COMMENT Section 1981 requires proof of intentional discrimination. Thus, there is no cause of action for disparate impact under section 1981. See, e.g., Pollard v. Wawa Food Market, 366 F. Supp. 2d 247, 252 (E.D. Pa. 2005) (concluding that disparate impact claims “are not actionable under section 1981" because section 1981 requires proof of discriminatory motive, and disparate impact claims do not).
