    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?
    As usual, you lefties dont even understand the terms you are using. Racism is in peoples heads. DISCRIMINATION is the act. The left is fine with discrimination, as an example we have affirmative action=public institutions discriminating base on skin color.

    Its tragic that the left has become so orwellian and hive-minded that they dont even understand the topics they wish to discuss-but MAN do they have an opinion.

    It has everything to do with it, guy - because every black man and woman who is discriminated against because of the color of their skin will think back to those days of slavery and Jim Crow - which wasn't really that long ago - and they will react in a way that you apparently won't allow yourself to expect.

    He's "tight" with black people, and therefore he's qualified to be a spokesman for them.

    This is not uncommon among liberal Whites who feel they can speak for Blacks. This is an interesting example of Thomas Sowell responding to just such a person.

    Im well familiar with that clip, its part of Friedman's Free to Choose series. Absolutely gutting to the left, I think. Its amazing watching the left assert that they are the arbiters of race-which is frankly the mindset that caused so much of the discrimination against blacks.

    Sowell deserves the Nobel Prize, but he's of the wrong political persuasion.

    You did not explain what rights were violated, you just made a ridiculous blanket statement with no backing.
    What does any of the stuff you just wrote have to do with the right of an American to be served at public accommodations when they are protected by civil rights laws? Of course you can be refused service for something like no shoes or lack of clothes - but that is NOT what we are talking about.......... and you darn well know it.

    And that is the right that is violated.

    Absolutely, one of the finest minds of the last 40 years. But he does not get in line at the liberal vote plantation and so he's vilified.

    So do you own any property? Do you feel as if you ought to be the one who decides who is allowed on your property?
    Once again - you dream up rights that people do not have and then bitch and whine that they cannot do as you please.
