    NOTHING is racist right now until some brain dead, liberal, Left Democrat idiot claims it is.

    No, I do not think the term is racist. It defines correctly what a person is. I use the Cambodian term "khoun-Khat" which loosely translates as "cut-child" and that is acceptable in polite society.

    I have a number of relatives with half-caste children. Australian-Dutch, Australian-Danish, Cambodian-Vietnamese, Cambodian-Chinese. I even have a Cambodian-Australian daughter,

    Many of my Cambodian relatives, including my wife, are Cambodian but have some Chinese ancestry.

      @Armourer -- Australian-Dutch and Australian-Danish are both WHITE, so your statement is inaccurate.

    Yes 100%

    the Only words that are Not Racist today is to refer to them as Non-White

    do you know it is Offensive in some parts of the EU to order a Flat White Coffee we have to use coffee flat with milk

    Cher was a half breed. That is about the same thing, and it is not racist. I am glad I do not have the karma the half-caste have to work through.

      All of humanity is mixed now, and "race" is an outmoded and flawed concept.

    Next month, who knows.
