I thought this one would be about the book/film "The Shack", where God appears as a black women. I liked the book, haven't seen the movie.

But no, apparently:

Before we scurry on to other metaphors for the Divine, it is important to recognize how our theological imaginations have been poisoned and impeded by anti-blackness. Because we associate the Divine with whiteness and “light”, it is difficult for us to embrace God in black skin, especially God in black female skin.

and...

God as a black woman violates our expectations. Due to our conditioning, we expect God to be white and male.

Really? Do you all think of God as a white guy?
