Everybody’s Invited To Class In Seattle; EXCEPT White People

By  on Saturday, October 17, 2015

 Five self-described “queer” Seattle residents started a class at the Rainier Beach Yoga studio in early October that caters to every type of human being in existence, except of course for white people, reported
According to an email blast received by KIRO radio station employee Dori Monson, “Yoga For People Of Color” is only for gay folks, as well as those who identify as “African American/black/of the African Diaspora, Asian, South Asian, West Asian/Arab/Middle Eastern, Pacific Islander, First Nations/Alaskan Native/Native American/Indigenous, Chican/Latin, or Multiracial/Mixed-Race.”
Here’s the kicker. The email ended with the following line: “White friends, allies and partners are respectfully asked not to attend.”

One of the class’s co-founders, Teresa Wang, excused this blatant racism on the basis that “people of color” need a “safe space” to perform yoga, because apparently, performing yoga among white people puts one at risk of being stabbed and killed.
