What does hatred mean?
Hatred is a profoundly emotional negativity towards someone or something. Hatred is manifested through hostility, extreme anger, and negativity. Hatred can be a springboard towards extreme behaviours such as violence towards the person or people involved, or as an extreme or excessive response to a tangible item such as art work, physical accident, or constructed items. It can also be manifested as a result of behaviours or practices. Hatred can be either ego-centric, or it can be pervasive and meritless, such as racism, or anti-Semitism.

What is the role of the house minority whip?
Whether it's the majority whip or the minority whip, this is the person who makes sure members of his or her party are rounded up for important votes; the whip also tries to make sure those members vote the way party leadership wants them to vote. The majority whip is from the party in power; the minority whip is from the party not in power. Currently (2012), the majority party in the House is the Republicans, so the majority whip would be a Republican. The party out of power is the Democrats, so the minority whip would be a Democrat.

Which is more difficult o control a minority faction or majority faction?
A majority faction is generally more difficult to control in a standard democracy because, with one vote per person, they will overall have more votes than a minority faction, therefore their ideas will come into effect. To stifle a minority faction one must merely outvote them, whereas, oftentimes for majority factions you must spread the vote to many smaller (state) governments. This is where the "Republic" form of democracy was suggested by James Madison, which allows representatives to make informed decisions rather than fall to "schemes of oppression" of the majority people. So, in short, majority's harder to hold back. You just have to outvote minority.
Why might electing a president with a minority vote be more controversial under a popular vote system than under the Electoral college system?
In order to win in the electoral college, a majority is required. There is no such thing as a minority winner there. If no one gets a majority, the House of Representatives elects the President from the three top vote-getters. Every state gets one vote. If they choose a candidate with a minority of the votes, the result would probably be just as controversial as when a person with a plurality of popular votes loses in the electoral college.
