Looking for information. You know the old story about 'gringo' having its
origin in 'Green Grows the Laurel'? I have seen this refuted several
times, but cannot find the refutations. Can anybody enlighten me as to
the pros and cons of this question?
I was told by my friend in Puerto Rico that I was a gringo because I was
Italian and a white cacucassion...have I beee tricked?
I assumed it was the Spanish way of making fun of me...like a wop!
