Cholos
Kamaaria Mackins

Cholos is a word created by Hispanic Criollos in the 16th century. Sociologically it refers to individuals of mixed or pure Native American ancestry or any other racially mixed origin. The usage of “cholo” is meant differently throughout parts of the world. In most American usage today the term cholo is used to describe a low-income Mexican-American sub-culture manner of dress. The first usage of the term is first recorded in a book by the Peruvians published in the year 1609 and appeared again for a second time in 1616 in a book called Comentarios Reales de los Incas by Inca Garcilaso de la Vega. A sentence from the book (originally written in Spanish) stated: “The child of a black male and an Indian female, or of an Indian male and black female, they call mulatto or mulatta.” The children are also called cholo as well. Cholo comes from the Windward Islands. In the Windward Islands, cholo , means dog. Not purebred but not considered to be respectable in character or appearance. The Spaniards use it for insult and bitter, abusive language. Cholo used in the English language dates back to approximately 1851 when used by Herman Melville in his book “Moby-Dick”, which the title refers ti a Spanish speaking sailor, possibly from the Windward Islands. In the United States today the term cholo also can indicate a person of Mexican or Mexican-American descent who is associated with a Southwestern style of dress wear. Cholo is used often to describe a Mexican-American gang culture, American subcultural subgroups such as the “low-rider” car culture, or even the hip hop scene. The Porrúa dictionary defines cholo, as used in the Americas, as a “civilized Native American or a half breed or mestizo of a European father and Native American mother” Cholo has been used along the borderland as a derogatory term to mean lower class Mexican immigrants, also in the rest of Latin-American to mean an

    My cousin Henry, Jake, and myself decided to go shoot BB guns at the old Nike site, which was now a park. We climbed up to the top of the abandoned radar tower with our BB guns and pretending to be sharp shooters, we shot the BB guns at three cans we lined up on the ground. Some kids from the neighborhood adjacent to ours came to the same park with fireworks. We climbed down to meet them. They shared their fireworks with us and we shared our BB guns with them. We were having a blast throwing the bottle…
