I can't believe I am writing this, but I'm doing this in hope that it'll stop people from DMing me with nonsense and silliness.
Marie Laveau isn't WHITE, and stop being upset because you think she looks WHITE. Marie Laveau was of mixed race, Creole. Her mother was Haitian and her father was European. Haitians comes in many shades (just like Africans). We don't know what her actual parents look like, (and I don't see why the fuck does that matter) but all we know is that her mother was Haitian and her father was white European. So whether her portraits look "whitewashed" which a lot of you like to speculate, the truth of the matter is that she was of mix race. Black and white, and if you know any mix race people we all come in variations of skin tones, facial features and hair texture. So, please stop with the ignorance and narrow mindedness. I know it is important to have important figures that look like us, but if you can't vibe with something or someone because of its skin tone that makes you a racist. So check yourself. Ever since I posted the pictures and videos of the Marie Laveau ceremony in New Orleans people felt that because I've been to Africa, I practice African religions and culture, that they can suddenly feel comfortable with expressing their racism against white folks. Let me stop you right now, racism is not something I practice therefor I don't welcome it. I am a woman of color and fucking proud of it. I practice African spirituality and embrace my African culture but none of that makes me a racist. I can love and embrace my African roots and traditions without having to choose some type of side or feel any type of way. Don't bring that over here. I won't entertain it. I'll exercise my rights to delete and block. Just how you should exercise your right of keeping your opinions to yourself. Thank you.
Racism is a flaw of humans. It is a mistake made by human beings it has NOTHING to do with spirits, gods and spirituality. NOTHING! Unless the spirit was once a person, that spirt has no race. The Mami Wata spirits which are from Ghana are whiter than chalk!
