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.
