Usage notes[edit]

The using this word is often very frowned upon but most times it is used for describing people who act gangster to be cool. The term generally means a mix of the two definitions (a non-nordic middle eastern or north african who acts ganster to be cool). It's meaning generally depends on context just like the word bög but blatte is much more frowned upon using than bög.

The pejorative definition term has been reclaimed by some similar to the word nigger by african americans.
