I can't believe that people in this country still use the term mulatto. Its probably just a matter of time before someone starts talking about half-breeds, quadroons, or octoroons.
I know, ain't it something?
Well, it's still widely used in South America, but it doesn't carry the same deragatory weight it does here (in Europe, it also carries more of a neutral meaning).
