A north-of-the-border Mexican that has it in his mind that just because he isn't white means he's black and doesn't realize that in fact he doesn't look any less stupid than those chavs in England. (Interesting how all south-of-the-border Mexicans consider themselves "white" and the NOB ones call themselves "brown"). A cholo steals his style from black rappers (bling-bling, low-riding pants, fake ebonics and occasional cornrows) and rednecks (wifebeaters) and takes a Kurt Cobain-style flannel shirt, only fastens the top button and calls it original fashion. Can be seen loitering at the mall or outside of Wal-Mart scaring little children or in the back of church intimidating grandmas (why even bother being there in the first place?), and at communion holding one hand out while the other's pulling up his pants. Although he commits atrocious levels of violent crime and is an unmarried deadbeat father of twelve different kids, he has ironic imagery of La Virgen María tattooed on himself or embroidered in the rear window of his lowrider. Not to be confused with the old-school pachuco who could kick his ass.
Cholo: "Yo don't be no menace to South Central while drinking your juice in da 'hood, ese!"
Orange Julius vendor: "Was that a Rasberry Crush or Wild Blue Twist?"
