All Woke Up: Sleep supremacy

Empower Wisconsin | July 22, 2020

A good night’s sleep is just so much white privilege. So say the folks behind Black Power Naps. 

BPN is described as an artistic initiative. 

“But it’s also a recognition of the hundreds of years of sleep deprivation that Black people and people of color have experienced as a result of systemic racism …,” reports the zeitgeist trackers at Teen Vogue. 

Fannie Sosa and Navild Acosta are the captains of the Black Power Nap. They say their movement — the latest stream of nonsense from the radical left — is an investigation of the “inequitable distribution of rest.” 

“It came from understanding that the American dream is a sleepless one,” Sosa said. “We inherited this exhaustion.” 

Of course, as the somnolence narrative goes, white people, because of their “privilege,” get a better night’s sleep. White supremacy is now sleep supremacy, for those scoring along at home. 

What is really fatiguing is trying to keep up and make sense of the endless flow of crap coming from the identity politics crowd. 

The painfully woke are exhausting. 

We find the latest politically correct craze of sleep privilege to be one big yawn. 

“It came from understanding that the American dream is a sleepless one,” Sosa said. “ We inherited this exhaustion.”

It’s a way to pushback against the false stereotype that Black people are lazy, and an investigation of the inequitable distribution of rest. That lack of sleep has serious consequences.

Fannie Sosa and Navild Acosta were tired, but it wasn’t just any old fatigue. Yes, they experienced a lack of sleep, but they were specifically experiencing a generational fatigue familiar to Black people and people of color. From this sleeplessness, the two created Black Power Naps.

“It came from understanding that the American dream is a sleepless one,” Sosa said. “ We inherited this exhaustion.”

Black Power Naps is an artistic initiative with components including physical installations, zines, an opera, and more. 

A good night’s sleep is just so much white privilege, contend the folks behind Black Power Naps.
