Karen Attiah, Global Opinion editor for the Post, posted a few racist assaults against white ladies on Twitter Sunday, including one that cautioned white women that they are fortunate black people aren’t looking for vengeance on them for many different complaints, one was deciding in favor of President Trump. Attiah deleted that tweet, yet tweeted and retweeted a few racist tweets about white ladies. Attiah was conceived in the U.S. in 1986 to parents who immigrated from Ghana.
She deleted that tweet but doubled down later tweeting
These tweets by Attiah are still up:
“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.”
Attiah attacks a black woman for not being anti-white enough.
“If you’re more worried about white women’s feelings than about how they uphold white supremacy… then…Well, this is how white supremacy works. In real-time….Maybe consider that we did that before. For generations. And it didn’t work. And yes, other POC can and often do reinforce white supremacy by siding with and coddling the dominant group rather than those who are on the receiving end of racism and abuse.”
