No More MIT Voo Doo
To The Faculty Newsletter:
As an MIT staff person I’m always extremely uncomfortable seeing issues of MIT’s student humor magazine Voo Doo on campus. The magazine's title is tacky at best, insulting no doubt, and dangerously close to hate speech.
Prof. DeGraff’s message (“’Voo Doo’ at MIT?”, MIT Faculty Newsletter, Vol. XXX No. 2) is important. MIT is not a community that denigrates or insults someone’s religion. That is not who we are. The editors of MIT’s humor magazine need to change its title.
