Quote:
would a member of a motorcycle club be considered part of a "class of people", or does "class" have a particular legal definition that limits it to the characteristics you listed earlier (race, age, ethnicity, etcetera)?
Generally, laws on profiling and discrimination focus on protected classes, which are the parentheticals you mentioned. "Motorcyclist" isn't a protected class.

Neither is "gun owner," for all the sturm and drang we see about that.
