FSU ‘History of Karen’ Class Examines ‘Weaponizing’ of White Womanhood


In the latest example of ultra-progressive academia idiocracy, a new class at Florida State University will examine the “weaponizing” of white womanhood. 

According to a flyer for the summer section, the discussion will cover the “History of Karen.” 

If you aren’t familiar, “Karen” is a wildly popular meme used to describe a specific type of middle-class white woman who exhibits “privileged” behaviors. 

For example, a “Karen” is the kind of woman who demands to “speak to the manager” or refuses to wear a mask in the grocery store. 

But, a newly predominant feature of the “Karen” stereotype is that they weaponize their “privilege” against people of color.

The poster also includes a cartoon portraying an emoji-character with a stereotypical  “Karen” hairstyle alongside an image of women draped in Klan hoods.

“The activation of white terror is a white woman’s soft power,” the poster reads. “We like to masculinize white supremacy, to presume it reeks of testosterone, when in fact, it is just as likely to be spritzed by perfume.” 

The course advertises a selection of books including Hood Feminism, Too Fat, Too Slutty, Too Loud: The Rise and Reign of the Unruly Woman and Eloquent Rage: A Black Feminist Discovers Her Superpower, according to BizPacReview.
