The name “hippie” is not just a catchy title.
According to the American Heritage Dictionary, it is derived from a Greek word meaning “a person who takes up the cause of good and justice.”
The term has been around for over a century.
However, in the last few years, it has taken on a new meaning.
In recent years, the term has become associated with the “black culture” movement.
According the American Civil Liberties Union of Kentucky, the name is a play on “hippy,” a reference to the color of hippies, and is “associated with the social stigma of drug use and black people.”
As the ACLU of Kentucky explains, the “honey-colored hippie” movement “came to prominence in the 1960s and 1970s in New York City after a number of activists took up the fight against drug laws.”
This movement was inspired by a 1969 book titled “Hippy Manifesto,” which advocated a return to a time when “the most powerful, influential and privileged were black.”
The hippie movement was born in the mid-1960s, according to the book.
“Hipsters” became a term used to describe people who were hippie-minded.
They were people who believed that “a hippie’s life was better when he was free,” according to a 1969 essay written by the sociologist John A. Pritchard.
He said, “Hips and the rest of the hip-hop culture, which became a vehicle for African-American activists and social reformers to express themselves and challenge the status quo, came to be associated with those who embraced hippie ideals.”
The book “Hitchhiking” was published in 1969.
“Pritchard’s essay was written at a time of increasing racial tension in New Jersey and across the country, as a white woman was gunned down in the Stonewall Inn in 1969, and a young black man was lynched in Detroit in 1971,” the ACLU explained.
The book was an inspiration to other groups of people, including the black civil rights movement.
But the book was also a message for whites.
“The term ‘hippies’ became associated with racial tensions that would later erupt in the ’60s and ’70s,” the report states.
It also explained that “the hippie culture movement was a response to the growing tension between black and white activists.”
The movement came to an end in 1971, when the Supreme Court ruled in the landmark Brown v.
Board of Education case that segregated public schools were unconstitutional.
It was during the “Brown vs. Board” case that the term “hipper” was added to the dictionary.
In the 1990s, the hippie label has been used to refer to a group of people who have adopted “humble” or “gentle” attitudes.
“These attitudes are not limited to the ‘hoods’ of New York, San Francisco, and Oakland,” the dictionary states.
The definition of “hipster” has also been evolving.
In 2017, the Oxford English Dictionary published an article on the word “hips.”
The dictionary describes it as “an adherent of the social status quo.”
“HIPs are not only associated with status quo behavior but also a tendency to be passive, to be docile, and to not have an opinion of one’s own,” the Oxford dictionary explained.
“An individual is more likely to be HIP if he or she has been raised to believe that the current social status system is the only valid one.”
The Oxford English dictionary states that HIPs are also associated with “self-absorption and laziness” and “the idea that one has no place in the world and that one can never be a significant member of it.”
The definition also explains that HIP is associated with people who live by the motto “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”
The Hippie Handbook, a guide for young people, advises young people to be “hipped.”
It is a guidebook for young adults who want to learn more about how to make a better life.
“As you get older, the ‘hippy’ lifestyle becomes associated with a variety of negative associations, including drug use, sexual promiscuity, violence, and drug addiction,” the Hippie Guide explains.
However a recent study in the journal Alcoholism: Clinical and Experimental Research found that people who identify as hippies are not as likely to use drugs than people who do not identify as “hippers.”
According to a 2016 study by the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, “the majority of young adults identified as ‘hips’ had not used drugs in the past year and were more likely than other young adults to report that they were happy with their lives.”
The study also found that the people who identified as “naysayers” are less likely to take part in any type of substance use, and “had no history of substance abuse.”
