A politically-incorrect term used by the uneducated in reference to persons of vampire heritage because of its associations with bad Hollywood stereotypes and mad Romanian dictators. Calling a vampire a "dracula" is one of the most insulting things you can do short of calling them a dhampir, asking to be bitten, or mentioning Twilight. Among vampires it is known as the "D word" and is forbidden from being written in mainstream print.
Recently "dracula" has been reclaimed by some young vampires and used as a signifier of being in the vampire community (similar to calling someone bro or homie). Although younger vampires do not perceive the word as negative, humans are advised not to use it.
(Example One - A young vampire woman is shopping at the mall.)
Johnny: HEY DRACULA! Get out of my fucking mall!
Vampire: The Vampire Civil Rights Act says NO to segregated malls and bigotry!
(Example Two - Vampire mother addressing her child.)
Mother: ...and if I hear that you called little Vladimir a dracula again, I'll wash your mouth out with garlic! Do you understand?
Child: *sniffles* Yes, mommy.
(Example Three - Two young vampires meeting on the street.)
Vampire 1: 'Sup, dracula?
Vampire 2: Not much, d. You my top dracula!
*an elaborate handshake ritual is performed*
