WEY or GUEY is derived from BUEY which translates as “OX” .

It is a fairly harmless word used when calling someone in friendly mock such as 'Que Ondas Wey' or 'Hey Wey' (WHAT UP FOOL).

Or it can be used as an insult such as, 'Eres Un Wey' (YOU’RE A STUPID FOOL).

When using Wey, use it only with friendlys, do not use it on people you don’t know.

So basically WEY = FOOL

ESE (literally = "that" as in that one).

Used as an attention getter like "Hey Man" or "Hey You" or "Hey Bud".

Shortened as in ESE VATO would be used for "That Guy" or "That Cat".

YES can be Si, Simon, Sabanas, and Cilindros among some of the terminology used, as well as the SPLANGLISH 'claro que yes' = 'simon que yes' as a common expression, used in the same spirit as we would say "of course", "sure", "you bet," etc.

Chicano is the Aztec word for "Mexicas" (Mexicans)

It came to be widely used during the late 40's & early 50's
used to describe pureness of the race by the Pachucos.

^ yea, I hear ya wolf. Things do get twisted through time.

By the way, Pantera is going to have a box set of all their videos, cds, a book and a 200 page photo book. Kinda like the one Nirvana just came out with. There is also a documentary video in the memory of Dime Bag.

Just thought you might be interested, brother.

Talk to you later.

When my students start throwing out words and phrases that I don't know, I always go to http://www.urbandictionary.com.

I try to keep pretty current with movies and trends, but I can't stomach MTV anymore, so I know I'm way outta the loop in some aspects.

I find out all sorts of things from the students themselves. I had no idea what a chickenhead was. I do now!

SHIT (mierda)
EAT SHIT (come caca)

MIERDA is a term used vulgarly as in English “SHIT”.
MIERCOLES (Wednesday) is the slang term for doo-doo.
CACA or POPO (poo-poo) is the term not used vulgarly.
CAGAR is the semi-crude verb for “SHITTING”.
CAGON and ZURRON both are used to mean “SHIT ASS” or a “SHI*TY PERSON”
CAGADA or CAGADERO = “CRAP” & “CRAPPER”
CAGADO means “SHITTED ON” but also used on someone who “SHIT IN HIS PANTS”
as in “HE’S SCARED SHITLESS”.

I started out teaching 9th-11th grade at an inner city high school and dealt with this on a daily basis. I feel like that I am here to help, not to judge.

My previous school had a full time gang awareness staff and they taught the teachers what to look out for. They dealt head on with the problems- I'm not sure how effectively, but they dealt with it. My new school ignores the problems. We are getting a lot of students whose parents are trying to escape the inner-city life with a simple change of scenery.

I joined this forum because my focus in teaching is at-risk students, and this increases my awareness of what I can do in my classroom.

MTV - I know, I know. I need all the help I can get. :)

I hear you ANESIS, what can i say, i love my people and the culture, it is hard to separate the vato loco from us, but it ain't all bad, you just got to understand the good in our ways, a lot of potential and a lot of heart. Don't dissapoint the young people, they are full of life and full of ideas.
They have a perception of our adult world and interpret in a "don't try to fool me kinda way", be true to them in the classroom, leave the mannerism to their parents and talk to them at their level - they'll respect you more for it - in our world "it is all about respect" and if we feel we ain't getting it - then "you" already lost the battle.
A lot of people try to change our ways, and i tell you straight up - don't go there, you ain't going nowhere like that - the trip is to exalt the gifts within our youth and support & guide them, we make our own decissions, but if you can help with the guidance - that goes a long way.

I'm struggling right now, my heart is in pain, my primo is facing 12 years Federal, up in Leavenworth Kansas tonight, leaving a very dear young lady and 2 beautiful daughters to fend for themselves. Gathering up the strenght to write him some words, it means a lot for him right now, a lil' bit of money and hopefuly some non-melancholy but inspiring words to get him though the hardship.
Man o man, the hardsh*t that i gone thru aint nada compared to 12 years locked up in a cage. Can't justify his choices in life, but i wonder sometimes just how much my b.s contributes to the youngsters in my familia making the wrong choices.

If you're for real, then my compliments to you sir/mam'.
Don't give up, "NEVER GIVE UP"!
