Okay, I'll accept help from anyone, though wouldn't mind assistance from those native to the states of New Mexico and Texas, particularly places such as Houston, Del Rey, San Antonio, any other places I'm clueless about >.>".
I'm doing a bit of extensive research on the culture and lingo of Southwest Texas (or south east if you're from Houston and San Antonio), particulary on the outliers, places people would normally not consider... hospitable.
I want to get as many details as I can before I start work on this project of mine, and any assistance will be appreciated. While my search is actually rather vague I do have select details I'd like info on.
I'm interested in the chicano peoples, as well as Calo dialect, street life in the slums, and various gangs.
I don't expect much, but anything is appreciated.
I will be looking for information elsewhere, from more specialized sites, but I know I suck at researching what I need when its a larger scale research.
History is always accepted, I prefer to have context.
Thanks in advance for anything posted here.
