Planet Fitness does not honor their so-called mission statement. I am going to file a law suit against them for Racial Profiling. Planet Fitness purposely racially profile against black and hispanic men.
They have a big sign posted in the gym that state you can not wear "No Do-Rags, No Bandanas, No Skull-Caps, No Boots and No Jeans...All are subject to our judgment".
This statement is purposely targeted against black and hispanic men to automatically associate them with gang affliation by the wording itself. It's known as soft internal racism. When you look at this sign you would immediately associate these words with the stero-typical by society default to associate them with young black & hispanic men with gang associations.
They do not have a sign stating that "No suits, No dresses, No shoes or anything of the sort. Does this mean that someone whose dressed in so-called corporate attire can come and workout at the gym with no problem since the sign doesn't discriminate against that cultural look by Planet Fitness standards???
Below is a so-called "Mission Statement" of Planet Fitness which is totally untrue and a pure lie. I am filing a law suit on the grounds of total total racial profiling of minority men.
