Hi, I am not a teacher,

What is breed[/quote]?

The breed is the race of horses, dog, or another animal or human. Maybe your parents have not the same origin, one of them is a Spanish white man and the other is an African, it's what people call 'Half-meed'.

Hope it is clear now for you.

Have a nice day.
