Well, I mean, the entire point of the Jezebel article is to presume that Kari Ferrell's race played a significant, even central, role in her fraudulent activities, even though everything we know about Ferrell tells us that she was basically the opposite of the stereotype presented in the article. In this case, I don't think it counts as "playing the race card" to call Jezebel out

No, I think you're right, hence my comment somewhere further down in response to another comment of yours. My criticism would have been more appropriate if it had been about this not being the equivalent of white-on-black racism.
