    He clearly used this term in a non-derogatory way so what is there to discuss.

    I'm waiting on Fox news to make a big deal out of this though, there audience surely isn't intelligent enough to distinguish what he meant by it so it's basically free fuel for the fire to Fox.
    I use a lot of satire and sarcasm so keep that in mind when reading my posts.

    Well, not to you I am sure. To people who want to know what was actually said, then yes it is important.

    Wow. "We just know more about it". Good Lord, the arrogance of this man!

    I'm kind of interested to see how the different media outlets and radio talk shows report on this as well. Should be interesting to watch.

    You honestly think that if a conservative said "African Americans are sort of a mongrel race. We all are, really."

    Chris Matthews would be spitting up a storm taking it out of context and calling for the firing of whoever said it.

    But, go on attacking the poster rather than discussing the topic
    The topic is disingenuous from the get go.
    You planned on getting a bunch of liberals to say that someone using the word mongrel was racist or bigoted.
    Then you were going to spring the trap that Obama said it, only you would of withheld the actual context of it.

    It's pretty dishonest.
    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.

    Re: Are African-Americans a mongrel people?

    Reminds me of these kinds of instances:

    The director of D.C. Mayor Anthony A. Williams's constituent services office resigned after being accused of using a racial slur, the mayor's office said yesterday.

    David Howard, head of the Office of Public Advocate, said he used the word "niggardly" in a Jan. 15 conversation about funding with two employees.

    "I used the word 'niggardly' in reference to my administration of a fund," Howard said in a written statement yesterday. "Although the word, which is defined as miserly, does not have any racial connotations, I realize that staff members present were offended by the word.

    Guess those staff members didn't pay attention in English class.
    The devil whispered in my ear, "You cannot withstand the storm." I whispered back, "I am ​the storm."
