Its a unifying mentality that brings together all people of all races under a single banner for a single cause. Anyone should be able to don Mandalorian armor if they can prove themselves worthy. And contrary to what Aurbere says, Mandalorians such as Canderous Ordo, Mandalore the Vindicated, Jaster Mereel, Jango and Boba Fett deserve to be respected and admired just as much as the Taung.
Am not saying they shouldn't be(though with Jango/Boba thats debatable for me....the absurd fans of those two have kinda pushed me away from them.), I just prefer the Taung when the Mandalorians were a specific group and not any that just someone could join if they proved themselves. It made the Mandalorians more unique and interesting.

Perhaps... but this is just a transition. Species die out, cultures die out, and new ones are born. *shrug*

I couldnt agree more....Now my manda' lore is a bit sketchy.. were humans introduced to the mando Taung after proving themselves or was the bloodline of the Taung reduced through inter species breeding with humans over time much like the dark jedi with the native sith which resulted in the purebloods

I RP my BH's as purist's dedicating to the honor of the old Taung ways much like yourself, now because my mando' lore is sketchy, I rp that I dont like none human mando's and fully respect human ones more so.. (still show respect where its due to the none human ones who have proven themselves) I only ask regarding the breeding in anything as novels etc ive read or pictures ive seen of any Mandalorians after the Taung were always human/described human, its only since the SWTOR side of things that other species turned up as Mandalorians etc hence why I rp to showing more repspect to Human Mando's, any clarification on this wold be greatly appreciated

The Taung just basically died out after the Mandalorian Wars, the last Taung was Mandalore the Ultimate by that time Ultimate began to bring in humans and other species into being Mandalorians. But it wasn't until 15 BBY that it really started going that way.

Side note: I'm cheering for the Death Watch in TCW. Canderous, MtU and Cassus Fett would be rolling in their graves at the sight of these "Mandalorians".

Mandos that cassus fett and canderous would be proud of, Kal Skirrata(maybe), Waylon Vau(definitely). Canderous would of personally killed the death watch himself for dishonoring the mandalorian name. Death watch are a bunch of homicidal maniacs with heavy armor and weapons, not mandos.

This is similar to athletes from years ago being more impressive than athletes today. It seems right on paper that the legends of yesterday are just as good or better, but it's just not true. Their abilities and technology just don't stack up.
