Video: Vice documentary features ‘healing retreats’ for women of color who need ‘a break from white people’

On Friday, Vice published a video documentary that focuses on so-called “healing retreats” for “Women of Color” who apparently need to get away from white people.  According to the Daily Caller, the founder says white people “shouldn’t even have passports.”

According to the Daily Caller:

The retreat is called the “Women of Color Healing Retreat” and takes place in Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica. Vice News notes that it “specifically banned white people.”

The narrator notes that one attendee “needed a break–from white people.”

The founder, Andrea X, expressed the opinion that white people–but white Americans specifically, shouldn’t be allowed to have passports or travel.

“I have no tips for a white person,” X said. “My tip to white people is to let us have our space, let us have our room, and go hang out with other white people. We’re okay. You know, you’ve done enough damage.”

Naturally, Donald Trump’s election figures heavily in this.

According to Vice, five black-owned travel organizations say they’ve experienced “upticks in interest from clients eager to get out of the United States since the election of Donald Trump.”

Antonia Hylton said Vice followed a group of women to the Puerto Viejo retreat in Costa Rica, which emphasized yoga, vegan food, and political education seminars.  Additionally, Hylton said, the retreat specifically bans white people.

So much for tolerance and diversity.

Andrea X, the Daily Caller added, “decided one day to just eliminate white people from my personal life” due to “microaggressions” and “passive-aggressiveness.”

The result?  She claimed: “And ever since then, my life has been way more breezy.”

Exit question:  Weren’t we just told that yoga contributes to white supremacy?
