LOVE - PEACE - UNITY - EQUAL RIGHTS
Jah Rastafari - H.I.M. Haile Salassie I, Emporer Of Ethiopia, Lord or Lords, King of Kings, Conquering Lion of the Tribe of Judah, Elect of God.
That until the philosophy which holds one race superior and another inferior is
finally and permanently discredited and abandoned: That until there are no
longer first-class and second class citizens of any nation; That until the color
of a man's skin is of no more significance than the color of his eyes; That
until the basic human rights are equally guaranteed to all without regard to
race; That until that day, the dream of lasting peace and world citizenship and
the rule of international morality will remain but a fleeting illusion, to be
pursued but never attained; And until the ignoble and unhappy regimes that hold
our brothers in Angola, in Mozambique and in South Africa in subhuman bondage
have been toppled and destroyed; Until bigotry and prejudice and malicious and
inhuman self-interest have been replaced by understanding and tolerance and
good-will; Until all Africans stand and speak as free beings, equal in the eyes
of all men, as they are in the eyes of Heaven; Until that day, the African
continent will not know peace. We Africans will fight, if necessary, and we know
that we shall win, as we are confident in the victory of good over evil.
