What does it mean when someone Latino calls you “essay” (sp?)?

"Ese" literally means "it," and it is an insult when used to a person. It means that you are less than human. The "ghetto boyz" may use it to mean "homeboy," but if you aren't one of the "gang," you're being dissed. By all means, never use it to a person you don't intend to fight immediately!
