MESTIZO ( it does not change)


Explanation:
The word does not change in english.

CROSSBREED is for ANIMALS, not for people.

To confirm:

From ENCARTA WORLD ENGLISH DICTIONARY:

mestizo

mes·ti·zo [mes t z ] (plural mes·ti·zos, mes·ti·zoes) noun
person of combined ancestry: somebody who has parents or ancestors of different racial origins, especially somebody in Latin America of both Native American and European ancestry. Mestizos form the largest population group in many Latin American countries.


[Late 16th century. Via Spanish, from Latin mixtus , the past participle of miscere "to mix" (source of English mix and meddle).]

Encarta World English Dictionary. [American Edition]

Explanation:
Being x and y the races of his ancestors. Crosbreed refers only to animals (Collins dictionary). But you might be referring to an animal, and then you can use it.

Good luck!
