A woke person is someone who has "woken up" to modern discrimination and social issues. Examples include cultural differences and racial injustices.
Wokeness is a proclamation and challenge to others, especially those who may be oblivious to discrimination. The challenge is to not give in to pressures from other people and stand firm with those being oppressed.
Woke is often used in the context of "stay woke" or "get woke" and is associated with movements like Black Lives Matter (BLM). In this instance, a woke individual may be a white person who has become aware of the privileges they experience because of their skin color.
The term is also politically charged; it is often associated with liberals and denounced by conservatives. You will most likely see or hear it used on social media, in the news, and in in-person discussions regarding race, LGBTQ gender identity, or politics.
