Originally used to describe Spanish sailors in the 18th and 19th century by the British navy, it is now a derogatory term used in the US to refer to Italians or Italian Americans, especially those recently immigrated and not yet assimilated to American culture. Still refers to Spanish or Hispanic people in current British English. Not commonly used anymore, mostly seen in early 20th century literature.

Dago, Only used by italians in the same context as nigga and friend also used by others as an offensive word against italians. Sometimes it is used to refure to other latin peoples but only out of ignorance.

Similiar words:
Paesan- Homeboy/Countryman
(Any other words are incorrect or racist like guinea, wop, daigo, wog all false degrading words that italians dont address other italians with)
Ay Dago! Ay Paesan wat u doin!
