adj. bhoo-shee

Term used to describe someone of lower class origins who shuns his/her background as they ascend the class structure. The term originates from the Marxist word “Bourgeoisie”, which was a term used to define the minority upper-class that controlled pre-Soviet Russia.

Often used by black folks to belittle or hate on other black folks that attempt to better their lives.

Also used to describe a person who tries to be upper class despite a lack of monetary resources and social connections.
