Lastly, the other common use of woke is saying "I'm woke." This connotation is exclusive and self-promoting. By saying "I'm woke," you are implying a sense of superiority over a supposed dormant population. Understanding race, identity and privilege is a complicated journey. As a gay Latino, I still get it wrong. Growing up, I made the mistake of assuming anybody who looked like me was also of Mexican descent. Or now, when referring to resource centers or diversity conferences, I often have to be corrected for saying "gay" instead of the more inclusive LGBT acronym. When approached with aggression or an air of superiority, I become defensive and am hesitant to change. Yet when approached with understanding and empathy, it is much easier to listen to another's point of view. Too often in social movements, we aim to exclude. I firmly believe that any movement has no room to exclude groups or individuals that are genuinely interested in progressing a cause.
