Don't know why...if you Black you might wanna dive in on it.
Keep falling for that *** white people made up a long time ago...Voodoo is about spirituality...even though now, in many areas, it's become a form of religion and ***...white people got they hands on that too. In some areas, white people never got they hands on it tho.
Blak Magik, Voodoo, Hoodoo, etc. were deemed "witchcraft" by white people...because they were scared of what it could mean if Black people started practicing it all over.
Don't write off old people when they tell you some strange stories back in their day.
You know there is a thing such as white magic right? They also say Left Hand Magic and Right Hand Magic...forgot which one was suppose to be the "evil" one, or one for bad intentions.
There's Alchemists...Setians, Luciferians...all these people TRY to practice "Magik"...but it all came from one place...don't really need to say, you should already know.
All of it is some form of Afrikan Spirituality.
The Secret...the same *** thing...all that's happening is they repackaged what little information they COULD find and try to resell it.
I even got an old newspaper clipping from some New York newspaper talking about "Nyggers and Blak Magik/Voodoo" or something like that. White people were/are scared to death of that ***.
