…nd harmful thoughts. Woke has become an insult from right-wing people. But woke is no insult to me. Woke means to be conscious. And I choose to be conscious so that I can minimize the harm I cause myself and to others. I choose to be conscious and intentional with what I consume, believe, and do so that my actions and beliefs can reflect my values. I value antiracism. I value humanity, dignity, and equality of all animals, human or nonhuman.
Great personal analysis, from which you are extrapolating truths that apply to us all.
