Quote
This covert form of race-baiting has become a central plank in shaping American partisan politics. Moving away from the language of Strom Thurmand and George Wallace, who overtly rallied their supporters against threats to the racial hierarchy, Republican candidates in the post-Civil Rights era stoke fear and anger over this threat via coded language.

Whether it’s a term like “woke,” or more traditional labels like “welfare queen,” “buck,” “thug,” “terror,” “illegals,” “socialists,” or “unAmerican,” the efficacy of a racial dog whistle is not in the fact that nobody knows whom you’re clearly talking about, it’s the plausible deniability that allows you to respond: “Who’s talking about Black people? I’m just talking about leftists. You’re the one making it about race.”

Now I’m curious who on this board had previously associated the term “woke” with race? That seems like a crappy dog whistle IYAM.

I always just thought it meant Democrat or young person who disagrees with me.

I associated it with race before the magas started using it in place of everything they disagree with.

Has Dax ever used the term “woke demographic”? That’s my measuring stick.

The way they're using buck here must be different than the only way I've seen buck used. I've only seen militant black men use that word, specifically bed buck, to describe another black man who bones white women.

I haven't heard that term since I was a kid.  It meant to be a term for a person who didn't listen to elders and did whatever he felt like doing.  Usually, the adj. young was associated with a buck as in "young buck".  Did not remember it being code for black men, though.

Quote
Woke (/?wo?k/ WOHK) is an adjective derived from African-American Vernacular English (AAVE) meaning "alert to racial prejudice and discrimination".[1][2] Beginning in the 2010s, it came to encompass a broader awareness of social inequalities such as sexism, and has also been used as shorthand for American Left ideas involving identity politics and social justice, such as the notion of white privilege and slavery reparations for African Americans.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Woke#:~:text=Woke%20(%2F%CB%88wo%CA%8Ak,to%20racial%20prejudice%20and%20discrimination%22.

It's a term rooted in pointing out racial discrimination and right wing people started applying it to everything else they disagree with.

Correct. Just like Critical Race Theory, they are masters at defanging terms among their peoples. It's like Judo.

I always appreciate the "sitting in the driver's seat wearing sunglasses selfie" twitter avatar though.  Really helps a guy understand where a person's coming from.
