013 • PSA: I QUIT Writing (3/3)
If your answer is “No,” then you know that you’d be treated differently with a deep brown hue paired with non-silky straight or non-nappy curly hair. (And, a non-thin physique.)
This means YOU know that MY life is very different from yours in many ways, whether it’s shopping for clothes at a chi-chi frou-frou boutique, attending a job interview, trying to get paid the same salary as an attractive and inexperienced beige-skinned colleague for the same work, or attempting to get a date.
Those of you who claim to be pro-Higher Power, pro-human, pro-woman, pro-empowerment, pro-equality, pro-diversity, pro-equity, and pro-inclusion, well, I believe you have a teeny-tiny responsibility to (non-monetarily) support brown-skinned folks YOU consciously choose to follow on Instagram.
When many of us CANNOT rely on mainstream institutions and influential individuals to help us out (please do NOT confuse “help” with “handout”) due to a clearly visible bias epidemic, YOU – the audience – are all that we have.
And if YOU are not willing to support women – and that includes darker-skinned women – as a consumer of their content, then I see no point in producing (hella expensive) content that is well-written for anyone.
All this nonsense to say, if anyone actually reads this thread and wants to continue hearing my boring views, catch me on @jesuisyaz.
I’ll be pushing out non-glamorous videos on this channel, so again, for the very few who want to MINDFULLY support my work as a conscious creative, you’ll find me on the aforementioned account.
You won’t find me posting on Brown Wasabi much, if at all moving into 2019. Too much work for zero engagement. In closing, thank you to the very few who showed some love on this account – truly appreciated. Peace. ✌🏿✌🏻

The longer I study and think about it, the more meaningful the Atonement becomes. Both in its own layered significance, and the frequency with which it appears in the answers to seemingly unrelated theological questions. It is central to theology and so far-reaching in its import. Yet none of the early Church Councils—upon which much of Western and Eastern creed is based—passed a verdict on it, claiming as “canon” one or another of the theories seeking to explain the particulars of it. It seems odd, that theories were late in developing, and furthermore that the Church did not, in the first centuries, convene to supply a definitive statement on it; and especially considering that multiple of the Councils concerned the person of Christ. But, I’m not discouraged by this. I think it may be fitting, that the event of greatest centrality to justification, sanctification, and glorification; the highest culmination of God’s love; the perfect universality to mankind; —is recognized as central, sacred, and universal enough to be above dispute; is God-given and God-preserved; is free.
Remember that being a follower of Christ also makes you a theologian. Even having a basic knowledge of theology enables you to more effectively communicate God’s truth to those in your circles of influence.

When you are not well-connected in the publishing industry, when you do not have the preferred phenotype that so many brands and consumers crave, and when your views do not mesh with the masses – this is what you have to resort to as a woman: you either pose in clothing that reveals your breasts and/or buttocks, or you push out images exhibiting a “modest” style, and then attempt to provide substance in the caption to back this “beauty” and brains bullshit.
We’ve really come quite far as a species, eh?
It amazes me that in 2018 A.D./A.C.E., if I’m a light-skinned woman with non-woolly hair, then I can actually make a better living selling “anti-racism” guides, newsletters or webinars (apparently, this is a popular money-maker for folks bearing this phenotype), then I can by writing. Like, WTF?!?! 😳
As someone who has dealt with pay differentiation because of my gender AND skin color since 1998, I hope you can understand my superficial frustration with the bias and bigotry that permeates all aspects of my livelihood 20 years later.
And, as a darker-skinned woman who has had to patiently put up with all kinds of online AND offline bigots (closet bigots included) in Miami and beyond for close to THREE decades, I hope you can understand the toll that color-centric stress has taken on my Soul.
I mean, those of you who weren’t born with my phenotype, I ask you this: would you want to have been born with “nappy” hair and super dark brown skin in this world? Seriously, would you?

True God of true God, Light from Light Eternal,
Lo, He shuns not the Virgin’s womb;
Son of the Father, begotten, not created;
O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
Christ the Lord.

011 • PSA: I QUIT Writing (1/3)
So, I’m looking to stop writing for a minute.
I don’t believe most of you read my posts, going by the severe lack of engagement.
This leads me to believe that anything I write about is boring to most of you. Or, most of you aren’t reading – just looking. (It’s cool. That’s your birthright.)
As I noted in the previous post, I deeply detest writing. And, I’m annoyed that in this day and age, as a woman, the primary way my writing will get noticed is through the vehicle of vanity. These days, it sickens me that I have to paint my face and pay an average of $400 dollars per photoshoot (yup), just to get my name and my writing (minimally) noticed on social media platforms.
As a darker-skinned woman, I have to go above and beyond my beige-skinned brethren in terms of pushing out professional imagery, just to get zero engagement on a platform with one BILLION active users.
If I had Chiara Ferragni’s phenotype (Google her story) AND I wrote like I did – y’all, I’d already be a multi-millionaire signing a contract to build a creative center for youth in under-resourced areas in my hometown right now. FYI, there are plenty of darker-skinned women bloggers-entrepreneurs (celebrities excluded) whose content is similar to or truthfully better than Chiara’s, but the majority of these humans don’t get much attention or much of a digital discipleship because of their phenotype. Folks, research catering to perception bias backs this up.
This is the society we live in. The prejudice in the physical world is now duplicated in the digital world.

NEW from PICKWICK PUBLICATIONS:
The Atonement Creating Unions
An Exploration in Inter-Religious Theology
BY Godfrey Kesari
FOREWORD BY Marius C. Felderhof
Why did Jesus die on the cross? Does the atonement have any spiritual significance? This book is a bold and imaginative endeavor to make atonement theology rational, in a fresh way, in our interreligious world.
Seeking connections between Christian and Hindu thinking in order to create hermeneutical bridges, Godfrey Kesari aims to open up creative ways of reimagining the doctrine of the atonement, which is so central to the Christian message. Kesari retains the particularity of the unique events embracing the life, suffering, and death of Christ while linking clearly to the more universal considerations that are encountered within Visistadvaitic Hinduism. These explorations in turn contribute to a new way of seeing the Christian revelation.
This is a ground-breaking work that attempts to find a way of treating and defending the centrality and theological significance of the atonement with contextual relevance.
Godfrey Kesari is the Vicar of the Holy Innocents Parish Church, Southwater, UK.

Você sempre está no palco. (...) E mesmo quando nenhuma outra personagem está por perto a arte continua. A audiência triúna assiste. Pág 47
As escolhas diante de você nunca vão embora. Cena após cena são dadas e fervilhante universo na audiência guarda a sua reação, sua fala, espera para ver se você vai gritar com a criança gordinha que derramou leite ou se você vai rir e beijá-la. Pág 48

Qual o seu partido? (A Missão Real)
Qual o seu partido?
Seu lado, sua tendência, sua pendência?
Nessa nossa luta dialética de cada dia
Interagindo nas redes, nas relações
Mostramos nossa verdadeira face
Antes oculta sob as máscaras da conveniência.
Então, qual o seu partido?
Seu lado – o que determina suas escolhas e discursos?
É Batista? Presbiteriano? Anabatista? Luterano?
Sim, qual o seu partido?
Já que estes, há muito, deixaram de seguir o original plano.
Como bons brasileiros seguimos deslumbrados
Com tudo o que procede dos Estados Unidos da América
E como bons seguidores pisamos no mesmo caminho
Transformando nossos clubes/igrejas em sedes partidárias
Aonde servimos uma mensagem não acessível a todos.
Evangelho? Qual deles?
O da Bíblia mal interpretada, o da bala para quem não se encaixa,
Ou o que serve ao interesse de alguns?
A escolha é livre, o choro também.
E como os irmãos do Norte,
seguimos defendendo e repetindo discurso alheio,
adestrados por porta vozes vendidos,
prostituídos em sua missão.
A bancada evangélica tem muitos representantes
espalhados pelas esquinas e organizações do país.
Segue em seu grito alucinante
De que é preciso sempre ganhar
Desumanizar e até matar
Para ser feliz.
De que partido você é?
Batista, Presbiteriano, Anabatista, Luterano?
Na missão real há rostos, etnias, diferença,
não bandeiras nacionais - representações das conquistas coloniais.
Porque na missão real não há espaço para triunfalismo,
não há chance para partidarismos denominacionais.
Entretanto, se você não se conformar
Ao padrão desses partidos
Nem se encaixar na visão desses gritos
Então enxergará a missão real que se nos foi apresentada.
Fácil é emitirem veredictos a respeito
Dos que se engajam nessa missão
sem contexto, sem conhecimento de causa.
Encaixotando Deus e seus servos
na imagem criada sistematicamente em suas mentes e liturgia.
Na missão real você chora, ri, lamenta, reclama,
porque é feito de carne e osso, não de ferro.
