The TAP Boyz (an acronym for The Arabian Posse), was a Chicago-based Palestinian American street gang or self-described "movement" formed on the corner of 63rd & Kedzie Street in 1992.

It was formed in response to anti-Arab sentiment from rival gangs; the movement's goal was to protect the Arab-American community from being attacked in racially motivated assaults precipitated by the First Gulf War. Their gang colors are white and red. The gang symbol is a five pointed star.
