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.
