    In section 4 of the opinion, the Court held that racial discrimination in restaurants had a significant impact on interstate commerce, and therefore Congress has the power to regulate this conduct under the Commerce Clause.

    health and safety is perplexing problem, when dealing with people.
    Let's assume no health or safety issue. Just having lights and such. Too bad for black people? Back to lanterns for them.

    They can secure their light from another source!

    the southern governments were creating and enforcing discrimination laws......government cannot do that.

    because it works to serve the interest of the people, a business owner works to serve his own interest, not that of the public.

    I've have read the ruling before. That doesn't change what the commerce clause actually gives the federal government the power to do. Thanks for linking to SC logic though.

    Well you just said southern governments did then said government can't. That's a little contradictory.

    Redheads should not be a protected class. Blondes, on the other hand, should. I am blonde.
    I look forward to your posts. They're to the point and usually give me a chuckle with the wit they contain. Thanks for your uplifting insight once again.
    Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.

    do you know of a case were this has happened?

    the laws of the past Jim crow laws, were not by individual people but by government creating laws and enforcing them against blacks.

    it was unlawful for whites to sell to blacks because of local and state laws.

    if large business tried to discriminate today, with social media, news, and constant protesting groups, the business would not survive.

They don't have a right to it if it belongs to someone else, takes the labor of someone else, or requires other people to agree to association to be provided.
