Empathy and egotism 1

Empathy is the capacity to recognize/share feelings with another.

But could/should you empathise with someone who says:

“I just saw this deformed man on the street. He made me feel horrible. Those people should just stay at home!”

Perhaps our capacity to empathise with another human being depends on whether we share a similar level of egotism?
