I am no "gringo", I am black.
Saying that black gringos are not gringos is like saying that black latinos are not latinos.
BTW, the term "gringo" is not necessarily pejoritive. That is a huge misconception on the part of gringos. It is primarily descriptive, and only aquires a pejoritive meaning (as in "Ugly American") by the context in which it is used.
Could you tell from the context that I meant it pejoratively?
