  1. As a Black witch in the South, I have to say that was incredibly offensive, that entry. Everything, EVERYTHING, about the South was built on the bloody exploitation of Black (and now Brown) bodies. To exorcise us out of the magic… well. I’ll say this and leave it. There’s not a bit of so-called Southern magic performed, then or now, that doesn’t brush up against the unresting spirits of Black enslaved folk.

    1. The phrasing “not necessarily root magic” makes me very suspect. Like Asali says above, “there’s not a bit of so-called Southern magic performed, then or now, that doesn’t brush up against the unresting spirits of Black enslaved folk.” So why is the author calling it Southern heritage or “plantation magic” instead of acknowledging this?

    2. I think that last line of your comment perfectly sums up why it made me uncomfortable! Would you mind if I quoted you in my episode?
