- Basic Beliefs
I'm pretty sure that native Americans are more upset about being relegated to reserves and having their ancestors murdered rather than what words you use to call them. There's no culturally sensitive way to paper over that lil' transgression.
Are you trying to out-woke me? If I was a better woke I probably would have used this idiotic red-herring on you when you brought up the topic of "Indian" vs "Native American" in the first place.
You put your finger on the issue. Woke is competitive consciousness. It's about who can show they're the most empathic. Because it's a competition they reduce everything to that which can be compared and quantified, and then they use that as a proxy for being the most empathic and compassionate. Missing the entire point of empathy and compassion. They're so busy being empathic that they stop actually being empathic. Instead they become mean and petty. They become everything they're supposed to NOT be. That's why woke is a social poison.
