A middle aged woman who has been identified as Svitlana Flom, was caught on video repeatedly calling the police on a black woman seemingly minding her business while sitting on a bench in a public space at New York City park, the city’s Upper West Side.
According to the black woman who recorded the incident and uploaded it on her Instagram page, said Flom was making multiple calls to the police and faking distress while telling vague stories about being attacked.
This is barely a week Amy Cooper went viral after she called the police on a black man, claiming he was threatening her life while video footage showed she was in no danger. Cooper lost her job and her dog following the incident, which has served as a cautionary tale to white women everywhere, teaching them, once and for all, that it is not OKAY to use the police as your personal black people exterminator.
Despite the ongoing protest against racism in the country, Flom was still displaying hate on another black woman and practically doing the same thing ‘playing the white card’ Amy Cooper did to a black.
Twitter users took it upon themselves to drag her on full blast.
A white woman identified as #SvitlanaFlom called the cops multiple times because a black woman was sitting on a bench. Oppression happens on so many levels. This is #WhiteFragility . https://t.co/oUBsUASZLX— lucy yao (@liebestud) May 31, 2020

When will white learn to live together as one or possibly learn the value of walking away? It will make life so easier, even at this digital age of social media which has given blacks a way to fight back.
