Stay Safe

CEOs, bureaucrats, professors, journalists and even middle-class suburban moms all want to display their newfound wokeness by canceling other people. Those who don’t lead this movement, follow. People go along with whatever the woke mob chooses to care about and believes to be racist; it helps protect their jobs and reputations. It also preserves their self-image as good antiracists. On campus, students want to please their professors and peers as well as feel that they’re changing the world. Many of my classmates will furnish liberal rhetoric to get an A, so of course they do the same to win their audiences’ approval on Twitter or Instagram.
