    A Seattle yoga instructor is teaching a class that is aimed at “Undoing Whiteness,” by showing white yoga students how white supremacy is present in their “body, mind and heart.”
    The class is taught by Laura Humpf, a yoga teacher of 15 years who claims that the class known as “Undoing Whiteness,” will teach students how to “unpack the harmful ways white supremacy is embedded” in the culture.

    More power to her. If she can find gullible students, why not monetize it? The American Way.

    Thought that Larry Bud Melman had passed away.

    Looks like Laura hasn't been humpfed in years.

    And her mentor,

    Pondering this quote:

    “White-bodied people need to understand that just because you aren’t a former KKK member doesn’t mean you aren’t upholding white supremacy when you aren’t learning to do it,” says williams, a Zen priest and founder of Center for Transformative Change in Berkeley, California, who frequently writes on racial justice.”

    And juxtaposing that with one of the ten principles of yoga:
    https://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Yoga/The_Ten_Principles_of_Yoga

    1. Truthfulness (satya)
      Live in the truth. Basically, be honest with yourself and others. Also no little lies of convenience. A lie is permissible only in well justified situations, for example, if you save with a lie the life of another human being. A Yogi is silent in doubt. Those who consistently lives in the truth radiate truth. Their fellow men trust them.
    Seems Humpf is violating the principle to live in the truth and radiate the truth.

    They should have listened to Rodney King:

    This is the same horseshit they’re peddling around school systems.

    It’s like Maoist reindoctrination camps.

    Is her dad Sylvester McMonkey McBean?

    Anyway, in a world where Donald Trump can get elected president, stuff like white-supremacy removing yoga seems pretty ho-hum and normal.

    White liberals act like abused spouses making excuses and blaming themselves.. for "acting white".. for being white.

    Now just defending yourself against charges of "being white" is considered an example of white supremacy and racism?

    WTF people. We should not have to think about skin color here. Your children should not be taught to feel guilty about being white.. or be taught to blame white people for everything.. like they have to do something special to make up for the sin of being white.

    Insisting that being white is a problem itself and a horrid example of racism.

    The yoga instructor is a horrible person and a racist.

    I hear you 1984, but you may find this interesting.
    Last year my 11 year old 5th grade white daughter, came home from school one day and told me she feels sorry for current day African Americans.
    I’m not going to get into how I answered that, but it was along the lines of, the last thing any of your fellow black students or friends wants you to do is feel bad for them.
    They are your equal in every way, shape and form... they do not want or need your sympathy.

    Trumpanzees are always making the case as to why whites are not superior when they open their mouths.

    When you're a pol you're no longer "some yahoo" but Republicans don't part with their "yahoo" ways so easily. Or Sharia ways in that case.

    Pretty sure yoga pants have led to the decline of the nuclear family, as well. :)

    A horrible person? Really?

    Misguided, sure. Silly and possibly dumb, okay.

    Horrible? Is she physically abusing anybody? Is she burning crosses or hanging people for using the wrong drinking fountain? Is she not paying her taxes? Is she killing baby ducks?

    Interesting...

    So an American mayor calling for the killing of people who don't think like him in Alabama is a non-event, not newsworthy. Just MSM mind-control.

    But this yoga instructor's misguided class offering is big time news. End of days. Must-see reporting.

    Riiiiiight. [roll]

    She is using her position of power as a yogi, which is supposed to be a calming and peaceful activity, to exercise mind control over her students. That's pretty bad. Adults should not have to be told to not be racist, sexist or homophobic, but apparently some do. But there is a time and a place for that. A yoga session seems like an inappropriate place.

    Her story that “I was seeing white people show up in yoga spaces in racist ways,” sounds like a real stretch (no pun intended). Doubtful that this was a pervasive problem, and probably a one time event. To make it a whole thing about undoing whiteness screams that she craves attention or fame. This has to be one of the stupidest things I have read about in some time. "Unpack their harmful ways." That's rich. How exactly will she achieve that.

    Or quite possibly all yahoos should be ridiculed for what they are. But surely great centrists such as yourself already know that...
