"We are sort of a mongrel people"

According to "The Hill"
The president appeared on ABC’s morning talk show “The View” Thursday, where he talked about the forced resignation of Agriculture Department official Shirley Sherrod, his experience with race and his roots.

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."
Can you imagine the rabid furor that would follow if Condolezza Rice, Clarance Thomas, or Michael Steele had made such a comment? Every mainstream media outlet in the country would be demanding their immediate resignation.
