Karina Bacchi, you owe an apology to Giovanna Ewbank and the black community

Days after Giovanna Ewbank was filmed defending the children of a woman who used racial slurs in Portugal, Karina Bacchi decided to speak out in the worst possible way on the matter. In an interview with the Positividade podcast, the blonde denounced the fact that actress Maria Adelia Coutinho had stalked Freire de Andrade de Barros, who was later arrested by the police. “This week I spoke to friends. There was a case that surfaced in the media of a mother who seemed to have prejudices against her children,” Karina said. It’s important to realize that by saying “it seems,” she cast doubt on what happened and became a police case.

Karina continued: “I agree that we need to defend our children, but I don’t think the defense is spitting, cursing, hitting, attacking and making people think the person has done little. But we must defend our children. What example are we setting in our reactions, in the way we react? So the world applauds and thinks it’s great. That shocks me too.”

Blond with light eyes, Karina Bacchi doesn’t have to deal with racism. You probably won’t see your child being harshly attacked because of the color of their skin and hearing insults that are unimaginable for a child. With such unfortunate statements, the former actress and now a nun not only shows an enormous lack of empathy: racism seems to her to be less violent than a mother who defends her black children tooth and nail.

As a white person you can at least practice being different in such situations. In other words, put yourself in someone else’s shoes. Karina preferred to insert herself in a court place. And it was terribly unfortunate. He owes an apology not only to Giovanna Ewbank, but to the entire black community. In assessing how aggressive the defense of violent violence like racism is, Karina Bacchi only reinforces a completely false stereotype. It is unfortunate to see someone using the mic to propagate this type of idea without acknowledging their privilege in an essentially biased society like ours. Bad example.
