Then let me make myself more clear: There is often bias and misinformation in the interpretation of statistics. People often twist the numbers to their own use. Unless you know the context in which the data was gathered, it's meaningless.
A principled view for example, implies that an individual has a firm understanding of the underlying principle(s) of events and the rules and laws which govern them inherently and according to our consensus.
Toleration and tolerance are terms used in social, cultural and religious contexts to describe attitudes and practices that prohibit discrimination against those practices or group memberships that may be disapproved of by those in the majority.
Now that Barack Obama steps to the front of the Democratic field, we need to stop talking about his race, and start talking about his policies and his politics.
social issues. Mr. Obama had the audacity to open a stadium rally by saying, "All praise and glory to God!" but says that Christian leaders speaking for life and marriage have "hijacked" - hijacked - Christianity.
He is pro-partial birth abortion, and promises to appoint Supreme Court justices who will rule any restriction on it unconstitutional.
He espouses the abortion views of Margaret Sanger, one of the early advocates of racial cleansing.

I don't hate African Americans. I just hate Racist African Americans that are running for President. There is no doubt that Obama and his wife despise Caucasians. If he wasn't racist he wouldn't have married her and went to that church for years. Im only sticking up for the White Man. As a white middle class American I feel like I jobs are being given to undereducated African Americans just because of their race. The African Americans segregate themselves by wanting special treatment for the so called minorities. If they want that then I will treat them as such. Obama and his wife are no different. If he isn't elected president there will be riots in the black community. Mark my words this will happen. They will Riot. You can quote me on that also. I'm sick of there special treatment. I do not get any special treatment and had to achieve everything I have on my own. If they don't want to be labeled anymore then they should stand for equality for everyone not just African Americans. If you want to label me as a racist go for it. It doesn't bother me at all. Good Day

A crack team of cybernauts will form a rapid response internet “war room” to track and respond aggressively to online rumours that Barack Obama is unpatriotic and a Muslim.
"Obama dragged Lieberman by the hand to a far corner of the Senate chamber and engaged in what appeared to reporters in the gallery as an intense, three-minute conversation," Roll Call reported. Using forceful, but not angry, hand gestures, Obama literally backed up Lieberman against the wall, leaned in very close at times, and appeared to be trying to dominate the conversation, as the two talked over each other in a few instances.
Now, without meaning to insult the entire US portion of the membership, I'll just say that the perception of many people outside the US (including myself) is that the United States is an extremely racist and violent (gun loving) place in some areas. Witness the Rodney King episode, the existence of the KKK, organizations like Stormfront, fiery rhetoric by preachers and ministers on both "sides" and many statistics like those on prison populations etc.
