    I know how I'd define the Woke but that isn't relevant. However, reading Arctish's statement more closely, he is not denying that the belief that "only white people can be racist" is something that he has heard, just that the way Derec has defined wokeness isn't what he's read as "defining" the Woke in "articles".
    he ended his QUESTION with a "?"

    Good for him.
    I agree. He did a great job. Very calm and professional.

    While this doesn't have to do with wokeness, it's a great example of good police behavior. Maybe it belongs in a Police Behaving Professionally thread so it's not used for political points.
    I'm not sure this doesn't have something to do with 'wokeness' as Trausti defines it. That's why I asked him for a definition.

    Most of the definitions I've seen talk about awareness of, and sensitivity to, matters of race, social justice, police interactions with civilians, and current events. By that definition, that cop is 'woke', and his 'wokeness' did the opposite of poisoning his interaction with the driver.
    That's an interesting point. Now that you mention it, I'd like to know that definition, too.

    I want to give that cop a hug right now. He had an angel's patience. I also want to give the woman a hug. It can't be easy being so terrified of the police. Group hug!

    We need a term for a black Karen.

    The truth is, it is capitalism that poisons everything.

    The police are an instrument to maintain the injustice that is capitalism.

    I believe ‘the woke’ are hypersensitive people that can’t handle the actions of other people, but outwardly seek them out. They often comb the Internet or use a woke news aggregator looking for news stories about small people that do dumb things so they themselves can fall into a state of blissful outrage.

    I might be wrong, but the OP seems to be a cry for help.

    Wokeness is what turned humans from apes to something a little more dignified.

    Unfortunately those opposed to wokeness lack dignity.

    They are less culturally evolved.

    At one time in the US most people, even the most educated, thought black people were somehow inferior.

    They of course did not understand that it was forced deprivation that kept them inferior.

    They did not teach them to read at critical times so they could say how inferior they were for never learning later in life.

    It was wokeness that ended slavery. Lincoln near his end was criticized for being too woke.

    There are always a few humans that lead the rest to moral growth.

    She was a racist cunt (repeatedly calling the cop a "Mexican who will never be white"). Any of the "buzzwords" she used out of the woke culture was just picked out to use as an insult towards the cop.

    That woman clearly needs to stop watching CNN and MSNBC.

    "Why are you harassing me ? Because you are a murderer." What a maroon.

    And this is a teacher ? I wonder what school she teaches at.

    ..
    When conservatives realize they cannot win democratically, they will not abandon conservatism. They will abandon democracy.

    Poverty exists not because we cannot feed the poor but because we can't satisfy the rich.
