9/7/10: The contemporary disambiguation of the word Gringo was missing from this page. Another similar racial slur, "Coolie" includes prominent definitions labeling that word for what it is primarily used for - racial slurs. Wikipedia editors have allowed that edit. To be consistent with that edit, Gringo has been revised to show the predominant usage of the word in today's culture. (talk) 15:09, 7 September 2010 (UTC)

Is "Gringo" (always meant as) a racial slur?[edit]

Is the term "Gringo" always meant as a racial slur? I am not sure of this, I have heard it used without that intention (though not necessarily understood as such) Hobbitschuster (talk) 00:16, 5 March 2016 (UTC)
