During the Vietnam War the term "bloods" was used by both black and white American soldiers to denote black soldiers. It was not a derogative term, nor was it a derivative of the LA street gang and its subsets. White soldiers (occasionally called "rabbits") who were deemed worthy by black soldiers would share the term "blood" as synonymous with "brother." The term was most often found among American infantry units, where the infantrymen were called "grunts."
One of the bloods got wasted today.
