WOKE-ISM: The Trendy New Cultural division that's all the rage!

The right wing media loves to divide their readers about liberal notions apparently to scare their readers into hating all things liberal, progressive, or Democrat.  They have taken a simple word and convoluted it to many meanings to generate confusion, division and just another boogieman.  Once about diversity and tolerance, it's now cluttered with Critical Race Theory, gender, sexual orientation and What we might call WOKEcraft--blaming everything Republicans disagree with into a one-size-fits-all enemy--mostly on podcasts found on the web discussing the whole vocabulary of topics for authors and activists.

So they're throwing the word around about anything divisive against the 'left.' Some of its gobbledygook but the discussion rages in corporations and universities and among social activists. Some people can be single minded about achieving numerical diversity as an organization's objective than actually hiring qualified people to do the work and they're getting pushback for taking it way too far.  Lot's of diversity people get angry at the mention of the word 'woke-ism.'

 Here's How Merriam Webster Dictionary defines Woke-ism:

What to Know. Woke is now defined in this dictionary as "aware of and actively attentive to important facts and issues (especially issues of racial and social justice)," and identified as U.S. slang. It originated in African American English and gained more widespread use beginning in 2014 as part of the Black Lives Matter movement.

The Woke Movement on College Campuses

Something is going wrong on many college campuses in the last few years. Rates of anxiety, depression, and suicide are rising. Speakers are shouted down. Students and professors say they are walking on eggshells and afraid to speak honestly. How did this happen?  A revealing book on the subject of a certain narrowmindedness has creeped into higher education, as seen by the Me Too movement, racial interests, and a fear of risk taking...that's made us preoccupied with safety above knowledge.
