CROSS BREED

Unread post by Lonewolf » January 4th, 2005, 4:04 pm

WHAT WORDS DO YOU KNOW OF, THAT ARE A CROSS MIX OF BLACK AND MEXICAN WORDS?

For example:LOC/LOK and LOCO.

And for that matter, any other cross between the races.

No dis' to no one, I couldn't think of a better title for the topic, that's all.

I think latino culture used Homie first. Old school it was just "homes". Now everybody uses this term.

Correct me if I'm wrong.

Also, along with that, who was using the terms ‘Dog’ and ‘Fool’ as terms first?
Not sure but Feria – Fetti (used in the bay)? I always thought these words could be related.
‘Zooted’ – Get zooted…Zoot suit

The game ‘Acey-Deucey’, has been popular in the US military for a long time. All types of of languages have names for the number two that sound like “Deuce”, and names for 3 that sound like “Tray”. I think numbers are too deep to be pinned as coming from one culre only.

You mean ‘Fetti’ like money? I think from Spanish slang for money ‘Feria’.
