The choice for Who’s Cappin this morning was an easy one for Lore’l.
A disturbing clip of a white woman (later revealed as Amy Cooper) in New York City calling the cops on a Black man for recording her in Central Park went viral on Memorial Day. Reportedly he asked her to leash her dog, per city protocols—and her heinous behavior has backfired epically.
Twitter quickly found the identity of the culprit, Amy Cooper (no relation to Melody Cooper), and her name has been trending ever since. Ironically, one of the people who initially identified her was her old dog walker. Oh yeah, they took back the dog. Lore’l had to call this woman out for her clearly racist actions, but we all know this won’t be the last time a video like this goes viral.

The way Amy Cooper intentionally kicks up her voice during the call to fabricate a sense of danger is terrifying. Imagine this happening in a time when he couldn't easily film. Imagine only that heightened racist voice playing on the news and white viewers fill in the blanks.— Charlotte Clymer 🏳️🌈 (@cmclymer) May 26, 2020

Amy Cooper said "African American" because racist white women know how to hide behind the appropriate terminology as they weaponize the state when their privilege is challenged.— Sofia Quintero (@sofiaquintero) May 25, 2020

Amy Cooper is Head of Franklin Templeton (@FTI_US) Insurance Investment Solutions.— Franklin Leonard (@franklinleonard) May 26, 2020
I wonder how many black reports she has, or has ever had, during the course of her career.
I wonder what lies she’s told about them and how it had affected their lives and careers. https://t.co/eArX7APgPF

I hope Franklin Templeton has a legal or HR team that is willing to work overtime looking into every single interaction Amy Cooper has had with every single person of color in her firm. I would suggest interviews start with the mail room or janitorial and work up to management. https://t.co/ONxxgxdRY5— Michelle Bhasin (@michellebhasin) May 26, 2020

As an 18 year old African American male, white women absolutely terrify me. Like this shit is so traumatizing. The cops don't care about my community service, my GPA, me being an actual fucking human, they just think I'm a dirty nigger that they should kill, fuck you Amy Cooper https://t.co/23RHuk5pCh— Keion (@Keionisbored) May 25, 2020

Thread: Meet Amy Cooper, a Vice President at Franklin Templeton (@FTI_US/@FTI_Global) who threatened a Black man’s life by calling the cops and telling them “there is an African-American man threatening my life” when all the man did was ask her to leash her dog in Central Park. https://t.co/6Hqlj2Z3iU pic.twitter.com/4QbsLPFc6r— Resist Programming 🛰 (@RzstProgramming) May 25, 2020

This is violence...as a vvhite woman in 2020 she knows good and fcuking well that there is power in her fake yet convincing cries of danger from a Black man. Amy Cooper is a menace to society and should be prosecuted. Naming and shaming is not enough. https://t.co/CnY9jFCAWV— BlackWomenViews Media (@blackwomenviews) May 26, 2020

Dear @NYPDShea,— Don Winslow (@donwinslow) May 26, 2020
What happened in Central Park today with Amy Cooper is a crime. It should be prosecuted, but equally important is the teachable moment it offers the NYPD, a dept with a horrific history of prosecuting *INNOCENT* black people.
You need to denounce this publicly.

All Amy Cooper had to do was to put her dog on a leash and go on about her business but no, she had to stop & put that "uppity black man" in his place by lying & playing the victim.— And The Tweet Goes On (@lacadri34) May 26, 2020
