(Right Country) – Lincoln County, Oregon has decided that, now that everyone is talking about racism, it’s time to bring segregation back.
In the form of mask mandates.
And no…this is not a joke.
BizPac Review explains:
In a directive last week, health officials in Lincoln County — which is 90% white — said all white people must wear face masks in public in order to stop the spread of the coronavirus.
However, the health officials said “people of color” don’t have to wear masks because of “heightened concerns about racial profiling and harassment due to wearing face coverings in public.”
“People of color” is a blanket euphemism for black people. The ACLU’s ReNika Moore confirmed that face masks are a sensitive issue for the black community.
“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,” Moore claimed.
Trevon Logan, a black professor at Ohio State University, claimed that orders to wear face coverings are “basically telling people to look dangerous, given racial stereotypes that are out there.”
Logan added: “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. It looks like almost every criminal sketch of any garden-variety black suspect.”
So, one has to wonder how deadly the threat of the novel coronavirus is if exceptions can be made for face masks on the grounds of avoiding racial stereotypes.

This guy brutally assaulted a Macy’s employee because of his race and then slandered him by claiming he said the n-word, which was a lie. This is a horrific hate crime and if the races were reversed it would be the only thing we talk about for days.
