From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
For other uses, see naco.
Naco (fmn. naca) is a pejorative word often used in Mexican Spanish to describe bad-mannered and poorly educated people. Recently, however, the word has been reclaimed by Mexican hipsters, particularly in Mexico City and in other places where the word has been popularized in fashions. A naco is usually associated with lower socio-economic classes, but could also sometimes include the nouveau-riche.
From a year ago on Yahoo answers:
"My sister uses that word all the time. It means ghetto or low class. People use it to describe someone beneath them."
