The word “woke” was coined in 2014 by Black Lives Matter to protest police brutality. The word now includes several progressive Marxist ideologies that divide society into oppressors and the oppressed.
Equity is Marxism Rebranded
Marxism has never worked as evidenced by the collapse of the Soviet Union, the deplorable human rights abuses in China, and the utter disintegration of Venezuela’s economy.
The solution to this failure of Marxism is to invent a new label that will appeal to the masses.
Enter the latest rebranding of Marxism: Equity. Many are inclined to embrace “Equity” because it sounds good. It sounds a lot like “Equality.”
The leftist academic of the 1930s, Max Horkheimer, a locked-and-loaded Marxist, predicted a century ago, “The revolution won’t happen with guns but incrementally as we gradually infiltrate educational institutions and political offices.”

DEI positions have been among the hardest hit at Big Tech companies. Companies have come to understand that DEI positions do not produce anything of value.

DEI Programs Banned at State Universities
In May 2023, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signed legislation that bans state funding for DEI programs in the state’s universities.
The Texas legislature also passed a law banning DEI programs at state universities. The bill has been sent to Governor Greg Abbott for approval.
Americans Do Not Want DEI Programs
Medical school students, whose learning should be focused on the healing arts, are now required to study white supremacy, structural racism, and the sin of being white.
The DEI movement, like other woke ideologies, will destroy itself because it is not grounded in truth. A sign that people are seeing flaws in DEI is mainstream comedians are making jokes about it.
