Maybe you are missing something. The exemption isn't based on skin color alone. There's another factor. It singles out people of color who fear being racially profiled or harassed if they wear a mask in public.
So anyone of a non-sanctioned skin colour, who fears being profiled or harassed doesn't deserve the same consideration?
I wonder who made that thoughtful, and fair decision...?

n a move that was as devoid of science as it was common sense, Lincoln County, Oregon Health Commissioner Clair Hall, (formerly known as Bill Hall) demanded that everyone be required to wear face masks except people of color.
That's some crazy shit.
Yeah, that's what I thought. Even before I knew who penned it.
Not that CNN screeches racism, that I expected. Where there isn't enough of it, they manufacture it.
No, I thought granting and removing rights based on race was crazy shit. One might call it 'institutional racism'.
Good, GOOD! Let the hate FLOW through you! FEEL the POWER of the DARK SIDE!!!
You sure do hate CNN, but libeling them doesn't change the accuracy of their reporting, which you clearly can't dispute. The Lincoln Country Commissioners called the outcry racist, so racist it is until you can prove otherwise by using facts. Spare me the ad hominem squealing.
Nobody was mentioned championing an exemption for other folks either. Haters were hating, pure and simple.
Now let's cut to the chase shall we? I'm a white man of a certain age and I grew up in Texas and Arkansas and saw the hate against African American and Chicano people up close and personal and I can tell you something you should really consider.
The bottom line isn't what you say, it's where you stand, and there is no middle ground. If you aren't against the racists, no matter how noble you think your reasons are, you're enabling them and folks will call you a racist.
The same goes for re-posting mockery of a trans-person. People will see that as endorsing transphobia, and will call you on that too.
It sucks, but that's life.
Finally, "granting and removing rights based on race" is crazy, but that's not what those Commissioners thought they were doing. Here's what they had to say
We included the last protection for those within our communities of color who historically, and often personally, found themselves the victims of harassment and violence. After last month’s protests, the national attention given to issues of racism, police tactics and inequity, we felt this last exception would be embraced and understood as a small effort to start addressing the realities some of our neighbors deal with on a daily basis.
Naive maybe, and they could have worded their order better, but I'm willing to cut them some slack. After all, I know what side I'm on.
