They are all good points, and I'm glad that your friend was able to put aside their own reactions for long enough to listen and understand.

I was also happy, it's just not how such discussions normally go. I think there may be an illustrative lesson there somewhere, though, about the value of keeping the subject under discussion entirely separate from any judgement of the attitude of the person you're discussing it with. As this individual is also someone I love and respect, I didn't at any point touch on any kind of how can you think that outrage, which sometimes I might, and shouldn't.

Obviously there are many more reasons why the cartoon was horrible, actually, but I'm quite pleased with myself for hitting some solid highlights without notes or preparation.

Absolutely agree on the keeping the discussion separate from judging the other person(s) in the discussion.
