No one is saying protests are safe. Organizers are begging people to wear masks to reduce the risk, and they are. I saw the marchers on Sunday and the vast majority of the protestors were wearing masks. Organizers are also recommending protestors isolate after a protest and get tested for COVID 5+ days after attending.

I think we’re all in agreement that masks are highly effective in risk mitigation but it doesn’t eliminate risk. Being shoulder to shoulder with other people with masks on is far riskier than being 6 feet apart without masks. The droplets go up in the air and come down within a couple feet of the subject, hence why you’d put several people at risk. Also there are bans in the most populous states of more than 50 people for this exact reason. Super spreading events pose the largest risk to society, unlike going to a salon or a restaurant where you are 6 feet apart.

The big difference for me is one group is protesting for the ‘freedom’ to get their hair cut during a pandemic and the other is protesting systemic racism and it’s central role in American life.

Look salesforce, I don’t disagree with you in concept on the protests. But do you honestly believe that the other group was protesting because they just wanted a haircut? Could maybe have more to do with being completely financially ruined, unemployed, and/or losing their life’s work/businesses? If we are going to discuss this intelligently, we should all probably at least start from a non-hyperbolic starting position that acknowledges all the legitimate issues with all this. Many people have been completely ruined. That isn’t just being upset about a “haircut”. Most everyone is just talking over one another.
