I was wondering how long it would take before SJW rhetoric would find its way into the Uber versus Yellow, or as we St. Louisans would say, Uber versus Laclede, struggle.
Which begs a couple of questions:
(1) What’s bad for the goose is also bad for the gander, and MUH DISPUT IMPAK applies to Uber, then why isn’t anyone saying that Yellow and Laclede drivers shouldn’t have to get them?
(2) Eric Holder, who is doing PR on behalf of Uber, states that running prints for employment situations other than law enforcement is discriminatory and MUH DISPUT IMPAK. Okay, I’ll say it again: What’s bad for the goose is bad for the gander. So why should those who apply for LEA/LEO jobs have to undergo fingerprint checks? After all, ZOMG NOT ENUFF BLAK COPS LOL~!!!!!1, and this would be an ideal way to break down a barrier.
We all know that they’re not going to drop the fingerprint requirements for Yellow and Laclede cab drivers and for LEOs. It’s just that race is a convenient bludgeon for one side to use against the other in a fight that has nothing to do with race, because race is clickbaity. To wit: Mizzou. If you’re in the buggy making business, and you don’t want those newfangled horseless carriages eating into your business, you better find some way to SJWize your business or do the polar opposite to theirs.
