Does New 10% Tanning Tax Discriminate Against Whites?
I don’t know if anybody has thought about this or not but, This new 10% tanning tax is predominantly imposed on Caucasians only. I am not going to say that no other race uses tanning salons but I will say that more than likely 90-95% of tanning customers are white. Blacks and Hispanics for example don’t have much of a reason to use tanning services.
So what this amounts to is a tax that puts a “disparate impact” on Caucasians and the Supreme Court already ruled that this counts as discrimination (Briggs vs. Duke Power Co.)
Anyways, food for thought
