lyonel feininger -- "der weiße mann" [i.e., the white man] (1907)
"there is no foreground or background, only a continuity of interlacing relationships" ... lyonel feininger
"white youth, black youth
better find another solution
why not phone up a'robin hood
and ask him for some wealth distribution?" ... joe strummer
"where i used to strive for movement and restlessness i now attempt to sense and express the complete total calm of objects and the surrounding air" ... lyonel feininger
"a south politician preaches to the poor white man
'you got more than the blacks, don't complain
you're better than them,
you been born with white skin,' they explain
and the negro's name
is used, it is plain
for the politician's gain
as he rises to fame
and the poor white remains
on the caboose of the train
but it ain't him to blame
he's only a pawn in their game" ... bob dylan
"each individual work serves as an expression of our most personal state of mind at that particular moment and of the inescapable, imperative need for release by means of an appropriate act of creation: in the rhythm, form, colour and mood of a picture" ... lyonel feininger
"all over people changin' their votes
along with their overcoats
if adolf hitler flew in today
they'd send a limousine anyway" ... joe strummer
"the real victim of bigotry is the white man who hides his weakness under his myth of superiority" ... james baldwin
"i'm just ... only lookin' for some fun ...
maybe a little game of hide and seek ...
or maybe tag ... we're it!" ... al janik

I see a concerning number of men using the term 'Karen' to dismiss their wives' concerns over...any number of things. Work, chores, respectful behavior, any sort of argument that arises.
'Karen' refers to a type of entitlement, rudeness, and obnoxious behavior, typically of older white women, typically towards people of color working in retail & service industries.
'Karen' does not refer to a woman feeling entitled to respect from a spouse or partner.
'Karen' is not a soft substitute for calling any woman you don't like a 'bitch'. It is especially not a substitute for calling your wife a bitch.
Learn what words mean. And stop being shitty to the people you claim to love.
