2. it's confirmation their worldview is working

their worldview is a social hierarchy with whites over blacks, men over women, republicans over democrats, etc.

people on the wrong end of the hierarchy are *expected* to whine and complain and not like it.

so our complaints and wailing are not convincing anyone stuck in that worldview.

until we convince bigots that *they* are being screwed, we won't convince them. if blacks or women or democrats are being treated unfairly, they just figure that means they whites and men and republicans are reaping the benefits, and they just love that idea.
