Before he was crowned, Selassie's name was Ras Tafari Makonnen. That's where the name "Rastafari" comes from. I don't think that's a particularly unique point of view.

The Washington Post interviewed her and asked what it was like having to give up the fairy tale of being a princess. She had just returned from a supermarket that stocks food from all over the world, walking down a street so clean you could eat off of it, through air so clean you could breathe it, among a population so well integrated that a Euro-American, a Chinese, a Russian and a Latin American all smiled at her and greeted her, and was making dinner with appliances that she thought only NASA had. She answered, "Maybe there still are fairy tales. They just happen in lands far, far away, like Alexandria." Best comment I've ever heard about the good ol' USA.
