- Dec 16 8:29 AMthere are so many terms all over the world to desribe
people in this category, it is a regional thing.
It is up to you how you want to take it.
As long as you are secure in your
identity, it shouldn't matter.

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?
