Many women have said it better, but it's time for men to join them, too. This is a problem for the entire country.

Disgraceful. We need more women like Rosa Park. But in general women do not get much respect even if they are not black.

Thank you Cal for the article. Feel that the Republican party neglects all females regardless of color. Luckily, I'm an educated, employed and insured Asian/African American. Looking forward to having a female president in 2016, hopefully, the voice of all women will be vocal at that time

Thank you for the article. As much as women are being attacked, women of color are being more marginalized than ever. And in many cases the racism is blatant. I want it all to stop!!!

All women, No matter what color or nationality, should all be treated equal. Same goes for employment opportunities. Color or sex should never not play a role when it comes to employment either. Thanks Cal

TY Cal everything a black person does in this country is dangerous for blacks even shopping is shopping while black. Diversity must be embraced and xenophobia has no place in this country.

People are judged by the choices they make for themselves.

American politics want to neglect woman whether they're white, black, red or purple. Time to get rid of the Repugs and their constituents before they are successful. Despicable!

This is totally unacceptable but unfortunately true.
My younger daughter in law is Black and there is still a lot of prejudice in our country in politics and all areas.
Thanks Cal
