3 Background and Social Status  Cuban exiles have created the most economically successful immigrant enclave in U.S. history  Although chonga girls don’t live in the ghetto, they imitate many of the features of the black ’gangsta’ style

4 Chonga Style  a combination of the gangsta look and that of a prostitute  large golden jewellery  oversized men's t-shirts with tight Brazilian pants  Reeboks, Nike Air Force Ones, Converse, or the most popular, Chinese beaded slippers in the same matching color as their top  black liner on their lips and eyes, pencil thin eyebrows
