Astonishingly Racist Karen Goes Off On Dolores Park Worker in Covidiot Rant
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.
