"; also the title of eclectic musician Beck
's 2005 album
Mira al guero. Él tiene pelo más rubio.
Guero / guera (pronounced- "huero" or "weddo")
-it means white person; blonde hair person; or light skinned person
ex:Qué Onda Guero?- whats up "whitey"?
Spanish slang for a white person, like calling someone a honkey
. Can also be used as a term of endearment for a Latino who has lighter skin, probably of Spanish descent. Güero is masculine, güera is feminine.
I saw a bunch of güeros in Santa Fe the other day. They were all talking about art and shit. Pinche gringos.
I got a lot of this when I taught in East LA. Best usage appears to be "blondy". It wasn't used much in a derogatory sense. I had to learn take it as harmless. He's tall, he's blond, he's a guero. Just descriptive.
Insisting that it be spelled with a diaeresis or trema is absurd. Sometimes "guerro".
Ay, guero, where you from?
Refers to a light-skinned or blonde individual. Not necessarily a Caucasian.
Originated in Mexico and is primarily used by Mexicans and rarely/never used by other Spanish-speaking nations.
- Ese güero tiene piel clara y pelo rubio.
- That güero has a light complexion & blonde hair.
It pretty much means "white person". It doesn't necessarily mean caucasion. If you're Mexican with light skin you may be nicknamed "Güero" for a boy, or "Güera" for a girl. If you have Spanish speaking friends and they say something like "hey güero" it means like "whats up white buddy". If there's some Spanish speaking person that doesn't like you or any white people and says something like "I hate that pinche
güero" it may be used as a rude and possibly racist way. Güero isn't a racist or bad word at all, as long as you say it with a positive tone and you dont sound like a jerk.
"¡Qué onda güero!" -What's up white boy!
"Le odio al pinche güero Jack." -I hate the freakin white boy Jack.
