Why is it okay for black people to call people with mixed races “mongrels” and white people can’t say that stuff? It doesn’t matter who says it… be it either black or white… it’s still a racist term either way. When black people use the term “mongrel” it’s still racist against whites.
Where’s the outrage here? Looking at the comments in the video, there is none and they’re acting like Obama is a hero. This was an older interview, btw. Obama says the word, “mongrel” at about 9:00 mark in the video.
Check it out.

It’s called “context”, Kev. If you’re being self-deprecating it’s one thing, but when someone uses a term with malice it’s a different thing.
Understandable but it’s still hypocritical either way, though.
However, back in 2010 Obama still got a lot of flak for saying that… like this article for example… read some of the comments and you can see people criticizing him.
