    Geesh.
    No, I don't think that. Where did you get that idea?

    Geesh.
    Should Black people have just waited patiently until the old white folks in the South changed their minds?

    Your words.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    They didn't have to wait.

    Adding that even with that legislation, these old people didn't have to serve them anyway.

    Or do you honestly think that legislation is some magical cure all?

    Your words.
    You're making a leap based on your preconception of liberal thinking, but you're wrong.

    Discrimination is stopped by society as a whole. It's not acceptable on a personal OR federal level.

    edit: or state or local

    Really, so the moment that the civil rights act was passed, everyone stopped discriminating based on race?

    Once again making a leap based on preconceptions of liberal thinking.

    I didn't say that.

    If you're going to keep doing this there's no sense even trying to discuss the subject.

    So what you're saying then is that society as a whole, IE the PEOPLE not the GOVERNMENT can not for the most part stop discrimination?

    that it can ONLY be done with the governments help?

    People were already slowly understanding that race is a poor reason to deny someone services.
    If anything, the Civil Rights Act was a lagging effort behind what actual society was doing already.

    People give it way more credit than it deserves.
