Yoga är rasism enligt veckans töntar

Det är nästan för töntigt för att vara sant när två tokar hävdar att yoga är rasism.

”Michigan State University religious studies professor Shreena Gandhi and self-described “anti-racist white Jewish organiser, facilitator and healer” Lillie Wolff co-authored the piece titled Yoga And The Roots Of Cultural Appropriation.

 

The pair argued “the explosion of yoga studios, yoga video, apps, yoga pants and other yoga swag over the last two decades is evidence” of the “(mis)appropriation of yoga” that “is part of systemic racism” built on “the labour of black people and people of the global south”.

 

“We would argue one of the goals of white supremacy is to buffer white people from the pain that comes from the process of exchanging cultural grounding for the unearned power and privilege of whiteness,” they wrote.”
