3. I get that. You get it. But frankly its all a bit too undergrad sociology class

to get working class whites to buy into.

You tell him blacks get beat up.by cops he is gonna show you where the sheriff knocked his tooth out."But it is statistically more likely to happen to a black guy," is probably something he will not find compelling.
