Jah! Mutaburuka Rait!

Whatever you think of Mutaburuka's theology, his views of Christianity, etc., the fact of the matter is that he speaks a lot of sense - sometimes. Geof Brown has written a column in today's Observer entitled "Patois and English, not either/or." In the printed version of this article is a pic of Muta, a Jamaican Rastafarian Dub Poet. Under the pic, Muta is quoted to have said:

“We write a language we do not speak. We speak a language
we do not write.”

Jah! Mutaburuka right! :)
