At one time a very popular restaurant chain in the USA. Famous for thier Pancakes & not famous for the name which in fact was the FIRST two names of the chian's cofounders Sam & Bo (Sam+Bo=Sambo's) Not to be confused with the story "Little Black Sambo" at first they had the charater from "Little Black Sambo" then replaced him with with a young lad in Eastern India attire (Since tigers are more native to India NOT Africa as the book "Little Black Sambo" took place). Later the little boy was replaced with several young tiger cubs & they were replaced with a cartoon cook aptly named Sam. Even though the restaurant chain ceased to exist One on remains in the city of Santa Barbra California.
I remebered when I was a kid we used to stop at Sambo's before we when on our family car trip.

Sambo means cross-breeding of a Negro and Native Americans. It comes from Spanish "los ambos", meaning "the both" or "the others". Historically it came into being along with mulatto (cross-breeding of white and Negro) and mestizo (cross-breeding of white and Native Americans). More properly spelled zambo
Only a nigger would think that sambo is a racial slur.
Cross-breeding to create sambos or mulattoes is like mixing clean water with dirty water - you just get more dirty water.
