Response to Celerity (Reply #68)

108. Thank you! Check this out, too...

I hope that people will fast-forward to the 55-second mark to actually LISTEN to what she's saying. Or read it. (I've made it as easy as possible for others by including a transcript that I typed myself.)

?t=62


TRANSCRIPT of AMANDA SEALES (actress and comedian)

A "Karen" is a white woman whose oblivion of their privilege causes them to act in a way that is oppressive, and often-times... insane.

(video clip)

Some might think that a "Karen" is just a loud white woman asking for the manager. You know, disrupting your customer service experience. But I'm here to tell ya, Karen goes a lot deeper.

(video clip)

Karen is a white woman who is a descendant of those who came before her who could scream and get a black man killed, who could point and get a black woman murdered.

(video clips)

For me these videos are very triggering. I think that there's a certain level of like "oh-ha-ha-ha they're annoying" when you're just watching it. But when you're in that situation it is not an annoyance, it is a disruption of your being.

You know that as a person of color--specifically a black person--you are the one who's going to be in the situation of having to prove your innocence.
