He’s being charged with not accepting a job?! What happened to we reserve the right to refuse service to anybody?
Apparently that doesn’t apply if the offended party is a protected class.
He is guilty of what Orwell called “thoughtcrime.” That’s the state of things today.
Gone with the Civil Rights Act back in the 1960s.
That died in 1965.
That went out with the movie “GIANT”.
You still can do that, but in many cases you'd better not say a peep about why.
In my experience, folks tend to give way too much information when they're turning something down. There's a felt need to say something that manifestly justifies you saying, "No," or "Sorry, I can't."
So, the photographer says, "I can't do that, because...", the would-be customer is offended at the "because", and the rest will be a matter of public record. Stopping immediately prior to the "because" is most HIGHLY recommended in these perilous times.
That went away with people of “protected minorities”.
I was just thinking they should have posted in their window, “We refuse the right to refuse service.”
What a sham.
