"Jeff Manning, communications director of the Oregon Department of Justice confirmed by phone interview that, 'If you are a business owner you are allowed to refuse service – you know: no shirt, no shoes, no service – it’s completely legal. Only, it’s not legal when the person being denied service is a member of a protected class.'"
How can this be applied since pretty much everyone is in a protected class? (Race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, national origin, marital status or age) According to that limitation, anyone can arrive with no shirt and no shoes and not be denied service. What does he think is "completely legal?"
