Afro-Latino. They are both of African and Latino heritage.

Anyone gearing up for Thanksgiving? we don't live near any family so ours will be small as usual. We do have a conflict this year. Dh's favorite football team will be in town on TGD to play. I know he wants to go even if he won't say so. So what do you think?
I am looking forward to Thanksgiving, but not exactly thrilled. Once again, I will miss my families "Thanksgiving Dinner". I am so set in our traditons, that I am hesitant to eat with anyone else.
This year we are eating dinner with a family whose traditons are somewhat similar to my own, so I am hopeful. There should not be any paper plate eating while standing in front of the television surprises.
I am roasting the turkey and preparing the dressing, so I will pray that my cuklinary skills don't fail me.
What time is the game? Could you have dinner before or after the game?

I have always thought that mixed held negative connotations, like mutt, and mulatto.
Those books are interesting. I don't think that I care for the terminology, but maybe that is because most blacks in the country are of a combined heritage. Is a distinction only made when the additional ethnicities are blatantly obvious?
