I might be misreading that sentence. I don’t care about racists or saving them. I only care about saving their future victims, and to me that means that their past actions and behaviors should face justice, in any of its forms — threat-reduction, punitive, retributive, deterrent, even restorative.

If this sentiment of “hope for racists” comes from some Christian sense of forgiveness, it is unnecessary: even if they profess faith, racists who commit racist actions know there is no punishment in the afterlife, either because they fundamentally don’t believe in any god/religion, or the god/religion they do believe in is racist.

I stop to miau to cats.
