According to the Oxford English Dictionary "woke" is defined as: …According to the Oxford English Dictionary "woke" is defined as: "Originally: well-informed, up-to-date. Now chiefly: alert to racial or social discrimination and injustice."The Urban Dictionary, however, simply says: "Being woke means being aware… knowing what’s going on in the community (related to racism and social injustice)."



Being Woke is more a derogatory word nowadays, associated with Leftist opinions who believes their viewpoints, ideology and attitude is tantamount to being the correct, without understanding the consequences of their actions or recourse. Thus many believe they hold the moral high ground, campaigning for personal rights especially for minorities without realising the wider repercussions or causing offense.

It would be nice if you were actually helpful like I am to your posts.
Woke: shorthand synonym for virtue signalling.

Good question. I think it means that previously you were ignorant to something that you now see. Hope that clears it up for you

Oh. Like Beirut. Everyone is talking about ammonium nitrate explosiosion but no one is reporting on the first explosion that set it off.


Does that make me "woke"

I much prefer to go back to sleep

When I think of woke I think of activism, pandering, labels and idealism.

That is the impression I am getting. It is more of an insult of types than anything else.

I have to disagree. There was a separate explosion one which the ignited the ammonium nitrate. Two separate events.

Like Nigel Farage recently with his citizen journalism? Who'd have thought he could be woke.
