5. "tru, but ..."
In response to In response to 4



I was under the impression that Lucumi was generally understood as a more unadulterated version of Ifa, and Santeria was a more hybrid creation focusing on the foundations of Ifa, but with more synchronization w/ Catholic saints and rituals.

Also, I'd love to know more about when Santeria became "introduced" into this country? I've heard two things: 1. that puerto Ricans brought it straight from the island; 2. that Cubans introduced it in its current form to Puerto Ricans during a large migration here ...

If anyone is interested in the Music of the religion, I can hook you up with many recordings. I play the bata drums (still studying) and am getting more involved in the community around where I live.

love and respect,

EFF A FAKE QUOTE! I DEAL WITH THE REAL (so if its artificail let it be ...) (c) Blac... awww, you know who

A mob is not autonomous: it executes the real will of the people who rule the state. The slaughter in Birmingham Alabama, for example, was not, merely, the action of a mob. That blood is on the hands of the state of Alabama: which sent those mobs into the streets to execute the will of the State ...

... A mob cannot afford to doubt: that the Jews killed Christ or that n*ggers want to rape their sisters or that anyone who fails to make it in the land of the free and the home of the brave deserves to be wretched. But these ideas don't come from the mob. They come from the state, which creates and manipulates the mob. The idea of a black person as property, for example, does not com from the mob. It is not a spontaneous idea. It does not come from the people, who knew better, who thought nothing of inter-marriage until they were penalized for it: this idea comes from the architects of the American State. These architects decided that the concept of Property was more important -- more real -- than the possibilities of the human being. (c) James Baldwin.
