From SunTimes.com:

President Obama was asked by Barbara Walters on “The View” why he calls himself black when he is biracial, the product of a white mother and a black father. In answering, Obama may have used a word that may spark some controversy. He called African Americans “sort of a mongrel people” though “true for white America as well.”

Here’s the exchange:

OBAMA: Well, you know, when I was young and going through the identity crisis that any teenager goes through — I wrote a book about this.

WALTERS: Yes. … We all read it.

OBAMA: You know, part of what I realized was that if the world saw me as African American, then that wasn’t something that I needed to run away from. That’s something that I could go ahead and embrace. And the interesting thing about the African-American experience in this country is that we are sort of a mongrel people. I mean, we’re all kind of mixed up.

WHOOPI GOLDBERG: Yeah.
