Thanks to Essayacademia. thanks for your essay services.
This can all be summed up in a nutshell really.
In all English speaking countries EXCEPT for the United States of America, the correct spelling is Grey. In the US the correct spelling is Gray. As with quite a lot of words in the English language America changed them to suit themselves, as in the aforementioned example colour/color. These changes are quite numerous throughout American English vs. English.
So both of these are quite legitimate spellings, though not necessarily both correct. It's all geography really, or American English vs. English.

Oh my, what a topic. I don't find offence at the use of 'grey' or 'gray' I find myself using both when I'm writing informally, though I do tend to lean towards 'grey' in my more formal writings but that's just a personal preference. Though I must agree with earlier posters that English (and any language for that matter) evolves. It follows the times and ideas of the people who speak it and changes to meet new needs. For those who are counting I am American, but on that note I think the choice of how you say words and spell them comes from where you live and grew up and from where you parents, and grandparents are from as well. For those who say Americans have 'bastardized' the English language, I would have to disagree because there are so many other cultural inputs into American besides British influence that it's only natural that they would become a part of the language, for example in parts Louisiana where there is an interesting English dialect I'd fondly call "Franglish" As I'm ranting now and getting off topic, for me 'grey' or 'gray'. It's all in where you come from.
P.S. An added note for my fellow Americans, the ever debated topic between the North and the South, is it pecans (pee-cans) or pecans (pa-cons)? Just thought I'd add a little sugar to the spice, ^_^.
