What an excellent depiction of America waking up to the utter horror of the past 4 years and the midden pile of lies and bigots the Republican party has become over the past 30 years. Well done, Gorrell!
Americans used to have blood shot eyes worried about jobs and schooling. Now Americans have bullet eyes. Nobody doing anything on gun violence. Woke enough? NOPE!!
No, not nearly enough! Racism and misogyny and other bigotry are still rampant.
No justice, no peace.
Sorry, but problems don’t just miraculously disappear if they are ignored…
You finally realized how racist and anti democratic the republicans are?
‘Land of the brave and home of the free’? Not according to the GOP it ain’t.
The problem with being constantly woke is that you never achieve the consciousness, clarity, or alertness of actually being awake.
tell’em how you feel Bob! Can’t have these peasants waking up! Gotta keep’em stupid little servants. … smh
Republicans are against the human revolution, they want to hold everyone back.
No, America is not woke enough. Not even close.
“Woke.” Only in America is it considered a bad thing to be aware of what’s happening in the world around one.
I’m not a racist. I just think ppl need to follow the rules to live in my home.
@T Smith – The 1964 Civil rights act would not have passed without the Republicans in the Senate. Racist DemocRat Byrd, a KKK member, and other southern Dem’s were“agin it!!”
@Concretionist – Does the name of Senator Byrd ring a bell in your head. He was aSouthern senator, a racist and an avowed KKK member……remember!!
@VegaAlopex – LBJ was a waffling phony. The 1964 Civil rights act only passed the Senate because the Republicans supported it. Racist and KKK member Senator Byrdviciously opposed it along with other southern DemocRat senators. LBJ also tooksocial security funds for his Great Society which was a utter failure. He was about astute as the Democrat symbol…the jackass!
Nope, not yet. “WOKE” is much like ’politically correct" in that they both are all about showing consideration for our fellow Americans. Bigoted and racial slurs, denying constitutional rights should not be tolerated in the U.S.A.
Tired of all that “winning” yet, Bob? Looks like hundreds of thousands dead and eternal division for your autocratic politics just aren’t enough for you.
looks similar to these:
it looks like Gorrell at least decided to trace over a previous version this time.
it’s so nice of Gorrell to plug his fellow cartoonist Keith Knight’s show ‘Woke’ on hulu:
Actually “Woke” means you are awake and aware about what is really going on, and no longer believe the lies told to you just because everyone believes, or because you read it in a text book, or because your parents told you, because they didn’t know any better, or a myriad of other reasons why people believe them. Its about no longer being a sheep easily led by those lies. Its about researching real history and not HIS-story.
It has a racial undertone only because the term was coined by black people but it can be applied to anyone’s life and anyone’s truth. A challenge and goal of the civil rights movement, and black empowerment in general was for people to Wake UP! To read books, to research, hell to travel the world and see things from a non anglo point of view. To understand things like curly hair is not “Bad” hair/ “Black” is not synonymous with “bad” or “evil”/ That with the same opportunities, black folks can thrive, be educated, and succeed just like any other race… as well as being able to see the micro aggressions that constantly bombard us/ the dog whistles/ and yes the straight up lies broadcasted non stop to the masses. A good example is the common picture of Jesus as a white man despite him being from the middle east, and despite the bible stating he had bronze skin and wool like hair… Or how every time you would see a black person on tv they were depicted as a gangster, a criminal, a slave, a fool, or a prostitute. And the more awake you become, the more you notice. But as I stated before, even though the term was coined by black folks it can be applied to anyone searching for real truth, anyone who is truly on a quest to Wake Up! Women who have constantly been told that theirs is the weaker sex, Asians who have been told their eyes look funny, Latinos labeled as lazy, etc.
So it makes you laugh when you see these right wingers calling people sheep in one breath and then in the next they are lashing out at folks for being “woke”.
