Slide 4 - Tekstslide

In this book you’ll find many references to Tupac, because Angie Thomas was inspired by Tupac, his lyrics and his way of life. 

The title of the book is the first reference to Tupac: The Hate U Give, or in short, THUG. 

Slide 5 - Tekstslide

The title of the book is a reference to THUG LIFE, an acronym for "The Hate U Give Little Infants Fucks Everyone". This acronym was made popular by American rap artist 2Pac.
2Pac is known for his rap music, poetry and activism against inequality.

Discussion question 1
1. As Starr and Khalil listen to Tupac, Khalil explains what Tupac said “Thug Life” meant. Discuss the meaning of the term “Thug Life” as an acronym and why the author might have chosen part of this as the title of the book. In what ways do you see this in society today? (Chapter 1, p. 21)

Discussion question 2
2. Chapter 2 begins with Starr flashing back to two talks her parents had with her when she was young. One was about sex (“the usual birds and bees”). The second was about what precautions to take when encountering a police officer (Chapter 2, p. 24). Have you had a similar conversation about what to do when stopped by the police? Reflect upon or imagine this conversation.
