THEY TOLD ME IF I VOTED REPUBLICAN, WE’D HAVE A PRESIDENT WHO CALLED BLACK AMERICANS “A MONGREL PEOPLE.” And they were right! President Obama calls African-Americans a ‘mongrel people’. “Obama did not appear to be making an inflammatory remark with his statement and the audience appeared to receive it in the light-hearted manner that often accompanies interviews on morning talk shows.” Well, sure. It’s only racist if a Republican says this kind of thing.
But actually, I think Obama’s just channeling Bill Murray’s “mutts” speech in Stripes. Which is a great speech!
