Quotes
De-emphasize empathy. I’ve heard several calls for increased empathy on diversity issues. While I strongly support trying to understand how and why people think the way they do, relying on affective empathy—feeling another’s pain—causes us to focus on anecdotes, favor individuals similar to us, and harbor other irrational and dangerous biases. Being emotionally unengaged helps us better reason about the facts. – Google Anti-Diversity Manifesto

Empathy is the imaginative act of stepping into the shoes of another person and viewing the world from their perspective. – Empathy Library
