Our betters don’t care about us.
Rules for thee, but not for me.
You must wear a mask inside in San Francisco even if you have the COVID vaccine.
Authoritative San Francisco Mayor London Breed said in August the city must bring back the indoor mask mandate. Only very few people can go without a mask indoors. Our lives depend on it, y’all!
Weird. On Thursday, Breed partied her heart out at Black Cat nightclub with BLM co-founder Alicia Garza. Neither one wore masks.
It looks like no one wore a mask.

San Francisco Chronicle reporter Mariecar Mendoza happened to be at the concert, too. Did she hold Breed accountable?
Of course not. Mendoza’s article had a forgiving tone. I guess it’s because two of the three original members of Tony! Toni! Toné! treated them to an impromptu performance.
“The fact that we have not been able to enjoy live music in this way since the beginning of this pandemic made it even that much more special and extraordinary,” Breed told The Chronicle after the performance. “I was really honored and really in disbelief when I sat here and watched what I felt was history in the making.”
Most patrons inside the subterranean venue, which serves food and drinks, did not wear a mask as mandated by the city of San Francisco. According to the citywide mandate Breed announced in August, the health department requires that everyone wear a well-fitted mask in indoor public buildings even if they are fully vaccinated against COVID-19, except while actively eating or drinking.
Don’t worry. Breed undergoes regular COVID testing, you guys:
Breed emphasized, however, that she tests for COVID-19 often and said “at the end of the day, everyone who comes in here has to show proof of vaccination. That gives me a lot of reassurance.”
“I’ve been very careful, not just because I want to set an example but because I don’t want to get COVID. I also want to make sure that I’m not someone transmitting COVID to other people,” she said. “This entire pandemic has been focused on keeping people safe.”
Then Mendoza dived into Raphael Saadiq and D’Wayne Wiggins’s successful music careers with the group and after the group disbanded.
The comments on the article tear apart Breed for ignoring the mask mandate of her city.
The stupid rules, mandates, and lockdowns continue to destroy small businesses.
NBC Bay Area spoke to one rightfully enraged business owner:
“She’s been very clear that everybody needs to do their part, we’re not out of the woods. San Francisco’s rules have been very restrictive, and I don’t see her playing her part in that photo,” said Danielle Rabkin, Crossfit Golden Gate Gym Owner.
Among those exceptions are actively eating or drinking in a club, bar or restaurant — so the photo – touched a nerve for Rabkin.
“She clearly feels like it’s fine and safe to remove her mask then let that be the rule for everybody,” said the gym owner. “You’re not impervious to COVID any more than I am, so let the rules for you be the same as the rules for me.”
Rabkin said her customers have had to deal with the mandate for more than a month now. Her biggest frustration is a lack of information about when the mandate will be lifted, especially since San Francisco has a very high vaccination rate.
