Dear Fucking Carol: An open letter on race to entitled, emotionally unstable white women

To the white women who are reading this letter while sitting on their high horses,

I am in hopes that you are enjoying your ride. The breeze from the place where you’re seated must feel so nice. Hopefully when I explain why your entitlement and emotional outbursts are problematic, you’ll realize that the high horse you’ve seated yourself upon is your biggest source of embarrassment.

11 or 12-years-ago when I was in the Navy, I had the displeasure of watching a white woman have a race-fueled emotional outburst that was directed toward me.

It was *Fucking Carol.

Fucking Carol was an asshole who thought it was cute to be an asshole. She was a young white woman straight out of high school, who radiated the “daddy’s little girl doesn’t do shit she doesn’t want to do” vibe. But that’s not why I hated her.

During our deployment to the Middle East, Fucking Carol was “volun-told” by our superiors to go to Iraq, due to a Navy requirement that drafted a certain amount of people per ship to the war effort. She was upset about leaving, but I thought she was pretty lucky to have the honor of serving her country on the ground.

Before she left the ship, Fucking Carol cursed me out up and down, and to this day I have no clue why. She called me every name she could think of, including a few racist ones, like “monkey.” Perhaps she did it because she was nervous about getting killed in war, which she should have been. But she was so deep in her feelings, that she couldn’t figure out how to deal with them alone, sans the racism. That’s why I hated Fucking Carol.

I don’t think I was ever hurt by what Fucking Carol said to me. If anything, I was happy that she was being sent away. At the time, I had faith that karma was going to do it’s job while she was deployed. If there was anyone in this God given world who was clumsy enough to trip over a got damn missile, it was Fucking Carol.

I have no clue if Fucking Carol ever tripped over that missile, but the reality is that even if she did get injured while serving our country, there are many other Americans who acts just like her. They’re entitled and emotionally unstable white women who thinks that they are permitted to use racist language while berating someone they don’t care for.

Lately I’ve taken notice of news reports about white women losing their jobs as a result of their race-fueled, emotional posts on social media. The most recent person to get canned was a Denver-area doctor who tried to shade FLOTUS Michelle Obama on Facebook, but ended up sounding racist instead. According to The Denver Post,

Dr. Michelle Herren, a pediatric anesthesiologist, was responding to praise of Obama, a graduate of Princeton University and Harvard Law, that had been posted by a Facebook friend she had in common with JoAnn Nietto. The post called the first lady eloquent.

 “Doesn’t seem to be speaking too eloquently here, thank god we can’t hear her!” said Herren’s comment on the post that included a picture of Obama, her face contorted in a scream. “Harvard??? That’s a place for ‘entitled’ folks said all the liberals!”

 

Another comment by Herren followed: “Monkey face and poor ebonic English!!! There! I feel better and am still not racist!!! Just calling it like it is!”

The doctor was subsequently fired from her job after serving her bowl of shade stew, with a sprinkle of racism. But before she was fired, she attempted to save herself by saying that she didn’t know that what she was saying was harmful. Clearly her bosses were not having it.

Unfortunately, Dr. Herren is just another Fucking Carol who can’t separate her emotions from her closeted racism.  Pitiful.

No one in this world should ever feel entitled enough to use racist language because their feelings were hurt. Especially for you Fucking Carol, who is a woman of the Internet age,  where knowledge is always just a button click away. If you were really concerned about not hurting someone’s feelings, Fucking Carol, then you would do what any other normal, functioning adult of the Internet age does, and work out your feelings with a Google search.

In all fairness, before Google became a thing, you had the benefit of getting riled up, and using the “I was emotional” or “I didn’t know what I was saying was racist” excuses following your outbursts. But today, that’s not the case. The world has woken up and realized that they are sick of dealing with your bullshit, Fucking Carol. It’s exhausting.

This open letter is not an attack on you or your rights to free speech. It’s an attack on your childish behavior, your entitlement, your inability to “can” in the face of strife, and your abysmal approach at confronting racism.

Racism isn’t based on emotions, so stop using it as a vehicle to drive your closeted racism, Fucking Carol. Your language is problematic because too many people have been intimidated, humiliated, threatened, and physically hurt over your temporary little feelings. And your boss doesn’t want to deal with it because he or she doesn’t have time want to pay for extra sensitivity training just because you have no filter.

But as long as entitled women like you are alive, Fucking Carol, then you’re going to use your emotions as justification to bitch and moan in racist.

Good luck with that.

*Fucking Carol isn’t her real name, but it’s a name that suits her well.

  1. White woman here that is so sick of other white people’s shit. Sick of their privilege and racism. And I admire and respect Michelle Obama more than words can even express. Glad that doctor was fired.
