WTF!?! Toronto Star Says Use Of “Voodoo” As In “Voodoo Economics” Is Racist

Is ‘voodoo economics’ a derogatory, racist term?: Public Editor

In considering all of this, the co-chairs of the newsroom style committee, the arbitrator of language and usage in the Star, have concluded that “voodoo economics” is a term best avoided in the Star in future. I agree that aiming to avoid its use is the right course now that we have been made aware that it causes offence.


When did Voodoo become a race?
