Uber Sued for Alleged Racial Bias in Its Rating System



A federal lawsuit filed on behalf of nonwhite drivers in the U.S. accused ride-hailing service Uber of racial discrimination, a media report says.

Shares of Uber Technologies at last check were down 4.3% to $35.16.

The San Francisco company is in violation of the U.S. Civil Rights Act for terminating the services of drivers of color based on their customer ratings, the lawsuit, filed in federal court in San Francisco says, according to a Bloomberg report. 

“Uber is aware that passengers are prone to discriminate in their evaluation of drivers, but Uber has continued to use this system, thus making it liable for intentional race discrimination,” the former driver, Thomas Liu, said in the complaint.
