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 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. If you listen closely after Obama finished, Whoopi Goldberg was like “YEEEAAAHHHH!!!!!!”

Theo Federick –
My fellow African-Americans:
It’s now become clear that we have gotten on the wrong bus with Obama. His economic policies will not work—9.7% unemployment nationwide, and WORSE for blacks! He’s going to grant Amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants, and it’s going to make it that much harder for us to find work! With his health care program, OUR health care will be rationed,just like everyone else’s! WE too will have to deal with the weight of increased taxes—even as we try to pay our mortgages and other bills! And now….he calls us “mongrels”….. “MONGRELS”….in front of a mostly white audience! “MONGRELS”, EH? I’m getting off this bus—-NObama!!
