Brew PSA: A Little French Lesson

20

From the mind of Elphaba Of The Brew | Posted in brew psa | Posted on 03-09-2012

Some of y’all are really using and spelling this word WRONG and it’s giving me ANGINA. It’s not: BHUGGIE, BOOZEE, BOUJEE, OR BOOGIE. If you INSIST on shortening it try Bourgie…I’ll even accept a Bougie (though that is French for candle). But for the LOVE OF GOD. Know what it means.

Bourgeoisie
1: of, relating to, or characteristic of the social middle class
2: marked by a concern for material interests and respectability and a tendency toward mediocrity
3: dominated by commercial and industrial interests : capitalistic

Even Whitley Gilbert of Richmond, Virginia got over herself

 Now, I don’t know when it became a badge of honor for the modern Negro, to embrace being “Bourgie”.  I assure you the Talented 10th were not sitting around plotting their next Stepford Style Cul de Sac purchase to lord over one another or their next German-made sports car, for that matter.  I suppose when any group of people who isn’t used to having anything gets a lil’ something they think it’s cute to be called capitalistic and materialistic.  It’s not. Cut it out and have some class about ya’selves- but that just may be the modern day hippie in me, talking.

Let me lay to rest what BOURGIE is NOT:

  • caring for your family
  • gainful employment
  • taking care of your health
  • having a clean, well maintained place to live
  • eating healthily
  • enjoying non “soul” foods
  • the pursuit of education
  • exercising
  • reading for pleasure
  • presenting oneself with class and distinction in the public eye
  • wearing your pants on your waist

These are things we ALL as a human race should be striving for.  Someone trying to maintain these BASICS, is not BOURGIE. They’re trying to live a productive and healthy life.  Got it??

Now, I’m going to go back to searching the ‘net for this year’s  Martha’s Vineyard summer share. Ok, now that may be slightly bourgie — even then, know THAT history, son!

I BEAT YOU, BECAUSE I LOVE YOU!
