    The word you're looking for is "fair". It's not "fair". It's very much free.

    You do know what the word "free" means in this case, right?

    If you do, you really don't know people half so well as you seem to think.
    Bold: Didn't I already say that the cops violated that guys rights? How can I not be getting that when I agreed that they violated his rights? As for what rights they violated, I don't recall them being charged with violating "the black guys right to not be discriminated against". Could you point it out to me please?

    I notice that once again you (and others) have refused to show proof that people have a right to not be discriminated against.

    It would only be free for the owner of property and not the consumer. It should be deemed a discriminatory market for the consumer.

    "Should be deemed" is not phrasology I've seen in any of my economic textbooks.

    It's still free. Period.

    You are missing the point. Discrimination happens all the time in the free market. It is part and parcel of the free market. Just like everything else in the world there are negatives and positives.

    It's only free to the property owner and not the consumer. Let's be honest.

    It's still free because it's not subject to intervention, nor regulation from the government.

    You're still confusing those four-letter F words. I'd expand your vocabulary.

    I'm often online at McDonalds next to seniors drinking discounted coffee.

    I could name so many that I'd surpass the character limit for a post.
