ROFL at these bourgie Negroes gettin' upset because they're being brought to light. It's true! :D

Although, I've recently befriended someone who makes all y'all seem *far* from bourgie :( Sometimes (s)he says things and I don't know what she's talking about but I just grin and nod :-[

Thank you.  This conversation is too ridiculous for words.

honestly, i don't even shop at BR or JCRew or rock abercrombie...yet i still think that calling those brands bougie (espoecially in the case of BR where you wouldn't even know it's br by looking) is retarded.

are you f-ing serious? I don't agree with the BR bougie stuff. that's just whatever to me. But Abercrombie is the white man's official clothing line.

that's still ridiculous tho....so the black kids who grow up in a certain neighborhood where A&F is common is automatically bougie?  that's ridiculous...that's what they where bc that's what they've been exposed to.


people who grow up uppermiddle class are bougie.  sorry.  maybe we need another word because bougie has been so maligned, but it is what it is.  those clothes are rocked by those with sufficiently high incomes to afford them.

::)

x2

honestly, i think, after having been on here for over a year, that black people who don't grow up poor and are middle/upper middle class are automatically called bougie simply bc of not having lived the typical/stereotypical poor black upbringing.  it's smh worthy

I call ppl bougie the most on here I think and that has never been my bougie argument. Bougie = heavily assimilated to me.

You guys have definitions of bougie that I've never seen used before.

To me bougie meant an unwavering taste for expensive/high-class things.

If someone wore Abercrombie but was also willing to wear non-designer clothing, I didn't consider them bougie.

However if they insisted on only wearing Prada and were stuck up about it, then yeah, they were bougie.

I do not understand where either of you are coming from and I think thats because there are two definitions of "bougie" that are floating around (probably my fault) but to clarify
1)bougie (1) of or pertaining to the upper middle class
2)bougie as an attitude--the underlying rationale behind particular behavior.  

from now on I will talk about bougie (1) as oisie

Wait a sec - who isn't heavily assimilated?  Don't get deluded . . . We been here for hundreds of years - yo ass is assimilated just as much as the next person.

Also, I posted a serious response to your serious post, so now who's being ignored? ::)
