B.E.Ts "Karen" is the New Sexist Slur


Racism is awful. So is REVERSE RACISM, Sexism or MISOGYNY. The Black Entertainment Network - B.E.T. - is about to release later this year the most Reverse Racist MISOGYNISTIC piece of SLANDER that I've ever seen - "Karen."


No.


All White Women DO NOT act this way.


While my NAME may not be "Karen" I can guarantee that this will affect me as a White Woman.


B.E.T. may not have started the "Karen phenomenon" but they are about to claim ownership of it & keep it going for YEARS with the release of this Movie.


This is why I REFUSE to participate in any discussion when there is such Public Outcry about Racial Slurs.


Apparently it is only applicable to people using the "N-Word" - but it's perfectly OK for people of Color to openly use the "B-Word" AND create NEW SEXIST SLURS SUCH AS "KAREN."


On the subject of the "N-Word," why do Black Rappers refer to THEMSLEVES this way?


If you want RESPECT, you should RESPECT YOURSELVES.


The new derogatory Sexist Slur against women that arose in 2020 referring to White Women as "Karen" illustrates exactly WHY we need some version of the Fairness Doctrine implemented in the US.


I've been talking about the Fairness Doctrine since 2019 & stunningly enough, I've had it thrown in my face & WEAPONIZED online on Social Media.


The Fairness Doctrine , introduced & implemented in the Federal Communications Commission during the presidency of Democratic President Harry S. Truman, was later repealed - hence the viciousness we see today on TV.


In many ways, Social Media has leveled the playing field in the Marketplace of Ideas, but people posting online have not studied Libel Law.


There is nothing Civilized about the radical viciousness on Social Media.


People feel emboldened to say whatever they want because they "know their First Amendment Right to Free Speech."


What they FAIL TO UNDERSTAND is that Rights come with TREMENDOUS RESPONSIBILITIES.


With respect to eradicating Racism, people need to make sure that they are not becoming the thing they despise: REVERSE RACIST AGAINST WHITE PEOPLE.


It's easy.


Here's how:


Learn to treat PEOPLE as INDIVIDUALS.


That's it.


I would also suggest that until Racism can be eradicated, that people use the term PREJUDICE.


ANYONE can be PREJUDICE.


Do not "PREJUDGE" PEOPLE BY WHAT'S ON THE OUTSIDE.


Women need the protection of the Equal Rights Amendment & also a Hate Speech Bill.


"People of Color" have the protection of a Hate Crime Bill - yet WOMEN are openly attacked on a daily basis by HATE SPEECH.
