Although this is no surprise, America is met with another virus that has been widespread for centuries. We have seen this virus take on many forms, from the murder of Emmett Till to present-day activities of black people just existing.
Karen is a virus that attacks the soul of racist white women and makes them call the police on black people that are solely minding their business.
This virus is very harmful and sometimes deadly because of the terroristic qualities that it exhibits for black people who come in contact with these women. In the past week, there have been several videos of black men minding their business, but the police were called on them by a lying ass white woman.
In this latest video, Christian Cooper was in Central Park bird watching, when he asked a white woman named Amy Cooper to please put her dog on a leash. Although it’s a park rule, Amy refused and then approached him and asked him to stop recording her.
Christain then told Amy to please don’t come close to him. Then suddenly, KAREN overtakes Amy’s body, and she begins to frantically call the police and say that an African American man is threatening her and her dog’s life. Christian never even stepped a foot toward Amy.
During this whole ordeal, Amy had her dog by the collar, who is gasping for air as she hysterically calls the cops. As the video progresses, you can hear the tone in Amy’s voice change as the operator is asking her questions.
If I had to describe her tone, I would say, it was an award-winning performance. She went from frantic to hysterical in two seconds.
Of course, the video has gone viral and fortunately enough, Amy was fired from her place of employment, and her dog was voluntarily given up. She then followed up with a sorry ass apology.
It is very disheartening to know that black people will have the cops called on them for anything. We can’t even exist in society without some random white woman or man calling the police on us. I don’t understand why it’s so hard for them to mind their business.
I’m am very TIRED of white women pulling this kind of bullsh*t. These Karen ass theatrics have got to STOP. It’s challenging for me to want to align myself with white allies when things like this affect my community constantly.
White women realize that they can weaponize the police against black people to try and shut us up. These are also the same white women that want to stand in solidarity with a black woman during a Woman’s Rights March.
Sister Girl…they don’t care about us.
It is not fair that Amy just gets let go from a job without any severe consequences to follow suit. Why do black and brown people have to live in fear regularly because of an unstable white person that refuses to leave us alone?
There needs to be a significant call of action to get some legislation written immediately. These white women need to prosecuted for their crimes. I have no more sympathy to give white folks in 2020. The only way to cure this virus is within. If white women and men can not take time out of their day to be decent human beings, then this virus will continue to spread.
Please sound off in the comments; I would love to hear input from my readers!
