Bourgeoisie (pronounced "bor-jwah-zee") is a term used to refer to rich, land-owning or Capitalist people on the upper-class of society, whose status comes from wealth. The bourgeoisie play a very important role in communism, as they are seen as the class enemies of the proletariat, and will be exterminated / exiled / otherwise segregated in any communist system. Just look up Russia in the 1930s...

Sometimes communist countries have killed their most able citizens or forced their able citizens into less productive roles through this ideology, see Pol Pot.
