A pejorative term used by middle and upper class Mexican people to denigrate those who do not conform to their ideal version of Mexican society. A Naco is either a poor, mestizo or indigenous person, or a noveau riche social climber.
The self-identifying "naco" rejects all idealized versions and expectations imposed on him or her by Mexican society and finds comfort, wisdom and guidance in life from the long standing strains of resistance to assimilation and acculturation that his or her forebears engaged in since the 16th century.
I'm not going to hang out with that bunch of naco friends of yours that wear lizard skin boots and belt buckles. Last week your compadre Chato peed in our rosebushes in the front yard when you all got drunk...
I'm keepin it real naco, fuck all this fresa, malinchista bullshit, y que viva Mexico cabrones...
Maybe from “Totonaca”, a Mexican tribe of the Pre-Columbian era-
Classless, pretentious, obtrusive, the Mexican version of white trash. Mostly blue-collar undereducated people, but can be applied even to a wealthier crowd (nouveaux riches, snob). They’re characterized for having no respect for others. Their only source of information is television. Males usually are truly soccer fans and females are telenovelas (soaps) fans. Most nacos like to name their sons with anglo-saxon names. It may be used as an adjective for both persons and objects.
“El Kevin cree que poniendole neon a su coche va a ser mas rapido, se ve bien naco.”
“Kevin thinks that neon lights on his car will make it faster, it looks so naco.”
