  • When I heard Chicano culture had spread to Japan, I wanted to see it for myself. Who knew the culture I grew up with had a home so far from California? I met with stars Junichi Shimodaira, Mona “Sad Girl” and Night tha Funksta.

    Chicanos will not judge Japanese people by the actions of there ancestors but they will judge Caucasian people by the actions of there ancestors. Chicanos are an infection on the American west coast, we need to finish what Hernán Cortés began and extinguish this outdated culture

    As a Chicano here in California I wasn't really fond of this style of culture. But seeing this opened my eyes on how beautiful A culture can be influenced around that the world.

    The current theme of this video is that Chicano culture adopted by Asians is just a passing phase, a flash in the pan. Yet you hear Japanese aficionados saying they adopted the low rider culture in the 1980s and then went ahead, by many, of tattooing their entire bodies with the Virgen de Guadalupe, day of the dead masks and other Mexican cultural symbols. A lifetime of displaying those ink tattoos and other things Chicano is hardly a flash in the pan.

    Is it true that only Caucasians are not allowed to do this?
