It depends who saying it( but the spanish used it correctly)
The Spanish used it correctly to distinguish themselves from other white people.It does not mean Blonde person. The spanish used it to refer to White people with simliar complexion like those of southern europeans to distinguish themselves from them.Since they don't run with the spanish but are similar complexion they used the word gringo to notify other spanish decend that this person may look spanish or they may speak spanish well but that they are from from another language or country, derived form the work greek, like they speak some greek language or something strange or wierd or hard to speak, the spanish used the word gringo in meaning that this person is speaking in greek,like when the american use the word greek to describe something they don't understand. Now in this century, the word gringo hasn't been used correctly, Morenos people call anyone gringo that not of dark skin, or a mexican that doesn't speak spanish and there are alot of wrong assuption of the word gringo out there. Gringo was primarily used by the spanish to distinguish thenselves and classifying someone else that looks white but comes from a different country of origin. If A spanish or mexican back in the days where to see a blonde person, then they would just call them guerro(blonde person)or if they see a black person, then they would call him Negro etc, but if they see a white person that looks of spanish decent then they would call him gringo, this word was used to distinguish themselves from from spanish.They are not going to call him Blanco since the word blanco referes to someone of white spanish decent that also has a spanish surname and who's country of origin is of the hispanic coountries, this was a blanco, but a gringo is someone who surname and country of origin was not of spanish decent therefore the spanish would just say, " he's talking greek" meaning some weird language, which they used the word " el gringo"
There are alot of gringo in the united states of American

A Spanish word meaning a white person. Basically the same thing as a black person calling a white person "cracker" but not racist.
A black person calling a white guy a cracker is racist, but a Mexican calling a white guy a gringo is legit.

a word that mexicans created in order to counter being called wetback. they consider it a derogatory term for a white(non-latino) person even though white people don't think it is offensive in the slightest. in fact white people are usually amused when this word is used and will laugh at anyone who uses it.
White person #1: What did the guy mowing your lawn call you?
White person #2:i think he called me a gringo
both: hahaha what a stupid wetback

Mexican: hey meng, you gringos want some weed?
Whitey: no, you probably laced it with something
Mexican: Hehehe you read my mind senor.

A derogatory term used to refer to white people. You'll never hear a Mexican say it unless they are upset with a white person. The Mexicans who use it are born in Mexico living here in the United States.
