Another Sambo definition. In fact… three more. HAAAAA!

 

sambo - Collaborative International Dictionary of English v.0.48 :

  Sambo \Sam"bo\, n. [Sp. zambo bandy-legged, the child of a negro
     and an Indian; prob. of African origin.]
     1. A negro; sometimes, the offspring of a black person and a
        mulatto; -- formerly used colloquially or with humorous
        intent, but now considered offensive or racist by
        African-Americans. [Derogatory and offensive]

     Note: A children's book named Little Black Sambo was at one
           time popular in elementary schools, but the book has
           been removed from reading lists in many American
           schools due to the development of a reduced acceptance
           of patronizing depictions of negros, as well as the
           negative associations of the word itself.
           [Webster 1913 Suppl. +PJC]

     2. In Central America, an Indian and negro half-breed, or
        mixed blood.
        [Webster 1913 Suppl.]

  Sambo \Sam"bo\, n. [Sp. zambo, sambo.]
     A colloquial or humorous appellation for a negro; sometimes,
     the offspring of a black person and a mulatto; a zambo.
     [1913 Webster]
