Calling 911 to report a fabricated, racially-biased emergency would be illegal in San Francisco under a new proposal called, appropriately enough, the CAREN Act.

“Racist 911 calls are unacceptable that’s why I’m introducing the CAREN Act at today’s SF Board of Supervisors meeting,” San Francisco Supervisor Shamann Walton tweeted Tuesday. “This is the CAREN we need. Caution Against Racially Exploitative Non-Emergencies.”

Wonder why they don’t call it the Jussie Smollett or Bubba Wallace bill?

This is aimed at white people who call 911 on black people.

This makes no sense. It’s already illegal everywhere to make fake or non-emergency 911 calls.

Unconstitutional. Violates equal protection under the law.

It’s racist to call women Karens or Beckys.

Smollett engaged in a hate crime because he deliberately set up a hoax.

No it isn’t. We on the right created that meme, and we’re keeping it. Don’t be ignorant.

These 911 calls are more appropriately called “SWATting” and illegal.

We created the “let me speak to the manager” lady memes?

Show your paperwork evidence of this.

Yes. It came from The Donald, 4 Chan, and every YouTube Gamer channel on the net.

It’s ours. They have no memes.

Becky comes from Sir Mix-A-Lot’s Baby Got Back song

https://www.theroot.com/the-five-types-of-becky-1798543210

Becky: (noun); a white woman who uses her privilege as a weapon, a ladder or an excuse. Ex: “A random Becky hit me up on Twitter to explain why not all white women are racist.”

What started as a controversial term for fellatio has blossomed into an all-encompassing term for a specific class of white women. Not all white women are Beckys, but all Beckys are white women...

Great, now you’ll have people second guessing their call for emergency services as they carefully consider whether the most sensitive people on Earth might possibly find a way to take their call in an offensive way.

Because THAT won’t cost some lives! /s

Becky is rarely used. Karen is most certainly and has always been a Hillary voter from day one. They don’t get this one. Because they can’t. They Karen’s are all Democrats.

Is it racist to refer to blacks as LeRoy or Shaneeka?

Dunno....Wait until John Roberts wraps his head around the topic. Maybe wait until someone taps John Roberts on the knoggin and tells him what-is-what.
