    Racism works both ways my friend. I used to date this black chick. I have never seen as many whites frown on mixed relationships as I have blacks. What's up with the racism of blacks against whites?

    I concede your point. There are still very many black racists, who hate whites. It is passed down generation to generation, and becomes an excuse to need special rights. It becomes an excuse to blame the white folk. It becomes an excuse to abuse equal opportunity laws.

    You're right. As a nation, we have a long way to go. Very little prejudice of whites against blacks, but the racism of blacks against whites is vile at times.
    There was plenty f time before laws were placed for it to change, but it didn't, so we don't need any alternative universe. MLK'S covered the waiting thing very well in his Letter From a Birmingham Jail.

    And please don't start the poor white people whining. As a white male I find that type of false crocodile tearing up shameful. Whites are not harmed in the least.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    The fine is issued for people not allowing others on their property and not doing business with those people. It's not simply a fine for any old crime, but a crime for practicing your right to association and your right to control access to your property. If are we to be free we must accept the prospect that people will do things we don't like when they practice their rights.

    Yes, just don't practice your right to liberty. Great solution.

    You said people were being forced and no one is. You can do a lot of things and still be a racist. Just not a business that serves the public.

    Yes I am aware that this is the case. My question to you is why/how does a large group of people acquire legitimate authority over others.

    Libertarianism = freedom for businesses ... not freedom for individuals.
    Libertarianism caters to the elite, never the common man, therefore it is absolutely hypocritical in it's idealism when they claim to want freedom for all.
    Jim Crow segregation laws were as aggressively against individual freedom as any law could be.
    Libertarians show their true identity when they favor the repeal of the CRA.

    There is nothing fake about my words. While dating this black girl, I was exposed to prejudices I've never seen from whites.
