Introducing: The Buppie Life

www.thebuppielife.com


Buppie - A young Black (African-American), urban professional. People that has never heard the term Buppie before usually say “What?” with a tilted head. I go on and explain what a Buppie means both the traditional use of the word and my take on the term. It is a way for identifying a successful black professional. Being a Buppie is a mindset.

I wanted an outlet to write more about my life, the Buppie life. There are many lifestyle blogs but I have not found any up to date blogs on our lifestyle. Buppies are well educated and have economic power.
This website will focus on but will not be limited to:
*Careers
*Education
*Products
*Music & Entertainment
*Philanthropy
*Politics
*Religion

I hope to shine the spotlight weekly on Black businesses and Buppies that are making a move in the professional realm.

If this is your introduction to the term Buppie, you may be asking yourself besides being Black what is the difference between Buppie and Yuppie? Being a Buppie is a unique experience from being a Yuppie. The big difference is being Black. A Black person experiences in the professional realm and especially life is much different than someone who is White. It’s all about the experience.

King of Blues, BB King dead at the age of 89

As you may know, B.B. King has died. The Fresh Music Page doesn’t cover much Blues music, but BB King is a rightful King of Blues. Gospel music often gets its respect for being a forefront for R&B but let’s remember that R&B stands for Rhythm and Blues and the art form of Blues has influenced both R&B, Gospel, and Rock. It is one of the true American Art Forms.
