    HAUNTED AMERICA TOURS BY MAMBO SALLIE ANN GLASSMAN...:injured:

    As a Vodou Manbo, Sallie Ann Glassman has led her Haunted Bywater neighborhood in community Vodoun rituals to fight crime and to ask for protection from hurricanes.

    Hurricane Protection Ritual

    Sallie Ann Glassman has lived in New Orleans for over 25 years and owns the Voodoo shop, Island of Salvation Botanica in the Bywater Neighborhood. She is a Vodou Manbo, or priestess, and received her initiation in Haiti.

    But at this time of year, when public officials hold conferences about the potential threat of hurricanes and local news media raise the issues in print and on TV, getting hit by a hurrican is just not something Manbo Sallie Ann will spend a lot of time being concerned about.

    "I always just give it up to Danto and try not to worry about it," she said. "Worry is a pretty useless emotion. This will be the year, or it won't. It's up to her."

    This is the Seventh Year that the Hurricane Protection Ceremony was performed In the center of the Street at her Piety Street botanica in the heart of the New Orleans Bywater.

    So far, the Vodou, the Manbo, or something, has worked. The city has never taken a direct hit from a category 4 or 5 hurricane.

    This is an awsome article brotha. Most people are unaware of the fact that most if not all of the wrought iron balconies in the french quarter were made by Haitian blacksmiths.

    But Brother Sek, didn't you notice that this woman is white - and her name sounds rather, ah, semitic?(smile!)

    Plus, HAUNTED AMERICA TOURS??? Isn't that a perpetuation of the stereotypes of ATR we rail against??? Plus(as if that is not enough), she is using the religion to ruthlessly capitalize on the stereotype... Why can't these white people develop their own religions, and just leave us, and our thangs alone???

    But brother, this goes back to what I said in that African americns back to africa thread... Our culture puts millions,if not billions of dollars, into these folks pockets... This is an example of what I was talking about...

    Peace!

    To tell you the truth, I was wondering about that(if she was white), I was trying to see if I could click on a close up shot of her. Perhaps I made the mistake of giving them the benefit of the doubt.

    My bad:bawling:

    it seems as though the white people always jump to the front and find a way to make money.
    every time i am aware of a white person in ATR they are about the cash.

    Poetic, it is not a color thing, it is a culture thing...

    HAUNTED AMERICA TOURS???

    sister, I don't give a **** if she was COAL BLACK and from the KONGO, it does not give her the right to be using our ancestral religions in such a distasteful way... Do you believe, sister, that the religion of VODUN is about Haunted houses??? That is carnivalizing African traditional religion...

    Peace!
