    I agree it would be AWESOME if we didnt need rights but unfortunately thats not the case. Its a shame that there has to be a laws like that.

    and yes every single person find themselves protected by rights and that was my point. Not saying you but some of the very dishonest or uneducated think it only applies to small groups and they are factually wrong.

    No one is forcing you to open a public business.

    Just not for blacks, obviously. You would like to limit their freedom of movement, business association and opportunity in the public sphere. Because you want to wage economic war against a group in attempt to create a second class citizenry. Well, too bad... one cannot wage race war in the public sphere. Keep it to your private clubs. We will not have that senseless aggression poisoning our free market.

    A private business can do business with the government (i.e. the public) or it can do business with private individuals. In either case, the private business is still a private business, not a public business.

    False. We have every right to regulate externalities, legislate against fraud and ensure equal rights in the public sphere (which you choose to place your business into).

    false. I said....you!.....government can regulate me for health and safety issues......it cannot regulate me for being rude, and I don't create laws, ..so I don't have to treat you equal.

    equality under the law is for government...not people.

    Private property is private. It would seem you don't understand private property.
