What does keemo mean as in the movie, Stand and Deliver? The students called the teacher, keemo.
I don't have the correct spelling. I have wondered if this was from the Lone Ranger. Did kids in Los Angeles who spoke Spanish as their first language use that term in the 80's'
This came form cowboy hero comic strip that was made into a radio show, movies and also a tv show. I remember watching it when I was a child back in the 1950's. It was called "The Lond Ranger". The Lone Ranger was a cowboy hero that wore a mask on his face. He had a Native American sidekick named Tonto. Tonto used to call The Lone Ranger something that sounded like "ke-mo sah-bee" meaning "wise one."
quemo in Spanish means: I burn.
I will try to find out what exactly they say. Do you have the correct spelling'
