For the first time today my daughter was called a "half-breed" it was a older lady so I did not get upset...much.

Oreo, half-breed, mutt - What do you think of these terms? Is it on the same level as other deorgatory terms, in your opinion?

HALF BREED? oooo That would make me ! My boy has already been called a mutt. . .I guess I find that less offensive than Half-breed. . .Not sure. he's only 2 weeks old, I guess I'll have to wait a bit and see what people come up wiht.

I call myself a half breed.. lol It doesn't bother me to much..

I'm literally half and half.. My dad is 100% German (from Germany) and my mom is 100% Filipino (from the Philippines)..

As for my kids.. I wouldn't be offended at all if someone said that to me. Especially where I live where the population is 99% Caucasian.. I would also correct them and say my kids are 1/4, 1/4 and 1/2 Mexican.. Mixed like most Americans are..

Absolutley over the line. I do not see why people can't just call them BABIES. What is the need for terms like "mutt", "oreo" or "half breed"?? A child is a child no matter the color of their skin.
