No big surprise in this survey's result. Trump is more racist than Clinton too, so it's hardly surprising that his supporters tend to exhibit more racist attitudes than Clinton's supporters by a wide margin, but his supporters' degree of racism also stands out from that of other Republican candidates, one of whom's supporters' attitudes are little different to those of Clinton's supporters. Once again it's no big surprise to learn that that candidate is Kasich.
The "Wi-Fried" episode disturbed many people and forced some Australian schools to justify their use of Wi-Fi to frightened parents.
I agree with Fairfax journalist Michael Lallo's conclusion:
It's not enough for a reporter to declare, "We're encouraging debate", then wash their hands of the consequences. Especially if those consequences include needless anxiety in viewers.

It is common for researchers submitting papers to academic publishers not to get paid despite handing over their copyright. This results in publishers getting their articles, including peer reviewing and most of their editing for free. Anyone not affiliated with a university must pay the publisher to access the material despite the fact that much of it was commissioned and published by taxpayers through government research grants. Thankfully, times are changing.
With political opponents and critics afraid and under pressure from the police and judiciary, it seems that Malaysia's corrupt PM might just be right. I hope for the sake of Malaysians that he isn't and that he is forced to step down. The evidence against him and his associates continues to mount and, in any normal democracy, his resignation would have happened long ago.
Here's some worthwhile advice on living from together with some wise and some possibly not so wise quotes from stoic philosophers.
In her keynote address at ISTE, Ruha Benjamin described a societal landscape in crisis where children “live in parallel realities” with entrenched social practices that empower some and handicap others along racial, financial and gender fault lines.
Benjamin says teachers should ask, "How do we make our schools laboratories of democratic participation, rather than sites where inequity is reproduced?”
