Michigan professor claims yoga is racist and perpetuates white supremacy

Pat Gray Unleashed

Who has that much time on their hands to come up with this sort of nonsense? Professors, apparently.

Shreena Gandhi, a religious studies professor at Michigan State University claimed white Americans who practice yoga perpetuate colonialism and white supremacy by "misappropriation."

In her report titled "Yoga and the roots of Cultural Appropriation," she and her co-author Lillie Wolff assert,

This modern day trend of cultural appropriation of yoga is a continuation of white supremacy and colonialism, maintaining the pattern of white people consuming the stuff of culture that is convenient and portable, while ignoring the well-being and liberation of Indian people.

“While the (mis)appropriation of yoga may not be a life-threatening racism, it is a part of systemic racism nonetheless, and it is important to ask, what are the impetuses for this cultural ‘grabbing’?


Gandhi went as far as to say that colonists used yoga as a form of oppression by displaying the practice of yoga as superior to indigenous people and their way of life.

Will they ever be through with sucking the joy out of life?

On Monday's episode of "Pat Gray Unleashed," Pat discussed the utter madness taking place on college campuses at the behest of looney professors.
