Voodoo iis a religion of the Haitian people that played a major role in their victorious slave revolution against their French masters.  This revolution so shocked the US slave masters and the thoroughly racist bourgeoisie of the United States that they tried to denigrate it as part of their ideological innoculation against a slave revolujtion in the United States.

That denigration was so thorough that even progressives, writing for fellow progressives on a lMarxist list, use it as a term of disparagement.

I think "voodoo" shouldn't be used this way.
