    Interestingly enough, There was a recent study done that shows BLM protests actually does not lead to coronavirus (2 studies, and the parameters are rather vague so take it with a grain of salt)...

    The fact that a large population of People dont want to go has staved off the spread of the virus at the rallies :confused:o_O.

    So does activism confer immunity or something? I don't believe this for a minute. CovID don't ask who you are. CovID don't care.

    The study seems to indicate that the people who have covid are not the ones attending the protests.

    ... I would have to see quite a few studies with valid research and data To believe this drivel.

    Nope, I have not. I never knew when they were going to happen so I had no way of attending them.

    Now with social media, I still didn't attend because of the corona and police brutality. I don't have the proper equipment.

    I went to my first protest last year at age 62. It was Greta's Thunberg's climate strike rally in NYC. I went with 3 others, 2 of them also Aspies. I didn't even think about the crowds and noise being problematic for the 3 of us and we seemed fine with it. I wasn't aware of ND and the growing ASD community until Greta's positive attitude about being an Aspie prompted me to look into what was going on. I have known that I'm an Aspie since I was in college.
