Yoga and White Supremacy Come to UC Irvine Cross Cultural Center

Normally, UC Irvine's Cross Cultural Center functions as a staging area for the Students for Justice in Palestine and the Muslim Student Union whenever they disrupt a pro-Israel event. I have literally seen them come marching out of the CCC with their Death to Apartheid banners and march back in when they have exhausted themselves. When I was teaching part time at UCI, I wrote letters to the CCC, the administration, and met with the head of the CCC to express my concerns all to no avail.

Now the CCC is swinging into action again in the name of social change. They are following   in the footsteps of other madcap universities and singling out white people as the collective Boogy Man. They have also accomplished the neat trick of promoting yoga as an Act of Resistance! The below posters require no further explanation.

Yoga as social justice advocacy?
