Mulatto Made the Final Switch to Her Moniker Recently
The term mulatto describes a mixed individual with African American and Caucasian roots. Sadly, the term was used slur during times of slavery and segregation in America. Hence, why it’s quite offensive. The root of the word references the offspring of a horse and a donkey.
You know you might know your intentions, but these are strangers who don’t know you, never even met you in person,” Mulatto expressed in the interview. “So you gotta hear each other out, and if you know those aren’t your intentions and that’s how it’s seen, it’s like why not make a change or alter it? For me, it was the name. So now I’m like, ‘OK, my intentions were to never glorify being mulatto.’ So if that’s how it’s being perceived and people think I’m saying, ‘Oh, I’m better because I’m mulatto’ or ‘My personality trait is mulatto’ … then I need to change the matter at hand.”
