EtcetEraThreadRacist Karen hits a woman at a store, then starts acting like a victim by weaponizing racism by fake crying & throwing a tantrum. (See Staff Post)
Red Text There is nothing noble or helpful about hijacking a conversation regarding racist acts of violence by attributing the perpetrator's actions to mental illness. No one on Earth, not even psychiatric professionals, is capable of diagnosing a mental disorder from a single outburst caught on film. The constant attempts to do so do nothing but stigmatize the mentally ill, and ultimately, all this serves to do is to move sympathy away from the victim of racism to the perpetrator of it and is, in itself, a form a white supremacy. The simplest answer for Elphick's behavior, and other Karens who rage about minor inconveniences and direct their rage towards minorities and their allies, is that she as a white woman has been conditioned by society to behave in this way in order to achieve her goals. Supremacist socialization is not a mental health disorder. We will be going through all reports and posts; anyone who has already or continues to push this narrative without evidence of Elphick's medical history will be banned.
