Derogatory and offensive term (much) used to describe an inhabitant of Belize. A contraction of 'Baboon'. e.g. 'I wouldn't leave that there mate, the Boons'll have it!' These were sage words indeed, as the Boons would invariably make off with all manner of kit. Proffed items hot on their list being Jungle Boots left out in the sun to dry (and fall to pieces).

Can also be used to mean all black persons in general.
