These discussions have become very partisan recently. I blame the guys on the other side.
I completely disagree with you, in fact your post is unscientific and lacks any evidence to back it up. Are you an expert in conflict resolution or something? If you have no relevant qualifications then don't comment. Myself I watched the Monty Python argument sketch several times so I know what I am talking about.
I'm starting to get a bit upset with "white people" because I don't want to see mass blame or hysteria. The racism is fully against us, even though there's a fair share of locals in "their neighborhood" not wearing masks. Signs going up everywhere in my areas, only in English. Very clearly targeted to a certain demographic. So, I really wonder why the "foreigners" (who have maybe even been in HK longer than some ethnically Chinese people) can't play along to help minimize the damage and racism this is causing. I also am surprised they are not changing their behavior faster due to what we're seeing in "the west".
But I'll say something uncomfortable... I never, ever wore a mask for my many years here until recently. It was an uncomfortable experience that made me feel awkward. To be honest, it reminded me of wearing feminine hygiene products for the first time. I really felt horrified by wearing them. I've accepted it now.
I think Hong Kongers may need to accept that this is simply too big of a cultural shift to expect to happen overnight. I think they don't quite realize how utterly foreign it is to those of us who never knew the public to wear them.
Very few will accept this right now.
Big deal wear mask #staythefuckhome no one cares how it makes you feel.
Think I'm in love with fucking masks? Stop masking excuses.
And remember, it's same people that say home quarantine for the returning kids is safe.
This is not true, lots of quarantine hotels are pretty full.
My colleague booked quarantine hotel room for her sister whom returned from UK to keep everyone safe. And, he mentioned the hotel he booked is fulled for Apr.
