Rastafarians of today are a bit different than they once were, there are white Rastas.

Could you elaborate on that? How are they different? Is there a source on the web that lists their current doctrine?

Just something I came across.

Most of what I'm saying is just coming off the top of my head, so I'd have to go googling if I wanted to give you sites.

thing common has totally wrong is the association of dreads with rastas only.

info on dreads

polti,kavil,gabriel,stan,pedro,peya,ben.. friends from school who sported dreads and it had nothing to do with rastafarianism or racism.. it was just something they did back home in papua new guinea and there are plenty of other cultures im sure who have a long association with dreads

btw good thing this is bumped, I was listening to Common's "Like Water For Chocolate" CD the other day and on the song "Heat" he says:

"Most sell out like a dread with a white girl"

So that must be how he really feels then since he wrote about that in his song.

I also remember hearing somethin like

"Black dudes walking with white girls in their arms,

I be mad at them as though I knew their moms"

It was on the "Be" album.
