Kellyanne Conway shredded as a racist for claim being 'woke is a joke -- woke is totally broke'

The term is generally used to refer to having empathy and understanding with communities of color. President Donald Trump's campaign recently launched an effort to attract Black voters, but Conway told the crowd that "woke is totally broke."

It prompted a significant response from those watching online, wondering if it was Conway trying to be clever but inadvertently attacked slight communities of color.
