    Against their will? No one is forcing them to set up a business.
    That really has nothing to do with the individual relations of people and the desire to not provide service to them. If you must fall back on contracts that are forced on people if they desire to start a business then I would not consider your argument a strong one.

    If the business is open to the public, you have a right to patron it. Don't like it? Move somewhere else. Mexico's nice.
    No, there is no such thing as a business open to the public. The very idea is ludicrous. The property is private and as such no one has the right to patron it except the owner of the property.

    Now you're just making things up to see what sticks.
    Hardly. If you must be provided service then ultimately the business must use their resources to make this happen.

    If you offer a service, it must be available to anyone willing to pay for it.
    Don't work out, work in.

    Never eat anything that's served in a bucket.

    that's what she said

    So you also believe that blacks should choose a different lunch counter...and Rosa Parks should have chosen a different means of transportation....right?

    Right.....how dare blacks bitch about white restaurant owners refusing to serve them at their lunch counters! Bring back white only drinking fountains as well....right?

    Were they not trespassing on private property?

    Let us know when you all start protesting and suing stores for the 'no shoes, no shirt, no service' policies. Oh wait, that would require consistency on your parts.

    That's all you have? Is the misrepresentation intentional or just do to your lack of comprehension?
