    Much mischief seems to have ensued because people regard private property as public property. Newsflash: A private restaurant is not a public park.

    Then don't open a public business. No one forces you to. Just stick to the private clubs that exclude blacks, then you will not have to be near them.

    To you, does "public business" mean nothing more than "business"?

    What would you cite as an example of a business that isn't a public business?

    Public business, in this context, refers to privately owned businesses that are open to the public. In a private club, for example, you can exclude blacks. But if you open your business to the public, you cannot. Thems the breaks. Feel free to don the white hood privately.

    their whole argument is someone is not being treated fairly in their minds, so they want to crush right to property, because of how a person exercises that right.

    yet they cannot name a right for the buyer, who is on someone's property.......why?....because no exercisable rights exist.

    the point of the other side is, you are rude, and hateful...and we don't like it and are not going to tolerate it from you, even if we have to take your rights away.

    this is what happens, when the evils of democracy are exercised in AMERICA, IN THE TAKING AWAY OF LIBERTY......


    its no wonder I hate democracy as a form of government.

    democracy is the most vile form of government--James Madison

    So you consider all businesses to be public businesses.

    A private club, with private membership, which is not open to the public. One can have all the cross burnings and hood parties one wants therein.

    you don't address what I said........equality under the law, is for government to obey...not people, because people don't make laws.

    There will always be equal protection in the public sphere. Too bad. I'm sorry, but you'll just have to not open a business to the public, then you will not have to be near any black people.
