When did this become a thing? We think it was during the Obama presidency when Pajama Boy urged families to talk about health insurance over the holidays, and groups starting offering print-your-own Thanksgiving placemats with handy talking points on social justice and gun control.

This year, white folks having tough conversations with their Trump-loving relatives will be able to turn again to Show Up for Racial Justice, which has set up a text hotline if last year’s talking points aren’t working.

The hotline also speaks emoji, which is good news for Cher and Chelsea Manning.

Seriously, or you could be an adult.

Or not.

Editor’s note: Click here if you’d like a printable copy of the newly updated placemat from SURJ, featuring dinner topics like, “Whose Land Are You On?” and “How the Church Has Caused Harm.”
