When asked about his background, which includes a black father and white mother, Obama said of African-Americans: "We are sort of a mongrel people."I guess "The Won" ran out of Special Olympics "jokes" to tell.
"I mean we're all kinds of mixed up," Obama said. "That's actually true of white people as well, but we just know more about it."
The president's remarks were directed at the roots of all Americans. The definition of mongrel as an adjective is defined as "of mixed breed, nature, or origin," according to dictionary.com.
Obama's friend, Robert Byrd, who recently left this Earth to the great Klavern underground, once said something similar:
I shall never fight in the armed forces with a Negro by my side ... Rather I should die a thousand times, and see Old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds.But hey, since they're Democrats, they can get away with it. Imagine if a Republican uttered that same description of blacks as Obama or Byrd did.
