Oh no! Where are we going with masks?

This asshat was in Santee, CA. Fortunately, store security asked him to remove the KKK hood, and he did.

Why does this dishearten me so?

Wow, that is disturbing, and sad.
He knew what he was doing, and he wanted to be noticed.
I'm glad store security took action.
Can't imagine what it would be like to live at his home.

It disheartens you because it's racism. People are awful.

It's because the mask tells you who he is, what he thinks, and what kind of people he votes for. We naively thought for a long time that Americans were better than this. We have learned in the last few years that quite a few aren't. We now know the truth and the truth is profoundly disturbing.

did he have a medical mask underneath? If not was he given one by the store or is it not a requirement where you live.
We have been wearing masks so long it is hard for me to imagine anyone goes out with one now.

My question is, does he really believe what heís peddling by wearing that or was it strictly for attention?

Regardless, itís racist and disgusting.

That’s just absolutely deplorable.

Masks are recommended but not required where I live and stores certainly aren’t handing them out to patrons.

Chipmunky, where are you that has access to that many masks?


I did a curbside pickup at Target yesterday and about 75% of the people I saw had masks on... though the amount of people there was insane.

At first I didn't think it was real, but then I found the article.



I find it disgusting and so, so very sad.

I am very glad store security made him remove that racist "head covering."
There will always be idiots out there, unfortunately. And if he didn't have another much more appropriate mask to wear, he should have been shown the door....again!

I think I used the wrong word. Meant to write cloth masks not medical masks. We all seem to be sewing masks right now, so there are tons of cloth masks, but you are right some PPEs are in short supply.

He is an attention seeking little hands and feet man asshat that forgot his Confederate flag. The management should have removed him immediately.

So disheartening to see that. Even if it was meant to be a joke, some "jokes" are just never funny.

Is it possible that no group felt the need to protest the store for taking away his freedom of expression? Sadly that seems to be the usual response. If no one protested that is encouraging. It does feel like we're living in the twilight zone.

Sometimes I think it's better when you can see them coming (although I might have been able to see that one coming without the KKK hood!) You know his attitude didn't change when he took off the hood. Don't ever kid yourself: racism is everywhere.
