SJW`s To The Rescue: Americans Who Practice Yoga Are Contributing To White Supremacy And Promote The “Yoga Industrial Complex”
Social Justice Warriors are on the frontlines fighting racism and social injustice wherever it rears it`s ugly head. The latest outrages have been identified and the lines have been drawn. What`s the latest outrages you ask? It`s yoga.
Today`s headline comes from Shreena Gandhi, a religious studies professor at Michigan State, and Lillie Wolff, a self-described anti-racist white Jewish organizer, facilitator, and healer. The two co-authored an article titled Yoga and the Roots of Cultural Appropriation which argues that Americans who practice yoga are contributing to white supremacy and promote the “yoga industrial complex.”
I`ve always been told that America is a melting pot, a great blending of cultures, however the two claim that White Americans should learn yoga’s history, (and) acknowledge the cultural appropriation they engage in. One has to wonder how we`d survive if these social justice warriors weren`t here to constantly point out everything white people do that is racist in society.
