Young Thai men emulate Mexican cholos

Chivís Martínez for Borderland Beat

A new trend in Bangkok has young men emulating Mexican gangsters or cholos.  Thank you to the BB reader who sent this subtitled video to me.... odd but interesting.  
and thanks again to the reader who sent in the link to the article below...Paz Chivís

On the outside, many of these Thais resemble the Cholos who inspire them. Their clothes, tattoos, and hairstyles emulate those sported by real homies. That said, tattoos and bling do not a gangster make. 
When Coconuts interviewed members from three of these “gangs” - Balcony Pain, Fratez and D Sixty - we found out that none of the men appreciated the brutal violence that is often associated with real Latino gangs like the Latin Kings.  Moreover, most only had a shallow understanding of the foreign urban culture and Mexico in general.

What became clear is that the Thai obsession with these groups is simply an appreciation of their aesthetic. All of the men we spoke with were captivated by “the clean and simple style” that “worked well in this (Thai) weather,” as one gang member said. 
Perhaps what most separates the Thais from the Mexicans they imitate is that almost all of them hold innocuous 9-5s as teachers, policemen and bureaucrats. Many are family men, and some admitted to consulting their wives before getting certain tattoos. Needless to say, the Thai gangs don’t fight amongst themselves or deal in illicit drugs, both of which are hallmarks of real Mexican gangs. In a nutshell, this is a brotherhood of style-conscious men who bond over baggy white shirts and gothic-baroque tattoos.

That’s not to say that the Thais don’t have an understanding of the fierce take-no-shit Cholo attitude. Thanks to Youtube and movies they’re very much aware of that culture’s hyper-aggressiveness and machismo. One Balcony Pain gang member - Mr. Shiro Local - bared his inner gangster to us when he rapped a few lines from an original song he had written called “Fuck the Popo” in which he compared corrupt Thai police to parasites in his scrotum. 
Such outright vitriol is rarely directed towards people in authority in Thailand, where the dominant culture is one of extreme deference towards the powerful. Yet, you’d be hard pressed to find Thais who disagree with Mr. Local’s assessment of Bangkok's cops. Perhaps a little more Mexican gangstah chutzpah is exactly what Thailand needs.

      It's funny because it's true.

      I don't think gangs in Mexico are considered 'cholos', unless they wear the style that the Chicano ganbangers use. They're just known as 'pandilleros' because that's what they are, gangs.

      Also not trying to be a smart ass. Because I know what this article means by "Mexican cholos". Just kind of asking/pointing out because im not too sure.

  9. I remember decades ago, the some NY fashion houses tried to sell the "Pachuco" look. Some Japanese youth were into the "Low Rider" cars and culture in Japan! And Black gang members in LA took to the "Cholo" dress and low riders. i.e. Snoop Dog.

    The only problem that I see is the spread of some negative American youth culture around the world. Tagging, gang membership and disrespect to everyone. Here in deep Mexico, there is tagging everywhere. Cities and ranchos are not immune to this disease.

    1. Obviously you haven't been to Tijuana or Cuidad Juarez where they've been gang-banging since gangs existed. I remember seeing cholo deportees and natives in Guadalajara, Mexico City and surrounding suburbs since early 90's. I even saw one of the nicest '63 Chevy Impala convertibles I have ever seen in Los Reyes, Michoacan around 1996.

  19. Cholos mexican? Salvadoran emigres, kaibil influenced gangbangers, bring the cholo style to califa where mexican copycats combine the pachuco without money for the full zoot suit but with enough spaghetti straps T shirts jailhouse dress style, combined with the black CRACK ads get copied by thai,lao,vietnamese and other gangs, if it is now mexican style because of propaganda, like jorge hank rohn naming his tijuana futbol sucker team XOLOS, which may confuse somehow with cholos, but is from XOLA famous street, theater etc name in mexico city,the seat of the hank family empire of corruption, I know of salvadoran cholos moving weight through mexico city to tijuas on its way to califas, the TAESA airlines was right up there for the services, inregardless of the fashion, I do not like anything cholo, it is not mexican, just like drugs and murder is not a mexican only thing.
    I will have to acknowledge that some cholitas exceed by very wide margins anybody's expections of beauty and estethics, cholos make me puke, chilanga influenced xolos make me wonder how much more closer INYOURFACESUKKA! Can jorge hank rohn get; the murderer, trafficker, political family enriched through corruption, the much traveled futbol sucker teams to the much too frecuent sucker tounaments, full of much traveling, the marradona stays in mexico and cuba, the many addictions of the players, the lack of investigations, the sudden passion for futbol players from england, brasil etc really feed my cynical appetite for the possibilities, and my BS detector keep working good regarding the connections of the connected

    1. I beg to differ ese! The Cholo style is Mexican-American( Chicano) culture! Every Mexican-American has a little cholo. You know the Dickies, low riders, etc. Chicanos from my generation, prior generations and present generations have dressed like cholos. In my opinion, that style is influenced by the Mexicano migrants who came to the U.S.A. to work the fields from Texas to California and over the U.S. You needed loose pants inorder to perform the task of picking the crops more easier. Try bending over in tight jeans. Words like Simon, Ese, Chalé, homie, Que No, Orale are common words used by Cholos. Movies of reference are: Colors, Bad Boys, La Bamba, Mi Familia, American Me, Blood In Blood Out, and Training Day. Chicano rappers who personify the life style include Kid Frost, B-Real, and Kilo -- who's rap rola was used in the story. A lot of the imagery of Cholo graffiti, tattoo, and low rider art is derived from Aztec culture. Salvadoran culture my ass. The original Salvadoran cholos were inspired by the Mexican cholos in the Mexican-American neighborhoods they moved into in the U.S. in the
      80's. As far as Hank Rohn's Tijuana
      Xolos is concerned, the team name has more to do with the hairless dog native to Mexico; hence, the picture of the mascot dog. The Cholos(Xolos) were common pets, along with another native Mexico dog the Chihuahua, of the Aztecs (Mexicanos --- pronounce the x with a ch) when Cortez arrived. Come to think about, cholos shave their heads. The mascot name is inspired by the Xolos and the cholos. A lot of cholos in TJ and SD -- home of the SD state Aztecs.

  25. Yeah, isn't it pathetic, the crap we export from America nowadays.

    Australia and Europe imitate the whole Harley biker white-trash thing... thanks to Cali;

    Then there's all the wannabe brothas: white, brown, yellow, red, and the blacks who aren't from America, let alone the hood, faking like they're straight out of Compton... thanks to Cali;

    And then there's these ones, confusing Chicano cholo "culture" with the culture of Old Mexico, which has NOTHING to do with this American epidemic... and yes, once again thanks for nothing California!

    Then there's all those people who, although they are definitely not in any way, shape, or form, Italian, they not only own the collectors edition of The Godfather saga and Scarface, and they not only pattern their ENTIRE wardrobe, and affect their voice like a cross between Michael & Sonny Corleone, Vincent Mancini, Tony Montana, and Tony Soprano, but they also mistakenly use the word "mafia" to describe organized crime groups that are FAR from the Italian extraction (Russian Mafia, Mexican Mafia, Albanian Mafia, Chinese Mafia, Black Mafia, et cetera, et cetera).

    It's one thing to acknowledge that a movie, a song, an event, or some person(s) had an impact on you.
    It's an altogether entirely different thing when you start acting like a codependent, follower, wannabe, useful idiot, tool, mark, sucker, fool, trick, cuckold, cornudo, cabron...

    Most "gangsters" are macho posers trying to get laid, get paid, and get over... Why should they earn something the hard way? They think they're entitled!
    They talk about respect and being disrespected ALL THE TIME...
    Yet besides having no clue what respect is actually about, gangsters lack originality.

    Gaysters are posers, posers aren't the real deal, and when a women's psyche eventually picks up that you're faking the funk, she won't waste her time any longer; and she can thank you for steering her toward the kind of guy you love imitating (looking up to) so much...

    Actually real women prefer real men. Men who work hard and save, keep their word, who are humble, who don't cheat, men whose change the world one act at a time for the better, not men who participate in destroying as many lives around them as possible.

Everyone here calls them "cholos". and they are often referred to as "cholos" in the different newspapers. They dress the same as the "cholos"in the USA, with the baggy pants. They are a dead give-a-way. I see Mexican cholos dressed like that everyday here in Chihuahua. Not all gang members are "cholos".

  47. There are any number of Mexican cultural styles and expressions, but "Cholo" is a U.S. based one. While Cholo style may appeal to some Mexican-Americans, its roots are more Central American (or rather Central Americans in the U.S.) than Mexican. 12 years in Mexico (Mexico City, Monterrey, Sinaloa... where our gangsters have a much different fashion sense) and I have never seen a Cholo who wasn't a U.S. visitor.

    (Scarface role - Tony Montana) Alfredo James "Al" Pacino (born April 25, 1940) is an American film and stage actor and director. He is well known for playing mobsters, including Michael Corleone in The Godfather trilogy and Tony Montana in Scarface, and often appeared on the other side of the law...
    Pacino was born in East Harlem, New York City, to Italian American parents Salvatore Pacino and Rose. His mother's parents, Kate and James Gelardi, came from Corleone, Sicily. His father Salvatore's father Alfio came from San Fratello, Sicily.

    (Scarface role - Frank Lopez) Robert Loggia (born Salvatore Loggia; January 3, 1930) is an American actor and director. Loggia, an Italian American, was born on Staten Island on January 3, 1930, the son of Benjamin Loggia, a shoemaker,
    and Elena Blandino, a homemaker, both of whom were born in Sicily, Italy.

    (Scarface role - Gina Montana) Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio (born November 17, 1958) is an American actress and singer. She first became known for her role in Scarface in 1983... Mastrantonio was born in Lombard, Illinois to Mary Dominica (née Pagone) and Frank A. Mastrantonio, both Italian.
    (Wikipedia, March 21, 2014).

    In other words, you apparently know how to type insults, but you're all pasta mushad and no salsiccia, my friend. Tu capisci?
    Both capos in Scarface were played by Sicilians, and Tony's sister Gina, is actually an Italiana by way of Rome. The story centers around Miami which, among others includes Colombianos, and of course Cubanos. Now that I've broke down the facts for you about Scarface, mister "For one", are your feathers unruffled? Or no... Ne ho avuto abbastanza di te!

      In fairness to the comment @1:27pm, he's correct in saying that the modern Scarface (modern since he mentioned Cubans which is what the modern one is about) has nothing to do with Italians. Your reply to that poster about Al Pacino being Italian is essentially a logical fallacy, red herring. He mentioned the modern movie and the FICTIONAL Cuban character not the real life actor behind the character. Tu capisci?

      Delete
    2. The actors might have been Italian-American in the movie Scarface, however, the roles they played were based on Cuban characters. Just like
      in Carlitos Way, Al Pacino played the
      role of a Puerto Rican gangster. Too
      your credit though, the Sicilian
      mobster Charles "Lucky" Luciano, he
      of the Commission of the Five
      Families of New York, at onetime
      based himself in Havana, Cuba after
      being deported from the U.S. He
      established the French Connection
      inorder to enter heroin into the U.S.
      through Cuba. In the movie Hoodlum,
      the roles were reversed. The role of
      Lucky Luciano was played by Cuban-
      American actor Andy Garcia, who
      came out in Godfather 3 as the
      fiance of Michael Corleone's daughter.

    I think it should be filed with all the other BDN made up BS. Since the made up character "Lucy" and the ridiculous book, they have continued the fiction.

    Put that story with Big Foot,"40" boiling babies and Elvis feasting at BK.

    There is enough savagery in narco world that no one needs to make up stories.

    I am open to the possibility that perhaps there is a forcing of members to consume organs for one reason or another, initiation, test of fearlessness or punitively, but really, cannibalism as a choice? I am not buying it. as a offering maybe, but come on....really? nah!!!!! :)

    Non è ancora abbastanza cervello per ante in questa conversazione, e questo diventa sempre più evidente come gestire la tua bocca. L'uomo in 1:32 e 4:21 vi ha portato a scuola, e l'unica risposta era caduta come il vero arrapato che si. Chi è il fottuto asina muta? Andare a giocare nel traffico già. Basta con te e il tuo stupido parere.

  67. 11:27 hey goomba! remember joe colombo got killed by his parnas for defending la cosa nostra too much, in public, on the press and tv...sam giancana went hiding in mexico, (cuernavaca,morelos) and chicago's Harry the Hook Aleman's daddy was from durango, mexico, italian mafiosos have been in mexico since a long time ago, they also took tin-tan to cuba and that's the tie to cd juarez and the pachucos in el paso, all the way to chicago.
    the italian mafiosos always lose everything to their jewish partners, managers and associates, and so do the mexican druglords.
    we can't all escape our heritage or keep it under wraps, if it's in the past for some, good for them, if the money is gone it's ok too, we all have better things to do, it makes no sense to be ashamed of somebody else's past, just laugh it off, and thank god nobody blames the italians for mussolini, have fun spaghetti benders, united!
    remember to thank God for sophia loren and gina lollobrigida...
    by the way could you traduce your post for us spanglish readers? thanx

    I think you missed the point. Sounds like the guy in 1:32 and 4:21 are the same guy, & if you read it, his argument wasn't against Cubans or any other race, only that traitors exist in ever people. Traitors who sell their own people out and are clueless about what respect really is. Traitors who lack originality.

    A bad imitation of a bad imitation.

    Playing all offended about Cuba or whatever in order to imply that you have been racially offended is the race card fallacy, changing the subject fallacy, & the real red herring.

    Nobody has control over their race, color, gender, who, what, when, where,why, or how they were born, rich, poor, whatever.

    It's simple, anywhere in the world it's the same thing.

    Some people choose respect, honor, morals ethics, scruples, values, verguenza and are pure class even if they have absolutely no money or family, and nothing but the clothes on their back...

    And then some people live like animals; they'll rat their own mothers out to save their own necks, they got no respect for nothing, & the one identifying mark they bear is that, like true bastards, they've broken from every tradition, custom, & show no respect for the authority of their own family, community, & their elders.

  75. I will speak to the truth. First of all. This way of dressing, does not speak to "Mexican Style'. I am Mexican and I don't dress like this. Only a group of lost people dress like this. When I say "lost', I mean they have nothing to truly relate to. Only losers who will get their girl pregnant young, not graduate from high school, work at one job, then quit, then find another job, then quit and so on. I grew up in the hood, but improved my way of living by getting an education and showing what true hardworking Mexican that want to make it in life. Instead of living at home with my girl and her kids or our kids with our parents on welfare. If you dress like this and live that life. You are a lost person. Sorry no one has told you the truth. True Mexicans, wake up, go to work, come home, talk to their kids, ask them how school was, get involved. Not go to work sometimes, come home and drink beer til you fall asleep, tell your wife to lie that you left her so yall can live off the government. I write this incase a white, black, or other race see's this article and thinks "This is Mexican Style'. When I say get an education. I'm not saying you have to graduate from college. I meant at least try to get the basics to have a job to support your family, not fix up your car or spend it on clothes instead of your kids. Uncivilized followers dress like this.

    2. I personally dont think the stye looks that bad, at the same time not all mexicans dress like this. This style did however originate from mexicans

    3. @ 11:20. I'm sorry but the style originated by Chicanos, not Mexicans. Mexicans in America might be poor but they have more respect for themselves!

    Like it's not enough already, that you lack the brains to ante into this conversation. Which becomes more and more evident the way you run your mouth. The guys in 1:32 and 4:21 took you to school, and your only answer was to miss the point entirely, like the true moron you are. Who's the fucking dumb ass? Go play in traffic already. Enough with you and your stupid opinions.

    @2:42 ..saw your ass coming; boooy, you are sooo in love, i guess you are one of those guys who never get the girl; when you try to slam others because of your frustrations, there are even less chances for you, give it up, boy, it's time for you to go to the other sidewalk and find youself a boyfriend, leave women for real men, who don't need to pull their hair to get some attention...
    @7:30 thank you, get better chivis, we need you and your enchiladas here, never mind the bitter and frustrated, let them get steammed on their own poisons. best regards :-) :-) :-) :-)

  79. i don't really know about the origins of the word XOLA, but the hairless dogs of the aztecs were called escuintles, were used for food too, and many mexicans call small babies and children escuintles, izcuintle is used too, kind of like the way people call babies rug rats in the US... \*).). 0-8{ !!!
    anyways, the thirst for fashion, attracts the look that will seduce the broke asses that live the real life of criminals for reals; mc hammer's pants are gone, next up, justin bieber's, BB readers will loot the stores!

  85. ANONYMOUS , most trendiest, has put THE BOOK OF MORMON white shirt and black suit and tie "look of the mormon" back in fashion, only for the elite, most of the most oppressed masses of anonymous don't have the $$$$$ for the suits, sometimes not even for the mask...
    which brings me back to the point; given all the evil shenanigans they have perpetrated, and being as we are one big anonymous army, maybe some BB tecnicians and hellrisers should join forces and see what can be done for the non influential mexicans that can't take care of business in mexico, while suspicious evil elements always infiltrate all revolutionary movements, somebody may like to do something, those with the most to lose, quickly become more aggreeable to those that don't have much else to lose and wanna put their ass on the line

  87. One thing's for sure: whether you live in Mexico or the U.S. we mexicans don't know how to dress or have any class, not even the so-called rich Nacionales: they're the worst who buy everything at an american mall thinking it's the shit. There's no such thing as Mexican Fashion. Respectable Mexican Fashion. We dress like clowns. Look at a fucking Mariachi. What do you see? A pinche payaso.

  88. 11:25 andy garcia played: sonny, michael and fredo's nephew, son of their sister and her husband, the accomplice in sonny's murder, she wanted to be somebody, like fredo, she wanted revenge for her husband's death, but she got better, and she got the whole shebangs for her son, we are still waiting for the godfather IV. it's the least we deserve after watching part III.
    by the way i don't remember andy's name in the movie, but his main squeeze was sofia coppola, michael's daughter in the movie and his first cousin,who got shot. what's with the italians weakness for their cousins? is it the redneck side of them, or the italian side of the rednecks?
