A Washington Post editor sparked controversy on social media when she said white women are lucky that Black people are "just calling them Karens" and not taking revenge on them.

Karen Attiah, who is Black, tweeted on Sunday that the "lies and tears of white women" caused the murders of Black people in America for decades.

In her tweet, she cited civil rights violations by Karens throughout history, including Emmett Till's murder after a white woman accused the boy of flirting with her.

Attiah then tweeted that white women were "lucky" that "we are just calling them Karens and not calling for revenge."

After surviving the backlash from white men and women who called for her termination, Attiah dug in her heels and tweeted: "Be happy we are calling for equality. And not actual revenge."

Conservative writer Matt Walsh tweeted: "Oh so insulting generalizations based on race and gender are okay now? Or are they only okay for you? Just trying to understand the rules."

Another user tweeted: "You threaten white women with violence. WashPo what is your response? The world is watching and waiting."

The hashtag #fireKarenAttiah began trending on Twitter on Monday.

Karen is a pejorative term to describe entitled white women who snitch on Black people to the police, retail managers, or company HR departments.

Minnesota state police arrested a CNN reporter and his cameraman as they covered the continuing protests over the death of George Floyd in south Minneapolis.

The police cited CNN contributor Omar Jimenez with a misdemeanor for refusing to stop his coverage of the civil unrest on Thursday.

Police allowed Jimenez and his cameraman to finish his report before placing the camera on the ground and arresting the journalists.

Fellow journalists and CNN colleagues vented their outrage on Twitter, saying the arrests violated the reporter's freedom of speech rights.

"Arresting journalists is regime behavior. Please know that, Minnesota. #GeorgeFloyd," tweeted MSBNC corespondent Joy Reid.

Jimenez, a graduate of attended Northwestern University, is a Hispanic who grew up in Kennesaw, Georgia. He received his journalism degree in 2015.

A wise person once said, "Wherever you go, there you are." Your problems will follow you wherever you go - unless you are willing to make a change.

For busty traffic reporter Demetria Obilor, switching jobs didn't solve her problems. Obilor, 26, was a traffic reporter for KLAS-TV in Las Vegas, when one viewer complained on Facebook about her distracting attire.

Obilor favors curve-fitting club dresses, the type that leaves nothing to the imagination. Male viewers thought Obilor's attire was appropriate for work. But her tiny dresses caused a commotion with female viewers.

Obilor has been a traffic reporter for two weeks at WFAA Channel 8 News in Dallas, Texas. She still wears impossibly short dresses with plunging necklines. And female viewers are still commenting on her distracting attire.

"She's a 16/18 woman in a size 6 dress and looks ridiculous," said one female viewer in a post on Facebook.com. The viewer threatened to stop watching WFAA if station management doesn't enforce the dress code.

Obilor shared a screenshot of the post on social media. "I'm not a 16/18, but even if I was, for you to try to call out my size like that to hurt me or discriminate against me, I'm not for that," she told NBC News.

Obilor, who is biracial, was attacked at her previous job for wearing her hair natural.

She shared a screenshot of an email from a woman who said her natural hair must be hard to clean and "smell bad."

"Black people on TV; there’s nothing wrong with that," Obilor said. "Naturally, curly hair — I don't care if a black woman wants to wear her hair straight or in braids, you don't get to say what's professional and what's not professional based on your white standard of beauty."

She added: "When you get older and you're in the news people warn you that, 'Hey, you're going to be under a harsh lens. People are going to critique you, people are going to say mean things about you.'"

Working moms everywhere can relate to a NBC news correspondent who vent viral on social media after her son interrupted her live report on Syria.

NBC News correspondent Courtney Kube was live on the air reporting on the conflict in Syria on Wednesday when her son wandered over and demanded her attention.

Kube, who covers national security and the Pentagon, was discussing Turkey's incursion into Syria from the NBC News studios in Washington, D.C. when her 4-year-old son interrupted her.

"Excuse me... my Kids are here. Live television," Kube laughed while simultaneously pushing her son away.

Kube later explained that her kids were dropped off in the studio from preschool and, "Breaking news in Syria didn't line up with preschool drop-off, so he and his twin brother were with me."

Hopefully Kube's boss has a good sense of humor.
