Im black and I want to talk about the TRUE meaning of the word "MAYATE".


I heard that the word Mayate, came from a little BLACK bug that gets on mexicans nerves......in Mexico

The word for homosexual is "maricon". I think that's what you're talking about.

Not to start a debate but, how can you say the actual meaning to mayate is the word "nigger" but then go it REALLY means A LITTLE BLACK BEETLE........Your just saying what you think it means, not what it truly means and standing by that only.

Damn folks is in here being thick headed and shit.

Mayate LITERALLY means "little black bug"

But in CONTEXT it means "n!gger"

Just like LITERALLY eggplant means eggplant

But in CONTEXT it means "n!gger"

Doesn't even mean anything like homosexual LOL @ that BS

It is my experience that non-gang affiliated Mexicans older than say, 25, tend to know the term as a derrogatory towards homosexuals (it does not imply a specific race). This is one of those words that means different things to different people, even those that speak the same language. COLD BEAR is right, it's all about context.

then your experience is wrong bro.....you may have the word maricon and mayate mixed up......or maybe the older than 25 mexicans you been experimenting with have the word mixed up

Its a flying beetle. Although some are Black in color(mostly seen in the states). In MEX They are mostly of green color, and little kids use them as pets, by tying a string on their body under the "wings?" and you "walk" them. but in Mex they dont use the term "mayate" to referr to blacks. they use "morenito"(darkish).

The word mayate comes from mayatl, a nahuatl word (language of the Aztecs) which simply means black beetle or scarab. In ancient Kemet 'mayate' was literally the face of the Egyptian Creator God 'Kepher' that brought himself into existence!

Its peculiar how some modern day surs would try to twist that word into a negative, no doubt something left over or taught to them by their Conquistador Masters!

There's also irony in the fact that each time a sur calls a black man 'mayate' that they are actually associating that black man with a God that is self-made, bows to no other, and is the First Created!

Amun, Atum, Khepera, RA. One who made himself millions,
Ptah-Tatenen of Zep Tepi. You made yourself of your own hands. by your own will.

... of course, those who speak spanish simply say "Mayate".

I have also read that the conquistadors called the people of Mexica mayates. It does mean n.i.g.g.e.r., but it can be looked at as the same if used as such.
