Guero is not to be confused with gringo. This term isn't as racialized as the other definitions would lead one to believe. It is a descriptive term used to refer to anyone with a lighter skin complexion. It is NOT exclusive to any one racial or ethnic group( eg: whites and light-skinned Latinos can fall into the "guero" category.)

In Mexico, and in other Spanish speaking countries, it is often a term of endearment used to describe men with lighter skin complexions.

It is in contrast to "prieto", which is a term of endearment used towards darker skinned men.
Hombre 1: Eres gringo buey?
Hombre 2: No idiota. Solamente soy guero. Quien le dijo que todos los Latinos eran prietos? No que hay algo malo con ser prieto.
Hombre 1: Buey, solo te pregunte si o no.

Man 1: Are you a gringo?
Man 2: No dummy. I'm just "guero". Who told you all Latinos are "prietos"? Not that there's anything wrong with being dark-skinned.
Man 2: Dude, it was a yes or no question.

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".

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.
