No, you just have to not be a douchebag..ie get in the car and shut your mouth about the race/creed/religion of the driver, and get driven to your destination..it's really simple.


Will you allow people to express themselves before or after they get a ride?



Still having trouble with this topic?


Not at all.

You guys won this one!

I give up.

Just working to figure out if I'm liberal enough to ever ride on Uber.

Would hate to get stranded at the airport.


Politics had nothing to do with this issue.

It's about someone being an abusive prick to their employees.

Why you can't seem to get that is beyond me.

Well, you get it I think, but your political partisanship compels you to be dishonest.

There are many precious snowflakes these days that think people should put up with their bull# or else.

Shocking how many ATSers support the thought police.

Maybe you should distinguish a racist from a racist action. A pedophile from a child pornographer, etc.

Being a racist isn't a crime, nor can it be against a public service providers policy. Uber needs to realize what they are. Get with the times. Walmart is a public place. So is a taxi cab.

But nope, like somone else eluded to, you will be banned from grocery stores for thinking and voting wrong, if America keeps getting drilled into the pavement by our evil-doing leaders (the Synagogue of Satan who purposely destroys society via proxies).

The homebrew crowd sourced veneer on society isn't fooling anyone.. Play by the rules. This is America, you can think whatever you want, and express it on your own time, freely.

Do you find it reasonable for Uber to provide her with a non-Muslim driver in NYC?

Nope, being a racist isn't a crime, but that doesn't mean that a majority of people find it repugnant, ignorant, regressive and backwards behavior.

Glad Uber doesn't control grocery stores, or this lady would starve. Isn't the all knowing tech giants a great idea?


Let her hateful ass walk. I hope Lyft follows up and bans her too. Maybe she can wait for an bigot-based ride-sharing company to start up like "Racing Racists" or something like that and she can ride all she wants.


Freedom of speech is absolute. And dabbling in this issue os dangerous and I think is a civil rights law suit waiting to happen.

This loud mouth may have just won the lottery.


Freedom of speech applies to the government restricting speech. Uber is not the government last time I checked. If you're curious about the constitution and law, why don't you read a wikipedia article at least. There's no law prohibiting a private ride sharing corporation from banning racists from its vehicles.

The situation you describe is a personal upclose and personal interaction.

Uber as a corp has dipped it's toe into curtailing free speech by punishing a person who they disagree with. This is indeed very dangerous ground they are standing on.

Not everyone can recognize this.



Not everyone thinks that Uber is governmental entity like you. Have you read the first amendment or do you just get summaries of the constitution from Fox News?

What exact tweet is the one that broke the camels back and got her banned?


I see what you did there! Lol, it was probably the one where she wouldn't hump a gay Muslim couple after baking them a cake??? Why is this thread being compared to the wedding cake situation? This lady was banned because she was a public jerk and insulted employees for no real reason other than HER bigotry....this isn't wrong on uber, they are taking a stand on conduct towards their employees

Ain't thought that is the problem.

It's actions.

You know, like her act of naming Lyft and Uber and being insulting and rude on a public platform towards their employees.

That's an act, not a thought.

Go try yelling at a bartender some time and see how long it takes to get your ass kicked out.

Well. In my experience with this life, that this reality has granted to me, determining what faith someone is can be garnered through different ways. How someone dresses can be an indication of someone's faith. If someone can understand languages and do some geography to determine where each specific dialect of that language was located in Muslim controlled countries, they could determine with great accuracy what belief system they would more likely associated with. 
Just asking them is the best way to be certain though. 

I don't know how she determined it. There are many different ways to determine it. That is a good question none-the-less. We need more information before you or me can determine the answer to it. 


Lmao, you're kidding me right?

I thought that was racial profiling. Like my hypothetical Mexican worker scenario?

Since many Latinos speak Spanish and catholicism is the majority religion, you've basically done the exact same thing you accuse me of.





Well then please stop acting Curt.(Kirk). And that is how you put an Star Trek reference into this conversation. 


Nope I used the word coy for a reason, I wasn't alluding to some sci-fi show.




Ok. Got it. Well in your hypothetical scenario, which you have stated that it was not his ethnicity that was the reason he was not hired


I stated it was his ethnicity.




then I would say the statistical chance that it being because of his religion would be very low. I would bet it would be the back ground check. Depending on the type of job, it could be his education. You can put any ethnicity into that hypothetical scenario and it would work out just the same. I view it as irrelevant to the OP. 


I already stated that the Mexican was not hired due to his assumed ethnicity, I was alluding to why such an assumption would be made and why the refusal of hiring certain demographics is a no-go for the employer.

It's fairly simple stuff, I was alluding to prejudice.



I agree. Try harder next time. Some of us might not be as enlightened as you. In order to teach you must first learn. 


Yeah... Funny it's you who has not once but twice twisted my hypothetical scenario, that a child could understand. But each to their own. I know full well you understand the point I was making.



Protected from what? Ridicule? That would be an awesome protection to have, but I am afraid all fall to ridicule. If one cannot handle ridicule of their belief's without wanting vengeance of some kind, then his belief's become futile, and insolent. Are you saying it would be better if ridicule of someone's else's beliefs was illegal? 


Purposefully acting dense huh?

OK.

I'm not talking about ridicule. I'll try to make this simple.

A protected characteristic, a part of a person's character that is protected by law against certain scenarios.

For instance, refusal to serve someone based upon skin colour, sexual orientation, religion, disability. Plus many others.

Segregation is over fella, as far as I'm aware the US legally doesn't have 2nd class citizens.




The Christian cake baker didn't have protected class citizenship when he wanted to refuse service? Do you deny that? 


Irrelevant, the Christian Baker refused to bake because of the sexual practices of the potential customers. A person does not have the right to refuse service based upon the sexual orientation of a customer.

To give such protection would be to label certain people as "lesser" due to their inability to acquire services that others with different characteristics can acquire.

Ever heard of equality?

I hear it's all the rage with western societies. Like laws and that have been made buddy... I kid ya not.




It would depend on whether that faith believed it is okay to kill someone if you think they offended you. In that situation you don't need to be highly intelligent to understand how that could be concerning to another culture.


I expected such bs. Smh.

Look, your political convictions may have you thinking like that, it's just a reflection of you. But as far as I'm concerned laws exist.

Statistically speaking the chances of me being murdered by a religious nut job are extremely low.

You can hold to your beliefs that all Muslims want to kill me, especially if I offend them. But the reality is this.

You are xenophobic.

The majority of Muslims, no. The majority of people don't want to kill other people. Out of the thousands of people I've met in my life only 3 have been murdered, low and behold! None of the murderers were Muslim, they were white.

Even then religion doesn't play into a court's decision upon finding a murderer guilty. Even if religion was the inspiration for the killing.

We have like, laws and stuff? None of them are theocratic in nature.

What a load of crap.




I have noticed liberals are not usually in tune with these realities. 


My psychic religion detector is broken? Gosh darn it, no wonder I'm not prejudiced against a person's faith. That sucks.




It is why they insist on equality for all and strive for it...the rest know those are unimportant issues. 


I strive for equality for all because all people are equal before the law. I have a small understanding of history, when I think of the Nazis Germany and how people profited from prejudice against store owners because they were Jewish my stomach turns. When I think of the Salem witch trials and how people testified because they didn't like the victim, I feel saddened.

Equality is hardly an unimportant issue.

These people were not equal, before the law or before their peers. You might think it's cool for people not to be equal but the fact remains that people like me will at least try to defend your human rights if before the law you were wrongfully prejudiced against and made unequal to others.




Difference is built in...leftists appear to try everything in the world to make us all accept the same things one way which is entirely never going to happen. 



More nonsense.

Humans are immensely diverse, you can assume someones identity all you want. There's no such thing as accepting something "one way" you either accept it or you don't.

The kicker is this though, we have laws to ensure humans are equal before the law, we have laws (universal ones) that ensure rights for humans.



Sounds like foolish martyrdom to be honest.


How come?

I am afraid you are wrong. We were talking about how to determine one's faith without asking them. I answered how it could be done. No need for racism at all. You are the one that keeps making it about race, when it doesn't have to be.




Irrelevant, the Christian Baker refused to bake because of the sexual practices of the potential customers


Practices which he is forbidden to take part it. Hardly irrelevant if you claim that Faith is a protected class, but only for some of the Faiths. Either Faith is a protected class for all or it is not a protected class at all.



To give such protection would be to label certain people as "lesser" due to their inability to acquire services that others with different characteristics can acquire.


Yeah. Just like Uber did.




Ever heard of equality?


Equality - the state of being equal, especially in status, rights, and opportunities. If one company has the right to refuse service to a client for reason they disagree about, then all companies should enjoy that right. That would be equality. What definition are you using?





I expected such bs. Smh


Oh I am sure you think it is bs. Are you saying that there are no Islamic terrorists, that are causing death in different countries around the world? Now that would be bs.




Look, your political convictions may have you thinking like that, it's just a reflection of you. But as far as I'm concerned laws exist.


It is not a political conviction that makes me think like that. My reflections come from what I observe. Just like you. To deny that what I say I am observing is not true is only a political conviction you can't seem to get past.




Statistically speaking the chances of me being murdered by a religious nut job are extremely low.


That would depend on what country you live in. Statistically speaking those chances greatly increase when you live by a religious nut job.




You can hold to your beliefs that all Muslims want to kill me, especially if I offend them. But the reality is this. You are xenophobic.


Using intellectual dishonesty by claiming I stated that all Muslims want to kill you is another form of bs you should also shake your head at. I never said that. You did. Do you think that their are no religious nut jobs that are within the Muslim Faith? Is so, your political conviction is once again blinding you to the fact that there is.




You are xenophobic.


No. Wrong again. I do not fear what is happening. I am just explaining it to you. I have some deeper thoughts about the Muslim Faith that would intertwine to a few other Faiths.




The majority of Muslims, no. The majority of people don't want to kill other people. Out of the thousands of people I've met in my life only 3 have been murdered, low and behold! None of the murderers were Muslim, they were white.


You mistaking your experience to be the only experience. Many have experienced an all together different version. Time and place is everything.




Even then religion doesn't play into a court's decision upon finding a murderer guilty. Even if religion was the inspiration for the killing.


In many countries religion does play a vital role in determining how a legal matter is handled.




We have like, laws and stuff? None of them are theocratic in nature.


Time and Place is everything.

You just paid a stranger cash to take you somewhere who happened to also drive for Uber. For example, while I worked for Uber, I didn't make my daughter download the app to drop her off at school, lol. She was't taking an Uber, she was getting a ride from mom.
