The following article, Uber Eats Offers Free Delivery Until End of Year — But Only to Black-Owned Businesses, was first published on Flag And Cross.
Equality means everything (and everyone) is on an even playing field. It doesn’t mean offering some services to a select group of people and not others.
That is the exact opposite of equality.
A lot of people still don’t get that.
From Fox News:
Uber said it will make changes to its ride-hailing app and Uber Eats delivery service to support black-owned businesses.
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.
Here’s more COVID-19 randomness, via Twitter…
