Les Deux Mondes

On sait, par exemple, que le plus substantiel journal de Paris aux années trentaines du dix-neuvième siècle était nommé Les Deux Mondes. C’était l’organ du gouvernement du jour. Alors, à expliquer le significance du division du monde en deux parties, nous avons avec nous l’estimable Monsieur Miguel Cabron, roi de la rue:

Aie mon in your wurl you talk about Red and Blue, you be talkin’ bout the Republicans an them other ones, I fugget the name

But our wurl the Red be the Bloods, see, and the Blue is the Crips.

See dey be two worlds.
