a NON offensive terms used to describe a person that is half white, half black. Mulattos are obbsessed with identity, and mulatto is the perfect word for identifying a mixed person. Where I'm from, me and all of my mulatto friends embrace the word, and rep mulatto to the fullest. We can't say that we black, we can't say that we white, and every other word for mulatto sounds retarded, like "mixed," "bi-racial," or "multi-cultural."
My mom is black, my dad is white, and I am mulatto. But when I fill out an application, I have to check "other."
