They always feel they know what we're thinking.

She admitted at the end of the article that she was projecting the entire time.

Black Person i Yoga Class Causes Profound Moral Crisis


Black Person in Yoga Class Causes Profound Moral Crisis


Now, don't go getting the wrong idea here. Jen Caron is not some crude racist. 

A few weeks ago, as I settled into an exceptionally crowded midday class, a young, fairly heavy black woman put her mat down directly behind mine. It appeared she had never set foot in a yoga studio—she was glancing around anxiously, adjusting her clothes, looking wide-eyed and nervous.


Within the first few minutes of gentle warm-up stretches, I saw the fear in her eyes snowball, turning into panic and then despair. Before we made it into our first downward dog, she had crouched down on her elbows and knees, head lowered close to the ground, trapped and vulnerable. She stayed there, staring, for the rest of the class.



im sorry, this would of been hilarious regardless of race, but continue i know i wasnt sh*t before i came into this thread

That's like me saying I went to a white restaurant and all eyes were on me like I didn't deserve to be there, how dare they? I write a whole fuccin essay on it then slip in "oh I'm probably projecting" at the end after I've psychoanalyzed the whole thing. And after she talks about "projecting ", she writes

"The question is, of course, so much bigger than yoga—it’s a question of enormous systemic failure. But just the same, I want to know—how can we practice yoga in good conscience, when mere mindfulness is not enough? How do we create a space that is accessible not just to everybody, but to every body? And while I recognize that there is an element of spectatorship to my experience in this instance, it is precisely this feeling of not being able to engage, not knowing how to engage, that mitigates the hope for change."

Mere mindfulness isn't enough? Wtf? The black woman didn't even say shiit to her!
