Check out my piece about Yelp’s new “racist business” initiative on The American Spectator:
As if woke capital hasn’t made life in America dangerous enough for those slightly to the left of center, popular internet review website Yelp has taken it upon itself to allow users to report “racist behavior” on the part of a business. Called the Business Accused of Racist Behavior Alert, Yelp’s own blog states that the process begins with a milder Public Attention Alert “to inform consumers if someone associated with the business was accused of, or the target of, racist behavior.” It only gets escalated to a BARBA (my term) when there is “resounding evidence” of “egregious, racist actions from a business owner of employee.” Such behavior includes overtly racist slurs or symbols.” Don’t fret, though: the alert “will always link to a news article from a credible media outlet so users can learn more.” Of course, to date there has been no definition of “racist,” “resounding evidence,” “egregious, racist actions,” or “credible media outlet.”
