When Ziggy Marley boasted about his strong and staunch support for apartheid Israel, we knew that “Rasta” was heading down a slippery slope as a true Rasta would not support oppression in any form.
Now a white Rasta from Virginia has up the ante in mocking the Rasta Movement when he decided to join the Ku Klux Klan (KKK).
The Rasta Klan boy was spotted at a KKK rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Many people were astonishment and questioning why a Rasta would become a member of the KKK, a white supremacist group. The white “Rasta” was also wearing several Klan symbols on his shirt.
A while back when 18 Karat Reggae said there was nothing Rasta about white Rastas, the entertainment site caught a lot of flak and was even accused of being racist. The truth is, 18 Karat Reggae was only pointing out the fact that you never see white Rastas protesting Black oppression. Now, however, we can say that we have seen white Rastas supporting Black oppression.
It is a shame and downright disgrace, what the Rasta Movement that was started by Marcus Garvey and Leonard Howell has become. First we saw a Black “Rasta” supporting apartheid and now we see a white “Rasta” supporting the KKK. Marcus Garvey and Leonard Howell are turning in their graves.
