Washington Post Opinion Editor: White Women ‘Lucky’ We’re Not Calling for Revenge

Washington Post Global Opinions editor Karen Attiah ignited controversy Sunday after tweeting that white women were to blame for atrocities going back 100 years and the current rioting since 53% voted for President Trump.

Attiah tweeted:

The lies & tears of White women hath wrought:

-The 1921 Tulsa massacre

-Murder of Emmet Till

-Exclusion of Black women from feminist movements

-53% of white women voting for Trump.

White women are lucky that we are just calling them “Karen’s”.

And not calling for revenge.

The Washington Examiner’s Siraj Hashmi took a screenshot of the since-deleted tweet.

Per the Daily Wire:

She added later: “This is not patience and strength. It’s the result of knowing the price of resistance, and that much blood would be spilled. We must get away from the idea that enduring abuse is admirable.”

Four minutes after that, she tweeted, “I’m just saying. Be happy we are calling for equality. And not actual revenge.”

Prior to those three tweets, Attiah explained: “But here’s the real thing about ‘Karen’ memes. 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 weaponizing of their gender.”
