A group of white women was accused of upholding “white supremacy” — because they expressed shock over a racist encounter involving a black Lyft driver, extraordinary scenes from a new documentary show.
The “Deconstructing Karen” film centers around the white women as they attend a bizarre dinner party in Denver, Colorado that’s hosted by Race2Dinner co-founders Regina Jackson and Saira Rao.
Jackson, who is black, and Rao, who is Indian American, launched their dinner-party venture in early 2019 as a way to inform white women how they are racist — often charging the groups $2,500 a pop.
The documentary, which aired on Canada’s CBC network Friday, filmed one of the events and promoted it as the “wildest dinner party of their lives” as the white women were captured beating themselves up over how they handle racism.
At one point during the dinner, Rao told the guests how a black Lyft driver in Charleston, South Carolina once told her to put her hands up and not make any trouble if they happened to be pulled over by police.
