    Re: Are African-Americans a mongrel people?

    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.
    I use a lot of satire and sarcasm so keep that in mind when reading my posts.

    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 , bad choice of words.
    Don't think he meant it, like it's being taken though.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    I have never heard that terminology and would be VERY insulted if I were an African American.

    I would have bet my last dollar that this was another Goobieman "trap" thread. I can tell them a mile away.

    African-Americans aren't a mixed-breed?
