    Am I supporting racism?

    This question is being asked for an concrete argument relating to another thread.

    Suppose someone sets up an organization that advocates for a constitutional amendment that allows any and all businesses to refuse service to people based on their race.

    Does this scenario alone mean I support racism?

    All racists are bigots. But not all bigots are racists.

    So to respond to your post, IMHO, I would say that such a business supports bigotry and/or racism. What other reason or reasons could their be?

    When researching this issue it will be most often be found under categories like "The Origin of the Right to Exclude" or "Property and the Right to Exclude", etc, etc.. And it appears that the most controversial concepts regarding property are held by those who label themselves Libertarians. Most Libertarians believe that a person's property is sacred and that they have a right to allow or not allow any person access...regardless of their reasons. And this belief extends to all property owners that range from privately used property to publicly used property. In other words, Civil Rights Laws end outsider their door step.
