I've always referred to myself as a gringa around my son-in-law and his family, who are Peruvians.

This past weekend, someone pointed out to me that it was a racist term.

I don't know what to call myself around Latinos. I am white, but so are many of them. I am American, but so they are as well.

RS - call me Blanca
