Is it really this hard for you guys to put yourself in someone else’s shoes for a moment? Someone who isn’t the majority in this country, be it numerical majority (white) or power majority (male)?

Why is it a requirement to get all fired up about this speech? That if one doesn’t get fired up about it, that automatically indicates that one must be unable to remotely identify with others?

Why is it so hard for you to put yourself in someone else’s shoes who does not share your opinion and not be critical of them?

When the plain truth is spoken loud n’ clear to an audience of that size it should be applauded no matter how well you thought it was delivered.

When did I say I wouldn’t have applauded if I had been in the audience?

You don’t have to be in the same room to be in the audience.

So when you watched it the first time, you stood up and applauded just like the audience did?

Dismissing it with a “Meh” shows you to be uncaring. Not saying you are, but that’s the picture your reaction paints.

Sorry, I mean to sound uncaring. I do care. The speech just didn’t move me.
