18. Seriously? For the same reason people voted in person despite Covid-19 risks.

When there is a knee on your neck, Covid-19 becomes the least of your worries. If that makes no sense to you, consider whether you would walk unmasked through an unmasked crowd if that was the only way for you to get emergency, life-saving medical care you need.

For protestors, it doesn't have to be so personal for them to risk their lives. They've given up on a society that shrugs at police brutality. In short, they are empathetic, compassionate human beings who feel that the absofuckingLEAST they can do is protest such killings, even at the risk of Covid-19.

Some people, of course, feel they've done enough when they type some rage and add an emoji holding a candle. Low risk, low energy, low commitment. Eeezy peezy. Others, however, feel that the only way they can help the next generation is to protest, even at the risk of being surrounded by dirty cops, self-interested looters, white-supremacist and, yes, even Covid-19.
