Yoga is just yoga, unless you are white. Then it is cultural appropriation:
To truly honor yoga, writes Michigan State University professor Shreena Gandhi, white Americans should understand its history, acknowledge the cultural appropriation they engage in, and possibly reduce the cost of yoga classes for poor people, a group that often includes people of color and “recent immigrants, such as Indian women to whom this practice rightfully belongs.”
BTW, those with Indian ancestry are the wealthiest ethnic group in the USA. They bring in 70% more than whites per household. But I’m forgetting; statistics are racist. The narrative requires viewing Indians as put-upon victims deserving of special consideration.
Gandhi coauthored a piece entitled “Yoga and the Roots of Cultural Appropriation” with Lillie Wolff. Wolff describes herself as an “antiracist white Jewish organizer, facilitator and healer” who is “passionate about decolonizing and politicizing yoga.” “Decolonizing” means purging it of unclean whiteness.
It is OK for certain groups to stab and slash others apparently because the police are
RAAAAACIST, ah Transphobic. Well according to Trans-Thugs Lives Matter anyway
A vigil to honor Kenneth “Kiwi” Herring, a transgender woman killed by police in north St. Louis Wednesday, turned ugly tonight when an impatient driver refused to stop for protesters, hitting three of them.
Well, maybe the driver was not “impatient” as much as he was afraid of getting killed? Emphasis mine
Schron Jackson, a police spokeswoman, said the driver was taken into custody on a charge of felony fleeing.
Jackson emailed us,
Tonight, a group of protesters marched from the Transgender Memorial to the intersection of Manchester and Sarah were they blocked traffic in all directions. A vehicle approached, stopped, honked its horn and attempted to drive around the protesters.
The protesters surrounded the vehicle and began striking it with their hands and a flag pole. Several protesters also kicked and jumped on top of the vehicle. The driver of the vehicle (white male) proceeded to drive away when three protesters ( 2 white females and 1 white male) fell from the vehicle. The three protesters reported minor injuries, but refused medical attention on the scene.
Police attempted to stop driver of vehicle who initially refused to stop. He stopped about a block away from the incident and was taken into custody for felony fleeing. The incident was captured on video. The investigation is ongoing.
Sorry, but if a group of thugs, yes, even gender dysfunctional thugs, surround a car, then begin attacking it, the driver is going to fear for their life and to me has a right to protect themself. Basically, if you do not want to get run over then stay your ass out of the street, and do not surround and attack the car and the driver and or passengers. By the way CNN, such “protesters are not “peaceful”. Blocking traffic is not “peaceful”!
Now, as to Kiwi, or Kenneth, take your pick goes, let the investigation of the shooting conclude, then judge, but generally, if you attack police with a knife…….
Herring was shot to death by St. Louis police officers early Tuesday in north St. Louis. They say they received reports of a domestic dispute and arrived to find a 30-year-old man badly cut around the face, arms and torso. Police allege that Herring, also 30, was armed with a large kitchen knife and swung at officers — and that they then shot her.
Kristy Thompson, 28, was taken into police custody. Police say she was also involved in the attack on the 30-year-old male victim.
But the police response drew ire because they initially described the deceased as a 30-year-old man. Herring, friends and family say, identified as a woman.
Well, there you go. The real crime here is that the police called a man a man. How dare they? This is yet another example of how bat guano the Identity Obsession Syndrome insanity has gotten. The war on individualism rolls on. This is how the Left is trying to destroy this nation. Brainwash people into believing their “identity” be it religious, sexual, gender, racial is everything. Then pit these identities against anyone who opposes “social justice” AKA Marxism. Demonize a group or groups, in this case police, Whites, straight people, Conservatives, and “identity traitors” to create turmoil, incite increasingly violent acts, and so on. Then when those being attacked fight back, in any way, run to an eagerly sympathetic media, which will eagerly push your narrative and scream victimization. Repeat as needed until the greatest nation on earth is reduced to a third world Hell hole because Marxist Utopia!
How do you know if a hate crime is a hoax? A sure indication is that it perfectly fits into the alternate reality liberals feel self-righteous about living in, but would be preposterous in the real reality. Take for example evil racists spray-painting “Vote Trump” on a black church and setting it on fire. In Liberal Land, the KKK would be responsible. On planet Earth, you know it was a black guy like Andrew McClinton:
Mississippi Department of Public Safety spokesman Warren Strain says Andrew McClinton of Leland, Mississippi, who is African-American, is charged with first-degree arson of a place of worship.
McClinton was arrested Wednesday. Hopewell Missionary Baptist Church in Greenville, Mississippi, was burned and vandalized Nov. 1, a week before the presidential election.
And, sadly, the hate hoaxing is all too common
Hell these bottom feeders even hoax on airplanes now
But, again, I remind you that, to the Left, truth is absolutely eaningless
