I suppose you guys think that Obama was right for making the comment.
Btw, anyone know the other leader who made the same comment about Americans?
DNA tests a few years back on people who consider themselves "English" - even staunchly so, and as apparently purely English as the driven snow - revealed them to be 'mongrel people' with scrips and scraps of 'heritage' from all over the place, including the Orient, Africa and South Asia. Astonishingly so.
You'd have me believe that in the U.S. it is different? That the 'races' and all their DNA and 'heritage' is carefully separated and their lineage 'pure'? I care not whether Obama did or didn't make the comment. What I do know is that it's essentially true and it's refreshing to hear a leader say it.
Perhaps it's a case of Only Nixon Could Go To China, and Only Obama Could State The Bleeding Obvious re: 'Mongrelness'.
However Eladar, your glass Political Correctness chin is duly noted.
