I’ve learned a new word from my black female co-workers.
It’s a way to describe someone who is materialistic, polished, caught up in the things that seemingly signify status.
Usually, it’s used to explain to a man who is just a regular guy that a girl he might be interested in is simply too “bouji” for him.
The word is derived from “bourgeoisie” (man, that’s a lot of unnecessary vowels).
The most ubiquitous reference I’ve seen to it is by rapper Talib Kweli in a song he collaborated on with rapper Kanye West.
White guys learn something new every day. Though, usually I find a way to use this type of new knowledge. But probably not this one.
