tell me again, where in the anti-discrimination laws could this restaurant have refused service?


Anti-discrimination laws protect people from discrimination based on race, color, religion, gender, or national origin, etc. SOME states (and some cities) have added "sexual orientation" to that list. Texas has not. Neither is "bikers" on that list. They are free to discriminate.

If a business owner is afraid that a gang of bikers may cause trouble, he most certainly can discriminate against them. Especially in Texas.

Seriously.. there ARE legitimate reasons to discriminate... there are reasons to say no we will not serve you.. that the law simply does not take into account, such as groups under investigation by ATF and the feds..


There are legitimate reasons to discriminate and the law DOES take that into account. A business can legally discriminate against bikers. You are mistaken about the law.

The other anti-discrimination cases we've heard about center around gay people being discriminated against. The law in many states and cities does not see "being gay" as a legitimate reason to discriminate, and they change their law to reflect that. But any business can discriminate against an individual or group of people that they think might cause trouble. That's legitimate. Bikers are not protected.

Warning: The word "irony" is not used correctly in this post ...

Does anyone else see the irony in the Waco police telling a restaurant that they should do more to prevent crime?

Sense would dictate that if you allow one club into your bar, you don't allow others unless they're known friendlies of the club already there.

It only takes one idiot to start things off and no one can back down once it kicks off.

I don't know how effective that refusal of service would be. What's to stop the Bandidos from taking a page from the social justice warriors and sending their Hispanic and Black members to be refused service and then filling a discrimination lawsuit? I know for a fact that the big four OMCs have some serious corporate lawyers. They can threaten in both illegal and legal ways.

Generally the cops enforce such segregation at big meets like Daytona and so forth. Can't see them not making a public safety case for it outside of the big rallies

Some of those customers should have shown better judgement. You pull up to a restaurant, you see row after row of bikes and people with different patches and colors, You Go The Other Way. "Thanks anyway, no that hungry, I'll go on down the road"

Intimidated? No. Just common sense takes over and tells you bad things are probably going to happen and you don't want to be in the middle.
