Kindly 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 by including a transcript for you.)

TRANSCRIPT of AMANDA SEALES (actress and comedian)

A "Karen" is a white woman whose oblivion of their privelege 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.

She's a total Karen.

Okay, I'm gonna need for people who are calling this a slur, and "racial slur" to stop! Okay? When you are a "Karen," that means you've opted-in -- and if it don't apply, let it fly!

But the fact is, if someone is labeling you "Karen," that means you've done something to warrant that label. You're not just sitting there minding your own business. And generally it means that you've stepped into something--into somebody else's business--that you have no business stepping into.

And you've made a spectacle of yourself based on some degree of privilege that you believe that you have. If that applies to you, KAREN, then that applies to you! If it doesn't apply to you, then just let it fly! Why people want to...when people are like "oh, it's the new n-word"... ARE YOU SERIOUS, KAREN?! That is a Karen! Okay?

Awesome!



C'MON! GET IN! We're taking back America!






Joe/Kamala or Biden/Harris 2020!!
They're stronger together & can't be bought!!
Jump on the Biden Bandwagon & abandon the revolution!!

Holly Gottawhine is letting her bitterness, resentment and bias shine through... when she resorts to writing in that manner. Her style and tone would be more appropriate for her own far-left blog, or as a random OP on some Internet political discussion forum. It really serves no good purpose for Politico (or anyone) to continue this charade of pretending that she's some kind of serious journalist or reporter.

Meh. She's a Karen. It definitely applies! She has opted-in.

Here... watch this (Fast-Forward to the 1-min mark)

A catchall term is imprecise and annoying and lazy.

If this doesn't make sense, then nothing will. Listen to what she says.

Some of them are likely "as good as" dead... at least as far as their careers go (I hope).

I'll never forgive Sarandon for her treachery and lies. Just like Nina Turner, she knew better... she was disappointed and wanted revenge. She gave a lot of people "cover" for their choice to not support Hillary, or to vote for Stein, or to write in the name of someone who could never win. Another high-profile (supposedly) progressive individual even gave 'cover' to her twitter followers by proclaiming that it doesn't matter WHO you vote for, as long as you vote. When the fact of the matter is this: IT ACTUALLY DOES MATTER WHO YOU VOTE FOR!

And now, even today, we have other so-called progressives at Politico slinging shit at Biden and creating division among Democrats. And the negativity of Michael Moore is demoralizing, not inspiring. It looks like he's trying to cause and guarantee his self-fulfilling prophecy so that he can have the pleasure of proclaiming "told you so".

I approve. There are other risks that a virtual convention also minimizes too...

I approve. There are other risks that a virtual convention also minimizes too... and everything will be orderly and RESPECTFUL.

Heavy sigh.

Bernie calls himself a Socialist but he's at best a milquetoast Social Democrat.


And it's the caucusing that matters when it comes to determining majorities, etc.
So, someone's voting record doesn't matter at all? I do not believe that how one "caucuses" should be a free pass for being able to smear and denigrate the Democratic party with public proclamations that Democrats are "ideologically bankrupt" (that's not true); or that Democrats are "feeble" (that's not true); or that the Democratic party is "corrupt" (that's not true); or that the Democratic party is "an absolute failure" (that's not true); or that the Democratic party is "the party of the elite" (also not true); or that "there's no difference between Democrats and Republicans (another false statement); or that the Democrats are "do-nothings" (completely false); or that the Democratic party "doesn't care about climate change (blatantly false); or that the Democrats "focus too much on diversity" (how absurd!) or that Democrats who "are very big into diversity" aren't "particularly sympathetic" to the working class (heavy-sigh!).

Here's the thing... that type of anti-Democratic-party rhetoric serves NO good purpose. In fact, it hurts the party. The lies and smears and attacks only serve to create an atmosphere of negativity: Negativity generates apathy. Apathy discourages voter turnout. Low voter turnout gives Republicans a chance to steal the elections.
