I am white and I grew up poor.

I know I used the word sympathy but I don’t mean for you to have sympathy for poor Trump supporters — I think it would be smart for you to have empathy for them though. Empathy would give you the ability to understand them and their motivations. Sympathy means that you feel bad for them. The majority of Trump supporters wouldn’t want your sympathy anyway.

Empathy is a tool you can use against them.
