Yoga Class Cancelled in Ottawa Due to Cultural Appropriation

I've been trying for ten minutes.  There is nothing I can write that would make this any funnier.

UPDATE:  Somebody else managed it.

Apparently if a white person ever does an activity that originated from a non-white group, it's 'cultural appropriation' which is bad, bad, bad and on par with colonization and slavery. Note that 'appropriation' only works one-way though - it's perfectly fine for say Asians to play and enjoy classical music from Europe but it's horribly bad and practically cultural genocide if a white person should play and enjoy classical Chinese opera. Your blood apparently determines which forms of culture you're allowed to be involved in.
