Anti-Discrimination Law

DISCRIMINATION ON THE BASIS OF CLOTHING OR CLUB MEMBERSHIP IS ILLEGAL

The purpose of the Oklahoma Human Rights Commission is “to work toward removing friction, eliminating discrimination and promoting unity and understanding among all the people of Oklahoma”. It is specifically charged to “alone and in cooperation with other organizations and agencies, public and private, discourage discrimination and encourage fair treatment of all persons regardless of race, color, creed, national origin, age, handicap or ancestry”. 74 Okla.. Statutes Sec 953.

The State policy of Oklahoma realizes that to advance the general welfare of the State of Oklahoma, all citizens must be given the opportunity to reach their full potential and has therefore declared that any inhibiting condition caused by racial, ethnic, or religious factors, are matters of concern to the State Government, which threaten the rights and privileges of all the citizens, and the institutions of a free and democratic society. 30 Okla. Statutes Sec. 951.

Any person whose exercise or enjoyment of rights secured by the Constitution or Laws of the United States of America, has been interfered with or attempted to be interfered with, may bring a complaint to the Oklahoma Human Rights Commission, as well as file a civil lawsuit.

The United States 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 to 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, it 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.
