Whites not allowed: Costa Rican healing retreat offers women of color a break from whites
quote:

A female-only retreat in Costa Rica is offering women of color the chance of a break from white people.

Andrea X, who created Women of Color Healing Retreat in Puerto Viejo, said she has 'completely cut out white people' from her life, saying 'they have caused enough damage'.

Guests enjoy yoga, meditation and vegan food in an environment free from what the founder calls micro-aggressions and passive-aggressiveness that exists in the US.



quote:

Andrea X said she decided one day to completely 'eliminate' white people from her personal life.

She said her life became 'much more breezy', and even said white people shouldn't be given passports due to how destructive they are.

'They are here,' she said, 'They are everywhere. I feel white people shouldn't even have passports.

'I have no tips for white people. Let us have our space.

'Let us have our room and hang out with other white people - you've done enough damage.'


quote:

Andrea X's retreat allows women to spend 10 days in her company, discussing the frustrations of life in the US.

Many, including Alexis Bromley from Omaha, Nebraska, used the trip to detox from what was described as constant racism in the US.

She said everyday judgement means she feels more at home in foreign countries than in her home state.

And with Donald Trump as President, the women said the issue is getting worse rather than better.

'It's hard in Nebraska, because it's a red state,' Ms Bromley told Vice.



quote:

The idea in Costa Rica is to effectively create a black nation, according to Andrea X, which would cater exclusively to people of color.

She said: 'It will be a community of just black people living here.'

Voluntary segregation. I see nothing wrong with it but just imagine the outrage if white women did this.

I have no problem with this. Private businesses should be allowed to discriminate and decide who their target customer is. Let the market decide whether that discrimination will hurt or help them.

It goes without saying at this point but I'll say it. If this were reversed, there would be international outcry.

They’re all a bunch of snowflakes. They think if you voted for Trump you’re automatically racist.

maybe she should go to Rwanda or Somalia. Omaha would probably start looking pretty good.

I have no problem with this. White folks go on a similar retreat every year. It’s called a beach vacation

quote:

My name is Satya X (SAH-TEE-YA) and three years ago I left New York City to experience Central America. Though I enjoyed the big Apple’s blistering pace, I was drained by racist ideology hovering over US culture, and I wanted a different experience. I had a magical experience traveling around Nicaragua and Costa Rica. While in Costa Rica, I volunteered at a majestic butterfly garden and consequently traded in my heels for sandals only to find that I was happier barefoot. I climbed mountains and rode my bike under the stars. I meditated more than I ever had in my entire life, and it was here in Costa Rica where my spiritual journey uncontrollably blossomed. I learned a different way of living, a more holistic and organic way of seeing the world. I learned that our lives are really our own and we can create any beauty we want. I love the afro “latino” towns of Costa Rica. It has become my home. When I was in the United States, I would always say to myself “I’m leaving the country for a while at some point.” I had not realized that those thoughts would later manifest into my future.
