The most vile racial slur that can be used against an Italian-American. Refers to the Guinea Coast of Africa; using this slur is a very offensive way of implying that Italian-Americans are non-whites (something we tend to get very defensive about!!).
Unlike the "N-word", which African-Americans sometimes use to address each other, no Italian-American would ever address another Italian-American using this word. Nor would they use the word "wop
" (also offensive, but not in a racial way). HOWEVER, it IS common for Italian-Americans to refer to each other as "dago
"; this is used the same way that blacks use the N-word with each other.
I'm not going to do business with that fat guinea bastard.
Ginney/Guinea Italians Pronounced "gi-nee." Came from "Guinea Negro" and originally referred to any Black or any person of mixed ancestry. This dates back to the 1740's. By the 1890s it was being applied to Italians--almost certainly because they tend to have darker skin than Anglo-Saxons/Germans. By 1911 the term began being applied to Hispanics, although the reference to Italians is the most common.
Surely you did not call him a guinea. I mean really, do you even know what that means?
Slang term for an Italian. Like the "N" word to a black guy. Others include Wop.

Italian racial slur; Only for One Italian to define another Italian. As Black People use the word N*gga.
Guineas and Guidos are NOT the same thing.
People usually say, Guidos are Italian. Not true. Guidos are basically wanna-be Italians. Men that dress like the stereotypical Italian or Italian American just to receive recognition by others. Many people tend to call Italians "Guido". Best bet is to just not call an Italian a Guinea if your NOT Italian, unless you want a pissed of Italian wanting to kick your ass.
