In this week’s episode, Jarrett and Tre’vell are letting listeners know that they don’t mind becoming that Hollywood bougie auntie. They dig into everything bougie, discussing bougie’s historical roots as the Marxist term bourgeoisie, reflecting on the negative connotations of being bougie, and even clarifying the differences between bougie and boughetto for listeners. They even decide to have a little problematic fun by classifying today’s celebrities as either bougie or boughetto. So, regarding last week’s episode titled, Online Dating: Swipe Fright, Jarrett has a quick rundown of no-gos for online dating profiles while Tre’vell, on the other hand, has only one question: where are they’s DM’s!?
Rapper Ali redefined bougie in his rap song “Boughetto (ft. Murphy Lee).” Both Jarrett and Tre’vell mentioned Patrisse Cullors, who stepped down as executive director of Black Lives Matter in May 2021. If you’re looking for more clarification, Cullors is discussed in episodes Colorism: White Supremacy’s Stank Ass Grandchild (ft. Jarrett Lucas) and Colorism Part 2 (ft. Portia Bartley).

Before there was Michelle Obama, there were these amazing patron saints of bougie: Diahann Carroll as Dominique Deveraux in “Dynasty,” Jasmine Guy as Whitley Gilbert in “A Different World,” Kim Fields as Regine Hunter in “Living Single,” Tatyana Ali and Karyn Parsons as Ashley and Hilary Banks in “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air,” Jill Marie Jones as Toni Childs in “Girlfriends,” and Christopher B. Duncan as Braxton P. Hartnabrig in “The Jamie Foxx Show.”

About the show
Sometimes the people, places, and things we love don’t love us back. We’re fans, but we also have some ANTI- feelings toward them. Every week on FANTI, journalists Tre’vell Anderson and jarrett hill bring their pop culture and political expertise to things we must stan and stand up against. FANTI is a place where nuance reigns supreme with energetic, complicated, and sometimes difficult conversations that bring deep knowledge and thoughtful perspective to the things we love and rage about, from the White House to the Real House(wives).
