I would even go so far as to say that the woke and non-woke activism is only a thing in large urban areas and on college campuses and is only amplified because of social media.  Most people only care once it affects them directly - a Democrat who is a shrimper in Louisiana and a Republican who is a plumber in Nebraska just want to be left alone.

Yeah, but there are clusters of them in positions to affect society. Notably for this message board, the people working at WOTC, for one example.
And from there they affect our media and entertainment.

Trond:
Very interesting article about "woke" Hollywood:

--- Quote --- That’s the essence of what I find disturbing about some of the stuff on the left. Does this have anything to do with making life better for anyone, or is this just a game? Is this just about making you feel superior?

Bingo!

tenbones:
It's like we turned the corner on Islam after the Crusades!

This shit ain't going anywhere, son.

Pat:
I have no faith we've turned the corner on anything.

$25 billion -- with a B -- was donated to support virulently racist causes in the wake of the worst riots since Rodney King:

These all contributed more than a billion each:
Ford Foundation
Mackenzie Scott
JPMorgan Chase & Co. Contributions Program
W.K. Kellogg Foundation
Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation
Silicon Valley Community Foundation

Hate and bigotry is alive, well, and rich.

Trond:
Is this a sign?
