Anyone else hate that word? Everytime I hear it, I get an angry chill down my spine, I literally cringe.
Do the people who use this word know it's meaning and how degrading it can be to black men? I have a feeling most do not.
 
urbandictionary.com
mandingo:

1. An African male who knows that he has a huge peenis that can hit all night and keep a female comin back fo more

2. black man with huge c*ck
 
Disapprove

Ive never heard anyone use it before, but yes it is a bit cringeworthy, I hate it when people use words like this which refer to race/sex its annoying!

I've heard it used, it means big, strong, sexy, black man. In all respects not just their penis.

thank you EQ for stating this fact here. I hate when slang overtakes the bona fide definition of a word to the extent that people forget its true meaning. Angry The fact that the word "mandingo" is even listed in the urban dictionary proves how bastardized it has become. Very, very sad and I don't think the West African people to whom the name rightly belongs would consider it a compliment either.

True, Gigi, people throwing that term around today are not using it honorably.

It makes me think of large man and not necessarily penis size. I forgot about the Mandika people in Africa though so thanks for the lesson. I feel a little bit enlightened!

mandingo is actually a bad word? wow i didn't know that. my dad is half mandingo half fulani. mandingo/mende/mandinka are one of the biggest tribes in west african countries. i didn't even know mandingo was used as a slang word. interesting, how did this uh word come to be degraded like that?

There is a book and a movie called Mandingo. It was about an African slave that was a Mandingo, whose slave master try to turn him into a boxer. Anyways, in the movie the slave owner's wife feels neglected by her husband and have an affair with the slave.

The slang term is more than a black man with a big penis, it also refers to black men who have sex with white women. There is a whole sub-genre of porn where white men seek out black males to have sex with their wives. They're even "mandingo" tours were white women go down to the Caribbean or to Africa looking for black men.
