My used-to-be conservative family member who is having a serious awakening just texted me that he‘s impressed with Castro, and that racism is a main issue that needs to be addressed repeatedly by candidates in the campaign.

He used to watch Fox nonstop.
For everyone who’s asking: I’ve had dozens of conversations that if I had to put them in a bucket would be about humanizing the real-life impact of Trump’s policies. We had several big heartfelt convos around families, separation, trauma, and immigration. And then I left on MSNBC
But he was also open to it somehow, and once compassion & empathy entered the picture, he saw every day experiences through a new lens and started coming to me to talk more about it. And I keep talking too, while holding the accountability line.

FWIW, he is not impressed w/Beto.
