Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp is leading the way for reducing social-distancing restrictions amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Including from Celtics wing Jaylen Brown, a Georgia native.

Brown is intelligent and holds interests beyond basketball. He wrote thoughtfully on coronavirus and race for The Guardian.
There are legitimate reasons to be skeptical of Kemp’s plan.
But shutting down the economy also has consequences. People need money to support themselves and their families.
Brown’s advice is good for people privileged enough to follow it. We should continue to socially distance as much as reasonably possible. But what’s reasonable varies for different people, and some people need to work.
