I have to chime in here too. Both Spike and Cynthia are correct. If one is truly an individualist, such percentages -- such as how many women voted for Clinton, how many Blacks are in prison, how many White males are Republicans, how many Asians are engineers -- should not matter. All of this would only be of interest to the specialists in sociology and related fields. However, since a lot of collectivism has seeped into our culture, too many people -- sadly, even people on this list! how many polls have there been done here!?! -- tend to look at themselves and others as members of groups first, as individuals second or not at all.

And since a lot of people in power want to divide and conquer so they can unite and rule (to borrow a phrase from Ellsworth M. Toohey:), this plays right into the hands of any powermonger who comes along.
