Mensagem:  My take on the gringo thing is the same as for the 'n'-word: it varies according to the recipient. It doesn't bother me to be called a gringo; IMO it accurately describes me - a white person who is not a native-speaker of spanish. Some black americans do not mind the n-word, even though it's connotation and history are rather more pejorative than 'gringo'. Some white folks get worked up about the black use of the term 'cracker', even though that term does not have a pejorative history and is in fact a viable culture.

Thanks for the tip on confederates in the attic, Dale, I'll check it out......
