DISCRIMINATION ON THE BASIS OF CLOTHING OR CLUB MEMBERSHIP IS ILLEGAL
The Massachusetts Civil Rights Act General Laws chapter 12, section III,
provides that "Any person whose exercise or enjoyment. of rights
secured by the Constitution or laws of the United States, or of rights
secured by the United States, or of rights secured by the Constitution
or laws of the commonwealth, has been interfered with, may institute and
prosecute a civil action for injunctive and other appropriate equitable
relief, including the award of compensatory monetary damages." Additionally,
General Laws, chapter 272, section 92A makes it illegal for any tavern
or restaurant to display any sign or notice which discriminates against
persons of any class in the full enjoyment of the accommodations offered
to the general public by such taverns or restaurants. In the case of Cohen
v. California 403 U.S. 15 (1971), the Supreme Court ruled 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, is protected under the Massachusetts Civil Rights Act,
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.
All money from will go directly toward fighting adverse motorcycle legislation.
