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.

Cholo does not mean a "Mexican gangster" and it doesen't necassarily mean Mexican or Chicano. A Cholo is Spanish for Mestizo. A Mestizo is a person of mixed European and Native American heritage. Many Mestizos are Salvadoran, Honduran, Peruvian,Guatamalan, Mexican and Ecuadorian.
Some people don't even know what the word means and they post unreliable definitions.

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.
