The strongest relationships found in this study focus on two variables. However, it was also found that the ideologies held by the respondents about de- sirable race relations between the Black and White communi- ties was also strongly related to most of the dependent variables.
E-mailers go after Sen. Barack Obama has been a particular target of anonymous e-mail; we at PolitiFact have received more negative e-mails about him than any other candidate, by a significant margin. Typically, e-mails portray him as unpatriotic and un-American.
The latest chain e-mail involves his wife. The e-mail looks at a research paper Michelle Obama wrote while a student at Princeton University 23 years ago. Not only does she see separate black and white societies in America, but she elevates black over white in her world.
It also uses real quotations from the thesis, though a few are taken out of context. The thesis is available on the Internet; the politics news site Politico reported on it in February and posted a copy it had obtained from Princeton University. We downloaded a copy, which appears to be complete with no numbered pages missing.
We read it, but we did not find the phrases the e-mail describes. We took the additional step of scanning the document through optical character recognition software so we could search its text electronically.
An automated search did not find the words "crime," "hatred," "hate," "ineradicably," or "racist" in the document. Every senior at Princeton writes a thesis or finishes an independent project.
Sociology uses scientific methods to study human group behavior. Obama was especially interested in the attitudes of Princeton alumni in regard to improving the lives of lower-income blacks. To document the change in attitudes, Obama devised an question survey and mailed it to black alumni.

Here is a fuller excerpt: Regardless of the circumstances under which I interact with Whites at Princeton, it often seems as if, to them, I will always be Black first and a student second.
But Obama writes a few paragraphs later that her earlier assumptions were changing, too: For example, as I enter my final year at Princeton, I find myself striving for many of the same goals as my White classmates — acceptance to a prestigious graduate or professional school or a high paying position in a successful corporation.
Thus, my goals after Princeton are not as clear as before.As is commonly known, Michelle Obama wrote her Bachelor of Arts thesis while at Princeton on a race-related topic. It should come as no surprise to anyone who observed her eight years as First Lady that she would chose as her thesis topic ‘Blackness,’ considering her well-documented race obsession.
I saw someone online claim that the following is a quote from Barack Obama’s thesis at Columbia contains the following segment: “ the Constitution allows for many things, but what it does.
Michelle Obama's senior year thesis at Princeton University, obtained from the campaign by Politico, shows a document written by a young woman grappling with a society in which a black Princeton. An email has been circulating that access to Michelle Obama’s senior thesis at Princeton University is restricted until November 5, — the day after the election.
Michelle Obama's racial obsession is traceable to her semi-illiterate thesis on being black at Princeton, which Christopher Hitchens once noted "wasn't. “I have found that at Princeton, no matter how liberal and open-minded some of my white professors and classmates try to be toward me, I sometimes feel like a visitor on campus; as if I really didn’t belong,” Obama wrote in her sociology thesis, “Princeton-Educated Blacks and the Black Community.” “Regardless of the circumstances.
