Disambiguate what is meant by mongrel. A shallow insulting 'mongrel' or a mixed blood worthless uncultured sortof 'mongrel'. Who did you hear this from?
 
I don't know what that means.
 
I know what it means and I know it originates from the most despicable of people.
The source must be some sewer..
This "poll" is lower than the basement where it belongs.

Mongrel as in mixed-breed.
Does it matter where I heard it?

It mattered to me. Haaha!! 'Til I looked up what it meant in an online dictionary, I was going to report the thread. And then I found this:

President Obama calls African-Americans a ‘mongrel people’
By Sam Youngman - 07/29/10 11:00 AM ET

NEW YORK — President Obama waded into the national race debate in an unlikely setting and with an unusual choice of words: telling daytime talk show hosts that African-Americans are “sort of a mongrel people.”

The president appeared on ABC’s morning talk show “The View” Thursday, where he talked about the forced resignation of Agriculture Department official Shirley Sherrod, his experience with race and his roots.

:rofl:rofl:rofl

What a hoot!!! Honestly, he's somethin' else.

I cannot agree more.

STOP IT!!!! I can't take it anymore!!!!
 
Then, Obama said about African-Americans in general, “We are sort of a mongrel people.”

“I mean we’re all kinds of mixed up,” Obama said. “That’s actually true of white people as well, but we just know more about it.”


Wow. "We just know more about it". Good Lord, the arrogance of this man!
 
I think when he said this he meant it as in a way to describe the African American culture. Mongrel as in mixed cultures then yes I would actually agree with that.

Care to explain your poll response?
 
I disagree strongly with the presidents wording. Not much more to say there. He doesn't sound like he knows what he's talking about however. He needs a dooby to clear his head.

lol, I think it's safe to say black people probably do know more about it...Us whites are not the ones whose culture was forcefully mixed with another via slavery.

Oh :crazy3:, bad choice of words.
Don't think he meant it, like it's being taken though.
 
I have never heard that terminology and would be VERY insulted if I were an African American.

African-Americans aren't a mixed-breed?

my vote contradicts my response, I jumped the gun as soon as I heard mongrel as a way to describe blacks..but as I said previously I would agree with this when speaking of culutre.

Now, what fun would that be?

Very difficult to put in words. Yes they are mixed. No more or less mixed than alot of white people. How, though, are they responsable for their culture when it is essentially an adoption of white, american culture. Complex issue, this mongrel word, he opened up a box of confusion.
