CNN: People Of Color Should Not Wear Face Masks

The Lid:

The CDC asked Americans to wear face coverings to help stop the spread of COVID-19 but CNN explains that perhaps people of color shouldn’t wear facemasks. people of color face masks

The quote that “Trevon Logan, an economics professor at Ohio State University, will not be following this guidance.”“We have a lot of examples of the presumed criminality of black men in general,” Logan, who is black, told CNN. “And then we have the advice to go out in public in something that … can certainly be read as being criminal or nefarious, particularly when applied to black men.”

Logan is not alone in his concerns. On social media and in interviews with CNN, a number of people of color — activists, academics and ordinary Americans — expressed fears that homemade masks could exacerbate racial profiling and place blacks and Latinos in danger. And that is the basic content of the article.

Did they actually think this through?  If everyone is wearing some sort of face covering, who is going to stand out to possibly be profiled. People who are joining the crowd and covering their faces or people who aren’t wearing face coverings. read more

  1. Wear a clown mask to match your thinking Mr Logan, you poor perpetual victim.

  2. Excellent Advice!
    2 days ago CNN was stating that Black are people suffer more from the COVID-19 Virus.
    The Argument was so stupid I channel the channel.
    Basically the Jobs like grocery & cleaning workers were more frequently done by African Americans etc….

    I guess this IDIOT proved that theory Incorrect!

    It is obviously due to listening to ASSHOLES!

  3. Note to CNN article author Fernando Alfonso III:

    The best mask for you would be a clear plastic one, and one that covers your whole head is much more effective than just covering your nose and mouth. Be sure to snug it down around your neck to prevent leaking.
    OK. Just to be on the safe side: </sarc>

  4. i dont know…If i was working at a liquor store and saw a black guy walking in wearing a mask….

    just sayin’

  5. And then in 2 months, they will point to the “disproportionately high” death rate among blacks as more proof of our racist country.

  6. CNN headline … ‘World To End Tomorrow: Women & Minorities Hit The Hardest’

    liberation is in understanding the motive behind the message

  7. PLEASE don’t wear masks!

    Ah, Darwinism.

  8. “We have a lot of examples of the presumed criminality of black men”

    but we are letting those examples out of prison and jail so they don’t catch the virus

  9. I guess that’s better advice than asking ‘people of color’ to cut two eye holes in a pillowcase….

  10. Molon beat me to it. Christ, it gets old how they beat that drum.

    James Taranto’s old Best of the Web series at the WSJ used to capture their constant viewing every story through the prism of no matter how bad something is, women and minorities have it worse than everyone.

    Victimhood has its privileges. That’s why you see so many people trying to impersonate it. Elizabeth Warren, Shaun King, Rachel Dolezal, etc.

  11. Way to play the card! Now get sick so you can blame white people!

  12. I needed a good laugh today. This article is 8 days late.

  13. If you have no N-95, I hear a couple strips of duct tape will work – self adhesive; no straps or ties needed!
