In basketball, a shot from outside the three-point line.

This is the proper way to describe a shot from a distance, as "from downtown" isn't. "Downtown", in this context, is right under the basket.

Get the from the 'burbs mug.
When someone went to a school with a ethnic make-up of 99% white Christians. “Build the wall” and “Heil Hitler” are common chants heard within their updated facilities that hold privledged suburban teens. They are usually named things such as “Macchiato” and “Kale”. Some kids try to be thugs and vape juuls, even though they’d shit their pants in fear if they tried going to an inner-city school. Since these kids don’t know oppression, some label themselves as pansexual non-binaries and they pretend to act ghetto. Others harass the single gay teacher because they have nothing else better to do.
