i’m trying to find info on Obeah, and i come across this piece of shit.
and i wouldn’t have any issue with this half-assed-documentary if people knew what Obeah really was, and could see this for the propaganda and sensationalism it is. they have two idiots who know nothing about anything going to Jamaica to learn about Obeah and then they find one man who they paint as crazy (as you can hear with the music they play when he’s speaking). this is why so many people think of Santeria, Vodun, Obeah, etc. as “magic and sorcery” chaotic crazy shit…not complex epistemological systems of belief, knowledge, healing, and spirituality. which is why i have issues with the term “organized religion” in reference to Abrahamic religions. what does that make all other religions/belief systems? unorganized?
