Quote:
A “Karen” is basically a graduated Becky who’s extremely aware of her privilege and weaponizes it. A Becky convinces herself—and attempts to convince others—that her whiteness doesn’t matter. A Karen doesn’t even bother to fake it. She knows it’s her Big Joker and plays it whenever necessary.
Sounds good enough to me at least in the racist content. Though the concept of Karens tend to cover much more.

Is Matt Y trying to debunk HBD by continuing to engage with it, knowing that his terrible takes on almost everything else might influence others views on this, or is he actually going through some sort of political transition?

He's been engaging with Sailer quite a bit recently. Does he want to get cancelled?

The name that was being used when this meme was being born tended to be Becky, particularly describing the ones who call the cops for racist reasons. That should have stuck; unlike Karen, Becky is a diminutive nickname, and one much more associated with older generations.

Karen is a way older sounding name than Becky

Bloomberg the news organization has a policy of basically pretending that Bloomberg the person doesn't exist and I think that's hard for Yglesias to stomach

Okay, but is Sailer the only one to bring this up? Matty's been QTing him a bit on a variety of issues recently. Do you need non-Bloomberg based examples?

I appreciate your added info. I was aware of Bloomberg being weird about somethings Bloomberg related, I don't know if his net worth was one that crossed my path.
