One follower suggested that Jeana, “…put on brown makeup and get some braids and be black for a week,” Adding, “see how that works for you! You now have video to show you the false accusations daily and you still say this shit!!!”
Another reminded her about the many black males who have died innocently at the hands of the police, “you maybe.., how about Tamir rice, breonna Taylor, philando castille, Daniel shaver, sPlaying with a toy gun – Not illegal, Sleeping in her own bed not illegal.. I’m happy to continue if you’d like.”
Someone else simply wrote, “Noooooooo.”
A different person cited the difference between a black person being stopped by police and a white person and called out the real estate agent’s “white privilege” mindset.
Another follower stated, “In white America everything is forgiven. But George Floyd is dead and the media is trying to portray him as a criminal. It’s okay though, right?”
“Yikes…another clown canceled.” Another commented.
One person pointed out, “I didn’t know you’re racist. I’m disappointed because you were one of my favorites until now.”
In light of the civil unrest sweeping the nation, the masses have opened their hearts and minds to understanding systemic racism as it correlates to white privilege and moral conduct.
