Egot (Alternatively: Igot) is a Filipino slang term derived from the word igorot. Igorot refers to the mountainous peoples of the Philippines. The term egot usually denotes one of dark skin tone and is commonly used in the states by Filipinos to refer to one of African descent.
egot is slang for igorot the term used to describe the collective indigenous people's of the mountanous cordillera region. It is derogatory because just as latinos/hispanics use the term indio to describe a very dark individual, it includes the connotation that indigenous/ darker/ non-european features are ugly and inferior.
