    You're still confusing those four-letter F words. I'd expand your vocabulary.
    Okay, so freedom only means from government intervention and not from human right's violation. Sounds repressive to human rights.

    What you are disregarding here is property rights. Those property rights trump privledges. Which means the owner of the property gets to dictate who he/she sells his property to in any transaction..which is a priviledge...which is trumped by property rights. Remember, the owner of the property also has the right to NOT sell his/her property at any given moment. This right has existed since people first started bartering. The owner of the property got to dicate whether the sell was going to happen or not.

    Okay, so prices and discounts can be decided freely, how about selling to certain people while limiting certain people from making a transaction due to race?

    For economic purposes, for the most part - yes.

    The problem we're having here is that I'm basing my argument on logic, rationale, and economic principle. You're basing it on emotional appeal.

    Being a Constitutional right is an opinion.

    Still free. Unfair and a prick move - but still free.

    Why is it logical to limit a person from making a purchase due to race?

    No, actually its not. If it was a Constitutional right then it would be in the Constitution in some form or another. It's not.

    It's logical to not impede another's choices. I don't enforce morality on others.
