^Yea, I hear Hmong people still practice BM, and yes, I also hear it's not necessary to sacrifice any human beings to have BM powers.
No, Hmong people do not practice BM. You don't know what you're talking about.
You probably don't even know what is BM in Hmong since you're a Christian.
You obviously think, like majority of uneducated Hmong Christians that the native Hmong traditional belief is the DEVIL'S WORK. You probably don't even know the origin of HMONG HEMP SKIRT!!! something that you like to wear.
Hmong people got it from someone, who many of you Hmong Christians consider the devil. He was never considered as the devil in the Hmong culture, because he has always known as the deity of the green bamboo forest that dead people have to cross and the deity of agriculture.
You people are, I don't want to say it, but......... full of jibberish.
Where did you hear it from?
Anyone who practices BM in Hmong is required to sacrifice a family member. This is well known in the past
by Hmong people. BM disappeared long long ago. It is no longer practice.
I know because my grandpa's first wife was killed by BM back in Laos, but not by a Hmong, but a Khmu.
My father stated that black magic disappeared long ago.
Never heard or seen BM practice by Hmong... most of the BM happened to Hmong are by the Khmu, in which
Hmong seek the Khmu to perform black magic on other Hmong.
You have no idea what you're saying.
Making and saying ignorant stuffs about Hmong make other people become ignorant about us, our native practices and our culture.
So, please stop it and quit stating stuffs that are not true. It's offensive and insulting to me and my culture and especially to my ancestors and people.
