I have a friend who has started offering lower rates to African-Americans, as her contribution to reparations. She is a psychotherapist in private practice. My loose understanding is that civil rights protections apply to "public accommodations."
Is this kind of discrimination legal or illegal?
Some light research seems to indicate that as a health care provider, her services would be considered "public accommodations" under the Americans with Disabilities Act, but would not be included as "public accommodations" under the Civil Rights Act and therefore, her "discriminatory" pricing policy would be allowable.
