In mainstream media, Haile Selassie is constantly portrayed falsely as a benevolent Pan-Africanist & is even worshipped by Rastafarian ******s. However, this couldn't have been further from the truth, since his true feelings/views towards them was one of disgust and disdain for ******s.
To begin with, "When Haile Selassie fled to London, [Marcus] Garvey tried to contact him but was snubbed, and it was reported that "the emperor did not desire any contact with 'Negroes."
Furthermore, "When Haile Selassie arrived in London he was interviewed by the Nigerian Daily Times about Ethiopia's racial identity, whether the Ethiopians regarded themselves as Africans, and why they looked down upon the Black people. Haile Selassie replied that the color bar allegations were Italian fabrications. He reaffirmed, however, that Ethiopians were not, and did not regard themselves as negroes, as they were a Hamito-Semitic people."
Haile Selassie is a stellar example as to why Pan-Africanism is a hoax, since he was it's biggest public proponent, but never held those beliefs true to his heart & even had some hatred for ******s.
