Seattle yoga teacher’s ‘Undoing Whiteness’ class is White Savior Syndrome on steroids

Seattle Times-

Though advertised to people of color, the class did not deny entry based on race. There’s a distinction between asking and demanding.

In 2015, Humpf offered her Rainier Beach yoga studio once a week to POC Yoga, a people-of-color-based yoga session that “respectfully asked white friends, allies and partners not to attend,” without expressly barring entry to anyone.

“Business can’t exclude customers based on protected characteristics. Businesses can and do market their services to particular groups they are trying to attract as customers,” said Attorney General Bob Ferguson, citing as examples women’s-only defense classes and swim classes designed for people with mobility impairments. He stressed that businesses can’t refuse patrons based on race or ethnicity.

  1. Linda Burnett, 23, a resident of Seattle, was visiting her
    in-laws and while there went to a nearby supermarket to pick up some
    groceries. Later, her husband noticed her sitting in her car in the
    driveway with the car running and the windows rolled up. Her
    eyes closed with both hands behind the back of her head. He became
    concerned aware now open and she looked very strange. He asked her if she was
    okay; Linda replied that she had been shot in the back of the head and
    had been holding her brains in for over an hour (at least it seemed
    that way to her, it actually had been 15 minutes, she blamed the
    inability to tell time on her head injury).
    The husband called the paramedics, who broke into the car because
    the doors were locked and Linda refused to remove her hands from her
    head.
    When they finally got in, they found that Linda had a wad of bread
    dough on the back of her head. From the back seat a Pillsbury biscuit
    canister had exploded from the heat, making a loud noise that sounded
    like a gunshot, and the wad of dough hit her in the back of her head.
    When she reached back to find out what it was, she felt the dough and
    thought it was her brains. She initially passed out, but quickly
    recovered.
    Linda is blonde, a Democrat, and an Biden supporter; but that
    could all be a coincidence.

    The defective biscuit canister was analyzed and it was determined to
    be Trump’s fault.

  4. Yoga is right up there on their list of things they want to do, right next to swimming and behaving in restaurants.

  5. I’m sure there’s a line out the door of white liberal self hating women clamoring to get in so they can flagellate themselves among the wise latinas and angry black women.

  6. Whites don’t give a shit. If we can’t get a job at your “woke” company, we will start a better one and run you out of business.
    KISS muh white ass all y’all.
