I've seen the term "woke" used by people on the liberal side.

What that term means to them when they use it is: someone who
is genuinely conscious of the lived experiences of disadvantaged
groups (particularly African-Americans) and of their perception of
those experiences.

So, if you're "woke", then you "get it" - in rather longer-established
slang.

Thus, one can be liberal without being "woke", and then one may be
liable to be well-meaning but still make mistakes that can be seen
as patronizing, or fail to grasp why certain issues are considered to
be serious matters.

So there are black Americans who feel that the more white
Americans become "woke", and the sooner it happens, the better.
