Woke (2)

adjective; zero derivation
To be conscious of racial discrimination in society and other forms of suppression and injustice.
 
Started as a political term of African American origin meaning to look for issues involving social injustice and racial discrimination. Now, in internet slang, the term “woke” is used to be aware of your surroundings but often keeps its original meaning of being aware of social injustice. This makes sense as the word woke is the past tense of wake which can be used inn “wake up” or to be conscious of your surroundings.
Etymology : Zero Derivation of woke which is the past tense of wake.
