Perhaps this has good intentions, like giving the benefit of the doubt that the OP is genuine in their identity. That said, encouraging protesters (yes even white ones!) not to wear masks undermines the effectiveness of protesting. Less people will show up, knowing their identities are broadcast, police will have a MUCH easier time identifying suspects. We use white people especially in protests organized by PoC to do some of the more dangerous tasks like standing frontline against officers, etc., and discouraging them from wearing masks will decrease that frontline quite a lot. Again, perhaps there are good intentions here but preserving anonymity from police and protection against tear gas etc. is not something I will blame ANY protester for — -
