You are welcome to your opinion.
But the fact is that no "race" was given an exemption.

Dude.

You're defending the exception.

Incorrect.

I'm disputing the claim that a "race" was given an exemption.

A point too subtle for some. I suppose. Even when explicitly stated.

The exclusion of non people of color denotes a race. If you don't see that, you're dense.

Which race?

Jesus, really? Let's do a simple process of elimination and pull our heads out of our asses.

Black?
Hispanic?
Asian?
Native American?
Hawaiian?

Or are they all the same?

White?

Oh, that's right. That's conveniently absent from your list. Again.

We are all the same in terms of the law. So why include "people of color" in there as an exception? Its a very simple question that you've made a point to dodge and you know it.

Look, man, can we put an end to this game? I get your point. Many races are included in the exemption. All races that can be considered "of color" are exempt from the mask requirement (if they feel, or claim to feel threatened). We have already agreed that white people are not considered people of color, so can you now admit that the exemption does not include white people?

Nothing to admit. I never said that particular exemption did not exempt whites.

Whites are not excluded from the other exemptions.

I said that the exemption was a bad idea. Mostly for health reasons but also because it would result in reactions such as this thread.

All of them but white, if the story is correct. Apparently its more about color, not about race.

Racial profiling and harassment, to be precise. Which various non-whites are subject to.

You didn't answer my question:

"2 people in oregon, 1 white 1 of colour.
None of them wear a mask, only 1 of them is breaking the rules, solely due to the colour of their skin... Or am I wrong or something?"

I can mostly live with that. But I would like to add one more reason that the order should be ill advised: It's just wrong.

I think I did.

If the white one has a medical condition which precludes or is exacerbated by the wearing of a mask, or if the white one is under the age of 12, or if the white one has a disability which prevents use of a mask, they are not breaking the rules.

Your claim was this:

It's a bit... In your face divisiveness having a separate rule for a whole race of people in the same town/country don't you think?
"Of color" is not a race.

Yeah.
I get followed around in stores because I'm white all the time.

If a white person is considered a race, then a person of colour also is, just not specified which kind of makes it worse for white people, don't you think?

Whatever, you'd make a real good politician in today's standards.
