An offensive, racist word
for a Latino person (i.e. Mexico, Puerto Rico, South America).
It was originally
spelled spick, a contraction of "Spanish Mick" (Mick
being slang for an Irishman). Since both Irish and Hispanics are Catholic, as opposed to Anglo-American
Protestants, people stereotyped Spanish and Irish into
group based on their faith, hence Spanish Mick, or spick.
