"We are sort of a mongrel people."
Instead, our President said this about African Americans.
Typical media reaction. They defend the President:
The president did not appear to be making an inflammatory remark with his statement. The definition of mongrel as an adjective is defined as "of mixed breed, nature, or origin," according to dictionary.com.
Of course, the media did not bother to give the entire dictionary.com definition:
of mixed breed, nature, or origin; of or like a mongrel.
Like a mongrel?
Let's define mongrel, shall we?
bastard: derogatory term for a variation that is not genuine; something irregular or inferior or of dubious origin; "the architecture was a kind of bastard suggesting Gothic but not true Gothic"
An animal or a plant resulting from various interbreedings, especially a dog of mixed or undetermined breed.
Just imagine if a conservative had said the same thing. Michael Steele?
