Not sure what to think.  If people feel unsafe, why aren't people trying to remedy that underlying issues?  As a female, there are a lot of rapes on campuses -- and that gets buried and the woman is scorned and blamed.  So I have very missed feelings on this.

When I, as a Canadian, see your election polls I am continually amazed at the breakdowns: Hispanic, Black, Male, Female, Evangelicals, White Supremacists . . .  Wouldn't it make more sense in 2016 to simply pool together as "people"?  Can't a White Supremacist be concerned about the economy and foreign affairs? Can't men and women be concerned about the same issues?  This sort of segregation worries me.

This question reminds me of "Black lives matter" and "White Lives Matter". There has been so much in the news about the "Black Lives Matter" folks but I read recently that the "White Lives Matter" folks are being called racist.

I don't know what's up with that...should be "All live matter"...

It does sound like a step backward and it is beyond me why those who fought long and hard to stop segregation would want such a thing.

America gives us all a chance to cast off these petty differences if we choose. Even with all our rights & rules, we fail. Some get stuck or perpetrate for selfish reasons this dysfunctional tagging and make a false life out of it. I see mankind for what it is which consists of a male or female.... not races...

I live in one of the most culturally diversified cities in the US. When it comes to dorm housing every year this bias gets blown out of proportion.

In fact, no president or chancellor lasts long locally. 

With work place it is lesser obvious until the economy turns sour.
