Boong is a racist and derogatory word used to describe Aboriginal Australian people.
Contrary to what is already written, 'Boong' is derived from the word 'Boonga-boonga' which is actually an Eastern Australian Aboriginal word (Eora
People for example) that means arse or bum and was originally used by the Aboriginal people as an insult to the colonisers
Many Aborignal languages do not have swear words and, in Aboriginal Culture, the arse is the most disgusting part of the body. The Aborignal People would taunt the europeans and call them Boonga's (whilst flashing their black arses at them 'Braveheart ' movie style). Once the europeans realised what they were being called they turned it around and began using the word to describe Aboriginal People.
