Virtue Signaling Uber Exec Turns the World Upside Down… UberEats Intending to Fight Racism… Invokes Racist Policy

Virtue signaling CEO’s like Uber boss Dara Khosrowshahi are falling all over themselves to prove they’re not racists.  In the case of UberEats, Khosrowshahi’s wokeness actually led her to invoke a blatantly racist policy where none had previously existed.

That’s right.  Uber replaced an equality-based system with one that is racially biased… You can’t make this stuff up.

(NY Post) In an email to customers late Thursday, CEO Dara Khosrowshahi said Uber Eats will promote black-owned restaurants on its app, and that the service will not charge delivery fees to those restaurants “for the remainder of the year.”

Uber will also offer discounted rides to black-owned small businesses “who have been hit hard by COVID-19,” though it did not add how much of a discount would be given.

The obvious question is what if some CEO offered a similar arrangement to white-owned businesses only?  Or to Asian-owned restaurants, or restaurants owned by Hispanics, Indians, Jews, or any other ethnic group.  

We won’t go there.  There’s enough to hang UberEats and Khosrowshahi elsewhere…

Uber Technologies promised to donate $1 million to the Equal Justice Initiative and the Center for Policing Equity. 

Khosrowshahi released a statement saying, “We know this isn’t enough. It won’t be enough until we see true racial justice.”  

According to Attorney Harmeet Dhillonto, Uber Eat’s promotion violates California’s Unruh Act, which outlaws discrimination based on race, color, sex, disability, and other personal factors.
