Crazy White Boy

Crazy White Boy

The term "Crazy White Boy" (as well as its initials, CWB) is a phrase used generically by some white supremacists (often in tattoo form) to identify themselves.  It is also commonly used as a name for white gangs.  There have been a number of Crazy White Boy/s gangs in different places around the United States, in the streets or in prisons, over the years.  Most are small, locally-oriented, and unconnected to other, similarly named groups.  Variants of this term include Insane White Boy/s and Vicious White Boy/s.  In addition to the initials CWB, some may use the slang term C-Dub or C-Dubs to refer to Crazy White Boy; the "Dub" stands for W. 

It is important to note that use of these terms is not limited to white supremacists; an individual may get a Crazy White Boy tattoo without necessarily being racist or an extremist, but rather simply because the phrase sounds "cool."  Similarly, not every gang that has used the name Crazy White Boys has been white supremacist.  Consequently, examples of this symbol should always be carefully judged in the context in which they appear.
