what is "woke"? is everyone talking/arguing about the same thing? what is "woke" to you?
Calling out and no longer using the stereotypes he's comfortable with seems to be his definition of "woke capitalism".

You're a Christian, right? If so, I think the only thing we should care about really is if a company is promoting sinful/immoral behavior. When companies cross that line, we should be willing to stop supporting them in my opinion. I don't think that means we have to openly protest them, etc.... Just simply stop buying their stuff or using their services.

Complaining on a message board about their advertising, but then saying you'll buy their product anyway seems.......unproductive?
Agreed...I don't lose sleep over it. We are all immoral and all have bad behavior. I'm just making an argument that when we become woke one way we ignore the other way. It's a tendency we need to fight against. I totally agree with the modern mantra that all people matter. I just want to make sure ALL, truly includes ALL.

I think you are mostly correct, however I would caution anyone participating in this way to examine every company and everyone they do business with every day of your life and not just start to start to pay attention when the sinful/immoral behavior isn't in line with your own political thinking.

many time we are only willing to examine in faith things that don't line up with our Politics and I think that is extremely Un-Christian, hypocritical and unmoral to do.

Agreed. I don't actively go looking for offenses, but there are definitely some companies or individuals that I choose to not support based on their treatment of employees, vendors, etc... If there are better alternatives, I just choose to support those instead.

Child slavery? The NBA that fires people for saying "cotton picking" has a billion dollar industry in shoe contracts that has man, woman, child, lesbian, bisexual, transsexual, and other category available working in true slavery. James, Westbrook, Durant, Harden, et.al. are some of the biggest slave masters in the world they just use NIKE and other companies as their middle men. But they be woke

This movie is currently being boycotted in Muslim countries because of the same sex kiss.

Oklahoma is like "Here Muslim countries hold my beer"
Yes, a random theater in Oklahoma putting up a warning sign that was eventually taken down is definitely a one upping "hold my beer" moment over Muslim countries views on homosexuality and their boycott of the movie.:derp:
