Why I am in support of Wokeism

Wokeism is a concept through which people are aware of the systemic injustices present in our society, such as racial and gender discrimination.

Currently, society is increasingly being divided into two groups: those who support wokeism and those who are anti-wokeism.

In this blog post, I argue in support of wokeism.

Our world is very unequal.

In terms of earnings, historically, only a handful of individuals have controlled a large pile of money.

Money begets more money, so this inequality has only increased.

Examples of vast inequality can be noticed in our modern world, where the Global South is vastly underdeveloped in comparison to the Global North.

Some Global South countries include India, African nations, China, Indonesia, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Vietnam, etc.

Examples of countries that belong to the global North are European countries, the United States, and Canada.

The global south has been a victim of slavery in the last several centuries.

Even in Europe, the Jewish race had to face discrimination, and they were victims of the Holocaust in the 1940s due to the ideology of white supremacy.

Similarly, women, too, have had to face discrimination, such as unequal wages compared to men, no voting rights for many decades, unequal access to education, and so on.

Millions of people go to bed hungry, even in our present times where obscene wealth is showcased by media in the hands of few.

It is these pressing issues that wokeism tries to address.

One can be called a woke person if he is sensitive to the social evils present in our society and tries to address them.

Even Jesus can be called a woke person, as he was sensitive to the plight of the poor and oppressed.

Let's make our world a more equitable place to live in. Namaste!
