Concerns about America’s public health and racial conflicts clash in New York … where a black woman’s refusal to wear a mask has become an ugly, super-tense subway scene.
The video begins with the woman pushing an older white man away from her. Apparently he came into her face, demanding that she put on a face covering … which she didn’t want to do, and instead turned to him and a few other travelers.
She accused the people who shouted at her of attacking her because she was black – and shouted at them. The shout and the lack of a mask only intensified the intensity of the moment.
At the end of the accident, more and more people in the subway car got upset … some against her, some defended her, and others just angered the conflict by holding the train. Someone threatened to call the cops, but we still don’t know if they reacted to the scene.
As all hell broke loose … you could reduce the tension with a knife.
