THUG CODING


Nerds, Niggas, Geeks, Thugs...what do THESE words have in common?
It appears that these words were first used as derogatory terms against smart people.   

While my writing style may be obscure, and my grammar outlaw, I will communicate with you with these blog posts. 

Although our Thug Code family organization is technical in nature, we are real, live human beings. The philosophy and culture of our group will be laid out and all are welcome to build upon it.

The terms that we will discuss all seem to have something in common. They ALL started as negative, derogatory words and slurs. Now...these words have a more acceptable usage (for the most part).

Let's get into the details.

I first found the use of the term NERD by Dr. Seuss. The good ol "DOC" was also a racist propaganda artist for World War II. As we start to learn and talk together, we may find that some of our heroes and sheroes were not all that they were made to be. Taking negative words and turning them into positive words is what this blog post is about. A part of changing the world is changing the vocabulary and meanings of words...

Taking negative words and turning them into positive words is what this blog post is about. A part of changing the world is changing the vocabulary and meanings of words... 

"In October of the following year, Newsweek carried an article about the latest slang that includes the word nerd. "In Detroit," it notes, "someone who once would be called a drip or a square is now, regrettably, a nerd, or in less severe cases, a scurve." -https://www.merriam-webster.com/words-at-play/word-history-nerd

T
he MEANING of the word "nerd" may not have really changed...but, BEING a nerd seems to have some incredible perks by association. In the world of TECH where many people self identify as a nerd, the company that nerds keep extends to every part of the GLOBAL tech sector

The US tech industry market is worth around $1.6 trillion. The tech industry is expected to reach a $5 trillion market value by the end of 2021.

So, as you can see...the NERDS are a BIG part of the people actually ruling the world. 

What does the term NERD mean to you?
