(português não é a minha primeira língua, por favor me perdoe)
going through the ‘orisha’ tag on tumblr and…psa…
no shade intended but people of ALL shades get called to ATRs. japanese people, middle easterners, and yes, white people, all people. i see dominicans, filipinos, mexicans, persians, chinese people, anglo-saxon whites in the service of the orixa and the lwa.
and honestly? it is not for us, humans on this earth, to judge what person gets called by orixa or lwa to serve them. it is not to us to say god, why do you want this white person as your priest or your priestess? because god, orixa, their lwa, has chosen them for a reason. they pick who they want. am i gonna argue with ezili danto, or oxala? no, ma’am. and it is not for anyone else to pass judgement on, either. if someone gets called to serve, and they answer that call, well! that is their path to walk in life, and i’m not getting in exu’s way over the color of someone’s skin.
