Oh, Anon, you’re no bother to me - in fact, you’re actually a good example of what it means to be “woke”:
On a basic level, “woke” is just shorthand for having a social consciousness and being aware of societal injustices and oppressive forces, or simply being engaged and involved in a discussion and having a willingness to learn (which you are by sending me this message). When I referred to Cameron as having his “woke status pending”, I was mainly referring to that recent twitter chat he had with fans during which he asked them to answer the following question: “What is one modern-day injustice? Who do we oppress and defile without reflection?” and then proceeded to question a response that said “anyone who is not white, a man, or rich” by saying that the statement was “reductionist”.
Now of course, that was only one response and some of his other responses were thoughtful but overall, the whole idea of posing a question like he did would be to listen to the feedback from the audience as opposed to standing on the defensive when they say something truthful (because, my my was that person’s answer truthful). Oh, and he also wrote a long post about how messed up the foundation of American society is and some other sentiments along those lines (looks like he deleted this tweet too??), but when it all boils down, he’s just a white dude and I wish he would pay more attention to what he’s saying and if he’s trying to gain a deeper sense of social consciousness - which I do honestly think he’s trying to do and I encourage that - he should listen more and pay attention to how he may be contributing to the very problem that he’s trying to understand.
Oh wait - and today he also posted a picture of two men laughing in response to a drawing that a fan tweeted to him, which came across as incredibly insensitive and I still don’t quite know how to feel about that. Did he mean to insult them? Is he seriously laughing at their artwork that they drew for him? I just don’t know, Anon, but that goes along with woke-ness - being aware of your actions and how they can build someone up or put them down.
UPDATE: He addressed the fanart tweet, but I still think he needs to sit down for a minute and just evaluate his Twitter choices, because they’re getting sloppier by the minute.
