Depending on who uses it the term is a compliment or insult.
Oh no, it's an insult no matter what. Just some people are too stupid to realize it's an insult, hence the side definition of woke=idiot.

Yes . But Sports Illustrated touched someone's feelings many years ago and 'got canceled' by a poster here that felt obligated to tell everyone because ot still hurts them.
Excellent summation.
"Canceling" is bad and immoral unless you are the one that does the canceling.
Apparently "snowflakes" still exist.
The hypocrisy is monumental.

Anything about pool in a national publication is a good thing.

Someone posted this on Facebook but i added my own...I concider the following the definition of UN-WOKE thought....

I never cared you were gay until you started shoving it down my throat...
Do I agree with it? No. But it's your choice. I don't think you should get special treatment because of it.

I never cared what color you were until you started blaming me for your problems...I am not racist simply because I am white or i dont agree with your socialist ideals.

I never cared about your political affiliation until you started condemning me for mine... I am not a bad person because I believe in the Constitution.

I never really cared for where you were born until you wanted to erase my history and blame my ancestors for your problems...

Don't tell me you want to take my guns away because you believe society will be safer. The more guns are removed from the citizen, the more dangerous the government becomes. And at the same time, you want to defund the police. That proves to me you don't give a damn about the safety of the public only power... There is a simple answer... start holding all public officials accountable for their actions. Qualified or diplomatic immunity must go.

You know, I never even cared if your beliefs were different from mine until you said my beliefs were wrong.

But now I care! My patience and tolerance are gone! I am not alone. Millions of you feel the same way I do.

Turn the above statements 180 deg and that is the definition of woke. You know, living in a woke society is like owning a home in a HOA. You will have someone, who thinks they are better then you, constantly telling you how to live your life.
A post for the ages. Thanks for sharing.

Wow, this thread took a turn for the worse. Always good to get a reminder of why pool is where it is in the eyes of the world....pool players.

Anyway, very cool that SVB is in SI. I will admit I didn't realize SI was still even in print but glad anytime pool gets some solid recognition in the public eye.

Not enough people would understand what it means.
I'm betting you're one of them .

Sports Illustrated is Marxist because it put Jenner on the cover?

Just look here at this thread on the disagreement on what woke means. It's a different scary monster for each person that's used it as a pejorative.
