WaPo promotes writer who said ‘Karens’ were lucky blacks didn’t call for revenge

A Washington Post writer who tweeted that white women were “lucky” that black people were “just calling them Karens instead of calling for revenge,” has been promoted by the paper.

Karen Attiah is now a regular columnist on the “race, international affairs, culture and human rights” beat, the newspaper said Thursday.

Last summer, the Texas native blamed white woman for racial inequality in a series of tweets, while her employer remained tight-lipped on the ensuring controversy.

“The lies and tears of white women hath wrought: -the 1921 Tulsa massacre -murder of Emmett Till -exclusion of black women from feminist movements -53% of white women voting for Trump,” Attiah wrote nearly a year ago in a since-deleted tweet.

“White women are lucky that we are just calling them Karens. And not calling for revenge,” she continued.

As some users took to Twitter to condemn the 34-year-old for her statement, the journalist revealed she was receiving death threats and racist messages.

Attiah tried to explain her statement about “Karens” — privileged white women who are disparaged online after throwing a fit over a harmless incident involving a person of color.

“But here’s the real thing about ‘Karen’ memes,” Attiah wrote last June in a tweet that is still up.

“The dark side to handwringing about how ‘Karen’ hurts white women’s feelings is that it is a distraction from how everyday white women uphold white supremacy through violence, aggression, and the weaponzing of their gender.”

Attiah was the editor of Washington Post reporter Jamal Khashoggi at the time he was killed, allegedly by Saudi Arabian government operatives.
