#Ihaveablackhusband trends as white woman defends road rage against black man, Internet says she's 'racist'
‘I have a black husband’ is trending on Twitter after Instagram user Karlos Dillard, who is black, shared a video of a white woman, screaming “I have a black husband” when confronted about a road rage incident.
Karlos shared the video on his Instagram handle on June 22 and wrote, “Karen got caught with her road rage. I’m literally not leaving my house anymore. This Karen cut me off, break checked me and then followed me for 4 blocks. When I started recording her antics she peeled off and tried to get away with her racism. I had time today to let her know that i am not the one. I’m glad SEVERAL white and black people saw her racism and had my back.”
In the video, Karlos is seen following the woman all the way to her house to ask why she flipped him off when he was not at fault. However, on seeing Karlos, she begins to cry loudly and says “I have a black husband”. When Karlos asks her why she cut him off, the woman accuses him of “attacking” her.
As her yelling and screaming intensify, bystanders rush to stop the woman from creating a further commotion. And, when Karlos explains the situation, one of them agrees that they saw the woman flip him off. The 14-minute-long video sees Karlos finally speak to the woman with the help of others as she continues to defend herself saying she didn’t see who was in the car. However, Karlos tells his viewers that he was ill-treated for being black.
Internet users soon took to Twitter to slam the woman for being an “undercover racist” and falsely accusing Karlos of attacking her. While one wrote, “saying “I have a black husband” or anything of that nature(black friend, coworker, CHILD,etc.) does not mean you’re not racist..undercover racists are the worst. the bold ones are the ones we shouldn’t fear.. but them undercovers are a WHOLE NOTHER STORY.” While another added, "I have a black husband" is not an excuse for being racist then she gonna be like you're attacking me when bro was like 6 ft away from her LMAOO she so dumb bra”.
“#I HAVE A BLACK HUSBAND Sometimes it's best to keep it moving. People such as this woman could get a brother shot. Allow her to live in her racist world. Don't allow her misery to become your company.” read another tweet. "The fact that karen felt the need to say #IHaveABlackHusband shows that she knows she was being racist" was another's person's comment on the whole incident. “I have a black husband” doesn’t excuse your racism. Also what was that proving?? That you don’t have respect for his race?? asked another social media user.
