So often in politics, the context in which a statement is made can be all the difference. Such is the case with President Obama's recent radio appearance, in which he used the N-word to describe race relations in the United States. When provided with a transcript of the conversation containing the controversial remark, more than half of the public reported his remarks as acceptable, compared to only a third of individuals when provided no context at all.
