MSU, Yoga and White Supremacy
Are you a white person?
Do you practice yoga?
Well if you answered yes to the above questions, then according to a Michigan State University professor you are contributing to a “system of power, privilege, and oppression”.
You heard that correctly.
Shreena Gandhi, a religious studies professor at Michigan State University wrote an article in which she stated:
To the so many white people who practice yoga, please don’t stop, but please do take a moment to look outside of yourself and understand how the history of yoga practice in the United States is intimately linked to some of the larger forces of white supremacy.
I am not going to bother to explain how she ties yoga and white supremacy together, I do not smoke weed so I am having trouble following her.
