This was a question I saw on a thread at Muatto.org but noone seemed to answer it so if anyone can please do!

I feel that griffes and sacatras and quadroons are mixed because they are not 100% only one ethnicity, but do you have to be a certain amount of mixed to be considered mullatto?(mixed)

leave your thoughts please!

I think a mulatto is 1/2. i think quadroons are 1/4. I don't know about the rest. Look the words up in the dictionary. If you find out please post it.

White + Black= Mullato

Black + Mullato= Griffe

White + Mullato= Quadroon

Griffe + Black= Sacatra

White + Quadroon= Metif

White + Metif= Meamelouc

White + Meamelouc= Quadroon

White + Quadroon= Octoroon

A Sacatra was half Griffe and half Black. A Griffe was half Black and half Mulatto. A Marabon was half Mulatto and half Griffe. A Mulatto was half White and half Black. A Quadroon was half White and half Mulatto. A Metif was half White and half Quadroon. A Meamelouc was half White and half Metif. A Quarteron was half White and half Meamelouc. A Sang-mele was half White and half Quarteron.

People went as far as to define how much Black blood each of these categories possessed. A Mulatto had half Black blood and half White. A Quadroon was ¼ Black and ¾ White. An Octoroon was the child of a Quadroon and a White, this person carried less than ¼ of Black blood. A Cascos who was the child of a Mulatto and a Mulatto, carried less than ½ of Black blood. A Sambo, who was the child of a Mulatto and a Black, carried ¾'s of Black blood. A Mango, who was the child of a Sambo and a Black, carried the same Black blood as a Sambo. A Mustifee who was the child of an Octoroon and a White, carried less than 1/16th of Black blood. A Mustifino, who was the child of a Mustifee and a White, carried less than 1/32 of Black blood. This got complicated. Only the categories where the person had less than ¼ of Black blood was considered "passing,"

I know right? Intense stuff.

I'm just trying to figure out what I would have been classified as lol.

My grandmother is a "Cascos" but I just classify as "Mullato" since it doesn't specify what Cascos + Black=

:/
I think I'm a Sacatra.

to answer your question yes, only people who are biracial or 50/50 can be labeled mulatto not griffe's or Quadroons. To me your theory is wrong though because Oprah is 9% native America(and 91% black), Megan fox is 1/16 native American(the rest white), Chris Rock is 20% white(and 80% black), and etc and are not mixed. Oprah is a black woman, chris rock is a black man, and megan fox is a white women. Most people in America are not 100% any more but that doesn't make all of them mixed. If your theory was correct then most white Americans and 95% of African Americans will be labeled as mixed, which is ridiculous. is a black person has a white great great great great great great grandfather and the rest of the rest of the relatives are black does that make them mixed, nope. so to you a person who is 98% black and 2% white is mixed too, ridiculous.

i feel as though quadroons and griffes are mixed or mulatto or however you'd like to call it. any thing less than 25% shoul d not count to me, because as previously stated, then everyone in america would be practically considered mixed/mulatto. thatz too much.

Most "blacks" are probably mixed, but not a lot of whites. I know I'm not mixed. Pure white all the way back, came over on the Mayflower (ancester of Stephen Hopkins). No fence jumping in my family tree.
