Woman attacks health-compromised, cane-carrying 54-yr-old in Staples store for mask-scolding her

While the American media love to frame the coronavirus mask issue as one of purportedly “ignorant” white people versus the rest of the country, the facts tell a different story.

Multiple videos have emerged in recent weeks of non-whites, particularly blacks, making scenes because of mask mandates and mask-shaming citizens scolding them over not wearing face coverings.

One particularly jarring video that’ll likely receive zero coverage from the anti-white media shows an angry black woman savagely shoving a 54-year-old woman to the ground inside a Staples store allegedly for telling her to wear the mask hanging from her chin.

Watch (*Graphic content):

The video was recorded inside a Staples store in Hackensack, New Jersey last Wednesday. The victim, Margot Kagan, a recent liver transplant recipient and single mother of two teenagers, wound up breaking her leg, and all over a polite request.

Speaking with NJ Advance Media, she said she’d simply told the woman “you’re endangering everyone by not wearing your mask” and then put her head down.

In response, the angry black woman rushed her like a bull, prompting Kagan to wave her cane in defense. That’s when the perp shoved her with the ferocity of a lion.

“My knee broke while I was falling. I later learned it was my tibia,” she said.

“She’s on quite a few immunosuppressant drugs. She’s a cancer survivor, too, so she doesn’t have the strongest constitution,” Kagan’s brother told Advance Media.

Of course, the argument could be made that she therefore shouldn’t have been out in the public in the first place putting herself at risk. Some likewise have argued that Kagan should have just minded her business.

Look:

As of Saturday, the perpetrator was still on the loose.

The Washington Post even ran an extensive piece about “white anti-mask protesters” who’d allegedly “jeered [at] a black pastor demanding Tulsa race massacre reparations.”

But what you won’t find anywhere in the national American media is coverage of attacks like this:

The media have instead been busy attacking allegedly “racist” white people for refusing to wear a mask.

“How racism, bigotry and elitism may be driving mask resistance,” a letter to the editors published at the Los Angeles Times reads.

“Why Won’t White People Wear Masks?” a blog post at Medium reads.

“More white people in Burnaby need to wear masks,” a column at Burnaby Now reads.

Conversely, the media have been busy defending black people who refuse to wear a mask.

“For Black Americans, Wearing A Mask Comes With Complicated Anxieties,” a post at FiveThirtyEight reads.

“For Black Men, Fear That Masks Will Invite Racial Profiling,” a report at The New York Times reads.

“For Black Men, Homemade Masks May Be a Risk All Their Own,” a piece at Time magazine reads.

It seems like a racially motivated double standard — one that’s played out over and over again amid the coronavirus pandemic and subsequent George Floyd riots.

Continuing her remarks to NJ Advance Media, Kagan said she hopes the perp is caught and arrested.

“I hope they catch her. I’d like to see her spend a couple of nights in jail,” she said.

Her brother concurred.

“This had me crying, just watching it and thinking about it,” he said of the surveillance footage seen up top. “Hopefully they find this person because she’s dangerous. She could hurt somebody else and that’s got to be dealt with.”

Indeed, though it’d help to spread the word if the mainstream American media would cover stories such as this.

It would’ve also helped if the other customers present at the Staples where the incident occurred had stepped up and done something to help Kagan …
