    Not a surprise.
    You're doing it again. Ignoring what is being said and instead responding to what you want people to have said. This is why you're not getting any answers to your questions. Explain why you did not add context to your OP, and why you are dishonestly claiming that people are having issue with who said it when the issue is the context in which it was said.

    Where it was said doesn't matter. Disagree? Why?

    That anyone said it at all -- doesn't matter.
    Disagree? Would your answer to the question change depending any of the above things?
    Explain why you did not include context in your OP and and why you are dishonestly claiming that people are addressing who said it when people are actually addressing the context in which it was said.

This is the point that he has refused to respond to.
    Go back and check Post #5.

    I believe Goobie clarified Mongrel in the same exact manner that Obama used the word.

    And how was the word used in the context of all of Obama's comments? That is the issue.

    No... its not.
    It doesn't matter what the context is. Its not offensive to state that African Americans are of mixed breed.

    I'd likely state that its multifaceted and would depend on how or why someone was using it. In a very generalized way I'd say its likely meant to be insulting, as the common use and reference to mongrel in most speech today is referencing to rabid dogs or mangy dogs.
    This distinction heres is based on the meaning of the term "mongrel" as asked in the question. You probably didn't notice that I cleared this up in post #5.
    That's not a context issue, that's a 'which meaning of the word do you mean" issue. The meaning CAN be discerned thru context, but you do not necessarily NEED context in order to determine it.
    So, your complaint falls flat. Sorry.

    Even more frankly, you are more than free to leave, as your simpering and sniveling adds nothing to the conversation. At the very least, my other detractors have hade the courtesy to at least TRY to defend their point.
    But, my questions, directly addressing your point, stand; your supposed boredom is a convenient cover for you not being to answer them while maintaining your point.

    After reading this thread, I realized that it is not going as the OP intended.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    Well, at this point, that's just willful ignorane on your part. I can't help you there, and if all you're planning to do is remain willfully ignorant, there's really no reason for me to respond to you further..

    No it has not.
    See above. Post #5 clarifies the issue to the point necessay to answer the question. You're just playing dumb.
    You -are- playing, right?
