"Dominant groups do not give up their power easily." That's according to law professor and OG Tiger Mom Amy Chua. I've thought about this statement quite a bit, and I've come to reject this framing of our current state of the world. It's catchy but also panicky and outraged, and makes us feel hopeless and doomed.
I believe there's another way. While dominant groups may not give up power easily, there IS a way to resolve in vs. out-group conflicts peacefully and even (dare I say) "normally." And who couldn't use a strong dose of normal these days?
As always, thank you for listening!

“In the polarized era, the outcome isn't really about the candidates. What matters is what percentage of the electorate is Democratic and Democratic leaners, and how they get activated.” - Rachel Bitecofer
