    I suppose it would depend on how traumatized one is by urban living.

    Thirty years ago I lived in SW MI, and was attending a math conference at MIT in Boston. My neighbor's brother lived there, so she asked me to deliver something to him at his office. As I was taking the elevator, alone, the door opened and a white woman approximately my age started to get in. She saw me there, muttered something, turned around and left, almost running. She looked terrified. I was a white male, mid thirties, dressed respectably, but I scared the hell out of her for some reason. Maybe she had been mugged or raped by someone who looked like me.

    On another occasion I was walking past a bus stop in downtown DC, and there were some young black males standing there. The look one gave me was decidedly unfriendly, but I ignored him and walked on. It may be profiling on my part, but I wouldn't have liked it if he followed me.
