    1. It seems like no matter what is going on in this country, the police will find away to racially profile when it comes to “enforcing the law.” I read that in Texas you will soon be fined $1,000 for not wearing a mask, yet police continue to racially profile mask-wearers.

  1. But…but…Trump just said that Black folks are the face of coronavirus deaths and that something should be done about that. I guess this is what he was referring to; escorting Black men out of the store for trying to protect themselves by using masks so that they don’t become another face of coronavirus death statistics.

    I am NOT surprised that the racist klan kkkops are using surgical masks as another reason to hassle Black people as they try and protect themselves while shopping during a virus pandemic.

    I seriously get SO sick of this shit!

    1. It appears this is happening everywhere! A family member of mine told me that today at the Dollar Store she saw a security guard tell an older Black man that he couldn’t wear his mask in the store, and so the man turned around and left. Even the pandemic doesn’t stop the 🐖 from trying to enforce a racial hierarchy.

      1. And yet if we were to turn around and cough in their damn faces, we’d get arrested for attempted murder. For the love of !!!!!! The shit is ramping up and it is always to our detriment, but yet the rallying cry is “We are ALL in this together!” Seriously???!!! I can’t tell! That’s just a bunch of bullshit!

      1. Caleb, it is a damn shame what we have to do or not do to protect ourselves during a pandemic or even when there is no pandemic simply because of the color of our skin. None of this makes ANY sense. We did not row ourselves over here and so why that shit is on us, I cannot for the life of me, figure out.

        I read the complete article and I just wanted to scream! We are damned if we do and damned if we don’t and it is ALL done by design. We aren’t meant to survive, That much is crystal clear. I have been saying for quite some time that the whites will not be satisfied until our numbers are that of the Indians. And we all know how they are NOT faring.
