      @MythinformedMKE
      Ibram X. Kendi believes that any policy that has a disparate racial impact is a racist policy. Given his stance, we asked him if vaccine mandates would then be a racist policy due to the disparate racial impact. In response, he claims POC do not have access to the vaccine…

        If only there were free same day appointments at most pharmacies in America. We should do something about that.

          Many places don't even require appointments anymore. My pharmacy doesn't. You can just walk in and get your covid vaccine.

            Much as I enjoyed Stamped From the Beginning, I’ll disagree with Kendi on this. I wouldn’t say that any disparate impact reflects racism, I just think it needs to be ruled out - a sort of presumption of racism. (And before you go there: I’d consider it sufficient to demonstrate that the effect is negligible or insignificant, or perhaps that the remedy is both simple and in the complete control of the Black individual.)

                Got to witness live a temper tantrum of one of the anti.mask freaks yesterday. Town I live in has an indoor mask mandate. The loser walks in the door for exiting at the ice cream shop because it is the one closest to his car, no mask and when they said no mask no service he started cursing. All of them sheep and idiots and finally left cursing all the way back to his car. Now wouldn’t it have just been so easy to put a mask on for five freaking minutes?

                  Without knowing more info, I presume the ice cream shop allows customers to eat their ice cream inside the shop?
                  So one must wear a mask just to enter & exit?


                  Many people see the disparity & lack of common sense in the enforcement of wearing a mask inside an establishment but not in galas, mass events & gatherings across the country?
                  BTW, did anyone watch the Emmys?

                  The hypocrisy has become overwhelming for many. Including myself.

                    No, all seating is picnic tables outside. There is no reason to remove your mask at all when purchasing or picking up the ice cream. I am on anti rejection meds so this is an issue of high concern for me. Which is why I don’t eat inside restaurants at all. I understand your point, that being said having a mask on 70% of the time is better than 0. But not fair risk it.

                      The Emmys required all attendees to be vaccinated against the virus as well as take a PCR test 48 hours prior. What you call hypocrisy I call a reasonable exception. Which is not to say the rules are perfect. Far from it. But whatever rules an establishment sets should be followed by their patrons or they should go elsewhere. If you are overwhelmed having to mask up for ice cream, while Ted Lasso cast members get to collect Emmys mask free, that's a you problem.

                        Do I have to start all over again on the difference between "a double standard" and "hypocrisy?"

                            Two groups being treated differently is just a double standard. Hypocrisy is holding someone else to a moral standard that one cannot or does not meet oneself. So if the Emmys were a "Mask up!" rally where everyone was unmasked, that would be hypocritical. As it stands, it’s just a situation where masks weren’t required, while there are other situations where they are.

                              OK. Some double standards are hypocritical, though. There can be crossover between the two.

                                Heard Biden had as scheduled to talk about Covid at 10 am EDT. So I thought great finally he will require vaccination to fly or travel by train. Stupid me. Just more pleading to the unvaccinated to get vaccinated. This has failed now for nine months. When will he realize the people he is trying to persuade laugh at everything he says?
