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.

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.

Describes a state of being in which you generally question common paradigms. The word denotes that a person has a desire to research his positions on most issues before espousing ideas that are accepted. Intrinsic to the state of being woke is that you fight against systems of indoctrination such as religion, education system, racism, nutrition, etc...
