In the article, he not only called blacks "mongrels", he called all Americans mongrels.


You should try listening to him say it himself instead of reading some slanted quoting. Context means everything sometimes.

I am not necessarily trying to defend his choice of word here but he definitely was not attacking anyone with it because it started with "WE ARE." The first person he called a mongrel was himself so while it may have been a poor choice of words, you will have a hard time making any victim case out of the actual statement he made.

Maybe this why all of his school records are sealed, its not to protect
Obama but to protect the schools reputation for turning out someone
like Obama...


So you do not know what schools Obama went to or does this sentence really encapsulate the whole debate right there?

Me too.

The thing I find most interesting about Obama is - - he does not jump when certain people/groups/factions say jump.

I'm smart enough to know the presidency is not one person. But he seems to take a methodical approach to all things. To take the time to study and examine. I much prefer it to "gut feeling" and "god told me so".

There are far better ways to say almost anything.

We can choose to understand his meaning - - - or be butts about it.


Likewise there is a worst way and a best way to express anything: better than worst would have been an improvement. As for his meaning, there was no misinterpretation, but disagreement.

Quick lesson - if someone says "We are a mongrel race" it is okay and true.

If someone says "You are a mongrel race", it is racist, evil, and untrue. Don't have facts to back this second part up, but is there an argument?

Obama could've used another term for mixed heritage than a term that is considered derogatory. His choice of words shows the world his lack of judgement.

Pick out some "nice" words from this list:



Mongrel:
Cape Colored, Eurasian, animal, bastard, beast, cattalo, citrange,
cross, crossbred, crossbreed, crossed, cur, dog, griffe,
half blood, half-bred, half-breed, half-caste, high yellow, hinny,
hound, hybrid, hyena, insect, interbred, ladino, liger, lurcher,
mestee, mestiza, mestizo, metis, metisse, mixblood, mixed-blood,
mulatto, mule, mustee, mutt, octoroon, pariah dog, pig, plumcot,
polecat, quadroon, quintroon, reptile, sambo, serpent, skunk,
snake, swine, tangelo, tigon, varmint, vermin, viper, whelp, worm,
zebrass, zebrule


It's just like when he used the A-word when addressing who was responsible for the Horizon explosion and Gulf oil leak.

Stateman my A-word!

Leave Obama alone!
He can say the "M" word if he wants to, but non-mongrels can't.

I'm really, really disappointed in ATS these days...I would have expected more of a pick up from this story of this quote from the same interview...


•There is a "reptilian side of our brain" that causes people to be cautious "if somebody looks different or sounds different."


Obama admits he's reptilian

Obama should pay much attention on his words,actually it is ok if he just speak of himself ,but it is a hurt and insult to speak of all the African-Americans.
