Outrage over a photo of a booth at Michigan College giving away free masks to’minorities only.’
People responded negatively to a banner announcing a project undertaken by a student at Michigan State University, which they claimed was meant at publicizing the discrepancies in COVID-19 care between white and minority communities.
The experiment was designed as a sort of media activism, according to the student, who stated on Twitter that “the reactions are the goal of the project.”

Several studies have found that minority populations are at higher risk of severe COVID-19 infection than white people, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Black people, Native Americans and Native Hawaiians, and Pacific Islanders have greater COVID-19 death rates per 100,000 persons than white Americans, according to a presentation of CDC statistics from Emory University.
