A mulatto is someone who has one white and one black parent or someone whose ancestors are also mixed white and black. Also known as half-caste or mixed race. Alot of South American countrys have large percentages of mulattos. Bob Marley was a mulatto and so is Halle Berry.

Nick for a person of mixed heritage..namely of black and white...can be construed as a racist term but its not nearly as racist as the insecure fuckheads who try to force people of mixed heritage to identify as one or the other...as if our society is really that "black and white", so to speak.
Don't tell me race what to identify as. You don't fucking own me.

A person with European and African ancestry. Is not just having " one white parent and another black" like some ignorant idiots have said here. Mulatto does not derive from " Mule". The word derrives from "Muladi", which is from Arabic " Muwaladeen", which means white mixed with Moor. It comes from medieval times. If the slavers wanted to call people " mules", they just call would've call them " mulas" instead of " mulattos" just like the Jews that converted to Christianity in Medieval Spain were reffered to as " Marrano" ( pig in Spanish). Mulatto as " mule" was invented by some racist white assholes in the mid 18th century,who resented that some of them were richer than them. That's why Mulatto is not offensive in Latin America. It is just a pc idiots in the U.S that think that they know it all,and don't know shit about Spanish Medieval history nor Latin American history.
Most Mulattoes are multi-generational. Specially in Latin Amferica.

A person with one white parent and one black parent. They are usually very attractive, given that they are the perfect blend, not too light and not too dark. Mulattos are widely regarded as the most beautiful people in the world.
I have a mulatto girlfriend, and I must say she is smoking hot.

Someone who is part white part black, usually come out with very sexy features and lighter skin. Some say it's a derogatory term, but it seems like just about every other word is derogatory these days, so whatever.
Leila: what race do you think has the sexiest men?

Angie: I'm gonna have to say mulatto.

Way to describe someone who is mixed races: of African and European descent. Often mulatto woemen are gorgeous with beautiful, creamy, smooth skin, not too dark, not too light. They appeal to both black people and white people alike. This is the way everyone will look in years to come. Everyone will be beautiful blended races. Perfection.
Did you see that sexy mulatto girl? Shes too fucking gorgeous.

1) A "race" created by one white parent and one black parent. They are instantly given a higher place in life by both races, seeing as how they combine the traits of one race that the other desires, meaning they have the "best of both worlds." They are admired for their beauty by both races (although more envied than admired by Blacks).

But it should be noted that one parent's racial traits may outnumber/dominate the other parent's traits completely, therefore making it harder to distinguish mulattos from being "just" black or "just" white. In my opinion, the 50/50 combination produces the prettiest mulatto children.

They look great, but any mulatto would tell you about their conflicts of "belonging". Even though they're pretty much their own race, most are still obligated by society to be on "one side or the other." But the unwritten rule is whichever racial trait is more dominate equals the "side" they "belong" on. Also, most mulattos really dislike the word mulatto. Therefore, the terms mixed, or bi-racial are considered more appropriate (despite the inaccuracy of the term, because "mulatto" is the only term used to describe one with a black and white parent). They also hate the term gray, (which is also more accurate).

Best known features of Mulattos include:

a) Different colored eyes (grey & green are the most common, but I have seen blue, hazel not that often)

b) "Good" hair (hair that is not stringy like Whites, or nappy like Blacks; long, luxuriously dark, curly hair; this may also include darker, fuller eyebrows & eyelashes)

c) "Better" facial features (the high-cheekbones, "perfect" nose, and fuller lips that are desired by both races)

d) "Perfect" skin (lighter skin is still highly valued in the Black community, and even though most mulattos are only slightly darker than whites, their skin still has the pigment that prevents them from being easily sunburned)

And there you have it. Mulatto people...Just remember that mixed is the more appropriate term...Or bi-racial.

2) Proof that white women love black men, and white men love black women.

1) A list of some celebrity mulattos (who have black/white parents only)

Nicole Ari Parker - actress: (50/50)
Vanessa Williams - actress: (mulatto/black)
Alicia Keys - singer: (black/white)
Derek Jeter - baseball: (black/white)
Grant Hill - basketball: (black/mulatto)
Karyn Parsons - actress: (white/black)
Lenny Kravitz - singer: (white/black)
Smokey Robinson - singer: (white/black)
Tahj Mowry - actor/Disney kid: (white/black)
Vin Diesel - actor: (white/black?? but not even HE knows for sure)
Corbin Bleu - Disney kid: (black/white)

2) Also look at TV commercials featuring kids. In commercials featuring Blacks, most of the children are mulattos. In commercials featuring token blacks, the token blacks are mulattos. Especially on the Disney channel.
