Half-cast is a derogatory term to describe a person of mixed race or ethnicity. It is commonly used to refer to people who are white/black. This term is incorrectly believed to have been adopted from the Indian caste system, but 'Cast' comes from the Latin castus, meaning pure, and the derivative Portuguese and Spanish casta, meaning race.
"She married a black man and has three half cast children by him."
