As a society we have decided that it is not okay for an employer to discriminate in hiring based on certain specific traits (race, color, sex, religion, national origin, from the Civil Rights Act).
But we allow and do indeed celebrate consumers discriminating. “Order from black owned businesses;” probably every Silicon Valley app has had that featured over the past few months.
I recall they made a rather indecisive ruling, but it may have been a Roberts 5-4 kind of thing.
