    Kind of, yes. But those are based more upon private contract more so than government force.

    They shouldn't have to. Why should a black person not be allowed to drink out of a drinking fountain that a white person can? Why can't a black person sit at the front of the bus?

    Sorry...but our society has values and has a right to those values and one of those values is that if someone opens a business they cannot exlude black because they don't like them or Mexicans, or Women or Asians or gays...... It really isn't that god damned tough. You know the rules....either follow them or don't open a business. It really IS that simple.

    Anti-discrimination laws are HARDLY utter subjugation and oppression. That is drama queen talk.

    Public transport is different than private business and you know it.

    Our society was based on freedom, not complete and unquestioning servitude to the State.

    I am more concerned with my employer ****ing up my weekend plans than the fact that the government dare have regulations. In fact, many of the things we force businesses to spend there time on are quite good since I like safe food.

    Nor would allowing the exercise of property and labor rights delve us into chaos as you suggested. Don't think you get to drama queen it up and then prevent others from doing the same.

    End result, you want government force against the free exercise of rights and I do not.

    Government is always more dangerous than a private employer.

    Oh...I see. You have no problem with "White Only" lunch counters...but you do with requiring blacks to sit in the back of the bus. Don't exactly understand the logic there...but I gotcha.

    If it's private business, then White Only could be something an idiot tries to institute. I'd expect people to have the intelligence and dignity to stand against it. Public, government, absolutely cannot discriminate.
