How do we know they haven’t? The news media and social media value exemplification and extremes, not the average. If a white person does this, wouldn’t it just be eliciting the White Savior theme? Who would call the news media about this story?

I agree that white women could contribute to redefining the cultural conditioning, but it’s a matter of everyone removing labels (including “Karen”) that negate our uniqueness. We must work together to create new norms that promote the integrity and dignity of each human being.

The light in me honors the light in you.
