“So in order to enter stores now, do I bring a face mask, a brick, or both? 2020 is confusing”

The 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic in the United States in March and April 2020 was followed by the George Floyd protests at the end of May 2020. The former involved wearing face masks to enter stores; the latter sometimes involved throwing bricks at stores.

“So in order to enter stores now, do I need to bring a face mask or a brick? 2020 is confusing” was posted on Facebook by Jerry Peppers on June 1, 2020.

The George Floyd protests is an ongoing series of protests, riots, and demonstrations against police brutality and racism in policing. The protests began in the United States in Minneapolis on May 26, 2020,[3] following the death of George Floyd, a 46-year-old black man, after Derek Chauvin, a white police officer, knelt on Floyd’s neck for almost nine minutes during an arrest the previous day.
