Now, instead of "harrassment" for wearing a mask (from the right, supposedly), they will receive harrassment (from the left) for not wearing a mask...Not entirely certain how this could be considered a step forward for them.

It also indicates that masks (or public health) are obviously not considered to be a top priority by the government responsible for this change...Or maybe this is some exceedingly clever "alt-right" government trying to encourage certain groups not to wear masks in order to have them infected by the virus? 8O

White person could be racially profiled and harassed by a store salesman who thinks they have money to spend, because they're white.

Not wearing a mask may help white people stop a racist store salesman. :)

In one article people said that wearing a "bandana" would possibly racially profile them, but the law is stating a "mask". Which does not have to be a bandana. So... confused...
