My guess is that anyone who’s read those two books respectively by McWhorter and Murray and found then influential is probably not a follower of “woke” ideology, whatever you even mean by it.
Yeah...I don't know what he means by it, or if he's getting what other people are saying, when they try to talk to him. Kinda frustrating, but it's also a bit adorable in a sense. Watching him fly off the handle in a sense, saying things as if he's being reasonable and as if people will in part agree with him because he sees a signal of possible agreement is funny to watch. It also makes movements like woke theology or ideology appear useful. I mean they're correct, people are out there saying and doing these things. To me it's a question of, ok, but is it really useful to treat these odd outliers as mainstream and powerful enough we ought to tear it all down? I don't think that's the way forward.

No. Don't be silly. I want you to rethink what you said, hoping in so doing, you realize how foolish it is and you delete it. If you really feel as you expressed, then that's great. Leave it. Its foolish enough to make my points, as I see it.
