Discrimination Suit Filed Against Tan Tax

The law firm of Dewey, Cheatem & Howe have filed the discrimination lawsuit on behave of their clients Cedric Blackburn, Amos Gray and Abasi Whitehouser. 
The lawsuit came about because of the just passed Health bill. The 10 percent tax on indoor tanning treatments, part of the Senate bill, is scheduled to take effect July 1.
The lawsuit claims on constitutional ground it be declared biased based on color of the skin.
After months of fighting against a tax on indoor tanning, tanning-salon operators now must accept the additional cost.

"We expect it to have negative effect on the industry," said Barney Cancerton, president of Tanner USA, one of the largest tanning chains in Florida, with 25 salons in the state and almost 1,000 tanning beds.

Client Abasi Whitehouser said "shouldn’t there also be a 10% rap music tax to even things out."

"I have a dream that my 10 little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character."

Justice Department spokesman Deshawna Jackson told the paper that the Justice Department feels the lawsuit "has no merit."
