I read this story the other day on CNN. Genetics is interesting. There is most likely somewhere down the line years back, a blood relative that either the husband or wife is not aware of that is caucasian.

At one time many years ago I knew a caucasion couple that had a very black baby,needless to say the Dad made all kinds of accusations about
affairs,turns out when they talked to both sets of the grandparents,Great Grandma was not exactly caucasion

A similar situation happened to a friend's cousin.

I believe that this baby will have an afro when she gets older. My niece and nephew who are mulatto had the exact same hair when they were born other than theirs being black. She is simply adorable!!

I love you to death KC,but the word mulatto is as derogatory to a biracial as half breed is to the aboriginals

Here it is better than Half-black or African American esp when their family isnt from Africa and they are not American

ETA my sister would kick my ass because her children are Jamaican

I find it interesting the various terminology which is preferred and acceptable in different places. These guys are from the UK I wonder what the terminology would be there.

Is biracial the term that you would use there? I'm curious now and I meant no offense...

I don't know,but I find it interesting wherever I am as to the terms used to discuss race,mentally disabled and so on


Isn't this where we are supposed to name call and swear to create some drama?
I remember when one of my downs syndrome children were little someone asked me if the were Mongoloid,I told them absolutely I
had just got her off the boat from Mongolia,he told me how wonderful
I was to take a child from another country LOL

LMFAO...My friend actually has a Mongolian daughter that she adopted. I hate these kinds of discussions because I usually have a permanent fixture of my foot in my mouth. We are human beings and that should always trump respect, imo

It is a word that was used 100 years ago to describe a black/white mix amongst the slaves. It was derived from the word mule is my understanding because that is the way slave owners viewed their slaves

If you read some black history books you will find it often used in a derogatory sense,when I adopted the 2 mixed race boys,our criteria before we could do it was to have a good understanding of the black
race and the history of them including and mostly during the slave days

It is almost viewed in my area as being as bad as using the "N" word
