Cuban slang for an old person with white hair, referring to the sugar color of their hair. Can be used to describe a man or a woman. If used to describe an old man, may also refer to his background as a cane-cutter in Cuba. Especially heard to describe old Cubans around Miami. Somewhat disrespectful when referring to older persons, but acceptable in referring to former cane-cutters.
Yo, Cano, did you used to cut cane in the cane fields. Yo, viejo (old person) I'm talking to you, are you deaf?
