In North Miami Senior Highschool that I used to go to, "FOB" was mostly literally used to insult Haitians, Cubans, and other students that used to live in countries that are few thousand/hundred miles away from Florida (which could be reach by a boat).

FOB = freSh off the boAt

Immigrants that are new to the states and is unfamiliar with the language/culture. Why do they call it "fresh off the boat" well the reason is obvious. Back in the days before airplanes were invented, the only way to cross the ocean was by boat!

**Being a FOB isn't a bad thing. My parent's we're FOB's and their a-okay! To think of it in a more deeper way, all of our ancestors regardless of race were FOB's. They all immigrated to the US at one point, thus here we are today (generation xyz)! ^5

FOB= Fresh Off the Boat.

In my case, people usually use it on South Asians who try to act American {i.e. trying to act gangster or something}, but are trying too much and it's just weird. Most of the time, it's used on males...I've never seen it being used on a female. 0_o
