Accidental Courtesy: Daryl Davis, Race & America ★★★★

Intense. Daryl Davis has incredible patience and unparalleled empathy. The world could use more like him. The confrontation between him and young black lives matter activists is captivating. I think Daryl is treated unfairly by these brash young people who seemingly don't understand the politics they are trying to engage through activism. One of them goes so far as to ignorantly suggest he would rather have Trump as president than Hillary. Insanity. I can understand the desire to want to know the face of your enemy and rally against them but in the long run we are all going to have to learn to work together. Drawing further lines to divide people works against that. That isn't to belittle their efforts as both trains of thought are important. Without protests and activism, important causes go unheard. I just can't believe how incompatible their opinions are when at the heart of it they are fighting for the same thing in different ways. I also can't believe how under promoted this documentary is. I only learned about it from listening to Harmontown.
