Photo of booth giving free masks for ‘Minorities Only’ at Michigan college sparks outrage
An experiment conducted by a student at Michigan State University they said was aimed at highlighting the disparities in COVID-19 care between white and minority groups received pushback as people reacted to a sign advertising the project.
The student has said on Twitter that the experiment was intended as a form of media activism and that “the reactions are the point of the project.”
“The point of this experiment was to get the negative reaction out of my white counterparts and the positive reaction from minorities. Mission accomplished for sure,” they wrote.
