Tyler Perry’s Bruh Plot: What is it About?
The half-hour dramedy follows four college friends who are currently in their 30s. But they still act as each other’s support system while individually navigating through life’s ups and downs. According to BET, “Bruh” is a slang that became a part of modern culture — thanks to the Black-Greek heritage. Bruh means someone who is a very close friend, almost like a brother. For John, Tom, Mike, and Bill, the word aptly describes their strong relationship. BET sheds further light on the story in its official synopsis, which goes as follows:
“Whether fulfilling career dreams or finding love, these four college buddies now in their thirties find themselves learning to stand on their own two feet while leaning on each other for support and guidance. Sometimes their love is tough and their honesty brutal, but they manage to see each other through every scenario with levity and laughter.”
Society might have evolved but there are still many stereotypes regarding friendships between men of color. And ‘Bruh’ attempts to eradicate this belief by focusing on a healthy, productive brotherhood.
