This tweet mimics dozens of others found from Breitbart and other right-wing media outlets and whimsical conservative personas. All of the tweets fail to explain Yelp’s process of identifying and labeling the suspect businesses. Indeed, the only way a business can end up with the mark is “when there’s resounding evidence of egregious, racist actions from a business owner or employee.” If you’re a racist or employ racists, this move certainly isn’t cause for celebration. But for most business owners and definitely Black travelers and consumers, the move is welcome.
Yelp went from helping diners find food, to destroying businesses. if a place is accused of racism, Yelp will put out a “public attention” alert. Yelp has just sanctioned and amplified smears. Screw them. https://t.co/ZyQfZDDzW4— GregGutfeld (@greggutfeld) October 10, 2020
