    Omitting a group does not equate to "it's okay". As a matter of fact, just because a group is not listed doesn't mean it can't be listed and if enough people are finding they are being discriminated due to a particular reason , that group of people are free to talk with their representative because discrimination is not okay.

    So you admit there is a right to discriminate. Good to know.

    There is a reason I picked this argument and it's because no matter what people will get trapped by it if they at all defend human rights.

    I think the word you meant to use is "Polack", and it's a derogatory reference to a person of Polish descent.

    It obviously is ok unless somehow it is wrong for people to make choices in their life.

    Perhaps a misspelling, as is yours according to spellchecker. Please then elaborate as to the accurate and acceptable term. The Pollacks I've known call themselves Pollacks. I've never heard an alternative. Polandians?

    Remember, you can't have both. If a business refuses to serve someone because he's black, and he refuses to leave and the business calls the cops to enforce their "right"...it is at that moment that we have government-enforced racism.

    Is that really what we want?
    I don't think there really is a right to be "free from discrimination", however that would be interpreted.

    How do you have the freedom to make choices in your life towards your own person and your property if you can't discriminate? The real harm of these laws is that they fundamentally violate the sovereignty of people.

    Knock yourself out. Don't let me stop you from discriminating but if you own a business, you can put that hatred aside to sell your goods to 'people'.
