Everyone's comments are relevant although they may not be agreeable.
that's like when i was in Cuba, I couldn't get use to many of the Afro Cubans referring to themselves as Mulatto/a but they didn't like when we (Black Americans) called them Afro Cubanos/as.
Now mulatto, that word makes me cringe. A mule doesn't reproduce and to refer to a mixed/multicultured/bi-cultural person as that, i think that's mean. but it's only mean if you understand the origin and deragoratory nature of the word.
