I asked milady what means Chopa, and she says it is a maid who works in the home of rich people, usually gringos' homes. SO what does it mean as used here on DR1?

Dominican equivalent of "red-neck" or "white trash" or "tacky".

It come from the old scottish saying "" fill your boots sonny" come to think of it that might be about sex, but no idea why they use that expression or what the boots would be filled with

I don't like the word "Chopo" as it's discriminatory, frequently used by people who feel they are better than the rest of the world...
This world was born in SD city back in the 70s, color have nothing to do with it. Can remember when I was attending HS classes in a private school back in the 80s... I had to fight many times for been addressed of Chopo by some of fellows Capitalenos friends just because I original from Santiago "Cibaeno"... People from SD believe the rest of the Dominicans are "country people" Campesinos or Chopos.
