I think this is key. I believe I have bridged the empathy gap somewhat by reading and watching TV and film that takes me out of my reality and into the POV of BIPOC. But, why? Why am I drawn to this and crave understanding experiences of others that I couldn't understand myself? And, why are some people not drawn to this? I'd really love to know the answer to that question.
