Is "chinorrodeloscojones" racist? Got a complaint the name was highly inappropriate but no good way to check-

Thanks for your help!

What's the context?

I think the simple answer is "probably".

It's 4 words really, and I'm betting the way "chinorro" is being used is vernacular since it seems at a minimum to have something to do with debris. "También conviene limpiarlos y retirar cualquier chinorro que se haya quedado introducido en la banda de rodadura".

For example means "always clean and remove any trash that's stuck in the treads."

Anything using "cojones" is probably not good.

Eduardo would know.

de los cojones probably makes it even worse.

I don't know what chinorro means, but I'm betting it's more offensive than racist.

Eduardo would know.

¿Where did you acquire that coarse stuff?
"Chinorro" is slang for Chinese? New one on me. I was angling towards a genital insult (between the other meaning for "chinorro" and the obvious words.)

after a quick search (never heard "chinorro" before in my life) its an ugly way of refering to something Asian Chinese


"de los cojones" well, cojones it's a bad word..

according to the Dictionary a "chinorro" is a little stone, like a pea...

Hence the comment in my post about removing the debris from the tire tread.

No expert but I think it is likening someone's cojones to something small, dried up and hard.

so in conclusion it's more of an self-insult than racis

This may make sense in context- poster was unhappy about this mainland China source frame breaking. One complaint said his name was a racist slur.

with that info I'm sure its racist, the few places where I found that word was in "fine watches" forums, and people where talking about cheap chinese knock-offs.


Racist and offensive. :mad:

My textbook and Mexican coworker learned Spanish has never heard this word.

I don't think it's "real...". I sense a vernacular pun -- perhaps a portmanteau of "chino" (Chinese / Asian) and "chamorro?"

But, yep, we all know cojones.

Eduardo, though, could he mean "ballsy" by "de Los cojones?"
