Iím not inclined to remove the information I have gathered. Marcus Garvey is highly regarded by many people who regard the emperor as God. It is worth making them aware of what Garvey had to say, as many of them have no idea.
However, I would like to add your comments to the cover page. Yours is one of the better responses Iíve seen. It would be nice to add your comments to provide a better balance to Garveyís comments.
Would you mind if I published your email to me?

Greetings in the name of the Most High God. My name is Judiyah Watson and I have a few things to add concerning our Lord and Saviour Negus Christ. Many people in the world have criticized the Emperor for their own various reasons. I would like to say that it would be very beneficial to not only black people, but to people all over the Earth if they paid attention to the morals and righteous judgments of the King of kings.
It doesn't take a genious to comprehend why Haile Selassie I didn't take a more vengeful approach to the Italian-Abyssinian war like everyone on the sidelines, including Garvey, wanted him to take. Fasting, feasting, and prayer were all essential to the age-old Christian Kingdom of Ethiopia. Instead of traing his people to be a superpower amongst the worlds strongest and more sophisticated militaries, he stretched out his hands unto God and took the shame that came to Ethiopia by way of Mussolini and the Pope of Rome. The main reason why the Pope gave Mussolini orders to invade Ethiopia anyhow was a spiritual one. In 1930, when the Emperor was crowned King of kings and Lord of lords, the Pope of Rome had to attend the great coronation and bow down on his face to the Supreme Spiritual Head of the Earth Emperor Haile Selassie I. The Pope of Rome does not recieve props from any of the Kings of Ethiopia. Ethiopia is the oldest Christian Kingdom on this Earth. Haile Selassie's lineage extends from the union of King Solomon and the Ethiopian Queen of Sheba. The Pope realized this fact and blessed Mussolini's large, fascist army to make war with the blameless Ethiopians.
When the European diplomats brought war to his front door, Emperor Haile Selassie I threw it back at them. He went to Europe during his exile to fulfill the will of God. As a member of the League of Nations, he had to go before his white counterparts to manipulate them and to achieve the goal of going back to Ethiopia to be with his people again. He did not take on the role of a cowardly lion, nor was he trying to be white as Garvey insinuated. If Garvey would have stuck around to see the way King Selassie I inherited his Kingdom back from the fascist invaders, he would have indeed observed that all of his judgments concerning the King of kings was very off-target. This man pulled off the most clever trick in the book by manipulating the League of Nations to assemble together and fight Rome and make them leave his country.

Greetings brethen. I would be very obliged if you were to put my response on the net. It is very essential that people stop criticizing the Emperor and to actually take a deeper look at the decisions that he made. He did everything for the best interest of his people as well as all black people around the Earth. The treacherous white man has always come into view and continuously sparked controversy between us brothers.
Marcus Mosiah Garvey and Emperor Haile Selassie I are two of the greatest men who ever spoke out for the black race. I wish that we could all come together and overstand the fact that the Emperor was and is Negus(King) Christ. Garvey thought that people like me think that the Emperor is God. The Emperor himself will tell one that he himself is not God because God is metaphysical and no one man can understand the true ways of him. Haile Selassie I is Christ. We all know that Christ is God manifested in the flesh. It would not have been possible for Jah, God Almighty, Yahwey, to come on this Earth and be seen by eyes if he was not in the flesh. Other than this, Garvey was absolutely right concerning his philosophy of God and who and what he is. The King James version of the Bible plainly states in the book of Acts 2:29-30, God made a promise to King David that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, that he would raise up Christ to sit on King David's throne. If one was to read a New International version, or a study Bible, it would state that God would raise up one of King David's descendants to sit on his throne as the Messiah. Either way, we know that the Good Word speaks of King Haile Selassie I, Ras Tafari. He is the Redeemer for us all. If we would have paid attention to Christ unlike our first forefathers, then we would all be able to recognize the Glory and Goodness of Their Imperial Majesties(referring to Neguse Negast(King of kings) Haile Selassie I and his queen Empress Menen, who by the way carries the title Nigiste Negast, which means Queen of kings.
