"Of Course You Know What 'Woke' Means"

Recently there was one of those quintessential Net dustups over conservatives being allegedly unable to define "woke". Here, Freddie deBoer--no conservative but a rare mostly rational Liberal--defines it as much as anyone needs. (My shorter definition: the force behind at least 90% of my discouragement reading the news.) This is a key sentence to me:

. . . woke politics are overwhelmingly concerned with the linguistic, the symbolic, and the emotional to the detriment of the material, the economic, and the real. 

Explains it all: I'm not interested in the symbolic and the emotional and I am interested in the economic and the real.
