Notes on the Pachuco: Stereotypes, History and Dialect
Hinojos, Francisco G.
Atisbos: Journal of Chicano Research, 53-65, Sum 75
In the early 1940's, a group of Mexican American youths called Pachucos emerged in the United States. This paper discusses the attitudes of some writers of the time and their creation of a criminal stereotype of the Pachuco, his origins, the racial basis of the zoot-suit riots, and the basic origin and composition of his slang, Calo.
