"Bama"
Originated from Black youth in Washington DC.
1. Original meaning was "cant dress well" or "fashion misfit"


2. Now the word has a more general use meaning "person", as how Whites use "Dude"

1. That bama wearing a coat in the summer

2. Tell bama to meet me at the store.

Originally, a Bama was a southerner (from Alabama, for instance) trying to blend in up north, but was so obviously country that it didn't work.
Now it's more general and just means something funny-looking, unsophisticated or country as hell.
"Why is dude still wearing BUM Equipment? That's some Bama shit!"

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.
"Hey, did you hear those morons arrested those visiting executives from Honda and Mercedes in that little craphole state?
Yup, totally Bama."
