Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Aren't you thinking of Alexandre Dumas ?

He considered himself, and was considered, a mulatto.

A couple jokes from the Wikipedia pages :

Answering someone who told him he must knew about niggers :

"Yes indeed, my fathe was a mulatto, my grandfather a nigger, and my great grandfather an ape. My family started where yours is ending"

A common joke about him :

"He's the first mulatto to have white niggers"

Dumas was well known to use a lot of ghost writers, pretty heading a writing studio ; and the French word for ghost writer is "niggers"
