(AmericanPoliticalDaily.com)- On Sunday, the Washington Post proved yet again that racism is fine as long as it’s directed towards white people. Karen Attiah, the Global Opinions Editor for the Washington Post published a tweet that suggested “white women are lucky that we are just calling them ‘Karen’s’. And not calling for revenge.”
The tweet was widely seen as a threat, suggesting that white women were responsible for several evils in the world.
Attiah, who has since deleted the tweet, said that the “lies & tears of White women hath wrought: – The 1921 Tulsa Massacre – Murder of Emmet Till – Exclusion of Black women from feminist movements – 53% of white women voting for Trump.”
By saying that white women were lucky black women weren’t calling for revenge, she implied heavily that black women may have some kind of moral reasoning to murder white women. Isn’t that what revenge means – to do to other people what you believe they have done to you? What would “revenge” for the “murder of Emmet Till” be, other than murder?
That’s probably why Attiah deleted the tweet…but not before people screenshotted it and posted it online so nobody would forget.

In response to another user, Attiah doubled down and said, “Be happy we are calling for equality. And not actual revenge.”
Calling for equality? Really? The latest is that BLM actually wants equity, which discriminates against people based on race and unfairly gives opportunities to African Americans – or any other “oppressed” minority – instead of making judgments based on merit.
Attiah comes from the line of thought that white women subconsciously promote white supremacy. Seriously. Not only that, actually, but she claims white women do that..through violence. Check out this tweet.
“The dark side to handwrigging about how Karen” hurts white women’s feelings is that it is a distraction from how everyday white women uphold white supremacy through violence, aggression, and the weaponizing of their gender.”
But here’s the real thing about “Karen” memes.
The dark side to handwringing about how Karen” hurts white women’s feelings is that it is a distraction from how everyday white women uphold white supremacy through violence, aggression, and the weaponzing of their gender.

No evidence to back up that claim, of course, but what did you expect?
