---I have friends whom are of Jamaican, Haitian, and South African descent respectively. They do use the term "ire" in the same fashion to all of the prior posts to mine.
But, I suspected this, and at least through them; that they also use it in a different condanation. They also use it when they are 'Ire" as in feeling irate, irrated. I have asked them personally; and have witnessed their reactions they are expressing while under diress.
They have explained to me when I inquired just to find out for myself; that it has a dual meaning; for them at least. I am not sure how prevelant this is in regard to statistical determinations. But, this is what they told me. They surely used it freely and openly while seriously irritaded and upset. So, in a nutshell, from what I have seen, it is for some a dual meeting term.
It is similar to the Non Racist Trad Skins. (or at least it used to when it was more participated in.) In addition, other groups such as S.H.A.R.P.'s (S.kinheads A.gainst R.acial P.rejudice.); when they use the dual meaning term of 'Suss". It can mean to engage in "sussing one out", or "seeing if they have the "suss."; in order to determine another's validity to the subculture whether they're "poseurs" ; or the "real deal." It can also commonly be heard from conception used as "He's got the "suss" ; in turn, insinuating a seemingly sounding contradictory statement as it would mean to "declare, question and affirm" anothers' validity. To be suspect.
Hope this makes sense and be helpful to some. sorry for the length; just wanted to state and look forward to any feedback regarding the meaning of this term/verbal expression "ire."
