Obama Calls Out Woke Culture

I agree

Mr Obama said that calling people out on social media did not bring about change, and that change was complex.

“Woke” is described as being alert to racial or social discrimination and injustice, along with being aware of what’s going on in the community.

Mr Obama told the audience: “I get a sense among certain young people on social media that the way of making change is to be as judgemental as possible about other people.

“If I tweet or hashtag about how you didn’t do something right or used the wrong verb, then I can sit back and feel pretty good about myself because ‘Man did you see how woke I was? I called you out!'”

“That’s enough,” he said. “If all you’re doing is casting stones, you are probably not going to get that far.”

Mr Obama added that “people who do really good stuff have flaws”.

    Should we mark the date?

    Um, sure. Mark the date. In pencil. One with a good eraser.

    Flashing VCR alert!

    Or as Jim Geraghty often said, everything Obama says has an expiration date.

    A blind squirrel gets a nut once in awhile. Same with Obama.
    But he’s in Chicago and what is he doing to help the teacher strike? Is he visiting the South side of Chicago to help stop the slaughter of innocents and minorities?

    Shocked and amazed!

    Well done Obama.

    Although certain libs around here are denial about danger of “woke culture” and liberal intersectional craziness.
