50. I disagree, taking my direction from Karen Attiah, a woman of color and editor at WaPo:

"Calling the Karen meme the new n-word or asserting that it is a sexist slur only trivializes actual violence and discrimination that destroy lives and communities"


--Karen Attiah, global opinions editor for The Washington Post

After racial violence in the U.S., writer Karen Attiah re-examines the 'Karen' meme

The ‘Karen’ memes and jokes aren’t sexist or racist. Let a Karen explain.

As a millennial black Karen, and a child of immigrants, I find the brouhaha hilarious and twisted. “Karen” is not and will never be an oppressive slur. Anyone who disagrees can take it up with my manag … — I mean, with history...

And to invent oppression when none is happening to you? Well, as a Karen, I just have to say — that is peak Karen behavior.
