The question asked is “how do we calm these people down?”
The people who actually feel terrifying threat to themselves and their families never even seems to be contemplated.
Until then we are going to keep getting this same bad false equivalency.
Women that they’ll be assaulted without redress
Muslims and immigrants that they’ll be attacked & driven from the country
People of color that they’ll be harassed & killed by police
These people exist. Their fears are valid.
The difference matters a lot.
And yes they’re also anxious about how technology is changing our world.
But we’re all anxious about those things. It’s just some of us have chosen to menace others as a solution.
That difference matters a lot.
