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.

Though filmed in Austin, the actors in Machete speak like a bunch of Cholos.
