Hey Gringo

GRINGO It is the mexican way for the two English words green and go. During the US invasion to Mexico in the 1800´s mexican people wanted the US army to leave and, since they could not speak well English, they would just say gringo, gringo; asking for the northamericans to leave. The expression stayed in latin american culture to refer to a US person. Gringo for males and gringas for females.
