‘Mixed’ sounds bad. Hybrid is good. Some thoughts:
Hybrid as a ‘mongrel’
A class issue
In Ancient Rome, if you were a ‘hybrid’, you were essentially either:
- 1. Born of a free man + slave
- 2. Born of a Roman father and a foreign mother
The romans cared about Rome above all. In some ways … to be Roman was your ‘race’. My theory still holds strong — I believe we Americans should believe in the ‘American Race‘ if we truly desire to squelch racism and all this other stuff.
