A view of the world not based on one’s own truth (i.e. standpoint epistemology), but grounded in data, reason, and universal principles.
I’m Not Woke. I agree racism exists and has caused disparities, but evidence doesn’t support it as the source for all inequality of outcome.

An idealistic view of the world or ones own perception of reality, not necessarily grounded in reality or truth.
Racism isn't real, people just make that stuff up to cause problems. Everyone is woke Not Woke

Today there is a new definition of "woke". You might have woke your dog up when you opened that bag of chips, but he is not "woke" as it applies today. To be "woke" means you're now informed of things you did not know. You are not "in the dark" about other societies and cultures whose past has been edited and censored to make you think it wasn't as bad as it actually was.
You might consider yourself to be woke, but you could probably still learn a thing or two.

I believe it is an evolving word that dances about on its slang usages, and has somewhat different nuanced meanings depending on the context.

From the running social zeitgeist, it would described it as modern hipsters referring to a person being described has been enlightened or having just discovered some politically Progressive 'truth' about society or the oppression and class status of marginalized people, and the obligation to treat them as extra-special/revered in society.

And understand that it is almost always used non-ironically/seriously only by political Progressives, so when Conservatives or Libertarians use it it mostly to poke fun at the others' usage of it.
After having taking classes in Minority Studies, and seen the hidden oppressions of African American, he became woke to the seriousness of their plight, and dedicated himself to be aware of it and understand they live in a different world than White people.

Woke means politically aware. Muhammad Ali was woke, but Michael Jordan and Tiger Woods were not. Woke people are in Black Live Matter, the Green Movement, etc. They fight the system of oppression and are aware of all of its forms.
Rachel Maddow is woke.

a small southern town, with about 62,000 inhabitants, is actually not as shit as the 2nd description.
cinema, pool in the park, 25 min train journey to LDN, supermarkets, shopping centre, theatre, colleges and schools are some of the greaaaat attractions.
yess, populated by a lot of chavs, but there are other subcultures within this town.

1: "where do you live?"
2: "wokinggg"
1: "ohh sick, its pretty cool there"
