I suppose this would be slang, but I couldn't find it when I did a search. I was curious and wanted to know how you say "white girl" in Spanish.
The term is 'weda' and is commonly used in the southwestern United States.
It was a friend of mine. He's Mexican and he said something that sounded like 'wetter' and told me that it means white girl, but I wasn't sure and wanted to check. Thanks.
Very interesting, Gustavo, this word does not exist in Spain.
In my country we don't have that kind of expresion, because we are all mixed ( thank God, even though still we have some people that they really think that they are: Pure white, it is just a optical ilusion, poor of them) and of course some people they always try to be rude with their vocabulary about other races, is not the general actitud.
Well, ... we have this word for people who has blonde hair ( natural or not) "Katira" if it is a woman and "Katire" if it is a man... but lately people used also for people who are the opposite, I mean : they are not blond... in any case it is not an offensive word on the contrary it is with affecttion.
Gringa would be one way. Keep in mind that many native Spanish speakers are caucasian, so how to translate "white girl" depends on who is saying it.
