The United States of Hoodoo Reviews:

Hoodoo hit pieces are a large thing in the black community, folks who have turned vs there own folks and sided with the thief of everytime Jesus the rip off Christ... Unlike those folks who talk like they had a well to do Christian upbringing- can speak and write at a third grade reading lvl barely- the folks of Hoodoo come off as pursuers of true knowledge, experience outside church and school bibles. I literally knew nothing about Hoodoo going in and immediately I was taken in by the soft healing hands of Legba. The people, the places, the music, the Women! Oh my god Legba the women, unlike in pop culture and religious circles these Hoodoo "Women" are sexy intelligent. The first girl that appears shined brilliant in a sea of half dim wit tiny women looking for dada to give them tiny doodooers around licking their chops like wolves at me all day while hubby looks the another way. These girls seem to exude power most girls are incapable of attaining in western societies. This is very unlike in America where male and female bullies worm to the top of the human slop pandering to re re's, and can keep an audience with fourth rate slam poetry based on authority and clothing, these girls present the real greatness that lies beneath the shallow exteriors of western boy when pursued. This is one of my favourite documentaries and it required to be done as Christianity (up the anity) is everytime trying to assassinate the hero of another peoples belief based on here say, hate, and indoctrinated fear. Archeology has already proven the only folks doing the brutal savage killings for god's where and still are Christians. As an avid listener/follower of actual archeology I was shocked to learn archeologist view written history the same method I do, as a sham, only they have the proof. They search no proof of the things Christianity has written about another cultures. Human sacrifice and god worship is a Christian myth and creation...those in the know can see what Legba truly is, the goddess beauty...look at his symbol, it isn't a person, believing that god is human is Christian hubris, blasphemy that tries to tell we are god, while those who do the research see ancient folks worshiped and told thanks for giving your life to "the plants and animals" not a visage of the self.
