umm I came to america 11 years ago... but i don't think i'm a fob because... well yeah. i dont really have an accent or whatever.... and i'm not exactly 'fresh' off the boat..
i came by plane anyway.

^^ yup

back in the day, you came by boat.. and back in the day.. they'd stick a piece of paper to you with those letters.

nowadays.. it's used for
people new to america or its territories
people with a strong accent(no matter how long you've been in the states)
that kind of stuff

it basically has the same meaning, but if you have a really strong accent, sorry..but you're a FOB

....O_o.......So I'm gonna be an FOB five years from now........

EDIT: errrr......I better ask my auntie more about this.....O_o

btw fob is derogatory...

if u were called a fob..it's meant as an insult or a really cruel joke.
filipinos in the philippines have nothing to worry about because they can't be fobs if they are in their native land.

I always thought FOB is a Filipino that speaks English but still has a really heavy accent. Like instead of saying fish they say phhish.

Fall Out Boy? Lol...Wrong idea. >___>;;
Hmm. I wasn't born in a country
but I do know friends who have been made fun
because they weren't born in the U.S..
I don't understand why Citizens think they are better
than the ones who were born in countries.
We are all the SAME god dammit.

Fresh off the boat refers to immigrants and other people who came from a different country. It is used mostly on asians because they speak poor english and are made fun of by the FOB haters
