These non-English terms for "race-mixing" are not considered as offensive as "miscegenation", although they have historically been tied to the caste system (casta) that was established during the colonial era in Spanish-speaking Latin America.Information about the treatment of persons in mixed marriages, specifically between white and black people, was scarce among the sources consulted by the Research Directorate.

The term miscegenation entered the English language in the 19th century as racial segregation began to become more formalized in the United States.
It was used specifically to refer to interracial marriage and interracial sexual relations.
The word was coined in an anonymous propaganda pamphlet published in New York City in December 1863, during the American Civil War.
The pamphlet was entitled Miscegenation: The Theory of the Blending of the Races, Applied to the American White Man and Negro.
