During the recent Obama Foundation’s third annual summit in Chicago, “The Woken One” said that current Wokeniks are not being civil enough.
“One danger I see among young people, particularly on college campuses, is that I do get a sense among certain young people, and this is accelerated by social media, that the way of me making change is to be as judgmental as possible about other people and that’s enough. Like if I tweet or hashtag about how you didn’t do something right, or used the wrong verb, then I consider that I can feel pretty good about myself because, ‘man did you see how woke I was, I called you out.’ That is not activism, that is not bringing about change. If all you’re doing is casting stones, you are probably not going to get that far.”
Coming from the person who practically fueled and encouraged these antics to thrive during his administration? No, Mr. Obama: you own this mess.
