all those who know me, know how much i love to be mulatto and i don't give a fuck about the past. i know how things were and i'm trying to change it little by little; we all know that change isn't going to come in a day or 2. i know how some feel about the word and i understand, but i feel whole to know that theres a word for me and it has such a beautiful meaning to it soo many mulattos out here in this world younger and older.

be proud of what you are because right now will have an effect on our children and the younger mulatto youth.

if you could provide a pic or a link to a pic, also feel free to feel us in about where you come from and just whatever

[where you live]
[what's it like being mulatto in your eyes]
[when and where did you first hear the word mulatto?]
[for what it's worth, do you ever really feel like you belong in a certain crowd?]

just those things would be nice but you can add whatever you like



if you got in rants or complaints or just want to say hi.

I hear you, and I love my mulatto self...
Mulatto, Mulatto both Black and White
Mulatto, Mulatto you're mixed and uptight.
Your Mulatto mystique, your mix is a freak
Your appearance I do adore
So exotic and demure.
Mulatto, Mulatto your mix is just right
From the White and the African is my day and my night.

The Meaning of Mulatto
"The Tragic Mulatto"

"I too had some trouble understanding and identifying with the word at first. But I think I have learned that redefinition really can and does exist, and deciding to own a word and then redefine it can be really empowering. To me, the historical crudeness and insulting nature of the word just serves as a reminder to everyone of the history so many people try to suppress and tuck away. There is something almost comical to me about being able to say, "Yes, I'm mulatto. I remember the history behind that word--Can you believe back then they would have compared someone as beautiful, intelligent, and racially symbolic as me to a mule? What the f*ck were they thinking?" The history, painful as it can be, is still mine, and mine to keep, and it reminds me of how far we've come, and how far we still have left to go.;)"
