This is all about science, every bit of it. (It’s Not!) Unless you’re a black or brown American. Then wearing a mask is optional. It’s true!! More Black Americans could die from this policy, not less. Call me a cynic, but this seems very racist. Black Lives Matter less in Lincoln County apparently.
Looks like the Democratic Party are back to their roots! It’s time for Jim Crow II. These edicts are sounding increasingly like orders from Alablama Governor Wallace in the 50’s, or some racist & segregationist Democrat/Communist Party apparatchik. Democratically elected bodies are now sending out “directives” that segregate Americans based on skin color. On SKIN COLOR!!! We are to mindlessly obey our new health & safety masters – if we are white. If black? Not so much:
The New York Post offers some quotes from one of Lincoln County’s decision makers:
“For many black people, deciding whether or not to wear a bandanna in public to protect themselves and others from contracting coronavirus is a lose-lose situation that can result in life-threatening consequences either way,” ReNika Moore, director of the ACLU’s Racial Justice Program, told CNN.
Trevon Logan, who is black, said orders to wear face coverings are “basically telling people to look dangerous given racial stereotypes that are out there.”
“This is in the larger context of black men fitting the description of a suspect who has a hood on, who has a face covering on,” Logan, an economics professor at Ohio State University, told the outlet.
But Dr Fauci has repeatedly warned us that people of color are at a higher risk from contracting COVID-19. It’s all very confusing . . .
