Well. Apparently some people have no ideas, so have to steal other people's
So, three years ago I did a workshop on hoodoo and the Southern folk magic roots of Feri for some Feri initiates; notes were taken and distributed to other initiates. I am not absolutely certain that he has a copy of them, but it seems likely. In any case, he's well aware that I did that workshop and that the line I'm part of emphasizes that stuff because 1) we discussed it, and 2) it's in the goddamn Wikipedia article.
Recently, he wrote this article. "Hoodoo and the Roots of Feri." No mention of me or lupino , and certainly no acknowledgment of me as a source. Although...frankly, I would like to think that he can't have cribbed from my notes because if he had the article would be a lot better. Honestly, it sucks. He doesn't know what the fuck he's talking about, and can't even construct a clear line of reasoning as to why hoodoo relates to Feri...mainly because he appears to be completely ignorant of the history and cultural forces involved, but he also fails to mention aspects of Feri history he should certainly know. He refers people to Cat Yronwode like that's going to help. She has done some good research but she did not grow up here and she is not the end-all, be-all of hoodoo. She is just a popularizer of same, making a living off said popularity. Rather like himself. Except at least hoodoo has a tradition of charging money...for services rendered, not for teaching. In any case Cat doesn't know any more about Feri than he apparently knows about hoodoo.
