I don't think he caused upset with his use of the word. Rather that he had the tenacity to use "uppity" to describe the attitude of Me-again Markle!
He was spot on in that case.

I have to admit, AT, that I have never heard the word "mulatto" and had to Google it!

Re: Freedom of Speech

Mulatto is not an acceptable term to address a mixed race person today .
It is offensive .
It derives from the Spanish word for mule and means half black half white .
