Gharrio is a newly-coined term in use in some cities in the southwestern corner of the continental United States. It is a portmanteau combining the word "ghetto" with the word "barrio" and is used generally to describe a community that has a substantial Hispanic population and a substantial African-American population residing closely together or to describe a gathering location with large percentages of Black and Latino persons in attendance.
Compton, California, is a perfect example of a gharrio.
