Uber, Lyft, DC restaurants to ban 'Unite the Right' rally participants;

Refusing service on the basis of not liking someone‘s affiliations. Interesting precedent.

White supremacists and white nationalists heading to Washington, D.C., for Sunday’s second Unite the Right rally may have trouble finding a way to get there or a place to eat, according to reports.

In preparation for the rally near the White House, Uber and Lyft told drivers they have a right to kick a passenger out of car if they are harassed or threatened, The Washington Post reported.

At the same time, the Restaurant Association of Metropolitan Washington sent out a toolkit informing restaurateurs of their legal rights to refuse service to white nationalists and other political fringe groups, The Washingtonian reported.

Uber
recently sent a message to its drivers in the Washington region, reminding them of community guidelines — and eject a fare who is harassing or threatening, The Post reported.

“Regardless of event, drivers are advised to follow all local laws but have the right to refuse service to riders who are disrespectful or who make them feel unsafe,” the message from Uber said.

Lyft drivers received similar instructions, the paper reported

The Washingtonian interviewed several restaurant owners who said they are threatening to refuse service to those participating in the rally--or planning to close altogether.

“Our mentality is we’re going to protect each other. This is our city. Our house. Our people,” Founding Farmers owner Dan Simons told the magazine.

“There are times when a guest can be rude to an employee and you swap out the server. We’ve told our team: this isn’t what that is. You don’t have to be in a room with someone who’s advocating for your death and enslavement," he added.


Ellen Kassoff Gray, owner of Equinox restaurant near the White House, also said she would refuse to serve those who espouse hate.

“I’ll proudly stay open and serve those who’re respectful and kind. But being a Jewish restaurant owner and having a pro-Nazi group come to town, would I refuse service? Yes, I would,” Kassoff Gray told The Washingtonian.

Works for the NYTimes too, I think. The Wall Street Journal is a tougher nut to crack. If anyone has a tip for that one, I'd like to hear it.

Trick? It’s a hidden extended preview option.

I can see if the people are acting threatening or rude but not if they're doing it 'cuz their "white" under current law.
Who said anything about refusing service because they are white?
