctions of Earth’s Rightful Ruler.
The latest widespread protests, burning and looting going on in the United States of America over
the death of George Floyd, in the hands of a racist Caucasian police officer is another pointer in the
succession of other dastardly acts of such abominable nature that man has become his own worst
and most destructive enemy, blindly heading to damnation out of sheer hatred for the next man.
And until we achieve the total eradication of this self inflicted malady with its devastatingly
crippling effects on our world, we will paraphrase the King again to say that “the dreams of lasting
peace, world citizenship and rule of international morality will remain but a fleeting illusion to be
pursued, but never attained!”
Against this background therefore, and drawing strength and fortitude from King Selassie I, the
Rastafari Continental Council, RCC calls on all Africans both at home and in the diaspora, including
heads of governments in the continent and beyond, as well as all well-meaning individuals
irrespective of colour, race or creed to stand in solidarity with our brothers and sisters in the US to
say with a unified loud voice that Enough is Enough!
