Black Woman Shuts Down White Guy's TikTok Rant Comparing Face Masks To Slave Muzzles

Anti-maskers continue to dramatize masks to the point you would think the act of wearing a mask was, itself, too difficult to complete. On the way, they're involving some absurd narratives in their quest to have a valid point.

For example, a White man @pharaoh_nefertiti addressed on TikTok decided to compare masks to the muzzles slaves would be fitted with as punishment.

But what he wasn't ready for was for her to absolutely shut down his comparison.

"Did you know that in the 1800s when slaves would misbehave, slave owners would put cloths over their face and make them go work in the hot fields til they passed out?" the man said.

"So don't forget to put on your mask before you go to work like a good little slave of the government."

The first thing our TikToker did was correct the White man's historical inaccuracies, as they made the slaves' muzzles sound much less obtrusive and harmful than they were.

She asked:

"You mean the metal muzzles that they would use?"
"You mean the ones that would cover their entire face where they could barely talk much less eat?"
"They most certainly could not remove them."

She then went in on him for making the comparison in the first place.

"So slave masters would put that on them as a form of punishment that they couldn't take off, and you have all of the PWC nerve and gall to compare that to a mask that you can remove during the middle of a goddamn pandemic?"
"Keep Black people out of your f**ked up narrative."

Mask mandates continue to go in and out of enforcement around the country as the highly contagious Delta variant tears through unvaccinated numbers.

The use of masks and people desperate to find an excuse not to use them became a major bone of contention since the beginning of the pandemic.

Anti-maskers should probably stop trying to compare their minor inconveniences with slavery or the Holocaust.

As our original poster pointed out, the two things have almost nothing in common.
