Time I WOKE Up

Ask a Question

Time I WOKE up - ok, I'm going to admit to not being down with the kids but can someone tell me, what WOKE means? Is it about being WOKE up, or what? Why are they using this, in what context?

I’m not a fan of this new age terminology. I get it’s a way to convey that someone is conscious and aware of prejudices, but it is now so overused. Every time I hear someone refer to themselves as ‘woke’ it feels like they’re being smug about it, like it’s an accolade to say they are in with the ‘in‘ crowd.

It just means that you are aware of prejudices and social injustice in society.

I wondered if it is a dig at members to the truth community. You would most likely know that as conspiracy theorists. I was big into that for a good 5 years, but I've taken a large step back as it has become hardcore christians getting excited about end times. I digress. In the truth community you become awaken; you say you are awake, you have taken the red pill like Neo in the Matrix and you start to learn truths (and research) about what is really going on in the world. When I started hearing hollywood stars say they are woke, I thought was this a way to get people to think being woke is banging on about being vegan where as to be awake was to research who really runs this planet, etc.
