3511Re: [Generation-Mixed] What are the general feelings towards using the term "mulatto"?
- Dec 16, 2007It's is just a term ' . But for some reason I think of
mulatto don't bother me too much. Cause I know who I am.
In the world beyond this group, it can be admired or it
can be offensive I guess. I have heard it is worse if
you are biracial in other countries, than it is here.

Not just in this group but in general?
I know that the term has its origination in the Spanish/Portugese word
meaning young donkey, an animal that cannot have viable offspring.
I know that some people embrace the term, but breaking it down,
what are the general population's attitudes towards it versus
black/white mixed-race people versus people in this group?
