In “kinda-racist-shit-white-people-do-that-they-claim-isn’t-racist” news, a yoga studio decided to host the most unusual class.

A ghetto fabulous yoga session.

No, they really did. According to Jezebel:

Last week, the studio decided to mix it up and invite patrons to “come dressed in your favorite ghetto fabulous outfit, snap-back caps, corn rows, heavy lip liner or whatever you can dream up.” For inspiration, they literally linked to a “How to Be Ghetto Fabulous” article from WikiHow, because no one at Power of Your Om Yoga Studio has ever met a black person in real life.

There was also a du-rag giveaway. A DU-RAG GIVEAWAY?! I just cannot…

This was the description from the yoga studio’s Facebook page:

“‘Each month we will be featuring a new funky class…this month let’s get ghetto fabulous! You sport the white tank, roll up one leg of your tight black pants, and we’ll make sure to have a rockin’ playlist bring the bling, lip liner and bandanas….seriously. This class has no extra charge. Just a chance to do something a little whacky.'”

And the eye-rolling worthy photos are sure to make you cringe, scoff, and simply shake your head at the ignorance and yes, stupidity.

I thought we retired the use of “ghetto” to describe facets of black culture (usually false) like hairstyles, clothes and overexaggerated hip-hop poses that no one uses but yogis trying to emulate what they think is, well, “ghetto.”

Guess I was wrong.

Note: The studio later apologized for the offensive class.
