There’s one question that matters to the oblivious far-left these days.
“How woke is woke enough?”
Even the wokest among them are still running a risk of being labeled as “not-woke-enough.”
That’s what’s happening to Tom Hanks these days, as he’s being targeted by the NPR (National Public Radio) for not being “anti-racist.”
If you think I’m exaggerating to make a point, this is the exact title of the piece that NPR published two days ago:
Opinion: Tom Hanks Is A Non-Racist. It’s Time For Him To Be Anti-Racist
Deggans believes Hanks didn’t go far enough.
“These are wise words. And it’s wonderful that Hanks stepped forward to advocate for teaching about a race-based massacre – indirectly pushing back against all the hyperventilating about critical race theory that’s too often more about silencing such lessons on America’s darkest chapters.
“But,” Deggans lamented, “it is not enough.”
Hanks has made a career out of playing “righteous white men” in films that “often leave out Black contribution,” Deggans argued.Fox News
The context for the piece is even more mind-boggling. It’s a commentary on a recent editorial that Hanks published about the Tulsa race massacre in which he pretty much asked for more white guilt to be shoved upon his race.
You’d think that it would appease the far-left crazies, but it just sparked a debate on whether he’s one of them or needs to do more.
It would be funny if it weren’t eating at the very fiber of this proud nation.
