I’d never really considered Muzungu / Ugandan relationships in that light, and then I thought – with a pang – of the guy I’d been seeing on and off for a year.At the time it never occurred to me he fitted into that category. In a (mostly) conservative country like Uganda, you’re often judged on your appearance.Character, ambition, communication style and family goals are just a few of the dimensions that we take into consideration, so you can be sure you’ll be introduced to Caribbean singles who share the same beliefs as you when it really counts.Plus, unlike other free Caribbean dating agencies and websites in the UK, e Harmony won’t make you spend hours scrolling through profiles, searching for someone special.In Uganda, Rastas or ‘Rasta lookalikes’ symbolise non-conformism. – we come from societies where self-expression through your personal image is quite normal, encouraged even. Rasta refers (incorrectly) to “any person having dreadlocks.” “True Rastafarians believe that Ethiopia’s Emperor Haile Selassie a.k.a. Rastafarianism is a common religion amongst black Jamaicans and deeply rooted in African culture.Rastas eat a diet of vegetables, fruit and fish and keep their bodies, mind and soul healthy by staying active in global issues.We know Rastas have essentially unlimited experience with little white girls, so they know how to talk to them. Rastas do not care how dirty the girl’s feet are, or the last time she showered.
So for the sake of this article, I have thrown the cosmetic and the real into one big cultural melting pot. I echo the sentiments of this guy, who said: “Come on people, think about it before you all start judging dem Rastas. You must be joking – you don’t know what’s living in that hair! Anja echoed my thoughts: “Rastas are generally a lot more liberal than most Ugandans.
RASTA IS SWEET, COOL, CALM AND COLLECTED WITH A SENSE OF TLC (tender loving care) AND REALITY. real Rasta don’t drink…” I’ve spent the last few weeks pondering this question and asked girlfriends I posted this same question on Facebook – and then it got interesting! They’re less conservative.” To some women, Rastas represent the exotic.
Having dreadlocks or being dark-skinned does not define your “Africaness” – but maybe the ‘first time to Africa’ Muzungu hasn’t worked that out yet?
