    real rastas do not deal with the eating or sporting of flesh for fashion reasons at all. I still have yet to hear the top money man profess anything but liking bob marley and smoking ganja. the french manicure nails didn’t help. nor did the dread perm. lol. he still has yet to profess Sela$$ie. all he is dealing with is vanity.
