The Dubroom reviews a lot of different material, from musical to educational to beneficial and more. We've got music, but also material for artists and producers as well as researchers of more conscious material. As always, when the Dubroom reviews something, this means that this website considers the material at least fair. So don't expect any negative reviews. When it's here, we recommend it. Period.

RASTAFARI AND THE DEVIL'S ADVOCATE
DUBROOM VIDEO REVIEW
Both within and outside the movement of Rastafari, there is debate about just about any subject you can think of. Reasoning is a training of the mind, and when you are convinced of what you know then there is no reason not to enter into a debate.

Provided, of course, that the debate or reasoning is thoughtful.

Now there is also a lot of debate about the movement too. In that debate, there is often a lot of foolishness and disinformation from especially so-called established religions and propaganda machines.

In this video from the early 1990's, we can actually see a debate between a Rasta and someone who has criticism against Rastafari. And there are a number of guests with interesting things to say about the topic. Obviously the topic is heavyweight and so the debate is, too.

The program opens with a criticaster of Rastafari saying that although the movement of Rastafari is opposed to materialism, the Ethiopian Emperor was not. And that is an understatement, as the video continues with a "visual illustration" of his point.

At this moment, we are only two minutes into the video.

The criticaster turns out to be the host of the show. Interesting. the name of the show becomes clear at this point. He turns to a young Rasta in the audience who apparently lost a job (or couldn't get one) because of his identity as a Rasta. 

Then he introduces an "evolved Rastafarian", a dramatist and writer called Shango Baku. He was a member of a group of UK based Rastas who went to Ethiopia to celebrate Haile Selassie's centennial and the show host asks Shango some very provocative questions.

For starters.

The interview turns into a debate where both participants ask and are asked questions. About Shango's belief that the Ethiopian Emperor is God, and whether he died or not.

Then we are introduced to some interesting guests: a cousin of the Ethiopian Emperor, for example. Or his biographer, who has some interesting things to say as well. A representative of the Ethiopian Church joins the debate as well, to go deeper into the idea that His Imperial Majesty is God or not.

The topic of repatriation is covered, too. 

It turns out, that to ask "when are you going?" doesn't really provide the non-answer the show host was apparently looking for. But when he looked in the audience, he also saw a white youth with dreadlocks and so he had the caricature he was hoping to get.

Shashamane land is also spoken about, albeit towards the end of the program. That's just before the show host exposes the fact that he does know about Rastafarians who do not believe that the Ethiopian Emperor is God and tries to use that fact to make a separation between Rastafarians who do believe that.

A very interesting video, literally and truly from the very first minute to the-one-before-the-last.
