    You might want to post a thread with an honest question if you actually want answers. However, what you do is something that a long ago poster once described... and something he did as often as you. You are creating a poll to soapbox, not to discuss an issue.

    No it doesn't. It provides a definition of a word. It does not provide the context in which the word was used in the presentation that was made.

    And how would that have changed your response?
    I think your answer has already been put forth in this thread. For me, the absense of the balance of the conversation leading to that particular piece of it, gave me incomplete information to base a credible response on, even more than the lack of citation of who said it. Since I really didn't pass any judgment, because of the lack of pertinent info, it might have allowed me to present an informed opinion instead.

    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.

    African American people are mixed breed, making then inferior to pure blooded whites"

    Both use the same line, both have entirely different contexts based on the words surrounding it

    Yeah?
    Whats any of that have to do with the question I asked, especially given the clarification of the meaning of the word 'mongrel' given in post #5?

    Your ignorant and bigoted opinion, as mentioned before, is noted and discarded.

    On the contrary -- it provides the meaning of the word exactly as it was meant.
    That's all the 'context' you need to answer the question.
