It’s the 911 call that has been heard around the world. By now, I know many of my readers have watched the video between dog
choker walker, Amy Cooper and bird watcher, Christian Cooper, however the video is posted below.
When I told you women like Karen are dangerous this is what I meant. https://t.co/S9GnAXkLVi

I knew a standard apology would be coming because it is the modus operandi of many White people that say something racist and then realize their world is about to fall apart.
Amy Cooper told CNN, that since the video was posted, her “entire life is being destroyed right now.” With everything going on in this nation when it comes to Black people and police relations, including the outrageous murder of George Floyd, Amy Cooper had NO problem destroying Mr. Cooper’s life should the police have shown up and harmed him.
So please do not be fooled by Amy Cooper’s apology. Amy Cooper is not sorry. Amy Cooper is sorry she got caught.
Amy Cooper’s “apology” is in the photo below.
This is what I read when I read her apology:
I am sincerely and humbly apologizing only because I got caught being racist. If I was remotely sincere I would not be calling him “that man” but I really don’t care, which is why, although this is now a global story, I never even took the time to learn his name. I don’t believe what I did was unacceptable. What IS unacceptable is that a Black man had the audacity to tell ME to follow the rules. Of course, I am concerned about people seeing me in a lower light because I have worked daily to craft the image of someone that is a decent human being and my mask fell off. It is not that I really care what I did, I just hate that the world sees me for who I truly am. When I think about the police, I am WELL aware that the police are there to protect and serve me- a White woman. Of course I am going to lie and say I realized this today because I want you to feel sorry for me like I was ignorant to how the police treat Black people in America. I am not ignorant to what is happening in America. It is for that VERY reason I made sure to say, “An African-American man is threatening me,” and of course my dog because nothing says send 10 police officers to my rescue, like a Black man threatening a fragile White woman and her dog. I knew EXACTLY what I was doing however, now I want the world to feel sorry for me. And since I am always allowed to be the victim, I am willing to play the part I have trained for all my life. If you can, please find it in your heart to forgive me and understand it is not that man who is the victim, it is I- I am the real victim in all of this.
Sorry Not Sorry!
