A Rastafarian who is white. It is possible for a white person to be a Rasta, for we are all children of Jah. Jah loves every human the same, even if Jesus was probably black (See black Jesus for info).

White Rastas got a bad name because of angsty white kids who are obsessed with the whole Marley family. A person of this kind either is or wants to be a total stoner, which goes against the morals of Rastafari. To the Rastas, Ganja is a sacrament and shouldn't be used just to be 'stoned'. They usually know nothing about the Rastas or Selassie and instead worship something undivine, such as Bob Marley or their sack of herb. If you know someone of this kind, you can find a definition for him/her here: wigger.

White Rasta:
-May or may not have dreads.
-Might smoke the herb, but peacefully, not stupidly.
-Obviously knows about Rastafari and who Selassie is.
-Calm, layed back, being himself or herself.
-Serves Jah.

Wannabe-White Rasta:
-Probably has half-ass, greasy dreads, or cornrolls if they're stupid enough.
-Is either obsessed with weed and too scared to do it or already a total stoner.
-Knows little, if anything about Rastafari and likely has no religion or a fake Bob Marley-worshipping one.
-Really spazzy and always has to make sure they're acting as black as the black people around them.
-Serves whoever accepts them as being almost black.
-Seems to make their life mission to piss off their parents and other Christians, blindly thinking that Rastas don't have anything to do with Christianity.
-Likely has no black friends whatsoever.

A white rasta is a rasta born in a white mans body. Smoking the ganja, and growing dreds is the way in which they express there inner rastaness. Don't fear the white rasta, they are perfectly harmless, just aproach them and smile (they will share).
Dude, look at that crazy white rasta dance.

There are a few types of white rasta.
The most common is the middle class, marijuana-obsessed joke who emulates black people and Bob Marley. This type of white rasta almost never knows anything about rastas or Selassie.

Another type of White Rasta is the legit, Jah serving, moral, layed-back kind. This one doesn't necessarily have to have dreadlocks or smoke herb. He is a true Rastafarian.

The last type is your average joe, silly character. This type always has dreads, but not because he emulates black people, or is full of angst. Usually this white rasta decides to have dreads because it makes him feel different. It is more of an act of nonconformity (see: hipster). This kind of white rasta doesn't always have to smoke herb. To them it is really only about the hairstyle. Can't exactly be considered a poser, since he doesn't claim to know anything about the culture that comes with the hair.
Silly White Rasta thinks hes black... it's so pathetic.

A white person who thinks they are rastafarian. White people cannot be rastafarian because the whole movement is about black empowerment and fighting white oppression. Even if they believe that haile Selassie was the rebirth of christ, this does not make them rastafarian, because they do not actively fight white oppression
"White rastas are just white guys who want to smoke weed and listen to reggae"
