Or it could be that Yang, like many others, discovered forgiveness frees individuals from the shackles of hate.Record time to weaponize that dude. Well done.
But you're right the world would be better if unrepentant racists suffered no consequences and instead get to keep high profile entertainment jobs and get their hands held and coddled by the people they shit on, and that's why Yang should be President because he has the strength to do the hard job of helping white racists keep their jobs and forgive them for being racist without them even having to apologize or anything... because Racists' Jobs Matter
"...the faculty we have for receiving forgiveness and the faculty we have for granting forgiveness are one and the same thing. If we open the one we shall open the other. If we slam the door on the one, we slam the door on the other... [Forgiveness] releases not only the person who is being forgiven but the person who is doing the forgiving. We can probably all think of examples of this. When I forgive you for treading on my toe, I release you from any burden of guilt, any sense that I might still be angry with you when we meet tomorrow, or that I will treat you differently in the future or try to get even with you. But I also release myself from having to go to bed cross, from having to toss and turn wondering how to gain my revenge. When we go up the scale from treading on toes to far more serious offenses, forgiveness can mean not only that I release you from the threat of my anger and its consequences, but also that I avoid having the rest of my life consumed with anger, bitterness and resentment." (Scholar N.T. Wright)
