Know this :

Understand that Ifá deities are not Yoruba deities.

The deities are the ancient Yoruba ancestors' way of conceptualizing cosmological forces. They are universal forces,  not Yoruba forces.

Some people think from the angle that these deities are Yoruba deities and are supposed to have protected Yorùbás against invaders. This is faulty understanding.

These deities are entities that operate on divine principles, Ọ̀rúnmìlà is the prophet who taught the Yoruba ancestors how to live in harmony with these universal forces, but Ọ̀rúnmìlà is not just a prophet for Yoruba, he is a prophet to human race, so he has no personal bias towards any race (same as the other deities), they do not have a bias to any race, they are universal forces on universal assignments and will support whoever plays to the tune of the universal principles that Olódùmarè commissioned them to superintend over.

If a White man keys into the principle of the Òrìṣàs and the Black man doesn't, the Òrìṣàs will support the Whiteman against the black.

Truly, it was the Blackman that first conceptualized the universal energies and codified it into what is called Ifá, but the Whiteman uses the principles more deliberately than the Blacks today.

Ẹní rúbọ l'èṣù ń gbè.

The Whiteman offered the sacrifice required of him when he planned to come and invade the black man, the black man didn't offer sacrifice to prevent the invader from coming in.

That's why we are where we are today.
