Loved this (and your musings in general).

Really appreciate the input, Jessica. I’ve made some edits to clarify the difference between the audience we can hope to reach and the people who were driving #BoycottStarWarsVII. Almost everyone holds implicit bias — it’s virtually inescapable in our society. But most people aren’t proud of it. If we approach people who are fair-minded the right way, we can move things forward. Maybe there’s a path to rehabilitating people who are proud of their bigotry, but I’ll let someone else handle that. I’ll use the vitriol as a tool to help me engage people who haven’t ever been asked to face their bias. There are plenty of people we can move if we approach them right.
