    Are you the owner of the company? If not then you are an employee. You have to do what your employer tells you do to or you can quit. You don't have a right to a job.

    Really, I need to show you that people can get into legal problems if they refuse service based on someone's attributes? A quick google search can give you cases. Denny's has been in hot water for such violations before as well as several other chains.

    So, only the owner is allowed to feel like a slave?

    Perhaps I should have clarified again. Remember what I mentioned previously? The 13th and 14th Amendments? I'm talking about Constitutionally. Not federal law.

    Employees are free to leave at any time with no lose of property. A business owner cannot.

    It couldn't be federal law if it was unconstitutional.

    A business owner can also leave at any time. He would not lose the property that was legally his.

    Actually it can be and is. Lots of things that are unconstitutional gets implemented all the time, even with SCOTUS's blessing.

    If he leaves his business he loses his business. Which is a part of his property.

    Yes, I agree. There are times SCOTUS has ruled incorrectly, but I disagree this is the case here.
