It's not a simple issue that's binary is nature (black or white), How allegorical is the Pathfinder campaign setting supposed to be?
Do we ban Amiri because she goes against the ideas promoted in contemporary feminist theory?
Do we hold Paizo responsible for such actions? And what do we do about it?
Do we bombard their twitter accounts like critically minded feminists did to Joss Whedon during Avengers 2?
Paizo is just a role-playing game publisher not justice's hand for all of the world's woes. They do have a policy of inclusion not exclusion, and they do that admirably, although they do have to cater to the interests of a broad range of people, and make products that sell.
Not everyone views Pathfinder as a vehicle for social progression, and its fine that people do, but I think the history of D&D/Pathfinder and its community is strong enough to have many versions of the Pathfinder game.
Create some african gods and submit them to a 3PP publisher, accountability starts at home, rather than always expecting other people to do it for you.
Edit: I have studied post-colonial theory while at university, and queer theory, my senior lecturer, Adam Geczy wrote a book about it, so I have some idea how complex the issue is. It's not an easy fix and can be divisive even among people within the same community. Paizo are doing their best in the often turbulent socio-political climate we exist in.
Come on, that is just purposely misreading of what he wrote.
