- I would love to see the day come when men would not be so stupid to wage war against each other. for no one wins a war, and for all those who think otherwise, know this:- those who give the ok to start wars are never the ones who are dying in it. peter tosh, bob marley, and I reasoned about this before they were killed by evil men. haile selassie spoke about it too. peter's last album was titled:- no nuclear war. reggae and rastafari is always for peace. I, ras cardo says: lets erase the hate.
Any country that cannot provide for the proper healthcare of its citizens should never consider itself worthy of them dying for it in battle. For in a war- no one wins! both sides end up with casualties in body bags with mass graves and maybe- no memorials! I am ras cardo who created reggae. You can quote me on that-accurately. Its all true.
I am ras cardo reggae, the reggae creator from trench town. I refused to let the people of the world believe that-nothing good comes out of trench town. -because, now the world knows that babylon told them a lie. they lied against us! they lied because they wanted to steal our trench town reggae heritage and legacy for poor people. I will never make this happen! so help I jah!
I know that someday my works will be praised by the critics, revered by the skeptics, respected by the cynics, continue to be researched by the academics, and loved by all those who know truth throughout the world. it will defy description and pose a dire challenge to historical analysis. the truths I deliver stands on its own. I created reggae and told the world about- the technotyrannical society.
I shared many reasonings and truths with bob marley, peter tosh, joe higgs, roy wilson, cherry, delroy, junior braithwaite, alton ellis, and other legends and peoples of trench town, to which I am duty bound not to release to the public, but which I will use, if and when it becomes necessary to show the liars, pirates, privateers, profiteers of reggae, the truth which I know will ultimately silence them. Those who still try to ignore and to erase our names from the reggae book of truths will face the consequences. I speak without prejudice.
never let a politician grant you a favor or else they will want to own you forever. Stand firm, it will always be -we and dem, but we know this:- someone will have to pay for the innocent blood shed everyday.
SOMETIMES BEING TOO CLOSE TO THE GOALS WE SEEK IN LIFE CAUSES US TO HAVE LESS A DESIRE TO ENJOY THE TRUE IMPORTANCE AND SIGNIFICANCE OF LIFE ITSELF. eg. MOST PEOPLE LIVING CLOSE TO THE NIAGARA FALLS SEEM TO VISIT IT LESS, BUT WILL QUICKLY CARRY SOME VISITOR TO SEE IT.
I was the first to create a youth group and club to focus on the education of youths in trench town and surrounding areas. this was in 1963 while I was still a student at-st. georges college- high school. trench town will always be my water hole from which I shall drink of africa to quench my thirstthis is also one of my many original quotes.
'what eyes don't see, heart don't leap. this is one of my early trench town quotes in my book- reggae lyrics, slangs, and interpretations. it applies today in the evidences of films and video taken and shown about the killings of our people by police and otherwise. I only wished that we had started this video camera evidence long ago to combat the -technotyrannical society- I told the world to look out for. I urge all people to-film, film, film, like there is no tomorrow, and to safely secure your evidence.a sure way to put an end to racism in america over time.
-gang-jahgricultural explosion= is a term I coined and created to show what will happen to the growth, legalization,and distribution of ganja-(marijuana) in jamaica. this is yet another way for babylon's elite domination, and an instrument of control by those who hold political offices and influence upon those who are poor. the jamaican rastaman has lost control over his spiritual herb, and the plan is to reduce him to nothingness. read what details are in this essay shown on answers.com wordpress.
-I have a most salient message to all those in -the jamaican music industry, and cultural affairs. there are people in their midst as infiltrates whom they are trusting with their ideas on reggae. most of these people are from foreign lands who seek with one dire intent. those in the u.w.I and other places have become -nesting grounds for these moles.beware, the deceit!!! I say this- without prejudice. I will not disclose my sources and methods.
Cardonation- this is an ascribed coined word used to ras cardo reggae from trench town pertaining to his works for the people. It is the healing which comes from the giving and receiving of reggae's blessings, virtues, and rewards. In roots trench town close circles, it is the healing of the nation which comes from ras cardo reggae education. This is known as-cardonation. You must educate in order to liberate using ras cardos reggae. It also refers to the building of a nation by reggae's healing and liberation of the people with music. One must note:-it is not yet in common usage, but it will. It is not about buying, selling or driving cars. Do not get it confused like the way some people think that-radiology- means fixing radios. Cardonation is strictly defined!!
crime has become the preoccupation of genuises in this technotyrannical twittering society. There are those who will show -a love/hate relationship with the rest of the populus.
Evil men practice the implantation of hateful ideologies within the minds of the weak. They know it is hard to erase this mental affliction. They also know that the physicality will go away, but mental ideological damage is forever.
I , ras cardo- reggae creator, will say this reggae truth:- leghorn coghile from trench town wrote the lyrics for the song-them belly full. this was the same song which bob marley made famous. I was there with them in trench town when all this was done. I know the details surrounding the writings of these lyrics. I was there!
I am really the only living one today from those early trench town days who can tell the world the exact meanings of every word, phrases, in the lyrics of the original songs by bob marley, peter tosh. you would have to know what I know, and have spent the times in reasonings with the trench town crew to be able to say in truth what I have just said. not even their families can counter that.
I know for a fact that there are hospitals and some restaurants, and other food establishments in america that- throw away good food- instead of giving it to people in need, such as the homeless, sick and infirm, and those in poor areas. When I ask about this I am told that- the governmental regulations forbid them to give it away to those in need because of impending legal problems which may arise. What a damn shame! I find myself helping to feed the -street people- on my own accord and resources. They also have told me their stories.
I ras cardo say this truth:- darkness may be the absence of light, but blackness is not necessarily the absence of white. So, my reggae say, why fuss and fight racially as to who is wrong or who is right? wake up and live!!
I speak trench town- past, present, and those to come. babylon system said-can anything good come out of trench town? we proved them wrong, very wrong!! I wonder what they are saying now.
I will challenge anyone today and say this:- if bob marley and peter tosh were alive today, those who try to sell them, their images, and works would never get away with it! I must also add- if their sons and daughters allows this to happen to their fathers, being raped in their graves, then the consequences are theirs to bear. I knew their fathers before they were born. I know my brethrens spirits lives! jah lives! rastafari is, and lives! I am ras cardo from trench town.
I will say this without a doubt:- I have the testimonials of joe higgs and roy wilson- speaking about my works creating reggae and naming the original wailing wailers group name, among other things I was the architect of in trench town. those who seek to challenge me will always lose. put your money on the table which I will give to the poor people after your defeat.
I wrote the book- to generations yet unborn- in trench town during my high school years as a prophecy of my reggae predictions. as a visionary, I saw what the jamaica today would become, if, and only if the status quo would help and respect the poor and disadvantaged people. jamaica and the world today does not surprise me. my reggae does not care if you are black or white just as long as you can make what is wrong- right! I am ras cardo, the creator.
I, ras cardo say this:- one of the most egregious lies told about the trench town people is:- nothing good comes out of trench town. bob marley and I was determined to prove them wrong. did you not hear him sing this in a song- trench town rock?
information is a commodity in this age of technotyranny. Beware the commoditization of information in this technotyrannical revolution.
Let this be my perpetual memorial day quote for the usa.-any country that cannot provide for the proper healthcare of its citizens should never consider itself worthy of them dying for it in battle. For in a war, no one wins! both sides end up with casualties in body bags and mass graves, and maybe no memorials I am ras cardo who created reggae. You can quote me on that, but do it exactly as written.
let this go down in prophecy! america is fast losing it's- land of opportunity- status. The youths have begun to figure it out. Whatever future results from all their knowledge and experiences of this, america hast itself to blame. I will further say this- why have all the weapons of war when there is no one to fire them, and those who can do so, are on the side of your enemies? the mindset of the youths have changed.Children seek refuge and die at your ports of entry. Schools being turned into killing zones of the children. Your prisons are just revolving doors for criminality. Drugs are everywhere. Where there is no vision, the people perish, and so will the nation. If the weather is any indication of god's visitation, then take heed much more to come. I am ras cardo reggae
LIFE AND LONGEVITY MUST ACT IN SYNERGY. HERE'S, ONE EXAMPLE:-eg. SODIUM AND CHLORINE FORMS THE BASIS OF -TABLE SALT- SO OFTEN EATEN SAFELY ON OUR FOOD--BUT TAKEN SEPARATELY, ARE DEADLY POISONS WHICH WILL IMMEDIATELY KILL US. SYNERGY IN THEIR COMBINED EFFECTS GUARANTEES THEIR SAFETY FOR LIFE. THIS REASONING IS ANALOGOUS TO HOW-HOMEOSTASIS AND EQUILIBRIUM GIVES A CLUE TO THE BODY'S FUNCTIONAL NORMALITY.
nepotism and despotism will lasts only for a short while. For like a dead fish in the heat of the mid-day sun it is bound to rot and spoil
ras cardo said:- plutocracy- in the age of technotyranny was what the founding fathers missed politically to promulgate the presidency! big mistake!- but they could not have seen this day and age of what I have called- technotyrannical society. for in the written constitution there would be its inclusion, and now its interpretation would be no cause for confusion.
Ras cardo speaks-tragedy and triumph usually go hand in hand like the flip sides of the same coin, and the truth that you dare not have one without the other- ras cardo reasonings.
ras cardo speaks: one of the greatest blunders and mistakes jamaica has made to-reggae- is the ostracizing and exclusion of the trench town people from the rest of the society. they never knew us, because they never wanted to get to know us. so, now, when I hear them talking about reggae music as their- cultural export - one wonders, who are they fooling? the damage is already done.
reggae and the jamaican economy. I/we from trench town knew this all along that's why we put the messages in a song. It took the financial sector of jamaica so many years to let the world know about- the reggae dollars fate. Now the boj announced the truth, let us wait and see how this benefits the youths. I am ras cardo from trench town who created reggae there in 1962.
Reggae truth- the real -culture yard- in trench town was at the back of my tenement yard. What the media and jamaica has called-culture yard-was just another place where bob marley and some of us used to visit. I will not disclose any further details of this location because I know that there are people who would love to have this detailed information in their arsenal. It had a certain name. So far, what jamaica has advertised as bob marley's place of carousing was not the real trench town culture yard. The jamaican media has been wrong in many things reggae and of trench town, and they refused to learn the truth from those who know it, and lived it. I am ras cardo from trench town. All rights reserved globally.
responsibility! americans love to say-it is, what it is. I, ras cardo say:- responsibility is foresight, not hindsight. It is looking far beyond the- here and now of the consequences which will most surely flow from our actions or in-actions. We must show young people how to-look for it, embrace it, and use it by being it. This is what we should mean when we say-it is, what it is. It is something , much better when its shared.
Some may call us- old fire sticks,- but we burn hotter than the hottest flames. They may call us-old brooms- but we know all the corners. We may be called cold, but we are the cryoscopic reggae sword of the spirit of truth. I am ras cardo who created reggae.
The system set it has you wired, but it never gets tired. It keeps you in uncertainty while it tracks you with its -sin- number and social security. The system set. See ras cardo's youtube video- the system set.
There are serious risks to living in paradise. Such are the ways in jamaica. It would be difficult for the media and its conspirators to come forth now and tell the truth about my trench town reggae creation, after having perpetrated lies on our history for so long. However, an attempt was made by the late- michael manley as prime minister to do so.
There is a movement in babylon to:- gangjagriculturalize- ras spiritual herb. I will tell you more about this term I coined to show what they will do to rasta and the herb in years to come. I am ras cardo who created reggae. I am-R.H.A.T.I.D- reggae highest authority truthfully informing the diaspora. This is prophecy. I have also told you about-R.A.S.P.E.C.T1.
those who lie about trench town reggae will always try to evade me and- the searching for truth questions- which I will ask them. the questions I ask, will show them up to be liars. so far, none has dared to accept my challenges after all these years. they fear my -(c) reggae polygraphy.
Try this! throw one stone in the air and think. This stone could only consider itself to be free, if it could forget the hand that hath thrown it. I will share a secret of bob marley and I reasonings with you. Listen, he sang, no chains around my feet, yet I'm not free!. Where, and from whom do you think he got that?
when I look at you here is what I see:- an open ended tube from mouth to anus. this is called the -human race- who, without love, is a total disgrace, each one trying to find his place in this eternal rat race.I am ras cardo!
ziggy marley got the name- ziggy- from the way I used to kick the soccer ball and make it spin in mid air in a curviliner fashion. I was the one who showed his father- bob marley- how this was done. I can show anyone how this is done to prove my point. bob was fascinated by a lot of things I taught him. he was very curious.
- it is a great joy to be able to touch people, to touch their lives, their minds, their conditions, to help them see that they are not alone, that indeed someone(you) cared about them. That is the true essence of life. That is love in its purest sense. It is the highest standard to live up to, and not many want that burden, for indeed the road is never easy. That is how I live my life helping and loving others. I am ras cardo from trench town.
so, I ask america- what color of skin people have your-john locke- life, liberty, and property in the pursuit of happiness philosophy? violence has always been what defines you. whites ran from religious oppression and persecution in europe to america. blacks came to america as forced slave labor to whites on plantations. I will say to america- violence will not save you. racism and hate will not save you. eugenics will not save you. jah will move the earth from under your feet. you still have some time to save yourself. no one wins a war. wise up!!!
M.O.M.S.= mothers of murdered sons. When I wrote this in my book-(c)-2000- profiles in courage of ghetto mothers- isbn # 1584700416- it was done with that passion within me for my people, and the love I have and seen from those who are poor. I have seen many lives gone astray because of poverty and the ways it forces some of us to live- homeless-in prisons- drug dependent- losing one's sense of purpose- losing one's life. My life's work so far, is spent in helping others not to lose their way. This is why I also created my reggae to heal the nations.
rain a fall, breeze a blow. bend down low let me tell you what I know!- trench town days with ras cardo and the brethren and sistrens including- bob marley, peter tosh, cherry junior, and others.
africa's wailing children-sometimes I wished it was possible to extend my arms around all of africa's children and to let them feel the love and hope for a brighter day-from uncertainty-lack of food and water-good health and housing-from tribal wars- and to enjoy my reggae music in love and peace. I will continue to pray.
'some people look, but they don't see, for to see means to have feelings,like the delicate touch, as when your tongue can find a tiny fish bone hidden within the morsel of food in your mouth. No eyes required remember this!
** the reggae music industry used to say that reggae was created in 1968 with the song-do the regay-by the maytals. the industry did not know that this was wrong, so I corrected them and told them it was in 1962-created by me in trench town. since then, they began to use my 1962 date-yet they gave me no credit for telling them the truth. so, I decided to withold my crucial history. they began to follow me around -online and off- stealing and plagiarizing my works. now they are lost.I began to call them out as I see them stealing materials from my published books. they will never accept my challenges to them. they keep hiding and stealing as vampires. I have so much more history which they cannot steal and which will expose them to the light of truth, as pirates, thieves and vampires.
- the term- livity-refers to all things relating to life and living. In the rasta icabulary of ras cardo, peter tosh and the trench town brethrens reasonings in the 60's, it took on a strictly defined meaning as to the purpose and reason for life. Rasta is all about life, jah life and liberty, not death and destruction. It is a term not to be used loosely. It was coined by ras cardo.
-reggae and radiologic technology-what's the connection?I often forget that I alone occupies this most enviable position. for over 53 years to date I have been working and training others in the field of -medical radiation technology. saving lives is what I do best. reggae is my creation and I am the one who brought it into the field of medical radiology. I remain board certified in several countries.the music is a healing force during many a medical procedure.
Anyone who states- my country is not so innocent- may be stating a truth which goes not only to his feelings about patriotism, but speaks to his state of mind and ambivalence as to what he will do should he gain an office of power and control. For such is the hallmark of demagogues.
babylon often use betrayals to tear us apart and to turn us into enemies. So many today are not aware of this trap to keeping us enslaved.
believe it or not-my research over the years has shown just how much-the smoking of weed-in places like jamaica can unite even the most hateful of whites and blacks. I have seen known white supremacists in america mingling with blacks in jamaica smoking weed.but when they are back in america its a different story. I mean even white racists cops in america. jamaica provides-safe haven- for them all. so, I ask why the change when back in america? my research continues for the real answer. let's discuss this!
book/radiology journal- 53 years strong in 2021-shift change- one of the most precarious times for any patient to be in a hospital. over the years I have documented in the most detailed way- of things which can, and will go wrong-yet so many may be unaware or choose to ignore the dangers. consult with me and I will tell you why. my independent research is ongoing.its x-ray exposure of a different kind.
check this out- so many people today are trying to sell their stolen goods of reggae from their archives in memorabilia and other artifacts just as thieves do to pawn stores to fence stolen items. Be not deceived! this is how they suck the blood of the sufferers- as bob marley said.
children in poverty quotes this is the result of a failing economy. families in fragmentation everywhere. split ups, break ups have become common place as we all see the destruction of the human race. what a disgrace, and terrible plight of these young and innocent ones, as fathers say bye- mothers and babies cry. I know it won't be long, for jah, jah children to sing my song. rampant neglect by parents is everywhere. the children suffers because their parents just don't care or give a damn.so, what else is new about man's inhumanity to man?
conglomerhates-this is a term that I coined while noticing the umbrella strategy under which certain entities in the -murderous music industry- steal the wailers reggae legacy. it was also a strategy developedin the early 1800's by which some sets of folks joined forces with each other to the exclusion of some, thereby monopolizing the market. today, we see the umg/bmg system of music and entertainment conglomerhates/conglomerates- doing the same thing.
CREATOR OF MANY WORDS AND PHRASES RELATED TO REGGAE, RADIOLOGY, AND RASTAFARI. A GIFTED TEACHER OF LEGENDS. eg-REGGAE OPERA D.I.V.A- DIVINELY INSPIRED VOCAL ACAPPELA. CREATOR OF REGGAE SKANKING, AND DANCE.
Dem building church and universities, deceiving the people continually, graduating thieves and murderers, sucking the blood of the sufferers. I say, tell the people the truth. Ras cardo reasoning lyrics shared with bob marley about- babylon system.
discharge by death- in this technotyrannical society. I say this:- the youths now come of age, filled with hate, anger and rage, all learned and conditioned behaviors from adults, as they discharge by death upon the world's technotyrannical stage. they all see death as a way of life. How foolish?
every messenger of the most high god knows when the time is near for them to leave earth's creation. This earth is not our permanent home, and with jah we are never alone. There is no death of the spirit, so we all should know that we are just passing through. Life is everlasting. Jah lives!
fire pon rome- the rastaman did sing this truth, and like so many he suffered the consequences in babylon. Babylonian catholicism tried to silence him, yet rome was destroyed by nero in an a.D. 64 fire.- the truth.
For those trying to change god's creations I say this-there was no-big bang-atheistic revelation. Jah exists before time. Faith is belief confirmed by truth. Faith happens. Faith fears not. Faith empowers. God is faith. Seek faith! faith is-without which there is none. Wise up and seek truth on which faith lives.
for years the youths of america keep telling me this:-I'm bored! when I ask them why, they have no answer. my concern goes deeper-I ask, how can your life be so empty in a land of plenty? that's when I begin to share my reggae education with them. its good to see them develop a sense of purpose after that discourse.
hypocrites,- they master the art of concealing their distaste for others, while they invent lies to keep their biases and corrupt prejudices alive.
I am a teacher of many, but a student of life, for when I teach, I also learn. my students show me the effects of my works. I do not teach radicalization, nor confrontation. I give the education for a healing of the nation, from which peace should flow.
I am here to celebrate trench town and its people, the place where I trod the days of my youth. god has used my reggae to reach the world just as I have done in my practice of radiologic technology worldwide. I will never forget its people.
I am like the sun, shining over all, yet no man dare to come directly into my atmosphere. I am like the rain when it falls, its not on one man's doorstep. men will seek to go to other planets, but never to my face. jah almighty did warn-no man cometh to the father but by me. my reggae, ordained by jah, is all those mystical truths.
I came legally to america to help the people, but here is what I witnessed as a black man. I see a system of entrapment for blacks which has been set in place for years and has been concretized and solidified in such ways with racism as the driving catalyst, and gate keeper. this makes it almost impossible for blacks to excel-so my reggae sings-no chains around my feet, but still I'm not free? can you imagine people building a system which enslaves them? define freedom in america!
I coined the word-frienimicus- using the latin I learned in catholic high school at the same time when I coined the word- reggae from the word streggae. I knew from an early age that languages in latin and greek were used by the ancients and now forms the roots of many english words. it has helped my icabulary and word power immensely. this means when a friend becomes an enemy as when an enemy becomes a friend. I learned latin and greek at an early age, mostly self taught.
I did say. Reggae is rastafarian, prophesy, and message giving. It aims to unite people in a loving way, so we can stop all this hatred, racism, and killings. I think the music industry is trying to take that spirit out of it and really secularize it- but that will never happen! it is the word of god speaking to his people.
I have told the world that there is a reggae song which speaks the issues of whatever we see happening in the society today. I am not surprised to see what happened in the us capitol on 1/6/2021. Reggae has spoken of all this. Jah time has come.So much more to come!!
I said this to the trench town people years ago and wrote it in my book-the true trench town story' -which I published.many have lost their souls for the cause of freedom, and reggae singers are included because there are evil souls out there who do not want freedom to prevail. they have taken the lives of my most beloved people and it continues unabated today in 2020.
I would love to see the day when my reggae will finally free america and africa, but the way america is heading I have to seriously doubt that will happen anytime soon. racism, bigotry and hate has devoured america to great depths, but I must keep on trying.
i, ras cardo am here to make sure that-the express wishes of those who are dead will not be set aside by the evil works and schemes of those who are living and who would choose to steal and pirate our legacies. This is also my history.
i, ras cardo created reggae in my 1962 trench town yard. I have the details of all those present at the time. I did say:- reggae is rastafarian prophecy and message giving. It aims to unite people in a loving way so we can stop all this hatred and this killing stuff. I think the music industry is trying to take that spirit out of it and really secularize it- told to the -atlanta journal news writer- steve dollar. Posted in his article-more than a beat, reggae is his belief- inside the arts. Circa 1990's- people in the arts.
i, ras cardo will say this truth. All my works as posted online or off are in my copyright control before you see them.I will also add-if some humans could stop looking at other human beings- as property- for sale or let, then will the world be on its road to peaceful co-existence of the races. Until then, there will continue to be strife and hatred and death! for in the minds of men exists the contemplation to do evil.
If america must call itself-a in god we trust-nation as written on its money, then it must stop being -the hypocrite and hate monger that it manifests in other things. We love to shout- oh my god-for so many things which suddenly comes upon us, but still we live a life of hatred and contempt for our fellow man. This hypocrisy will destroy us all. God is not mocked!
In this technotyrannical and evil society today, death has a new definition. Here is what it means:- d.E.A.T.H= don't eat anything that's harmful. Almost anything ingested will kill you. Moderation, even in safe food and drink should be the goal of all people.
it is amazing how many people especially in america today-2020, who do not know that when a politician lie to them, in effect, it takes away their freedom, namely their freedom to be truthfully informed. this recent -pandemic of lies- by government is one such case. look at how many people trust them to their own detriment. it is like the blind leading the blind. my reggae prophecy in the message of bob marley whom I mentored sang-never let a politician grant you a favor, they will always want to control you forever.I am a witness to this truth sang years ago . I told bob to sing it!
it was my trench town reggae in the music of the rasta messengers like-burning spear- culture(joseph hill)- and others that taught the world that- christopher columbus was a liar. He did not discover jamaica nor america. So why are we still honoring him today?
its futile looking for -motives- when we already know the reasons as to why certain things happen. An exercise in futility will not a safe solution make. Most things are casually related. If a=b, and b=c, then a=c.
jamerican- the word applies mostly to those from jamaica who has become domiciled in america, and have taken on the american influence whether they are permanent residents or citizens. It also applies to americans who have taken on jamaican domicile and citizenship. Those in canada are called-ja'cans- the cans meaning canada.
listen! jamaicans has long known how americans-black or white-try to imitate their way of speaking. We call it-mannerisms.Black americans will visit and mingle to learn and steal some of our creative ways which they will later put their own rubber stamps on...But they will never say that we influenced them. For example- the words-brakkish, and madeekscomes from jamaica. One was as old as my mother's mother. The other was coined in my time.I will define them here separately. They are all in my archival-lyrics slangs and interpretations. A so wi stay!
listen! trench town was a healing sanctuary for many a wandering souls in kingston jamaica. I am here now to make sure that this crucial part of our history/my history will be permanently enshrined with us legends and be so protected. No one else can do it.
listen!! my real wish is for people of all races, ethnicities, class and creeds, to show humanity, love and respect for each other. this was the same things bob marley, peter tosh, and all our trench town people wished for, but never see materializing. I did say- man is a communal animal. if he loses this communality then he will perish and become extinct my reggae aims to keep that wish alive. but still I hope..
living in a foreign land- for most.listen! some come to america, canada or england, hoping to make a living, but not knowing how long they will live-work (7)- or more jobs to make ends meet. helping those left behind in their homeland, western union, knows the stories of cash flow desperation. most never live long to enjoy their labors, for the stress and toils alone brings illnesses related to overwork- heart attacks, diabetes, pollution and death.you run from one fire and into the next- to what end I ask?
Most men act real stupid trying to restrain the emotions of an emotionally strong and tenacious woman. They often find themselves in an -emotional quick sand- the more they wiggle, the deeper they sink-after someone dies of course! what stupidity!
my mentoring with bob marley was both detailed and expansive. he was willing to learn, so I showed him a lot- the reasoning-yu a go tired fi si mi face, you kaan get mi outta di race- was one of many prophetic reggae and rastafari vision which he put in a song. today, his face is everywhere. I am ras cardo who created reggae and the music in my 1962 back yard. I own the copyrights for reggae creation and others.library of congress has the proof.
my message to all black people globally is this:-did we not have enough great examples of leaders and achievers to follow? so, why were they hidden from us? who deceived us? we must resurrect them all and learn the hidden history lessons they lived before it gets too late.
My message to jamaica is simple. This is 2019-I, ras cardo, reggae creator from trench town comes now and say:- you can change the report, but you cannot change the history of trench town. What is done , cannot be undone!
my mother always said-once a man, twice a child! she explained thus:- a man will become, and act almost like an infant child, although fully grown as an adult, if and when certain diseases in life strikes him. He crumbles easily.
My quotes are like an endless stream in the reality of life. Those who learn from what I share become the ground penetrating, mesmerizing forces, seen but unseen, to which no technology can detect. The forces which traverses the blood brain barrier leaving no visible mark on the M.R.I images.
my reggae music was created to chant down babylon. I/we said-they see their dreams and aspirations crumble in front of their face, and all of their wicked intentions to destroy the human race- my reasonings with bob marley and the trench town people put into song.
my reggae teaches the history of our people. it speaks about slavery then and now. how many americans know about the-1811 slave revolt? slavery built america. when I speak of reparation for slaves as black people this is something that should never be denied. why are the current politicians having a problem with reparation? why is there no slave monument in america? my reggae asks the questions!!
my reggae was created to teach the message of truth to the people , especially the youths. Jamaican youths and others all over the world face a most daunting and doubting future because they will not know the true history from which they came. Black people have been mis -educated for years. How many black youths today in america know about the 1811-slave revolt in the louisiana -manchar swamp? how many knew that -christopher columbus- did not discover america? how many youths in jamaica knew that columbus did not discover jamaica? and what about the slave rebellion in morant bay? if we lose our history, we lose ourselves and identity as a people. My reggae teaches the people.
my trench town created reggae is a spiritual mission, not a competition, or something to follow aimlessly with blind ambition. It is sacrosanct, and for a healing of the nation. This is all embodied in my- reggae education/r.A.S.P.E.C.T1
on modern man, modernity, and technotyranny, I say this:-hooked on technology. can't discern myth from reality, loses his identity, yearns for a state of ideality. one thing he knows, is that no matter how older he grows, he sees this as just a delusion- he has no solution, that's why there is so much confusion.
one thing about this pandemic is sure-it has brought the hidden injustices and inequities in a racially flawed system in america of the abject conditions of the poor to the rich man's door. America cannot hide from it's hate and racially motivated wickedness against black people. Black people in america must now-wise up- and seek their own destiny. Sufferings has been -much too long!
one thing poverty has taught me is how to be patient.because I learn that so many times,-driven by our desire to make things better with our circumstances, we often overlook the dangers of unforeseen catastrophic consequences. my beloved mother would say-tek time, run fast. jamaican proverbial wisdom.
People ask me about legacy. This is already done in my works of reggae, radiology, mentoring, teaching the youths and advocating for the people. My ongoing writings and research speaks volumes .I know that someday my works will be praised by the critics, revered by the skeptics,respected by the cynics, continue to be researched by the academics, and loved by those who know and love truth all over the world. It will defy description and pose a dire challenge to historical analysis. It will end racism in america and free africa as my reggae music sings. Jah people will see freedom.
people keep asking me about -why I am so passionate about trench town and its people? they also want to know what- bob marley and peter tosh was like. I will say to them:- just think about some poor youths trying to sing their way out of poverty while their friends were being killed around them almost daily, and to see most of them die a tragic death. this is trench town.I am here to tell this history and truth.
poem- when good cops die I ask the lord why- why do they need to go when our country, america needs them so! (2) it was the officer at the capitol, a rage of attackers on their fellow man. now the officer in boulder, his death could not be colder. (3) my heart hurts for their family. the home will never be what it used to be.I must pray, say a prayer for their family. america will never rid itself of such hate full tragedy.
political inhumanity- this is the inhumanity shown by government against its own people or any people who runs to it for help and safety, yet is blatantly denied access to care. It should be classified as a crime- against humanity, and those responsible should face the prosecutorial justice of the world court.
racism is so woven into the fabric of american society that it will take several decades, if possible, to de-programme the populous not to see others as just-property-to be sold and let.Until then, the injustices will continue.
Sad but true-the pandemic has shown us many things. Lord I see, a world, an america showing the signs of a -third world country-while some folks with enormous wealth do not give a damn about those who are suffering. Long food lines- people waiting for water-from stand pipes-preventable deaths of poor people. This is what we have become. Save our souls oh jah almighty god of our creation.
the pandemic has created a feast for funeral directors and morticians. The greed of cannibals are now satisfied as they collect and smile their way to the bank while the tears are falling. Their fees just get higher and higher.
The society creates criminals out of men then incarcerates and kills them for the criminals they become. The classic case of -jeffrey epstein, and other donald trump affiliates- who died in prison is just one example.
the system set. The truth is:- insurance premiums are set on mortality rates so that companies would pay out less than they take in. In america black people died earlier than whites.So discrimination set in. Racism dictated that-emancipated blacks were uninsurable. Discrimination based on statistics has now a technotyrannical basis. We have become a racially decadent society.
The truth about wars:- picture this! those who initiate wars are never the ones dying in it. What a waste. The devil never takes a day off. Why fight over something no one wins?
There are basically three types of men in relationship circles. Providers, protectors, parasitic. The providers work and provide for family. The protectors will protect family at all cost. The parasites will let someone else do the work and provide while they also partake of the bounty. Love is shown by those who provide and protect, but the parasites cares about only what they can get from the host. Loving the host is absent.
there is no living creature, with no future and no past. For to be alive encompasses both dimensions. God is god because he has no beginning nor no end. This is the true meaning to be everlasting. He alone is everlasting.
there is no other profession in the history of man which shows his evil intent than politics, but this he already knows to be true, except for the fact that his emotions and ambitions won't allow him to admit because of his blind arrogance and stupidity.
they see their dreams and aspirations crumble in front of their face, and all their wicked intentions to destroy the human race- we must use reggae music to chant down babylon. All forums of elite domination must be destroyed, and we use reggae music to do it.
trench town is my waterhole from which I shall drink of africa to quench my thirst. many good things and people came out of trench town and I am here to tell the world that truth.
Truth -has a way of silencing the enemy or your adversaries. My reggae is the sword of the spirit of truth, jah truth. It is the acronym for-taking reggae unto the heathens.
Unfortunately, for most who are oppressed, they never live long enough to see the end of the oppressor.
When the jamaican rastaman meets you-puts his hand on his chest, bows and says-respect- this is a dignified greeting- he extends to you even without knowing you. He is showing you that he comes in peace, and love. It is then, for you to extend the same. This is civility and humanity.
witnessing the horrific deaths of black folks in america, including the genocidal deaths of those of us from covid, my soul grieves, as I must resolve-if sufferings and deaths must be things which defines us as black people, then let it be at our own choosing. let it not be at the sole discretion of our enemies. how long must we suffer for being brought to a strange land? a passion for my people never leaves me.
you can say whatever you want, but I will tell you this truth- there is a reggae song which speaks the prophesies of every condition we see today. my reggae creation is like the biblical book of psalms and proverbs. its all true. its divinely spiritual.
YOU CANNOT REFORM A SYSTEM THAT WAS DESIGNED TO OSTRACIZE AND MARGINALIZE A CERTAIN CLASS OF PEOPLE i.e THE POOR. IT WAS A SYSTEM FATALLY FLAWED AND DESIGNED AS REPRESSIVE AB INITIO! IT IS SELECTIVELY GENOCIDAL, AND ITS LAWS MUST BE DISOBEYED.
