What is a jive turkey?
Jive turkey was a derogatory slang word in African American Vernacular English, used to refer to someone who was unreliable, made empty promises, or who was full of bluster. The insult became widely known among white Americans in the 1970s, particularly via television comedies (e.g., The Jeffersons). The term has been used by later television characters (e.g., Homer Simpson) in order to demonstrate that they are out of touch with modern youth trends, culture, and language. Jive turkey, however, was already falling into disuse when it was spoken by supposedly "hip" characters in the 1970s, such as George Jefferson, and later in 2008 by Cornelius Banks (Tim Meadows) in the movie "Semi-Pro." The humorous/interesting sound of the term has also resulted in it being use in complimentary fashion, often by those who don't know what it means and so make up their own meaning. The term has also been translated to mean a white person who can dance. Turkey, being white meat, represents the white person. Jive is a form of dance.

It is right in the middle of the world connecting Europe and Asia. Answer Turkey is a bridge between Asia and Europe. It is surrounded by the Mediterranean Sea, Aegean… Sea, Sea of Marmara and he Black Sea. Turkey also borders Greece, Bulgaria, Iran, Iraq, Syria, Armenia, Russia, and Georgia and the capital of Turkey is Ankara, Turkey. Geographically, the border between Asia and Europe is the Bosphorus, a strait of water that joins the Mediterranean Sea to the Black Sea. This runs right through the city of Istanbul. Therefore, both Istanbul and the whole nation of Turkey are both in Asia and Europe. The majority is actually in Asia. But politically, Modern Turkey considers itself to be an active European Nation. It has applied for membership of the European Union and is a member of NATO. It's football (soccer) team play in the European qualifying of World Cup and European trophies. It is a member of UEFA. Turkey also takes part in the annual Eurovision song contest. Historically, Turkey is much more of an Asian country. It was part of the cradle of civilization where the first cities appeared ( making it much like neighboring Iraq and Iran). It was known in antiquity as Asia Minor. But its colonization by the Ancient Greeks brought it into the European sphere of influence. The establishment of Byzantium (Constantinople, now Istanbul) as the second city of the Roman Empire made it very European. The capture of the city by the Ottoman Empire (Asian Arabs) brought it back into Asia. The overthrow of greek invaders in the early 20th Century by the followers of Kemal Attaturk allowed Turkey to develop as an emerging democracy and has since, becoming increasingly allied to Europe.
