I grew up in the south. Back then, the term “mulatto” is not so much derogatory as stigmatizing. If a person had any “black blood” whatsoever, they were considered black and treated as such no matter what they looked like. I had no idea it had become derogatory??
I could be wrong, but I thought the term “mulatto” was ALWAYS meant to be offensive. I thought it came from the word “mule” and was originally negative because race-mixing was a thought to be a tragedy. Am I the only one?
@34 “I guess it’s not offensive…”
Some Black people call each other or themselves “the n-word”, but it’s still an offensive word. Anyway, none of us are certain of whether “mulatto” is truly derogatory, so it’s possible that the girl in your school doesn’t know either!
