I'm a spanish major, I have studied in spain and mexico for many years. The actual definition means " a person that was cut out of his family", comes from the word, " cortar, cortado,.. (to cut ). An orphan is diferent because a cholo was "cut" out of his family for being a dumbass, while an orphan was abonded at birth. That is why people born in latin america refer to cholos as cholos because they are always out on the street and cut out of their families for being trouble makers. Little kids and first generation hispanics don't know this word because their lack of knowledge of the spanish language. Now cholo is a way of living and dressing due to stupid media and hollywood! "cheech and chong"
Did you know, Cholos don't even exist in mexico or latin america, The cholo concept was born in the U.S. To most hispanics and latinos, cholos are a piece of shit group that give bad names to other hispanics. They are a disgrace to hard working and educated hispanics and latinos.
