Dubroom Online - Edition September 23, 2007


WWW, September 23 2007 - Most people will find the practice of "Rent-A-Rasta" an abomination and rightfully so.

The documentary which borrowed it's name from this practice of sex-slavery in Jamaica shows, how people are being forced into prostitution because of the slavery.

But it is only one aspect of the way in which Babylon Shitstem fights against the Movement of Rastafari.

The documentary shows, in sight and sound, how Rastafari is used as a commercial concept while the true Rastas are not even allowed to have a decent living.

The video has sights and sounds that may offend people, but the truth has to be exposed which is exactly what the film-makers have done, wittingly or unwittingly.

Give Thanks, One Love,

"Rent-A-Rasta": Sex Slavery in Jamaica (Video)

WWW, April 11 2008 - After some disturbing background information surfaced on the Dubroom Messageboards and was even provided by the producer of the video "Rent A Rasta" himself, the Dubroom will no longer embed the video on-site (or elsewhere).
The producer of the video turned out to be a very nasty person who definitely has more interest in making money over the backs of people he interviewed (and paid a mere 20 dollar) and spreading false information about people who actually want to forward the information presented in the video.

WWW, September 2007 - In sight and sound, "Rent a Rasta" portays the many fronts in which Babylon fights the Movement of Rastafari in Jamaca. How slavery continues until this very day.

When Babylon "discovered" the "New World", the original inhabitants were either killed or ghetto-ized while millions of Africans were taken from their homes to work as slaves on the land that was stolen by their slave masters.

The whole western "Judeo-Christian" "Civilization" is built on the slave trade and colonialization. Although everything is officially abolished many years ago, the practice continues until this very day.

Who feels it, knows it, as they say.

In Jamaica, they know it.

It was there, that the Movement of Rastafari was born with the crowning in Ethiopia of Ras Tafari Makonnen as Haile Selassie the 1st, the 225th descendant of King Solomon.

There was the true Judeo-Christian Civilization!

Ever since it's birth, the Movement has been the target of Babylon System. Persecution, disinformation, condemnation, infiltration, corruption, every trick in the book is used against this group.

"Rent a Rasta" deals directly with Babylon's downpressing of Jamaican people and Rastafarians in particular. The raw picture of what Babylon is really doing becomes clear.

The term itself refers to a practice of sex-slavery: hordes of tourists flood the island in search for paid sex with black dreadlocked men. The practice is shown in the video, people openly talk about it.

In the Rastaman's Camp, there's a completely different picture. Several Rastas are interviewed as they speak about the suffering, about being in Babylon.

The contrast in sight and sound is shockingly clear. While the narrator does his best to make sense out of the con-fusion shown in sight and sound, the video proofs without the shadow of a doubt just how abominable and evil Babylon really is.

While the real Rastas are suffering, telling the people to stop sinning and live a righteous life, Babylon has her own per-version of Rastafari which makes some others filthy rich.


MP3 Podcast: In Showcase Style (Doze)


WWW, September 2007 - Five crucial tracks from 1978-1982, selected by the Jamaica HiFi crew, Showcase Style!

When the maxi-single or 12" became popular, Jamaican Record plants began releasing extended mixes, usually a combination of a vocal track with a dub or DJ counterpart. Later, maxi-singles were released on so-called "Showcase" albums.

This podcast by the Jamaica Hi-Fi crew is a great example of such a showcase. The music, a combination of Jamaican and UK productions from the 1978-1982, comes in a 30 minutes non-stop mix that you will want to play again and again.

The selection is an intelligent report from both Jamaica as well as the UK. We will hear how Jamaican and UK Reggae developed during the period, the similarities and differences will become clear.

In 1978, Jamaican Reggae Music was dominated by Rockers. In 1982, it was Rub a Dub music. The time was "interesting", lots of political violence and conspiracies against the people of Jamaica, Reggae Musicians and Rastafarians in particular.

In the UK, the "Punky Reggae Party" went on big-time as both groups knew themselves to be the target of the very same Babylon Shitstem too. Militancy has always been a strong factor in most UK Roots Reggae until this very day.
