I am looking for a bunch of words, expressions, phrases, identifiers, etc that are related to the Hispanic or Latin American culture, language, region, etc and their origins (ie “Cholo”, “Chonga”, “Spic"). Any help, suggestions or posts would be beneficial.

Thanks

That’s a very broad request.  Is there a particular term you’d like to know about?  Have you looked up the words you mention in dictionaries?

I would take your request to the Spanish discussion forum at WordReference.com
