By the way, "woke" is not a term for white people to use, it was appropriated like a heck of a lot of other stuff I see the self-proclaimed "rational thinkers" bandying about.
How black does one need to be to qualify to use the term "woke"?

I dont like groaning, i sometimes do it as a reaction. The other fora I participate in do not groan people for disagreements. So not in my online world.

@ato wishing to get a rise out of me - how is that different from bullying?

Im going to ignore this thread. Its a shame because there are a lot of decent people here. And some really annoying shits.
Because it would not be malicious or repetitive.

It's different because it looks like you're having a whinge and I think at this point it would be easier to give you a few pokes in the hope that you realise it's easier to ignore people instead of adding fuel to the fire. As you're now ignoring the thread I feel halfway vindicated.

I still see this as a social club as opposed to a formal debating platform. I'd do the same in a social setting.

I think what it is, you have complained about MC & myself multiple times in the thread, you have threatened to delete a couple of times in this thread & even threatened not to post anymore in this thread.

I clearly stared I had no intention of offending you & apologised if I had.
At this point I am finding the whole charade amusing.
I know you have no intention of offending anyone, neither do I. If there is anyone who gets frequently pooped on or tagged, it is us, usually.

You'd have to ask a black person that, I don't speak for them. I just know that I look like an insensitive ignoramus using it as a white person in 2021, even though I may have done so in the past before I became aware of the fact that it is not ok. Since I posess a reasonable vocabulary with plenty of other words to choose from and sufficient brain plasticity to learn new behaviours, I am more than happy to make a tiny change to my language if my previous use has been flagged as inappropriate by one or more people with a valid argument to that end.

Just coincidental.

I was thinking about how some people use the term "woke" in a derogatory sense, when it's actually a compliment.

Ha! I only saw that advice that white people may not use the term woke when you quoted it.
Whytf would black people need to become woke?! They knew racism was wrong all along. Some whites still haven't figured it out.

It will take at least a day to get through the meandering thread he started.

But you'd best apologise now as the question of how to delete your account has not aged well...

Re: Deleting My Account

"I dont like groaning..." Bully for you.

"I dont agree with your assessments and I pretty much disagree with everything you post, I dont feel like groaning you continually. Ususally I have you on ignore." Pls keep me on ignore and refrain from cluttering my personal EF space with your bad rep comments...

"Im going to ignore this thread. Its a shame because there are a lot of decent people here. And some really annoying shits." You could have done this without the drama...

@fmf and @mc by liking atos post it seems that you are encouraging people to aggravate me. You want me to become agitated. For amusement- or so I leave ?

He probably read through this thread a bit, realized it's just a bunch of people who argue back and forth and then decided that he wants no part of this place.

Re: Deleting My Account

If you plan on practicing what you preach, have you removed all other "culturally appropriated" phrases from your English vocabulary. I won't comment on any other languages you might speak.

What a trash article And why is she so racist, hunting white ppl and others using the word "woke"
So what would Dana do if she sees how some people of what she claims "her community" give permission to us the rest to use this term?

In fact, cant you see how this is one of those "ordered" articles? It's like a template . The whole narration and you can adapt it .. for feminists being outraged how men sit on a train.. to climate defenders ...
