Skinhead Terminology

boot party
beating a person up after first ganging up and out numbering the person. Skinheads (like most people) are too cowardly to attack one on one.

a fellow skinhead.

a non-skinhead. This term is often used in confrontations when the outcome of an actual physical altercation is anything but certain.

kick ___ ass
to beat someone up. This is the usual way for skinheads to deal with any sort of problem, since more cognitive methods are difficult for skinheads.

witty, sarcastic, ironic, sardonic, or having redeeming literary value. In the anti-intellectual skinhead world, "smart" is a bad thing for something to be.
