"Woke" is now almost exclusively used by those who seek to deride it, those who chafe at the activism from which it sprang. Opponents to the idea are seeking to render it toxic. They use it to stand in for change itself, for evolution, for an accurate assessment of history and society that makes them uncomfortable and deflates their hagiographic view of American history.

I completely agree most all of that, the Northeast is cold in more ways than one  :ph34r:

But I don't get the 'Hard R' states of the Southeast. Lots of Southern accents are non-rhotic.
