Karens are not merely “annoying customers of ‘any race’ demanding to speak to managers.” A “Karen” is a hateful, racist, white woman who is aware her white privilege. And while she won’t acknowledge it publicly, she will use it every opportunity she gets. Her targets are usually Black or Hispanic people. Although no non-white is safe from her violence. These are white women lying about assaults and more, calling the police on Black people and non-Black POC, with the hope that they will at least get arrested but knowing far worse can happen.
There is no such thing as a “Black Karen.” White people started to apply that term to everyone so that it will soften their racism. By changing the definition and application of the label, they are managing to do just that. Don’t let them.
The next time someone applies “Karen” to anyone other than a white woman, swiftly correct them. In this same way, they insist “anyone can be racist.” While bigotry and prejudice do not require a power structure, racism absolutely requires power.
I read an article yesterday which states that POTS is a rare side effect of COVID-19 mRNA vaccines. Less than 5 in one million people will be effected. Compared to the unvaccinated. Who are 5X more likely to suffer from POTS than the vaccinated. That’s approximately 25 people (unvaccinated) in one million vs 5 people (vaccinated) in one million. A statistically insignificant amount. 😩
If 5 in one million is rare. 25 in one million is rare as well. 5X more sounds like a lot. But 5X more than what?😩 Is the risk of injury worth the alleged benefits? I believe that’s a personal decision. It’s not for me to speak on. But I wish professionals weren’t for sale. I certainly saw a study where wearing masks “proved” to be 5% more effective than not wearing them. And the conclusion was that mask wearing should be advised. 😩
After a person recovers from COVID, there should be no spontaneous reoccurrence of symptoms unless they are reinfected. Incidents of people experiencing long COVID, months after having an asymptomatic infection or recovery, should be studied. There may be something amiss.
It’s startling to think in 2022 that killing people rather than feeding and providing housing for them is the better option. But that’s what is happening in Canada. Society has always loathed poor people. But wait until some people find out that they’re actually poor. One paycheck away from homelessness. How will they feel about this option? Or that this is capitalism.
“Capitalism’s answer to …“What about those who can’t work?” has always been “They should die quickly.” But until now it’s always been spoken wordlessly in the policies enacted and the societal structures put in place.” – Caitlin Johnson
I will never forget a co-worker telling me that poor people shouldn’t have babies. I had to remind him that he wouldn’t be here if his parents didn’t have kids. This is really appalling for so-called Christian societies. It’s not very Christ-like.
