Observation: Black people still wearing masks
Was at Wal-Mart with all the other smelly people recently. Noticed that just about every single black person from all age groups were still wearing their masks. Hispanics were not wearing masks, and about 95% of white people were not wearing them either.

Is there something I am missing why so many black people are still devoted to the masks?

I noticed the exact same thing yesterday. Easily manipulated I guess.

They are the largest demographic who has not been vaccinated.

When you see a mask on now a days,

60% chance the wearer is either black or asian.

I am seeing less and less masks around here, but something must have happened because when I was in NYC last summer the ONLY people I saw not wearing masks were black people.

This. They don't exactly have a good history with vaccines in this country.

Same thing I noticed. They tend to rely on the government more than other races is the only reason I can think why they wear masks in great numbers.

Didn't you hear COVID targets black people more so than white people....it also tries to kill them harder.

Because all they heard from the media was that Covid kills black people at a higher rate than any other race(which is true).

Not that long ago the media and politicians were lying stating that COVID disproportionately affected ppl of color. And those ppl still believe the bs I’m sure.

Watched TV in Philly a month ago. The fear-porn PSAs on local network TV were directed at the black community.
Granted there is a large AA community in PHL but the said PSA's were relentless, intended to frighten the populous and across all generations.

What the media didn't tell them was it had nothing to do with their skin color. It was because black people are more likely to be obese and have co-morbilities

None of the covid propaganda aimed at Black people had nothing to do with eating healthy and exercising. But, healthy choices are the real mask to ward off viruses. Not everyone will be free.

Younger black males are wearing them to make identification more difficult when they commit their crimes.

What I find weird is black people don't trust the government on medical care but they trust the government when the government says wear masks.
