Usage in Brazil[edit]

In Brazil, many people of African descent consider the term "mulato", when used to describe race or skin color, to be an offensive racial slur, due to its commonly attributed etymology "mule-like", implying the bestiality of people thus described. —Daniel Ávila, 14:54 (UTC), 03 March 2017 — Preceding unsigned comment added by 191.17.153.167 (talk)

Offensive Term?[edit]

Should there be something in the "Contemporary Era" that says that the term is now considered offensive, and is no longer used as a standard term? Because that's certainly the case, the dictionary lists it as such, and I was surprised that that wasn't mentioned anywhere in the article.Carlo (talk) 21:31, 8 January 2019 (UTC)

Incorrect image id[edit]

The image titled Pinckney Benton Stewart on the mulatto entry is incorrectly labeled. The image is Homer Plessy of the famous Supreme Court decision. Ampittis (talk) 01:45, 23 April 2019 (UTC)
