Alex Rasta Story ( With dreadlock I can’t find any job )

by Alex Torres
(PR)I followed the Rastafarian religion for 5 years and so I have not cut my hair, but I live here in Puerto Rico.

It is very difficult to get a job with long hair …with dreadlocks Rasta still calling me and knowing that I firmly believe in that belief even though here in my country there is no Rastafarian temple.

I want your help. I need a document saying that I am a servant and believer in the religion which I serve, Rastafari… could you help me?

I fill out a questionnaire papers, which I do to send me I’m certified as a Rastafarian. I do not want to cut my hair and I want to believe strongly that rasta is accepted and respected. If I do not submit such documents that I am a believing Rasta, I have to cut my hair and miss my beliefs just because they ask me to work.

It is sad that this happens. If anyone knows of any place in Puerto Rico or the United States that can help me with this documentation to certify that I am a Rasta and respect for my beliefs, I’d appreciate it with all my heart.

I am a parent, a responsible citizen of 25 years who just wants to accept it and equally respected. As Rastafarians we have the same rights as other religions to work and be a citizen of profit. Thank you!

My English is not so good, my apologies.

spanish version…
He seguido la religión rastafari, de 5 años y por eso no he cortado el pelo, pero yo vivo aquí en Puerto Rico, es muy difícil conseguir un trabajo con el pelo largo en trenzas rasta me sigue llamando y que creo firmemente que la creencia, porque aquí en mi país no hay un templo rastafari. Necesito tu ayuda, necesito un documento que dice que yo soy sirviennte y creyente de la religión a la que sirvo, Rastafari, ¿podría ayudarme? Debo llenar un cuestionario de documentos, que tengo que hacer para enviarme estoy certificado como un rastafari. No quiero cortarme el cabello y yo quiero creer firmemente que rasta es aceptado y respetado, si no presentar documentos, como yo estoy creyendo Rasta, tengo que cortar el pelo y perder mis creencias sólo porque me lo piden para trabajar.

Es triste que pase esto. Si alguien conoce de algun lugar en Puerto Rico o en EU que pueda ayudarme con esa documentacion que certifique que soy Rasta y que por respeto a mis creencias, no me corto el pelo, lo agradeceria de todo mi corazon. Soy un padre de familia, un ciudadano responsable de 25 años que solo quiere que lo acepten y lo respeten por igual. Que nosotros los rastafaris tengamos los mismo derechos que las demas religiones de trabajar y ser cuidadanos de provecho. Gracias!

Q: Dear friend, I understand your plight. Hopefully someone will read this and be able to help you. As for me, I can’t help you, but you can listen to this song to get some encouragement…

respect!
