University bans yoga for promoting western colonialism



If you see a woman in tights smile as she leans back and spreads her legs, what's the first thing that comes to your mind?

Western colonialism, right?

Of course!

That's why it's understandable that the University of Ottowa has ended yoga classes there.

...yoga comes from India, once a British colony. And now, at one Canadian university, a yoga class designed to include disabled students has been canceled after concerns the practice was taken from a culture that “experienced oppression, cultural genocide and diasporas due to colonialism and western supremacy,” according to the group that once sponsored it.

It's like six degrees of separation! Yoga comes from India. India was once a British colony. Therefore, yoga=colonialism!

It's like saying (1) Democratic Senate Majority Leader Robert Byrd was a Klansman. (2) Robert Byrd used to get his hair cut in Charleston. (3) His barber in Charleston drinks Coca-Cola. Therefore, Coca-Cola=racism.

When you start with racism, you can get to anything or anyone within six jumps. Except with Democrats, of course, you don't usually need six jumps... or more than one. Just ask former President Bill Clinton about his racist mentor, J. William Fulbright, or President Obama about Jeramiah Wright.

But back to yoga:

“I think that our centre agreed … that while yoga is a really great idea, accessible and great for students, that there are cultural issues of implication involved in the practice,” the response read. “I have heard from a couple students and volunteers that feel uncomfortable with how we are doing yoga while we claim to be inclusive at the same time.”

Uh, oh, someone was uncomfortable! We don't even know why they were uncomfortable, just that they were! Maybe they were stuck in a downward dog for too long!

So then the yoga instructor volunteered to take the yoga out of it, and just do stretching exercises.

“I’m totally up for making it a simple stretching class for people with disabilities,” she wrote. “… There wouldn’t need to be any change to the content of the courses because I don’t use the posture names and don’t refer to yogic mysticism. Now that I am aware that this is a sensitivity, I can just leave all yoga-ness out.”

But stretching exercises were found to be promoting colonial expansion too:

Yet, in the end, it didn’t happen.

“The higher-ups at the student federation got involved, finally we got an e-mail routed through the student federation basically saying they couldn’t get a French name and nobody wants to do it, so we’re going to cancel it for now,”

When are universities going to stop promoting cultural genocide? The arrogant, imperial behavior of these institutions offend me. They need to stop offering exercise classes and spend more time writing self-criticisms, like the President of Brown University did.

Brown U. admits to fomenting racial hatred against blacks, offers reparations


First there was slavery. Then there was Jim Crow. Now that we finally thought we've got that all behind us, we have to deal with the inherent racism in ultra-liberal Ivy League schools. I am personally ashamed to say that Harvard Law School's logo, of three bushels of wheat, is the ultimate symbol of racism against blacks. And Yale University isn't much better. They don't have enough black psychiatrists, white students don't have to take Black Studies classes, and dormitory administrators are called "masters", undoubtedly a clear throwback to the days when Yale had large plantations in New Haven filled with slaves forced to pick cotton.
