A word currently used to describe "consciousness" and being aware of the truth behind things "the man" doesn't want you to know i.e. classism, racism, and any other social injustices.

Using an improper word in an incorrect tense to attempt to attach some worldly signifigance to a person or object (books, screenplay, etc.) so that one appears to be "hip." In actual fact, this usage shows one's ignorance and inability to use words and feelings to express oneself properly.
A celebrity guest on Talking Dead used "woke" to describe the episode of The Walking Dead when elightened or relevant may have made better choices. Keep in mind that this is a fictional show about Zombies.
