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 MyNorthWest.com.
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.
I guess the fact that black criminality, statistically speaking, is a far greater problem than white criminality flew right over her dense head.
KIRO employee Dori Monson was not satisfied with Wang’s excuse. He argued that a class for only white people would be “vilified”:
It would be a lead story on national news. It would be blared across all the websites about the racist yoga class in Seattle. And the fact is, this yoga class is every bit as racist as a bunch of white people who say they don’t want to be around somebody of color. That’s why I wouldn’t want to attend either one of those classes … The fact is, they are both racist.
Exactly. Unfortunately, leftist radicals see things differently, as these disturbing comments clearly demonstrated:
 Oh … so because a thug like Mike Brown got rightfully gunned down for resisting arrest, and because the “queer” class founders expressed themselves in a “gentle” manner, I guess we should all just ignore the class’s glaring racism.

Ultimately, as someone who believes in a private business’s right to be selective about its clientele, I got no real problem with this class, per se. My concern lies with the double standard, as Opposing Views commenter Matt Burns brilliantly explained:
Speaking of which, perhaps it’s time for white people for to create their own “White People Month” … hmm?
