Book Description

10 Dec 2007
Book Description:

"The Royal Parchment Scroll of Black Supremacy, written during the 1920s by a proto-Rastafari preacher, Fitz Balintine Pettersburg, is of historical and religious significance to followers of the Rastafari movement. Along with The Holy Piby, it is today recognized as one of the root documents of Rastafari thought. It is a surrealistic stream-of-consciousness polemic against the white colonial power structure, a palimpsest of Afrocentric thought, brimming with rage and energy." (Quote from wikipedia.org)

This book is essential for reasons that have not been seen at the time and are still obscure today because most people look at such attempt at creating a new religion as futile and useless, if not plainly childish or delinquent: making money from the gullible audience. The fact that this document and the religion it contains target the black audience does not change this financial and commercial objective. But that is too simple to reject something without analyzing it at all because of its commercial dimension;

First it was written in 1925, when Marcus M. Garvey, to whom the book refers several times as a general or a prophet, was in prison in Atlanta, Georgia at the time and he will come out of it only in 1927 when his five year sentence will be commuted by IUS President Coolidge to deportation to Jamaica, which meant he could never come back to the USA.

In other words some followers, and maybe some sharks, were taking advantage of the absence of the leader of the Universal Negro Improvement Association (UNIA) from the public scene to reach out and set up a new organization that would have a religious basis, knowing that Garvey's constant reference to Jesus was no lip service but it was no affiliation either to any church at all. The point is important here. All Christian churches were originally European, hence white, and based on a sacred book that was interpreted as stating the racial affiliation of Jesus and all other characters from Adam onwards in the book as being white, including God to whose image man was created. We could have thought they might have moved away from this biblical reference, and in fact they did not.
