Is the Super Mario Bros movie anti-woke?

Mario isn't gay
Luigi isn't a transgender
They aren't black

Aren't those woke things?
If thats a serious question you seriously need to learn what woke is. Not having those things doesn't make it anti-woke just as having them makes them woke.
And don't forget, Mario comes from Japan.

If I were to be entirely honest, nothing. This seems like the case of Republicans claiming "ownership" of a movie that they enjoyed, calling it "anti-woke", without ever explaining why.
So, they like and are appropriating a movie they're too old for?

Explain to us what woke is? Some have asked.


"Mario comes from Japan"

He is caucasian. Just 99% of Nintendo's characters.

If so, it might help me turn over a new leaf, although I am still woke.

I haven't seen the latest one, but I remember the one with Dennis Hopper and Bob Hoskins. It was kind of weird, but that was back in the days before we were "woke." Then there was the video game. I used to play that quite a bit, along with the earlier (non-super) Mario Brothers, Donkey Kong, Donkey Kong Jr. I don't think anyone had any real issue with them either being woke or anti-woke.

But then again...

He's still came from Japan though.
Amd you probably want to learn more Nintendo characters. Solid Snake is half Japanese, Link and Zelda are closer to elves, Samus is a human from wherever she's from, Final Fantasy has a mixture, Kirby isn't even humanoid, Fox McCloud is a fox, there's lizards and dinosaurs, Ryu Hyabusa and other ninjas are Japanese, Mike Tyson (who the game is named afterl is black, and with the NES I'd wager most are in the eye of the beholder. Like, did the guy in Kung-Fu evem get developed that much?
And woke is nothing more than being aware of systemic discrimination and repression.
