This week's dive into our Buzzword's Busted phrase "I Got Gypped" actually stems from a word I (April) used last week in the podcast.  This phrase is so common to me; I've heard it and I've said it whenever I feel cheated out of something.  Discover the racial epitaph behind this phrase- the history will blow your mind, and like we've been saying: "when you know better, you do better."

"The hardest part in the aftermath has been determining how to raise my voice and protest. I find that my emotive side is ready to scream at the world while my internal deliberative voice is telling me to "mind my manners" or "remember you still need your job."

" That no matter what in 2020, we’re still treated as less than animals. That when I take off my military uniform I am George Floyd or Ahmaud Arbery.&...

"Ok," he said. "I'll check in on the kids."

Just then, we heard a loud POP POP POP POP POP ricochet throughout our neig...
