Not a fan of rap, hip hop or whatever the kids are calling it these days.
However I couldn't help noticing that this guy's mocking the woke songs are hitting #1 on iTunes.

That's something to take note of for sure. Is it turning a corner? Not sure, we'll see what happens next.

  If you have kids in public school, I can assure you woke is definitely NOT turning a corner.   There is some outrage shown on TV with parents ranting at board meetings, but I can tell you from where I am how that goes.  The uproar starts, some "conservative" runs their mouth about how we should not have CRT, MLK had a dream, yadda yadda yadda.  No one with a smidge of authority has the stones to call the shit what it is, anti white programming.  Add in the people who are for what they thing it is, are easily coerced into thinking it is something it is not and are led by Shitbirds who feel "Define CRT so we can address the concern" when it is nebulous as hell, authored by commies, and any critique of it is used to subtly (or in many places not so subtly) start tossing the R word for opposing it. 

    A corner might get turned, but I can honestly say the internet weirdos radicals have suddenly started to influence policy in local schools all over the country.  So time will tell.

I take it as a good sign that parents are getting pissed enough to show up and complain.

I found out about Tom Macdonald a few months ago. Really like his stuff. It's boilerplate anti-woke, but he puts a lot of energy into his songs and videos.

  Well, I have a friend who is a teacher.  He has had two mandatory "training sessions" that were all out CRT.  The people pushing the shit screech you must define it for them and say it is not in the classroom (yet every teacher is being beaten over the head with it).  So parents being pissed still means jack shit IMO.  This is just the school district where I live (which is a pretty red county) so I have no idea if real action is taking place beyond people complaining, and them summarily being labeled racists.  So we will see.
