Karen strikes again!
A white couple in San Francisco questioned a man of color Friday for stenciling “Black Lives Matter” – on his own property.
Twitter user @Jaimetoons posted a video of a self-righteous couple accosting him for stenciling in chalk Black Lives Matter on the side of his own building.
“A white couple call the police on me, a person of color, for stencilling a #BLM chalk message on my own front retaining wall,” @Jaimetoons tweeted. “‘Karen’ lies and says she knows that I don’t live in my own house, because she knows the person who lives here. #blacklivesmatter”
In the video, a woman who later identifies herself as Lisa, approaches Jaime as her husband, Robert, videotapes the two from the street.
Lisa, smiling strangely asks: “Is this your property? Hi – I’m asking you if this is your property.”
“Why are you asking?” Jaime asks, to which Robert says, “Because it’s private property!”
Lisa, in a patronizing voice then adds, “Because it’s private property so… Are defacing private property? You’re free to express your opinion but … just not on people’s properties.”
Lisa then goes on to say “Absolutely. Respectfully. We’re just saying your signs and everything – that’s good. THIS is not the way to do it. It’s private property.”
Jaime then says, “If I did live here and it was my property this would be absolutely fine?” to which Lisa shoots back, “If it WAS your property.”
Jaime says, “And you don’t know if I live here or if this is my property…”
Lisa, grinning, says, “We actually DO know. That’s why we’re asking.”
Jaime shoots back, “Because you live here, right…?” prompting Lisa to respond, “No because we know the person who does, OK? What I’m asking you is why are you doing this?”
Jaime then says, “And I’m not answering you.” He then suggests, “you can call the cops if you believe I’m committing a crime.”
Which the couple does.
