Uber is going to fight discrimination … by banning people?

Good news! Uber is on top of the white supremacist situation and wants to make sure the “Uber community” stays safe. Their method for safety? Banning people from the app.

On Friday’s “The Morning Blaze with Doc Thompson,” Doc Thompson and the guys read Uber’s statement and tried to figure out how they’ll know when people are hateful enough to be banned.

“I know you were a little concerned in regards to Charlottesville whether or not Uber was going to step up,” Doc said sarcastically. “I got the email.”

“As the country braces for more white supremacist demonstrations, we wanted to let you know what we are doing for the Uber community,” Uber said in an email statement responding to Charlottesville. “We will act swiftly and decisively to uphold our Community Guidelines, including our policy against discrimination of any kind—that includes banning people from the app.”

Doc wondered if maybe a rider saying “I need a van big enough for a burning cross” will be a red flag.

“I don’t know about you, but I feel safer,” Kris Cruz said.

To see more from Doc, visit his channel on TheBlaze and listen live to “The Morning Blaze with Doc Thompson” weekdays 6–9 a.m. ET, only on TheBlaze Radio Network.
