On Saturday, TMZ reported that a woman in Florida called a Black woman boarding a bus a “good little slave” for putting on a protective face mask.
“It went down in Pasco County, Florida Friday, when the 2 women were waiting for a bus,” said the report. “When it arrived, the black woman followed the county’s mandate and put on her mask, since she was boarding an enclosed space.”
“You’re wearing a mask like all the other slaves out there,” she added.
“You’re telling me, a woman of color, to be a ‘good little slave’?” replied the Black woman, Megan Charleton.
“I’m a woman of color too,” the other woman replied. “I’m a Mexican woman of color.”
“It doesn’t matter,” said Charleton. “You don’t say that.”
Pasco county has made the wearing of masks mandatory in public spaces.
