A derogatory term used to describe hispanic people. It derives from combining the word spanishand mick. During the rush of immigration in the early twentieth century in America, people thought the Irish were weird for being Catholic (since everybody already here was protestant) When hispanics started showing up the majority were Catholic, thus they were viewed as spanish speaking catholics like the Irish micks, Spicks.
Protestant 1-"Hey look at those Micks going to church to praise that man with the funny hat....they're speaking...spanish?"
Protestant 2-"ahhh yess yes I've heard of those , spanish speaking Micks, Spicks they're called."
