butu
 n.— «Whichever of these two political parties form the next government, Jamaica would have lost because they have clearly demonstrated an unwillingness and inability to stop political violence. We, Jamaicans, will therefore continue to be ridiculed by other Caribbean nationals and peoples of the world who consider us barbarians or as we say in Jamaica parlance “butu.”» —“Political propaganda on the hustings?” by Carlos King Jamaica Gleaner (Kingston) July 24, 2007.
