Restaurants reopening promise a 'new normal.' 'Normal' was never something to aspire to.
A viral photo of young people drinking on a restaurant patio during a protest reveals two Americas with different visions of what 'going back to normal' would look like
.”Activists pointed out that the cutesy message was actually an admission that the brave brunch-skippers hadn’t seen much of a problem with America’s brutal inequalities before the 2016 election, and likely wouldn’t show up to a protest organized by, say, Black Lives Matter. They’d go back to brunch. This photo seems to provide the proof: carefree white people in the foreground (complete with craft beer) enjoying the sunshine as the street convulses with protests against one of America’s most fundamental sins: state violence toward black people.
Because of the pandemic, these two groups are twinned: The pleasure seekers and the justice seekers both must take to the streets. The beer drinkers risk exposing each other to the virus for a pleasant afternoon, while the protesters take the risk to fight
against another epidemic: police brutality. The protesters wear masks; the beer drinkers do not. Maskless and entirely white, the drinkers recall the maskless, white, armed protesters who demonstrated against lockdown measures just weeks earlier. Those protesters were met with toleration and civility; the protesters streaking past in the photo will be met with tear gas, police violence, and arrest.Read more: Eater »

Sports Have Never Felt More Meaningless Than Right Now'Sports, like much of entertainment, exist as a distraction. But boy does it seem irresponsible to be distracted right now.' williamfleitch writes williamfleitch I’d argue there is nothing that brings our cultures together like sports - and we need that more than ever now. williamfleitch I think you missed the mark here, Will. Sports very much unite us. They are also a great pressure valve.

California braces for second wave of coronavirus even as first wave is far from overExperts are worried about the potential for new surges of disease as California reopens. Hahahah comedy. Right on cue. There is no 2nd wave, there isn’t even a virus left to talk about. Yeah...Americans seem to really care about social-distancing these days.
