    The 1st amendment thanks you.


    Becauise I use the same term that they do? How is that racist?
    Doesn't that make everone associated with the NAACP a racist, too?
    Well Goobie it is just too bad that the The 1st amendment did not thank ME in reguards to what I had to say to you in this thread.

    President Obama needs to look over the dictionary. Mongrel means "dog". If he wants to say that his race is "dog", then let him be and let him face the fury of African-American people of being embarrassed at being called "dog" by their own hero.

    Neither have I concluded anything about your ability. I only express my surprise about your "don't pay attention" on the one hand but certainly showing enthusiasm on the same thing on the other hand. I didn't even try to force you for an answer because I know it is beyond my power and limit. I must respect your boundary. If you don't feel I am fair, you can tell me what is the proper move for me. I can consider.

    Exact word from one dictionary for mongrel: an offspring of parents of different breeds, one of uncertain ancestry. (As to the word breed, the same dictionary does not refer it or relate it to dog)

    Exanct word from another dictionary for mongrel: offspring of mixed breed. (As to the word breed, the same dictionary says: kind of plant or animal usu. developed by man. Which man is not animal? which man is not developed by man?)

    Mongrel is not a negative term until people attach a neagative meaning to it. Is the word "color" neutral enough? However, some people just feel furious when he is called a colored person. It may have been so much better if he is invisible. Or will the same person call the whites "white"__the color that contains the most color components?

    The two statements are in no way contridictory, if that's what you are implying.

    Statements from the NAACP have shown up in the news from time to time, I'm sure.

    I must have seen/heard a few, at some point.

    I show enthusiasm for the NAACP?

    Where did you get that idea?

    Not even sure what that is supposed to mean.

    The net effect, however, is that 'colored' is a mainstream term used to describe people of color, and as such, I am not in any way concerned with any offense that you may take from my use of same.

    Well, mongrel is a known derogatory term but, if we go by, ‘mixing of races’ then most of us equal mongrel. You’d think Obama would have used a different term but, oh well.
