A gaggle of self-righteous ideologues who would rather jump on the latest bandwagon and lecture atop soapboxes than stand on their own two feet, alongside the people they purport to advocate for.
Person 1: “Haven’t heard a peep from The Woke.”
Person 2: “Hmm, I wonder why?”
Person 1: “Diverted by some trivial issue, no doubt.”

Get the The Woke mug.
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"

When this term became popularized, initially the meaning of this term was when an individual become more aware of the social injustice. Or basically, any current affairs related like biased, discrimination, or double-standards.

However, as time passed by, people started using this term recklessly, assigning this term to themselves or someone they know to boost their confidence and reassure them that they have the moral high grounds and are fighting for the better world. And sometimes even using it as a way to protect themselves from other people's opinion, by considering the 'outsider' as non-woke. While people that are in line with their belief as woke. Meaning that those 'outsiders' have been brainwash by the society and couldn't see the truth. Thus, filtering everything that the 'outsider' gives regardless whether it is rationale or not.

And as of now, the original meaning is slowly fading and instead, is used more often to term someone as hypocritical and think they are the 'enlightened' despite the fact that they are extremely close-minded and are unable to accept other people's criticism or different perspective. Especially considering the existence of echo chamber(media) that helped them to find other like-minded individuals, thus, further solidifying their 'progressive' opinion.
1st paragraph
"Damn bro, I didn't realize racism is such a major issue in our country! I'm a woke now!"

2nd paragraph
"I can't believe this. How are they so close-minded? Can't they see just how toxic our society is? The solution is so simple, yet they refused to change! I just don't understand!"

3rd paragraph
"Fatphobic?! Misogyny?! What's wrong with preferring a thin woman?! And she is morbidly obese for god sake! Why should I be attracted to her?! Why should I lower myself while she refuse to better herself?! These woke people are a bunch of ridiculous hypocrite!"

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.

Being "woke" means to "be paying the fuck attention to what's going on, because if you don't, you'll get fucked over and left behind". Also, "get your fucking head out of the fucking sand, you fucking lame idiot. Life isn't all about getting high and getting laid. WAKE THE FUCK UP!!!"
You better get woke, because before you know it, we'll all be speaking some bastardized form of Russian.

Old Definition: Awareness of our issues.

New Definition: Fake awareness of issues that don't exist, Mainly used politically. Or A left-leaning ideologist with a close-minded character.

History: The term 'woke' was used by the Black community to spread awareness of the issues they've been facing, but ever since politicians starting using it, its lost real meaning, pretty much silencing the voice of the oppressed.

It was first used by the social liberals as a political movement, but has also manage to fool its opponent who's also adapted to newer term.
Old meaning Ex: You need to wake up, stay woke about the issues America is facing.

New Meaning Ex: Hey let's spread awareness of how offensive it is to be called by gender pronouns!
