You can never be woke enough

This story is ridiculous. I feel so bad for Lin Manuel Miranda. Having to kowtow to a group of people that will never be satisfied.

A Fox News article about a New York Post column and Jimmy breathlessly rushes here to repost it. LOL

Not my fault you chose to consume and post things from an utterly idiotic media diet. Imagine lefties posting Huffington Post articles about Daily Kos opinion pieces lmao

it's never too late, goofy. follow the leader, join the exodus.

what are your thoughts on that black family in Atlanta, who were trying to accommodate the protesters' presence by detouring and u-turning their way home, only to have the diverse mob of all-knowing thug children shoot into the car and kill an 8-year-old?

this is the predictable, lawless manifestation of the 'activism' you guys support.

1 half will go to work daily, and account for the imperfections of their society with humility.

the other half will tweet and opine, conceptualize and endlessly tinker - building New World Man.

Yeah it really puts that story about a black guy having his life ruined by a racist Alabama cop for having some medicinal marijuana in his car in perspective.

This over-wokeness is the real tragedy we should spend our efforts dissecting and discussing ad infinitum.

If any group, anywhere, ever over-reacts to this country's pervasive systematic racial oppression going back 100s of years - that's intolerable.

Re: I'm left but the new left going way too far out

You guys still think Ferguson was justified, despite all the evidence. Your perspective is flawed by a desire to see things as they aren't.

And people can overreact all they want. That overreaction is understood for what it is. The data isn't on your side. Has the population at large been hoodwinked into believing something that isn't true about certain communities? Craft another manifesto on the history of race in this country. Anecdotally, show us again how it persists to this day, while you dismiss any anecdotal basis for belief that challenges your conclusions. Use it to exculpate 101 shootings and 14 deaths in Chicago over Father's Day weekend. Distract the entire world from the real threat to black life. Attribute a racist motive to Derek Chauvin's actions, even though that's basically impossible to establish without a confession or some serious circumstantial evidence/ documented history of racial animus on his part. The left has no qualms assigning identical motivation to every police action. And because some jackass said he wanted to slaughter people, we are to conclude that 800,000 men and women of every conceivable race act in monolithic lockstep to terrorize populations they were meant to protect and serve. That's some serious organization and central planning, and it's literal insanity.

How to be a successful black man, woman or child has been demonstrated millions of times in this country, despite all the impediment. Follow the example set.
