    You have no such right. (unless you want to pretend that you making up things and calling them rights in the 2010s makes them rights)

    Given the begging-the-question inherent in the OP, I find that.... doubtful.

    Congress recognized that right with the 1964 Civil Rights Act Title II. "After the Civil Rights Act of 1964 was passed, the Supreme Court upheld the law's application to the private sector, on the grounds that Congress has the power to regulate commerce between the States. The landmark case, Heart of Atlanta Motel v. United States, established the Constitutionality of the law,...."

    All rights are made up by someone.

    Congress doesn't determine what rights you have.

    All rights are made up by someone.
    If that is what you believe, you look rather foolish attempting to discuss them in a serious light.

    Do I need to point out the amount of ignorance and stupidity contained within your post? No, of course not, because you wouldn't understand. Luckily, the day will come when people like you die out.

    Discrimination is wrong. Nothing else to say.

The trouble is too many people don't have the foggiest idea what rights truly are but merely ape what they have heard. No one has the right to be free from discrimination, so my discriminating against you for whatever reason, is not violating your rights. Its just that simple but it is a difficult concept to relay to simpletons.
    Nobody has the right to be free from discrimination? Wrong. Hence the reason we have anti-discrimination laws. The right to be free from discrimination is an obvious implication. Its just that simple but it is a difficult concept to relay to simpletons.

    I support claiming that any form of Jim Crow is merely Socialism bailing out some Capitalists.

    Meanwhile back here in the real world, in the USA our legislators make laws that impact/determine our rights and the Supreme Court decides whether they are constitutional. If your business won't respect those laws they will be sued, fined or closed. That will happen even if someone's imaginary playmate or an 18th century philosopher told them that they have a particular right.
