When White Privilege Turns Karmic
Admin leave from job and lost her dog too.
Do black Franklin Templeton employees now have to fear her if they call her on something at work?
This was really infuriating. By Susie Madrak
This was just insane. A white woman named Amy Cooper called NYC cops after a birdwatcher named Christian Cooper asked her to leash her dog in a section of Central Park that requires her to do so, and told them in a hysterical voice "an African American man is threatening me." Now her world is (deservedly) falling apart.
The episode went viral after the birdwatcher's sister posted this on Twitter:
Oh, when Karens take a walk with their dogs off leash in the famous Bramble in NY’s Central Park, where it is clearly posted on signs that dogs MUST be leashed at all times, and someone like my brother (an avid birder) politely asks her to put her dog on the leash.
