The Buppie Movement


As we all strive to be more successful and wealthier than the next guy.. and choose to chase paper and titles and promotions, grab up MBA's,  JD's,  MD's and MS's like they're hotcakes.. we move up the socio-economic ladder into new stratospheres, lifestyles and sometimes even into new social circles..

And as Afro-Americans we often have the option of moving into the creme de la creme of social circles.. the top tier of elitest lol the ones we call... The Buppie Movement

So what's a Buppie?

By definition it's a black urban professional who took the traditional route of hard work and education to become successful and is either in the process of building or has built tremendous wealth for themselves..

To me..  and the urban dictionary which provides buppie with a second definition which is... a Black Yuppie.. Someone who may have done the path quoted above and in the process has removed themselves from everything associated with the struggle of the life they had before they got there..or they are the off spring of those who escaped the struggle and have made life appear as if they were always this well off and never had any experience with "those kind of black people". (think Lauren London's dad in the movie ATL)

I definitely think that as one transcends social circles there are things you decide to no longer tolerate or associate yourself with.. however.. to act as if it never happened and that you are now entitled to the silver spoon treatment for all of eternity and no one should ever know about your "other" life.. is just fraud..

When I went to grad school there were tons of buppies and I hung out with a few of them trying to understand them and their culture and realized for the most part they couldn't even be true to themselves let alone another human being.... I couldn't take it. I felt out of place and uncomfortable. On paper I'm a perfect Buppie candidate... Ivy league, Greek, beating the odds and making a pretty decent living for someone my age..... but one thing that I know keeps me uncomfortable in that circle is that I always want to be down to earth and be able to relate to a variety of people from all walks of life.... something that few buppies are/do.. :( unfortunately..

I am not defined by my resume.. nor my income.. which is how most buppies operate.. less than 5 minutes after meeting they want to know where you went to school, and what you do for a living.. oh do you have an MBA?

schoops.. get out of my face with this nonsense.. GOOGLE ME if you want the on paper version of me! I'm here live in the flesh, get to know me and who I am, what I stand for.. etc.. that's way more important than which grad school I went to..

Collectively with all the resources they have between them, intellectually and financially, you would think that they alone could be the catalyst to help all the homies back home, get to where they need to be.. Instead they turn their noses up at any and everyone not on their level..yeah that's fine as long as you keep climbing that ladder, and its great to be proud of where you are, but don't forget about your dear old grandmama, who picked cotton 24 hours a day so that you could have a chance to even step foot into Vera Wang as a customer..

I'm sick of the Black-on-Black Snobbery.... Your accomplishments do no make you who you are... they should only be enhancements to an already whole person.. oh and fyi.. the w-p's you're trying to play golf with on the weekends, aren't going to claim you when the shit hits the fan.. so get your mind right..ahemm. ok Tiger.. lolol

I agree entirely. My hubby to be and I went out, which we rarely do, in the social scene of ATL the other weekend. We happened to run into what I call a wannabe 'buppie.' We both attended the same school and as a far as I know he didn't acquire any grad level degree; however the entire conversation I felt as though I was being lectured by some professor on life, finance and everything under the sun. He was truly a KNOW IT ALL and both myself and my fiancé were quickly put off by this. Granted he is successful and works for himself; however he does not KNOW everything under the sun. I mentioned something about not applauding too loudly for Jay Z's success because after all he raps about selling drugs which in turn helped him to launch his career and he quickly chimmed in that he is a great business man point blank. OK lol let's not forget all the families his great business acumen hurt on the way up to the Forbes list. smh
