DISCRIMINATION ON THE BASIS OF CLOTHING OR CLUB MEMBERSHIP IS ILLEGAL
The Missouri Human Rights Act states that all persons within the jurisdiction of the state of Missouri are free and equal and shall be entitled to the full and equal use and enjoyment within the state of any place of public accommodation without discrimination or segregation on the grounds of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, ancestry, or handicap. RSMO 5213.065. Places of public accommodation is defined as “all places or businesses offering or holding out to the general public, good, services, privileges, facilities, advantages or accommodations for the peace, comfort, health, welfare and safety of the general public or such public places providing food, shelter, recreation and amusement….” RSMO 213.010(11). Any person whose exercise or enjoyment of rights secured by the Constitution or laws of the United States has been interfered with or attempted to be interfered with may bring a complaint to the Missouri Commission on Human Rights. The Supreme Court ruled in the case of Cohen vs.. California, 403 U.S. 15 (1971), that individuals have the constitutional right under the First Amendment to wear clothing which displays writing or designs. In addition, the right of an individual to freedom of association has long been recognized and protected by the United States Supreme Court. Thus, a person’s right to wear the clothing of his choice, as well as his right to belong to any club or organization of his choice, is constitutionally protected, and persons or establishments who discriminate on the basis of clothing or club membership are subject to lawsuit.
Don’t subject yourself to civil and criminal penalties and to expensive and time consuming lawsuits. Don’t discriminate against people wearing colors or motorcycle attire.
