A Race Insider® at Slate, hardly an outlet that allows free-thinking, woke up struggling to find a story to effectively spin this past weekend. He apparently missed out on the Aaron Rodgers takes. So instead of working harder, he lazily declared the word “woke” a racial slur for the fourth time since July.
To be clear, the term is racist only when used by a white person, a venomous species refusing to die. Slate explains:
“If you’re not black and started using ‘woke’ pejoratively sometime post-2018 or so (or worse, don’t know anything about the earlier iteration of the term), I think it’s fair to consider it a racial slur,” the insider tweeted.
“And it doesn’t mean I’m gonna do anything to you, or that anyone else will. But it doesn’t mean I won’t either.”
Previously, the same Slate creep suggested “woke” is a euphemism for the n-word:
“woke mob” and “young wokes” for when you’re too worried about the skill of your hands to say “nigger."

While it’s hard for people like this scrub to understand, not all stories are rooted in a black vs. white dynamic. Often, white people fill the qualifications of a woke: spreading faux outrage to gain a political or societal advantage with the in-crowd.
There is no shortage of woke whites. Here are just a few: Keith Olbermann, Stephen Colbert, Bernie Sanders, Max Kellerman, Mike Florio, all of CNN’s white anchors, Rachel Maddow, Adrian Wojnarowski, Robert De Niro.
Ultimately, Slate and the rest of them — ABC, New York Times, NPR — have found a purpose labeling terms that describe their ideologies as racist. Thus, these outlets demand that their limited number of readers use the offensive term “Karen.”
Karen, obviously, can’t be racist as white women are slowly overtaking white men as this country’s greatest threat. The many race analysts reminded us of that after last week’s off-year election.
