The infraction? Sharing memes that declare vaccine mandates and vaccine passports discriminate against black and brown Americans and are, therefore "systemically racist," something the Biden administration certainly does not want them to be.
Stating that a vaccine passport is systemically racist is an idea, one which is held by a fair number of people, yet Twitter declines to allow this idea to be existing on their platform.
Twitter has, though, allowed the sharing of a New York Times article that reveals precisely what Lindsay and others who have shared these memes have announced, which is that many black Americans are suspicious of the vaccine, and withholding access to public life until such time as they get vaccinated is, in essence, withholding access to public life from black people.
The Times writes: "In interviews, Black men and women said that much of their distrust of the coronavirus vaccine was shaped by their own experiences with discrimination or their identity as Black Americans."
The memes have the look of a Black Lives Matter protest and confer a black person obviously confused at having been locked out of society due to their refusal either to undergo a medical treatment, or to prove that they have undergone said treatment.
Twitter further engaged in "shadow ban" behavior toward Lindsay's account.
Statistically, black and brown Americans are some of those most prone to be hesitant of receiving a vaccination. This means that should there be a vaccine credential needed to engage in public life, black and brown Americans would be shut out of it.
Furthermore, there has been an outcry over election integrity laws that have either passed or been proposed in over 20 states, many of which require voters to get and dispense a free voter ID to guarantee that the person casting a vote is actually the person casting a vote. These laws have been called "Jim Crow 2.0" by President Joe Biden whose administration now advocates for vaccine credentialing by businesses and employers both for customers and staff.
For Americans to be told to think that one form of ID is racist while another form of ID is not racist when the former clearly states a person's identity and the latter determines a person has experienced a medical treatment, screams cognitive dissonance.
The Biden administration has made a huge push on social media, working with influencers and mainstream media outlets to make sure the message about the importance of getting vaccinated comes across loud and clear.
