Don't Just Stay Woke, #WorkWOKE

“I am so tired of hearing the word WOKE,” said people throughout America.
Well candidly, most people probably are, but there is something to be said about pairing it with the word WORK. Taking it way back and referencing the Bible, James 2:14-22 boasts that faith without works is dead. #FACTS
If you read further into the scripture, it references the patriarch of faith Abraham and goes on to say,  “You see that his faith and his actions were working together, and his faith was made complete by what he did.”
During her State of the Union special on BET, political strategist and commentator Angela Rye challenged viewers (6:43) to mobilize their communities to ensure the present reality doesn’t become a permanent future.
