I recently read a story about a black activist who was talking about how America is a racist country and she was pointing out the injustices within the criminal justice system which she referred to as blatantly racist. After reading the article I began reading the comments and one common theme I noticed was about how “woke” the activist was. I have heard the term “woke” a lot lately and I started to ask myself what exactly does it mean. In the context of the article, being “woke” implies you are aware of the atrocities this country has inflicted on black people and you are protesting against these injustices by bringing attention to them through your activism.

Stay tuned!

More to come soon…
