A derogatory term used to describe hispanic people. It derives from combining the word spanish
. During the rush of immigration in the early twentieth century in America
, people thought the Irish were weird for being Catholic
(since everybody already here was protestant) When hispanic
s started showing up the majority were Catholic, thus they were viewed as spanish speaking catholics like the Irish micks
1-"Hey look at those Micks going to church to praise that man with the funny hat....they're speaking...spanish?"
2-"ahhh yess yes I've heard of those , spanish speaking Micks, Spicks they're called."
