"Cupping," because of the shape of the hand required to accomplish the act,
is the term used to describe the action of copping a feel of(f) the
(stereo)typically-hemispherical arse of the black woman. Though the act
may, indeed, be "seldom of use," among male adolescents at crowded house
parties, it is not seldom used.

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
