    That the type of person the term describes is white is incidental rather than racist.

    O my god

    EARLIER: WHITES TEASING bLACKS OVER EVERY "POSSIBLE" RACIST SYMBOL

    NOW: WHITES FEELING THAT KAREN IS A RACIST TERM

    (when in reality it can be applied to any woman perceived to be entitled or demanding beyond the scope of what is considered appropriate or necessary regardless of her AGE OR RACE)

    BE ready to see questions like this:

    Karen is like so racist, how do I explain to people that it's a racial slur used for white women?!

    It is lame, but that is it's intended purpose

    Yes, because it's aimed at middle aged ''white'' women. Imagine the outcry if a popular black female name like Jemima was used instead.

    Yes, since it IS possible to be racist against whites.

    No, it's a name. I have an aunt called Karen...
