3512Re: What are the general feelings towards using the term "mulatto"?
- Dec 16, 2007Mulatto doesn't really bother me but,
I don't refer to myself as mulatto.
It sounds like an "old term" to
me so, I really don't use it.
I usually say mixed, biracial or multicultural.
I know of biracial people who don't like to be
called mixed but, it doesn't bother me at all.
That's just my opinion.

What do most people of black/white mixed-background think of the term?
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?
