Woke is a derogative term not a good one. It describes those who talk about issues from a leftest point of view to earn social standing or credit and don't actually care about these issues. Same with virtue signaling. People so described care about the appearance of caring about how they look to others. They are shallow and vain. Now it could be that it it used of those have recently seen the genuine need to be involved and do genuinely care but haven't shown care it before, at least on a given issue, but mostly it is reserved for the phonies the attention seeking people who have to have the spotlight on them or have to be seen as part of the crowd. Wokeness isn't about caring it is about the appearance of caring that is why people hate it. Like those who are concerned with appearing to be Christian but not with being Christian.
