The governor who declared masks as optional at the gathering? Yeah I agree what the hell is she doing?

The real question is, are you fine with people not wearing masks at events they think are important enough to gather for, or not.
Not really part of it but just my two cents, at least leave the guns, and/or bricks, teargas, rubber bullets and weapons in general at home.

Every protest I’ve seen specifically says “mask up.” Moreover, there isn’t a protest anywhere where a governor told the people that masks are optional.

If you’re out and around people you should be wearing a mask. I don’t care if it’s a protest or a trump rally. Wear a damn mask.

But 90+% of us are wearing them. I doubt the numbers will be as high for that fireworks event.

Way more major news things have been happening and we’ve been discussing masks for like 5 days now.

Which is right where they want us, I guess.

Hulu has removed an episode of "The Golden Girls" due to concerns over blackface, according to Deadline and The Hollywood Reporter.

The 1988 episode of the sitcom, titled "Mixed Blessing" (Season 3 Episode 23), shows Michael (Scott Jacoby), the son of Dorothy (Beatrice Arthur), planning to marry an older Black woman, Lorraine (Rosalind Cash).

In the episode, Blanche (Rue McClanahan) and Rose (Betty White) were wearing mud masks when they met the fiancée.

We have been watching Golden Girls every night and just watched that episode a few weeks ago. It was a really great episode that dealt with race and Dorothy’s racism head on. Dorothy was never shown as being right, the butt of the face mask joke was Blanche and Rose (not black people) and the lesson of everything was acceptance and understanding. So, good job Hulu.

So that would mean what, 5 million of the jobs lost in March/April are now back? (I don't pretend to do math).

Setting aside the fact that weird guy yelling looks and acts like Mango from SNL, it's just crazy how much hatred these people have in their hearts.

If you’re out and around people you should be wearing a mask. I don’t care if it’s a protest or a trump rally. Wear a damn mask.
Moreso, I'd suggest that the.......... demographic makeup of a protest is comprised of people who are probably a wee bit more inclined to mask up than the attendees of a Trump rally.
