I work for an embassy, I pay all self employment tax my self but at the end of the year my employer refunds 50% of what I paid. is this refund taxable?

Yes, the reimbursement you receive from your employer is taxable because it is considered income even though your employer is providing it to you to offset your self-employment tax.
