If you are offended by a term like "woke", believe the earth is flat and that dinosaurs are a myth invented by communism, the DR hardly needs your contribution.

Dominicans are, imo, one of the most welcoming and tolerant folks, I have come across....... And I wouldn't mind it staying that way.

Vote me in as senator !!!!!

I don't think anyone is offended by the term woke. It's just that it's so stupid. As an oldie, it reminds me of the 60s and early 70s with the counter culture.

The DR is not like that at all. It's not weird like the USA and Europe. I think that's its appeal. Well that and the weather, beaches, and low cost of living.

"Woke" AKA as Cultural Marxism CRT isn't going to march through the institutions of the DR anytime soon.

never heard the word or term "woke" used here. However people that use it usually don't like words like "work, job, employment and accountability".

The irony is that Woke is a term which originated from African-American venicular and don't use it anymore.... Now it sas become a low key way to hate on segments of the population.

The sad part, to me at least, is how obsessed and bitter, some are with the country they left behind while affirming their love for DR.

I don't get it....It s like a former wife/husband, just move on. Imagine having a new perfect girlfriend and still be bitter as f8ck ???? It s unhealthy :cool:

I expect this thread will be going away soon. Anyway, I agree with you and here's a bit of history of the term for those who might be interested:
