Under the guise of “diversity,” Amazon is offering a $10,000 bonus to its delivery service partners — but only for those partners who are black, Latino, or Native American. Asian Americans and whites are categorically ineligible for this racially discriminatory stipend. This is a flagrant violation of the Civil Rights Act of 1866, which guarantees citizens of every race and color the same right to make and enter into contracts with others.
AFL filed a federal class-action lawsuit against Amazon seeking to halt its use of the racially discriminatory program.
The case is currently pending in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas.
