Thug is a term for a violent, lawless person, especially a man. The word was originally used in the 1800s as a name for members of a group of men in India said to be professional criminals and murderers.

So why do you think Tupac used the term 'THUG life'? What did he mean?

Slide 5 - Open vraag

Thug has become a nickname, a badge of honour.

A fancy word for that is a 'sobriquet'

(In Dutch: 'geuzennaam')

'When I was twelve, my parents had two talks with me.
One was the usual birds and bees. Well, I didn't really get the usual version. My mon, Lisa, is a registered nurse, and she told me what went where, and what didn't need to go here, there, or any damn where till I'm grown. Back then I doubted anything was going anywhere anyway. While all the other girls sprouted breasts between sixth and seventh grade, my chest was as flat as my back.
The other talk was about what to do if a cop stopped me.
Momma fussed and told Daddy I was too young for that. He argued that I wasn't too young to get arrested or shot.

What advice do you think Starr (& probably any young black kid) gets in this talk?

Slide 9 - Open vraag

"Starr-Starr, you do whatever they tell you to do, " he said. "Keep your hands visible. Don't make any sudden moves. Only speak when they speak to you."

I knew it must've been serious. Daddy has the biggest mouth of anybody I know, and if he said to be quiet, I needed to be quiet.
