Video catches a white woman falsely reporting ‘an African-American man threatening my life’

2 min read

It’s amazing how some people use their privilege for evil acts against others. It’s a matter of time before this woman if fired from her job. And she should be arrested for making a false claim!

This woman was asked by a Black man to put a leash on her dog, which is the park regulation. Rather than comply, the woman decided to threaten him with a 911 call. This is a perfect example of why Karen-ing isn’t a joke. Underneath this commitment to recklessly calling the police is an indifference to the often deadly consequences of such a call for Black folk. In this case, it seems worse.

This woman appears to be deliberately punishing the man for his reasonable request by summoning the police. Fortunately, this brother made it out ok, as he walked away after finally leashes her dog. Too often, though, this isn’t the case. When white women weaponize their fragility by calling the cops, Black people can die.
