There are many valid reasons to disrespect Lindsay Graham. Allegedly being closeted is not among them--unless said closeted person publically rails against homosexuality. (Neither is simply being gay, on either side of the closet door, period). I'm trying to avoid culturally-insensitive insults. Not saying I'm "woke" by any means, though. Anyone who boasts they're "woke" isn't. At best, they're sleepwalking.

To explain: "woke" implies having had an epiphany (what Ms. Magazine used to call a "click" moment), on the recent side of a bright line, and permanently so at that. But being politically & culturally sensitive and evolved is a process, an "awakening," if you will. And that awakening is ongoing, over the course of a lifetime. To judge someone based where on they are on that continuum, as evidenced by past words & deeds, requires a hard look at chronology--and in the course of seemingly "cancel-worthy" statements, taken in the context of how long ago they were made, the degree of power (and responsibility to set an example) the person had at the time, the ideology, culture & rhetoric prevailing in that era, the speech truly reflecting the person's odious beliefs, and the pattern of words & conduct that demonstrates whether or not that person has since acknowledged the wrongfulness of their prior words & deeds and has sincerely rejected them. (Or, conversely, tries to justify or defend their prior insensitivity or even worse, continues to stand by it).

Some things justifiably should disqualify a person from a position of public trust, meaningful fame or being a role model (the definition of "cancel"). Mike Richards' sexist, racist and anti-Semitic quips--especially so recent--are an example. But Alexi McCamant's teenage Tweets, made a decade ago, should not cause her to lose, at 27, a magazine editorship--especially when they consisted of language considered acceptable by her peers of all ethnicities & ideologies half a lifetime ago. (I'm glad to see Axios has given her a chance).

A sense of logic & proportion is also advisable--that millennial who's suing Nirvana (including Cobain's estate) for using as an album cover a photo of him swimming naked while still a baby should be laughed out of court. (If for no other reason that a remedy requires having suffered an injury--and who the heck would look at a 31-yr-old and say "hey, I recognize you--you're that Nevermind naked swimming baby")? Taking a snapshot of your baby on a bearskin rug is not child porn, even if you put it on your social media timeline. (Arguably, neither are even David Hamilton's photos of seemingly prepubescent naked girls--who were all over 18 at the time and consented to have those photos published. Distasteful, maybe, but not illegal).

How many of us baby boomers used "retarded" as a pejorative adjective (rather than a verb) on the grade school or jr. high playground bsck in the 1960s? If not getting "cancelled" requires having experienced an epiphany, that epiphany should not have had to occur in childhood (much less in utero).

To those decrying the teaching of "Critical Race Theory" (which is not even a "thing," BTW), i reply that as much as we kids were taught that the Civil War was fought over the right to own human beings, that the Cherokee were uprooted from the only home they knew and marched to a barren Oklahoma, and that Peter Stuyvesant ripped off the indigenous Manhattan tribes (whose name, Lenape, we didn't learn till recently), we weren't taught anywhere near the half of it. Our teachers left out the fact that there was slavery in the North (even slave auctions in lower Manhattan), probably because their own teachers never told them. Tours of the White House, Mt. Vernon, Colonial Williamsburg, and Monticello downplayed (or barely mentioned) the slaves that built them and kept them running. And even though I grew up in Brooklyn, NY, it wasn't until last spring that I even heard of Weeksville, the 19th century middle-class Black community only a couple of miles from my childhood home. And it wasn't till Lizzo's set during yesterday's Global Citizen concert in Central Park that I'd even heard of Seneca Village--the affluent free Black community that was depopulated and razed to acquire the land to build Central Park. And it wasn't until 2020 that I (and most Americans) learned the tragic story of the massacre & destruction of Greenwood, Tulsa's "Black Wall Street."

Teaching the true history of America--from slavery's role in creating the foundations of this country to the short doomed history of Reconstruction to Jim Crow and the horrors perpetrated thereby, doesn't mean our kids are being taught that all white people are racists, nor that we white people should all feel guilty for what we have. It means that history is multifaceted and messy. Time to stop the idiocy of binary (e.g., "you're a racist if you are not actively anti-racist," whatever that entails) thinking and give our kids credit for having the gray matter to be able to process the gray areas, more than just "cowboys vs. Indians."
