Emotional Correctness

I never watch Fox News and I have never seen Sally Kohn before this video came across my desk.

I cannot imagine getting the amount of hate mail that she gets.

But her point that political persuasion does not begin with facts or data, but respect, empathy and compassion for the other person no matter what political or cultural differences you may have, is a message worth listening to and reflecting upon.

“Our challenge is to have the compassion for others we want them to have for us. That is emotional correctness…that is how we start the conversations that really make the change.”

Here is a link to the video:
