To help us get over an instigated movement for political purposes, one writer defines WOKE in the following manner:
There are things that I as a white person do not worry about. I do not worry about people assuming I am a criminal if they happen upon me on the street in a hooded sweatshirt. I do not worry about whether my doctor understands my medical issues. I do not worry about whether my children will be treated fairly in school. Basically, I worry about only making my way in a world that I believe will treat me fairly.
He goes on to say that, in reality, he and all white people are privileged, because unlike himself and other white people ...
The Black man who has to behave very carefully during a traffic stop to avoid getting shot or tazed, has reason to worry.
The Black woman having to wait in long lines to vote in Georgia, has reason to worry.
The Asian woman who gets continually asked, "where are you from," you know, really has reason to worry.
The Hispanic family that’s lived here (USA) for 25 years, but must continually prove their citizenship, has reason to worry.
He concludes that these individuals must do more than just make their way in a world that should see them and treat them fairly, sadly, some won’t - END OF QUOTE
"Every man, woman, and child, no matter their race, color, or creed, all human beings were created equal in the eyes of God, and all bleed the same color of blood as all fellowman, and are therefore entitled to be seen and heard, and respected, no differently than any other human being; and those who choose to judge otherwise, should and must be held accountable, no matter their worldly status, religious or political platform, period, case closed."

Speaking of God the True and Only Authority
From day one of creation to the end and last day of creation as we know it, the literal authority on this topic is JESUS CHRIST LIVING GOD, and not man, nor is it up for debate.
If salvation, the saving grace and security of the soul for all eternity, is offered to both the Jew and the Gentile (unbelievers), by the Creator and living God Himself, then it's settled: ALL PEOPLE ARE CREATED EQUAL AND WORTHY AND DESERVING OF RESPECT.
Diversity and uniqueness was put into motion by the event known as the Tower of Babel - and for further clarity from the inerrant and infallible living word of the living God -

Revelation 5:9 (NLT) And they sang a new song with these words: “You are worthy to take the scroll and break its seals and open it. For you were slaughtered, and your blood has ransomed people for God from every tribe and language and people and nation.
Revelation 7:9 (NLT) After this I saw a vast crowd, too great to count, from every nation and tribe and people and language, standing in front of the throne and before the Lamb. They were clothed in white robes and held palm branches in their hands.
Revelation 13:7 (NLT) And the beast was allowed to wage war against God’s holy people and to conquer them. And he was given authority to rule over every tribe and people and language and nation.
Revelation 14:6 (NLT) And I saw another angel flying through the sky, carrying the eternal Good News to proclaim to the people who belong to this world—to every nation, tribe, language, and people.
Let us cease to listen to the instigators of life, determined to instill 'divide & conquer,' and instead, choose to live and learn from different cultures, where we may discover a new twist to something as simple as home baked apple pie, or as powerful as a new business idea never before presented in our own culture - amen and amen, thank you Jesus for unity.
