Ignorant or backwards in behavior, speech or act. The term comes from the nickname of the state of Alabama, one of the more impoverished and historically bigoted states in the South. Originally used to describe someone who dressed in a corny fashion by African American youths in the DC metro area, the term is gaining traction in the common parlance of the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast.

A short term for Alabama. The way many Alabamians actually refer to their home state.

A great place to live, filled with people who are kind, hard working, and helpful. It's often insulted by movies and television shows that depict Alabamians as good-for-nothing white-trash, when in all reality, Bama's full of very intelligent and talented people.
I have lived in Bama my entire life.
