    damage to others, what damage...feelings hurt?...that is not a crime.

    that's a ridiculous reply.

    all it is is you choosing to decide what is right or wrong.

    if you come into my burger business, and come up to my counter, and i say, "what will you have", and to take forever to make up your mind, and i say to you, "come-on you stupid idiot i dont have all day".

    do you have any legal recourse.........no!

    i just hurt your feelings by calling you names, your only opinion or to either take it .....or leave.

    you have no grounds to take me to court, because government is not in the business of moral behavior.

    No. I gave you a court case that spelled out the damage. If you'd read it, you'd know.

    Again, read history and the court cases I gave you. You'd look less foolish.

    The Govt. is in the business of ending racism though and you can either take it or leave.
    Don't you think we gave the people long enough to do it on their own before the govt. said NO MORE?
    Racism is a debilitating disease for a country and it must do what is needed to wipe it out.
    Think of the laws like flu shots for racists .

    sorry government is not in the morality business, it if was ......then it could declare abortion was illegal, becuase it determined its just wrong.

    or ban contraceptives, becuase its immoral to use them.

    and some history for you....back in the 80's' congress was floating the idea of it being illegal for people with aids to have sex.........that illegal, ........government is not in the morality business.

    you are saying government has authority to be the moral guardian.......i dont think you would feel that way if they did things you did not approve of..........like making government films, preaching homosexuality in wrong, using tax dollars. which they did during the 50's

    Exchanges are not zero sum games. By not buying, you are hurting not only yourself but the store owner, because he will not get your money. By not selling, the store owner is hurting not only those who he discriminates against but himself also--he wont get their money. So try again. Why not forbid customers from discriminating against the store owner? If everyone refuses to shop at a store because the owner is black, he will go out of business, and surely that hurts him, no?
