Our freedoms are slowly being taken
The comments section proves why this is a HORRIBLE idea. People speaking out against the new feature because it can easily be abused are already being condemned as racist -
"why is everyone so mad about this? if the business isn’t racist, they won’t have to worry about this. yes, this can be abused, like many other policies in our society, but it’s better to be safe than sorry, no? why are y’all about them combating RACISM??"
"Love how racists are self identifying in this thread."
"why are white people offended about this this is a great idea now i can support buisnesses that arent hateful"
"I don’t get the hate over this. this seems useful. It allows POC to avoid potentially dangerous situations & part of it is preventing onslaughts of bad “media fueled” i.e. the cancel culture everyone is so up in arms about... I wish ppl knew how to read articles before talking"
"This is absolutely amazing!! Racist establishments should be rightfully labeled and avoided. We must no longer allow racism to continue and let racist people hide behind a facade."
Who gets to define racist, hateful, fascist, dangerous? The complaint can be any of the following -
1. A real situation.
2. A 'feeling' or biased perception [waitperson didn't seem friendly enough, employees should be more diverse].
3. A political difference of opinion. Some hysterical leftists claim/believe Trump supporters are racist, which is absolute garbage, but if that's their 'opinion', they can turn this into a complaint.
4. A completely contrived false accusation for revenge, attention, lawsuit lottery.
Accusations of racism appear in the news all the time, so who over at Yelp is going to fact check/corroborate every news story -
A political scientist found that fewer than 1 in 3 of 346 such allegations was genuine.www.wsj.com
Once again, either shut up and get in line with the left or have your business destroyed by the new Yelp label... because anti-fascism, right? I've deleted Yelp from all my devices.
Nope. I stopped using Yelp years ago when I learned they were in the business of taking money from people to remove fake reviews, sometimes ones they made; blocking my positive reviews, and blocking my negative reviews. It's not a review site if it's almost all fake. Gave up trying to warn people about it around 2015. Can't believe it's still being used.does anyone use yelp?
whatever businesses are left off the racist list can simply be added by the conservatives to make everyone racist. we can all shop nowhere.
I don't agree with you completely. We were free at the Garden of Eden. We were nearly free after America's Independence, but Freedom was never fully realized there.We were never free.
Banned me in 2008/9. 16,000,000 views; if you went to google and searched, "Christmas is Pagan" my web page and TheirTube page was at the top, #1 spot. Not kidding. A small group of us warned the biggest of the big TheirTubers back then that they were next if they let us up and comers / "B Tubers" go quietly into the night. They stood silent.Censorship: We're HUCKED! YT Dumps Many Channels, Social Media Giants Censor MSM; HELLO, AMERICANS?
