Full frontal interviews Republicans over "Black Lives Matter" movement in US


Obviously I don't pretend to know about the terrible racial problems in the US, but I did find the video a little bit encouraging at the end. When they're in front of a black interviewer they see them differently that through the eyes of Republican rhetoric and talking points ("All lives matter"). People are people and some of them expressed a serious desire to understand what black people go through regularly.

In that sense I found it similar to the issues around the LGBT. When your in front of a person you may not have wanted equality for them in the past, but when you see them as simply people like you the attitude changes.
