White privilege isn’t about how hard White people work or how hard their lives have been. It’s about what they’ve been able to get away with for centuries.
But times are changing.
Gone are the days when White people can publicly abuse Black people.
Ken and Karen found that out the hard way.
Here’s how it went down. In the stands at a Steelers v. Lions NFL game in Pittsburg, Karen decided to test the level of her privilege, knowing that Ken was there to back her.
So, she thought!
In a now-viral video, Karen is seen yelling at a Black man.
“No! You shut up and get the f*ck out,” she yells while placing her hands on the man.
“Yo, don’t touch me,” the Black victim says, while pulling his arm away.
You can tell Ken really didn’t want to get involved as he sat quietly seated while Karen was seen overreacting as if it was her birthday. Ken was probably praying that the situation would deescalate.
However, Karen slaps the man boldly, and all hell breaks loose.
That’s when the man briefly zones out and lunges at Karen. In fear, she backs away. That’s when Ken had to get involved.
Let’s just say, Ken found-the-f*ck-out and so did Karen.
Like Red gets knocked-out by Deboo in the movie Friday, so became the fate of Ken. In one blow, he was reseated.
Had this incident happened during America’s Jim Crow days, this Black man would have been instantly dragged out of the stadium and lynched.
Nevertheless, the Black man was told to leave his seat by a few other White men who stood up and exercised their level of privilege subconsciously.
After all, why was the Black man told to leave?
Karen started the fight. Right?!
We all saw the same video.
