The word cholo means half breed, like mestizo, only in a more deragatory sense. Used to label Mexicans in the U.S. who neihter fit in with U.S. or Mexican culture, and flamboyently flaunt and take pride in that fact. An extension of Pachuquismo, cholos are hated in both U.S. and Mexico. Our styles have derived from this attitude as a way of expression and identification.
Simon! I'm a cholo y que puto.

A LATINO gangster not only mexican or mexican american. They are usually born in the US from parents born in Central America or Mexico but also other parts of Latin America or can be themselves from other countries. They have shaved heads wear baggy clothes and have tattos.
The cholos from la mara salvatrucha have tattoos on their face.

It stands for Chu Only Live Once. Basically its the Mexican version of Y.O.L.O. can also be used as a way to show how Mexican you are.
Calling something by "dame esa chingadera" instead of its real name.

In the South American sense, cholo means a person of mixed Native American/Hispanic heritage; a mestizo. The female equivalent is chola.
