"The Hate U Give" receives its title from the rapper Tupac Shakur, who created the "THUG LIFE" acronym, standing for 'the hate u give little infants f**ks everybody' and regarding the cycle of societal violence.

Most people assume this to be the talk that many adolescent teenagers receive from their parents about sex, but for Starr's family and many others, "the talk" is a declaration of racism in America.
