"There is a African American spiritual that says,"It's time to get ready to put on the long white robe."In Yoruba culture,we are taught that the white robe is your character,your Iwa. .When you wear white,you must be very careful of what you do.Obatala is the keeper of the white robe. He represents the universal princiiple of knowledge,patience, wisdom,humility,service and wealth."The white robe also makes you conscious of your environment and how you behave at all times.If you make a wrong move in the wrong direction, you will be seen.If you move carelessly or hasstily, you run the risk of soiling your white robe.Black men are being called upopn not to allow the ways of the world to continue to soil your white robe" - Iyanla Vanzant
