I joined TRT World’s Nexus to discuss why the label “cancel culture” is meaningless, except as a political weapon to hinder and even bury discussion of important political and social issues.
I was invited by the program to discuss the term. Wary that it might be another click-bait attempt to rile — and thus attract — viewers, I accepted to try and focus attention on what really matters: discussion of matters from racism to discrimination to economic justice to LGBTQ rights.
Then I learned, just before going on air, that I would be alongside the right-wing commentator Andre Walker, who would certainly use “cancel culture” as a bludgeon.
So how to proceed?
"Cancel culture" is a meaningless term only "useful" in deflecting attention from issues@PiersMorgan "cancelled" himself w his polemics & his walk-off
And now we no longer have to deflect from issues by paying any attention to him…. https://t.co/uRBpyot5AB
