My husband is Nigerian, I'm Canadian and we're expecting our first child next month. My best friend often refers to my expected son as a "Mocha Baby" and I find it kind of offensive, although I can't say exactly why. (Maybe it feels like she is making a joke out of our interracial family?)
Am I just being over sensitive? I realize my son (and any future children) will have to deal with lots of variations of the "What ARE you question" as he is biracial and will look exotic, but I can't help but feel a little ticked when I hear the term "Mocha Baby".
