Are you an Uber customer?
The company is forcing users of their service to take one minute and think about gun violence before booking a ride.
When users open the app they see a message that reads: “our hearts go out to the victims of this week’s terrible gun violence.”
“As we move around our cities this weekend, let’s take a moment to think about what we can do to help,” the message preached.
Uber’s message follows the murder of five Dallas law enforcement officers at the hands of a black racial supremacist at a rally. Seven others were wounded in the massacre.
The app also turned its Uber icons into peace symbols.
This is exactly the type of thing I expect from smug, self-righteous, millennial tech millionaires.
Uber users also posted an image of a message that said the company will be making donations to “a number of social justice and anti-violence non-profits in Baton Rouge, Minneapolis, and Dallas.”
If you don’t want your transportation dollars going to a “social justice” organization, it’s time to rethink how you chose to travel. Perhaps consider Lyft, or just use a taxicab.
Uber is an well-known anti-Second Amendment company prohibiting its drivers and passengers from possessing a firearm while using the service.
