wigger, white person trying to be a gangster

not exactly a chav, but closest I guess.

That's pretty much it. You can delete thread now. It's been done.

I'd say a wigger is probably the closest thing, although from the stories I've heard about most Chavs, wiggers are very rarely that violent. They're all talk.

I think people from England call Americans "yanks" or something. I don't really know how that term appeared and I'm not even sure if it's supposed to be offensive or not. I don't know why people call other people "chavs" either...

EDIT: Maybe I misunderstood the question. How about gangster? There are many gangs in America where they are insanely violent.

chav alert

they have infiltrated us.
#11
They exist, but not in great numbers. There are surely people who think they are totally awesome black people (but they are totally not awesome white people) but they do not have a designated name. Among few these are simply "wiggers," yet they do not get their own clique, per say.

i dont really get what chav means. i dont think we have them here.

I don't think wigger is right.

redneck trailer trash **** is probably the closest to Chav you'll get in the US.

Chavs are VIOLENT?!!11!? please explain!


real chavs are, the ones that do like gang wars and ****, we had a few run ins with them as well, although no weapons were involved

I don't see why everyone always says wiggers are the chav equivalent. What about the actual black people who act that way?

I'd say the US trailor trash would be the equivalent of the UK perception of pretty muh anyone in the benefits system.

i.e. poor, uneducated, promiscuous and proud of it.

As I say, 'perception' only.

People who are white trying to act black, aka wigger. As already stated.

Hispanics, Blacks, and sometimes Asians are fine gangsta, though, for some reason.

Oh yes, we have many of them. They are predominantly comprised of Blacks, Asians and Hispanics. Most of the time they come from very poor neighborhoods either in the main cities or on the outskirts.

Most of them are drug addicts and will do ANYTHING to get more. They will beat you to within an inch of your life for whatever money you have, and if you do not have any, they will just kill you. They usually carry handguns and are very sensitive, so when your around the bad areas, watch what you say cause they will shoot you for saying the wrong thing.

For those who say wiggers... they are just a bunch of stupid, white middle class republican kids who think that just because they watch MTV, listen to "gangsta" rap and wear clothes that are 3 sizes too big that it makes them "Ghetto" If ANY of those pussies had a gun shoved in their faces and forced to eat the muzzle, they'd s*hit their pants and run crying to mommy.

The great thing about being so culturally diverse is that we have TONS of different "chav" type people.

Gangsta White Kids - usually are all talk, but at least where I live they have become bolder/dumber and started carrying/using weapons. They think its cool to jump people

Gangsta Niggas/Mexicans- same as above, but far more dangerous as some of them are actually in gangs and far more are carrying weapons.

Angry Hicks - Under educated, smelly, angry... a very bad combo.

Hardcore Kids - Sometimes, when in numbers, they like to go to shows and be total dicks.

Tough-Guy Jock - Kind of like a chav, but usually they're all talk.

All sort of tools.

I'm an american and I use the word "Chav".

I like it for a few reasons:

1) It's a very broad word. I can use it for wiggers, black and hispanic gang affiliates and red-neck folks. It very convient when the groups are intermingled for some reason, so I only have to say one word to discribe the group.
Example:

"Those ****ing blacks and rednecks."
"Those ****ing chavs." (Saves two words)

2) I it's less racist. So I can insult people, but not feel like a biggot.

Examples:

N-Word - Implies Black People
Spic - Implies Hispanics or Latino's
Wigger/Red Necks - Whites

Chav - Any race as long as they are poor and violent

3) I can use this word to talk about these people around them and they don't realize that I am talking about them.
Example:

Saying, "Why the hell do those dirty mexicans always hang around here", results in my ass getting kicked.

Saying, " Why the hell do those dirty chavs always hang around here", results in a confused look and is then ignored.

So yes there are Chavs in america.

Pretty much this. In my area, lot's of people (who aren't necessarily racist, but it's not something I would say) like to say there are black people and then there are n*****s, the difference being that there's nothing wrong with blacks but the n*****s (people who act ghetto/gangsta) are annoying as hell.

It's not something I'll say, but if you were to say wiggers = wannabe n*****s, then you'd be pretty close.

Edit: ^ I like what the above user said, think I'll have to start on that.

Here in Fredericton, New Brunswick, the equivalent is probably Native Americans. God I hate how they're so frickin' huge, and travel in packs, so nobody can touch them. They act all high and mighty everywheres. At school, in the mall, in the gym. Its ridiculous, because our class was talking to teachers about it and the teacher said no other place had this problem.
