The Dolores Park playground is closed because of COVID-19 restrictions, but a wildly racist Karen decided to blame a Rec and Parks outreach worker over the closure, in a video that’s quickly going viral on Facebook. The unidentified woman was upset to find the Dolores Park playground closed, and took it out on a Rec and Parks worker of color by yelling “You little nigres. Go back to wherever you came from.”

Yesterday, while doing outreach for LoveDolores, I was approached by this unknown Karen at Dolores Park. Upset about…

Video of the Sunday incident can be seen above, from an outreach coordinator with the LoveDolores project — a worker who had nothing to do with the city-mandated closure of the playground. In the post, the worker of Colombian heritage says “Yesterday, while doing outreach for LoveDolores, I was approached by this unknown Karen at Dolores Park. Upset about COVID regulations, she took it upon herself to cut & remove the blockade closing the Children’s Playground (mandated by City’s health orders) and verbally harass me.”

The angry woman’s Branch Covidian tirade crosses back and forth between COVID-19 denialism and brutal racism. “This is an unconstitutional, unlawful taking of public property,” she says of the playground closure, while cutting down the ribbon-barriers with scissors and calling the worker “you dumb sheep.”

“Go to the hospital, tell them to put you on a ventilator,” she yells. “They’ll kill you with a ventilator, like they’re doing to thousands of others.

“We paid for this park. You don’t get to take our property. We paid for it, you little nigres. Go back to wherever you came from. Stop trying to steal the property we paid for. Go back to wherever you came from. You don’t get to take it.”

Mission Local reached out to the outreach worker, identified as Andres Patino. “Since I was working at the time, I had to [refrain] myself and was unable to stand up to her comments,” Patino tells Mission Local. “But [I] have decided I really want to find a way to hold her accountable for her actions and to hopefully avoid someone else being on the receiving end of this hateful person in the park again or somewhere else in the City.”

The woman did eventually ease up when a uniformed park ranger showed up on the scene. She was escorted from the park, but has not been identified.

    Hey Andres, if you are reading this, I just wanted to say I’m sorry you had to experience this. Thanks for sharing the video.

    She said Migres, not Nigres. Still racially charged and not right. It is a slang for emigres (emigrants).

      I guess every one here has never insulted anyone in their lifetime. How does it feel to be perfect?

        Exactly. I bet he’s been called much worse. I’m not buying his virtue signalling.

      Unlike, say, cumbia de Colombia, where they sing about, “los negritos,” (little darkies)?

    Why didn’t you JUST call the police and let them handle it? You got your 15 mins of fame!

      Yeah, I guess it’s Andres’ fault that this Karen decided to go on a racist, xenophobic rant and cut down a tape barricade with scissors she apparently just happened to have.

      It’s amazing that there are so many people with such low IQs. This idiot can’t walk and chew gum at the same time (as the old saying goes.
