They refer to --> whites or american conservatives.. D,E --> out

Between B and C for me..

grounds to decide
grounds to sympathize.. -? is it not idiomatic

any other reason to eliminate choice B.

Idioms "grounds for " and "sympathize with" are correctly used in option C.

I can not look up any idioms like "ground for" in some dictionaries such as Cambridge or Longman.
