1. What a black person gets called if they don't speak slang, wear Sean John
, or freestyle. A pretty nasty and immature stereotype
. The retards who believe in this term characterize an oreo as being "black on the outside, white on the inside". Pretty lame. And yeah, I am black.
2. When two black guys double-team a white girl on each side.
"Yeah, I'm black, I play guitar, listen to rock music, and my jeans don't hang below my ass. I guess I'm an oreo."
what black kids at my school are called if they aren't intolerant and disrespectful trolls who hold up the hallway everyday in between class pushing pot and cutting the entire lunch line.
my friend dyson from geometry is called an oreo because he doesn't sell, talks to white people, respects other people and thinks about his future.
A good cookie; made up of two chocolate cookies with vinilla filling, and sometimes peanutbutter and can come in double stuffed and halloween variaties
You fatass, you ate the whole bag of oreoes
Term for African Americans that the black community is generally offended with for betraying their roots usually for dating caucasion girls, dressing too white, talking too white, etc. The term is branded OREO since they are "Black on the outside, White on the inside"
"Damn Marcus, have you seen Deon lately? The brother is a total Oreo, he's all drivin' a BMW with his white biatch. The brotha forgot where he came from!"
A insulting termed often used by blacks to derogate other blacks as "Black on the outside, white on the inside." White on the inside meaning anything from speaking proper english, getting good grades, liking music that isn't hip hop, rap or R&B and having a diverse group of friends.
"That girl is such an oreo. I can't believe she is listening to Metallica.
A Black African American person who, because he/she has the desire to make a success of their life, has gained the wrath of foolish Black African Americans who have decided to make a shambles of their own. Often OREO's are educated, intelligent, and the respect of the business community. Thus, in the eyes of the dominant Black African American community, they are "guilty" of being "White" on the inside.
Leroy: Damn, Rastus. That nigga
Raymond has hisself a BMW, a fine home and an upper management career with a Fortune 500 company... let's pop a cap
in that muthafuckin' oreo and steal his car!
Rastus: Uh... what does Fortune 500 mean?
A racist slur and schoolyard name based on racist stereotypes wrongly assuming that intelligence, articulateness, dapperness, and manners are traits of whites and not blacks. Therefore, a black who possesses these traits is an oreo, white on the inside and black on the outside. A corollary slur is banana, yellow (Asian) on the outside and white on the inside.
That black guy is smart, successful, well-mannered, and speaks standard English. He is an oreo.
1)A stereotype created by blacks to be used for other blacks who are "black on the outside, white on the inside". Black being their skin color, and white meaning to display characteristics of a "white" person, therefore "betraying their black roots".
These characteristics being (but not limited to), raised in an environment that's NOT the projects, speaking proper english/very limited use of slang, having an eclectic taste in music, having a diverse group of friends, being well-educated, being legitimately employed, not abusing the welfare system, being well-mannered and civilized, saves money for college instead of bling and cheap grills, and wearing nice clothes that are not Roca Wear, Sean Jean, Baby Phat and so on.
Most blacks confuse the "oreo" stereotype to being "bourgie", which is a very rude, stuck-up black, who thinks they are more "high-class" than they really are.
This stereotype is stupid, and apparently stems from the fear most nigg3rs have of success. Blacks believe that unless you are a talentless rapper, a professional athlete, or "gangsta", it is impossible to be successful without being an "oreo".
2) A painful word of irony that causes Spike Lee anguish, and historical black figures to turn over in their graves.
(PS) I'm black.
1) a: "I'm black. Even though I live in the projects, I maintain an A average, and speak properly. I have a few white friends, I don't really like watermelon or acting like an animal, and I prefer Gwen Stefani over Crime Mob. Apparently, this makes me an 'oreo' among my people."
b: The Characters Tom & Jazmine DuBois from the show "The Boondocks."
2) Our leaders suffered such great trials so we could get ahead in life. But even hundreds of years later, with the NAACP, the United Negro College Fund, the equal-opportunity employment act, and the affirmative action policy available to us, we still haven't made any progress. Successful black people are called "oreos".
