Hey!! If you're Mexican-American/Latino/Chicano/Hispanic/otherwise associated with or know a lot about or are from South America, mind helping a brother out?

I have a character who is US born who's parents immigrated from Mexico. He's very proud of his Mexican identity, and I'm not sure how he would identify - if it's Latino, or Chicano, or just plain Mexican-American.

(Also, any tips on Mexican culture, especially Mexican-American culture, would be very very much appreciated.)
