    Generally, I bet, most people don't go into places that don't want them there. I wouldn't go to a black barber shop and test it out.

    Oh hell no I wouldn't either.

    Just so you know, if I go into a Detroit barber shop and say, "Cut my hair, nigger", I expect you to file an anti-discrimination suit on my behalf...after you deliver my eulogy.

    If the decision not to provide the service was based on your race then you have a case.

    100% factually false as proven by all the links in this thread including the one you posted.

    Somehow, you still dont see that by denying them a service that was offered to all others, they were treating them like 2nd class citizens. I doubt you ever will.

    The legal repercussions for the bakery owner were minor. I cant help public reaction. It seems like an over-reaction to me but that is not the gay couple's or the court's fault.
    That is absolutely false. Unless there was a door marked "colored" a Black person was not allowed entry into that establishment. Public bathrooms the same. If there wasn't one marked "colored" they were out of luck!





    And somehow you just don't get the idea that a man not wanting to violate his religious beliefs is his right to deny something that does just that.

    hmmm yeah i havent really been keeping track but yes i doubt they are all personal bigots myself they just want to empower bigotry, discrimination and or unequal treatment and rights infringements

    i personal can not nor could i ever want to empower those things, its the exact opposite of civility and what this country at least tries to do, takes us a while though lol

    nope if he denies you based on race then just like the baker he is a criminal too and broke the law. Basic facts and low 101

    you wouldn't be denied service based on illegal discrimination so theres nothing to file
    youd probably win a Darwin award though

    I dont believe that any barber, regardless of color, can deny you a haircut because you are white. Race is a protected class.
