I heard this today and was curious as to what everyone thinks.
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:Mongrel as in mixed-breed.
Does it matter where I heard it?
President Obama calls African-Americans aPresident Obama calls African-Americans a ‘mongrel people’

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:roflI cannot agree more.
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.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!
Oh :crazy3:, bad choice of words.
I would have bet my last dollar that this was another Goobieman "trap" thread. I can tell them a mile away.
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.BCR liblady SE102
