No Clean Slate for Karens!

On Memorial Day, in Central Park, a white woman—derisively dubbed “Karen” before she was doxed as New York City resident Amy Cooper—lost her cool after being confronted by an apparently outraged birdwatcher (a black man) named Christian Cooper (no relation). After threatening Amy Cooper’s dog (by his own admission), and telling her that he would do something “you’re not going to like,” Christian Cooper began to record the visibly distraught dogwalker, who then called the police, emphasizing the race of the man she claimed was harassing her.

Christian Cooper’s video was posted online, and, within hours, a Twitter mob had figured out the then-unknown dogwalker’s name and where she worked. As soon as the information hit the Internet, her employer, Franklin Templeton, where she was a senior portfolio manager, began receiving demands for her termination. Within hours, the company announced her firing on Twitter, stating, “We do not tolerate racism.” The Twitter mob celebrated.

The successful campaign to end Amy Cooper’s career and ruin her reputation reminds us that, when it comes to anything remotely resembling racism, polite society has zero tolerance. This is a world away from the social dynamics that existed in the 1960s, when de jure racial discrimination was commonplace. It’s easy to lose sight of this progress in the fog of insistence that white supremacy still permeates every aspect of American life.

What Amy Cooper did was idiotic. However, she is treated worse than a criminal.

Black dog owner defends 'Central Park Karen,' says black birdwatcher threatened him as well

In the recent law suit filed by white dog owner Amy Cooper against an ex-employer, a black dog owner said that black birdwatcher Christian Cooper threatened him as well: "I would of [sic] called the police on that guy too."

Amy Cooper, the white woman who went viral last year as "Central Park Karen" for calling 911 after an interaction with a black birdwatcher, has filed suit against her former employer for wrongful termination. Contained in the suit is an email from black dog owner Jerome Lockett, whose message with NBC News details a similar interaction between himself and Christian Cooper in which the birdwatch allegedly threatened him for having his dog off leash.

According to Lockett, "Well, a few days later we're in there and Christian ... comes yelling from about 10 yards away 'YOU NEED TO LEASH YOUR DOG!!! THEY CAN’T BE OFF-LEASH IN HERE.' We both take a few steps back and my friend ask him if he works for the park and he says no. So we say 'sounds good, have a good one.' And when we turn our back he starts to try and make these noises to call our dogs to him." This is similar to how Amy Cooper said their interaction started.

Christian Cooper got death threats as well.
