    Idk wtf to do, we haven't lived in the same town for 5 years but always kept in touch. This guy used to be liberal and always inviting of new cultures.

    But his stupid dad brainwashed him and now he thinks climate change is a hoax, Weed is a gateway d***, Trump is a genius, riots in USA are because of the ''libtards'' and there's no racism there and he ''looks over his shoulder around black and muslim people''.

    I always try to bring the facts when he says stupid s*** like ''Trump is the reason black unemployement is so low''. And I think I got through him but next time I talk to him he always brings up the same talking points even though I destroyed them all with facts before.

    like he doesn't even fact check Trump, he believes whatever he says and thinks all the negative trump news are lies and propaganda. im convinced that he stopped watching legit news because he always sends me these youtube videos of ed conservatives talking even when I just ignore it.

    I've stopped responding to him but this guy was more of a brother to me than my real brother growing up. Is there any way I can stop this cancer from destroying him completely? It's sad because we're both minorities in our country and experience discrimination for the way we talk. He was always open and understood the struggle of minorities and now he just disregards it all as ''leftist propaganda''.

    TLDR: Open best bro became brainwashed by conservative dad, now he's racist and close minded even though he himself is a minority. Can he be saved and if so how?

    Don't even bother with him anymore. No need to waste energy on useless garbage.

    One thing i've been saying a lot is there is not much you can do with people who are being purposely obtuse. Once they get to that point where they ignore common sense and stand on their hill regardless for the sake of not wanting to be wrong there isnt much discussion to be had.

    Tell him exactly how you feel. Then say it's no longer worth argueing and ditch him as a friend. Make it clear his worship of Trump ended your friendship

    Unfortunately this happened to a lot of my friends as well. Living in the south and in a heavily conservative city once you hit middle school the kids who come from racist families usually have their parents figuratively and literally beating racist troupes into them. There is this one girl and her sister that come to mind for me specificalyl I was friends with when i started hs. One was legit all over me and her sister same age as us was always telling me not entertain it because their dad would kill them if he knew.

    Didn't hear much from either of them after our freshman year until a few years ago i got a glimpse of the sister who used to be all over me's facebook and it was nothing but abunch of bs propaganda about the wrongs of race mixing and other s***. Found out through the friend i met them through that their dad legit was beating the hell out of them for associating with black people and literally forced that s*** down theit throats until they complied. I dont see it as an excuse to not know bettter when we are all heading towards 30 now but still sad nonetheless. The other sister seems to be struggling with d*** abuse bad which honestly isn't surprsing if there is any truth to how bad the abuse was.

    yeah I definitely should, last time we spoke I told him I don't wanna argue about it anymore but I hope he realizes that the youtube videos he watches are conservative propaganda and that he needs to fact check what they and Trump say but I don't think I got through to him
