As I saw somewhere else, Woke, especially in 2021 is just another snarl word the right uses against everything they hate.

And like since the days of Jazz, white folks are always (over)using our slang, wearing it out, (everything from hip to hep , to you go girl. to throwing shade to snatching wigs) and we move on to the next word or phrase.. that they will soon wear out and abuse

Oddly enough, Woke is closer to the term "red pilled" that conservatives co-opted from the Matrix movies, made by two trans women and used as a metaphor for it
