Not that pandering NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell’s league wasn’t already “woke” enough…
Zygi Wilf, the principal owner of the Minnesota Vikings has donated $5 million to New York Law School to support a program intended to train agents of “social change.”

As reported by Reuters, Wilf is a real estate billionaire who received a law degree from New York Law School in 1973. In a statement after making the donation to the school from his family’s philanthropical organization, Wilf said that the donation would help encourage diversity in the legal field.
As transcribed by Reuters:
As an alumnus of (New York Law School), I know the students are committed to creating a fairer, more just world, and we look forward to seeing what these scholars accomplish as part of this program.
It is also essential that we continue to diversify the legal field, and we hope this program will attract a diverse range of students who can bring new perspectives and insights to the legal profession.
The equally woke law school was elated by the donation, saying it would allow them to “profoundly expand” their efforts to “support students interested in seeking legal instruction in social justice.”
New York Law School dean Anthony Crowell said in a statement, according to Reuters:
This transformative gift will open doors and change lives. I am profoundly grateful to Zygi Wilf and his family for their exceptional vision, their commitment [to] a more inclusive legal profession, and their belief in the power of change through the law.
The school will offer scholarships through the newly organized Wilf Impact Center, noted Reuters, for the sake of training agents of social change. Students chosen for the social justice scholarships will be called Wilf Scholars. [rolling-eyes emoji]
In related Woke NFL™ news, as reported by my colleague Nick Arama, Bill Maher blasted the NFL for playing “Lift Every Voice and Sing” before the season’s first game on Sunday.
The host of HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher” referred to the song, sometimes referred to as the “black national anthem,” as part of “segregation…under a different name.”

The bottom line.
The Left continues to employ a “go woke or go broke” strategy — it thinks. In reality — and there is no better example than Roger Goodell’s NFL — “go woke and go broke” is the silly game they continue to play.
