One of Alcaraz’s favorite stereotypes is the cholo. To show support for California Governor Jerry Brown he recently depicted Brown in clichéd cholo attire, bandana and flannel shirt included. With a headline that read “Brown Pride,” Alcaraz was taken to task by other Latinos for being stereotypical, which made him laugh. “I use the cholo as an empowering thing, rather than a buffoon. I use it for defiance,” he explained. “You have to use stereotypes, because that’s the language these critics are trafficking in. Some people miss the point, but you just have to keep hoping that someone will move beyond the surface,” said Alcaraz.
