Default Re: Can you be friends with....

I like to think that I could be friends with anyone who is willing to share a conversation and hear my opinions without getting enraged or defensive and I would try to do the same for them.
What you said reminded me of a video I saw about an old black man who has a collection of white supremacist trinkets because he goes and sits down with the supremacists and engauges them in a calm conversation and listens to their opinions about why they feel and think the way that they do.
Most of the ones he has ever met and spoken with have become his friends and turned away from their racist life styles and when they are ready to throw away all of their racist memorabilia he asks for it so, that he can prove to other people that his method works.
If people would just listen to each other more instead of getting offended so quickly then, maybe more people that are on the wrong track might start to rethink their live's decisions.
