A rasta or rastafarian is someone who follows the religion of Rastafarianism.

There are some "poser" rastas, that only call themselves rastas, so that they can dread their hair and smoke weed.

The smoking of weed is considered a way of speaking to their god, Jah. Rastafarians do read and follow the bible, and they helped shape Jamaica's people nowadays.
A true rastafarian praises Jah with all his might.

The Rastafarian religion originated in Africa. It is often associated with the poorer black population of Jamaica. It is not just a religion, but a way of life. Rastafarians speak out against; poverty, oppression and inequality.....not just religious ideas but global problems. Rastafarians will use the Bible for guidence, although it is interpreted through black eyes.
