So far, as I have seen or heard, there is no person in America that can claim being “Woke”,
Do you think WOKE is being able to cite a few Black references that demonstrate abuse towards Black people 100 years ago? Not ! In order to be “WOKE” you have to know all the facts of all races during the time cited. You cannot claim to be WOKE if you cannot tell all the facts relative to a discussion, not just the parts of the story you want to sensationalize. Being WOKE today is nothing but the retelling of another’s story. lacking truth because the story is only being told in part, usually resulting in a one-sided believable lie.
The thing most important when claiming to be “Woke is an understanding of what “woke” is? Woke is not blindly following the favored opinion. Woke is not taking somebody else’s word as valid. Woke IS doing the research necessary to ascertain the truth even if it not the favored opinion. Woke is being truthful to or of the topic regardless of the end result. And in today’s world WOKE is not just telling what Black people were suffering, but what suffering was of the other races.
To come up with an issue saying so many Black people were denied education without doing the research how many of the other races were facing similar issue means you are telling just enough of the story to play the race card. This is not WOKE, This is creating what may be a lie in furtherance of racism.
The use of the Washington Post database claiming the Black population in the United States as 13% is an example of this. Yes, the Black population is approximately 13% spread out with the numbers nation-wide. But, there are places in America that have no Black population at all so although the nation-wide Black population is approximately 13 percent, in many of our major cities the Black population ranges between 26 to 60 percent. America has been living the 13 percent lie since the database was created, when a layer deeper into the same database proves it a lie. WOKE is caring enough for the truth to do the research necessary to0 find the truth.
Based on the changes in numbers disclosed by correction of the 13 percent calculations a whole different picture exists. Why has nobody claiming to be WOKE said anything about the database calculations to anyone? Why hasn’t any politicians standing on their soap boxes discussed this information? This information is not difficult to discover, it just takes caring enough to seek the truth.
The reason why this information has not been disclosed is likely fear. Black people have been lied to for so many years that disclosure of this information will likely create riots throughout America in disbelief. Changes in these calculations does not say that Black people have not been subjected to suffering. But it does show Black people were not the only people to suffer the same issues. Black people have suffered greatly over the years because of the 13 percent lie. Don’t Black people deserve the truth? Are there any WOKE people that will stand up and tell Black people the truth?
If you cannot care enough to seek the truth and tell the truth, you are not WOKE, you are just another liar in furtherance of racism. Racism exists in America today because people acting in furtherance of racism for financial gain are allowed to continue profiting from it. There are a whole lot of people profiting from continued racism. In addition to race specific organizations that profit from racism, there are politicians that acquire office based on racial issues, Church acquires followers during times of racial conflict. Media goes nuts with racial incidents. And then, there is every anybody that can climb up on their soap box to preach their version of the lies while holding their hand out for donations.
Listen folks, racism is not really that hard to beat. Just become a little color-blind and treat everyone with equality and respect. If you want to do something for your Country, friends, and family . . . TELL THE TRUTH!
