      there 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.

      Mulatto 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?
