2.
Someone who thinks that they're African American. It originates from the word mayate, which is a derogatory term used by mexicns to describe dark-skinned people.

Also intertwines with an issue of Brown Pride between Mexican gangbangers. (I.E., Surenos accuse many Nortenos of acting and thinking that they're black, instead of representing Brown Pride like they should. And a common term that Surenos use for these sort of Nortenos is the word "Mayatero."
Ese, look at that norputo. He's a punk ass mayatero, kicking it with all those pinche mayates!
