Kerry Porter - “Hindu Facebook Justice” - Political Activist, Yoga Student & Teacher, Fellow member of a Facebook group with J.

Kerry Porter joins J to discuss some of the comment threads they have participated in together as mutual members of a Facebook group, and the implications they share with broader issues in our politics. They talk about the decolonizing of language and culture, listening to the voices of injustice, the marketplace of exploitation, appropriated yoga, and how we might begin to stop perpetuating oppressive power imbalances through reparatory justice instead of essentially telling people to “go eat a turd pie."
