Portuguese slang for «portuguese». It started out by being a derogatory term used by the African rebels during the Portuguese colonial wars (1960's - 1974). Ironically, it is now a word that overly patriotic portuguese use to refer to themselves.
«Estão ali mais tugas.» - Look, more portuguese people over there.
