Refers to the person you are talking to or talking about. It takes the place of words like "fool,""nigga,"and "dog" when used on the streets by youth. In 2007 it is mostly used by gang members or by people refering to Mexican American gang members, but not exclusively. The word was used long before the Mexican Mafia, or surenos, existed. Pachucos, Mexican American zoot suiters of the 1940s, used the word ese in Los Angeles, Tucons, El Paso, San Jose, Albuquerque, Gilroy to name a few documented locations. It is true that todays' Mexican American gang members from northern California, aka nortenos, refrain from saying the word ese. This is because "ese" is how you pronounce the letter "S" in Spanish and they take that as referring to "S" for surenos, Mexican American gang members belonging to the 13, the Mexican Mafia that originated in southern california but is now in northern california and other U.S. states.

Bascially the same thing as "nigga" but instead it's structured for mexicans. Avetards and some intellectuals like to refer to an ese and an essay as the same thing because it's pretty fun.
Hey, I got an essay due tomorrow for my TardU class, can you help me fuck this ese up?

all these other definitions are wrong. ese is used mostly by MEXICAN gang bangers. ESE is used by Surenos. If you believe every Hispanic ethnicity uses the word ese, then take a trip up to northern California.

ESE means the letter "S" which stands for SURENO or southsider. So that's why Mexicans that are surenos use it.
Yo homes most of you people are wrong. MEXICANS are the ones that use the word ESE. Some of us use it instead of saying the following:

foo,nigga,homes,leva,etc.
