Oregon county says ‘masks for everyone but blacks’


Lincoln County, Oregon has mandated face masks for everyone, except for persons of color who are fearful they will be racially profiled or harassed.

The coastal county’s health department announced that all residents must wear face coverings in public settings where they may come within six feet of each other.

Other exceptions include people with medical conditions.

Lincoln County is the home of Lincoln City, Newport, Depot Beach, and Yachats, all rural logging and cow grazing country along the Pacific Ocean, with a population of 46,034.

The racial makeup of the county is 90.59% White, 0.30% Black or African American, 3.14% Native American, 0.93% Asian, 0.16% Pacific Islander, 1.66% from other races, and 3.23% from two or more races. 4.76% of the population were Hispanic or Latino of any race, according to the 2010 Census.


  1. Not surprised. Oregon is a far left state. The governor never was concerned about equality, seems minorities are more equal. Liberal sewer.

    • Interesting take, Greg. It could be argued that they are trying to rid themselves of 3.14% of their population by infecting them.

  2. My shoot from the hip is that they are former logging towns. Spotted Owl did them in. Californication followed.

  3. They’re hypocritical right? Claim free speech but when you tell them they don’t like Alaskan natives, they call up your boss and threaten your job.

  4. That is racist as F!! So now we are going to provide even more special rights to 13% of the population while imposing even more suppression of our freedoms.
