|a gringo is just a north american or anglo-saxon. it is usually a white person but doesnt have to be. it isnt a hateful term but it can be used hatefully. it also represents behaviour and attitudes latinos consider to be “american”.is he latino?
no hes a gringowhy wont you share your smokes, dont be such a gringo~gringo ~American, from the USA. The term comes from the american intervention in mexico in the late eighteen hundreds. Term derives from the popular phrase “green go home” yelled to american troops because of their green uniforms. It does not mean “white” or “caucasian” it is a derrogatory term depending on the context.
Gringa: female gringo. In mexico city it is a dish of shepherd style pork and cheese in aflour tortilla topped with coriander onion and pineapple.
It would suck to be a gringo, everyone in the world would hate you.
Contrary to some things that have been posted here, the US did not wear green coats, or green uniforms, during the Mexican American War, so that explanation for the origin of this word is bogus.
But the term is indeed related to American soldiers who invaded Mexico during the Mexican-American war. It actually came from the lines of what was then a song that was very popular with American infantrymen.
A popular American song during that time–one sung by many American troops as they marched–contained the repeated refrain:
“Oh, the ash and the oak and the willow tree,
And green grows the grass on the infantry”
Being members of the infantry, the second line was sung with particular fervor. “Green grows” sounded like “gringoes” to the non-English-speaking Mexicans, so they used that term to refer to all of the American soldiers.
A tourist in Mexico with the stereotype of northern European race.
. In Mexico, common nickname to a person with pale skin, Brown or blond hair and blue/green eyes.
Contemporary U. S. politics have brought this word to greater relevance, as the anti-gringo feeling has spread throughout the world.
The word Gringo is an evolution of griego, which was used to describe any foreigner that had an accent that prevented them from speaking spanish; particularly the Irish.
Often used by hispanics when refering to white (esp. American) people
It is generally derogatory, but can be used in reference context
In other regions, apart from Mexico itself, it basically refers to any “european looking” individual.
A non Hispanic person usually Anglo/white.
wat latinos call white ppls.
Hispanic (Spanish: hispano, hispánico) is a term that originally denoted a relationship to Hispania, which is to say the Iberian Peninsula: Portugal, Andorra, Gibraltar and Spain.
Recently a friend sent me this info on a Celt named Breogan
Breogán son of Brath (Briganos Maccos Brattae in Gallaic) was a mythical Celtic king from Galicia. Various accounts exist of this mythological father of the Galician nation. His sons were Ith and Bile (Belenus). Bile was the father of Mil Espaine.
Galicia itself is sometimes described poetically as the “home of Breogán” (or, in Galician, the fogar de Breogán). The land is so described in the anthem of Galicia, “Os Pinos”.
According to Gaelic legends compiled in the eleventh-century Lebor Gabála Érenn (“The Book of the Taking of Ireland”, also called “The Book of Conquests” or “The Book of Invasions”), King Breogán constructed in Brigantium (an ancient Celtic town, whose location is nowadays unknown, but maybe Betanzos or A Coruña) a massive tower of such great height that his sons Ith and Bile could see a distant green shore from its top. The glimpse of that distant green land enticed them to sail north to Ireland. Once there, they were received by the Tuatha Dé Danann (an ancient tribe who occupied Ireland before the Celts), who ambushed them and managed to kill one of Breogan’s sons, Ith. Decades later, Míl Espáine took vengeance upon the Tuatha Dé Danann and invaded Ireland with the intention of defeating them and settling in Ireland.
This tale is mostly described in the last chapter of the Lebor Gabála Érenn in reference to the Milesians or “Sons of Míl” who, were the last wave of invaders according to Irish mythology.
A similar story about a monk who saw a green island from the top of the tower of Brigantia was written in the ninth or tenth century in Galicia. The manuscript is called Trezenzonii de Solistitionis Insula Magna (“Trezenzon the Monk and the Big Island”).
A large statue of Breogán has been erected near the Tower of Hercules.
In Madrid, Spain’s capital, there is a park called Parque de Breogán, named after Breogán.
Breogan was an Iberian, a Milesian, the father of one of the main tribes of Ireland. He was a gringo in the future Spain before the word was slowly changed from Iberia.
The true origins of the name España and its cognates “Spain” and “Spanish” are disputed. The ancient Roman name for Iberia, Hispania, may derive from poetic use of the term Hesperia to refer to Spain, reflecting the Greek perception of Italy as a “western land” or “land of the setting sun” (Hesperia, Εσπερία in Greek) and Spain, being still further west, as Hesperia ultima.
Milesians and Miletus
Miletus (mī lē’ təs) (Ancient Greek: Μίλητος, Milētos; Latin: Miletus) was an ancient Greek city on the western coast of Anatolia (in what is now Aydin Province, Turkey), near the mouth of the Maeander River in ancient Caria. Before the Persian invasion in the middle of the 6th century BC, Miletus was considered the greatest and wealthiest of Greek cities.
Without going into great detail and hard work mapping this all out, I will leave it up to the readers to take it from here.
Miletus was a Greek city in Asia Minor
Milesians came from Miletus
Broegan was a Milesian, an Iberian, a Galician, looking out to Ireland or Hibernia.
Broegan was a gringo to whom?
As you can see we have a very distorted knowledge of history. You can ask any intellectual that has the Jew degree and he will be clueless in this particular area of history. The truth is words have been changed, historical events have been completely twisted to fit one people’s agenda and one people only and they aren’t the gringo’s folks! I think you know who I am talking about even without any derogatory slang.
Now if we could just get a professor (who has tenure) that tells us we are dumb white (hint hint) people to simply follow his own past and start teaching it we may be able to see where we have been and ultimately where we are going. Certainly someone out there can figure out where these Greeks came from before they were in Miletus. I think we will undoubtedly find that all Whites are related and only borders separate us from uniting and turning this world back where we all know it should be. There are only one people in the way. We can see our history has been trashed only to have us blamed for the present Jewish crime. Don’t ever claim I never tried to at least get the teachers to teach or media to talk so we could get the truth. The truth is these people get paid not to talk. Everything is inside out.
My apologies for the format of this. I could have made some of these facts more interesting to people to set them off to search more or to tickle your ear, but that’s not my gig. It has to be in your gut already!
Mel could have changed his upcoming Judas Maccabbee movie to “Get the Gringo” too, but the truth of who or what the Jews are would be left out as usual. All of this is nothing more than Cool Hand Luke saying “I can eat 50 eggs”
