Good Wokester Article

And talking about the NYTimes, folks, do read this article (sorry, the app doesn’t let me link):

The title sounds like garbage but the article is actually pretty good. For those who don’t subscribe, the author is a black writer who’s trying to get his book published. But the editors have cancelled the pre-publication meeting because they need to gather and talk about their white guilt. In the meantime, white acquaintances are inundating him with tearful emails and texts asking his forgiveness for the existence of racism. And all the guy wants is to be left alone and get his book out.

There’s also a lot of dumb histrionics in the article about how he’s afraid he’ll be murdered for being black, etc etc. But the sad irony of the situation is that without this performance he wouldn’t get published in the New York Times.

He also offers a helpful suggestion for what the well-meaning white wokies can do:

[Send] texts: To your relatives and loved ones telling them you will not be visiting them or answering phone calls until they take significant action in supporting black lives either through protest or financial contributions.

That sounds like a very attractive idea. Also, they should stop selling wokester emails to anybody insufficiently woke at work and stop posting on social media until everybody on the planet repents and join them.

  1. At first, I believed you found it ” a helpful suggestion” and got frightened. 🙂

    Rod Dreher has a good writing style and some interesting analysis, but sometimes he seems to exaggerate too much. Do you think those 2 stories may be true? If yes, it is completely dystopian.

    The stories are from this post:


    A reader who is a prominent Washingtonian … wrote this morning to say that he and a number of people he know are leaving the city for good in the wake of this past week’s violence.

    The city has been taken over by extremists who worship conformity and violence. They don’t care how many people they hurt. This is a religious cult. All that matters to them is race theology.

    A friend from my neighborhood just got screamed by a high school girl on his street. He’s known her since she was born. He likes her parents. They’ve never had a single problem. Now the girl has decided my friend isn’t sufficiently supportive of Black Lives Matter. So as he paused at a Stop sign this morning at the end of his block, she approached his window and yelled “F*ck you!” right in his face.

    There’s a lot of that going on here. Among the many ironies: what they’re doing now is racist. It guarantees a resurgence of white racism, and of intentional segregation.


    I had impending doom that my career as an academic physician would soon be over (despite having been given 7 teaching awards through the years by the student body) when I was severely chastised by the “diversity dean” that I was not using pronouns correctly. Very soon thereafter, a patient of mine discussed with me that the public school where her 7 year old 2nd grade son was enrolled had actually proceeded with gender transition psychological therapy after diagnosing him with rapid gender dysphoria. They had told neither parent a word – and they found out about it only after 6 months of counseling had already occurred. They had to be notified because the “doctor” had decided the child needed intense hormone therapy. When asked what I thought – I informed her gently that they were setting their family up for a life of tears. She refused the therapy – and the “doctor” turned me in to the “diversity dean” at the university. She decided she had had enough of me – and began making my life miserable.



    1. I think the stories are true but you’ve got to remember that the absolute majority of people lives complete normal happy lives, looking at this freakdom from a distance and perceiving it as completely stupid and ridiculous.

      As for the story about the 7-yo, I’m sure it’s true but consider what kind of family this is and what kind of mom this is that she hasn’t noticed something like this for 6 MONTHS! There’s no contact here between mother and child. Something is so badly wrong that it’s not surprising the kid is acting out in extreme ways. If a child keeps such a major secret for such a long time at this age, it means the kid has zero trust in mom. Coupled with the child’s dislike for his or her genitals, I think we can all make a pretty good guess as to what is really going on.
