    "To be woke is to be beyond awake to every civil and humanitarian injustice, large or small. It is to be aware not just of “white privilege” — another legitimate concept that sounds smugly chic — but of whatever societal, economic, racial privilege you may enjoy, to feel just enough guilt about it and to engage with the world thusly.

    Woke” was added to Dictionary.com this year, along with cisgender (anyone not transgender), misgender (mistaking someone as male or female) and panromantic (someone attracted to all gender identities and orientations). Wokeness is the subject of countless essays and online forums. There are sites where you can buy “woke” merchandise, branded sweatpants and baseball caps. (Sartorially, the Black Panther movement this is not.)"

    apparently PC is worn-out so now it is "woke".

    Eli Whitney (December 8, 1765 – January 8, 1825) was an American inventor best known for inventing the cotton gin. This was one of the key inventions of the Industrial Revolution and shaped the economy of the Antebellum South.[1] Whitney's invention made upland short cotton into a profitable crop, which strengthened the economic foundation of slavery in the United States. Despite the social and economic impact of his invention, Whitney lost many profits in legal battles over patent infringement for the cotton gin. Thereafter, he turned his attention into securing contracts with the government in the manufacture of muskets for the newly formed United States Army. He continued making arms and inventing until his death in 1825.

    American hero. :salute:

    Lena Dunham — ultra-liberal product of St. Ann’s, Oberlin, and two downtown artist parents — was pilloried on social media for an interview she did with Amy Schumer. The two discussed how much they hated going to the Met Gala (side note: Is no one afraid of Anna Wintour anymore?), and Dunham especially took issue with her tablemate, New York Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr.
    “It was so amazing, because he looked at me and he determined I was not in the shape of a woman by his standards,” Dunham said. “He was like, ‘That’s a marshmallow. That’s a child. That’s a dog.’ I was like, ‘This should be called the Metropolitan Museum of Getting Rejected by Athletes.’ ”

    she seems to so want to be angry at someone or something that she looks for and finds offenses where none exist.

    I don't think he said anything to her? He saw her, didn't know who she was and non-verbally deemed her not worthy of attention, and resumed his texting/instagramming etc, which she was insulted by.
