One consistent pattern in conservative behavior is that the scope of their empathy seems to be limited to personal connection. The easy example is the various homophobic politicians who made a 180 when their kids came out, and seemed to gain actual understanding in the process. That’s why this gives me some hope – it provides a personal connection to some of the experiences of systemic racism, for those who haven’t been able to see the problem. It won’t solve everything, of course, but this will be a powerful tool for persuasion, I think. Even better, it provides a jumping-off point for comparing the tiny, imagined oppression of people with MAGA hats to the actual experiences of people who aren’t white, cis, and straight.
